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…]

Happy Monday! Did you have a lovely Valentine’s Day? My hubby and I had the most amazing weekend. Just like the weatherman predicted Friday night, with a high of 2 on Saturday, V-Day called for lots of snuggles. Something we had no problem getting on board with, ha. We were all about comfort food and enjoying some amazing chocolates. Adam got me the sweetest assortment of truffles from a local chocolaterie and I couldn’t have been happier. My favorite man and decadent chocolate?! Best day ever!

As I sat wishing that the weekend didn’t have come to an end, I realized that some of you might not have to go back to work just yet. We are back in the office today, but if I had another day off, I know exactly what I’d do. Bake a batch of the most scrumptious cookies.

So I took the liberty and pre-made you my current cookie obsession! [Read more…]

Holiday Mint Cookies

This may be Santa’s favorite cookie. If he is anything like us, he will not be able to keep his fingers off the cookie plate.

Hello, fellow cookie lovers! How was your weekend? Adam and I had the best time visiting lots of friends and enjoying the Christmas season with those who matter most to us. When we made the initial plans to get on the road and travel to Iowa, I remember being worried about the weather. I am always hesitant to go anywhere when there is lots of snow in the forecast and temperatures are dropping extremely low. But have you noticed the absence of weather talk here on the blog lately? Things are super warm (high 40s) and there’s not a single flake of snow on the ground as of right now.

Things are feeling a little weird, but the hubby and I are loving it. We’re not being trapped inside by Mr. Frost, have no snow to shovel, and most importantly aren’t freezing cold. Running errands and having full feeling in all of my limbs is a beautiful thing. And even though we aren’t covered in anything white, we are definitely feeling Christmas in the air.

Which may or may not be largely due to these Holiday Mint Cookies. Who needs snow when you have cookies to get you in the mood? I take cookies over winter anytime ;). [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…]

Is there anything better than a big bowl of ice cream? How about Homemade Ice Cream on a Friday night? Quite possibly the best thing ever.

Since July is National Ice Cream Month, I really wanted to share my very favorite recipe with you. It’s been around forever and ever. This ice cream is hard to beat, in fact, I have yet to taste one that satisfies and tastes better than this easy peasy frozen wonderfulness. It’s that good!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? Mine is obviously Mint Chocolate Chip. Always has been and probably always will be. Whatever your favorite may be, you can most likely recreate your own, using this recipe as a base.

Back in the day (before Adam developed lactose intolerance), we would practically live on this ice cream. I made an uncountable number of different flavors and seriously had the best time experimenting in the kitchen. [Read more…]
