Popcorn Box Cake Pops

I decided to make these at the last minute for a Red Carpet-themed birthday party I was throwing, and they turned out SO cute.  I was skeptical on the design as it involved a lot of drawing with a candy writer, but again, I just loved the finished product – totally worth a try regardless of your general artistic talents. Making the actual cake part of the...

Popcorn Cupcakes

So maybe “popcorn cupcakes” isn’t the best title for this post since it sounds a little disgusting, but I’m not feeling super creative today.  They ARE tasty, and no, there is not actual popcorn involved.   I recently threw a Red Carpet-themed birthday party and these cuties were part of the dessert table.  Making the “popcorn”...

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I think I gain a pound or two just looking at this recipe….but it is totally worth it.  In fact, I am going to go out on a limb and say that the extra hour on the treadmill that you may or may not need after eating one of these amazing little confections is a small price to pay. Since making the cookie dough from scratch isn’t really going to help much...
