I almost didn’t post this cake. It has flaws and wasn’t up to par with my perfectionist self, then I thought…but it tastes good! It might not look pinterest perfect, but this chocolate stout beer cake with beer frosting still deserves it’s moment. And sometimes, it’s ok to post a project with flaws. I know when I see someone else do it, it makes me feel a little more adequate. I’m not a professional cake maker, and don’t claim to be. But I love making cakes (and eating them!), and this cake is just one more notch in my cake baking experience column.
These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert. Check out the recipe below!
I have an obsession with whoopie pies. Macarons were in the spotlight for awhile there, but I’m definitely team whoopie pie. Anyone else with me? They are simple to make and filled with cream or frosting. (What’s not to love about that?) Plus, you can transform them into a fun Halloween themed dessert in a pinch too! These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert…and you guys know I’m all about that!
They appeal to both kiddo’s and adults alike and, in my opinion, desserts are soooo much better when they are infested with worms! 😉
This pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a delicious alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving dessert and it’s easy to make too!
Pumpkin…the mascot of October and the pie of choice for November. But, I have a confession to make. I hate pumpkin pie. Loathe. Maybe that’s a better word. I’ve tried to choke down a bite every single Thanksgiving and regardless, my taste buds reject it every time. I don’t get it. I like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin spice lattes, and anything else that the stores stock on the shelves during the month of October…but pumpkin pie? Noooope. Can’t. Do. It.
I know I’m in a segregated group of weirdo’s, but alas, here I am. Pumpkin pie-less. Until today!
With a few simple adjustments, this pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a solid replacement for the Thanksgiving staple. (And one I’d gladly eat instead!)
This chocolate chip cookie dough fudge recipe is so easy to make and deeeeeelicious! It would make a perfect gift too, but once you try it, I have a feeling you’ll want to keep it all to yourself!
On my current quest to be healthier (and because my boyfriend also happens to be super fit and works in the sports industry) I’m attempting to wake up early to work out. I honestly have no idea what I’m thinking, because I am anti early mornings, but my schedule has been so crazy busy lately and I feel like the only way I can fit them into my schedule is to actually wake up early to do it. Today was day one and I’m going to say it was not a complete success, but not a complete failure either. I still woke up earlier than normal, but not early enough to fit in a full and complete workout. So I did a core workout instead. Eh, can’t win them all. I will say that I did feel good after, soooooo I’m going to consider that a bonus. But, it’s FRIDAY and I’m posting this ahhhhh-mazing recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough fudge, so today is a good day regardless. This is why I need to workout guys…I call it balance.
I’d do just about anything for dessert and if that means I need to start waking up earlier so that I can eat this fudge, I’ll do it.
Don’t worry…I’m fully aware that it’s currently September and I’m over here posting snow cones. But, to plead my case, it was 91 degrees yesterday, so I don’t feel too bad about making these yummy treats instead of sipping on Pumpkin Spice Lattes at this point of the season. Trust me. I’ll have pleeeeenty of PSL time in my future, considering we won’t see warmer temps in Utah until May next year. So I’m just going to be over here enjoying the sun a little bit longer. If you’re like me and still embracing the warmth, these strawberry snow cone printables are the perfect way to turn a boring old snow cone into the cutest little frozen treat!
From what I’ve read around the web, I’m not the only one intimidated by the thought of making my own marshmallows. I don’t know what it is about those pillowey little clouds of sugar, but they are intimidating AF. (Don’t you guys agree?!) I’ve attempted them once before, only to throw the whole batch in the trash, but my stubbornness won out and I gave them another shot. And, boooooy, am I glad that I did! Not only are they actually really easy to make when you get the concept down, but they are sooooo much better than store bought mallows. I’m not even a marshmallow girl, but I’d definitely snack on a few of these mint chocolate marshmallows!
