These Oreo Pudding Cookies are a fantastic new twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie! The pudding mix inside makes the cookies super soft and chewy!

I’ve officially been in my apartment for one month now!

And y’all – I didn’t know how bad I needed this apartment, but I am so glad to be here.

Having my own space is life-changing. I love that my house stays clean when I clean it, and I love that I can design it my own way, burn my own smelly candles, watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians without a disappointed glare from my parents, and not have to share my food.

In other words, I’m still in the honeymoon stage. I’m not at the point where I’m hating anything or something’s on the fritz. And I’m going to try to stay in this honeymoon stage as looooong as possible 🙂

When I first moved in, I wanted to bake something for the neighbors in my building as a thanks for being patient while I make a ton of noise, and I figured cookies were a good way to introduce myself. The only thing was, I didn’t want to make my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe because it required chilling and I still had a lot of errands to run for things I forgot to get before moving.

It was then that I discovered a lone box of Oreo instant pudding mix and a bag of mini Oreos in a moving box and knew I could easily transform that tasty pudding into a pudding COOKIE. AKA, the easiest cookies ever… AKA, the softest cookies in the world.

If you’re wondering if you can substitute the pudding for something else in this recipe, the answer is a big fat NO. These are called pudding cookies. There are no substitutions! If you don’t want to make these, try my Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies (the link’s above!) for a more traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe.

You can however, substitute the Oreo pudding mix for regular instant vanilla pudding mix. Some stores carry the Oreo pudding all the time, and other times it’s hard to find. Regular instant vanilla pudding mix will work in a pinch if you cannot find the Oreo mix!

The secret ingredient is instant pudding mix, which makes these cookies impossibly soft & chewy for DAYS! And, no chilling the dough required! This recipe is structured exactly like chocolate chip cookies but with the must-have addition of pudding mix, which gives the cookies an amazingly light and fluffy texture and makes them SUPER soft & chewy. And if they last that long in your house, they’ll stay so soft for days. Me? I had to get rid of these as soon as I made them… to very happy neighbors 🙂

Chocolate Guinness Stout Cake with Chocolate Ganache

This Chocolate Guinness Stout Cake with Chocolate Ganache is one of the BEST cakes I've EVER made! Moist, fluffy, tender cake with a rich, complex and deep chocolate flavor thanks to the stout beer. The ganache glaze sets it over the top! Easy to make and even easier to eat! This cake is a real crowd-pleaser! This Chocolate Guinness Stout Cake with Chocolate Ganache is a chocoholic’s DREAM!! Moist, fluffy, rich and deep chocolate Bundt cake with a sinfully delectable chocolate ganache glaze. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

I realized something recently: I need a love guru.

Are there people out there who are love guru specialists? How does one become a love guru? Is there like some kind of test you have to take to become one, or do you just get numbers given to you left & right? Do you have to be a Brazilian model? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.

But yet… I need one. Because I’m a little rusty in the love & dating department.

I used to be so suave. I had the moves and I was about 60 pounds lighter. But now I’m like a fat clunky dork and can’t get a date to save my life. I thought I had my first date in 3 years (!!!) a month or so ago, but once I showed up, I realized it most definitely was not a date. It was a socially-awkward dude doing his homework while I talked. And he talked about how much he thought a certain A-list actor was good looking while I sat there picking at my straw in the tea I’d purchased and cursed the gods above yet again because I don’t look like Ryan Gosling. BLAST.

And now? I am a master communicator. I talk with guys on dating apps all the time. And then I ask them out, because it’s a DATING APP AND ARE WE ONLY GOING TO TALK ON TINDER FOR THE REST OF OUR EVER-LOVING LIVES OR ACTUALLY GET A DRINK? And they say, “oh yeah, maybe next weekend” and then next weekend rolls around and I ask again, and they say “oh yeah I forgot. Maybe next weekend!” and then we NEVER hang out because my friends convinced me those guys must have girlfriends or wives.

 

So this is where the love guru would come in: they’d weed through potential dates, select the best options, and then they’d tell me when to abort, like when a guy uses too many emojis for it to be okay, or when they only want someone to kind of talk to/flirt with but never meet. WHERE ARE YOU, LOVE GURU?

