Its a Chocolate Covered Day…
How is everyone’s weekend going? Mine is going great! My in-laws are here and we spent the day hanging out and hitting up The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. Great stuff!! I didn't have too much time to take some food photos though but I did however find some time to try out some awesome new recipes. The football game was on with two teams Im neutral on, so this gave me a good 2-3 hours to test out some stuff.
Ive been wanting to try out these wonderful sounding recipes by Katie for awhile and in spirit of her amazing giveaway I decided to rock it out and have a chocolate covered kind of day!
First up, I made some 24 Carrot Cake Cupcakes. They are super moist and delicious. I added a ton of cinnamon to these muffins which was really tasty. I loved the chunks of carrot in it as it gave the muffin a really nice texture. Some of them I topped with some coconut butter as well. These are a keeper!
Next up, I really wanted to try the Love Muffins. I love this recipe because it’s versatility, although its great on its own too. Fabulous! I made a couple of versions, first up was the Elvis. Lots of peanut buttery banana goodness in these little muffs! Some I even topped with a quick peanut butter icing and some crushed banana and peanuts.
And I also had to try the Jelly doughnut version…
These recipes were all fabulous! And I knew that at the end of my baking extravaganza I would have to end the day with some babies. Peanut butter cup babies to be exact!
Overall Im so happy with all of these recipes! They turned out great and I loved the flavor and texture of them. None of them were overly sweet which was really nice too. So you can definitely eat them any time of the day. Thanks Katie for some great recipes!
How is everyone’s weekend going so far?? I’d love to hear what you all have been up to lately! Tomorrow is my family’s last day here so we are gonna just be hanging out and watching some football in the morning I think. Then after we take them to the airport its massive laundry and grocery shopping time for the week! Have a lovely weekend everyone!!!
Cool bar giveaway!
Awesome book giveaway..
