Snickers Cupcakes

Easily one of the best cupcake recipes I've come across, these chocolate cupcakes have middles that are filled with bits of snickers covered in homemade caramel sauce. What, did your teeth just tell you to stay away from these? You may want to make a dentist appointment after eating them, but they're amazing and will charm the pants off of your everyone at your party when you bring them out!

Chocolate Dump Cake

It may not have the prettiest title, but this chocolate cake is so easy that you'll actually volunteer to bring it to family functions. No kidding! With a shockingly low amount of ingredients, this chocolate cake spans seasons. Need a quick dessert for dinner? Dump cake. Need to bring a cake into work when you don't care enough to bake something for people you don't even like? Dump cake.

Red Velvet Cupcakes + Cream Cheese Icing

You only turn 26 once, and when you do you should celebrate with Red Velvet! These cupcakes come with a long line of recommendations and will not disappoint. Scouts honor.

Cherry Kolaches Part 1

I like to age myself. No really, what's so wrong with it sometimes? I'm only 25 but I bake like a Grandma. It's because when I was growing up my sister and I used to bake with our Gramma all the time. She was a master baker, and even though sometimes we give her a hard time for all of her crazy substitutions (like the one time when she only had so many chocolate chips so she used raisins. What's the difference really, they're both black) the lady's got skills.  She was the only person I knew that would keep bananas in her freezer just to bake with, and I'm pretty sure she's the only person I've ever known that refused to use the recipe on the back of the chocolate chips bag. That's ludicrous.

To get back on point here- today's recipe is old school. I found it in the mystery magazine that's still being delivered (see, now I'm harking back to earlier posts. I'm getting this.) It's official magazine name is Coffee Klatch Kolaches, but since I don't drink coffee and have no idea what a kolache is I felt the liberty to change the name for this blog. 

I've yet to make these yet, but will be baking them soon for this weekend. They look excellent in the magazine, and I was able to find the recipe online too: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Coffee-Klatch-Kolaches/?addtobox=y

If the link doesn't work because I am a (very prestigious) member of the site, here's a photo of what they will look like. These pastries will be cherry filled when they leave my kitchen, and will hopefully look like this photo. This is me clearly not taking the credit for the photo, it was taken from the website just for demonstration purposes.

They look good right? Yes, they do. And like any red blooded American, I had no idea how to pronounce Kolaches, but I'll save that explanation for when I post the results and all the non-stolen photos I will take.

Wish me luck! In the mean time, thank you to all 12 of my readers for making this blog an overwhelming success! We have over 400 views, and in turn, we are the big time.
