Mint Chocolate Mocha Fudge Cookies {Low Fat}

Mint Chocolate Mocha Fudge Cookies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #decadent #lowfat #chocolate #mint #cookie #recipe

Oooey gooey fudgy mint cookies with a melty mint chocolate swirl on top. I know maybe you won’t believe me when I tell you that there are only 2 Tablespoons of butter in the whole batch of these cookies, but it’s true! Of course there is some fat from the chocolate as well, but still, it’s a pretty […]

Candy Cane Crush Fudge ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #peppermint #whitechocolate #fudge #recipe

I’ve been on a fudge tangent this year. I decided fudge would be just the thing to make for our Wine & Design event last Friday and in keeping with my normal way of completely overdoing every tangent I embark upon,boy, did I make a LOT of fudge. Peppermint was the number one crowd pleaser, […]

Adapted ever so slightly from A Spicy Perspective Fudge that is rich and chocolaty, with a festive holiday peppermint crunch on both sides. And it’s super simple and speedy to make too!

Gluten Free Thin Mints ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #girlscout #cookie #recipe

Recipe from Almost Supermom It’s Girl Scout Cookie time. Now that my girl isn’t in Girl Scouts anymore, it isn’t that big of a deal to me, but there are some Girl Scout Cookies making their way around the office. I noticed a sad expression on my gluten free friend’s face one day when she […]


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 […]

Chocolate Candy Cane Pretzel Kisses ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #holiday #recipe

At the holidays, I always want to dip pretzels. I love pretzels dipped in white chocolate or dark chocolate … they are so good … but my favorite favorite favorite holiday treat is when they are dusted with crushed peppermint candy canes. This year I discovered an even easier way to “dip” my pretzels. The […]


Oreo Shamrock Cheesecake Squares

Oreo Shamrock Cheesecake Squares ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesecake #bars #recipe

Continuing on with my “green” theme this week, I thought I’d try making some minty shamrock cheesecake bars, with a chocolatey Oreo crust. My idea was to have the cheesecake layer taste sort of like a Shamrock Shake. It was a great idea and they taste marvelous, except I screwed up on one little thing. […]


Fresh & Simple Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

Fresh & Simple Homemade Peppermint Stick Ice Cream

One of my favorite winter treats is Peppermint Stick Ice Cream … I used to buy it around Christmas-time every year because that is the only time you would see it in the stores. If you happen to have any candy canes left after the holidays, it is really quite simple to make. It takes […]


Chocolate Peppermint Pecan Popcorn

Chocolate Peppermint Pecan Popcorn ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #peppermint #pecan #popcorn #recipe

Sweet, salty and crunchy: popcorn and toasted pecans drizzled with white and dark chocolate, dusted with crushed peppermint candy cane bits and coarse sea salt. It was 6 am Christmas morning and for some reason I woke up with peppermint popcorn on my mind. My kids were going to spend the day with their dad, […]

Those of you who knew me last year at Christmas-time might remember this one. I made it for the team at the office last year, and transported it all the way to California for the company meeting in my suitcase. This year it’ll be much easier to transport. I have a new job at a […]

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 […]

This is my holiday gift to you, my dear readers. These truffles are dark as midnight inside, with tiny specks of peppermint. I wish I could send you each a tin of these to grace your holiday table, but I will have to settle for just giving you the recipe. These truffles are simple to […]


Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Munch

Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Munch ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chocolate #peppermint #pretzel #recipe

One of our favorite treats at Christmas is to dip pretzels. I like mine with white chocolate and peppermint. My daughter likes just white chocolate, or sometimes we will drizzle the white chocolate pretzels with milk chocolate or sprinkles. I meant to make lots of treats to bring on my trip for my friends at […]
