Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter cups are a simple, well-loved treat that are fun to make. They’re easy, cheap, addictive and you don’t need an oven. I’m in. My friend brought these up to my cottage earlier this summer, and needless to say they were devoured. I’ve always been a fan of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups but I…

Hobbit Hole Cake

My inner geek was pretty satisfied eating a dwelling from a Tolkien novel. I made this cake for a friend’s birthday and I think they were pretty pleased with it. I normally make cupcakes because I’ve never been a big fan of cake myself, but after I was done putting it all together there was…

Bluth Frozen Chocolate Bananas

There’s always money in the banana stand. With the new season of Arrested Development coming out on Netflix, I thought I’d make a treat from the show. The show’s Facebook page posted the basic steps to making a Bluth banana the other day, so I tried it out and loved it. Feel free to get…

Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sprinkles

Cake batter in cookies is one of the greatest baking discoveries I’ve come across on the internet. My perfect cookie is soft, chewy, and colourful. These cookies check off all three of those requirements (plus they smell AMAZING) so I’m devouring them pretty quickly. This recipe is directly from Sally’s Baking Addiction, just like my…

Chocolate Hummus

I went to the One of a Kind Show recently and among the 450+ vendors there, the food booths were some of the most impressive (and affordable). One stand was selling a dozen different kinds of hummus, one of them being chocolate. I thought it was weird, but I tried it anyways because most things…

Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

The best thing about Valentine’s Day is undoubtedly the cookies. I got the cookie recipe from Created by Diane and just altered the choice of toppings. I used crushed hot chili flakes on top of semi-sweet chocolate (I’ve always wanted to try it) and it tastes really good! You can use crushed nuts, candy, sea…

Salted Chocolate Caramel Cookies

Whenever I see chocolate cookie batter out in stores I always drool over it but I’ve never attempted to make it myself. I was surprised at how well this dough turned out on my first try; it’s super easy and my friends and I had a great time making them. I used mini rolos for…

Peanut Butter S’more Brownies

Love s’mores? Me too. I made these for my friend’s birthday and just cut them up into squares instead of baking a birthday cake. I’m personally not a huge fan of just plain ol’ cake, so these were a major upgrade. These brownies are pretty easy except beware of burning your marshmallows. Kind of like…

Gluten-Free Nutella and Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am in love with these cookies. Gluten-free baking can be tedious because the dough can dry out and crumble. These cookies are nutella-stuffed, made with brown butter and sea salt, and topped with some more chocolate. Needless to say, these are some pretty awesome gluten-free cookies that don’t dry out and taste amazing. I…

Double Chocolate Cake Pops

Pretty much any food you put on a stick is great. Candy apples, fudgesicles, and of course, cake pops. I adore cake pops because they’re bite-sized and you have endless options for decorating. This wasn’t my first time making cake pops, and I always run into a few problems, but they turned out really yummy…
