These party-ready cherries are filled with champagne-spiked white chocolate ganache and presented on a tray as single bite sweets. Serve them alongside flutes of champagne.

Champagne Ganache Stuffed Cherries

The most delicious treats are often the simplest, and there's nothing simpler or tastier than the pairing of fresh fruit and chocolate.

I wanted to whip up something elegant and satisfying in a single bite - especially for those looking to curb indulgences after all of the Christmas feasting. This recipe came to me when I found a bag of beautiful jumbo red cherries at the market.
This sweet, boozy Champagne jelly holds a fun surprise - fruity bursting boba! It's a toast-worthy treat for New Year's Eve and beyond!

Champagne Jelly Shots with Pomegranate Bursting Boba

Cheers from me to you, especially if you've been keeping up with my daily advent for the past 24 days this December! It has truly been a sweet month in more ways than one.

I had so much fun developing this final recipe for Christmas, but it is absolutely perfect for New Year's Eve, too. Champagne Jelly with Bursting Boba is both tasty and entertaining!
Vanilla Salt is the perfect gift for the gourmet in your life. A sprinkle will elevate all kinds of sweets!
DIY Vanilla Salt

Sea salt alone is a wonderful addition to all kinds of baked goods and confectionery, but vanilla salt adds a distinctive creamy note and luscious aroma. It's sold in all kinds of kitchen specialty shops and online, but it's so easy to DIY at home!
These red and green-sprinkled cookies look like they came straight from Candy Land, and will add a splash of holiday color to your table!

If you're looking for a cookie with plenty of eye appeal, then these will be the star of your giveaway cookie trays. Holiday sprinkles practically glow on these dark chocolate morsels!
Need a homemade gift in a hurry? These recipes are easy to make and taste terrific!

20 Quick and Easy Holiday Candy Recipes To Make And Give

I'm doing something a little different today. I decided to search the Sprinkle Bakes archives and pull together some of my favorite low-lift recipes. The closer we get to Christmas, the more I rely on these recipes that require few ingredients and take very little time to put together.  Most are no-cook, no-bake treats that depend on nothing more than a microwave and a chill in the fridge.

Let's jump right in!

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Marshmallow Candy is a treat I make year-round, but it's especially good for Christmas candy trays. It's a smooth and creamy treat with marshmallows that give it a bouncy quality. Totally addictive!
Croq-Télé (loosely translated, TV crunch) are French snacking cookies that are unbelievably buttery and salty-sweet. Once you start eating them, it's hard to stop!

Croq Tele, French Snacking Cookies

Time flies when you're having fun, which means December has been extra fun! We're just a few days away from Christmas and I'm getting in as much cookie-making as possible. Although these cookies don't look fancy, they are truly special. If I were writing Sea Salt Sweet all over again, I'd have to include my own rendition of these in the book. They are buttery and salty-sweet, which makes them so snackable!
Peppermint Snowballs are deliciously easy drop cookies that you mix, scoop and bake. Be sure to stock up on butter, because an entire pound is creamed into the dough. The result is a tender, flavorful holiday cookie that is buttery beyond words!

Peppermint Snowball Cookies

You'll often find me singing the praises of  drop cookies because they're often the most delicious kind of cookies. And because they are so simple to make, they're perfect for the busiest folk, even 5 days out from Christmas!
Homemade fruitcake is infinitely better than anything you can buy at the grocery store, and this one is truly easy to make. If you're looking to share, this recipe can also be baked as two loaves.

Easy Holiday Fruitcake

Fruitcake is often met with reluctance and perhaps a judgmental eye roll, but I LOVE IT. Like most baked things, homemade is best, and this recipe is one of the easiest I've found. It's yet another retro gem from my thrifted recipe treasure box and although it's decades old, it still holds up in the modern kitchen!
Amaretto cupcakes are frosted with a tall mound of coconut whipped cream and covered with a flurry of shaved coconut. Each cupcake has a hidden cherry inside!

