Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Clusters | Mountain Cravings

Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Clusters

Because we haven’t had enough sweets yet, right? Right! I’d be a little embarrassed to call this a recipe if it wasn’t the holidays. It’s all of 4 ingredients. And they’re all in the title, because I have no restraint with words. But they’re such good ingredients! Caramels melted into pretzels, drizzled with dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt!…

Nutella Espresso Brownies | Mountain Cravings

Nutella Espresso Brownies

Nutella. Espresso. Brownies! Yaaaaas. For sure there’s nothing better than chocolate and espresso… unless it’s chocolate and hazelnut. We’re talking flavor triple-threat to send us straight to decadent-fudgey-brownie heaven. I’ve been sneaking “just half a brownie” bites all day long. Somehow – totally unrelated, for sure – the pan is already mostly empty.

Fresh Blueberry Cobbler | Mountain Cravings

Fresh Blueberry Cobbler

Easy, fresh, spoonable cobbler is great for summer get-togethers! None of the hassle of cutting pie pieces, no chocolate melting all over the place… although a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream is definitely required (melting encouraged). Bring it along on picnics, to backyard barbeques, to your own porch for a sweet bite after dinner… or the most decadent…

It’s finally all-the-way too-hot summertime! This means letting the pup get muddy in the creek and spending all the time grilling out at the pool and craving ice cream for breakfast-lunch-dinner. Let’s make our own real quick with whatever mix-ins we want! I remember this recipe floating around years ago and now I’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner.…

Brownie Waffle Cakes

Let me repeat that – BROWNIE. WAFFLE. CAKES. They’re pretty amazing. We’re making sweet, fudgy brownies into the ultimate party dessert. It’s always easiest to make individually-portioned no-plate-required foods when you’re cooking for a big group – and especially for the Super Bowl, everything should be sports-color-coordinated. And definitely covered in sprinkles.

Bourbon Pecan Truffles

You guys, I’m obsessed with these Bourbon Pecan Truffles. Know when you taste something so unexpectedly amazing that you’ve taken a second and third bite before you can stop yourself? These are more like my sixth bite with no signs of stopping. Pecans spiked with bourbon and wrapped in velvet dark chocolate are my love language. These deserve a place on your holiday cookie…

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake Balls

Halloween is here! Who can resist the chilly fall atmosphere, kids in costumes, and too many sweets?! The hard truth of being an adult is buying your own Halloween candy… there is just no way to make it as fun as running around the neighborhood getting free candy from your neighbors. The best answer is to make your own treats – Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cake Balls,…

Almond Biscotti

Biscotti are my favorite complement to a lazy Sunday morning cup of coffee and reading on the porch. Or a cold night by the fire, dipped in hot chocolate… or snuck off the baking sheet too-hot and dipped in milk because I’m impatient. Honesty. These almond biscotti are so incredibly easy to make but totally seem more impressive than regular…
