Sweet Potato Brownies with a Mocha Frosting

Sweet Potato Brownies with a Mocha Frosting

Treat yourself to these grain free, chocolately brownies packed with sweet potatoes and peanut butter. Smother them in a mocha frosting and enjoy!

Happy weekend, friends!

You know those days where you could eat an entire pan of brownies and be ok with it? No? Just me?

Well, you won’t feel bad eating half the pan of these Sweet Potato Brownies this weekend.

They’re packed with mashed sweet potato, peanut butter, cocoa powder and sweetened with maple syrup – pretty good so far, right? Top them with a mocha frosting, and you won’t be able to stop yourself from eating more than one.

We’ve made these without frosting before and they are insanely good, but with the frosting.. it seals the deal on these being my favorite brownies… ever.

Halloween Bark

This 3 ingredient bark is the easiest treat you’ll make this Halloween!

Eep, you guys. It’s already October. Where did September go?!

This is my favorite time of year. It’s not too hot, not too cold yet – but the sun is still shining.

Really, how could you not love when the leaves are a mixture of green, yellow, orange and red.

No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream

No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream

Thick, creamy strawberry ice cream filled with real strawberries, just in time for summer – no machine required!

Happy Friday! The best day of the week, yes? It leads right into the weekend, and for most – no work! Yipee. Which also means today is the day to make this No Churn Strawberry Ice Cream. It’ll be ready for Saturday afternoon. The perfect time to enjoy a bowl of homemade ice cream, in the sunshine – hopefully! My favorite part of this recipe? No. Ice Cream. Machine. Required! Yep, you don’t need an ice cream machine to make this amazing homemade ice cream. I love this cause’ I may have the smallest kitchen known to man and I 1) don’t have any counter space to spare and 2) have absolutely no storage space for another kitchen appliance. So, from here on out it’s no churn ice cream for this girl. I mean how could you even tell this wasn’t made with an ice cream machine?

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

Have you been following me on instagram? I’m going to assume all of you said yes! If you’re not you should, click here to follow! Anyways, I had made these marshmallows in Valentines Day themed sprinkles. I left them on the kitchen counter while I was at work for a day or so, I went to photograph them and it turns out Tom, my boyfriend, and his friend had munched the last couple marshmallows only a few days before Valentines Day!! So, these are no longer Valentines Day themed – Sorry! Although these sprinkles from Sweet Estelle make these marshmallows share-able.
