From what I’ve read around the web, I’m not the only one intimidated by the thought of making my own marshmallows. I don’t know what it is about those pillowey little clouds of sugar, but they are intimidating AF. (Don’t you guys agree?!) I’ve attempted them once before, only to throw the whole batch in the trash, but my stubbornness won out and I gave them another shot. And, boooooy, am I glad that I did! Not only are they actually really easy to make when you get the concept down, but they are sooooo much better than store bought mallows. I’m not even a marshmallow girl, but I’d definitely snack on a few of these mint chocolate marshmallows!
I’m all about unexpected and fun details for my parties. The littlest things can make a huge difference and can be the details that your guests really remember. And Thanksgiving is no exception! Today’s easy DIY is a funny twist on a classic Thanksgiving tradition that will have everyone feeling lucky!
These DIY chocolate Thanksgiving wishbones are so simple to make, but really add such a fun and unique twist to your table. I love the idea of using them for place cards or even just for an added fun element at the kids table (even though you know the adults are going to be jealous too!)
Today’s delicious project definitely borders on the line of gross and cute. I can’t decide where I’m at on this one. BUT, given that it’s a Halloween project and I’m all about upping the gruesome factor, I’m going to consider it a win either way. These edible halloween brain raspberry truffles are easy to make and will gross out all of your party guests! They would make the perfect mad scientist themed treat, or will excite even the hungriest group of zombies. So head into the lab, grab a scalpel, and let’s harvest some braaains!

Spring is finally here (despite snow in the Utah forecast this week…why?!) and Summer is right around the corner. Is it just me, or do you feel like you seem to have more house guests and people stopping by unexpectedly when the weather is nicer? Warm temps make people want to gather together, and that means being prepared to entertain!
Today’s recipe for chocolate shortbread peanut butter tarts is the perfect after dinner treat or afternoon snack to serve with your favorite coffee, and I also have a sneaky little tip to share that will impress your guests with some barista level skills, without using an espresso machine! It’s also going to keep you out of the kitchen so you can actually enjoy time with your guests too!
These edible floral chocolate bars are a cinch to make and would be a gorgeous gift idea too! Check out the easy recipe!
Don’t get me wrong. I like flowers, but I LOVE chocolate. I’ll always pick something edible over something that’s going to wilt and die in a few days. BUT, combine the two together and you have a winning combination on your hands! These edible floral chocolate bars are a CINCH to make, are gorgeous (no, really, I am sharing 8 million photos because they are just too pretty), and would make the perfect gift for mom this mother’s day! They’d also be great to gift to a bestie, or honestly, just to make and enjoy yourself! Who really wants to give these away anyway…? Not me!
Chocolate, carbs, and Cadbury Mini Eggs…what’s not to love about these Chocolate Easter Cinnamon Rolls?! Check out the yummy and easy recipe!
I have something that I need to admit to you guys. I’m addicted to Cadbury Mini Eggs. I always intend to buy one bag every year when spring and Easter season hit, (because obviously there’s no resisting these little guys and I’m not about to pass them up) but I find myself finishing the bag before I’ve even realized they’re gone. Which then, of course, means that I have to return to the store and purchase another one. (Obvi). It also means that I have an addiction and a problem. The first step is admitting it, right? What makes these little chocolaty eggs so damn good?! Cadbury, I’m onto you. But instead of trying to fight it, I figured that I’d just give in this year. I’m combining a few of my favorite things, breakfast, chocolate, and Cadbury mini eggs into one delicious recipe that is perfect to serve up on Easter morning, for the kiddos or adults alike. These chocolate Easter cinnamon rolls are beyond delish and for a homemade cinnamon roll recipe, they are actually really easy to make too. Win win! 😉
It’s always a good idea to serve some sweet options to balance out all of the salt that’s usually served on game day. This chocolate brownie football cheese ball will do just that!
I’m pretty excited. The big game is almost here and I’m definitely looking forward to it, except for the fact that my team didn’t even make it to the playoffs (Ravens, you let me down guys). Either way, I’m a sports girl. I’ll be cheering on the underdog and stuffing my face full of delicious snacks, because if your team’s not playing, isn’t that the whole point?
Sure, someone usually brings the chips, the dips, the beer, and the smoked sausages, but you can become the new snack MVP by bringing something a little sweeter for the occasion…a yummy chocolate brownie football cheese ball!
Chocolate dipped mini fruit bouquets are the perfect sweet treat to gift your loved ones for Valentine’s Day this year!
Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is in a week? I can’t. I’m still trying to figure out where January went! As I get older, it seems that my days are more busy and time seems to pass a whole lot faster. It’s hard to remember to take in all of life’s little moments and appreciate them. But there is one thing that I’ll be appreciating this upcoming weekend…70 degree weather! I’m heading down to Las Vegas for an annual weekend trip with close friends and family and couldn’t be more thrilled to escape the snow and cold.
Getting out of town for the holidays is always more fun for me. I feel like it takes a lot of pressure off to plan really extravagant things and to just enjoy the people you’re with. Plus, who doesn’t like a change of scenery every once in a while?!
If you’re staying home and stressing over what to make for the loved ones in your life, I’m sharing a cute little project, that’s fun for the kids to make too!
These mini fruit bouquets are easy to make, super cute, and a lot less expensive than online options too. Plus, they’re healthy. Ok, maybe not exactly “healthy” but healthier. (Kinda hard to justify something dipped in milk chocolate, but, hey…fruit counts for something, right?)
