Whoopie pies are a treat our family has made and enjoyed way before they became a ‘thing’ a few years ago. Today you can find recipes for so many flavors!

Peanut Butter Pumpkins #Choctoberfest

Peanut butter eggs are one of my favorite Easter treats, but I seriously struggle to get a nice, pretty chocolate coating on the outside.

Tandy Cake Whoopie Pies

Whoopie pies always make me think of home and family. We’ve been making them for years, but whoopie pies seemed to have really grow in popularity over the last few years. They were a special treat growing up, mostly because they require a few more steps than a normal cake or cookie dessert. But also […]

Spiced Caramel Chocolate Bark #Choctoberfest

Summer weather seemed to drag on forever this year, but it is finally fall. That took forever, didn’t it? I don’t know about you, but was over the super hot and humid days, so I’m glad we’re now in the 50s and 60s. (Though I will say… it can stay in this temperature range. I […]
