A Sweet Treat For Your Tuesday: Campfire Cones

Well. It’s summer time!! YAY!!

Which means camping… or atleast campfires!

And in my books campfires = s’mores

This year for our camping trip we decided to try something a bit different when in came to the s’mores.

About a month or two ago my husband showed me a picture of these icecream cones stuffed with chocolate and marshmallows, and that idea stuck in my head so I decided to give it a try!

Here’s what you need:

  • Icecream cones (I went for waffle cones because they are way better than plain cones πŸ™‚ )
  • Chocolate of your choice
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Any other fun fillings
  • Tinfoil

You can make so many different types of these campfire cones. I made four different kinds: reeses cups, oreo, m&m, and classic s’more.

It’s super simple. Take one waffle cone add in the fillings you would like… marshmallows, chocolate, etc. Then wrap the cone up with tinfoil! Done!

Take your pre-wrapped cones with you camping and set them on the grill of a fire pit for 5ish minutes (or until the marshmallows and chocolate are melted). And enjoy!!!

Yum!! These are a great twist on the classic s’more πŸ™‚ And not to mention a whole lot less sticky to eat!

Happy Tuesday!

A Sweet Treat for your Tuesday: Reese’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Reese's Peanut Butter and Chocolate CookiesAnother chocolate peanut butter combination; what could be better for a Tuesday treat?!

This is a cake mix recipe… which I LOVE for a few reason: its super easy and quick, and the cookies turnout so soft and chewy!

I’ve shared a few other cake mix dessert recipes, homemade oreos and baked donuts, and this one is another winner πŸ™‚

Not to mention the perfect colors for the season!!

You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter, especially when we are talking about reese’s cups or reese’s pieces. This recipe includes both!! YES!

This is such a simple cookie recipe because of the cake mix, all you need is: 1 box of chocolate cake mix, 1 egg, 1/3 cup of butter (melted), 1 cup of reese’s cups (I chopped mine up), and 1/2 cup of reese’s pieces. That’s it!

Reese's Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Mix all your ingredients, adding the reece’s pieces and cups last.

Your dough combine without getting too sticky.

Reese's Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Roll your dough into balls and flatten.

I use a cup with a bit of non-stick spray on the bottom, works perfectly!

Reese's Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Bake at 350 for 7-10 mintues. I like mine chewy and soft so I usually go closer to the 7 minute mark πŸ™‚

And ENJOY!!! These are super tasty, you really get that peanut butter taste with the two types of reese’s candy. Y.U.M.

A Sweet Treat for your Tuesday: Apple Crisp

sweetnsimpleblogMmmm Apple Crisp!!

We enjoyed this with our Thanksgiving meal this past weekend, YUM!

Apple crisp is the perfect fall dessert! The apples, the cinnamon, the oatmeal/brown sugar crisp on top all makes it the BEST!

I was set on making apple crisp for Thanksgiving dessert, so I did a bit of looking around for a good recipe.

I couldn’t find one that looked all that good and was also simple… with LOT of extra ‘crisp’ part of the apple crisp …so I made up my own recipe using all the basics: butter, brown sugar, oatmeal, flour, cinnamon, and apple.

Apple crisp - sweetnsimpleblogFirst things first, peel and chop up your apples. You can choose any type of apples.

With the chopped apples add in 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Mix until the apples are coated and pour into a greased 9×11 pan.

Next the ‘crisp’. 1 1/2 cup each of brown sugar, flour, and oatmeal, plus 1 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.

Mix all the dry ingredients together, and cut in 1 cup of cold salted butter, until you get the texture of crumbs.

(I cheated and let my mixer do most of the work, and then broke apart any big pieces with my hands after)

Top with the butter/flour/brown sugar mixture, the ‘crisp’ part of apple crisp.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and crispy.

Top with ice cream and enjoy! YUM!!

Fall Flavors: Turkey Pretzels

Turkey Pretzels - SweetnsimpleblogWell… I had a bunch of extra candy left over from my Fall Candy Bark, so I figured why not make something with it!!

And what could be more perfect than something ‘Thanksgiving’ themed, seeing as it’s coming up this weekend.

Here is how to make Turkeys Pretzels!

There are a simple treat, what you need is: pretzels, rolos, candy corn, reeses pieces, candy eyes, red sprinkles.

Turkey Pretzels - Sweetnsimpleblog

Set up your cookie tray with some parchment paper (so that the chocolate doesn’t stick).

Lay out your pretzels, and place one rolo ontop of each pretzel.

I set my oven at 200 degrees C, just popped in my cookie tray and waited for the chocolate to melt a little bit.

You don’t want the chocolate to melt completely, just to soften up so that you can poke in the eyes, nose and tail πŸ™‚

For me that was about 4ish minutes.

I originally tried to make these with reeses cups as well, but they didn’t work so great… the chocolate reeeeally melted but then the peanut butter center was still really hard… oh well!! I just stuck a reeses piece on top and they taste amazing πŸ™‚

Once your rolo chocolates have softened poke in the candy corn as a tail, stick on some eyes and turn your reeses piece to create a beak.

I had leftover red leaf sprinkles so I used those as a giblet. But I think any red sprinkle would work just fine!!

This one is probably my favorite one! Love how his eyes make him looks a little crazy!! HA! So fun πŸ™‚

A Sweet Treat for your Tuesday: Fall Candy Bark

Fall Candy Bark - SweetnsimpleblogI would consider October one the the top three ‘candy’ months, of course the other two being December (Christmas) and March/April (depending where Easter falls).

I love these 3 months; there is always an extra excuse to do a bit of baking or treat yourself to something sweet πŸ™‚

One of my favorite chocolate treats at Christmas time (and there are many) is peppermint bark. It’s the easiest dessert to make and it turns out so pretty!!

Today’s sweet treat is inspired by peppermint bark… yes I know it not Christmas…. so here’s a fall twist on a Christmas treat.

Time for some fall candy bark!!

Fall Candy Bark - Sweetnsimpleblog

Seeing as there is so much candy around during this month… might as well make some chocolate bark out of it!!

Fall Candy Bark - Sweetnsimpleblog

All you need to do is line a pan with tinfoil or wax paper.

Then melt some chocolate. I used mostly milk chocolate with a few drops of white chocolate to swirl around.

Then take your favorite fall candy… or left over halloween candy (this is a great way to use it all up!!) and sprinkle on top!!

Let your bark set in the fridge… or freezer (if you are dying to speed up to waiting time and get to the snacking time!!).

Once the bark is hardened break into pieces.
