Candy Gift Set Giveaway!

Awww yeah! It’s February 1st, so you know what that means: it’s time for Valentine’s everything. I have some fun desserts I’m excited to share soon, but before we get to that, let’s talk about candy. Specifically, let’s talk about how I can hook you up with some tools for making your loved ones some…

Caramel Shortbread Squares

I’m not much for storebought candy bars, but when I do have my choice of the prepackaged stuff, I usually go for a Twix. I like the shortbread/caramel/chocolate combination (and let’s petition for a dark chocolate-only policy, thankyouverymuch) and I like how light and crispy the bar is, as opposed to some of its heftier…

Edible Gifts: Hot Chocolate Truffles and Peppermint Swirl Marshmallows

  I got it into my head to make homemade gifts for Christmas this year. I know. I KNOW. Busy people with babies zooming around their feet like caffeinated chihuahuas should give up any pretense of Martha Stewart-ism and just buy their loved ones pretty candles or something. But I couldn’t help myself. I call…

Raspberry-Pistachio Turkish Delight

Can you guess what our family’s costume theme was for Halloween this year? Yes, we were The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. And you’d better believe that the wardrobe was fully functional and opened to reveal a beautiful view of Narnia. “Hi, my name is Elizabeth and I am ridiculous. And also obsessive. And…

Chocolate Cockroaches

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably said to yourself, “Self, Halloween candy is all well and good, but I wish it was grosser. I’m sick of all this candy that looks delicious. Give me something that looks nasty!” Your wish is my command. These charmingly disgusting chocolate cockroaches couldn’t be simpler: pecans (or dates)…

Mixed-Up S’mores

Not to be an obnoxious girl stereotype or anything, but I was never a big math fan in school. I majored in English and American Studies, aka Touchy-Feely Theories and the Book Nerds Who Love Them. It was useless, but glorious. Fast-forward a few years, and I now spend my days making desserts, my nights…

Truffle-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the perks-slash-problems of having a job that involves making candy at home is that, at the end of the day, I end up with a lot of candy at home. (Duh.) It’s awesome because I love eating sweets, but it’s also dangerous, because: see above. Some weeks I do a good job of…

Peanut-Chocolate Toffee Sundaes + A Giveaway!

So as you might have heard, I have a book coming out in—deep breaths—one week. I’m not quite sure how that happened! It seems like only yesterday I was squeezing into an apron and haulin’ my 30-week pregnant self and a whole trunkful of handmade candy to our photoshoots…and now those very same photos grace…
