You can most definitely say that key lime pie is the key to my husband’s soul. It’s his ultimate weakness. Every year for his birthday, Christmas, our wedding anniversary, and Father’s Day, his little wish list is simple. Key Lime Pie. I have it pretty easy, and it comes with the added bonus of getting some. If he lets me.
Classic red velvet cupcakes smothered in decadent and rich Nutella buttercream frosting with a sprinkle of chopped milk chocolate and drizzle of dark chocolate. Chocolate and red velvet are the perfect match in these Nutella Red Velvet Cupcakes.
Quick, what do you always think of when someone says Red Velvet? Cream cheese frosting, right? BORING…Let’s break this mundane cycle people. I’m here to show you that red velvet’s partner in crime doesn’t always have to be cream cheese. I mean, just look at how insane these are! And just to make sure you get the idea, I used three kinds of chocolate in this cupcake. Three!
First is the creamy and smooth Nutella buttercream frosting which is absolute perfection. Then I topped them with a little chopped milk chocolate. I used Cadbury. The mother of all milk chocolate. (Thank you Great Britain…) And then to shake things up a bit, I drizzled some melted dark chocolate on top. Seriously, these Nutella Red Velvet Cupcakes will make you wonder why you always settled for boring old cream cheese frosting.
Gooey and super fudgey brownies baked with a ton of love and mini peppermint patties to give it that extra Christmas kick! Topped with whipped cream and crushed peppermint candies, these Peppermint Hot Cocoa Brownies are the perfect treat on a cozy winter night!
Well, my jeans a feeling a little tighter. That’s how I know Christmas is almost here. Only 17 more sleeps people! We’re over that Thanksgiving holiday hump and shopping plazas are getting crazy cramped. I’ts been getting harder to grocery shop at my beloved Target lately. I feel a little lazy though…I haven’t really started my Christmas shopping yet! Eeek! I’ve done a few purchases online here and there but I haven’t hit the stores and elbowed my way through those treacherous aisles. I’ll be honest…I’m not ready to battle with those crazy and desperate holiday shopping moms. I keep seeing that 1980’s footage of violent grown adults fighting each other for the last Cabbage Patch Doll. That being said, I better suit up and start before I become one of those crazy desperate moms!
By suiting up, I mean getting a huge helping of my new favorite brownie. Peppermint Hot Cocoa Brownies. Who doesn’t love peppermint paired with dark chocolate. If you say no, leave the premises immediately. Or stay and check these out.
