Candy Cane Fantasy Cupcakes

Don’t just leave a peppermint stick for ol’ St. Nick this holiday season, leave him a cupcake filled with peppermints from top to bottom! These Candy Cane Fantasy Cupcakes are a show-stopping homemade gift or a guaranteed hit at holiday bake sales. People love it when those pumpkin spice lattes start showing up, lining up outside Starbucks like they’re selling Star Wars tickets. My favorite holiday barista’s treat won’t show up until a few weeks later, though: the peppermint mocha (white chocolate if I’m feeling naughty). When I reach across the counter to grab my warm, festive cup, I...

Believe it or not, they actually don’t just come in cans suspended in gelatin, and...

Oreo Cheesecake

The simple perfection of a classic Oreo cookie combines with the rich decadence of a cheesecake to make this show-stopping dessert. My Oreo Cookie Cheesecake is guaranteed to bring back fond childhood memories of milk and cookies even though you’re going to need a fork this time! Few snack foods fill me with nostalgia like Oreo cookies. I enjoyed them as a little girl and then later shared them with my own children. What’s not to love about that signature sweet “stuff” sandwiched between two crispy chocolate cookies? I’d argue that the act of eating them is even a...
