This Easy Rocky Road Fudge is rich, creamy, and comes together in less than 10 minutes with just 5 ingredients! One of my favorite things about baking is being able to give my baked goods away. Giving people desserts and treats that I create is how I show appreciation, and how I show people I care about them. I say thank you with a batch a cookies, get well soon with a batch of brownies, and constantly make treats just for the ones that I love. As a relatively introverted person in my day to day life, baking is how I connect with people.

It’s something I can get excited about, and it’s something I can talk to people about, and best of all, it’s something that I can share. And during the holidays? I totally have an excuse to make an obscene amount of cookies and candies and baked goods galore, package them up in cute little boxes with bows and ribbons, and send them off to the people who have helped me this year, the people I’m grateful for, and the friends that I care about.

This Easy Rocky Road Fudge is rich, creamy, and comes together in less than 10 minutes with just 5 ingredients! Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen this picture of my holiday cookie boxes coming together, surrounded by all their delicious components. The boxes were filled with mini puff pastry palmiers, big soft ginger cookies filled with cookie butter, sprinkled shortbread cookies, magic cookie bars, browned butter shortbread with salted dark chocolate, graham cracker toffee, brownies with peppermint chips, and this delicious, super easy rocky road fudge.

Now, let’s talk about this fudge for a second. It has 5 ingredients, and takes about 5 minutes to put together. That’s it. Then you stick it in the fridge to let it set up, cut, and serve to your friends. Let them think it took you a while, standing over the stove with a candy thermometer. It’ll be our little secret.

The key is a can of sweetened condensed milk. It sweetens things up, and gives just the right amount of creaminess. Paired with butter and chocolate chips, and you’re in business for a rich, creamy, tastes-too-good-to-be-true fudge.

When you fold in marshmallows and Planters Cocoa Almonds, things get even more irresistibly delicious. The Cocoa Almonds on their own are absolutely addictive, and add the most irresistible crunch to this fudge. I found the Cocoa Almonds on the limited edition Planters sleigh display at Walmart (see the picture below!) – they also had flavors like Brittle Nut Medley, Holiday Nut Crunch, and nut mixtures in super cute nut tins. They’d be perfect for gifting along with your baked goods this year. You can also find tons of fun recipes, coupons, and more on Walmart’s Cooking Up Good site.

The marshmallows gives the fudge more volume, adds that nice chewy, fluffy texture we all love from marshmallows. I love the way the sweetness of them tastes with the rich, dark chocolate and crunchy almonds. This batch also makes a ton of fudge – 64 pieces – which makes it perfect for gifting!

One batch of this can be doled out to tons of different people if you’re gifting with some other treats, or it can make the perfect last mint gift to give out to a few people. Best part – it’s so easy, so quick, and so incredibly delicious! This is sure to be a favorite. Enjoy, and happy holidays!

This Chunky Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Granola uses a secret ingredient to keep in chunky, and is the perfect guilt-free DIY holiday gift! We’re taking a quick break from holiday cookies for a healthier, yet still totally giftable treat: chunky chocolate cranberry pecan granola! Phew, long title, but it still doesn’t describe everything I want you to know about this granola. We’ll get into that.

For a long time, variations on this coconut macadamia nut granola and this coconut pecan granola were my go-to granola recipes. But, then I fell in love with dried cranberries and started wanting to cover everything in chocolate, so I tweaked things to create this new favorite, and discovered a new fun trick for making granola extra crunchy and clustery: egg whites.

Paleo Pecan Pie | A healthier, grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free alternative to traditional pecan pie. This is the BEST Paleo pie crust I've ever tried! Recipe from Bakerita.com Phew, just barely sneaking in one last Thanksgiving recipe before the big day. This is a good one though, so listen up: I took a super guilty, sugar-free favorite and I made it way more guilt free. This pie proves that pecan pie sooooo does not need corn syrup to be good (in fact…it’s way better without that nasty stuff).

Pecan pie is a favorite of mine, and has been ever since this recipe entered my life. It’s full of browned butter and brown sugar and tons of pecans. That recipe is absolutely delicious, and is what this one is based off of. However, that one, though corn-syrupless as well, is still full of sugar and definitely a sinful treat. [Read more…]

This gluten-free and vegan dessert is healthy enough to double as breakfast! | #recipe from Bakerita.com Apples are, no doubt, one of my favorite ingredients to use (clearly – take a look at all my apple recipes!) and definitely one of my favorite things to eat. And eat a lot of them I do! There’s days where apples slathered with a little almond butter replaces meals. It’s the perfect treat, fills me right up, and they’re so delicious.

I cannot get enough of the giant Honeycrisp apples they sell at the grocery store near me, and that’s what I used in this recipe! Honeycrisp’s are my favorite, and I love the slightly tart edge they have. The flavor tasted so succulent with the aromatic spices. Use your favorite apple here though – any kind will be amazing.

Apple Cider Caramels

Apple Cider Caramel | made with delicious fresh cider for a burst of fall flavors in your mouth! Recipe from bakerita.com There’s something incredibly satisfying about making your own candy.
