White Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cookies. Big and small, chunky or flat , crispy or soft...I love them all. Actually, we are a cookie loving family. Can I make a confession? Most of the time I bake a large batch of cookies, I store them in a Ziploc bag and then pack the goodies in the car. When we are out and about having some family time exploring and making new memories ..we make the memories with cookies on hand.

I did mention chunky right? These white Chocolate cookies are insanely good! The dough is my "go to" recipe. I have made them several times and it always turns out great.

I am over at A Little R & R , sharing this super yummy cookie recipe.

You can always skip the walnuts, if you are not a big fan. Use Pecans if that hits your fancy.

Hop on over to A Little R & R and grab the no fail recipe for White Chocolate Chip Cookies.

No Bake Cookie Butter Pie

Cookie butter, it is like a joy in jar! Not only that it is amazing with banana ( my favorite way to use up the spread), I love using it in desserts! While it finally cooled off here in Socal ( 80's..what a relief!) , it was around 90-101 degrees these past few weeks so I always look for ways to not heat up the kitchen.

I have made Cheesecake shooters before, every time I make it for friends and is always a hit. The Cookie Butter and Banana Blondies are also crazy good! Don't get me started with the Cookie Butter Roll Ups, easy and awesome for breakfast. Well, I can't actually decide if it should go on breakfast category or dessert, it is just good anytime of the day.

I am over at MY JOY FILLED LIFE, sharing my love of cookie butter! Get the recipe for No Bake Cookie Butter Pie HERE.

This is an easy, delightful after school snack and dessert. You can not go wrong with a bottle of cookie butter, the dessert ideas are plenty. I think the most challenging part in making this no bake pie is waiting for it to chill.  This creamy, tasty, thick and one good no bake pie will not disappoint!

Hop on over at My Joy Filled Life for the recipe!

Strawberries and Cream Popsicle

    I am over at My Joy Filled Life sharing this super delicious and refreshing popsicle. This week here in Inland Empire had been crazy hot. Last Monday was 111 degrees, it really felt like I was in Vegas. We will have another round of  crazy hot temperatures this week.

What better way to cool off during these hot summer days than a cold treat. If  you are staying in for a day and looking for a kitchen fun with your kiddos, try making Nutella Popsicle or Coconut Mango Cream popsicle. 

 The Best Layered Popsicle. Ever.

These layered popsicles are very easy to make. I did had the hard time choosing what layer I love most. The chunky strawberries or the creamy coconut milk layer.  They are both equally flavorful and compliment each other.

Hop on over at My Joy Filled Life and grab the recipe for Strawberries and Cream Popsicle.

 Flavorful layers of fresh strawberries and creamy coconut.

Monster Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I showed these cookies to Lily right after her nap and boy did she smile in delight.  She said...

"Mama , it looks so good and it is big" . "I like when you make cookies mama" .

I can't blame the kid, I would like and love the person who would always bake cookies for me. These huge, chunky, chewy and delicious cookies are so easy to make.  Instead of using sweetened chocolate bark, I used regular chocolate chips. Melted it, cooled it and chopped 'em into pieces. Not to be complicated in the kitchen but I wanted to see if the result would be the same or better.

The result. I fell in love with the cookie. There were huge chunks of chocolate and small pieces that just beautifully and deliciously incorporated with the oatmeal cookie.


3 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup, unsalted butter softened
1 cup white sugar ( can substitute for splenda or raw sugar)
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup, chopped walnuts
8 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips.


Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper. Melt the 8oz. bag of chocolate chips in increments of 10-15 seconds, mix  between melting. Or you can melt the chocolate chips in a bowl  on top of a pot of hot water. Transfer the melted chocolate chips on the prepared cookie sheet. Spread to make a layer. Let it cool, set aside and let it harden. When the chocolate chips solidify, roughly chop it into chunks. It doesn't have to be uniform. Mine had small and big chunks.

Line your cookie sheet with parchment or silicone liner , set aside.Cream butter and sugars until smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.  Add the dry (flour mixture) ingredients into the creamed butter mixture. Stir in oats and walnuts. Fold in the chopped chocolate chunks. Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using an ice cream or cookie scooper ( I used a 2 tbsp ice cream scooper), drop the cooled, rounded dough onto your prepared cookie sheet, at least 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. 

These cookies are gooey, chunky and oh..delicious! These monster oatmeal chocolate cookies will surely win anybody's palate. What's not to love? 

Though I seldom meet a cookie that I don't love, there are some exceptions to the rule. I'm not a big fan of really hard cookies or cookies that claim to be chocolate chip cookie but you rarely see the chocolate..chocolate chips that go hide and seek on you. I guarantee you that ..THIS cookie is not the "hide and seek chocolate chip" type of cookie.