Coconut Cherry Amaretto Cupcakes

We may not have a white Christmas this year, but there still could be a wintry scene at your table! These snowy-looking cupcakes are pretty and simple. They're even lovelier dressed in foil cupcake liners and decorated with retro silver pine picks.
Hot Cocoa Cookies are reminiscent of a cup of hot cocoa loaded with mini marshmallows. One batch makes four dozen, so they're great for cookie swaps and care packages!

Hot Cocoa Cookies

If you love hot cocoa as much as I do (and that's a lot!) then you will LOVE these cookies. They are chocolatey with a slightly chewy bite, and have just the right amount of tiny marshmallows to make them adorably tasty.
Cranberry, apple cider and ginger are all beloved flavors of the season, and they are celebrated in this cheesecake! Use your favorite brand of gingersnaps in this recipe.

Gingersnap Cider Cheesecake

December is flying by, and I'm in total denial that Christmas is just 8 days away! I'm trying to soak up all the deliciousness that the season has to offer, and this cheesecake is a good way to do that!
A scarlett-hued edible centerpiece will help set the scene at your next holiday party! Delicious ruby chocolate truffles create a towering confection that will dazzle (and satisfy) your guests.

Ruby Chocolate Truffle Tower

It's easy to make an edible centerpiece using chocolate truffles, a craft cone, and toothpicks! The most work involved is making the homemade ganache truffles. You'll need a bunch, but they come together quickly with just three ingredients.

I used ruby chocolate to make this centerpiece, but you could use dark, semisweet, bittersweet - whatever flavor you fancy!
Sweet, golden saffron bread is filled with cinnamon-sugar and studded with tart red currants. Serve slices with hot tea or coffee to warm a cold winter's night.

Swirled Swedish Saffron Bread for St. Lucia Day

Today is St. Lucia's day! It's the day that our Swedish friends celebrate Saint Lucy, a symbol of hope and light in dark times. The festival begins the Christmas season in Swedish custom, and she comes as a young girl crowned with fresh greens and lit candles carrying a tray of baked goods.

Saffron buns are the traditional pastry served on this day (and you can find my recipe for them here) but this year I wanted to make something a little different. This time the saffron dough was given a sweeter treatment of cinnamon-sugar and and red currants.
Pecans, caramel and chocolate all come together to make this craveable, chewy candy. The recipe can easily be doubled to give to friends and family during the holidays.

Millionaire Candy with Sea Salt

This candy is so tasty to have so few ingredients. It's like the best version of chocolate turtle candies, especially if you sprinkle them with coarse sel gris. This minerally salt really makes the flavors zing!
This fudge recipe only uses three ingredients, so it's great when you need a sweet treat fast! Cream cheese gives this candy tangy flavor and luscious texture.

3 Ingredient Cream Cheese Fudge

This might just be my favorite advent recipe so far. It's so quick to make and the end result tastes like you've toiled over a hot pot of boiling candy. I will be making many batches in the next couple of weeks, because I want to share this revelation with everyone!
Soft-baked dark chocolate cookies are studded with a dynamic duo of dark chocolate and mint chips.  Enjoy this seasonal favorite year-round!

Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies

We all know that mint and chocolate together are a match made in heaven, but mint and dark chocolate together? Well. That's even better! These taste much like Andes Mints, but ever so slightly darker.
Candy Apple Snowmen will seriously up the cute factor at your next holiday party! Package them in clear cellophane bags for take-home favors.

Candy Apple Snowmen

A big hello from Frosty The Snowman's  well-dressed cousins! I can't help but giggle at these guys and their blingy dragee-sprinkled hats. I think it's obvious that I had a lot of fun making them. There's no baking involved, just some microwaving and assembling. So they're not awfully hard to manage!
These deliciously nutty tartlets are quick, one-bite wonders with assertive blue cheese flavor! They take minutes to make and can be served warm or chilled.

