Hot Fudge Sauce

Hot Fudge Sauce

Writer’s block is rough. I’m gonna chalk it up to jetlag, considering I was in my bed at 10pm last night trying to write this post. I also deleted the first 5 things I wrote. I was trying to be all clever and observant about […]

Chocolate Dipped Cones

Chocolate Dipped Cones

July is National Ice Cream Month and I intend on taking full advantage of that. The only problem is that LA doesn’t really have ice cream places as much as frozen yogurt places all over the place. The solution? I’ll just have to make my […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups

This post is coming to you from the Nissan dealership lounge. Exciting, I know. I’m going to be sitting here for about an hour and a half, since my car is way overdue for an oil change plus while I was in Sweden I got […]

Dark Chocolate Bourbon Truffles

Dark Chocolate Bourbon Truffles

I’m not anti-social. I love hanging out with my friends, going out, staying in – whatever. It’s just that it only happens a few nights a week and then the other nights I’m working. But, book a trip for 13 days out of the country? […]

Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie Dough Truffles

Cookie dough truffles make me feel fancy. Maybe it’s because they’re delicately dipped in chocolate (though technically they’re more dunked and rolled around when I make them..) but the word “truffle” just elevates the cookie dough to a higher level. It’s definitely a more acceptable […]

Desserts for the Deserving: Peppermint Marshmallows

Desserts for the Deserving: Peppermint Marshmallows

Before I talk about the wonderful peppermint marshmallows I made, I first need to talk about why I made them in the first place. I am so lucky to have been apart of Desserts for the Deserving hosted by i am baker for the past two […]

Dark Chocolate Cookie Butter Truffles

Dark Chocolate Cookie Butter Truffles

Confession: I’ve never had a Biscoff or Speculoos cookie before. I know that might not seem like a big thing, but it has been a HUGE trend in the food blog world and I didn’t quite jump on the bandwagon. The thing I did try, […]

Chokladbollar: Swedish Chocolate Balls

Chokladbollar: Swedish Chocolate Balls

You guys, there are only 3 of these left. I made these around 5:30/6pm yesterday and after sharing them with only 3 other people, there are only 3 left. I am too embarrassed to even see how many of these I ate yesterday. But the […]

Pinot Noir Dark Chocolate Truffles

Pinot Noir Dark Chocolate Truffles

There’s nothing worse than when vacation is over and you’re packing everything up, mentally preparing yourself for your 6 hour flight and layover in Denver, Colorado, and you have to say goodbye to family. Wah. I was in Sarasota, Florida visiting my dad’s side of […]

Chocolate Covered Caramels

Chocolate Covered Caramels

I made these for Prom. Not like actual prom because that was 5 or 6 years ago and please, this 23 year old was not about to go to a high school prom. Seeing all the pictures on Facebook from my younger friends was enough […]

Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

Trust me when I say this stuff is addicting. Every time I walk past the fridge, I need to sneak a little taste. Not heaping spoonfuls like with Nutella, but a little taste. Every. Freaking. Time. I can’t stop. Thankfully, a good majority of this sauce […]

Homemade Marshmallows

Homemade Marshmallows

This post is for all of you East Coasters because, let’s face it, it was 85 degrees and sunny in California this weekend. I know I’m an east coast girl through and through, but I could definitely get used to this weather. What’s not to […]
