“Frozen” Blue Velvet Cupcakes

In my last post, I wrote about my daughter’s Frozen themed birthday party. We made a beautiful Frozen snowflake cake with three layers of chocolate and vanilla cake inside. To go with the centerpiece, we also made these wonderful blue velvet cupcakes. The cupcake base is actually a Duncan Hines cake mix, but we gave […]

“Frozen” Chocolate & Vanilla Layer Cake with Vanilla Frosting

  My daughter recently turned five years old. Weeks in advance, she had requested a Frozen themed birthday party. We had the streamers, the balloons, the outfit, the whole nine yards. The only thing we needed was the cake. Last year (for the first time ever), I saved myself hours in the kitchen and bought […]

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Fudge

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie…I’ve been making it since I was a teenager. Most of the time I make fudge using chocolate chips of some sort, but this recipe is unique in that it uses only peanut butter for the base.  I also add pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla extract for extra flavor. […]

Hershey Lover’s Brownies

For Easter this year, I decided to make one of my daughter’s very favorite desserts, the I Love Hershey Kisses Brownies that I developed back in 2011. The brownies live up to their name; they are loaded with Hershey chocolate, from the cocoa powder to the kisses (which make an appearance in both the brownie […]

Chocolate Almond Fudge

One of the fudges that makes its rounds at Christmas is chocolate walnut fudge. I decided to switch things up after the holidays, and made the recipe with almonds instead of the walnuts. The resulting treat was smooth and creamy as ever, and the almonds gave it a taste reminiscent of a Hershey bar with […]

Mint Oreo Fudge with Kraft Chocolate Marshmallow Bits

Every couple of weeks, I like to send my husband (the mathematics teacher) to school with a treat for his students as a reward for good behavior. I often end up making Oreo fudge, as that seems to be their favorite. This time I mixed things up a bit by making it not only mint […]

White Chocolate Sprinkle Hearts

My four year old daughter is very excited about Valentine’s Day this year. A few days ago she spotted my Wilton silicon heart mold tray in the cupboard. Since then, she has been asking to make Valentine treats with it. Two years ago, I used star silicon molds to make patriotic white chocolate M&M stars […]

Brown Sugar Heath Fudge

I had a baking “emergency” a few days ago. Whilst in the process of making several varieties of fudge, I realized I had no granulated sugar left in the house. (Pretty bad for a food blogger, right)?! Instead of giving up on my fourth and last batch of fudge, I tweaked my recipe and used […]

Just in time for Christmas, I have a new pudding chip cookie recipe for you. This one is made with instant chocolate fudge pudding mix and a bag of the new holiday mint M&M’s. The candies are the perfect addition to these fudgy, cakey, delicious chocolate cookies. Holiday Mint M&M Fudge Pudding Cookies   Print […]

Winter Oreo Fudge

If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I love to come up with new and unique fudge recipes. This batch is a play on my favorite Oreo fudge. I made this homemade candy festive by incorporating Winter Oreos with red filling and some red food coloring to the […]