Gorgonzola Walnut Tartlets

Say hello to my new favorite hors d'oeuvre recipe! These little bites are simple to make because they use ready-made phyllo tart shells. The combination of crunchy phyllo, creamy Gorgonzola cheese, chives and walnuts can only be described as bold. And that's exactly what an hors d'oeuvre should be - big flavors in a little package!
Sweeten the holidays with rich chocolate-hazelnut sandwich cookies. One batch makes plenty to share!

Hazelnut Truffle Sandwich Cookies

I'm having a chocolate-hazelnut moment, as evidenced by this cheesecake and these ah-maaazing sandwich cookies. There's something about the flavors that seem so cozy and substantial, and winter is definitely the time to eat something cozy and substantial!
Make the season's hottest condiment using just two ingredients! A batch of hot honey decanted into mini bear bottles will make the cutest stocking stuffers around.

Hot Honey Recipe

One of my favorite ways to spice up snacks is with a drizzle of hot honey. Have you tried it? It seems like everywhere I look there's a new way it's being used. It's added to cocktails, poured over ice cream, drizzled on pizza and my recent favorite - stirred into a steaming mug of chai. YUM! The possibilities are endless! It's a great way to add a little sweet heat to your favorite foods.

Luckily this spicy sauce is easy to make with your choice of hot peppers and responsibly sourced 100% pure honey.
Marzipan Mousse is rich and creamy with intense almond flavor. A topping of chopped Sconza Chocolate Candy Cane Almonds is the perfect complement and so season appropriate!

Marzipan Mousse with Sconza Candy Cane Almonds

You may remember earlier this year when I partnered with Sconza Chocolates to promote their delicious Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds. I was truly blown away by the quality and flavor of their products. They are all top notch and I am now and forever a fan!

I'm so happy to be partnering with them again for a special holiday offer. Confection Perfection is their holiday gift box all wrapped up in a big red bow! It allows you to mix-and-match  five different Sconza candies to tailor the perfect gift.
Whole wheat roll out cookies are easy to make and have a deliciously nutty flavor. Use the royal icing recipe provided to decorate a batch of cute Santa faces.

Whole Wheat Santa Sugar Cookies Recipe

Ho-ho-ho! Is there anything more Christmassy than a Santa Claus-shaped sugar cookie? I don't think so! These cookies have a simple design which makes them easy to assemble and fun to decorate.
Bring the fun this holiday season with Chocolate Pocky Pops - a lolliop with an edible stick!

Chocolate Pocky Pops

Pocky is one of my favorite ready-to-eat treats, and I'm always looking for ways to incorporate it into my confectionery - cue these pops! I dreamed them up after finding myself with a surplus of cookie crumbs after a freelance project. I was able to use up some of my stock and get some cute chocolate goodies to share with my friends!
This no-cook divinity recipe takes the guess work (and candy thermometer!) out of making the classic Christmas candy.

No Cook Divinity

This year's advent of treats has an unintentional theme: Retro Sweets! It's a result of my recent thrift store find of someone's recipe box from 1950. I can't believe such a thing was given away and not passed down to family, but their trash is certainly my treasure.

Inside that box I found this recipe. It's a hack for classic divinity and much less finicky than the original recipe. Classic (cooked) divinity will be adversely affected by humidity and weather conditions, but this candy held up just fine even though I made it on a rainy day.
Creamy, thick chocolate cheesecake is made even more decadent with chocolate-hazelnut spread. It's topped with a mound of freshly whipped cream and a flurry chocolate shavings.

Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

December marks my month-long celebration of making and baking sweet things. Each day leading up to Christmas I'll be sharing something new and festive!