Anyway, while I’m over here getting lonely and old, I made you a cake! Specifically, a Chocolate Guinness Stout Cake with Chocolate Ganache Glaze. And OH MY GOSH IT IS SO GOOD.

This Chocolate Guinness Stout Cake with Chocolate Ganache is one of the BEST cakes I've EVER made! Moist, fluffy, tender cake with a rich, complex and deep chocolate flavor thanks to the stout beer. The ganache glaze sets it over the top! Easy to make and even easier to eat! This cake is a real crowd-pleaser! This cake is so supremely moist, fluffy, tender and totally bursting with rich, deep, complex chocolate flavor. Before you roll your eyes at my descriptors, LISTEN, OKAY. The Guinness stout totally amps up the chocolate flavor, yielding a very rich depth. If a regular chocolate cake’s level is like a 5, this elevates it to like a 10. It really brings out the complexity of the cocoa and really emphasizes that richness. You don’t really taste the stout at all; it’s just a wonderful vehicle to deliver that pure, unadulterated chocolate flavor.

The ganache glaze sets it over the top! Easy to make and even easier to eat! This cake is a real crowd-pleaser! And of course, chocolate ganache glazes are necessary because MORE CHOCOLATE.

A little birdie told me this cake would be great for St. Patty’s Day comin’ up. Just sayin’!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Bars

These REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP BARS are heavenly homemade squares that taste JUST like deep-dish, ultra fudgy peanut butter cups. An easy, quick, and entirely no-bake dessert! If you love peanut butter cups but wish they were jumbo-sized, I’ve got you covered! These Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Bars are just the ticket to squashing your giant PB cup craving!

I have yet to bake in my new kitchen… but that changes TODAY!

I have been dying to test out my appliances and get baking for my new neighbors, but the whole organizing your life back into order thing after moving is kind of exhausting. Who knew I had so much stuff that needed to be bubble-wrapped, then unwrapped, then put away? GAH.

And no, I have not read that magical book about tidying up, thankyouverymuch.

So basically I’ve been waking up, feeding my still-confused dogs and getting to work around the house. But oddly, I love all the chores of putting things away and wiping down my own counters. Yes, I’ve found some odd sense of joy in laundering my own socks, and I appreciate how nice it is to come home to a clean house.

I know this feeling will eventually wear off and I will want to set fire to my clothes rather than launder them, but for now I’m enjoying this new-house honeymoon stage 🙂

Anyway, I was thinking about what to bake first in my new place and these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Bars, which I’d previously made at my old place, came to mind. But the thing is… these bad boys are no-bake, so I don’t even need the oven to whip them up.

…Which is going to rock in a few months when it’s a bajillion degrees and turning on the oven is about as logical as jumping from a three-story building into a pit of rocks.

These REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP BARS are heavenly homemade squares that taste JUST like deep-dish, ultra fudgy peanut butter cups. An easy, quick, and entirely no-bake dessert! These are slightly addictive; you’ve been warned! The base consists of a little confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, and graham cracker crumbs, which give them a slight crunch and helps the bar hold its shape. The mixture is poured into a pan and set in the fridge, then topped with a thick, smooth layer of chocolate ganache. The result is a deep-dish, ultra fudgy peanut butter cup bar that’s totally out. of. this. world.

Who wants to come over!?

These Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Bars are like a fudgy, deep-dish PB cup! Totally easy to prepare, comes together quickly and is entirely no-bake!
Ingredients
  • FOR THE BARS:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups honey graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (do not use the natural kind, as it is too oily)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • FOR THE CHOCOLATE:
  • 1 (12 oz) bag semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 4 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Line a 9x13" rectangular baking pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil lightly with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla until combined. Mixture will be runny. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Once the bar layer has somewhat firmed up, make the chocolate topping. In a microwaveable bowl, combine the chocolate chips, peanut butter and heavy cream. Microwave on HIGH power for 20-30 seconds, stir, then heat again for another 10-15 seconds, stirring until melted and smooth. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter layer and smooth out the top.
  4. Refrigerate once more for another 30 mins at least (up to overnight if you wish) before cutting into bars.

These REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUP BARS are heavenly homemade squares that taste JUST like deep-dish, ultra fudgy peanut butter cups. An easy, quick, and entirely no-bake dessert! Fudgy, peanut buttery goodness topped with a silky smooth chocolaty layer. These bars are the definition of HEAVEN!

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals to make and eat. For starters, there are so many options: scrambles, omelets, pancakes, waffles, French toast… and those are just a few of your main course choices! Personally, I’m a big carb fan for breakfast, and my carb of choice would have to be WAFFLES. Big, fluffy, light-as-air waffles with a slightly crisp exterior and fully loaded with butter and syrup.

But sometimes, you need a change from the regular ol’ waffle. An upgrade, if you will. And these Cookies & Cream Waffles are quite the upgrade! Light and fluffy waffles studded with real chocolate sandwich cookie pieces and a wonderful, almost creamy vanilla flavor. And because you can’t just serve cookies & cream waffles plain, I jazzed them up with some whipped cream, chocolate syrup and additional sandwich cookies for a decadent treat that’s sure to please the entire family!

Chocolate Brownie Pudding Cake

This CHOCOLATE BROWNIE PUDDING CAKE is a cross between a crisp brownie, a fluffy cake and a molten lava cake in ONE dessert! Easy, FAST and impressive, it makes its own decadently delicious chocolate sauce in the same pan AND it's under 200 calories a slice! Ultra rich, extremely decadent and super chocolaty, this Chocolate Brownie Pudding Cake is one for the books!

So as dumb as this sounds, I didn’t realize how much stuff I have to pack for this whole moving-out business.

I have SO much crap.

I’ve been selling a lot of things on eBay and whatnot, and donating a ton of stuff, too. And there’s STILL a ton of crap!

Granted, I have a lot of food props – cake stands, miniature plates, an assortment of tarnished forks, and the like – ALL of which need to be bubble wrapped.

And who knew bubble wrap was so dang expensive!? Clearly I was ill-prepared for this whole moving business.

In between throwing old socks out and carefully wrapping cake stands, I’ve been stuffing my face copiously with this Chocolate Brownie Pudding Cake. I know you guys are probably on diets with the whole New Year’s resolution business, and I respect that. That’s why this cake is just under 200 calories a slice. YOU ARE WELCOME.

But those of us who aren’t on diets, you will not be able to tell that this cake is somewhat diet-friendly. I promise you. There’s no dry, crumbly cake in sight and there’s certainly no fakeness, either. It’s all real-deal ingredients, ready for consumption and a lot of moaning at how delicious it is. What can I say? I aim to please.

So this cake recipe was inspired by a new cookbook I picked up recently called Incredibly Decadent Desserts by Deb Wise. It’s from the makers of Cooking Light Magazine, and normally I’m not a big diet person, but the cover (of what appears to be a thick slice of a s’mores concoction) won me over. And once I saw this recipe, the rest was history!

This CHOCOLATE BROWNIE PUDDING CAKE is a cross between a crisp brownie, a fluffy cake and a molten lava cake in ONE dessert! Easy, FAST and impressive, it makes its own decadently delicious chocolate sauce in the same pan AND it's under 200 calories a slice! This cake is a cross between a brownie, a regular cake, and a molten lava cake in one decadent treat. It has the crackly top that everyone loves from brownies, a fluffy and moist cake texture, and the molten lava sauce built in. It’s truly a one-stop shop kinda dessert. (You’re doubly welcome).

This CHOCOLATE BROWNIE PUDDING CAKE is a cross between a crisp brownie, a fluffy cake and a molten lava cake in ONE dessert! Easy, FAST and impressive, it makes its own decadently delicious chocolate sauce in the same pan AND it's under 200 calories a slice! And like I said, one piece (the pan yields about 9 pieces or so) clocks in at just about 200 calories, plus 1 Tablespoon of the sauce. Of course, you may want to add low-fat ice cream or froyo on top, but who am I to tell you how to live your life?

