Rugelach Palmiers Recipe

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I’m not usually excited for Valentine’s Day, always kind of seemed silly, but it’s a sweet little holiday, isn’t it? Hubby and I don’t celebrate this one, but I caved and gave him a card and chocolates anyway. I felt like I couldn’t ignore Valentine’s Day! This week also marks 8 years since we started dating so it’s nice to give that a little head nod.

I wanted to share these Palmiers – French elephant ears – on V-day since they bake into little hearts! Aren’t they adorable? They’re also incredibly easy, so run over to the grocery store and pick up some puff pastry to make these tonight!

French Palmiers are typically just cinnamon sugar in the middle, so if you don’t want to make these with the Rugelach filling you can just combine some sugar and cinnamon and then bake them up. They are still so good with just a simple filling!

I love a Rugelach cookie so I wanted to try these with a little bit of something more substantial than cinnamon and sugar. Rugelach filling is usually a combination of walnuts, raisins, sugar and cinnamon. I went to the store, grabbed the puff pastry, and thought I had walnuts and raisins at home…I had pecans and cranberries and sometimes you just have to improvise. And it worked!

How to Make Caramel Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks

You know how right after Thanksgiving you feel like you are ready to kick of the Christmas season? After Thanksgiving dinner, we always watch Christmas Vacation, which feels like a real transition to the second part of the holiday season. That’s kind of how I feel about the Super Bowl. Now that the game is behind us, I’m ready to officially shift in to Valentine’s Day. And I expect everyone to transition with me, since for dessert at our Super Bowl party everyone had these Valentine’s Day caramel chocolate covered pretzels.

Admittedly, I’ve been avoiding the whole chocolate covered pretzel thing for quite literally no reason. I think because I couldn’t wrap my head around the combination of sprinkles that would be pretty? So ridiculous to not make them for such an easy problem to solve – and it really was easy to solve! I just went to Michael’s, picked one set of sprinkles I loved and then used those to pick 4 more variations that I thought all looked cute together.

Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn & 4 Food Shows to Watch on Netflix

Get your remotes and popcorn ready, have I got a list for you! If you want some foodie things to watch on Netflix, I’m your girl and this is your post. Plus, I’m sharing my recipe for peanut butter cup popcorn, which you’re gonna want for your next #netflixandchill sesh. Trust me.

Okay, friends, let’s get into the list, while we collectively drool over this peanut butter cup popcorn. I mean….can you even???

 

To make this popcorn, you’ll pop up some in your microwave or follow the directions from my stove top popcorn recipe. Next, you lay it out on a sheet, drizzle with peanutbutter magic shell and sprinkle peanut butter cups on top. Pop it in the fridge until the chocolate hardens and then serve in small bowls! Easy!

Mixed Berry Cobbler Dessert Recipe

Get ready for this one, friends! You will not believe how easy this dessert is and how simple it is to pull together. If you are in a pinch, need a quick idea, or just want to shake it up a little, try these mixed berry cobblers for dessert! Don’t let a crumbly topping scare you away from this one – it’s easy, promise! And the filling is literally just berries and sugar. C’est tout!

I served these hot, out of the oven and topped with fresh whipped cream. The whipped cream melted into the cobblers and it was simply lovely.

The cobbler topping baked into the sweet berries and gave a little saltiness and a little crunch that mixed so well with the baked berries.

One-Bite Mini Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Guys, I really love pumpkin spice. The day that the PSL becomes available, I feel like the fall season truly kicks off. Bring on the sweaters and scarves, and #pumpkinspiceeverything. But – I do not like pumpkin pie. But – I love these pumpkin pies!

I think the crust-to-pie ratio makes me like these minis, but I also love how silky the filling is. How quickly these come together doesn’t hurt, either!

Some of my friends and family aren’t really fans of pumpkin pie either, and I’m definitely more known for my apple pie. But there’s something magical about these little one-bite pumpkin pies that seem to be a crowd pleaser. Topping them with a bunch of whipped cream doesn’t hurt either!
