Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles

My mom asked to me to make some holiday desserts for my dad to take into his office while I was visiting. Happy to oblige when it comes to making dessert, I wanted fairly easy desserts since I’m not as comfortable baking outside of my comfort zone in a new kitchen and without my standard…

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Bark

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Bark

I’ve made some pretty spectacular tasting birthday cakes, most recently the Andes mint chocolate chip cake for D’s birthday last month, and the Momofuku birthday cake will always be a contender for favorite cake. Normally I welcome any opportunity that gives me an excuse to bake a cake, even if it means making my own…

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles

After all of the cookie madness of the past few days here is some cookie dough love. The only thing possibly better than a cookie is cookie dough. Peanut butter cookies aren’t my favorite, but I’ve already made regular chocolate chip cookie dough truffles, so I thought these would be a fun change, especially with a little…

Mini Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups

Mini Inside Out Peanut Butter Cups

After making a more traditional Reese’s dessert a few months back, I decided to make inside outside peanut butter cups where the peanut butter is on the outside and the chocolate is on the outside for a fun and different twist. All these homemade candies require are two ingredients, a mini muffin pan and liners, and…

Circus Animal Truffles

Circus Animal Truffles

We do the majority of our grocery shopping at Whole Foods because their produce and and meat are superior, but occasionally on our walks with Bonnie to the park, we’ll stop by Safeway for non-perishables and to grab an extra ingredient or two we might have added to our grocery list or forgotten. It’s also…

Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs

Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs

Making homemade versions of different candy bars is near the top of my list of desserts to make given the success of the 3 Musketeers we made last summer. However, it always seems that something else jumps to the very top before any candy bars are created. With Easter coming up, Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

The second half of October officially means candy season is upon us. Homemade candy in this house. I had every intention of recreating one of my favorite candy bars— Reese’s peanut butter cups, but I realized I didn’t have enough chocolate to create the outer coating. I have a list of traditional candy bars I want…

3 Musketeers

3 Musketeers

Today we’re taking a little break from our party food to talk candy bars… 3 Musketeers are definitely not the most exciting candy bar. Most people I know gravitate towards Snickers or more complicated candy bars, but for some reason, without fail, I always picked this simple chocolate nougat bar first when digging through my…

Matzo Brittle

Matzo Brittle

Last year Dustin’s mom made a delicious matzo brittle for Passover. We couldn’t stop eating it and decided it should be a yearly tradition to make this quick and easy treat. Tonight we are hosting a Passover Seder with some friends out here, and we will most definitely be serving this matzo brittle for dessert.…
