Chocolate treats


(* none of this is homemade but store bought. I just decorated a teeny tiny bit.)

I’m not sure what you’d call these. Maybe ‘super chocolate brownie fudge bites’. It’s my turn to bring the dessert in our small group and I was able to create these. I’m not a chocoholic like most females, but I’m sure they will be eaten.

I sure hope so, I won’t eat them. Is it bad to bring something you would never want to eat? I’m not too bothered by it. (I’ll bring fruit snacks in my purse for my dessert)

I’m really liking the blue platter though. Love wedding presents.


Do you like chocolate? What is your favorite combination with chocolate? Mint? Fruit? Nuts?  I, if forced to eat it, prefer it with peanut butter. And after convincing myself that I had to at least try one before allowing other to ingest them, I ate one. With peanut butter.


What is the most amazing dessert you have ever had? Big question I know. Go ahead, I’ll wait a few minutes for you to think about it.

Mine is a grasshopper pie I had as a child. ‘Tippins’ was the name of the restaurant in Kansas City. I remember it tasting so amazing. Nothing compared since that. And probably won’t since my memory as a child can be kinda off.

Happy Thursday

Doesn’t this make you want to scoop her up and not let anything bad touch her?! *sigh I am now going to give you a list of the ‘lunch items’ I am making for Travis’ lunch meals. I am stretching it kinda but making desserts is always more fun.

Cranberry Cinnamon Rolls- Check

3 Pumpkin Breads (to freeze)

Caramel Corn- one batch done, one more to make

Cappuccino Brownies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peach Cobbler- be looking for this incredible recipe! (only 3 items!)

Blueberry Muffins

Almond Biscotti

Berry filled Empanadas/ coated in cinnamon sugar

All of these have been in my ‘to do list’ and I am making them all now while I have the energy and freeze most of them. This way when I’m feeling lazy (and I do more often than I should in the winter months) I’ll just pop these suckers out of the freezer. Want to make them with me?
