You guys.

I am DONE with my book!

Well… done with the baking and photo portion of my book.

I still have ALLTHEWRITING to do. And believe me, it’s a lot of writing. So if you may hear crickets around here for a little bit of time because I’m trying to juggle cookbook author/blogger/human being and it ain’t easy.

BUT, I’m obviously still going to bringing you ample fabulous holiday desserts. Natch. Because I love ya and it’s the holidays, AKA Hayley’s Prime Time. I live for this time of year!

So: enter these Easy Homemade Peppermint Patties. I know there’s gonna be some wise guy saying it’s easier to buy and unwrap peppermint patties and call them homemade. Congratulations. You have worked the system. But for the rest of us who enjoy baking, creating and living a true life, there’s this recipe. So if you’re going to comment that, I’ll spare you your brilliant comment and say it here: Yes, you could buy peppermint patties at the store, unwrap them and pretend they’re homemade. Go for it, I’m not the boss of you.

BUT BUT BUT! These are better. Seriously.

There’s something so delicious about these melt-in-your-mouth mints. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re easy to make or because homemade stuff is usually better, but I think these would make a wonderful addition to your Christmas gift-giving, whether you place ’em alongside homemade cookies or wrap them in cute bags for neighbors. Again, I’m not the boss of your life or anything, but…

These Homemade Easy Peppermint Patties should end up on your holiday table this Christmas! Simple mint and chocolate-coated candy made with only 6 ingredients you probably have at home! To make these bad boys, simply beat the living daylights out of some butter, corn syrup, peppermint and vanilla extracts. Then beat in some powdered sugar. Well, a lot of powdered sugar. Roll them into balls and gently press them down into discs on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze them briefly, then whip up some smooth chocolate and dip them all! If you’re feeling fancy, top some off with crushed mints – I used candy canes – or even chocolate sprinkles. Live your life!

Be a wise guy and make ’em!

These Easy Homemade Peppermint Patties are so wonderful! They make a ton and are great for giving holiday gifts.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup light corn syrup
  • 1 & ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 pkg (16 oz) chocolate candy coating (such as CandiQuik)
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside briefly.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter, corn syrup and extracts together on medium-high speed for 3 minutes or until fluffy and well combined. Beat in the powdered sugar slowly to incorporate, then on high until completely blended.
  3. Roll a teaspoon or so of dough in your hands to form a ball and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, then with your fingers, gently press down to form a patty. Freeze the patties for about 30 minutes or until firm.
  4. Melt the candy coating according to package directions until smooth. Dip the peppermint patties into the chocolate using a fork and allowing excess chocolate to drip off. I like to dip the fork tines in the chocolate before dipping to ensure the sticky patty doesn't stick to the fork's tines. Gently push the coated patty off of the fork using a toothpick and, if using a garnish, sprinkle while the chocolate's wet.
  5. Allow patties to set before serving.

Easy Homemade Divinity Candy

This Easy Homemade Divinity Candy is fantastic and so great for the holidays! Chewy, soft, melt-in-your-mouth candy that's a cross between nougat and fudge with vanilla and pecans. A must-make recipe! This Easy Homemade Divinity is incredible! Smooth, fudgy and delectable, this snow-white candy is surprisingly simple to make!

So confession: I’ve only had divinity one time before this, and it was from a local favorite, See’s Candies. Maybe you’ve heard of them?

I also had an ex-boyfriend whose grandma loved divinity, and I remember giving her a box for Christmas. So for me, divinity has always kind of felt like a Christmas candy recipe. Maybe I’m wrong, but there’s something so holiday-ish about divinity. It’s snow-white, which is shocking for a candy, and it looks like little melty snowballs. Plus, it’s kind of like a fudge, which always reminds me of the holidays.

If you don’t know, divinity is typically popular in the South and was invented (we think) by Karo corn syrup as a way to market their new product. It’s a cross between fudge, nougat and meringue and is totally unique and unparalleled. It’s so unlike the usual barks, brittles and fudges that are usually found around this time of year, and if you’ve never made it, I highly recommend you do!

The cool thing about this recipe is it can be customized to your preferences, too. I went with a traditional vanilla pecan divinity, but you can replace the vanilla extract with peppermint extract and add in shredded coconut, or use walnuts instead of pecans. Up to you!

