  • Cronuts – doughnuts made from croissant dough – are delicate layered treats that are well worth indulging in when you have a fresh batch. Maria’s Pleasing Plates came up with an easy to make recipe for S’mores Cronuts that are even more decadent than the original cronuts are, and don’t require a trip to a specialty bakery. The donuts are made with crescent dough, a buttery ready-made pastry, that is deep fried. The donuts can then be finished in a variety of ways, but these are glazed with chocolate ganache, stuffed with toasted marshmallows and sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs!
  • Scones are always a good choice when you feel like baking for breakfast because they are relatively quick and easy, meaning that you don’t need to wait for a weekend to make a batch. Deliciously Yum‘s Maple Nut Scones are just one example of a scone recipe that will get your day started right. The tender scones are made with a touch of brown sugar and generously topped with a sweet glaze made with real maple syrup. A sprinkling of pecans gives the scones a little crunch, but it would be nice to incorporate them into the scone dough for a little extra texture if you’re a nut-lover.
  • Another tasty scone recipe comes from The Buttery. Their Clementine Scones showcase the delicate flavor of these popular oranges, which are simply eaten out of hand more often than they are used for baking. The scone dough is made with tangy Greek yogurt, which gives the scones a moist crumb and a flavor base that lets the clementine zest really pop. The scones are finished with a drizzle of Clementine-spiked glaze.
  • Homemade caramels are absolutely delicious, but many cooks find them to be intimidating because they involve working with sugar. This recipe for Microwave Caramels from Kitchen Mason is the perfect low-pressure way to start enjoying homemade caramels. The base of the caramel is cooked completely in a microwave – no candy thermometers needed – and left to set up overnight after it is mixed. In the morning, you’ll have a fresh batch of buttery caramels that you can top with sea salt, dip in chocolate or simply cut into pieces and eat as-is!
  • Some desserts are very visually impressive, perfect for serving on a special occasion when you want a bit of “wow factor” after a meal. I love it when one of these impressive desserts is a lot easier to make than it looks and that is the case with Home Cooking Adventure‘s Nutella Cheesecake. This triple-layer cheesecake starts with a tangy cream cheese base that is divided into parts and has Nutella stirred into one portion of it. The two different batters are layered into a chocolate crumb crust-lined pan and baked until set, then they are topped with a rich Nutella topping for even more chocolate-hazelnut flavor. The finished cheesecake is loaded with flavor and showcases every layer – which are good both separately and together – in each slice.
