Peppermint Cream Cheese Thumbprints

I’ve wanted to make these cute peppermint cookies for some time now. I bet these would be fantastic with a cup of dark chocolate cocoa. I love the peppermint hot chocolate at Starbucks, by the way, speaking of peppermint and chocolate and things I love.

Pumpkin Spice Nanaimo Bars

Let’s not forget that it is now November. I have no idea where this year went, and I can’t decide whether I’m happy or sad to have it behind me. But that is beside the point. The point is, it’s fall, and I needed some fall flavors in these bars.

Chocolate Banana Bread

I recently found myself saddled with ripe bananas, when the project I had intended to use them for fell through. The memory of this chocolate banana bread discussion came flooding back to me. And if I’m being completely honest, the thought of how this bread would look on this cutting board is the real reason I ended up making it.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Muddy Buddies

Sometimes, on Halloween, a mom needs 10 minutes to herself, so she doesn’t lose her cool. We all know what that looks like, and it ain’t pretty. It might be the scariest part of Halloween, actually.

German Chocolate Skillet Cake

My awesome brother gave me a brand new 12-inch skillet as a gift recently. I was so excited to get it seasoned and start using it. I couldn’t decide what to make in it first!

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.

Chocolate Pudding (egg-free) {Appreciation Post}

This simple chocolate pudding is a recipe I learned from Robb’s family. He loves foods that are basic, simple, uncomplicated. This pudding is one of his favorites, and we eat it pretty regularly. Chocolate pudding tastes just like love.

Chocolate Zucchini Cookies

This zucchini is humongous. It’s the size of a small child. It’s as big as my leg. It’s the biggest zucchini I’ve ever seen in my life. And it’s sitting on my kitchen counter.

Banana Bread Cookies

Two ripe bananas sat on the counter, like a challenge. “What will you make of us?” they screamed at me. And this is a cookie blog, and it’s been a while since we had a good creative cookie on here. Decision made.

Chocolate Lovers Bark

Honestly, this whole thing is super duper easy, but it takes a while to set. Try to be patient. Maybe start a conversation with a 5 year old while you wait.

Twix Cheesecake Bars

It seems like cheesecake bars are like the cool kid on the block these days. Everyone is making them. You name it, you can make it into a cheesecake bar.

Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bars

The girls and I had fun figuring out what kind of cookie we could make with the ingredients we had on hand. I found a half bag of chocolate chips and a half bag of cinnamon chips, and The Hippie Chick suggested oatmeal cookies, and voila! A heavenly concoction was born.

Dark Chocolate Whoopie Pies

I bet he won’t have any trouble finding these dark chocolate cookies. The kid loves chocolate. And cookies. This is why I deliberately made them on a day when I knew he would be gone all day. This way, I get to eat one or two before he discovers them.

One Bowl Brownies

I have no patience for complicated recipes and doing dishes and stuff like that. Give me something I can whip together in 5 minutes in one bowl and satisfy my cravings. Otherwise, I’m left to raiding the cupboards, searching for leftover Easter candy.

Chocolate Mint Cookie Bars

I decided to throw together some last minute cookie bars, and I seriously considered a repeat of the Coconut Chocolate Chip Bars. But my chocolate cravings got the best of me, and with the presence of cocoa powder, mint chocolate chips, AND mint patties in my pantry, the decision became a verrry easy one. A little too easy, maybe.
