The only thing better than putting a holiday spin on a well-loved recipe, is when it also gives back to those not quite as fortunate. Especially during the holidays! We’ve teamed up with Seattle Chocolates (who’s donating a serving of food to someone in need for every chocolate bar sold!) to put our spin on the classic s’mores with this Christmas cookie s’mores recipe that is SO GOOD. Not that anything covered in melted Christmas cookie chocolate could be bad, but you know.
I also got a little frisky with my truffle bar choices and tried out a hot buttered rum s’more, too, but I’ll ease you into this sugary delight gently…

It was only a matter of time before I whipped up another one of my infamous (especially after these) ice cream shot recipes, and this time we’re really getting creative on you! We’ve teamed up with Kathleen, the lovely lady behind Honeychild’s Sweet Creams (who I met here locally in Houston am became instantly obsessed with!), to bring you both an original recipe for her homemade toasted marshmallow ice cream AND my twist on it to become a toasted marshmallow ice cream shot. Is that not a match made in heaven or what?!
I also feel the need to express just how good her ice cream recipe is for the season, even if you’re just looking to spice up your scoop of ice cream for holiday pies. It has actual toasted marshmallows IN IT. It’s just a dream, I’m telling you..
Like most people, one of my favorite things about the holiday season is all of the food. In particular, I,Alyssa, am a sucker for a good dessert! The problem is, by the time dessert rolls around, I’ve usually stuffed myself silly and I’m struggling to find room for the 5 varieties of treats ahead of me. Luckily these cheesecake stuffed apples slightly rectify the situation by combining two favorite desserts (cheesecake and baked apples) into one.
I say ‘slightly’ because they’re so good you’ll want to eat more than one, which consequently means you’re stuck in the same dilemma of trying to find enough room. But then again, when dessert is concerned, who doesn’t have enough room?!..
