Turtle Bites

One of the easiest and tastiest sweet treats you can make in the comfort of your own home. The perfect crowd pleaser as well!

Hello Friday! The weekend is finally here and I’m in the mood for something slightly salty, a lot of sweet, and a tad bit of crunch. How about you? Also, lazy Friday nights call for easy peasy snacks… at least in my books. The last thing I want to do after the work week is spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I love our little kitchen, but after a long day I’d much prefer our couch, ha.

That’s right. The hubby and I are the kind of crazy people that love to stay in, watch a movie aka Netflix, and enjoy some mouthwatering food. Yup, we’re old young people. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Homemade food, a comfy spot and my handsome man – can you blame me?

Even better when you have Turtle Bites nearby ;). [Read more…]

Samoa Bark

Inspired by one of the most loved Girl Scout Cookies – Samoas. This candy bark is just as addicting and the definition of the word easy!

And so they strike again. No matter what, I can’t escape Girl Scout Cookies. Actually, I can’t escape the thought of them. I’ve been steering clear of the cute little girls and all of the Facebook posts posted by their parents to boost their sales. Because I know better. That box or two would disappear in a matter of minutes and start a delicious cycle I can’t give in to right now. I am fully aware that summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to put down the cookies and start hitting the trails.

But wait! You might be thinking that you’re not looking at diet-friendly food right now. And you would be correct. I’m fully aware. This one’s for my motivation. I run and lead a mostly healthy lifestyle, so that when the mood strikes, I know just where to turn. I’ve said it before and I say it again, I am all about moderation and never depriving myself. Because if I do, I know that my next opportunity of treating myself will move into binging. So I’m always allowing room for a little something sweet and today’s treat hits just the spot!

Happy almost weekend, everyone! As promised, I have a colorful and sprinkle-loving treat for you today. Which happens to be a no-bake recipe as well…. sort of. At the beginning of the week, I told you that a no-bake surprise was heading your way and I actually didn’t take into consideration that in order to make these truffles, you have to bake brownies first. Or buy a pan of brownies, or use leftovers – is there even such a thing as leftover brownies??

Not in my world.

So yeah. I definitely failed to think things through, but hopefully I can make it up to you with these adorable little bites nonetheless. Would it help if I told you that they are stuffed with more chocolate?

Yep, I did. My crazy valentine-loving mind wanted brownies, sprinkles, chocolate covered, and candy yumminess all in one. And I totally made it happen. Let me tell you more whilst floating on cloud 9. [Read more…]

Pistachio & Cranberry Chocolate Bark

A special treat that requires only 4 ingredients, 10 minutes of active time and a true chocolate lover. These are the sweetest times!

And so another holiday week begins. Can I just say that I am totally and completely loving the fact that we’re in the midst of all things Christmas right now? Even though we’ve yet to finish our Christmas shopping, have a couple more get togethers on our calendar and have overall been considerably more busy, I will gladly and always make time for something nice that’ll please my sweet tooth. Especially when it happens to be one of the easiest yet most satisfying treats around – Chocolate Bark.

And this one is not just any old bark. With the layers of dark and white chocolate plus the addition of pistachios & cranberries, I have officially found the one that embodies Christmas for me.

Everyone will have enough time to make this one. You will not regret it! [Read more…]

Welcome back to the first week of December. Eeek!

The most wonderful time of year has finally arrived. And no words could truly describe how thrilled I am. We had a great Thanksgiving enjoying family, taking some time off, and just hanging out. I am ready to take this season by its jingle bells, ha!

The Deliciously Yum halls are fully decked, my Christmas baking list is already getting longer, and Christmas music has officially taken over my life. As have Christmas movies and all things peppermint.

It’s by far the most iconic and well loved Christmas flavor if you ask me.

Since peppermint patties are the things I can’t get enough of right now, I got the idea for these truffles while unwrapping yet another patty and wishing that peppermint chocolates perhaps with a little bit of a crunch could be part of my already wonderful peppermint patty experience.

These truffles hit the nail on the head. So good you most definitely need to try them for yourself! [Read more…]
