Yay! Hooray! Yippee! Hallelujah! All of the cheers for summer. School is officially over. Time to celebrate. No surprise…our celebrations ALWAYS include sweet treats. We’re planning to make our favorite loaded chocolate chip cookies. We’ll sprinkle in a variety of red, white, and blue m and ms to honor our loved ones, military, and country. Happy Memorial Day! Happy summer!!!
There’s nothing much sweeter than a mother’s love. And she deserves nothing less a sweet treat full of all her favorite sweets. That’s why this Mother’s Day, we’re hosting a Make Your Own Brownie Trifle Bar. Brownies, ice cream, whip cream, pink frosting, and a variety of chocolates and toppings layered up just the way she wants in a cute little mason jar. May your Mother’s Day be the sweetest one yet!
Good thing it’s Saturday because our baking cabinets are full! We’ve been stockpiling ingredients like nobody’s business and it’s time to get organized! What better way to use these goodies than in our Loaded Oatmeal Cookies. Chocked full of all things chocolate, a variety of M&Ms, toffee, and for extra crunch – pretzels! We will get these cabinets cleaned out so we have room for tasty new ingredients to try!
Make Sister Sweetly’s Favorite Oatmeal Cookie Dough. Stir in dark chocolate chips, a variety of M&M flavors, Heath Bits, and pretzel pieces. Bake according to the recipe directions. Now go stock up again!
Brownies. We love them. We love everything about them. We love them plain. But we especially love them when they come with extras. This Saturday we’re indulging in brownies covered in Oreo pieces and hot fudge. And Heath bits too. We might even top them with a little whip cream. Thank you brownie inventor. You make our Saturdays full of sweet love.
Saturdays are for bakers and makers! Somethings just go better together! While our ooey-gooey Flourless Brownie Cookies baked in the oven we were busy crafting up some more holiday goodies to make our homes extra festive. And isn’t it fitting that National Cookie Day was yesterday and today we bake them! Baking and making our way through another Saturday makes us super joyful!
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 6 T butter
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup dark cocoa powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup toffee bits
- Combine the sugars and butter in a microwavable bowl (or in a pot on the stove). Heat until bubbly, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and beat well with a hand mixer.
- Add in the egg whites and vanilla and beat with a mixer for two minutes (this, along with melting the butter and sugar, helps create a crackly crust on top of the cookies).
- Stir together the cocoa and salt and add them to the batter. Beat for another 30 seconds.
- Fold in the chips and toffee. The batter maybe be thin. Allow the batter to rest while you preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly grease a cookie sheet. The batter should thicken as it rests.
- When the batter is scoopable (but still very sticky), scoop by about 3 tablespoons full onto pan.
- Bake cookies for about 12-15 minutes. When they come out of the oven, you can press a few more chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies.

And just like that, Halloween has come and gone. But the leftover candy bars are here to stay for just a little while longer. And our love of cake and pumpkin will be around forever. Pumpkin cake topped with mini Halloween candy bars are exactly what we need at this very moment on a Saturday in early November. Fall flavors for life!
Isn’t it a great when two things you love happen on the same day. Halloween on a Saturday!!! Double the reason to get our bake on. And what’s more fitting for Halloween than monster cookies. Add a little cookie butter and few extra chocolate treats and you’ve got a “spooktacular” Halloween sweet for all your little monsters! Our Halloween Candy Cookie Butter Monster Cookies will definitely put the sweet in your trick or treat!
We’ve mentioned GORP on our blog many times. It’s the perfect entertaining treat. This weekend we are throwing a little Besties Birthday Party where we are celebrating our 2020 birthdays. Our besties know us for many things including baking, crafting, home decorating, and GORP! We decided, with the help of being gifted some yummy sweets (thanks sister-in-law), to throw together some newness to our GORP mix. This time we are adding Animal Crackers and Circus Cookies to our usual favorites: Rolos, Heath, Bugles, Peanut M & Ms, and Pretzels. Happy Birthday Besties! We think every year is important to celebrate. Even 2020! Especially 2020!!!
When you are a baker and your oven decides to go kaput, you have two choices: 1) take a week off baking—which is never gonna happen or 2) use a different method. Enter the stovetop. With “her” help and a nonstick pan, our favorite oatmeal cookies will get a new spin on life. Stovetop Skillet Cookies. #winning!!!
Have you heard the good news? M&M just came out with a brand new flavor. Fudge Brownie. As M&M and brownie conasuers, we felt like the creators must have had us in mind when creating a candy that fits our taste buds perfectly. Not only do we appreciate this, but our families will, as well. Because…this Saturday these little morsels will be the newest addition to our favorite Loaded Oatmeal Cookies. Fudge Brownie M&Ms for the win!
Add Fudge Brownie M&Ms, Heath Bits, and dark chocolate chips to the batter. Bake up and indulge!
