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…

Devil’s Food Cake with Pumpkin Butterscotch Frosting

Devil’s Food Cake with Pumpkin Butterscotch Frosting | From SugarHero.com

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…

Pumpkin Bread Truffles

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…

Pumpkin Layer Cake and #SavorTheSavings with KitchenAid

Thanks to KitchenAid, Sears, and Mami Innovative Media for sponsoring this post. I finally cracked and opened my first pumpkin can of the season. I tried to stay strong, you guys. But it’s the third week of October and it’s still in the mid-80’s here and our AC isn’t working and I am sweating like…

Pumpkin Praline Bread Pudding

I know pumpkin pie is all the rage this time of year, but I just can’t hang with it. It’s too…moist. It gives me the heebie-jeebies. It’s coat-your-throat, mush-around-your mouth, make-it-hard-to-swallow goop. The flavor is a yes, but the texture is a big fat no. This opinion makes me a bit of an outlier at…

Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

I know what you’re thinking, and I will save you the trouble and ask the question myself: who in their right mind posts a pumpkin recipe in May? MAY! Let me answer that by pointing to the giant knot on my head where a giant Tupperware of frozen pumpkin puree came flying out of my…

Pumpkin Hot Chocolate

I didn’t mean to post another pumpkin recipe so soon. “Play it cool, Liz,” I thought. “Space them out so people don’t think you’re a pumpkin freak. How about a nice vanilla cake recipe?” But then the sky split open. After a cloudy Sunday morning and a mostly-clear afternoon, a monstrous rainstorm just swooped in,…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Halloween is over and I barely remember it. I didn’t get to go trick or treating, I didn’t get to dress in that “sexy manatee” costume I had planned, and I didn’t eat nearly as many pumpkin-flavored goods as I wanted to. October was a bust and I want a do-over. Fortunately we still have…