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to bubble wrap ALLTHETHINGS and eat ALLTHECAKE.

Soft & Chewy Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting

These Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are incredible! Soft, chewy, fudgy brownies flavored with red velvet and topped with a luscious cream cheese frosting! Soft, chewy and totally rich, these Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are delightful! Super simple to make and easy to decorate for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday!

I love recipes that can be made holiday-ish or made for everyday consumption.

In the past, I was all about completely unique desserts using seasonal ingredients like Cadbury eggs or the flavor-of-the-moment Oreos. But I realize not everyone has access to those ingredients, which renders basically the whole recipe useless.

So now, I love making what we bloggers call “evergreen content.” This basically means it’s content that never really goes out of style year after year, or even within the seasons. And these Red Velvet Brownies most certainly fit that bill!

These guys have been the bane of my existence, to be frank. I have made like three or four batches of them before finally liking this recipe best. The first one was totally my fault – I goofed and added like 3/4 cup of cocoa powder to the batter, yielding a, well, brownie. No red in sight. The next batch, I added less cocoa but still too much for a red velvet color. And the third one I underbaked, because I still do that, people.

Finally, fourth time being the charm, I nailed it. And I think you’ll agree!

These are so soft, chewy and moist and flavored with all that red velvet goodness. They have just a touch of cocoa powder to give it that oomph without it being a full-on chocolate brownie. And of course, the red color is GORGEOUS! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, Christmas… or a random Thursday 🙂

These Red Velvet Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting are incredible! Soft, chewy, fudgy brownies flavored with red velvet and topped with a luscious cream cheese frosting! But because I can’t leave anything be, I added a cream cheese frosting. (Because duh). It is so creamy, dreamy and smooth and totally drives home the red velvet flavor in these bars.

Mouth, prepare to be amazed.

The BEST Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting

This truly is the BEST and most PERFECT Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting! So easy, impressive and quick to prepare. Fudgy, moist, fluffy cake with tender crumb and outrageous chocolate flavor topped with a homemade fudge frosting and sprinkles. Great for birthdays, holidays, or any occasion when you're craving chocolate! I’m not even kidding you – this is the BEST Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting ever! Moist, tender, fluffy cake with a delectable frosting you have to try!

So today is my birthday – yay!

I am a whopping 26 years young. < I hate when people say that because I feel like I am old, not young, and this is why:

  • I go to bed by 9:30pm at the latest
  • I have to take my pills by 6:30pm or else I’ll suffer
  • I eat dinner around 4:30 every night
  • I have bad sciatica problems and often am seen clutching my sides and screaming “my HIPS!”
  • I’m an early riser
  • My knees literally make a crunching sound when I walk. They crack so loudly and crunchily that I can literally feel the crunch in my jowls. (Is that weird? Yes.)
  • I wear shower caps in the bath
  • I like pudding

I’m sure there are more reasons why I feel so damn old, but I can’t think of any, which is probably another reason why I feel old. *sigh*

ANYWAY. Today everyone in my family has to work, so I’m all alone (like every day) and the highlights of my day would be getting a massage in the evening, and buying two books that come out today. In other words, I’m getting CRUNK at 9am at Barnes & Noble.

I’m lame, I know. Don’t rub it in.

But you know what? I’m kind of glad I have a laid-back birthday, because sometimes there’s so much pressure on birthdays having to be these grand, extravagant things. Although I wouldn’t mind Tom Hiddleston taking me out for a drink later. (Call me, Tom).

The good news about all of this? I have CAKE! And I could not have asked for a better cake. Seriously, this stuff is better than a bakery cake. FOR REAL.

The cake recipe itself yields such a rich, decadent cake that’s moist and fluffy in texture with a tender crumb. You could feasibly eat this cake plain, it’s so moist and fabulous, but why would you skip out on fudge frosting?

And the frosting – Y’ALL HOLD ME. It’s so good. I ate a good several spatula-spoonfuls of it before frosting the cake and had to hold myself back from eating the whole bowl. It’s exactly what you need your frosting to be: fudgy, smooth, indulgent goodness.