First up is this heavenly chocolate-hazelnut cheesecake. It's a real crowd-pleaser, and busy holiday hosts can make it ahead because it freezes beautifully.
Holiday entertaining can be simple with this make-ahead menu of appetizers that are both casual and elegant. Tasty nibbles such as Chesapeake Crab Dip and Black Forest Pâté will satisfy hungry guests, while Hot Coffee Punch and Cranberry Champagne Punch will make spirits bright!

Holiday Open House Menu with Recipes

Hosting an open house is one of the easiest ways to entertain a crowd during the holidays. All it takes is a little planning and simple recipes that can be prepared in advance. Here you'll find some of my favorite festive bites along with tips for making the party run smoothly!
This walnut pie has a luxurious caramel filling that is made with maple syrup and real salted butter. Butter gives the caramel exceptional flavor and creaminess, and an all-butter pie dough provides the most delicious flaky crust.

Maple Caramel Walnut Pie

If we didn't have pie each Thanksgiving, well, it wouldn't feel like the holiday! There's usually at least three on the sideboard, and they are all our expected favorites. Pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and buttermilk pie will all make an appearance.

Although I love all of our traditional pies, it's nice to switch things up a little. This walnut pie is reminiscent of pecan pie without being as sticky or as sweet. Brown sugar, salted butter, and maple syrup give it rich caramel flavor. It's a lovely ending to any meal and so season appropriate!
The One With Rachel's English Trifle.
Rachel Green's Thanksgiving Trifle

Hello,  F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (wink!) This year marked the 25th anniversary of the popular sitcom, which probably is news to absolutely no one. It's been widely celebrated since September 22nd, which was the official anniversary. There's been lots of fanfare,and there's even a Friends + Pottery Barn collaboration with cute merchandise that includes the infamous apothecary table that Phoebe loved. (And hated, and loved).

I was so excited to be asked by Food Network to re-create Rachel's English trifle because it's from one my favorite episodes. If you've never seen the episode, then (spoiler alert!) Rachel makes a beautiful trifle with some very interesting layers. Let's recap those layers, shall we?

First there's a layer of ladyfingers, then jam, custard, raspberries, more ladyfingers, beef sauteed with peas and onions, more custard, bananas and whipped cream.

One of these things is not like the others.
Looking for a fun way to serve dessert at your next holiday gathering? Look no further! A Mini Bundt Cake Bar is easy to assemble and even more fun to decorate. Use the recipes in this post to make a variety of sturdy bundt cakes to fill your bar.

Mini Bundt Cake Bar for Friendsgiving

Donut walls have been all the rage in recent years for parties, showers, and almost any festive occasion. I've been eager to try making one myself because they are so darn adorable, aaaand I had some questions. For example - how practical is this for serving a crowd? How hard is it to build one? How do the donuts stay fresh?

This year I had the opportunity to make a donut pegboard for HGTV's wedding DIY's (as seen in this gallery, picture 41/60). It was so much fun and easier than I expected. Recently, after baking up some mini bundt cakes in a fancy pan, it struck me how beautiful they'd be displayed on a wall. I decided then to make a hanging mini bundt cake bar for our workshop Friendsgiving.

If you'd like to make your own hanging pegboard bundt bar, then hop over to ConfettiFix.com for our build tutorial. For recipes - keep reading!
If you're looking for a frightfully good chocolate cake for your Halloween party, then look no further! Layers of chocolate cake are filled and frosted with Death Wish Coffee ganache, which will keep specters dancing until dawn. Botanical icing sheets and a gold-covered chocolate skull make this cake hauntingly beautiful.

Vanitas Chocolate Cake with Death Wish Coffee Ganache

Halloween is next week (!!!) and I've been eager to make something special for the occasion. I'm not sure why, but this year I've been really keen on pairing skeletons and botanicals for spooky seasonal decor (see my DIY Skeleton Botanical Art here!). I suppose it stems from my love for vanitas, which is a type of symbolic still life art. It incorporates reminders of the brevity of life, and ephemeral items like the ones shown in the above photo: bones, fruit, flowers, smoke.

