Best of 2013: Recipes

Your favorites from 2013…. 

5.  Brownie Batter Fudge

An extra-rich chocolate fudge that gets its punch from some boxed brownie mix.

4.  Easy Peanut Butter Cookie Cake

I still remember the day I OD'd on this.  HIGHLY recommended.  Just make it.  Maybe you should share it though.  

3.  Brownie Batter Rice Krispy Treats

Again, extra-richness from some boxed brownie mix and a drizzle of chocolate frosting.

2.  Cookie Butter Muddy Buddies

Ironically, this was my first recipe of the year, posted on January 1st.  Something about powdered sugar, peanut butter, and then the crunchiness of Chex just equals a trifecta of perfection.
It's been awhile.  I need to make some muddy buddies again soon.

And, #1 on the list of favorite desserts this year……

1.  Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats

Your favorite was my favorite too!  Some of my recipes, I never repeat because I didn't love them enough or they weren't practical.  THESE are Rice Krispy treats that I've made again and again.  They would be excellent for a New Year's get-together.  Even as a gluten-free birthday treat if you use GF cake mix.  I'm so glad you all love these Rice Krispy treats as much as I do :)

Thank you so much for reading, pinning, and trying my recipes.  Even though I don't do it nearly enough, I love to create in the kitchen and I'm so happy to have a place to share these treats.

Here's to more sugar in the new year!

Here's the list of favorite desserts from 2012.  Any requests for 2014?  


  1. Those all look delicious! I'm especially drooling over that fudge though. I might need to make that for NYE :)

  2. Not to diminish how much the whole world loved your cake batter rice krispy treats, but I have to admit that I've made them AT LEAST 8 times for work/family/anything events, and each time, I've had to click back to your recipe to both to shop for the ingredients and actually make them... whoops.

    I also loooove the brownie batter treats!

  3. Yum to all of these especially the peanut butter cookie cake!

  4. Even though I feel like I can't possibly eat any more sugar, that first photo makes me really really want to.

  5. I might be able to take personal credit for each of those Rice Crispy recipes being on the list. I have made them A LOT this year, and instead of just writing the recipe down, I look it up on your blog EVERY TIME hahaha! I made about 4 or 5 boxes worth of Rice Crispy treats easily this year! :) I love both recipes, but the Cake Batter ones are definitely a crowd pleaser! :) I made one batch each for two of my classes as a reward; I made a batch for Thanksgiving, and I made a batch of each kind for my evening classes when I was in charge of part of the snack, and I made several batches for family get togethers! This was the year of the Rice Crispy at the Clark residence FOR SURE! LOVE THEM!

  6. I just read Meg's comment above, and I guess maybe we both are partially responsible for the Rice Crispy treats making the list, but clearly, it's because they are SO AWESOME that we keep making them and people keep eating them! :)


Comments make my day!
