  • Spread the candy melts up the sides of the mold until every bit of the mold is covered.
  • Let the molds sit about 5 minutes & re-spread any of the candy melts that sank to the bottom of the molds.
  • Place the molds in the refrigerator for about 30-45 minutes.
  • Once set, carefully remove the candy melt spheres from the mold. 
  • Fill half of the spheres with the hot cocoa powder & marshmallows.
  • Place a glass plate in the microwave for one minute. 
  • Remove the plate and immediately place each empty sphere on the hot place to heat the chocolate edges.

  • Sprinkle the pearls onto the bomb. The candy melts will act as a glue.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

If you still have some last-minute holiday baking to do, these Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies are always a winner in our house! I love these cookies because the base dough is only three ingredients and is gluten-free. Feel free to add in whatever else that your family likes. I made two batches this week and added in holiday M&M’s to one, and then used Hershey’s Kisses for a Hershey’s Kiss Blossom Cookie.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

One Egg

One Cup of Sugar (I prefer the Domino Golden Sugar as it is less processed and gives the cookies a nice golden color)

One Cup of Peanut Butter

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Blend all ingredients with a hand mixer until a soft dough forms.

With a cookie scoop, place on a non-stick baking pan.

Cook until browned but the cookies still have a soft texture. Do not overbake or they will be hard. You will want to check the time on these but it should be around 8-10 minutes.

Tip: If you are making the Hershey’s Kisses Blossom cookies,  you will need to wait just a few minutes before you place the Hershey’s Kiss in the cookie or it will melt.

Serve and enjoy!

Cinnamon Roll Snowmen

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Need a fun yet festive breakfast idea for the holidays? These Cinnamon Roll Snowmen are the perfect treat and couldn’t be easier to prepare!

Ingredients

● 1 can Pillsbury Grands Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls, 17.5 oz

● 1 can Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, 12.4 oz

● Candy Eyeballs

● Milk Chocolate Chips

● Small Pretzel Sticks

● Candy Corn

● Blueberries

 

Directions

1. Open the can of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls, and remove one roll. Begin unrolling the roll until it is slightly smaller than the other rolls in the can. Using a knife, cut the extra portion off, and roll it up and place it in the pan beside the newly sized roll. (There are 5 rolls in the can, so you could repeat this process with another roll, so that you have 3 large rolls, 2 medium sized rolls, and 2 tiny rolls formed from the portion you removed. Or you can cut and resize all 5 rolls, reserving the small portion that was removed to be used as the “head” of the snowman) Open the can of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, and place in a separate pan. Bake both pans of cinnamon rolls per package instructions.

2. Once the cinnamon rolls are cooked, remove one large roll, and place at the bottom center of a plate. Place one of the slightly smaller rolls you resized right about the large roll. Place one of the rolls from the other pan (the 12.4 oz can) above the middle roll. Ice each roll with the icing provided.

3. Stick pretzel sticks into the middle roll at an angle to form arms. Place the candy eyeballs on the top small roll, and stick a candy corn right below the eyes to be the nose. Make a mouth out of milk chocolate chips, and place 3 blueberry “buttons” down the middle of the middle roll.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

I don’t know about you, but I absolutey love cobblers! Cobbler is related to crumbling and crisp desserts. It is a deep-dish fruit dessert with a thick biscuit topping, or in some cases, a loose crumb topping. Cobbler is typically made using fruits such as apples, peaches, blueberries, and raspberries. The following are some fruit cobbler recipes that use less common fruits. I hope that you will enjoy!
