Candy Corn Mini Cakes

Candy Corn Mini Cakes

Halloween is a great excuse to have some fun with your baked goods. This could include everything from throwing a bunch of leftover snack-sized candy bars into your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe or creating some elaborately decorated cakes. I’ve found inspiration in vampires and in swamps before, but this time around I found inspiration in a classic Halloween candy and used its subtle flavors ... Read More »

Low Fat Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low Fat Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are really two kinds of pumpkin cookies: chewy cookies and cakey cookies. It’s not impossible to make crispy pumpkin cookies, but since pumpkin is such a moist ingredient, it makes much more sense – and, usually, a better tasting cookie – to bake it into a form where its moisture will be an asset. Cakey cookies are cookies that are fluffy and tender, like ... Read More »

Candy Corn Rice Krispy Treats

Candy Corn Rice Krispy Treats

With a bag of tasty Candy Corn Marshmallows sitting on my kitchen counter, I knew that I had a few options. I could either eat them straight out of the bag, toast them and make s’mores, or make a batch of Rice Krispy treats with them. They’re small enough that s’mores didn’t seem like a good choice, and while eating them straight out of the ... Read More »

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as a good spice bread can be absolutely amazing, but pumpkin has a subtle natural sweetness that can get lost when you start piling in too many additional flavors and it ...

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Scotchies

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Scotchies

During the fall, people who haven’t baked all summer turn on the oven and stock up on flour. It’s a season to bake cakes and pies – which are delicious, but which also aren’t all that easy to eat when you’re looking for a treat that you can snack on around the house. Cookies are always a good option when it comes to snackable sweets, ... Read More »

No-Churn Halloween Cookies n’ Cream Ice Cream

No-Churn Halloween Cookies n' Cream Ice Cream

Cookies n’ cream is an ice cream flavor that never goes out of season, and seems to taste just as good in January as it does in August. It’s generally made with a vanilla ice cream base, to which plenty of crushed Oreos or similar sandwich cookies are churned in. Nabisco has been releasing Oreos in all kinds of unusual flavors lately, from Lemon to ... Read More »

Salted Caramel Apple Mini Bundt Cakes

Salted Caramel Apple Mini Bundt Cakes

Candied apples were never my cup of tea. The contrast between the sweet exterior and the fresh apple always seemed too one dimensional to me. Caramel apples, on the other hand, deliver a wonderful contrast between crisp, juicy, sweet-tart apples and rich, soft, buttery caramel that is perfectly indulgent. I often make them in the fall, as the summertime heat can make the caramels too ... Read More »