Earlier this year I'd tucked away a cache of printed icing sheets for just the right inspired moment, and after digging them out, a dramatic floral caught my eye. It was perfect for this vanitas-inspired confection.
The combination of roasted sweet potatoes and sage gives these scones a sweet and savory flavor profile that makes them a delicious treat for breakfast or dessert.

When fall arrives, it seems that pumpkin reigns as king of pastries, pies and cakes. I love pumpkin too, but my favorite orange-hued veggie to bake with happens to be sweet potato. Compared to pumpkin purée, starchy sweet potato is naturally sweeter and denser which makes it a wonderful addition to quick breads - like these scones!
Cream puff cake has a golden crust that puffs high in the pan as it bakes, which forms the perfect container for creamy custard filling. A drizzle of scratch-made chocolate ganache makes this cake pretty and gives it added richness. What makes it extra delicious? Real butter. Butter gives the ganache a beautiful shine and smooth consistency while keeping the choux batter rich and fluffy.

Cream Puff Cake

Pâte à choux is one my favorite classic pastry elements. It's the base for eclairs, profiteroles, savory cheese puffs, and other delicious bites that are carefully piped on baking sheets. I'd never considered the fast and easy option of spreading an entire batch of choux pastry in a dish and baking it as a crust, but it works marvelously! It makes the fluffiest, airiest crust for this cream-filled cake that slices neatly for serving.
Shark Week Diorama Cake

Hello, and Happy Shark Week! Discovery's week-long shark fest began on July 28th and runs through August 4th. I'm sure by now you've noticed some shark-themed treats swimming through your social media feeds, and I'm adding one more! I'm so excited to share this special cake I made for Food Network in honor of the event.
Ruby chocolate is a brand new innovation in the culinary world made from red cocoa beans, which yields a naturally pink chocolate with mild red berry flavors. In this recipe, dark chocolate cupcakes are covered with a high mound of billowy meringue frosting and then dipped in tangy ruby chocolate coating.

Ruby Chocolate Hi Hat Cupcakes

It's been nearly a year since I first sampled ruby chocolate, which was invented by Barry Callebaut in 2017. It's been my new obsession ever since, and the subject of quite a few experiments in my kitchen. You may remember this Ruby Chocolate Cheesecake from earlier this year.

In my work, I've found that Ruby Chocolate's flavors shine best when closest to its pure form, such as bar or callet. For this reason it makes a fine chocolate coating for all kinds of candies and confections - and certainly for these cupcakes!
These hot dog look-alikes are sure to bring the smiles at your next summer gathering. Homemade golden sponge cakes are filled with chocolate franks and garnished with yellow buttercream 'mustard'.

Hot Dog Snack Cakes

Summer is in full swing and we're adjusting to new routines. Days are long so we're staying up later to enjoy evenings on the patio. The lightening bugs in our backyard glow with near synchronicity which is a simple but awe-inspiring kind of magic. And then there's our renewed zest for spontaneous cookouts, which happens weekly.

The latter was my inspiration for creating these hot dogs in true trompe l'oeil fashion. I think they're a real hoot! They're tasty too, because they are essentially extra-large Twinkie-style snack cakes. They're not hard to make but require a few steps which are all outlined in the tutorial that follows.

Also, I have a fun giveaway today, so read on for the details!
This classic recipe for zucchini muffins is the perfect way to take advantage of summer's bounty of squash. The cinnamon-streusel topping gives each muffin an extra bite of sweetness and a delicate crunch.
Zucchini Olive Oil Muffins with Cinnamon Crunch Streusel

Happy First Day of Summer!

If ever there was a time to post a zucchini recipe, it is now. I've always known that this vegetable is plentiful in warm months, but I'm finding out just how plentiful first hand. This spring I planted a little 9-foot garden just outside the workshop doors. Almost every day there's a new squash to discover and pluck from the vine - it's as if they magically appear overnight!
This classic Victorian-era dessert of fresh peaches, vanilla ice cream, and raspberry sauce is easy to prepare and makes an elegant last course.

