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!

If you’re anything like me, and find any excuse to eat dessert for breakfast, this recipe for glazed donut bread pudding is going to be your meal of choice!
I must confess, I’m a donut freak. Any time, any place, any day, I’m always down for a donut. But a dozen…? Yep, (insert heart eyes emoji here) I’m definitely there. And that’s exactly what today’s post is all about. A dozen glorious glazed donuts! But not just your regular old glazed donuts. Oh, no. I’m transforming them into something even better, if that’s even a possibility. I’m sharing the recipe for glazed donut bread pudding with vanilla glaze. Oh. Yeah. Baby.
Using only two ingredients, ice cream and espresso, create the perfect after dinner treat. Check out this easy and delicious Affogato recipe!
Winter usually includes a lot of hot cocoa, baked pies, warm crumbles, and gooey molten cakes. What it usually doesn’t include is ice cream. I’m not sure about you guys, but I don’t tend to discriminate when it comes to ice cream. Any time of day, any season, and usually even in any dessert too. With today’s post, I figured that I’d marry the two together to make the idea of ice cream in January a little more tolerable for those of you that like to stick to cold weather dessert essentials. You know…ease you into the idea of cold weather ice cream. 😉 The perfect winter treat…? Affogato. And it just so happens that today, I’m sharing an easy Affogato recipe! (Seriously….I’m talking two ingredients. So, yes, super easy).
This recipe for mini key lime pie cheesecakes is the perfect dessert for the non-chocolate lover in your life for Valentine’s Day this year. And they are heart shaped too!
If you guys haven’t figured out that I have an obsession with all things mini by now, I’m lucky. Things in mini form are just so much cuter and more delish for some reason too. Don’t ask me why, but it’s true. If you throw in a heart shape on top of that, it’s all over.
Valentine’s Day usually involves a whole lot of chocolate covered everything, but there’s no reason why you can’t pave your own road and go with something unique for a V-Day dessert. And, of course, I come prepared to help you guys out.
Today’s post is all about citrus! Who needs chocolate anyways? (Just kidding chocolate, I love you.) I’m making mini key lime pie cheesecakes. But not just any old mini key lime pie cheesecakes….mini heart shaped key lime pie cheesecakes!
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?)
And you know your donut obsession is bad when your friends send you text messages of new donut themed items they find while shopping so that you don’t miss out.
Either way, I knew that for this month’s sweet stop, a donut was in order. It’s been long enough for other sweets to take the spotlight, but I’m bringing the donut back today.
If you’re familiar with donuts in Utah, we definitely have some stand out winners. And Beyond Glaze is definitely one of them!
