Bakerella always amazes me with her spectacular creations but these Christmas Cake Pops have me running to my kitchen to bake. I’m not sure which ones I love more, the reindeer, the Santa hats or the Christmas trees so I might have to make them all! Bakerella makes creating these holiday Cake Pops possible […]

Cute idea for the playoffs and Super Bowl.
My holidays are not complete without indulging at least once, ok maybe twice in a Starbucks holiday drink. Bakers Royale takes the Peppermint Mocha to a whole new level with these Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes. As if the taste of chocolate espresso and peppermint weren’t enough, these cupcakes are topped with a Swiss meringue buttercream […]
Chocolate with salted caramel might be one of the best flavor combos out there. I once had a salted caramel brownie ice cream and it sort of blew my mind. I just learned about Salted Caramel Ice Cream with Candied Bacon, and that also blew my mind. Around the Table on Blackberry Farm brings us […]
Not in a frosting mood? Frosting always too sweet for you? All about chocolate? Then these Cream Cheese Chocolate Cupcakes are for you. Unique, lovely, decadent and simple, this recipe from How About Orange is exciting. I love the idea of adding peanut butter chips to chocolate chips for the filling. But then again, these are […]
You can’t have the holidays without candy canes. I like to hang them on my Christmas tree, stick them in stockings, and of course, add them to mugs of steamy hot chocolate. Why not add them to sugar cookies too? These Peppermint Sugar Cookies from Recipe Girl are a scrumptous treat, easy to prepare […]
Sweet meets salty in an incredible way in Salted Caramel and Candied Bacon Ice Cream from Spoon Fork Bacon. Jenny, of Spoon Fork Bacon, is admittedly not a dessert eater, but her love for the salty and the savory lends itself perfectly to this dessert creation, proving that one palate can always learn from another. […]
These Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars are as pleasing….
I must make these Truffle Hot Chocolate Balls from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe immediately. Not only do I want to have these stockpiled in my freezer for hot chocolate emergencies, but these truffles are a brilliant gift idea! I love Mel’s advice to fill a mug with them for a friend—an inexpensive, but scrumptious way to […]
“What?” you ask. “Time to think of New Year’s Eve already?” Well, yes. True, my belly is still stuffed from the Thanksgiving dinner I polished off, and over-stuffed from the desserts I somehow managed to also fit, but it’s really never too early to be planning menus, gathering recipes, and deciding exactly what you’d […]
When I saw this recipe for Caramel and Chocolate Pecan….
These are a new twist on the chocolate covered spoons that are sold in fancy coffee shops…the ones that always look too delicious to ever use. While these are every bit as beautiful, if not more so, they’re so simple to make that you’ll feel free to eat one or two…(or three or four)…and still […]
This cake by Darla, from the kitchen of Bakingdom is amazing! It’s a pop of color and a splash of whimsy, with a creative use of eggnog that is sure to win over even a non-eggnog lover, such as Darla herself. In her own words, “The cake looks sort of homespun and old […]
Hi there! I’m Jess from ForgivingMartha and I’m tickled to death to be here today and share a sweet, festive dessert!

There’s […]
