Peanut Butter Shortbread Bites

And, we’re back to peanut butter.  And mini shortbread cookies.  And milk chocolate.  Oh my.  These are great for a bite sized chocolate snack, but be careful…they’re addictive! First, get some peanut butter and mini shortbread cookies.  The 100 calories snack size cookies are a perfect size for the mold that I bought from theRead More

S’mores Bars

I love s’mores, but sitting in front of a camp fire in the middle of the day while it’s 95 degrees outside isn’t all that appealing when I develop a craving for one.  So, here’s the compromise. Grab some honey graham crackers from the store, along with some marshmallow creme to be inside the chocolateRead More

Happy Cookies!

These cookies are a combination of milk chocolate, yellow (vanilla) chocolate, peanut butter and a Ritz cracker…no wonder they’re smiling!  Taking a bite of these cookies will actually make your taste buds smile even bigger. I bought the mold for these at AC Moore.  Technically, they’re for lollipops, but I wanted to use them asRead More

Mocha Cake Pops/Balls

Dark chocolate cake mix made with strong coffee, mixed with coffee icing and covered with dark chocolate.  These should help you perk up in the morning!  These were delicious, but I wondered if maybe there was a little too much icing.  I used 1 1/2 cups, and will probably try them with just 1 cupRead More

Lactation Cookies

After giving birth to my daughter, someone made these cookies for me.  I laughed at the thought of them actually helping my milk supply, but they really did…and I had absolutely NO problem eating at least 4 of them a day.  I was pretty disappointed when I ran out, and fussed at my husband ifRead More

Peanut Butter Ritz Cookies

The word “favorite” doesn’t even do justice for these cookies.  Whenever I make a batch of these, they disappear faster than anything else I’ve ever made.  Even when I talk about them in front of people who have had them, they start asking questions as to when I’m going to make them again…they really areRead More

Mocha Cake

This is a 3-layer 9 inch double chocolate cake with chocolate chips, coffee and mocha icing.  The cake mix is super moist and thick, one of those cakes that makes you say, “Mmmm,” when you bite into it.  This is the same recipe I used for the mocha cupcakes, only as a cake.   I usedRead More

Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

This cake is beyond delicious.  Both times I’ve made this for family gatherings, it disappeared so quickly that not everyone was able to try it…which means I’ll have to make it again.  Might be a conspiracy! This is made with french vanilla cake mix, lemon pudding mix, blueberries and cream cheese in the batter.  ItRead More
