Are you on the lookout for a yummy late night snack or sweet treat recipe? I’ve got you covered. Here is the delicious recipe for cake batter cookies! They will have you smiling from ear to ear and will have your taste buds wanting more.

Ingredients:Cake-Batter-Chocolate-Chip-Cookies-by-Sallys-Baking-Addiction-12

  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cup vanilla boxed cake mix
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup unsalted, softened butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup sprinkles

In a big bowl, sift the flour, cake mix, and baking soda together. Set that aside. Then, use a mixer to cream the softened butter and both sugars together on medium until it is smooth. Then add in the egg and mix it on high for 1 minute. Scrape the sides down and add the vanilla, then beat it on high until combined. Add the flour mixture and mix on low-medium speed until combined. Add the chocolate chips and sprinkles and mix together. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 350 and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Scoop rounded balls of the cold dough onto the baking sheet and press a few chocolate chops into the tops.  Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned. Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 4 minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

Grab a cold glass of milk and enjoy!

Fudgesicles Featuring Nutella

Although summer is coming to a close that doesn’t mean that the warm weather is done with its smothering assault on us. It stays warm where I live wellll into September, so I am going to take advantage of it as long as I can, and that means whipping up sweet cold treats. Here is one of my fav cold recipes: Nutella fudgesicles! Fudgesicles are fudge popsicles. Here is how to whip yourself up a batch!

Ingredients:red-nutella-pop_250

  • 1 ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • ¼ cup & 2 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coca powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Put the milk and corn starch in a saucepan and stir until the starch is dissolved. Place the mixture over medium heat and add the Nutella and cocoa powder. Stir it frequently so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Heat it for about 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens and then take it off of the heat. Stir in the vanilla and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes while stirring frequently. Once it has cooled pour the mixture into the molds and freeze it for 6 hours or more. When you are ready to devour them, hold the mold under warm water to help the fudsicles come loose.

These sound like heaven! Woud YOU try these fudgy pops?

XOXO, Chels

Pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING is the rave right now! That is why I have whipped up a sweet recipe that combines my favorite vegan food, bananas, and a fall favorite, bananas!3929_LRGimg

Ingredients:

  • 4 large very large bananas, frozen
  • ½ cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree
  • Optional: honey or maple syrup to add some natural sweetness!

Instructions:

blend the frozen bananas and pumpkin together in a blender until creamy. The bananas must be frozen before you make this dish even if you are going to freeze the ice cream after blending. Taste and add some sweetener, like maple syrup or honey, if you so desire. Serve immediately for soft serve texture or if you want a firmer dish you can freeze it for around 4 hours!

Because this dish only has 2 ingredients, bananas and pumpkin, it is a great healthy sweet treat!

XOXO, Chels

Hi everyone!  If you’re like me, then you LOVE food! I love all sorts of food from cookies and hot chocolate to chips, dip, and popcorn.  During the holiday season, fun treats and savory snacks are everywhere.  It’s the perfect opportunity to whip up your favorite dish or dessert.  Pinterest is an awesome place to find any recipe you can imagine.  I always find the perfect recipe to satisfy my craving.  Today, I’ll show you a few of my favorite sweet and salty holiday treats.  The recipes will be provided at the bottom of the page!
I’m sure many of you have heard of or have had puppy chow.  It is Chex cereal covered in chocolate, peanut butter, and powdered sugar.  It’s amazing!  Well, I’ve found a recipe that takes puppy chow to the next level.  It is red velvet puppy chow!  If you love red velvet cake then you will love this!  All you need is white chocolate chips, cream cheese, a box of red velvet cake mix, milk, and powdered sugar.  It’s a very simple recipe that can be set out as a quick sweet snack.  For full instructions check out the link below!

If you’re like me, then you love to eat the batter of chocolate chip cookies.  Whenever my mom is making cookies, I like to grab a bite of the dough.  Now, we all know this is bad for you, so here’s the perfect alternative, cookie dough bites!  It is an eggless cookie dough that you can enjoy without the worry.  All you need is 1 cup of melted salted butter, 1 ½ cups of brown sugar, 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 6 ounces of mini chocolate chips.  Mix all of this together in a bowl and create little balls of cookie dough.  Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, drizzle with chocolate, and enjoy!

Now, I’ve got a quick and easy salty treat that can be enjoyed as a snack or the perfect side to a sandwich.  It is pepperoni chips!  They are a great alternative to chips and are for pepperoni and pizza lovers alike.  All you need is a bag of pepperoni.  Lay the pepperoni on a microwavable plate and microwave for about 60 seconds.  Now, the pepperoni should be nice and crispy.  Enjoy alone or with your favorite salad dressing.  I love to dip mine in ranch.  Finally, you’ve got the perfect chip with that pizza flavor that everyone loves!
I hope everyone enjoys my sweet and salty treats!  Don’t forget to check out my videos and click on the links below for the full recipes.  Love you all!

Sweet Getting-To-Know-You Game

Are you ever at a party and its kinda awkward because you don’t really know the people there? I have a super sweet idea for a “getting to know you” game that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Why? It involves chocolate! I’m in! This game can be played in any situation that you need to break the ice.

Have each person take a handful of M&Ms and put them in a plastic cup so they don’t melt in their hands. For each color of M&M, you have to answer a specific question. Here are some examples:

–          Red- something that happened yesterday.

–          Orange- something you are good at.chelsea crockett

–          Yellow- something about your childhood.

–          Blue- something you cannot live without.

–          Brown- something you learned last week.

–          Green- something you like to watch/listen to.

This kind of activity not only makes things less awkward because you get to talking and learning about each other, it is also delicious! Try this out next time you have a gathering or a few friends over.

XOXO, Chels
