Chocolate-Dipped Pumpkin Marshmallows

Chocolate-Dipped Pumpkin Marshmallows | From SugarHero.com

I recently did an event publicizing my candy cookbook, and in order to lure people to me and force them to like me, I passed out samples of candies from the book. (No shame in my game.) I had samples of peanut butter cup fudge, mint chocolate chip truffles, and passion fruit marshmallows. People enjoyed the…

Pumpkin Bread Truffles

Pumpkin Bread Truffles | From SugarHero.com

It’s October 1st! (Cue the clichéd “oh where does the time go” monologue.) I am officially putting away the pastel food coloring and ice cream maker, and busting open the industrial-sized can of pumpkin puree. Since pumpkins are the undeniable star of October food and decor, it seemed only appropriate to start my love letter to fall…

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

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%…
