Mini Grasshopper Brownie Delights

Alright, Monday, let’s do this. When you don’t really want the week to start, you procrastinate by dwelling on that mind-blowing dessert you’ve made over the weekend. It includes being thankful for the invention of brownies, pondering the sweet yumminess of homemade frosting, reimagine the melted chocolate, and wishing you had another bag of those mint chocolates hiding in your cupboard. Because you’d do it all over again. In a heartbeat.

We all know those food combos that belong together like no other. From peanut butter and jelly to macaroni and cheese, and most importantly milk and cookies, most of us adore foods that love each other.

Another one of those combos has always been dark chocolate and mint for me. From the time I can remember, mint chocolate chip ice cream has been my go to. I also recall that my Grandma used to have bars of dark chocolate filled with a luscious mint cream ready for an after dinner treat when we came to visit her. Chocolate, mint and I go way back.

In honor of my nostalgia and because I really wanted to buy mint chocolates, I present to you Mini Grasshopper Brownie Delights. [Read more…]

A pan of bars that’s always irresistible. Satisfying your sweet and salty cravings without having to turn on the oven. Wheeeee!

No-Bake Sweet and Salty Cereal Bars

These bars make me feel like I’m a kid again. I get excited just at the sight of them. And I figured now was the best time to feature another no-bake treat. Isn’t that all we want when the temperatures won’t give us a break, but we’re still looking for a homemade treat? I know it’s all my heart desires ;).

No-Bake Sweet and Salty Cereal Bars

This time around, I knew that I wanted to combine sweet and salty ingredients. If you’ve been reading my blog for a little while, you are well aware that I love that combo oh so much. I mean, how many salted caramel recipes have I featured in the past? Too many to list and there’s no end in sight. But this time around, I decided to go with pretzels, pecans, and a fun amount of m&m’s. And the outcome was more than fab. [Read more…]

Extra Clustery Coconut Oil Honey Almond Granola

I never thought that I could become obsessed with granola. Not only am I not a breakfast girl (though I’m slowly turning into one), but I especially don’t understand the obsession with cereal. Now cereal makes a great snack if eaten dry, but the addition of milk that turns it into a soft and soggy mess… no, thank you.

That’s exactly where granola comes into play.

Whether I pour milk into my bowl of granola, add it to yogurt, or swirl into my oatmeal, this clustery granola maintains its crunch and overall loveliness. It also makes for a great snack any time of day! Love the versatility. [Read more…]

Chocolate Frosted Molten Lava Cupcakes

We’ve all heard of Molten Lava Cakes – the same decadence can be found in these Cupcakes topped with the most perfect and simple Chocolate Frosting.

Chocolate Frosted Molten Lava Cupcakes

It was only a matter of time before my chocolate addiction struck again. Out of nowhere I was in the mood for a molten lava cake over the weekend. I was also under the misconception that it would take me an eternity to make my own and almost didn’t bother to do any research regarding that amazing dessert. Once I learned just how easy it is to prepare it in the comfort of my own home, I was more than game. Wouldn’t you run into the kitchen if you knew that it takes less than 30 minutes and only 5 ingredients to indulge in the molten lava goodness? That’s exactly what I did.

But I didn’t leave it at the standard molten lava cake. I decided to turn the recipe into cupcakes and whip up a homemade chocolate frosting to go along with it. Because you can’t have a cupcake without a finger-lickin’ frosting. Plus, that meant more chocolate for meeeee! [Read more…]

Malted Milk Ball Cookies

And the cookie cravings strike again. Also, candy. And what do you do when you can’t decide which one to go for? That’s right. You combine both of them into one. You might also pretend that you’re making them for the blog in order to have an excellent excuse and not feel like you’re just in the mood to indulge and have a serious lack of self-control. Which is the real reason behind what’s happened in my kitchen, of course.

Malted Milk Ball Cookies

While malt-flavored doesn’t sound like the most delicious thing to me, I can tell you that it totally is. Especially when you find double of it in a sweet treat like these cookies. Malted milk powder and malted milk balls. These cookies will practically melt in your mouth and give you all of those happy feelings. Exactly what a cookie should do! [Read more…]