I would love to connect with you!

Heart Rice Krispies

I've never met a kid who doesn't like rice krispies. It is one of the easiest sweet treats that you can make in a jiffy. It only involves a very few ingredients. I decided to add a little bit of vanilla but you can always skip it and just stick to your 3 ingredient rice krispies-- rice krispie cereal, marshmallows and butter. If you don't mind your hand getting sticky , this is such a treat and a fun experience for kids too! Involve them in making and watch them enjoy in delight.

For hearts day, let's be a little creative ! Use a heart shape cookie cutter and with a little drizzle of candy coating, this will surely make your special one smile!


6 cups, rice krispie cereal
5 tbsp butter
8 cups, mini marshmallows
1 teaspoon, vanilla extract

optional : red candy melts and sprinkles of your choice.


Spray 9x9 glass dish or any pan that you have  with non-stick spray, set aside.
In a large pot, over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Once butter is melted add the mini marshmallows. Stir in the vanilla extract.

 Stir constantly until marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat and stir in rice krispie . Mix until the rice krispies are well coated with the marshmallow mixture. Turn the stove off and put the rice krispies in your prepared pan ( sprayed with non stick). Press evenly and let it cool.

I used two heart shaped cookie cutters, one larger size and a small one.

Perfectly cute!

Melt your candy melts according to package instructions.

Using a spoon, drizzle your cut out rice krispie hearts with the red candy coating. It doesn't have to be perfect.

While the drizzle is still wet, sprinkle the hearts with your favorite sprinkles.

Let it dry.

Simple and yet it is made with love. You can drizzle it with chocolate too!

How cute are these? Place it in cute boxes and I'm sure it will make your Valentine smile.

Chocolate Mini Heart Cakes

   I think it was mid January , when I started seeing Valentine's Day products and goodies.  My first thought was , wow I was still recovering from Christmas and New Year.  Second thought , " what to make..what to make ". Since our girls are literally in love with cake pops , this chocolate mini heart cakes has almost the same steps as the Santa Hat Cake Pop Tutorial. You can still use a box of cake mix or use your favorite cake mix recipe. I used a tub of store bought frosting however I only used about 1 /4 cup and 2 tbsp. Just save the rest for sugar cookie recipe.

    If you plan on giving some love to your kid's friends, your friends , your hubs this Valentine's Day, make these easy and affordable chocolate mini heart cakes. I should warn you though, it is really delicious so resist the temptation of eating 'em ..all by yourself.


1 Cake Mix and all the ingredients that you will use to bake the cake.
1/4 cup cake frosting plus 2 tbsp
1 package of red candy melts


Make the cake pop dough .For step by step instructions  , See it HERE.

Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper . Flatten your dough . You can use a wooden rolling pin or just a plain glass. It doesn't have to be perfect  since we will be making cut outs.

Using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter , start cutting out the shapes. 

Carefully , place the hearts on a separate plate or cookie sheet.

What I love about the dough is that , they don't stick to the cookie cutter. How cute are these?


Do not throw the  left over dough or sides, just simply roll them again in a ball and flatten it out again. I was left with a few dough cake mix, so I just press it all inside the cookie cutter.  All of your cake mix dough are used!

 Besides, you wouldn't want to throw that goodness away!

Melt your red candy melts according to package instructions. Be careful not to overheat them. You can add 1 tbsp of vegetable shortening if your melts are too thick.

Using a spoon, carefully dipped your chocolate hearts into your melted candy melts. I used a candy melt warmer. It's cold in our house and it will affect the consistency of your coating. However, if you don't have any warmer just a plain old bowl would work . Just re heat when needed.  You can purchase the warmer HERE.

They are delicious!  You can use your favorite sprinkles or decorate them anyway you like.

Our girls absolutely love them! Loved their smiles, when they saw what I made for them.  Since, you will be able to make a lot of these ( depending on the size of your cookie cutter) and they keep well in the fridge , place chocolate mini heart cakes with a note for your kid's lunch. Instead of a cookie for a treat!

You can also skip the dipping part and just drizzle the melted candy melts on top of the hearts! They are really good anyway you like it. Use melted white chocolate or dark chocolates, the options are too many!

Don't get stuck and never settle with a store bought boxed chocolate treats for your love ones! For under $10.00 , you can make a bunch of these little yummies.

Enjoy decorating your mini heart cakes! Use red velvet, yellow cake or even vanilla flavor cake mix!

Pin for later!
