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!

Samoas Brownies

These brownies kind of had quite an effect on me. Apparently the chocolate-caramel-coconut combination is my own personal form of ambrosia. I had to send extra brownies in the kids lunches to keep myself from eating the whole pan.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Cookies

I new the dark cocoa powder would be transforming itself into cookies. Chewy cookies. Heavenly chewy dark chocolate cookies with coconut. Just the thought of it brings a smile to the face.

Whole-Grain Coconut Waffles

I was a little worried that the gaggle of teens at my house would turn their noses up at these “healthy” waffles. I warned them that they were whole-grain. They literally answered by saying, “We don’t care. We want the waffles.”

Toasted Coconut Popcorn

Maybe you’ve heard me tell you before how often we eat popcorn, and how much we love coconut. It’s only natural that I should put coconut and popcorn together. Honestly, I’m surprised I haven’t done it before now.

Kitchen Sink Cookies

I used butterscotch chips, nuts, coconut, m&m’s, and of course oats. However, I think they would be fantastic with some raisins or dates, maybe a little orange zest and cinnamon, or peanut butter candies. Honestly, you can just use whatever you like, or whatever you have in your pantry.

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!

50 Fruit Cookies

I put together a collection of some of my favorite fruity cookies from around the web. All these cookies have one big requirement to make it on this list: They have to contain actual fruit in some form.

Samoas Rice Krispie Treats

I don’t want to brag, but this might be one of the most brilliant concoctions I have ever dreamed up. I wish I had thought about this when we had the big krispie-treat-contest at the family reunion 2 years ago. I totally would have blown them away.

Coconut Fudge Cookie Bars

When you’re just the tiniest bit uncomfortable with the latest situation life threw at you, it helps to have something constant to comfort you. Something you recognize. Something that’s exactly what you expect.

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.

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!

Baked Coconut Almond Oatmeal Cups

Can I make a confession? I don’t like oatmeal. Never have. There is not enough sugar in the world to make otherwise delicious oats actually taste good when they are cooked.

Coconut Biscotti

Since my kids are all late sleepers, all I have to do is get up the tiniest bit early to have a good hour of reading Emerson and sipping breakfast drinks. And eating biscotti.
