Dark Choclate Pirouline Crescent Rolls

I bought way to many of these rolled wafer cookies for the dessert charcuterie boards I made so I’ve been looking for recipes to use them in. This one was yummy but really only yummy fresh out of the oven because when they sit the cookie gets a little soft and mushy so not very … Continue reading

Christmas Dessert Charcuterie Board

I got to make another dessert charcuterie board, this time for Christmas Book Group! Now if I could just find a job making dessert charcuterie boards, my life would be complete. I wanted to mix it up so it wasn’t exactly the same as the board for Bunco so I made a few things for … Continue reading

Highly recommend! 1 1/2 cups pretzel sticks 2/3 … Continue reading

Blondie Sticks

Cute right? And tasty too! I made these for Porch Treats yesterday. I made two pans which made almost 50 bars and they were all taken by the neighborhood kids. I dipped the edges that you cut off to make the blondie sticks nice and flat and around the same size and those were so … Continue reading

Mini Treat Kabobs

I have been working the past couple of months at my day job in film and television so haven’t had a chance to do porch treats in awhile. (For an explanation of porch treats, click here.) But I have some time off now so decided to do porch treats yesterday. I’ve seen this idea a … Continue reading
