Chocolate Pudding Pie with Pretzel Crust and Peanut Butter Whipped Cream

Chocolate Pudding Pie with Pretzel Crust and Peanut Butter Whipped Cream

Ok, I missed Pi day last week but it’s not too late to make pie, right? This pie is a life-changer. The salty-sweet crunchy pretzel crust is the base of a chocolate pudding pie topped with homemade light and fluffy peanut butter whipped cream.  The idea for this pie came to me in a dream (I know…ridiculous..) and I have a feeling I’ll be dreaming about it a lot more now that I’ve actually made and eaten it!

Mixed Berry Oat Muffins with Lemon Sugar

Mixed Berry Oat Muffins with Lemon Sugar

 

These muffins are packed full of berries—a berry in every bite!  The flour used for these is comprised entirely of gluten-free oats.  You would think they would be dense, but they come out of the oven nice and fluffy. The sweet and tart lemon sugar topping pairs perfectly with the sweet and tart berries inside. These are a great weekend morning welcome into spring!

Whipped Vanilla Honey Butter

Whipped Vanilla Honey Butter

 

I’m sorry for this post. This butter is about to become your new favorite addiction (it’s definitely mine!) We can all blame my friend Olivia, who evilly introduced me to this at the party we threw for our friend’s birthday last month. I’m pretty sure I saw some people eating it straight out of their spoons. She found it at Costco, but I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen, so I figured “why not?”

Toffee Peanut Butter(scotch) Pudding Cookies

Toffee Peanut Butter(scotch) Pudding Cookies

It’s almost Christmas and I have been taking advantage of this excuse to bake (and eat…) cookies any chance I can get! These cookies aren’t your traditional Christmas cookie in any way, but they just might have to become an annual tradition in my home.  They start with a butterscotch pudding dough and are loaded with milk chocolate toffee bits and peanut butter chips.

Pumpkin Pie with Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookie Crust and White Chocolate Cinnamon Drizzle

Pumpkin Pie with Gluten-Free Oatmeal Cookie Crust and White Chocolate Cinnamon Drizzle

It’s time for more pumpkin (thank goodness).  This time it’s pie! This pie is made with a gluten-free oatmeal cookie crust and a heavenly white chocolate cinnamon drizzle. Usually I like about 20 spoonfuls of whipped cream on my pumpkin pie, but I decided that, with this cookie-crusted pie, some drizzled white chocolate might be amazing. It was.  That’s not to say we didn’t have a few slices of this pie with both white chocolate AND 20 spoonfuls of whipped cream… Read more

Quadruple Chocolate Puppy Chow

Quadruple Chocolate Puppy Chow

Puppy chow (or muddy buddies) is a pretty awesome dessert made by covering Chex cereal in chocolate, butter, and peanut butter, and then powdered sugar. They are stupidly easy to make and so addictive! The original recipe is delicious, but this version starts with Chocolate Chex instead of plain Chex, has more chocolate (obviously), and cocoa powder mixed in with the powdered sugar. Of course, I also brought back the Dark Chocolate M&Ms for an added crunch.  This isn’t the prettiest dessert ever, but it won’t matter when you realize you have eaten it all before anyone else even gets to see it.
