Creme Egg Cookies

I love Cadbury Creme Eggs. I always have. I don’t know why I never learned how to make that sweet, glorious filling before now, but it turns out it’s super easy to make! There are so many delicious desserts you could create with this filling, but sandwiching it between two fresh, delicious chocolate cookies is definitely the way to go! So get to baking and you can have these creme egg cookies ready in no time!

Red Wine Chocolate Creme Brulee

I love Valentine’s Day!!! I feel like I say this every year in my Valentine’s Day post, but this holiday gets a lot of hate for being a made-up holiday. Aside from the fact that the holiday is named after a Saint, much like St. Patrick’s Day (which people don’t seem to be complaining about), it’s also a holiday promoting love. We shouldn’t need an excuse to celebrate love, we should be celebrating it every day, but why not have a day that revolves around love?! Plus, I’ll take any excuse for a theme, and to create a delicious dessert like this red wine chocolate creme brulee.

Peanut Butter Cups

Pile of Peanut Butter Cups

I have the hardest time deciding what the best chocolate flavor pairing is! I love coconut and chocolate, and I love fruit and chocolate, and I love caramel and chocolate, but the peanut butter and chocolate combo is a classic. There was that 80s Reese’s commercial where the guy was walking down the street eating chocolate and the girl was walking down the street eating peanut butter and they bump into each other, and boom! Chocolate peanut butter deliciousness! Such a perfect combination. There are so many awesome ways to combine these flavors, but you can’t go wrong with classic chocolate peanut butter cups.

When I have a great idea for a recipe and it fails in testing, I despise throwing away the failure.  I hate to waste all those ingredients!  But these chocolate cherry brownies came about from two failed recipes with almost nothing going to waste and that makes me extra proud of these!

Red Wine Chocolate Bombs

I know a lot of people hate Valentine’s Day or think it’s a made-up holiday, but it’s one of my absolute favorites.  I find myself defending it year after year as one of the best holidays. Aside from the delicious candy, what’s better than an added excuse to tell people how much you love them? Growing up, Valentine’s Day was the holiday where my mom would hide cards and gifts all over the house and all throughout our stuff so we would find cards and candy all day long.  It was the best.  It’s a tradition I’ve tried to carry on (as best as it can be in our tiny downtown apartment).
