I. Can’t. Stop. Watching.

Caramel Violet Crumble Chocolate Chip Cookies - www.yummycrumble.comNow, I know that Caramel Violet Crumble Chocolate Chip Cookies is an obnoxiously long title for a little ‘ole chocolate chip cookie.  I get it.  You’re probably thinking, “why not paste with Fleur del sel on the end while your’e at it?”  Well, smarty pants…it’s already mixed in the salted caramel. :)  These cookies are so good they deserve that extra long title.  They’re so good that even if I ended up naming them Ebola Cookies, you’d be raving about Ebola Cookies to all your friends and not even care.  Too soon?  Too soon…

I hate to start this post out with a rant, but I’m kind of grumpy.  Everything I’ve put in my oven apparently is suicidal, it’s raining like freaking Vancouver,  and  I stepped on a Lego about five minutes ago. Seriously, the Lego peeps need to round down the edges of their treacherous little building blocks.  I’m going to write a strongly worded letter after I furiously compose this post about these Red Velvet Oreo Brownies.  I know everyone envisions their favorite red velvet desserts drenched in cream cheese frosting.  Well, forget about that junk. I’m taking red velvet to the dark side.

Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes

Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Champagne Frosting - www.yummycrumble.comRomantic Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day!  Divine devil’s food cake cupcakes frosted with bright pink raspberry champagne frosting and topped with fresh raspberries and a raspberry champagne glaze.

Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Champagne Frosting - www.yummycrumble.comLet’s talk about romance for a minute.  In my tweens, I pictured love to be just like the movies.  You know, the romantic comedies where the female lead accidentally runs into the handsome man.  She spills her coffee on his shirt while their dogs get tangled in each others leashes.  They laugh.  He whisks her off to Paris for a shopping spree.  Then it’s candles, chocolate, and Barry White 24/7.  Oh, and these Chocolate Raspberry Champagne Cupcakes.  Definitely these cupcakes. Because these cupcakes have raspberry champagne glaze, and that is totally romance.

Every now and then my husband and I reminisce about how we met.  The mysterious band guy messages the silly college girl online.  They laugh.  He whisks her off to Super Walmart in his big white band van on a grocery spree.  Now it’s giggling, chocolate, and Ella Fitzgerald 24/7.  Oh, and dirty diapers.  But I wouldn’t trade my romantic comedy for anything, because I’m deeply in love with my best friend.  Well, maybe nix the dirty diapers. :)

Seriously guys.  Look at these cupcakes.  Someone needs to make Nutella dipped strawberries the universal symbol for love.  Are you with me?  If the strawberry dripping with melted Nutella doesn’t catch your eye, well then you’re a weirdo.  Now I’m definitely a dark chocolate fiend at heart.  I can chug a bowl of chocolate ganache if the challenge presents itself, but there is just something so comforting and indulgent about Nutella that get’s me going.  So to keep this post G-rated, lets talk about these Nutella Strawberry Cupcakes before I get carried away :)

Star Wars Tusken Raider Cookies

Star Wars Tusken Raider Cookies - www.yummycrumble.comStar Wars Tusken Raider Cookies made out of easy vanilla madeleine cookies and creamy peanut butter frosting.  Cute chocolate chip eyes and a chocolate mouth make these guys a little more adorable and a lot less menacing.

Star Wars Tusken Raider Cookies - www.yummycrumble.comBy far, my favorite Star Wars characters are those viscous creatures known as the Tatooine Sand People.  Some may call them creepy with their vacant eyes , weird ventilating mouth, and tubes protruding from their faces.  Not to mention their crazy battle cry.  You know, the one you heard when that jerk URoRRuR’R’R attacks Luke.  That wasn’t a typo.  That’s actually his name.  Lucas, you wonderful strange man you.
