Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cups


Up next for 12 Days of Treats are these Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cups! Yep, just like a peanut butter cup but filled with the most dreamy peppermint cream.

Coming in hot for the 12 Days of Sweet Treats are these Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies! Not everything needs to be peppermint and holiday spice this season, does it?

So there’s that. Let’s just get this out of the way first: Yes, yes indeed you can make this cake without alcohol. I’ll tell you how…

Chocolate Pomegranate Holiday Parfaits


Hey friends! We’re in full holiday mode right now…are you feeling it? I try to simplify everything this time of year because I’ve found I have a tendency to overdo and say yes to everything.

Rustic Cranberry Apple Hand Pies Recipe by Rebecca Firth | DisplacedHousewife

Rustic Cranberry Apple Hand Pies


Prepare yourself. This recipe is a no-self-control recipe. The kind where I had two cranberry apple hand pies before noon and had to talk myself off the ledge about eating another before dinner.

Pumpkin Layer Cake With Maple Pecan Clusters


I had a hankering for a really delicious pumpkin layer cake. I reached for the brown sugar. Nope, we need something more. We need jazz hands. I reached back in and grabbed the muscovado. Yes.

Irish Coffee Cake


Is it a cake that tastes like Irish coffee or is it a coffee cake with Irish coffee vibes? Or are they the same thing? I think they’re different but this seems like more of an in-person conversation for us to have…perhaps over Irish coffee and cake? Today we’re scenting a traditional coffee cake with all of our favorite flavors: fresh-brewed espresso (or coffee),…
