Chocolate Easter Bunny Nest Treats

Made some Easter treats for the neighbors. Came out pretty cute I think! I found this fun little Celebrate It Easter Nest mold at Michaels (see below) and decided to get creative. I made some chocolate cake batter (from a box), spooned the batter into the molds and baked as directed. It made 24 nests. … Continue reading

White Chocolate Lemon Bread

This. Was. Amazing! I want to make more right now but if I do, I’ll eat it all. Bonus, it was super easy to make. (If you look closely, you can tell that I baked this in my Nordic Ware Lemon Loaf Pan.) (Photo cred to my friend Stefonee who I made the bread for … Continue reading

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

Cookie Butter Truffles

These were delicious! And so very easy to make. I’ve made them twice since I found this recipe – one batch of Halloween themed truffles and another batch just to experiment with different things to roll them in (see above picture) and they were delicious both times. Highly recommend! 1 1/2 cups pretzel sticks 2/3 … Continue reading

Sourdough Peach Cobbler

The hubs loves peach cobbler and said this was a good one. Me? I’ll choose chocolate every time over a fruity dessert. But I love him so I make him peach cobbler. Occasionally. FRUIT LAYER 3 pounds whole ripe peaches 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg … Continue reading
