Peanut Butter Oreo Swirl Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Oreo Swirl

As we wrap up summer, I wanted to share some AMAZING ice cream that I made. Have you seen those Peanut Butter Cup Oreo Cookies? When I saw them I knew that I had to incorporate them into some homemade ice cream. It would be wrong not to. So I used my favorite vanilla ice cream recipe and I added in the crushed up Peanut Butter Cup oreo cookies and a peanut butter sauce to swirl in there. And I have to say this came out better than I ever expected! So here we go – Peanut Butter Oreo Swirl Ice Cream! [Read more...]

Soft M&M Cookies

We all know that I love baking. I’m a huge fan of Cupcakes, but I also love me some cookies. But here’s the thing – they need to be soft. And chewy. I don’t like hard cookies. So I really only like Chocolate Chip Cookies that are straight out of the oven. Warm and still gooey. When I make cookie dough, I only bake what will be eaten right then and there. You’ll never find me baking a whole batch of cookie dough unless I’m taking it somewhere for a party.

The key to a really good cookie is to let the dough sit in the fridge and rest.  I never bake cookies right away after making the dough. Yes, it’s hard not to do that, but I just eat a little cookie dough while I wait! Haha.

I’m on the mission for the perfect Soft M&M Cookie recipe. Candy + Cookie = Perfection. Am I right? These cookies have both chocolate chips AND M&M’s in the dough. Say whaaaat?! Yup. So it’s like a double whammy. Let’s take a peek…

Vanilla Drops

I can’t believe that it’s already December. I feel like as I get older I have a harder time getting into the holiday spirit. And this year isn’t any different. I just can’t get into it. I don’t even want any gifts – there’s nothing that I want; there’s nothing that I need. I tried baking some cookies to see if it helps to get into the holiday spirit, but it just didn’t. So I can’t share that with you, but I can share some awesome cookies! And I’ll do just that. [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites with Cookie Dough Buttercream

Everyone pretty much knows I’ve got a fierce sweet tooth, so whenever I have to take something to a party or a girl’s night, I’m usually asked to bring dessert. And that’s totally fine by me because then I get to make something new to try! I love being able to make something new, taste it, and get it out of my house so I don’t it all! [Read more...]

Texas Sheet Cake in a Cup

So yesterday you got to see how absolutely wonderful the Texas Sheet Cake was that I made. It was so full of chocolate that you thought you’d died and gone to heaven.

In the original recipe, the Pioneer Woman used an 13×18 sheet cake pan. I used a 10×15 jelly roll pan. So since her pan was bigger than mine, I reserved some of the cake batter so that it didn’t overflow the pan when it baked.

I spooned enough batter to fill up half of this coffee mug.

Then I sprinkled a few chocolate chips on top.

Then I put it in the microwave for about 1 minute and 15 seconds.

I spooned a little bit of the frosting on top (while it was hot).

And then I grabbed a spoon for a taste.

And that’s all she wrote.

If that’s not an incentive to use a 10×15 jelly roll pan instead of an 13×18 sheet pan,
than I don’t know what is ;)   Now that’s a cup full of chocolatey goodness!
