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…]

Take 5 Cookies

Chocolate Cookies inspired by my most loved candy bar – Take 5.

Things are getting real. Thanksgiving is almost here and I’m preparing by munching on some fabulous cookies. Because no matter how busy things get, there’s always time to take a cookie break. And no holiday would be complete without them.

Right now I am just trying to soak in the excitement before the big day. Since the “eves” of holidays are one of my favorite parts of any special occasion, I already woke up giddy this morning.

One more night and I’ll be able to eat all the stuffing I possibly can. That’s right I am all about that stuffing. What about you? What are you looking forward to the most?

But in the meantime, I’m keeping myself occupied with these cookies. Because if we’re really being honest, nothing beats an amazing cookie. Especially stuffed with caramel, chocolate chunks, pretzel pieces and peanut butter chips.

You know you want one. [Read more…]

Salted Caramel & Chocolate Filled Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint Cookies filled with Salted Caramel and Chocolate. These are some yummy little bites!

And so another fun weekend comes to an end. Between spending most of our time with friends and family all weekend long (it doesn’t get much better than that), my hubby found a couple of hours to put up our Christmas lights outside. We usually try to get that checked off of our list before the first snow fall, but weren’t quick enough this time around. Yep, it happened. Earlier last week we received quite a few inches of the white stuff and our surroundings looked and felt like a winter wonderland.

So naturally I couldn’t help but listen to Christmas tunes all week long. Can you blame me?! Saturday morning was no exception. And while my husband was installing our lights, the noise he made reminded me and our kitties of someone else who likes to make a serious clatter on roofs towards the end of December… and out of the sudden I felt the need to whip up a batch of cookies.

It was absolutely wonderful! [Read more…]

Chocolate Pot de Creme for One

Ever have a serious craving for chocolate? Nothing satisfies quite like a Chocolate Pot de Crème, especially when you don’t have to share. This one’s just for you!

This fancy dessert is a cinch to prepare, but isn’t near as simple when it comes to taste, you guys. This may be one of the best chocolate treats yet. It’s hard to put into words how wonderful it really is. Creamy, rich, silky and indulgent are a few words that instantly come to mind. This dessert is definitely upping the game when it comes to my chocolate obsession.

Another recipe I’ve been wanting to make for the longest time and finally checked off my list. Oh, and it was quickly added to the list of things to make over and over again. Because it’s da bomb.

‘Nuff said. [Read more…]

Happy November, friends!

I am so excited that this month has finally arrived. Not only are we this much closer to Turkey Day and Christmas, of course, but one of my personal favorites is just around the corner. My hubby’s birthday. I look forward to celebrating his special day every year and this one is no exception.

We’ll have a big birthday celebration here on the blog next week, and in the meantime I’ll be sharing a couple of recipes I’ve been making in preparation.

Um, is there anything better than a big piece of cake to enjoy on your birthday? I am all about chocolate and couldn’t help but top this one with a luscious chocolate glaze.

Before I get into exactly what I’m loving about this cake, I should probably let you know that the only reason why this cake didn’t make the cut for birthday week, is the fact that it screams Kathi instead of Adam. Hahaha.

Nonetheless, it’s utterly delicious and would make the day of any chocolate lover. [Read more…]
