Almond Joy Fudge

I’m sure there are plenty of fun and fancy ways to add coconut and almonds to fudge. But seriously, I was having one of those what-can-I-throw-together-in-5-minutes kind of days. And it worked out perfectly!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Not that there’s anything wrong with a plain old, ordinary peanut butter cookies or anything, but sometimes it’s fun to just take them to the next level. Know what I mean?

Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites

Dipping things in chocolate is all the rage. It’s like the trend that never goes out of style, because it’s always awesome.

Coconut Truffles

When I spied these completely adorable Bunny Tails recently, I knew I had to give them a try myself. Partly because they’re adorable, but mostly because they are coconut. I can’t wait to make these for our Easter celebration!

Chocolate Dipped Cream Cheese Mints

I figured it would be a good time to revisit the cream cheese mints. There’s something about the mint flavor that is so refreshing, don’t you think? And, I made them green, because it’s March.

Homemade Caramels

I learned the tradition of caramel making from Robb’s family after we were married. He used to make them every Christmas, but in recent years I have become his loyal assistant.

Mint Sandwiches and Holiday Food Party

This week’s dessert is simple, easy, and requires no refrigeration. We’re also bringing you an awesome holiday food party with twelve fantastic bloggers!

Pretzel Toffee

Toffee is one of my favorite candies. Butter + Sugar… what’s not to love? I wanted to add a little salt to my sweet (salty + sweet is the best flavor combo) so I poured my toffee over pretzels. Pretzels go great with basically everything, if you ask me.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Bars

We all have our little struggles and our little preferences, I guess. I love a good chocolate chip cookie and Robb loves anything coconut. It’s the kind of love that makes the world go round. Put them together and you have heaven on earth.

20 Amazing No Bake Desserts

Who doesn’t love a no-bake dessert? Nobody, that’s who. I have these amazing ideas for complex desserts right now, but honestly, it’s just so nice outside, I would rather do anything than spend a long afternoon in the kitchen. That makes this the perfect time to pull together a collection of some of my favorite no-bake desserts.

Cream Cheese Mints

This batch of cream cheese mints caused me to exercise a vast amount of self control. I was self-controlling right and left so I could share these little goodies with my friends, who were obviously impressed.

Buckeyes

Make some buckeyes for the big game! The buckeye recipe calls for chocolate, peanut butter, and no baking.

Almond Balls

Maybe I should have titled them “Chocolate Almond Balls” or “Chocolate Cream Pie Balls” or something like that, because there’s not a lot of almond in those balls. They are mostly chocolate, rolled in… not almonds… cookie crumbs.

Black and White Fudge

I realize that there are people out there who believe that coconut is not the most amazing thing ever. To those people, I would just like to say…

Almond Toffee

Toffee is probably my favorite of all homemade candies. It’s easy, has a short list of ingredients, and is addictively tasty. My sister-in-law and I make it every year, and put a box of it in the freezer.
