Reese’s Peanut Butter Cupcakes

26 Feb

Peanut butter lovers, prepare for glory. If you love a Reese’s cup (and who doesn’t?) you will adore these cupcakes. They consist of a chocolate cupcake with a peanut butter filling. As if that’s not decadent enough, they are then smothered with a sweet peanut butter frosting and a drizzle of melted peanut butter. Finally they’re topped with a miniature Reese’s cup.

Here’s a preview of the final product. Drooling yet?

Springtime Lemon Lime Cupcakes

3 Apr

My friend Jenine had a birthday recently, so I decided to make cupcakes. Jenine really loves lemon (you should see how many wedges she squeezes into her water) so I wanted to come up with a bright, citric, lemon-based cupcake for her. The result was these lemon lime cupcakes with a lemon curd filling and lemon frosting. HOLY LEMON!

Valentines Candy #1- Peanut Butter Balls

10 Feb

A friend of mine is throwing a Valentines party this Saturday and I offered to make and bring an assortment of homemade candies. I’m not sure what prompted me to do this since I have very little candy making experience but I figured I could come up with some tasty treats. My first idea was peanut butter balls. I have made them before (although only sloppy versions that never leave my house) and my boyfriend loves them. They’re pretty much homemade Reese’s so I’m banking on the fact that most people REALLY like Reese’s so they should like these too.

Hidden Kisses

4 Jan

This is one of my all time favorite cookies, and yet I only make them once a year. They just seem like a Christmas cookie to me- perhaps because they are always included in the holiday cookie tins my mom, sister and I give out each year. This year was no exception, so I whipped up a double batch and here they are.

Random Snow Day Cookies

17 Dec

The instant a single snowflake falls from the sky I seem to have the urge to feast on endless amounts of junk food. So today when we got a surprise mini snowstorm I ordered up some wings and got my butt in the kitchen to start baking. Unfortunately I was short on supplies (no brown sugar, chocolate chips, oatmeal, raisins or nuts) so I had to get creative. I basically just threw random ingredients in a bowl and made something up as I went along. Here’s how it turned out.