Peach Melba

I think it's fair to say that most desserts prepared in the French style could be described as elaborate, however, this French dessert is delightfully simple. It was created by famed chef Auguste Escoffier around 1892 to honor Australian opera singer Nellie Melba.

Because this recipe relies on few ingredients, use the best of each available. In Escoffier's words, “Pêche Melba is a simple dish made up of tender and very ripe peaches, vanilla ice cream, and a purée of sugared raspberry. Any variation on this recipe ruins the delicate balance of its taste.”
Three simple ingredients make up this puppy-safe birthday cake and humans can enjoy it, too! It's made entirely of fresh fruit so it only takes about 5 minutes to assemble.

A Fresh Fruit Cake for Puppies

This past weekend we celebrated our Churro pug by throwing him a proper birthday party. We rescued him many years ago on Memorial Day, and by our count he's around 15 years old. He spent the day being doted upon and eating his favorite foods, which all happen to be fruit!
Star-shaped petit fours in patriotic colors will make your Memorial Day or July Fourth holiday extra-special! This shortcut recipe is quick and easy using ready-made pound cake from your local bakery or grocery store.

Easy Patriotic Petit Fours

Today we're prepping for our long Memorial Day weekend, which involves lots of grilling, cool treats, and even a puppy birthday party for our Churro pug (more on that later). We'll also be visiting family lakeside, so I wanted to make something cute to bring for dessert.

These little petit fours couldn't be easier to make. You'll need a 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, a ready-made pound cake (1 lb.), three tubs of ready-made vanilla frosting and a little food color.
A favorite ice cream parlour treat gets a fun layer cake makeover! Banana Split Ice Cream Cake is made with fluffy yellow cake layers, hot fudge sauce, and banana split ice cream. It's a chilly treat for hot summer days.

Banana Split Ice Cream Cake

The first day of summer is yet a month away, but here in the southern US temperatures are already soaring. The only way to enjoy being outside is to have a frosty treat ready to hand, so I've been eagerly exploring ice box recipes. It didn't take long to realize that banana split ingredients such as hot fudge, walnuts, and Neapolitan ice cream would make a fantastic layer cake. I think it's just about perfect for picnics, potlucks, and even summertime birthdays - just add candles!
This breakfast pizza begins with a buttery, scratch-made biscuit crust that is loaded with cheese, scrambled eggs, and bacon. The toppings can easily be varied!

Breakfast Pizza with Biscuit Crust

I'm a brunch girl through and through, so I'm always looking for new ways to serve my favorite power couple: eggs and cheese. This breakfast pizza is just the ticket, and the recipe is as straight-forward as you can get. It doesn't take a lot of time to put together, and it's a real crowd-pleaser!
Soft and chewy Birthday Cake Sugar Cookies will bring lots of fun and sweetness to any celebration. They're simple to make with all the flavor of classic yellow birthday cake!

Birthday Cake Sugar Cookies with Sprinkles

Hello! It's been a while since I've posted here and that's because I've been on a special project with my friends at Food Network.  More on that soon, but right now I'd like to share an easy and fun little cookie recipe that I can't stop eating!  These Birthday Cake Sugar Cookies are rich and buttery with an extra dose of vanilla and plenty of happy confetti sprinkles.
Homemade carrot cake and rich cheesecake batters are swirled together to create the ultimate springtime dessert. A topping of sweetened sour cream offers a delightful tang, and the carrot ribbon garnish makes an elegant presentation.

Carrot Cake Swirl Cheesecake

I hope you don't mind me squeezing in just one more Easter dessert before the holiday. I have this cheesecake in my refrigerator right now, getting properly chilled for our dessert buffet on Sunday. Whenever I'm hosting a big holiday dinner, I appreciate dishes that can be made ahead of time. This is one of them, and it just happens to be delicious and so season appropriate!

