Finally. A Christmas cookie. The ONE cookie everyone would notice missing if it didn’t make an appearance on our cookie tray. It’s that well-loved and embodies Christmas for us.

It’s pretty to look at, has plenty of sprinkles, and satisfies young and old alike. Last year I made another version of sugar cookies right before the Christmas season hit. It was one of those times where we just couldn’t wait any longer to enjoy a scrumptious cookie and a birthday celebration seemed like the perfect excuse.

So when I realized that we were in the midst of cookie swap and cookie eating season, I didn’t need to think twice as to which cookie to make. This recipe is as classic as it’s going to get. For all of the cookie purists and sugar cookie lovers out there, you will really enjoy the taste and texture of these.

They definitely taste a lot like Christmas! [Read more…]

Golden Oreo Easter Truffles

Now that we have the first day of Spring under our belt and with Easter just a month away, I figured it was just about time to post a recipe to celebrate the season. I honestly could not wait to bust out all our decorations, buy fresh flowers, and taste-test some Cadbury mini eggs :).

As I was dreaming about the warm weather ahead, I couldn’t help but think about no-bake recipes and how much I love them. And when it comes to those recipes, I get most excited about truffles. They are my absolute favorite to eat and prepare. And judging from some of my past posts, I can tell how much you love them as well :).

Now Oreo Truffles have been around for a while, but rarely do I see anybody making them using Golden Oreos. I think they tend to get overshadowed by their chocolaty counterpart. I used to prefer traditional Oreos like most people, but during the last couple of years I have really come to love the golden ones. And since I adore them so much, I decided to create these truffles. One of the best decisions I made all week, ha. [Read more…]

Frosted Animal Cracker Confetti Cake Muddy Buddies

Are you ready for some more sprinkle-action today? I know I am and I have a slight suspicion that you are, too. I’ve been itching to create another Muddy Buddy recipe for you guys for a while now. Snack mixes like this one are so much fun to make – and I love trying out new flavors. There’s always something sweet and colorful being prepared in our little kitchen :).

Since making this bark a couple of weeks ago, I knew that I wanted to use cake batter infused chocolate in more ways than just one. I mean, how could I possibly refrain? Making things taste like cake and not even having to turn on the oven? It’s a brilliant concept.

Oh, and since no cake is complete without frosting, I just had to add Frosted Animal Crackers. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? I haven’t had those little crackers in forever and it didn’t take me very long to figure out why. You just can’t stop eating crackers shaped like elephants, hippos, and cats dipped in white and pink frosting and finished with nonpareils. I dare you. [Read more…]

Black and White Bakery-Style Doughnuts

Can you handle another sprinkle-filled post? I really wasn’t planning on topping these doughnuts with colorful sprinkles, but once I dipped them in a luscious glaze, they practically begged for some. And I just wasn’t tough enough to say no. Now that I am looking at these doughnuts, I am more than glad I grabbed a handful of rainbows. Never say no to sprinkles – lesson learned.

Doughnuts are one of my favorite breakfast items, snacks, and desserts. I love their versatility. I guess you could say I am somewhat obsessed. Always have been. It’s the one thing I could never say no to – my kryptonite, if you will.

Since I am such a doughnut fan, I was extremely hesitant to trying a baked version. I thought it sounded well in theory, but didn’t think they would satisfy as much as the “real” thing. Boy, am I ever glad to tell you how wrong I was. I am positive I’ve never been more surprised or more elated when my misconceived notions were shattered in our small MN kitchen. If you haven’t already, you have got to try these! [Read more…]

Cake Batter Golden Oreos Rainbow Cookies

Um, I stuffed cookies with cookie sandwiches and added cake mix, too. Can you tell it’s Friday?

Being the cookie addict that I am, I couldn’t wait another minute to whip these up. Oreos, cake mix, and don’t forget about the sprinkles. This combo is one of my favorites yet. It features everything I get most excited about. It may sound like a lot of different things thrown together into one cookie, but it works so well. A joy to look at and a partay in your mouth.

You won’t have to decide between cake or cookie anymore – you can have it all!

These cookies are a riff on my Thick and Chewy Reese’s Chocolate Chunk Cookies. I didn’t feel like playing around with a new recipe. I was looking for tested, approved, and foolproof. And I got exactly what I was hoping for. Incredible deliciousness. [Read more…]
