I’m not gonna say these are healthy peanut butter cups, but I will double down on this: these peanut butter and jelly cups are 10x better than store-bought Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It’s a great recipe to work on with kids since there’s really no cooking involved and the chocolate sets up quickly!
is this shame that I feel right now? Is that what happens when I delve into the cutesy territory too often? Yeah. That’s it. But you know what? I’m an equal opportunity recipe developer. I know that these are just going to tickle some of you pink. And I love you for that ;)
Isn’t it marvelous that we, as a collective generation, were able to convince our parents that Kudos were some sort of granola bar (a healthy option, natch) when in actuality we were just unwrapping candy everyday after school? I, for one, am impressed at the wool pulled over so many eyes.
These bars have proven to be so popular that I’ve baked them up for all sorts of different crowds. My latest batch? Gluten free and dairy free, totally vegan, and unbearably tasty. Just like the first batch, these are studded with candied ginger, though this time I opted to use dark chocolate chips instead of white chocolate.
Ginger and butter are secret best friends. Like, we all know ginger hangs out with cardamom, and coconut, and yeah, garlic, but ginger’s got this secret side-bestie. Butter. Just straight up butter. These blondies are the public realization of their friendship and I couldn’t love them any more for it.
Santa’s snacks get all the attention this time of year. Cookies and milk, cookies and milk, it’s all we care about! But I think you should put out some naughty nibbles for the elves who worked to hard building toys all year long!
Somewhere there’s a forest made of cakes and candies, and from that fair copse we can harvest gorgeous yule logs year-round. But until we find that magical wonderland, we’ll have to make the damn cakes ourselves!
I am aggressively resisting the cultural expectation to use gendered language with these cookies. Will it cost me in SEO ranking? SURE. Do I care more about crushing the patriarchy than my page rank on Google? DUH.
I know you know this is totally not me, but accept it: I’ve made something cute. I don’t usually care for the adorable side of the baking equation, I’m far too practical to paint faces on my desserts. Until now. I was pondering the crisp autumnal air and started imagining a forest scene: hedgehogs, owls, and squirrels partying together amidst burnished leaves on the woodland floor. And once the image took hold in my head, I thought it might be fun to make a cookie inspired by that fever dream.
If you're a fan of Hallmark Channel's Home & Family show you'll recognize this recipe from one of Ali Fedotowsky-Manno's segments. I love writing recipes for television, but sometimes we don't get to show all of the steps involved!
Forget the name for a second and just accept this drink at face value: a frothy head, creamy body, and tangy finish. Could you want anything more?