This Easy Homemade Divinity Candy is fantastic and so great for the holidays! Chewy, soft, melt-in-your-mouth candy that's a cross between nougat and fudge with vanilla and pecans. A must-make recipe! This Easy Homemade Divinity Candy is fantastic and so great for the holidays! Chewy, soft, melt-in-your-mouth candy that's a cross between nougat and fudge with vanilla and pecans. A must-make recipe! Whatever you do, make yourself a tin of these and thank me later!

*Some Notes: in researching this recipe, I found that a lot of people advise against making this candy on a humid day, such as when it’s raining. The humidity can supposedly affect the way the candy sets up and dries, which is essential for divinity. I have not tested this theory, but I would just heed caution and try and make it on a low-humidity day.

This Microwave Divinity Candy is SO fabulous and perfect for the holidays! Easier than you think to make, it comes together relatively quickly and is great for giving as gifts!
Ingredients
  • 2 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 2 & ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat together the sugar, water, corn syrup and salt. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 7-10 minutes or until the temperature reaches 260 degrees F. on a candy thermometer. Just before the candy reaches temperature, beat the egg whites on high speed using an electric mixer or stand mixer until stiff peaks form.
  3. Remove the boiling candy from the heat and, with the mixer on high speed, stream in the hot candy VERY slowly. It should take you at least 2 or so minutes to fully pour the hot candy mixture into the egg whites. Continue beating the mixture until it's no longer glossy and it holds its shape, about 6-10 minutes (it depends on your mixer). Stir in the chopped pecans and vanilla extract until combined.
  4. Butter two spoons (or grease them lightly with cooking spray) and, working quickly, drop rounded Tablespoonfuls of the divinity mixture onto the parchment-lined baking sheets. You may need to scrape the candy mixture off of one spoon with the other spoon, then quickly flick your wrist to create a soft curl (like soft serve) on top of the candy. It's okay if you don't get it quite right!
  5. Allow the candy to set at room temperature - maybe overnight, depending on the humidity in your home - until dry to the touch and no longer sticky. Once set and dry, you can keep it at room temperature for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
  6. NOTES: It is totally okay to take a small teaspoon-sized spoon of candy and test it on the parchment before doing the larger scoops. The divinity is ready when it holds its shape in a mound on the parchment paper. If it turns into a puddle, continue beating the mixture.

This Easy Homemade Divinity Candy is fantastic and so great for the holidays! Chewy, soft, melt-in-your-mouth candy that's a cross between nougat and fudge with vanilla and pecans. A must-make recipe! Chewy & soft, like nougat-meets-fudge, this is a must-try this holiday season!

No-Bake Eggnog Cream Pie

This No-Bake Eggnog Cream Pie is so perfect for the holidays! Creamy, smooth vanilla & nutmeg-flavored cream pie with a buttery graham cracker crust. Easy, impressive and a one of a kind dessert! For serious eggnog lovers only, this No-Bake Eggnog Cream Pie is fantastic! Creamy, smooth and loaded with eggnog flavor and spices piled high in a graham cracker crust. A must-make for the holidays!

Did everyone have a great Thanksgiving?!

We certainly did, but I am glad it’s over. Thanksgiving admittedly isn’t my favorite holiday, and while it’s nice to be with family, fielding some of their… inquisitions can be tiring 🙂 But of course, you can always avoid conversation by stuffing your face senseless with food. So there’s that.

Now we can move onto my favorite holiday: Christmas! There’s something so magical about Christmas that I just love. The music, the chilly air, the shopping (duh)… but also the flavors of Christmas. Eggnog, peppermint, gingerbread, hot cocoa… the list goes on.

And this pie is basically Christmas personified into a smooth & creamy pile of heavenly goodness.

AND! it couldn’t be easier to make. Seriously.

It starts with a package of instant French Vanilla pudding mix. If you can’t find French vanilla, then you can’t make it. KIDDING. Just use regular instant vanilla, but I like that French vanilla feels fancier. It’s like when you order a croissant, but instead of saying ‘croissant’, you say ‘cwesson’ like you’re French. Same thing pretty much.

In a bowl, you’ll whisk up your French vanilla pudding mix with eggnog in place of the milk. It’s really that easy, y’all. Whisk until it’s thick, then fold in some spices and Cool Whip, or fresh whipped cream (or creme, if you’re still fancy French) and pour that mishegas into a graham cracker crust.

