Peppermint Chocolate Chip Vanilla Chex Treats (GF/V/NF/SF)

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Vanilla Chex Treats | The Blonde Buckeye

Need a way to use up those leftover candy canes? I did. So I made these delicious treats. I have been on a search for cereal that I can eat. I’ve found a few ‘allergen-free’ cereals… but they were not great. Turns out, the Gluten Free Chex are approved! Who knew. Anyways when I saw the vanilla ones I thought they’d make a great marshmallowy treat.Continue Reading

Peeps Macarons

Peeps Macarons | The Blonde Buckeye

I think you can make anything ‘Peeps’. Fill it with marshmallow and coat it with sugar, and Ithink you’ve got a Peep. That’s what I did with my Easter Macarons, or Peeps Macarons. They’re pink, they’re marshmallowy, they’re sugary, what more could you want on a day like Easter?Continue Reading

Chocolate Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

Chocolate Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats | The Blonde Buckeye

These are technically ‘Chocolate Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats with Mint M&M’s and White Chocolate Drizzle’, but I didn’t want to get carried away with the name. It might take away from how crazy delicious these are. Also, you could make a hundred different variations of these. Any cereal, any candy, and any drizzle. The marshmallows are the glue that hold this masterpiece together though, so you probably don’t want to sub those out (and why would you want to?).

Blue Velvet Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting

Blue Velvet Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting | The Blonde Buckeye

Since I had that short little break from blogging, I didn’t get a chance to how you guys what I made for the 4th of July. So as they say, better late than never! Staying within the theme of patriotic holidays, I wanted to make something that was red, white &/or blue. I went with a blue velvet, instead of the traditional red velvet. Of course you can make these anytime of the year, but Labor Day is fast approaching, just sayin. I’ve made a ton of cupcakes in my day, but I’ve never used cake flour for some reason. Let me tell you, it makes your cupcakes SO FLUFFY! I need to do some experimentation with it as far as substituting it in other recipes, but I am sold.  The texture of these cupcakes is to die.  Then of course topped with Marshmallow Frosting, it’s like a little blue velvet sugar cloud. (and if you don’t have cake flour available, you can make it. Joy the Baker can show you how).

Peppermint Brownie Whoopie Pies

Brownie-Peppermint Whoopie Pies | The Blonde Buckeye

Obviously something has to be delicious in order for me even to share it with you peeps.  But sometimes, something is super-duper insanely delicious & when this happens, I feel obligated to let you know this. These Brownie Peppermint Whoopie Pies are one of those cases.  I’d say, probably in my top 5 most delicious treats I’ve made, if not the most delicious of 2012.  I made them for Christmas Day with the fam & they were the perfect holiday dessert. Not to mention, they look pretty cute too, don’t you think?  Gooey brownie cookies, fluffy marshmallow frosting & crunchy candy cane pieces?!  I know.Continue Reading
