KING CAKE CINNAMON ROLLS ARE THE BEST WAY TO BEGIN YOUR FAT TUESDAY FESTIVITIES! FILLED WITH BROWN SUGAR, PECANS, AND A TINY BABY JESUS – THEY BOAST ALL THE CLASSIC FLAVORS OF TRADITIONAL KING CAKE!
I haven’t packed yet. I have to go to the bank. And the drug
store. And find the chord to my portable charger.
It feels so weird, after all the waiting and the planning
and the prepping, I’m finally on vacation starting tomorrow! And I’m so not
ready for it. Go figure.
Procrastination is a very near and dear friend of mine. It’s what I do. Stitched into the fabric of who I am. But! I was actually way ahead of the game with these cinnamon rolls. Like, crazy ahead. I first posted about them on January 16?! Just a few days after the beginning of Epiphany – when it’s all King Cake all the time.
PUT LEFTOVER VALENTINE’S CHOCOLATES TO GOOD USE WITH THESE ULTRA-GOOEY, SUPREMELY FUDGY TRIPLE CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE BROWNIES. THEY’RE THE ULTIMATE BROWNIE RECIPE!
Another Valentine’s Day recipe? Yes! The day after Valentine’s
Day? Also, yes! We’re putting that clearance candy to good use today with these
Triple Chocolate Truffle Brownies!
After yesterday, you’ve undoubtedly got some chocolates
laying around the house. Or you have plans to go buy some for 75% off. I’m not
It can feel a bit ridiculous and overly indulgent to sit on the couch and pop chocolate after chocolate, truffle after truffle into your mouth. Maybe it’s just me? But, somehow, putting those same exact chocolates into brownie batter makes them less indulgent? Because when you eat a brownie you’re only eating one-maybe-two chocolates and then, you’re good. Versus eating half a box of them in one sitting and still feeling like you’re not satisfied.
Again, maybe it’s just me? I hope it’s not just me.
We’re turning the quintessential Valentine’s Day candy into a must-make dessert with this Giant Conversation Heart Cookie Cake. Enjoy!
A giant conversation heart cookie cake?! That doesn’t taste
like off-brand, expired chalk with a hint of cherry cold medicine?! That’s
actually made of cookie dough and filled with festive candy?!
Yes, that’s what we’re doing today.
Although, you don’t need to do it all today. Or even in one
day. I didn’t. I made the cookies and frosting one day, decorated it the next,
delivered it to my mom the day after.
But, I highly, highly recommend doing it for
Valentine’s Day. For someone you love. Maybe for your mom? Because if she’s even
half as obsessed with cookie cakes as Melba is, she’ll go bonkers for this!
This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Tart is what every chocoholics’ dreams are made of. A crispy, chocolate cookie crust filled to bursting with fresh strawberry jam and the silkiest chocolate ganache you’ve ever tasted. Then a garnish of fresh, bright berries – for good measure and a real “wow” factor. It’ll make you fall in love.
Let’s talk about this chocolate covered strawberry tart,
Let’s talk about the Oreo cookie crust and how dang easy it
is to put together! Because it requires only two ingredients!
Then again, the chocolate filling may be easier? It also
requires only two ingredients!
The strawberry filling is just a simple layer of strawberry jam! We all know I’m partial to Seth’s – it truly is the best! But (and not to sound like the Barefoot Contessa over here), store-bought is fine.