This No-Bake Eggnog Cream Pie is so perfect for the holidays! Creamy, smooth vanilla & nutmeg-flavored cream pie with a buttery graham cracker crust. Easy, impressive and a one of a kind dessert! The most complicated part of this whole recipe is making sure it has plenty of time to set in the fridge. I’m talking at least four hours. I know, I know. But you can do it. I have faith.

Then serve it up with some more nog, as you do during the holidays.

Bottoms up!

  • 1 (3.4-3.9 oz) box INSTANT French Vanilla pudding mix (or regular vanilla if you cannot find French Vanilla)

  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg

  • Additional whipped cream for garnish, optional
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the instant dry pudding mix, eggnog, rum extract (if using) and nutmeg until thick, about 2 minutes. Fold in the Cool Whip or fresh whipped cream until fluffy and light. Spoon into the graham cracker pie crust and smooth out the top.
  2. Refrigerate the pie for at LEAST 4 hours, or overnight, to set.
  3. Just before serving, garnish with more whipped cream or Cool Whip and a sprinkling of nutmeg, if desired.

I love the je ne sais quoi that the fresh nutmeg adds to this recipe – it just totally ramps up that eggnog flavor and makes this pie just as authentic as the drink itself.

3-Ingredient Buttercream Frosting Fudge

This 3-Ingredient Buttercream Frosting Fudge is AWESOME! Smooth, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth DELICIOUS and tastes JUST like homemade buttercream icing! Super easy and makes great gifts!Attention all frosting fans! This Buttercream Frosting Fudge tastes just like buttercream frosting but in FUDGE form! Three-ingredients, made in minutes & so easy!

Are you a frosting person, or a vessel person?

I say ‘vessel person’ because frosting is on everything these days: cookies, cakes & cupcakes, whoopie pies, brownies…

I’m gonna be a brat right now, but why can’t we just have the vessel without frosting? Sometimes I just want a fudgy brownie with no frills. Or a sugar cookie that’s gone nudist. Or a cupcake that’s au naturel. Is that too much to ask?!

But, I know I am in the minority. Like, the minority of minorities. Because everyone loves frosting, right?!

My Mom could eat just a batch of buttercream frosting without a vessel needed – give her a spoon and the frosting and she’s happy. At kiddie birthday parties, I’d always scrape all of the frosting off of my cake and eat the plain cake, leaving that pile of sugar sludge to sit unwanted on the side until my Mom swooped in and scraped it up for herself.

So if you are like my Mom and could take an IV with a can of buttercream, you will thoroughly enjoy this Buttercream Frosting Fudge. It tastes just like buttercream frosting because it’s made with buttercream. AND! there’s only 3 ingredients, 4 if you count the sprinkles (but in my world, sprinkles don’t count as an ingredient because I put them on everything & basically carry a bottle in my purse for emergencies).

The frosting is super simple: melt a 12-ounce bag of white chocolate chips until smooth, then fold in a can of buttercream frosting – for this, I used vanilla (but of course). Fold it into the white chocolate with a splash of vanilla extract and spread the shebang into a foil-lined pan. Sprinkle the top liberally with your favorite sprinkles – I used Christmas-y ones here! – and let it chill in the fridge for a couple hours.

This 3-Ingredient Buttercream Frosting Fudge is AWESOME! Smooth, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth DELICIOUS and tastes JUST like homemade buttercream icing! Super easy and makes great gifts!Easy. As. That.

Frosting people: this one’s for you!

This Buttercream Frosting Fudge is outstanding! It tastes JUST like buttercream frosting but in chewy, melt-in-your-mouth FUDGE form!!
Ingredients
  • 1 (12 oz) bag white chocolate chips
  • 1-2 Tbsp heavy cream (may not need it)
  • 1 can (16 oz) vanilla buttercream frosting
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sprinkles, if using
Instructions
  1. Line an 8x8" square pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large microwavable bowl, melt the white chocolate chips at 15-second increments on HIGH power until melted and smooth. If the mixture starts to get really thick and pasty, add in the cream. Do not over-heat. Alternatively, using the double-boiler method, place a pot of simmering water on medium-low heat and place a glass bowl on top, taking care to ensure the bowl does not touch the water. Melt the white chocolate over the double boiler until smooth, then proceed with the recipe as stated.
  3. Fold in the vanilla extract and can of buttercream frosting until blended. Mixture will be very thick. Spread into the prepared pan, smoothing out the top. Top liberally with sprinkles.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours or until firm before cutting into squares.

