Oreo Muffins


   Sometimes (although rare) Oreos get left behind and not eaten. Or, at least not placed in the center of what will be a Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie. So, what do you do with those Oreos? Well, crunch them up and put them into another recipe of course!

Brown Sugar Cookies

   Sugar cookies are all the rage. I mean, who isn't looking for the perfect sugar cookie recipe? Well I myself have tried a few different recipes "back in my day" and none measure up to those amazing ones you can buy at the local grocery store. So I've given up...almost.

Gummy Bear Thumbprint Cookies

   Valentines day is coming up! And how better to celebrate than the making of cute little cookies to share with friends and family? And the perfect part? They are sweet and fruity, unlike the subtle tangy-ness of my nerds cupcakes I made last week. The actual heart shape idea came from a Beautiful Mess, and the recipe itself came from The Baking Robot. The only (visible) difference between the two recipes is that a Beautiful Mess made half of the original recipe and created hearts instead of the original thumbprint shapes in the dough.

Nerds Cupcakes

   So do you guys know about those SUUPER huge nerds boxes? Well, my dad got one down in Vegas thinking it would be full of just the candy....and bummed that it was all individual boxes. So these nerds have ending up in the candies bowl but nobody has eaten them! And what a better way to eat nerds than in a cupcake?

Hot Chocolate Cookies

So I have had the pleasure to get some snow today....well, some snow at least. At this point, anything is better than nothing! I just wish that it was sticking to the ground, making snow angels and snowmen are definitely fun!

   Either way, snow and cold must mean only one thing... HOT CHOCOLATE!! I absolutely looove hot cocoa, and will make almost any excuse in order the drink it! Well, I stumbled across this recipe on the Pinterest cookies page, and knew that I would need an excuse to make these cookies (as well as a cup of hot cocoa to drink). The sad part is, I had to sacrifice my highly coveted marshmallows stash...but these cookies were definitely worth it!
