S’mores are fall’s favorite treat. Not only do you get to cozy up to a fire while you make them, but they are so ooey and gooey and delicious. Not all of us have access to a bonfire whenever we feel the urge to enjoy a s’more, so that is where s’mores bark comes in. You can make this inside and enjoy it from the comfort of your kitchen! Plus, it is easily share-able.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ cups milk chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 3 sheets of graham crackers

Melt 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips and spread it over a pan covered in wax paper. Make sure the chocolate is layered thick. Refrigerate this for about an hour. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Then add in the marshmallow fluff and microwave it for about 30 seconds. Quickly spread the marshmallow and white chocolate layer over the hardened first chocolate layer. Crumble the graham crackers and press them into the marshmallow/chocolate layer. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, meanwhile melting 2 cups of chocolate chips. Spread this over the graham cracker layer and put it in the fridge for 2 hours. Take it out and break it apart. Store it in the fridge if you want a solid bark, and if you want it squishy leave it out in a covered container.

Yum!

XOXO, Chels

Acai bowls, or smoothie bowls, are the newest rave. Although they’re super healthy, they’re not only for the health nuts.  They’re a low-calorie, delicious snack that gives you lots of necessary vitamins and satisfies your fruit serving for the day! Chelsea Crockett - Acai Bowl Here’s how you can make your own right at home.

There are tons of different bowls you can make from Hawaiian, with lots of tropical fruits, or more of a sweet one with peanut butter and granola!  But for this recipe, I’ll just start with something simple and delicious!  You’ll first need a few ingredients: 1/2 a banana, 1 tbsp of cocoa powder, 1 1/2 tsp of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries, half cup of almond milk, and 1 3.5oz pack of frozen acai berries or acai berry pulp.

As far as preparation goes, you’ll need to put all of these ingredients in a blender to make an acai puree.  Then add your toppings! I suggest adding sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, granola, and some peanut butter drizzle on top to finish it off.  Then, simply enjoy!

Are you going to try and create one for yourself?  Let me know how yummy yours turns out! 🙂

Fall Puppy Chow

Puppy chow is probably on my list of top 10 favorite foods. Not even kidding. I cannot stop myself when there is a bowl of it in front of me. It just magically disappears. Since fall is upon us and everything is now pumpkin flavored, what sounds better than pumpkin flavored puppy chow? Not much. Not much at all. Here is how to make pumpkin spice puppy chow!

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
  • 12 ounces orange candy melts
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon1473888485-yummy-pumpkin-spice-puppy-chow
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 cups candy pumpkins

Pour the Chex cereal into a bowl and put to the side. Melt the candy melts for 20 seconds, stir, melt, and stir until they are melted. Stir 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, the cloves, allspice and nutmeg in to the candy melts until it is combined. Pour this mixture onto the cereal and stir gently to coat all of the squares. Be super gentle! Pour the powdered sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon into a large Ziploc baggie. Pour in the coated squares and shake until they are all coated in sugar. Pour in the pumpkins and toss some more. Store it in an air tight container, or just eat them all right then and there! No judgments here.

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Popsicles are my favorite summer snack.  Whether you want sweet, fruity, or chocolatey, you can find a popsicle to satisfy your craving!  I’ve came across a few mouthwatering recipes that look absolutely delicious that I wanted to share with all of my fellow popsicle lovers!

  1. Tutti-Frutti Ice Pops.  For these you’ll need: a ½ cup of sliced strawberries, a ½ cup of sliced peaches, a ½ cup of blueberries, 2 sliced kiwis, and 1½ cups of coconut water.  You’ll need six ½-cup popsicle molds to divide your fruit among evenly.  Pour in the coconut water, place in popsicle sticks, and freeze your pops for 5+ hours. Chelsea Crockett - Nutella Pops Then enjoy!
  2. Sweet Tea Pops.  This may be the simplest treat to make.  All you need is to purchase your favorite sweet tea (mine is Gold Peak!) or make your own.  Then pour it into the molds, set popsicle sticks in, and set them in the freezer for a few hours!  So simple yet so delicious!
  3. Nutella Cool Whip Popsicles.  All you need for these is: a ¼ cup of Nutella, 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of cool whip.  Combine the milk and cool whip together in a mixer then whisk in the Nutella.  Pour them into the mold, place in the popsicle sticks, and freeze for 6-10 hours!

Side note: If you’re having trouble getting the popsicles out of the mold, run cool water over the frozen popsicles or run warm water over the back of the mold.  Both should help your pops slide out much easier!

Which one do you want to try for yourself?  Let me know below!

Enjoy! – Chels

I am a sucker for any food with the word “chocolate” in it. That being said, chocolate chip cookies are a particular weakness of mine. Here is a recipe for a bigger take on your average chocolate chip cookie…made in a skillet!

Ingredients:

  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter, divided and softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar9843402706_b19092a1ca
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • (optional) vanilla ice cream

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then use 2 tablespoons of butter to grease the bottom and sides of a 9 inch cast iron skillet. Add the other 8 tablespoons of butter and sugars to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat them together until it is light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla, then beat well until combined. Next add the baking soda, flour, and salt to a large bowl and mix to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix on low. Pour in the chocolate chips and mix on low. Press the cookie dough into the skillet and bake for 20 minutes until the edges are crisp and the cookie is golden. Take it from the oven and let it cool, then eat it with some vanilla ice cream!

This is a great sleepover or “girls night” treat. You can literally eat a giant cookie out of a pan! How great is that?!

XOXO, Chels

Nutella and peanut butter: the world’s best combination now in cookie form! When I heard about these cookies I knew I had to try them for myself. Thank goodness I did! They are delicious and all my friends looooove them. Here is how to make these chocolatey bits of joy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 -3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon saltdownload
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 room temperature egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set it aside. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter and both sugars. Beat on medium speed for about 5 minutes, until it is creamy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if you need to. Turn the mixer down to low speed and then slowly add the dry ingredients. Beat until just combined. Use a large wooden spoon to gently stir in the Nutella. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Measure out a tablespoon of dough for each cookie. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern on each and bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheets for about 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

These sound like the perfect late night munchy, or a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth!

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