Easy Bourbon Balls

Easy Bourbon Balls: bite-sized truffles packed with rich and smooth bourbon flavor, crunchy pecans, and sweet cocoa. No-Bake, simple to make and would be wonderful for Christmas or holiday gifts! Everyone’s heard of rum balls, but for a different change of flavor, try these Easy Bourbon Balls! Tender, soft & chewy truffles made with Kentucky bourbon, cocoa, pecans and crushed cookies. Simple and no-bake!

Ever since becoming a food blogger, I have realized there are so many different Christmas cookie and candy recipes.

In my family, we made those refrigerated Pillsbury cookies with the little images printed on them. Or sometimes we made peanut butter blossoms. My grandma occasionally made Pecan Snowballs. But other than that, we never had fudge, fruit-cake (are we really missing out, though?), peppermint anything, Kahlua anything, homemade toffee, divinity, etc. Nothing.

The closest we came to getting fancy candies were found in those little cardboard box of chocolates. Not even Whitman’s or See’s brand… but like, dollar store truffles. Which, if you ever wondered, are so cheap tasting that they’re basically brown-flavor.

So this whole world of homemade candies, slice & bake cookies, and festively sprinkled and flavored goodies – all brand new to me. And I am loving every second of it. Because there’s only so many times you can make peanut butter blossoms, am I right?

To be fair, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this recipe. It’s a cross between a truffle and a cookie pop since it’s made with cocoa, but also made with crushed cookies. And it is extremely bourbon-y, so if you’re sensitive to alcohol or bourbon isn’t your fave, I’d definitely avoid this recipe.

But if you get crunk on bourbon, HONEY – you gotta try these. There is no mistaking that rich, amber bourbon flavor.

Easy Bourbon Balls: bite-sized truffles packed with rich and smooth bourbon flavor, crunchy pecans, and sweet cocoa. No-Bake, simple to make and would be wonderful for Christmas or holiday gifts! Of course, rum balls tend to be more widely known during this time of year, but I thought bourbon sounded even better than rum. Bourbon seems more Christmasy, and rum seems more like I need to have booked a Caribbean vacation last week. But, if you enjoy rum instead, I’m sure it’s interchangeable here.

Can we cheers to that?!

Pumpkin Pie Lush Dessert

This Pumpkin Pie Lush Dessert is such a fantastic no-bake treat! Layers of pecan shortbread cookies, fluffy pumpkin pudding, creamy whipped topping and crunchy pecans complete this fabulous fall treat. This Pumpkin Pie Lush Dessert is marvelous! Layers of pecan shortbread cookies, fluffy pumpkin spice pudding, creamy whipped topping and chopped pecans make for a delectable, easy, no-bake dessert!

If you know me, you know I love my lush desserts!

There’s something so fabulously easy and tasty about lushes. Or lush? Is it like ‘fish’ where the singular is also the plural? Lushies? That sounds terrible. I’ll stop.

It starts with a no-bake cookie crust that’s pressed into the pan and makes for a killer first layer. Then you mix up your favorite flavor of pudding (in this recipe, we use the seasonal pumpkin pudding mix!) and spread that goodness on top. Then finish it off with whipped cream (or Cool Whip if you’re fancy like me) and additional sprinklage – in this case, chopped pecans for some crunch, but to also tie in with the pecan shortbread cookie crust.

And y’all. This lush tastes just like a pumpkin pie but better, because cookie crusts rule all the land.

With holidays coming up quick, you’ll want to bookmark this recipe for your dessert spread! This would be a fabulous no-bake alternative to pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, or any other day this fall that you are craving something fluffy, creamy, light, and ultra pumpkin-y.

Make it!!

