It’s officially December! Which means we’re going full speed into edible stocking stuffers and treats. Toffee is always impressive and a crowd pleaser, especially this recipe. You really can’t tell the difference between the expensive chocolate store bought stuff and this. Plus, you get to dress it up with fun toppings like pretzels! Because this is candy, it’s easy to make weeks […]

Cranberry Orange Bon Bons

Thanksgiving hasn’t always been my favorite holiday. Like any other kid, it used to be Christmas. Once I started getting excited about food and the different ways to cook and flavor dishes, Thanksgiving quickly rose to the number one spot on my favorite holiday list.  Sadly, I think the last time I had more than 1 day off right before Thanksgiving […]

Leftover Candy Mousse

This is the first time this has happened to me. I know it happens to other people all the time but me?? I thought it would never happen to me. But it did.

I made these for a Super Bowl party, and the comments I got were: “I don’t even eat sweets and this is my third […]

DEFINITELY.  I made these for Christmas to hand out to all my friends and family. These would also be perfect for Valentines Day coming up. Making your own is way more personal, […]

Apple Cider Caramels

Mmm… the best part about fall is all the fall dessert flavors. Apple, caramel, pumpkin, maple, ginger etc. Who doesn’t love desserts with any of those flavors?! Today we will be making apple cider caramel candies. I absolutely love the flavors in this one because it’s a little tangy, salty, AND sweet- please try not to drool. You definitely need […]
