Crunchy Cranberry Muffins

After making white chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies, I was inspired to turn the recipe into a muffin. I had a bit of trouble at first trying to think of what to call these muffins, and finally settled on crunchy cranberry muffins in attempt to keep it short.

Just like the aforementioned cookies, these muffins have white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. They get their “crunch” from two other things: the course sugar topping and macadamia nuts (though these are optional – I tried them with and without, both are great).

Though these don’t have oatmeal like the cookies, they are made with whole wheat flour, allowing for a healthy treat!  (more…)

Mocha Layer Cake

It’s sweetened rather lightly, so don’t worry about this being a sugar-bomb! The icing is similarly light and sweet: it’s just heavy whipping cream with a bit of sugar.  (more…)

Chocolate Crème Brûlée (sort of)

I was a bit confused on what to name this recipe. In the cookbook that I originally found the recipe, they call it “very rich chocolate crème brûlée”, but I wasn’t quite sure if this was creamy enough to truly be called “crème brûlée”.

Although it wasn’t super creamy, it was definitely thick and rich, without being overly sweet. It reminded me of a cheesecake or chocolate mousse, yet still a bit different.  (more…)

I made this cake on Halloween, hence the orange, white and black sprinkles. You can just top your cake with oreo crumbles, or simply cover it with icing to keep the inside a surprise.
