Is there such a thing as too many peppermint desserts this time of year? If you said yes, show yourself to the door. Peace out. For the rest of us, let’s get this red and white party started! Fresh on the heels of Monday’s Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies, I bring you the reddest, whitest,…

Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies

I’ve heard a rumor that it’s cookie season. I’ve also heard that it’s peppermint season, and gift-giving season, and “calories, shmalories” season. Huzzah! I made these Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies as part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It’s a fun blogging event organized by Lindsay and Julie, and the concept is simple:…

December is winning, you guys. Not in the “#winning!” sense, but in the “I feel like I’ve been beaten with the big heavy holiday stick, and I am not fighting back” sense. Real talk? I’m bushed. Whining about work has got to be tied with weather talk in the competition for Things No One Cares…

I will never get tired of a good chocolate chip cookie. In 50 years, when we’re all making like George Jetson and eating super-advanced space food on the moon and enjoying fancy ingredients that haven’t even been invented yet, I’ll still be clinging to my old standby, the humble chocolate chip cookie.

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…

Thank you to JOLLY TIME Pop Corn and Kitchen PLAY for sponsoring this post! I don’t know if this aspect of my personality comes through on the blog, but I am not a “less is more” sort of girl. (I imagine regular readers might have guessed this about me, however.) It’s not uncommon for me…

Devil’s Food Cake with Pumpkin Butterscotch Frosting

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but glittering black sugar sprinkles and sparkling orange hard candies are a girl’s best friend… That’s right, friends, it’s not all panna cotta skull graveyards and moldy tarts around here—we can do glamorous Halloween food, too! This elegant cake features contrasting black and orange layers of extra-chocolatey…
