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.

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…]

Is there anything better than cookies that only take a couple of minutes to prepare from start to finish? Not in my world. Well, maybe there is. I have way too many feelings when it comes to chocolate for breakfast. Yes and yes.

I am blaming Trader Joe’s for today’s creation. If you still can’t get enough of pumpkin, TJ’s is your place. It’s the one store I look forward to visiting the most every week. Three words: All. That. Pumpkin.

From Pumpkin Body Butter (best ever), Pumpkin Croutons to Pumpkin Sea Salt Caramels. I love it all. And just when I thought it couldn’t get better, I picked up a box of Pumpkin Spice Granola. I am now unable to leave the house without a taste of it. I wish I was kidding.

It was only a matter of time before I ran out of conventional ways to enjoy said granola and incorporated it into cookies. Mornings never looked and tasted so yummey! [Read more…]

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I spent a large amount of my time working on a freelance project focusing on, wait for it, Christmas. That’s right. Our home was filled with sweet treats and with the aroma of the most wonderful time of the year. While I love working on side projects in my spare time, I couldn’t get over how weird it felt. I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on later this year, but for now I’m glad we’re still months away from said holiday and on the verge of a massive PUMPKIN explosion.

Oh, and don’t forget about chocolate, which is perfect no matter what season we find ourselves in.

I don’t know about you, but we are huge football fans around these parts. Now that the regular season is in full swing (finally), I am all about making foods and snacks that can be enjoyed while cheering on our favorite team and Fantasy Football players. And these cookies definitely hit the spot. [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…]
