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.

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!

These flaky, melt-in-your-mouth Nutella Raspberry Rugelach are almost too easy to eat - they'll disappear before your eyes! They also keep incredibly well in the freezer. Today marks the second day of Hanukkah (Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish readers!!), and I don’t know about you guys, but my favorite part of Hanukkah is the food.

Let’s be honest, food is my favorite part of a lot of holidays, but on Hanukkah, I can’t resist tearing into the challah, devouring my grandma’s chicken and brisket, and eating way too many rugelach. If you’re not familiar with rugelach, let me explain. [Read more…]

This Peppermint Skillet Brownie, loaded with chocolate, peppermint chips, and Candy Cane Kisses, is the perfect decadent treat to share with friends this winter! Best served warm with ice cream. The skillet returns once again! After the wild success of my first dessert in a skillet (See: Salted Caramel Filled Dark Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookies), I had to do another version. A brownie version, full of fudgy chocolate, that would taste amazing warm covered in ice cream and hot fudge.

Oh yeah. This peppermint skillet brownie succeeded with flying colors. To make it all more fun and seasonal, I threw in some Andes peppermint chips and some chopped up Candy Cane Kisses. Getting a spoonful of gooey brownie with a giant chunk of melted Candy Cane Kiss was absolute decadent dessert bliss. [Read more…]

These Peppermint White Chocolate Pretzel Bars have a salty-sweet pretzel crust, a sugar cookie-style bar that's loaded with peppermint and white chocolate, all topped with melted white chocolate and more peppermint! Fa la la, it’s holiday time! Which in my baking-centric head, means bring on the peppermint, gingerbread, and too many cookies for anyone to reasonably eat.

…seriously though, how did we get here already?! It’s almost CHRISTMAS! And HANNUKAH! I’m a lucky kid who grew up celebrating both, one with each side of the family. I have amazing, special traditions I associate with each, and one of the things I love most about this time of year is getting to spend time with my family. [Read more…]

When most people think of biscotti, those rock hard, often-overlooked cookies that sit on coffee shop counter tops are what most often come to mind. For most of my life, I didn’t know that biscotti could be waaay more delicious than that.

Then I tried making them myself. The result? A beautiful cookie that’s soft and toothsome, with still a little bit of that crunchy bite around the edges.

I first made biscotti way back in the day when I was hired to made dessert goodie bags for a corporate Christmas party – 100 goodie bags meant a whole lot of biscotti coming out of my kitchen! Each bag had 2 biscotti in it, so I spent quite a bit of time making biscotti that year, and since then, I haven’t bought a biscotti since. Those store-bought cookies just don’t compare to making this Italian classic yourself, especially when it’s so easy (no mixer necessary!) and they stay good for a while, thanks to the oil.

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…]
