These Chocolate Peanut Butter Footballs are not for throwing. Unless, of course, you’re talking about tossing a few in your mouth. And while it may be hard to get the perfect spiral with them, you will score big points with any football loving crowd.
Once again the holidays flew by without getting around to everything on my baking list. So, over the past couple of weeks, the baking bug has hit and I’ve done a little catching up on making a few old favorites as well as trying some new treats too. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls are certainly an old favorite. I know I’m not alone when I say that. Chocolate and peanut butter is a combination that’s hard to beat, don’t you think?
There are two things that I have to hide from my husband if I plan on using it in a recipe: dark chocolate, and nuts of any sort. It’s like he has a radar or something. A bag of almonds can disappear in no time, man. So you can only imagine when…
I was short on time and thought of the Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows from an earlier post that would be perfectly pretty in pink, and a super easy sweet treat that can be jazzed up using a combination of sprinkles, nonpareils, and/or royal icing. They really are a cute way to add a little pizzazz to a plain marshmallows.
One of my favorite treats of all time has to be a Chocolate Caramel Apple. I’ve never much cared for a candy apple, and a caramel apple, while certainly a delicious combination, has always been a little to messy for my liking. But dip a caramel apple in chocolate and something magical happens. I don’t know what it is, but it’s magic, man. The chocolate seals the gooey caramel in and combines with an excellent crunchy apple to create flavor perfection in my book.
Taking the party outside around a bonfire works well, but the weather doesn’t always cooperate, does it? For those times, I decided to try an alternative and make s’mores in the oven. It certainly doesn’t measure up to sitting around a cozy bonfire, roasting marshmallows, watching sparks swirl from the flames. But it’s a close second, and pretty simple too.
Here’s an old-time favorite that my mom used to make every Thanksgiving and Christmas when I was younger, but I think fall is perfect for this special treat, appropriately called Haystacks. They scream fall pumpkin picking, and tailgating time to me, don’t cha think? With a mere three ingredients these are prepped in no time for the best tasting haystack I’ve ever had.
These truffles were an answer to a recipe challenge using PAMA liqueur, a pomegranate liqueur. PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur is a liqueur made with all-natural pomegranate juice. It’s perky. And tangy. And full of flavor. The obvious pairing was with chocolate as PAMA reminds me a little of raspberries. Many other recipe ideas to use with PAMA are still churning away in my mind. Maybe later.