***NOTE: Some people are having trouble finding the pumpkin instant pudding. It is seasonal, so that could be a problem. HOWEVER, you can use the following substitution: Substitute the pumpkin instant pudding for a box (3.4-3.9 oz) INSTANT vanilla pudding. Prepare with the milk and whisk in 1/2 cup – 3/4 cup pumpkin puree, depending on how pumpkin-y you want it. Also whisk in 1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice to add more pumpkin flavor. Fold in the Cool Whip and follow the rest of the instructions.***

Spiced Pomegranate Orange Iced Tea

This Spiced Pomegranate Orange Iced Tea is a fantastic reimagined tea recipe! Vibrant oranges, tart pomegranate and spicy cinnamon combine to create this bright and easy iced tea recipe! #BrightBites #ad

So I love iced tea. It’s my favorite drink ever.

My love for iced tea came from my Mom, who used to brew sun tea on our front walkway years ago when I was a kid. I remember she’d put the tea bags into the large pitcher, adorned with sunflowers, and would set it out in the sun to brew. Then she’d sweeten the amber-colored liquid with lots of sugar and I just gulped it down.

When I remember this, I remember she always used Lipton Iced Tea. Never anything else – always and only Lipton. What can I say? My Mom has good taste.

And since I grew up guzzling Lipton tea, I only use Lipton when I make iced tea at home now. Whether it’s sweet, peach, green, spiced with cinnamon sticks or regular black tea, I just love the stuff.

But sometimes I like to reimagine my tea, just like I enjoy reimagining classic desserts with fun twists. And this Spiced Pomegranate Orange Iced Tea is no exception!

Since fall is officially here, I am all about fall flavors. I was thinking about reimagining this iced tea recipe, I wanted to include cinnamon sticks and oranges, which always invoke a comforting feeling I enjoy. But I wanted to also add a little something else, which is why I chose pomegranate juice to zip it up. The pomegranate adds a nice tartness to the tea and it tastes so fabulous with the spiced orange flavors.

Together, the combination of zesty oranges, bright pomegranate and comforting cinnamon with Lipton’s black tea is officially my new favorite. It’s sweet, spicy and vibrant, but still has that classic iced tea flavor I’ve loved ever since I was a kiddo.

When my Mom came home after work and saw I’d made a pitcher of this tea mash-up, she was so stoked. I poured us each a glass and we sat and sipped it together on the couch while discussing our day. It was so nice to just be together and feel connected with each other over this long-standing tradition of our love for iced tea. We then brought our conversation to the dinner table when my Dad and sister came home which was so awesome because sometimes we get too busy to eat around the table. (Which, okay, is partially my fault because the kitchen table is usually my catch-all for chocolate chips and other sweet ingredients for my cookbook. Sorry Mom).

It’s such a cinch to make, too. Simply brew the Lipton Cold Brew Iced Tea into a large pitcher with some water. Let it set and steep and get all golden and marvelous. Once it’s steeped, pour in some pomegranate and orange juices to really give it that zip. Lastly, drop in some orange slices, pomegranate arils and cinnamon sticks, which give this iced tea a spicy twist. Easy-peasy and oh so good.

Ghostly Chocolate Greek Yogurt Parfaits are creamy, smooth and bursting with chocolate & strawberry Greek-style yogurt flavors! Kids and adults alike will delight in these spooky parfaits! #ad These Ghostly Chocolate Greek-Style Yogurt Parfaits are so fun for the upcoming Halloween holiday! Made simple with The Greek Gods Chocolate Strawberry Greek-Style Yogurt and a few creative twists to make a scary-good parfait!

Halloween – one of my favorite holidays! In the olden days, I was so excited to dress up that I’d actually wear my costume to school. I remember scarfing down dinner in anticipation for trick-or-treating and getting all that glorious candy.

Now that I’m older, I love seeing the different costumes as they come to the front door. Conversely, I also love having the night off to enjoy the candy myself as I curl up with a scary movie. Either way, there’s candy and I’m happy.

Despite the fact that I don’t have kids (well, I do, but they have four or fewer legs and no opposable thumbs), I don’t really have anyone to decorate with or make cute Halloween crafts for. But, I know a lot of people who read this blog do, so this Halloween treat is perfect for you and your children!

These Ghostly Chocolate Greek-Style Yogurt Parfaits are so delicious and so simple, it’s scary J The parfaits are made with – you guessed it – Greek-style yogurt, but not any kind. It’s made with The Greek Gods Chocolate Strawberry Greek-Style Yogurt which is INCREDIBLE. It tastes just like chocolate-covered strawberries and has that same Greek-style yogurt texture we know and love.

