Reeses-Frankenstein-Cupcakes

How perfect are these for Halloween. Just when you think all of the creative ideas are taken in walks Frankenstein.  The chocolate chips are actually supposed to be Frankenstein’s bolts but they start to get confusing with his eyes.  Try them with and without the bolts.  HINT – They taste the same.  The other tricky part of these cupcakes are the eyes.  In the recipe they use white chocolate melted down topped with M&M’s.  I cheated.  I always have some Wilton candy Eyeballs around he house.  They are edible and take 2 seconds to pop on.  Melting down the chocolate was just a little too much for me.

These are as scarey as they are tasty.  Hit the recipe button and BAKE!!

Did you miss me? I actually missed myself! I figured I would take a few weeks off the blog and it ended up being nearly a month. However being listed on the Top 100 Food Blogs has re-inspired me to keep going. Not to mention having all my recipes all in one place. This is as much for me as it is for you.

Which brings me to this little gem. Chocolate Mint Grasshopper Cupcakes!

This is part of the Girls Scout Series however, it can work with Oreo Cool Mint Cookies. I bet you didn’t even know they existed. That’s what I’m here for.

Your challenge in this recipe will be the Peppermint Ganache. It was my first experience and it turned out to be easier then expected. You just heat up some heavy cream and peppermint extract and chocolate. The recipe does a great job of walking you through.

This is a great recipe to start off the fall season. Hit the Recipe button and Bake

Mini Oreo No Bake Cheese (cup) Cakes

Oreo Cheese Cake bites

I swear Oreo’s have to be one of the most versatile baking cookies in the world. In the fall/winter/spring I’m not that big into “No Bake” recipes however, I saw this recipe and we had some extra Philadelphia cream cheese and I needed a reason to go buy Oreo’s so this was the perfect fit.

The author of this is a woman after my own heart. She took the recipe that was posted on the Australian Philadelphia cream cheese site, simplified it and in my opinion made them more visually appealing. Now instead of crushing Oreo for a crust, you can just lay down one full Oreo – the trick as you will see and learn, is getting the Oreo Cream Cheese mixture to sit on the Oreo in a perfect cylinder. Probably the hardest part of the recipe.

Peanut Butter Cream Filled Chocolate Cupcakes (Gluten Free Option)

Peatnut Butter Cream Filled Cupcakes

So I found out that a few of my daughter’s friends have issues with gluten.  I’m from the old school before gluten allergies were properly diagnosed, where we ate everything, smoked candy cigarettes and played cowboys and Indians, and boys and girls both had cap guns and sling shots.

As an adult it’s my responsibility to progress and with that comes learning about new things and having new experiences, hence the beginning of my serious journey into gluten free cupcakes.

I stumbled on this little recipe simply because visually hey looked fantastic and thought if those are gluten free, then my daughters friends are going to be in for a treat.  The best part of this recipe is that you can make it gluten free or not.

The recipe is straight forward and what you see in the middle is a peanut butter cream that will make you want to spread it on everything!!  This recipe is a little effort that looks like a lot of work.  Those are my favorite kinds.  Hit the Recipe link below and BAKE!!

Oreo Bite Minis

I realize there is no shortage of Oreo cupcake recipes, event this site might have a dozen however…this is one of those recipes that look like a lot more work than they really are.  There is nothing like people thinking you slaved over a hot stove for hours – it just might buy you 30 minutes of peace and quiet.

The secret here is Crescent roll dough.  What you see that gives this dessert the cupcake like appearance is actually crescent roll dough placed in your muffin pan.  But these are Mini’s, so that is a mini Oreo and these are bite-sized.  This means you will have to make a lot.  I lost six of them somewhere between my oven and the dining room table (my stomach and waistline found them).

You will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome; this joins the list of my favs.
