Chocolate Covered Reese Cup S’Mores

by Kate on February 20, 2018

Some weeks ago, I was crazy enough to buy a six’er of 2 pack – Reese’s cups. I had plans to make something Valentines’y with them, but then life happened and Valentine’s day came and went. And still sat the six’er in our pantry, bellowing to me. “you know I’m heeeeeere – you know you […]

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Galette

by Kate on January 22, 2018

V’Day is controversial – some people love it – some people hate it. In our house, it falls exactly 3 days after our anniversary, so for Dave, it’s the perfect “two-for-one” scenario. Although nothing beats the year we actually got married and quite literally SKIPPED over Valentine’s day, departing the U.S. on February 13th and […]

Samoa Truffles

by Kate on January 22, 2018

Girl Scout Cookie season always makes me feel a little nostalgic. It brings me right back to the early 90’s, when right after Christmas was over, you knew that it was almost time – COOKIE time. You’d get that obnoxiously sized card stock order form that always tore down the middle, with a different color […]

Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Cheesecake Squares

by Kate on December 18, 2017

I remember when I was a wee young thing, my mom used to make these chocolate chip cheesecake squares. I liked them. ALOT. As I got older this combo stuck in my head and so I made these a few falls ago.  Last weekend it snowed for the first time and I thought, goddamn it’s a […]

Peppermint S’More Pops

by Kate on December 15, 2017

TEN DAYS. HE’S COMING. Were you naughty or nice this year? Well, regardless, I’ve got something that Santa will want when he squeezes his toosh down that chimney even more than the usual decorated sugar cookies that you leave him. Maybe even Rudolph too – who wants carrots after a night of flying through the […]

Oreo Truffle Bark

by Kate on December 5, 2017

I remember the first time I laid my mouth on an oreo truffle. My friend and then roommate Liz came home one night around the hoildays with a cute little christmassy chinese food box from one of her students, filled with these chocolate balls. SOLD. I tried one and I thought “Jesus.H.Christ. WHAT IS THAT”. […]

Chocolate Caramel Turkey S’More Pops

by Kate on November 14, 2017

When I made these beauts this past summer,  I had no idea how many life occasions would call for them. Spiders at Halloween – and now TURKEYS at Thanksgiving! These took some time, mostly in trying to figure out how to put together. I gotta say, I have never searched higher or lower for a […]

Chocolate Covered Spider S’More Pops

by Kate on October 29, 2017

If you saw my Insta story from a couple of weeks ago, you know that I had a massive fail with at attempt at Frankenstein Brownie Pops. In my head, I saw cute, green chocolate covered Frankenstein faces on top of a chewy chocolate brownie, then plopped on a stick for convenience and cuteness. In […]

Chocolate Caramel S’More Galette

by Kate on August 30, 2017

If you look up the word Galette in the dictionary, you’ll see that it is “a very, very lazy version of a pie for people that don’t have time to make an actual pie”. Or, maybe that’s not exactly the definition, but it’s my definition.
