Hot Chocolate Brownies

Every year I think I'm going to want hot chocolate when I'm cold. So what do I do? I go out and buy one of those large canisters full of hot chocolate mix and only drink probably two cups of hot cocoa. While cleaning out my kitchen cabinets I stumbled upon a can of hot chocolate mix from last year that was about to expire. Instead of throwing the hot chocolate mix away, I thought to myself "what could I make with this?" I came up with Hot Chocolate Brownies, and yes, they're as good as they sound. Read more [...]

Black Candy Apples

Can we please talk about Halloween for a second? I'm going to say something that may sound crazy to some of you, others may feel my pain... Growing up we lived in a small town. My closest neighbor was a car drive away. I couldn't go trick-or-treating in my own neighborhood because the houses were simply too far apart. So I went to other towns to get candy and had to lie about where I was from just so I could get it. Since getting a house with my boyfriend last November, we now live on a quiet street Read more [...]

Classic Sugar Cookies

After perfecting my boyfriends favorite, chocolate chip cookie with this recipe. I knew I had to perfect my favorite, classic sugar cookies. I hit the nail on the head with this recipe. They are just the right thickness and they're oh so chewy (my favorite!). Luckily I have some self control. If I didn't the whole batch would have been gone the second they came out of the oven (yes, they're that good!). I love classic sugar cookies because there is no chocolate. Nothing distracts me from the true Read more [...]

Pretzel Crust Pizza Dough

You read that correctly! The pretzel crust pizza recipe is finally here. I'm kind of upset I waited so long to share this recipe. I've had the idea for months and as I was here waiting to for the right time, someone created the pretzel crust pizza before me. If you have a Little Caesars near by, you might have saw their advertisement for pretzel crust pizza. I have yet to try theirs, but the day I saw their ad I finally had to make my own. I couldn't hold back the pretzel crust pizza temptation any Read more [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies

Remember when I shared my recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting? I decided to top these brownies with that same frosting and boy are they heaven. If you're one of those people who love frosted brownies you're going to love these chocolate peanut butter frosted brownies. I was never one to enjoy frosted brownies until I tried these. That's when everything changed. Don't get me wrong, I still love plain brownies. Every once in awhile it's nice to change things up a bit though. If you make the Read more [...]

Simple Caramel Popcorn

It's almost autumn... so naturally that means it's time for caramel popcorn. Lots of it! What's even better about this caramel popcorn recipe is that it's super simple. The prep time is almost non-existent (okay not really but you know what I mean, right?) ;) I'm a huge fan of caramel popcorn. Last winter my father gave me one of those large popcorn tins for christmas. You can bet your bottom dollar that I ate all of the caramel popcorn first. Let's be honest, it's way too hard to resist. I love Read more [...]
