Holiday Chocolate Bark Madness!

Okay so I may have gotten a little carried away with the Chocolate Bark this year… and by “a little” I mean a lot. It started off with just one batch of delicious bark, and then I just couldn’t stop thinking of all the different flavour combinations and all the different possibilities of deliciousness. Before I knew it, my kitchen counters were literally covered in different flavours of chocolate bark; each amazingly delicious in their own unique ways.

Mocha Brownie Sandwich Cookies

Lately it seems like I find myself facing very serious baking dilemmas on an increasingly regular basis. Do you ever have this problem? Baking dilemma problems?

Now by baking dilemmas, I don’t mean the question of “to bake, or not to bake?” – because let’s be honest, when faced with that question, I will always very emphatically choose “to bake!”

No, no for me, my baking dilemmas are more a consequence of my ridiculously indecisive nature, which usually makes it near impossible for me to decide exactly what it is that I actually want to bake in a given day – or more importantly, what I want to eat.

Typically my baking dilemmas go a little something like this… “should I bake cupcakes or a layer cake?”; “vanilla or chocolate?”; “pie or cobbler?” “scones or muffins?” … you get the idea.

Recently during one of my episodes of said baking dilemmas, I was debating whether I should make cookies or brownies – and having a seriously hard time. I mean can you blame me? Honestly, sometimes it’s just pure torture trying to decide between two options that are each so delicious.

Then suddenly it hit me, that there was no good reason for me to have to choose – so I didn’t and the result; These Mocha Brownie Sandwich Cookies… Best. Decision. Ever.

I’m so excited to be partnering up with Best Friends for Frosting to get the recipe for these Mocha Brownie Sandwich Cookies! Click here and get the recipe!

Butterscotch Stuffed Brown Butter Skillet Cookie

IMG_9460

I don’t know about you, but when I take a tray of fresh cookies out of the oven, I can usually only wait all of about five seconds before feeling an uncontrollable need to eat one immediately.

Some might say I have absolutely no self control, {and that’s definitely part of it}, but I prefer to think of it as just having good sense. Because I mean honestly, there really is nothing quite like warm homemade cookies, that are still ooey, gooey, fresh from the oven. Are we on the same page here….?

Alright then you’re going to love this recipe just as much as I do, because essentially it’s a giant cookie that you can eat straight out of the pan, while it’s still hot from the oven…. aka the best damn thing ever. Oh and did I mention that its a cookie that is made with brown butter…? So yeah, it really is just the bees knees 😀

I’m so excited to be partnering up with Best Friends for Frosting to share the recipe for this Butterscotch Stuffed Brown Butter Skillet Cookie! So if you are about ready to lick your computer screen like I am, pop on over to their website via this link here and get the recipe! 

Happy baking lovelies <3 <3

Happy Valentines Day Eve lovelies!

Confession;  Cole and I kinda, sorta, don’t celebrate Valentines Day…

Okay I guess I should be a little more specific. When I say we don’t celebrate Valentines Day, I mean we don’t celebrate Valentines Day in the traditional sense. So we don’t buy each other gifts, we don’t go out for dinner, Cole doesn’t send singing men with flowers & chocolates to my place of work, we don’t write each other Valentines Day cards…. you get the gist.

You’re probably thinking we’re some kind of no fun, un-romantic, Valentines Day Grinch couple right? {eeeeps please don’t judge too harshly} I promise we aren’t Valentines Day haters!

It’s just that Cole and I have never really been allthat excited by all of the traditional Valentines Day festivities. Now at the risk of offending all of you readers who are die hard Valentines Day lovers, just hear me out as to why we like to do Valentines Day a little differently….
