Hungry???

Happy Sunday everyone! I've been doing quite a bit of baking lately and wanted to share what i've made. Luckily, it's been for parties and other people...otherwise i'd have gained about 15 pounds just this week!

First up...Black bottomed pumpkin caramel mini cheesecakes topped with a pumpkin spice hershey's kiss!


These were a nightmare!! I was supposed to use a mini cheesecake pan, which has straight sides. But I used a mini muffin tin and I could NOT get the cheesecakes out! Out of the 15 I made, only 4 made it out of the pan! They tasted good after a day in the fridge, but I think I need to use a different pan next time!! The recipe is HERE.

Next up...homeade Whoopie Pies!



Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting in the middle and chocolate chip with vanilla buttercream frosting in the middle. These were sooooooooo good!!! I made them with cake mix, but modified the cake mix by adding no water to the mix and butter instead of oil. And only 1 egg. Rolled the dough into balls and baked them like cookies. These were really good and super easy. You must try them!!

Chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies...because a girl can't have too much chocolate!


And homeade Samoa girl scout cookie bars (I think they also call them Caramel Delights now)...



These were fantastic! It is my husband's favorite girl scout cookie and he really enjoyed them. At the party I went to Friday night, they disappered first and many people asked me for the recipe. Which you can find HERE!!


That's about all! I think i'm done baking for a bit so I can my butt back into shape. I've been slacking on the workouts, trying to let my achilles tendon heal. But this week i'm back in action and going to try to get my running back on schedule. Hope you are all having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!!