In general, The Greek Gods’ Greek-Style Yogurt is ultra creamy and rich, and the addition of chocolate adds such a delicious indulgence. It’s packed with all the good stuff you look for, too, like live & active cultures and made without rBST and rGBH hormones. And it’s gluten-free and an excellent source of calcium. The best part, though? The FLAVOR. While it’s the star in this recipe, it would be equally fantastic in smoothies, cakes & cupcakes, even banana bread. (Hey, that’s actually a great idea…)

Ghostly Chocolate Greek Yogurt Parfaits are creamy, smooth and bursting with chocolate & strawberry Greek-style yogurt flavors! Kids and adults alike will delight in these spooky parfaits! #ad So to make these spooktacular parfaits, simply fold an entire container of Chocolate Strawberry Greek-Style Yogurt into some fresh whipped cream until it’s all combined. This adds wonderful texture and makes the yogurt even more light & fluffy.

Spoon the Greek-style yogurt into parfait glasses and top with crushed chocolate cookie “dirt” and optional (but extra scary!) bone shaped sprinkles. The final touch? A chocolate-covered strawberry ghost which adds a ghoulish touch.

Whether you still dress up for Halloween or not, these parfaits are perfect for any age and are a great way to kick off this terrifyingly fun holiday!Ghostly Chocolate Greek Yogurt Parfaits are creamy, smooth and bursting with chocolate & strawberry Greek-style yogurt flavors!

These Ghostly Chocolate Greek Yogurt Parfaits are awesome! Spooky, EASY and super delicious!
Ingredients
  • 1 (24 oz) container The Greek Gods Chocolate Strawberry Greek-Style Yogurt
  • 2 cups of freshly whipped cream
  • 1 pkg chocolate sandwich cookies, coarsely crushed
  • 1 pkg vanilla almond bark
  • 1 pint strawberries, rinsed and patted dry
  • Eyeball sprinkles
  • Chocolate chips
  • Bone sprinkles, optional
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add the Greek-style yogurt and the whipped cream. Using a rubber spatula, fold the mixture together until combined. Refrigerate while preparing the rest of the parfaits.
  2. Melt the vanilla almond bark according to package directions, or until smooth and melted. Dip the strawberries, one at a time, into the almond bark mixture and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Working quickly, adhere two eyes using the eyeball sprinkles and a round chocolate chip mouth. Repeat with remaining strawberries. Allow the strawberries to set, about 5 minutes.
  3. To assemble, fill a parfait glass with 1 cup of the Greek-style yogurt mixture. Top with ½ cup of crushed cookies. Sprinkle with bone sprinkles, if using, and garnish with one or two strawberry ghosts. Serve immediately, or store leftover fluff covered in the fridge. Would also make an excellent fruit dip!

White Chocolate Velvet Pie

No Bake White Chocolate Velvet Pie: a creamy, silky-smooth no-bake pie that's packed with white chocolate. So easy, impressive and utterly delicious! This White Chocolate Velvet Pie is so silky-smooth, creamy and utterly white chocolaty! Perfect for any white chocolate lover.

So, confession: this isn’t my recipe.

It’s actually my friend Joan’s recipe, from her site, Chocolate, Chocolate & More.

Joan was a dear friend of mine in real life and in this crazy big, crazy weird world of blogging. She lit up every room she walked into. I know that’s totally cliche and like, everyone says that about their friend/mom/dog, but Joan truly was a beaming light with an effervescence about her that was so intoxicating and charming.

She had an infectious Southern accent and attitude about her that was so appealing to Miss California over here. She was as sweet as sugar and would make you feel your very best whenever you were around her, but if you done goofed, she’d be the first to call you out on it but from more of a, “I know you did this – what were you thinking?” good-natured place rather than a judgey place.

She was quick-witted, sharp-tongued and laser-focused on her blog, her business, her brand, and most importantly, her three kids, whom she just adored. Every time I was around her, she’d beam whenever she spoke of them, so proud to be their mom and champion in life.

She was a mogul when it came to her business. She had over 1 million Facebook fans and counting and was never stingy or shy about her practices, her successes, her failures… hell, she was like, the least shy person in the world. If you asked her a straight-forward question about anything: personal life, business tactics, you name it – she’d give you a no-bullshit answer. She was real, she was tough, but that’s why her business was such a screaming success – because people connected with that authenticity of the person behind the blog. People felt like they knew Joan, even if they’d only ever seen her Facebook page avatar. She had the uncanny ability to make anyone feel welcome, even if she barely knew your name.

