Irish Cream Mocha Latte Magic Bars

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 Irish Cream Mini Cupcakes with Bailey's Cream Cheese Frosting ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Irish #cake #recipe #StPatricksDay

with Bailey’s cream cheese frosting … recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour and Family Fresh Meals I made these cupcakes for a yoga sleepover party that we’re having tonight, by request from the hostess, who posted the recipe from King Arthur Flour on facebook and asked me to make them for her. And because she’s a […]


Skinny Peppermint Mocha Latte

Skinny Peppermint Mocha Latte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #coffee

This time of year, I crave peppermint mochas. I’m tempted to stop at Starbucks or Caribou every time I drive by one and I frequently allow myself this extra little indulgence especially when it gets bitter cold outside (and it has been REALLY cold this year!) I found myself planning my shopping trips with a short […]


Maple Spice Pumpkin Latte {with Skinny Options}

Maple Spice Pumpkin Latte ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #coffee #recipe

(no espresso maker required) This morning I went to yoga on an empty stomach. Very bad idea. Normally if I do this, I can’t even make it through yoga class, but thanks to all the extra food I ate this week, I didn’t have any trouble making it through yoga. The trouble I had was […]


Chocolate Mocha Amaretto Balls for our Troops

Chocolate Mocha Amaretto Balls

Yesterday I got a message on my Sumptuous Spoonfuls facebook page from a friend of a friend of mine. She has been sending cookies to our troops in Afghanistan and this year they asked for 178 dozen cookies/treats … she was feeling a little overwhelmed and was looking for some help! 178 dozen cookies is […]


Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

These date bars are like your childhood favorites … all grown up. With underlying hints of chocolate, coffee … and Kahlua. And a bit of Nutella in there, too, just for fun. This recipe reminds me of my baby sister. She was the one who just loved date bars when we were growing up. Mom […]


Skinny Peppermint Mocha Slushie

Skinny Peppermint Mocha Slushie

It’s National Coffee Day … I intended to make it to the coffee shop this morning to buy myself a fancy coffee, but then I got busy with other things … When I finally got home this afternoon, I still had a craving for coffee. I opened the fridge and there sat a pot of […]


Mocha Frangelico Surprise Truffles

Mocha Frangelico Date Surprise Truffles

and How I (almost) Killed My Ninja Chopper I had a funny naming conversation with my (male) friend about these truffles … it went something like this: Me:  Hey what do you think I should name those truffles? Him:  Bob … or Robert Me: LOL, you’re funny Him: Wait, I guess they really should be called […]


Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse

Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse

It’s National Chocolate Mousse Day today, so of course I had to make some chocolate mousse! I lightened it up by using nonfat Greek yogurt and an egg white in place of the heavy cream, but it still tastes deliciously decadent, with deep dark undertones of Kahlua and hazelnut. Light & Luscious Mocha Nutella Mousse […]


Chocolate Dipped Cranberry Apricot Energy Balls

Chocolate Dipped Cranberry Apricot Energy Balls

The idea for these has been floating around in my head for weeks … I wanted to make a little ball of goodness that would be great for quick energy on the go, something with protein and fruit and a few carbs so it would give my body lots of the things it needs before […]


Mocha Cream Liqueur Slimmed Down

Sorta Skinny Mocha Cream Liqueur (Homemade Bailey's)

A creamy dreamy, rich and sweet coffee cream liqueur without all the fat of the heavy cream that’s in Bailey’s and those “store bought” cream liqueurs. Not quite Bailey’s, but oh so good just the same. A very nice nightcap or little something to slip into your coffee. Did you make the homemade coffee liqueur […]


Making your own Coffee Liqueur (Kahlua)

Homemade Coffee Liqueur

“Coffee smells like freshly ground heaven.”  ~Jessi Lane Adams Do you love coffee? I do. I love the smell of it … remember it even as a child, I loved the smell of my dad’s coffee. So yes, I also love coffee liqueur. And I always like the idea of making things that you normally […]
