Super Easy Baileys Fudge

I designed this recipe from scratch based on my other easy fudge recipes and a challenge from my friend Helen.

Day 19: Holiday Marshmallow Sticks

J is a very big fan of marshmallows, so I thought I would make this little treat for him.

This is such a great last minute … Continue reading Day 19: Holiday Marshmallow Sticks

Day 7: Sour Cream Glazed Doughnuts

Old fashioned sour cream doughnuts and timbits from Tim Hortons are my favourite kind of doughnuts, and not something I get to have very often over here in Scotland.

Mint Aero Traybake

I absolutely love the mint aero traybakes from Mimi's Bakery in Edinburgh. They are heaven in mint chocolate form.

Salted Caramel Sauce

I found this recipe while looking up salted caramel apple bites, which you can read about here. The results is a really amazing and delicious salted caramel sauce. The only downside I have found is that is seems to set at room temperture and it no longer has pouring consistency, so you need to warm … Continue reading Salted Caramel Sauce

I really like making rice krispie treats, but I haven't made them in ages! I kept seeing pictures of these pumpkin and Frankenstein ones on pinterest and thought I would try them.
