Glamour Peeps 2.0

Easter is right around the corner which means it's time to make the Peeps!  That's right, Glamour Peeps are back, in all their sparkle glory.  These little peeps are my favorite makeover to date, and I couldn't wait to make them again.  So grab your candy thermometer and disco dust cause it's time to make some candy!

Cadbury Mini Egg Cheesecake Bars

Spring has officially sprung!  The weather is gorgeous, iced coffee is in full effect, and all of a sudden we can't go out to dinner anywhere that doesn't offer outdoor seating!  I feel like this all happened really quickly, I didn't even start Spring cleaning yet.  By Spring cleaning, you should know I mean cleaning out the shoe collection to make room for new ones ;)  Anyway, this burst of summer weather is definitely welcome.  I may not be getting much done, but I sure am enjoying it.  One thing I did get done this week are these Cadbury mini egg cheesecake bars.  My favorite Easter candy combined with cheesecake is a very good way to welcome Spring!

Irish Candy Bar Cupcakes

When I first decided to do this Saint Patrick's Day series, the one product I knew I wanted to include was the Crunchie candy bar.  This Irish candy was one of my favorite childhood treats, and I couldn't wait to create a grown up dessert with it.  I picked up a few last week along with some Flake bars, another favorite of mine, and got to work.  What I came up with is a new cupcake that takes these candy bars to a whole new level.

Irish Coffee Scones with Whiskey Butter

Let's talk about scones today guys.  In the past I haven't been very enthusiastic about scones.  I've had some that were good, but they've always been a take it or leave it kind of thing for me.  Normally I would look right past a scone and go for some cake, but that all changed last weekend when I made these little gems.  I have made five batches since then, I think that says something!

Magners Brown Butter Blondies

I think the name of these blondies says it all.  As soon as I see the words brown butter, I know I'm getting into something good.  When that brown butter is in blondies, it gets even better.  When you add Magners Irish Cider to those blondies, the only thing you'll ask yourself is why didn't I try this sooner?!

Baileys Irish Cream Cookies

Happy Friday friends!  I've been doing some major recipe testing all week, and I've got some sweet treats lined up for you in my Saint Patrick's Day series!  Growing up in a very traditional Irish family, and spending about sixteen years competing in Irish step dancing, let's just say Saint Patrick's Day is big in my family.  I'm really looking forward to sharing this series with you where I'll be incorporating products we are all familiar with, and introducing some that might be new to you.  Today I'm kicking off the series with these Baileys Irish Cream cookies.  In one word these cookies are boozylicious, and I don't know about you, but I like the sound of that!