This truly is the BEST and most PERFECT Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting! So easy, impressive and quick to prepare. Fudgy, moist, fluffy cake with tender crumb and outrageous chocolate flavor topped with a homemade fudge frosting and sprinkles. Great for birthdays, holidays, or any occasion when you're craving chocolate! Combine the two together and you have the world’s greatest cake, in my humble opinion. It really is that good.

Best of all, you can totally make this into a two-layer cake, cupcakes, or a Bundt cake, depending on how you prefer your cakes. I *almost* made this into a Bundt, but decided last minute on the ease of using a 9×13″ rectangular pan. I’ll leave some pan times in the recipe below!

The BEST Chocolate Cake with Fudge Frosting

This fudgy, outrageously delicious Chocolate Cake may be the BEST Chocolate Cake I've EVER had. Seriously! You've got to try it with this decadent fudge frosting, too.
Ingredients
  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 & ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder (I like Rodelle's Organic Cocoa)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup HOT black coffee (make sure it's strong!)
  • FOR FUDGE FROSTING:
  • ½ cup butter, cubed
  • 4 ounces (1 small box) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 (16 ounce) box confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • Sprinkles for decorating
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a 9x13" rectangular baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. Or, if using another pan, spray liberally with cooking spray (such as two 9" rounds, or a Bundt pan, or line 2 muffin tins with 24 paper liners).
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until combined. Add in the oil, vanilla, buttermilk and eggs and beat on low speed until combined. Gently and slowly pour in the hot coffee until the batter comes together. Batter will be quite thin; this is okay.
  3. Pour the batter evenly into the pan or pan(s) or cupcake liners. Bake the 9x13" rectangular pan for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist, not wet, crumbs. Cool completely. (Other pan times will be at the end of this recipe).
  4. To make the frosting: In a large bowl, combine the cubed butter and chopped chocolate bar. Microwave on HIGH power for about 30 seconds, stirring until completely melted and smooth. Cool for 5 minutes. Add the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and beat it on HIGH speed for 5-7 minutes or until the frosting is light and fluffy. It's easiest to do this in a stand mixer.
  5. Spread the frosting onto the cooled cake and smooth out the top. Sprinkle liberally with sprinkles, if using. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to set before cutting into slices.
  6. FOR CUPCAKES: Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  7. FOR BUNDT CAKE: Bake for 55-65 minutes.
  8. FOR TWO 9" ROUND CAKES: Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Fudgy, moist, fluffy cake with tender crumb and outrageous chocolate flavor topped with a homemade fudge frosting and sprinkles. Great for birthdays, holidays, or any occasion when you're craving chocolate! This cake is just out of this world, you guys! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies

These Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies are fantastic! Fudgy, peanut buttery, brown sugar blondies topped with a crackly, crisp sugar topping and rich, melt in your mouth Hershey Kisses. Just like the cookies but so much easier! Everyone’s had a peanut butter blossom cookie, but have you tried Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies?! These are so much easier than dropping cookies and make for gooey, fudgy bars!

I don’t know about you, but peanut butter blossoms are some of my favorite cookies.

A soft and chewy peanut butter cookie topped with a solid chocolate Kiss candy… just perfection!

I know they’re kind of Christmas-y, or at least, they’re popular at Christmastime in the Parker household. But I figured since they’re made with Kisses and Valentine’s Day is coming up… well, you can do the math 🙂

I found the idea for these from my friend Ashley over at Baker by Nature, and because I was pondering ways to make these cookies into bars. Personally, bars are one of my favorite things to make because they’re such a cinch – throw the ingredients into the pan and bake! No dropping, rolling, or cutting anything out, and certainly no waiting for batches to finish before you can put another pan in. Not even a dough chilling!

These Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies are fantastic! Fudgy, peanut buttery, brown sugar blondies topped with a crackly, crisp sugar topping and rich, melt in your mouth Hershey Kisses. Just like the cookies but so much easier! And these could not be more simple, I promise! Made in one bowl, baked in one pan, mixed with one spatula. See? I told you this was already easier than the cookie version!

