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!

And I looooove how versatile pound cake is. It’s the perfect cake companion to so many different and wonderful flavors. One of my favorite flavor combinations is this...

Rich, Decadent, Deeply Chocolate with Peanut Butter filling and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache! Wow……….Wow…………..Wow! Oh, and did I mention, that the brownies themselves are dark chocolate and perfectly fudgy! Recipe Notes: For some reason, unlike Semisweet Chocolate chips which come in 12 ounce bags, Dark Chocolate Chips come in 10 ounce bags. Isn’t that strange? It seems like they’d come in the same size bags, doesn’t it? Anyway, I mention this because when you’re shopping for the items to...
