Football Cake Pops!

I burnt the stadium.  Yep, that's right, I had big plans to show you my beautiful stadium cake all decked out for the super bowl.  But instead, I'm showing you football cake pops.  After a person burns a stadium, there is just not a lot of energy or desire to remake the cake. 
 
I barely wanted to make cake pops.  But I'm not a quitter... I wanted to win you over with something before game day.  After eating the salvageable scraps from the stadium, I was full and happy again.  So then I begin making the cake pops.

DIY Candy Bars

I love my new candy mold...let me tell you just how much I love that mold.  When I went to put it with all my other Valentine molds, I already had one and I have no recollection of buying it.  That's not good, right?  After I made the candy, I decided to wrap it up for giving, or honestly, just to keep me from eating it.  You'll notice I wrap everything...
 
Anyway, while wrapping the candy bars, I saw a vision for a football candy bar.  Only I couldn't wrap a valentine bar with a football wrapper, right?   So I made the Valentine candy bar with the mold and wrapped a Hershey bar for the Super Bowl.

Chocolate Filled Gingerbread Hearts!

Well, it's snowing again and my house smells like gingerbread.  No it's not Christmas, but it sure smells like it.  Last year I made the executive decision...gingerbread is not just for Christmas.
 
Because I love the combination of chocolate and gingerbread (well I pretty much love the combination of chocolate with anything) I decided to make a few gingerbread shaped hearts filled with a red chocolate center.

Little Debbie Valentines

Today I'm making Little Debbie Valentines, not valentines for Little Debbie, but valentines using Little Debbie cakes!  When I'm at the grocery, I try and stay away from the cookie isle, but these were on an end cap, caught my eye and I had to have them.  Because who can resist a heart shaped Little Debbie?
 
Really, they're cute enough left alone, but I'm going to show you three ways you can dress up the little chocolate cakes.  Just when I thought I was done dressing up Little Debbie, my husband brings home the red velvet Little Debbie Cakes and this happened.  They turned out to be my favorite.

Conversation Heart OREO'S!

Today I'm keeping it simple.  If you can melt chocolate, you can make these Conversation Heart Oreo's.  How's that for simple?

50 Yard Line Brownies!

EEK!  It's Friday and almost time for another day of football.  I've been wanting to make these brownies since before the first kick off of the season.  Looks like I've waited until the two minute warning, but I think I pulled it off.
 
Do you notice anything different about these 50 Yard Lines?  Take a closer look.

Football Party Mix!

It's almost time for another day of football.  Don't get me wrong, I'll sit and watch football all day long if I can snack on this football party mix.  Okay, that was a lie, I'll sit and watch a little football and eat a lot of the party mix.

Hand Knit Cookies!

Christmas is over, but the cookies keep coming.

What's the weather like in your neck of the woods?  Here, it's sweater weather and will be for quite some time.  In fact, more snow is coming my way, which makes the perfect time to do a little knitting...as in knitting buttercream cookies. 
 
Although I really thought by now I would know how to knit, like something to wear, not to eat, it hasn't happened.  Oh well, I must be hungrier than I am cold.

Golden Birthday Party!

Have you heard of a Golden Birthday?  Well, up until the last few years, I had never heard of it and I have to tell you, I missed my Golden Birthday.  Actually I have a better chance of celebrating my Golden Years than my Golden Birthday!
 
Anyway, everyone has a GOLDEN Birthday, my golden birthday would have been when I turned fifteen on the fifteenth.  However, this party was GOLDEN for Natalie, the sweet birthday girl celebrating her ninth birthday on the ninth of January.  What fun, right?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Roses!

I'm thinking by now the "don't eat sweets" resolution has worn off and you're ready for a bite of chocolate.  I want your first bite to be so delicious you're happy you blew your resolution.
 
One of my favorite chocolate combinations is with peanut butter and I loved the recipe I used for the Chocolate Owls I made last fall.  It's a new year and now it's a new shape, roses for Valentine's Day!
