Marbled Easter Egg Truffles

marbled-easter-egg-truffles-11

Happy Monday! …Just kidding, there’s no such thing as a happy Monday, but wishing everyone a “Middling Monday” just didn’t have the same ring to it. At my house we’re still recovering from a crazy weekend  that included my son’s birthday party (yay) and yet another ear infection (boo). I have some fun Easter desserts in…

Caramelized White Chocolate Truffles

caramelized-white-chocolate-truffles-4

This is a game changer. In the past, I’ve always tolerated white chocolate as “that other chocolate which is not nearly as good as the dark stuff, but which pairs nicely with raspberries and can be used to make mousses when you want other flavors to shine, and which is legitimately delicious in macadamia nut cookies.” Okay,…

Grapefruit Marshmallows

Grapefruit Marshmallows

I’m back! I know, you probably didn’t miss me (…or notice I was gone? Sniff) but I missed you! Our friendship is unequal like that, and I don’t mind. Last week I took a mini blogging break and visited a friend in San Francisco, read a book, ate all the things, and remembered why I…

Disco Truffles for New Year’s Eve

It’s almost New Year’s Eve, y’all! Time to do what Prince says and party like it’s 1999. So switch out those smart phones for brick-sized cell phones, blast the Ricky Martin tunes, and let’s all invest in some dot-coms or something. Yesss! It’s a little funny that I’m sharing a New Year’s Eve party recipe,…

Dirty Coke Fudge

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who know what a Dirty Coke is, and those who think this is the setup to a really tasteless joke. All of my friends are apparently in the first group people. Starting earlier this year, my Facebook and Instagram feeds started blowing up with references…

Chocolate-Covered Raspberries

Move over, chocolate-covered cherries. There’s a new chocolate-covered candy king: chocolate-covered raspberries. Think about it: why should cherries have all the fun? Because if we’re being honest, maraschino cherries are waaaay less fun than fresh raspberries. They’re painfully sweet, barely related to their fresh cherry cousins, and are comprised of approximately 68% red dye, 30%…

Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

I wasn’t planning on posting another recipe featuring mini peanut butter cups so soon after the glorious overindulgence known as Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies, but the timing just sort of worked out this way. Please don’t be annoyed—they’re for a good cause. And also: mini peanut butter cups. And furthermore: fuuuuudge. And in…

Cream Cheese Cake with Red Velvet Fudge Frosting

Fun fact: if you look up “showstoppers” on Google images, you get a lot of pictures of girls in lingerie, marquee lights, Barry Manilow references (??), and at least one My Little Pony picture. What’s missing from these results? No, not more My Little Pony Pictures. This gorgeous showstopper of a cake: Okay, so you…
