I enjoy baking my family’s favorite holiday treats at this time of year, including these amazing Caramel Candy Bar Cookies. They’re a bit of cookie and a bit of candy in a single dessert. We love them, and I’m happy to be partnering with the National Candy Association to talk about enjoying confections like this in moderation. Candy […]
Now that it’s Fall, it’s time to decorate the house for the holidays! First comes spooky stuff, then harvest colors and finally a month of the holly jolly, but slow down… I’m just starting level one. I was inspired to make a Halloween craft with Starburst Candy Corn which incidentally is nothing like its nasty predecessor.
I kicked off Fall baking season with chocolate M&M’s and Mott’s apple juice in these Fall recipes as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®. I grew up with the “melt in your mouth, not in your hands” M&M’s philosophy. Eat ’em straight from the bag! They’re just so poppable! But when I spotted […]

Look at all these Nestle’s Valentine’s Day candy treats! SweeTarts, Fun Dip, Butterfinger Hearts, Nestle Crunch Hearts, and more! […]
Deciding what to order from See’s Candies is so hard! There are over 100 items to choose from, and they all look sinfully delicious. But I finally decided to get some chocolate and some candy. Winning decision, oui? Priority #1: I must have milk chocolate and caramel together. Must.Have.It. Milk Butterchews, Milk Butterchews, Milk Butterchews. I […]
I ordered myself a trio of hot gifts from The Swiss Colony, and do you know how fun it was opening that package knowing there were holiday food gift tins inside? I ordered the Small Tin Trio ($43.95) with traditional Christmas foods like Christmas nuts, cookies, and candy. They were just begging to be tasted! But…. Would the holiday gift […]
