Bailey's Mint Chocolate Truffles ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mint #chocolate #truffles

These pretty little mint chocolate truffles are very similar to my super-popular Bailey’s Irish Cream truffles, but with a lovely mint flavor from  peppermint extract and some crushed candy canes.

Peanut Butter Zucchini Cake

Irish Cream Mocha Latte Magic Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #decadent #dessert #recipe

These bars go by many names and can be made in so many flavors. My son likes to refer to them as “mashup bars”, while my yoga friends call them “orgasm bars” (because they taste like an orgasm in your mouth) … my foodie friends refer to these type of bars as “magic bars”.  All […]

Chocolate Caramel Nut Magic Bars

Chocolate Caramel Nut Magic Bars ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #orgasmic #chewy #layer #bars #recipe

I lied. The name of these bars is not “Chocolate Caramel Nut Magic Bars” … the real name for this recipe came about because I gave a box of these lovely bars to my yoga friend for her birthday. She told everyone at yoga how wonderful they were … so then I had to make them […]


Pretzel English Toffee

Pretzel English Toffee ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dessert #candy #ImperialSugar

Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

Adapted slightly from Food Faith Fitness Oh dear foodie friends, I did it! After 4 months, I am within 1 lb. of my weight-loss goal. Some people might say I should wait to celebrate until I’m there, but (a couple pounds ago) one of my friends looked at me like it’s time to stop … I said I […]
