St. Patrick’s Day Treats

A bar made out of lucky charms and bailey's marshmallows on a round white plate

When I lived in Louisville, the St. Patrick’s Day parade was one of my favorite days of the year.  Since moving to Boston, though, I have avoided the parade.  I hear it gets a bit rowdy in Southie! But the chaos of the celebrations doesn’t keep me from making a delicious themed dessert every year! And you know I love a good theme!  Two years ago I made this to-die-for Irish Coffee Cake with Irish whiskey, and last year I made these super fun Pots O’ Gold with Guinness.  I decided to change it up again this year to make these insanely easy St. Patrick’s Day treats! They’re like a Rice Krispie treat, but instead of Rice Krispies, they use Lucky Charms, and instead of marshmallows, you make a homemade Bailey’s fluff! Continue Reading

Salted Peppermint Bark

Salted Peppermint Bark with candy canes forming a heart on top

I’ve been on a real Williams Sonoma kick recently. I mean, I’ve always loved their stuff, but recently I’ve been unable to stop myself from making a purchase every single time I walk through the door.  It started when I went in early November and they were giving out samples of the most delicious stuffing and gravy that I have ever tasted! So good that we had to buy both products.  We also got to sample THREE types of peppermint bark: regular peppermint bark, dark chocolate peppermint bark, and salted peppermint bark.

Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

Did you see that Ferrero is offering to pay people to move to Italy and become a professional Nutella taster?! Is that the perfect job, or what?! (If you haven’t seen this, you can find the article on my Facebook page! While you’re there, toss me a like!)  And if you haven’t noticed, I really like to put Nutella on pretty much everything, so why not make Nutella Rice Krispie Treats?

COCOAnut Mini Egg Easter Basket Treats

Don’t be confused by the name – this is Cocoa Pebbles and coconut.  No nuts!

My family is Jewish so I never got Easter baskets as a child, but I always LOVED Easter candy.  Still do!  My favorites have always been Cadbury Creme Eggs and Cadbury Mini Eggs.  THE. BEST.  Unfortunately, the timing of Easter often coincides with Passover and the Passover dietary laws prohibit Easter candy…okay, not specifically Easter candy, but corn syrup is a no-no. Not only can you not eat it, but you can’t even have it in your house.

so thick!