To make these, simply melt some butter. You can do this in the microwave, or on the stove – whichever you prefer. I honestly alternate, as sometimes I feel like I’d rather cook it on the stove, or perhaps my microwave’s being used.

These Peanut Butter Blossom Blondies are fantastic! Fudgy, peanut buttery, brown sugar blondies topped with a crackly, crisp sugar topping and rich, melt in your mouth Hershey Kisses. Just like the cookies but so much easier!  Whisk some brown sugar and peanut butter into the melted butter, followed by eggs, vanilla, and your dry ingredients. Pour the mixture into a foil-lined & greased pan, scatter sugar over the top, and bake! Once it’s baked, take it out of the oven and dot the top with those adorable baby Kisses candies.

And then try not to freak out over their cuteness!

(By the way – these are BABY Hershey’s Kisses. I found them in the baking aisle (near the chocolate chips!) at Target. They’re seriously like half the size of a regular Hershey Kiss candy and they come unwrapped… and are perfect for baking. If you cannot find them, simply use regular Hershey’s Kisses!)

  • Hershey's Miniature Kisses (available in the baking aisle at Target stores. If you cannot find these unwrapped mini Kisses, use regular unwrapped Kisses or even chocolate chunks)
Instructions

  2. In in medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat until melted and smooth. Whisk in the brown sugar until combined and let cool about 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the creamy peanut butter, followed by the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla. Whisk in the dry ingredients until a thick, smooth batter comes together.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle the top liberally with the white sugar. Bake for approx. 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes, then dot the top with the miniature Hershey's Kisses or chocolate chunks. Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting into squares.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownie Pie

This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownie Pie is a simple and stunning dessert! A fudgy brownie "crust" topped with a light & fluffy strawberry pudding mousse and topped with chocolate-covered berries. Have your fruit and cover it in chocolate, too!This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownie Pie is exceptional!

Y’all – I am DONE with my book!

Where’s my flute of champagne?!

I am so so so glad I’m finished, but also kind of sad. I guess it’s like when you’re pregnant and you have the baby. You miss being pregnant, but you’re also like thank god it’s out of me so I can have my body back. Except replace “baby” with “book” and “body” with “life.”

And now I can slightly have my life back again, which means I can dip my feet yet again in the online dating world, or go on a vacation or drink champagne starting at noon daily because I’m done, y’all.

Of course, there’s still editing to do and whatnot, but that’s okay. The bulk of the work is over and for that I’m eternally grateful. Also, I’m never writing 2 books in 1 year again. (Ask me in 2018 and I guarantee I’ll do it again).

So now that the book writing’s over and the holidays have passed, it’s time to start shoving Valentine’s Day in yo faces. (Sorry not sorry!!)

And the perfect way to segue into Valentine’s Day is by giving you the recipe for this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownie Pie. Let me just say: it’s awesome!

This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownie Pie is a simple and stunning dessert! A fudgy brownie "crust" topped with a light & fluffy strawberry pudding mousse and topped with chocolate-covered berries. Have your fruit and cover it in chocolate, too!I have a recipe very similar to this one in my new book, and my book recipe had me thinking – there are a lot of different flavor combinations here besides the one I used! And because of Valentine’s Day, I figured strawberry was an appropriate choice… and boy, was I right!

First, you bake your brownie. It’s essential to use an 8×8″ pan size pouch of brownie mix here. If you can’t find that, measure out about 2 cups brownie mix and add your ingredients (I’ll post the measurements in the recipe below!!)

This Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownie Pie is a simple and stunning dessert! A fudgy brownie "crust" topped with a light & fluffy strawberry pudding mousse and topped with chocolate-covered berries. Have your fruit and cover it in chocolate, too!Bake your brownie and let it cool. Then, whip up your strawberry pudding layer. It’s literally strawberry pudding mix + milk. Then fold in some whipped cream (or Cool Whip if you fancy like me) and spread that goodness over the brownie layer.

The hardest part is letting this bad boy refrigerate for a few hours to set and get all purty and fab. But once it’s ready to cut, just try not to face plant it.

You guys… I have a problem.

A novel-buying problem.

