Healthy Chocolate Truffles

Three ingredient, sugar free healthy truffles @dessertfortwo

We are not going to say the ‘p’ word. Nope, we are not. We all know what a dried plum is, but every time you call it by its other name, somewhere, a vegetarian gets invited to another dinner party with zero meat-free options. Or yet another lunch with the boss to a restaurant where [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Blackberry Bonbons

White chocolate dipped blackberries @dessertfortwo

At this point, I probably owe Rachael Ray a drink. Or at least a very nice bottle of Tuscan wine. In every issue of her magazine, I find at least one gem to post here. I’ve shared her Raspberry Sorbet Watermelon Sandwiches and my all time favorite easy dinner: Charred Corn Tilapia lately. The woman [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Greek Yogurt Truffles

Yogurt-Truffles-4

I have long dreamt of yogurt truffles. Truffles are my favorite dessert to sneak when no one’s looking.  I slyly pop one on my tongue and it dissolves into bliss. My love affair with truffles was getting a bit obsessive. The heavy cream containers in the trash were judging me.  I knew there had to [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Mashed Potato Truffles

Mashed-Potato-Truffles-4

No, that’s not a typo.  I really used mashed potatoes to make truffles instead of heavy cream. And believe me when I say:  no one can tell the difference.  I served them to many discriminating house guests over the past month. I watched closely for a raised eyebrow, a slight frown, anything! to tell me that you can [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Red Velvet Truffles

Red Velvet Truffles DessertForTwo.com

In the South, it’s all red velvet cakes and coconut flakes for Christmas.  These go-to recipes must be on the table or nothing feels right.  However, I’m always looking for a twist on the classics and had the idea for red velvet cake bites instead of a towering 3-layer cake. You’ve got options with this [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Pumpkin Bourbon Balls

If you’ve never had a bourbon ball, it’s safe to say you’ve never spent the holidays in the South.  And for that, I’m sorry.  But but but, I’m here to remedy that.  Bourbon balls are easy to make (no baking required) and are addictively delicious.  They consist of crushed nilla wafers (the greatest store-bought cookie [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Salted Almond Brittle (easy!)

Salted Almond Brittle - DessertForTwo.com

I’m so easy lately.  Wait, that came out wrong.  Can I start again? I’m the queen of easy recipes lately.  First, I gave you sticky buns made in 30 minutes with the help of frozen puff pastry.  Then, I gave you macaroni and cheese that you make in a blender. A blender!  And now, I [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Peppermint Patties

Peppermint Patties - DessertForTwo.com

If we are anything in this house, it is mint lovers.  But, this wasn’t always the case for me.  I used to pick peanut butter cups over peppermint patties.  I used to skip over all of Giada’s recipes that used fresh mint.  All of that changed when I found out that Mr. Dessert For Two [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Texas Peanut Patties

Pink Peanut Patties - DessertForTwo.com

I’ve been re-living a cringe moment in my head the last few days.  I don’t know what brings these old memories back to the surface, but when it happens, it takes days to shake it off. When I was in college, I taught yoga classes.  The yoga classes were part of a general fitness program [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Thin Mints

Homemade Thin Mints - DessertForTwo.com

I’ve got a bone to pick with an 8-year old girl. Look, I’m not the jealous type, but I really don’t like other women cooking for my man. Sometimes Mr. Dessert For Two takes a break from desserts.  He resists the sweets that come out of my kitchen.  And yeah, it kinda bugs me.  It [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Cookie Dough Bites

Small batch of cookie dough bites - DessertForTwo.com

I like cookie dough.  You like cookie dough.  We all like cookie dough.  But let’s have some portion control, shall we? This recipe makes only 8 cookie dough bites.  If you are someone who eats cookie dough in secret, in fear of being considered childish for liking it, this one’s for you.  You can eat the [ Click to continue Reading! ]