She was 49 when she died suddenly last year of a heart attack, and would have celebrated her 50th birthday this Saturday, September 24.

I’ve kept this inside for so long – almost a year now, in October – and finally I feel like I can say it. I was mad at her before and when she died. Very mad, and confused, and saddened. And looking back now, it was so trivial, but at the time, it really upset me.

What happened was, we had attended the IFBC Food Conference in Seattle last September. She knew I was coming as we’d talked about it and she and I had even planned to do a chocolate-tasting tour through Seattle with some other blogger friends before one of the sessions started. I was so excited to see her, as I hadn’t seen her since that April.

The next night after our chocolate tour, a blogger asked me if I was going to a brand dinner that night – one Joan had orchestrated. Confused, I said no – I wasn’t invited. The blogger also looked confused and a little awkward, like oh shit, what did I just say? And I felt the same way, like oh shit, why was I not invited to this?

Turns out, almost every blogger Joan was friends with went to this dinner… except me. I was not invited. I was not invited. I repeated that phrase throughout my head the entire night as I ate dinner alone. At first, I was fuming mad – what the hell had I done to her? And then I was confused – what had happened to cause her to overlook me? I mean, I’m not exactly the shy imp in the corner – I’m easily memorable – right? And then annoyed – fine, they can all have their fun without me. It’s whatever. Seeing the photos of all my blogger friends laughing and smiling and having a helluva time at dinner – at a dinner Joan didn’t invite me to – made it even worse.

Later that night, I saw Joan and some blogger friends (ones who actually were invited to dinner, I bitterly thought to myself) in the hotel lobby. They were laughing and drinking wine and called me over. I protested and said I wanted to go to bed – it was maybe 8 or 9pm. Joan chuckled and said, “come hang out with us!” But I was too angry at her to want to hang out. Oh, now you want to hang out with me?, I thought. I went to my room that night and cried.

Joan would die not a month later.

I remember Dorothy texting me and asking me if I knew what had happened to Joan. I said I didn’t, and when she told me, I was shocked. The air literally left my lungs and I was stunned into silence. I got that weird ball of emotions stuck in the back of my throat – the one that feels like you’re regurgitating a ball of yarn. I couldn’t believe it. She was literally here one day and gone the next. How could this happen?

Unbeknownst to me, other bloggers were planning on posting a recipe dedicated to #ChocolateForJoan the week after she died. I wasn’t invited until about a day before it was set to post. I didn’t have time to post that next day.

I feverishly rushed to the store to get ingredients for my post while everyone else shared their stories of Joan and each other’s recipes on their blogs. I was making my recipe when people were mourning together. I felt so alone while everyone found solace in each other during this confusing time. Especially since I was still dealing with unresolved feelings from a month prior, feelings, I felt, that no one would understand.

My mom had told me to reach out to Joan – “maybe it was an oversight? Or maybe she only could invite a number of people? Or maybe she did forget – we’re human,” she said. “Reach out to her and let her know that it hurt your feelings and to see if you two are okay.”

I never sent that email, because Joan died before I could compose my thoughts and write it.

Were we okay? Was the last memory she had of me the one where I stormed off to my room at the hotel? Were the last feelings she felt when she thought of me tension and annoyance?

The thoughts troubled me for a long time. They only recently faded away when I became so preoccupied with my own life: writing my cookbook in 2 months, managing my blog, becoming a “new mom” to a new dog and a mom to Mannie, everything else. Until recently, when a blogger mentioned we all make one of Joan’s recipes for a post this week in tribute of her birthday. Until I realized it’s been almost a year since Joan died, almost a year since I felt these same feelings of shame, confusion, misunderstanding, disappointment… in myself. It’s a pretty big pill to swallow, but one I have to. One I have to because life goes on and I cannot remain stuck in the past, and one I have to because Joan would want me to.

