Bites from other Blogs

  • Easter may be over for this year, but the Easter Chick Cookies that Diamonds for Dessert made for the holiday are cute enough that you could get away wit making them any time. The cookies themselves are lemon honey butter cookies, and the dough is rolled into balls that are pressed together to form the chick bodies. They are also rolled in yellow-tinted shredded coconut before baking to give the chicks a little fuzz. Once they’re baked, all you need to do is add some little chocolate feet, a teeny tiny beak and a couple of eyes and your chicks are ready to show off – and eat!
  • The Pastry Affair‘s S’mores Cupcake look like a perfectly indulgent version of the campfire classic. Each tender chocolate cupcake has a graham cracker crust at its base, as that is a crucial component of a s’more. The cupcake is topped with a thick chocolate glaze and a puff of marshmallow meringue. Don’t forget to toast the meringue with a kitchen torch to get that toasted flavor into this s’more creation. These are definitely gourmet s’mores at their finest and a slightly better fit for a dinner party than the campfire version.
  • Another s’mores infused treat can be found in the Mini S’mores Cookies at Two Peas and Their Pod. These bite sized cookies include graham cracker crumbs, mini chocolate chips, and little marshmallow Mallow Bits, all of which combine to give thee cookies that unforgettable s’mores flavor. Each one is topped with a little piece of Hershey’s chocolate (the standard for campfire s’mores) to complete the look.
  • I’m sure I’m not the only one with some blood oranges still tucked away in my kitchen, and if you also have a few on hand, you’ll definitely want to try making a batch of Blood Orange Frozen Yogurt, like Kitchen Konfidence did recently. Frozen yogurt is surprisingly easy to make at home. Blood orange juice and sugar are reduced to form a thick, intense syrup which is folded into full fat greek-style yogurt. The resulting dessert is smooth, creamy and packs a lovely blood orange flavor. You’ll want an ice cream maker for the best results, but recipes like these are good motivation to add one to your Amazon wish list.
  • Banana cream pies and coconut cream pies are both classics, no matter how you slice them. The Coconut Banana Cream Tarts at Lauren’s Latest combine the flavors of  both of these pies into a hybrid dessert sure to please fans of both varieties of cream pie. The base for these tarts is a coconut-infused pudding that is topped with slices of fresh banana. A layer of whipped cream and a sprinkling of coconut finish these off and make them just about irresistible.  The tarts – or mini pies, if you prefer – are baked in individually sized tart pans for single serving desserts, and could easily be adapted to a single large tart