These delightful Floral Bunny and Egg Sugar Cookies are pretty enough to decorate your Easter table, and tasty, too! Use them as place setting decor or package them for take-home favors.

Floral Bunny and Egg Sugar Cookies

It's hard to believe that Easter is this Sunday! I've been busy planning our dinner menu and collecting little spring accents to decorate my table. I like to make decorated sugar cookies for occasions like this, because they can serve double duty as table decor and a tasty treat for guests.
Lemon Syrup Cake and a Colorful Tablescape with The Home Depot

Hello friends!  Today I’d like to share a couple of things with you that I’m really excited about. The first and perhaps most obvious is this Lemon Syrup Layer Cake. It’s tart with layers of white cake soaked in lemon syrup. It’s a bounty of citrusy goodness and with tangy sweetness and no sourness to speak of. I have a feeling it’s going to be the centerpiece of our dessert buffet at Easter dinner.     

Speaking of centerpieces! The cake stand you see here, along with the beautiful dinnerware, flatware, and serveware are all from The Home Depot. Did you know that the nation’s #1 and most trusted home improvement retailer is now expanding their online shopping to include furniture, home accents, kitchenwares and tabletop? Well, now you do! I’m so happy to be working with them to bring you this news, and to show you a few of the items that I tried out personally.
Celebrate the sunny flavors of spring with this limoncello infused sponge cake. It’s filled with sweetened cream cheese frosting and a generous helping of crushed Sconza Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds

Limoncello Almond Cake Roll

Like most bakers, lemon is a staple in my kitchen year-round. It goes in all kinds of cakes and confections, but there's something wonderful about making a lemon dessert in spring. It feels like a celebration of sunshine and lightness after long winter months. I was inspired to make this cake after tasting Sconza Lemoncello Chocolate Almonds. If you haven't tried them yet, then you're in for a real treat! I think they taste like a slice of creamy lemon tart in a single bite.
Celebrate the season in a big way with a Reese's-inspired Giant Chocolate-Peanut Butter Egg! It's fun to make and even more fun to share.

Giant Chocolate Peanut Butter Egg

Here's something extra special - and extra large - for your Easter basket this year. This super-sized peanut butter egg is big enough to share with a dozen friends (or Easter dinner guests!) and it was inspired by those famous yellow-packaged peanut butter eggs that appear everywhere this time of year.
This one-skillet recipe is a quick fix using rotisserie chicken, fresh veggies, canned beans and taco seasoning. The buttery cornbread crust makes it a delicious, filling meal the whole family will love.
Spicy Southwest Chicken Cornbread Skillet Bake

I've been baking up all kinds of sweet Easter treats, but before the sugar rush commences I'd like to share this recent favorite savory bake. It's so easy and a great weeknight one pan meal!
This is an easy recipe for fudgy brownies that have no flour added! It's a rich dessert that goes far, and it's well-balanced with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
Flourless Chocolate Brownies

If you're looking for a happy little weekend bake, then I'd like to recommend this recipe. It's simple and so satisfying. The formula is gluten-free with almond flour standing in for wheat flour. This yields a dual-textured brownie depending on your preference to serve it chilled (fudgy) or at room temperature (soft).
This luscious no-bake cheesecake is made using ruby chocolate, a new innovation in the culinary world! It is made from red cocoa beans which yields a naturally pink hued chocolate with mild red berry flavors.

Ruby Chocolate Cheesecake

I've been eager to work with ruby chocolate ever since it was introduced in 2017 by its inventors, the cocoa producers of Barry Callebaut. You may remember that I first mentioned this chocolate as a gift idea in this December post. It has been unavailable in the US for quite some time, and just last month it arrived for purchase in meltable callets thanks to Trader Joe's. Now that it's becoming more widely available, I wanted to share one of my favorite kitchen experiments with ruby chocolate - this cheesecake recipe!
