Cranberries are often described as being both tart and sweet, but they definitely lean more towards the tart end of that spectrum.

How to Make a Single Serving Rice Krispy Treat

Rice Krispy Treat for Two

I make them for many different occasions throughout the year, and I use white, milk and dark chocolate depending on what type of treat I am ... Read More »

Salted Dark Chocolate Count Chocula Candy Bars

Salted Dark Chocolate Count Chocula Bars

I always get nostalgic when I see Halloween cereals hitting the shelves. I remember the ads for Count Chocola, Booberry and Frankenberry from my Saturday morning cartoon days all too well, so they really are part of the season – even if I don’t eat as much of them now as I did back then!