No, not like an original buying problem. Like a novelBOOK buying problem. It’s getting a little out of hand. And by ‘a little’, I mean I’m buying like 3 or more a day since Christmas.

I now have 20 novels to read once I’m done writing my book (which should be supersuper soon!). All novels I’ve never read before and didn’t know existed because: I haven’t read a book in a year.

EEP.

I know, I know. How horrible, right? I’m an English major, a two-time author and a food writer and I haven’t read a book in a freakin’ year. But in my defense, I’ve been writing TWO books in one year, plus my blog, which is a lot of writing, FYI.

But I have read magazines! Lots of them. So at least I’m not a total ingrate, right? (Tell me I’m not pleasepleaseplease).

So I’m making up for lost time and that new book smell by buying ALLTHEBOOKS on Amazon and reading them front to back from here until Christmas again. So if you have a good book recommendation, leave it in the comments! (FWIW, I like ‘harder’ books – ones about addiction, marital troubles, troubled teens, you name it. Hard issues.)

Anyway! Now let’s talk about these Mint Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs which you need to read about and then promptly MAKE.

A few months ago, I posted these Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs and everyone seemed to go gaga for them, so I knew I had to do a fun spin with another Oreo flavor. Enter: the Mint Oreo Truffle.

Made with the Mint Oreos and ground up bits of Andes mints inside(!!) they are delightfully minty and SO EASY to make. Seriously, if you are or if you know of a mint lover, these are next on your list. Promise me?

These MINT OREO TRUFFLE BROWNIE BOMBS are a minty delight! No-bake mint Oreo truffles wrapped in a fudgy baked brownie and coated in chocolate & Andes Mints. So simple to whip up and a great way to impress anyone you serve! And I know it’s *too soon* to talk about Valentine’s Day, but hear me out: I’m a food blogger, which means I gotta start cranking out V-Day recipes in early January in order for them to get traction, get seen, get pinned, etc. in time for February. SO, that said – these would make an awesome Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie!

Now if you need me, I’ll be reading!

These Mint Oreo Truffle Brownie Bombs are delightfully minty, super chocolaty and a cinch to whip up. Impress your guests with these over the top truffles!
Ingredients
  • 1 box fudge brownie mix, plus ingredients on back of box
  • ⅔ pkg (about 20 cookies) MINT Oreo cookies, finely crushed
  • ½ pkg (4 oz) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp mint extract, divided
  • 1 cup Andes mint chips, plus ⅔ cup for garnish
  • 1 pkg chocolate almond bark (such as CandiQuik)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions for fudgy brownies. Pour into a greased 13x9" rectangular baking pan and bake for 19-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist, not wet, crumbs. Do not bake too long as the brownies MUST be fudgy in order to make the bombs work. Cool completely.
  2. While brownies cool, make your Mint Oreo truffles. In a large bowl, combine the Mint Oreo crumbs, cream cheese, and ½ tsp mint extract with a rubber spatula until blended and moistened; fold in 1 cup of the Andes mint chips. Roll Tablespoon-sized balls of Mint Oreo truffles and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Cut the brownies into 24 equal pieces, making sure to trim off the edges as they're too crusty and hard to work with. Take a brownie square and gently flatten it in the palm of your hand. Wrap the brownie around the Oreo truffle, pinching and rolling the brownie in your hands to completely enclose the truffle. Place the brownie bombs onto the baking sheet. Freeze for approx. 30 minutes or until solid and firm.
  4. Melt the chocolate candy coating according to package directions or until smooth and melted; gently fold in the remaining mint extract. Dip each brownie bomb into the chocolate coating, coating it completely and allowing excess to drip off. Return to the baking sheet with a fork and sprinkle with remaining Andes mint chips, if desired.

These MINT OREO TRUFFLE BROWNIE BOMBS are a minty delight! No-bake mint Oreo truffles wrapped in a fudgy baked brownie and coated in chocolate & Andes Mints. So simple to whip up and a great way to impress anyone you serve! Minty, chocolaty, fudgy goodness wrapped in one bite-sized morsel of heaven. You’re welcome!
