Easy Italian Rainbow Cookie Cake

Love Italian rainbow cookies but don’t want the hassle of making them? Try this easy Italian rainbow cake that looks a tastes just like Italian rainbow cookies. 

Easy Italian Rainbow Cookie Cake 1

Bob’s mom makes the best Italian rainbow cookies I’ve ever had. What really sells me is that she makes half of them with white chocolate. Even though people argue that it is not real chocolate, white chocolate it is my favorite kind of chocolate. Unfortunately she does not share the recipe. But instead of attempting to come up with my own recipe for these cookies I cheated and made a layer cake version using boxed cake mix. When you can’t have the best, make it easy right? Fake it ’til you make it! I added almond extract, food coloring, and homemade white chocolate frosting to seal the deal. I could have used store bought frosting to make this cake even easier but I wanted white chocolate frosting, not regular chocolate. Feel free to go the store bought route if you’re not into white chocolate or substitute the white for regular chocolate in the recipe if you want to make it yourself.

Leftover Halloween Candy Layer Bars

Use up your leftover Halloween candy with these magic layer bars. Any combination of chocolate candy will work. You can even add candy corn if you so desire.

Leftover Halloween Candy Layer Bars

When was the last time you bought the exact amount of candy needed to meet the demands of all the trick-or-treaters that ring your door bell on Halloween? Chances are you either buy too little or too much, with most people landing on the side with excess. Other than picking out all your favorites to hoard, what are you going to do with it all? I say throw it all together and bake it into one glorious mess. With the help of a graham cracker crust and more sugar in the form of sweetened condensed milk this dream is a reality. I introduce to you the leftover Halloween candy bar layer bars. Use whatever assortment you have. In my case it was Reese’s peanut butter cups, plain M&Ms, peanut M&Ms, Crunch, Twix, Kit Kats, Almond Joys, Milky Ways, Snickers, and Hershey’s cookies ‘n’ creme bars. Since 7-layer bars have chocolate, nuts, and coconut I figured that diverse candy selection covered it all with a little extra.

Caramel Apple Oreo Truffles

You can make Oreo truffles out of any of the different flavors of Oreo. Try this caramel apple version, dipped in chocolate to resemble an actual caramel apple.

Caramel Apple Oreo Truffles 1

Happy Halloween! It seems fitting that today is also caramel apple day and since Oreo was thoughtful enough to make a caramel apple creme golden Oreo I went ahead and made truffles out of them. I even dipped them in green and light brown chocolate candy coating to resemble a caramel dipped apple on a stick. Or a green buckeye depending on how you look at it.

Chocolate Candy Corn & Creme Cookies

My favorite chewy double chocolate chip cookies get in the Halloween spirit when made with Hershey’s cookies and candy corn creme chocolate bars. 

Chocolate Candy Corn & Creme Cookies 1

I’m having a difficult time believing that tomorrow is Halloween. It doesn’t help that I am currently in LA where fall weather doesn’t exist, but I am joining my nephew Luke for his first trick-or-treat outing tomorrow. To help me get into the Halloween spirit I chopped up Hershey’s candy corn creme candy bars and added them to my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookies. I am not normally a fan of candy corn but I am fond of Hershey’s cookie and creme candy bars and the little specks of color were cute additions in these festive cookies. The sprinkles helped too.

Are you dressing up for Halloween?

White Chocolate Reese's Pumpkin Blondies 2

If you think the combination of pumpkin and peanut butter is weird, well then I am here to prove you wrong. The phrase “don’t knock it ’til you try it” definitely applies here. I saw the light a year ago when I first tried this combo in pumpkin peanut butter cups. Rich pumpkin, salty-peanut butter, and sweet chocolate. I see no problems here. Even bloggers such as Jenny (Picky Palate), Sommer (A Spicy Perspective), and Jessica (How Sweet It Is) are in on the pumpkin+peanut butter party so why arn’t you?

Sadly it took me another year to dabble with this combination of flavors again but it’s back thanks to the Reese’s orange-white chocolate pumpkin-shaped cups. You could of also use regular white chocolate Reese’s cups but the pumpkin ones are perfect for the season. I chopped them up and mixed them into the pumpkin blondie batter and then also pressed some into the top as well to make use of their cute shape.

White Chocolate Apple Blondies

Get ready for fall with these white chocolate, cinnamon-apple blondies. Topped with a drizzle of melted white chocolate.

White Chocolate Apple Blondies 1

A yea ago today, I was standing in front of a crowd presenting and defending nearly 7 years of research. A part of my soul on display. And it earned me a PhD. Yes a year ago today I defended my 189 page dissertation in a 45-ish minute presentation followed by an hour of questioning in order to stamp Dr before my name. Unfortunately I have not been able to take advantage of using the title as much as I would have hoped in the past year but I’ve definitely enjoyed this unconventional time off, post-grad school.

Today is also national white chocolate day and I love white chocolate. In honor of my doctorate anniversary I decided to combine it with apples because an apple a day keeps the doctor away – unless you happen to be one and then there is no escape! That was a terrible joke, my apologies. But I will not apologize for how good these blondies are. White chocolate, chopped fresh apple and cinnamon come together to make one chewy blondie with flavors fit for the first day of fall.

Caramelized White Chocolate Spritz Cookies

These caramelized white chocolate spritz cookies are not only amazingly delicious, they are helping to fight pediatric cancer. 

Caramelized White Chocolate Spritz Cookies 3

Let’s talk about the magic that is caramelized white chocolate and how it can save kids from cancer. I already am a huge fan of white chocolate and caramelizing never is a bad thing so when first heard the term “caramelized white chocolate” I knew I had to get in on it. Other than requiring you to hover near the oven for 3 to stir every 5 minutes for 30 minutes, it is actually easy to make. All you need is some good, real white chocolate (none of that candy coating stuff), a clean rimmed baking sheet, and a spatula. And an oven of course. I actually made mine in a toaster oven! Just please, please be sure there is not a single drop of water on any of your tools. Water will cause the white chocolate to seize which is not a fun time.

At first while melting the chocolate, it may appear a bit dry. Don’t worry! It will smooth out just have patience and don’t immediately toss it in the garbage (unless you got water in it, in which case you may want to start over). Every time you stir the chocolate around you will notice it getting creamier and tanner. After 30 minutes it will resemble peanut butter (a little darker than the pictures I have because unfortunately I forgot to take shots of the final product). Take a taste and get excited because that stuff is going into cookies!

Not just any cookies either, cookies for kids’ cancer. Starting this month for every OXO product sold with this sticker on it,OXO will donate 25 cents in support of pediatric cancer research as part of its $100,000* pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.

Raspberry-White Chocolate Icebox Pie

Is it a pie or is it cheesecake? Whatever it is, the combination of raspberry and white chocolate is undeniable. The vanilla wafer crust is worth attention as well.

Raspberry-White Chocolate Icebox Pie 2

(After I point it out, please ignore the chip in the plate pictured above. It saddens me but not enough to dispose of the plate.)

Two pies in one week, what is this madness?! But just wait this one is different. I thought that after heating up your oven making the peach pie you would not be keen to turn it on again for a prolonged period of time so how about a pie where all you have to bake is the crust? A delicious, vanilla wafer crust which blows graham cracker crusts out of the water pie. The filling requires no baking and actually reminds me more of a cheesecake than a pie. Raspberry-white chocolate cheesecake/pie or whatever you want to call it, just make it.