It only made me realize now that she would want me to move on. Joan didn’t dwell, and she didn’t do dwelling with others. She was a, “fuck that and let’s go eat chocolate” kinda person. And now I am going to pull myself up and swallow that pill and know that for whatever reason, things happened. I don’t know why she didn’t invite me to that dinner and I don’t care. What she did know – because I told her many times before – was that I found her to be an amazing, resilient, compassionate, whip-smart inspiration of a woman and someone I looked up to. And I know now that if I had written that email to her, she would have apologized and suggested we move on because she loved me and always would and everything would be right again.

So Joan, I am so sorry. I’m sorry I was mad at you, I’m sorry I doubted our friendship for one second. I’m sorry that I chose to pout and cry alone rather than accept your invite to hang out. I’m sorry I allowed there to be a thick fog of tension in our friendship, and I’m sorry I didn’t say sorry sooner.

So here we are, present day. I know Joan would be thrilled that her friends were making her recipes. And I was thrilled to make it. After all, this recipe came from a dessert genius and a woman who knew her chocolate, so anything less than perfect wouldn’t have made the cut.

No Bake White Chocolate Velvet Pie: a creamy, silky-smooth no-bake pie that's packed with white chocolate. So easy, impressive and utterly delicious! This White Chocolate Velvet Pie is now one of my favorites; One, because I love white chocolate-anything, and two, because it’s so easy to make, and it makes me happy knowing that Joan concocted it in her crazy-wonderful brain. Also, it’s no-bake, which is always a winner in my book.

Joan, thanks for the memories, recipes, and laughter. You’re sorely missed.

Ruffles Krispy Treats

Ruffles Krispy Treats - sweet, salty, crunchy, gooey and a fun twist on a classic dessert! Such a quick and easy recipe! Sweet and salty lovers, rejoice! These Ruffles Krispy Treats are AWESOME. Made with salty, crunchy Ruffles potato chips instead of the classic cereal, they’re gooey, crunchy, sweet and salty… and totally perfect!

So I had planned to have a really relaxing Labor Day Weekend. Instead, I had a laborious Labor Day Weekend.

I didn’t hit up any hot sales at the mall. I didn’t lounge by the pool with a fruity drink. There were no mini beverage umbrellas. There was no lake/beach/river day. It was all WORK.

If I wasn’t baking, I was photographing. And if I wasn’t photographing, I was trying to organize my prop room unsuccessfully. I finally caved and bought those steel 5-tier bakers racks to assemble and use to organize all my props. You know you’ve made it big when…

So now my prop room is all pretty and organized which feels awesome. My back and knees, however, do not feel awesome. And if you’ll excuse me, I have a much-needed massage booked today. I’ll let myself out, thanks.

But before I go, I wanted to make sure you guys knew about these Ruffles Krispy Treats. They’re kinda sorta my new favorite thing ever.

If you know me, you know I love sweet and salty combined. Chicago-style popcorn is my jam. Salted caramel is my homeboy. And thus, these krispy treats are now my newest BFF.

I started thinking that you don’t have to make krispy treats with the cereal. I mean, you could, but why would you want to be a rule-follower when you could be a rebel? (See what I did there? Sorry).

So I did exactly that and made classic krispy treats with Ruffles potato chips, because I’m rebellious like that. The result is a crunchy, crispy, gooey, sticky, sweet & salty fabulousness that can only be described as me screaming “MAKE THEM NOW” (or was it ‘take them now?’) with a mouthful of them.

Be a rebel!

These Ruffles Krispy Treats are SO delicious! Sweet, salty, gooey, crunchy and totally fabulous! A fun twist on the classic krispy square!
Ingredients
  • 1 family-size (13.5 oz) bag of Ruffles potato chips
  • 10 cups miniature marshmallows (1 bag, plus 2 additional cups)
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Line a 13x9" baking pan with foil, extending the sides of the foil over the edges of the pan. Spray the foil with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, crush the potato chips in bite-sized pieces. Just make sure they aren't teeny finely ground crumbs, but no huge pieces of chips either. If anything, err on the smaller size. Toss in 2 cups of the miniature marshmallows. Set aside.
  3. In a large sauce pot, melt together the butter and remaining 8 cups of the marshmallows, stirring until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla. Pour the mixture over the crushed chips. Toss to coat until moistened, and working quickly, pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Grease the bottom of a glass cup and gently compact it into the prepared pan.
  4. Let set for about 1 hour at room temperature. Store leftovers airtight at room temperature.
