Hey Everyone! Yep, Halloween is finally here. Today’s high is a balmy 37 degrees. Just like that we’re saying hi to winter. We can’t really complain though. This fall has been absolutely gorgeous and the weather was beyond perfect. Ever year I am hopeful that the kids will be able to go trick or treating without having to dress warm underneath their adorable costumes, but so far no such luck. Oh well, the extra “stuffing” definitely adds to the cuteness factor.

And just in case you’re anything like me (aka childless) and aren’t able to dig into your munchkin’s candy stash, I have an amazing recipe for you today. Because in my mind Halloween is all about the sweet stuff.

Also, if you find yourself left with ridiculous amounts of candy corn or if you do have kids, but they didn’t return with any butterfinger bars, then listen up.

This is where candy lovers unite! [Read more…]

Halloween Bark

It’s Candy Bark Time. Besides chocolate, you’ll find marshmallows, candy corn and peanuts in one of my favorite barks to date!

Happy, happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? Maybe getting ready for a Halloween party or finishing your kid’s costume?

I’m going to be honest, Halloween isn’t my holiday. I’ve never understood the fascination with creepy and scary things. I’m a total wimp and honestly cannot wait for it to be over. Which means our neighbors across the street will finally take down their bloody zombie ghost from the front door. Even though it’s been there a couple of weeks now, I am still taking a double take every time I look out our window. Enough already! November 1st can’t come soon enough.

Said date also means that Halloween candy will be on sale. Now that’s something I can get on board with. I might have to move my weekly shopping trip around a bit just so I can snag a bag or two. If you ask me, you can never have enough candy corn around the house. I know some people aren’t a huge fan, but when you combine candy corn with peanuts and chocolate, you have yourself a treat that’s hard to beat.

Unless you throw it all together and make yourself this Halloween Bark. Mind BLOWN! [Read more…]

Hey all! Happy Friday!

Alright, I should have pronounced this week pumpkin week from the start. But just in case you were looking for a non-pumpkin treat today, this recipe can be made two ways.

It is the perfect way to celebrate Friday and is sure to please everyone. Especially those that have a sweet tooth and are looking for something to savor all weekend long ;).

Also, if you’re into Heath bars or homemade candy in general, you’re welcome.

Because this recipe whips up in no time and is easy as can be, it has become one of my favorite things to make. It never ceases to surprise me how easy it is to make something so delicious and utterly scrumptious.

Because of this food blog, I have gained so much knowledge on how to make some of my favorite treats. It’s a terrible thing, and by terrible I mean absolutely wonderful! [Read more…]

Candy Corn Peanut Butter Cups

Candy Corn, Peanuts, Chocolate. Do I need to say more? Best candy creation ever!

Today’s recipe is for everyone who can’t stop reaching into that bag full of candy corn. Oh, and peanut butter cup lovers too.

My affection with everything peanut butter and chocolate is well documented on this blog. I even have a super simple recipe for homemade peanut butter cups (that require only 2 ingredients) already on the blog. When I’m in a cinch, I totally whip up a batch of those and have my way with them. But today’s version is slightly different. I jazzed it up a bit and made some delicious additions.

I actually got the idea while eating a mix of candy corn, roasted peanuts, and chocolate chips the other day. Best fall snack… hands down! So I thought that the only thing better would be a handheld sweet. And I was totally right. All of my cravings in one little cup.

Addictive little things, these are. [Read more…]

Nutella Truffles

 Mondays call for chocolate and what better way than in the form of truffles?! These are not your average truffles though, they’re made with Nutella!

Happy Monday morning to you! This weekend seemed to have passed in lightning speed, which I’d foreseen. Time always flies fast when you’re having fun. And the last couple of days were packed with more than enough.

I’ll have some pictures to share with you later this week, but I first need to sort through image after image of mouthwatering food. Meanwhile, why don’t we concentrate on something else that’s also more than drool-inducing: Nutella Truffles.

Since chocolate basically runs through my veins, there is no escaping Nutella. Whoever invented that luscious chocolate spread and basically made it perfectly acceptable to enjoy chocolate first thing in the morning, was a pure genius.

But it certainly doesn’t have to stop there. There are so many different ways to enjoy it throughout the day and right now, incorporating it into truffles, is my favorite by far. [Read more…]
