Father’s Day was a few weeks ago, and we decided to make brownies for my father-in-law. He’s a huge cherry fan, so I wanted to add a little something to the brownies to make them even better. Candied cherries seemed like a great idea. Don’t Candied Cherry Brownies sound delicious? They were. And he loved them. We received the candied cherries from Paradise Fruit Company, who was kind enough to send me a few different…

So around my house, banana bread doesn’t last long. Everyone’s scrambling for it, especially warm out of the oven. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with a good batch of regular ole’ banana bread, I wanted to try to spice things up a bit. Enter Banana Fruit Bread. Great idea, since I have a few containers of candied fruit that a wonderful company called Paradise Fruit Company was kind enough to send me. They have…

Being a typical female, I have a decidedly intense love of chocolate. Combine that with cookies, and I’m a goner. So when I was making those Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies for my husband, I thought I might make a batch of cookies for myself as well! Treat yo’self, right? I did a bit of brainstorming and browsing of my best friend, Pinterest, and I came up with that holy combination of cookies and chocolate.…

One of my husband’s favorite cookies is the peanut butter cookie. He loves the crisp crunch when he bites in and the smooth peanut butter flavor that follows. Since Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, and I have some Chocoley chocolate left over, I decided to make him some peanut butter cookies and dip them in chocolate. Yum. I won’t lie – I was definitely excited about this too. And so were my boys. My…

Christmas came early for me here at Baking Kneads! A company specializing in melting chocolate, Chocoley, sent me 2.5 pounds of their Bada Bing Bada Boom Gourmet Compound Chocolate Candy & Molding Formula in White. (I’ll be posting a couple more recipes in January using more of their chocolate in Dark!) I was able to make three recipes, plus a bonus, out of the 2.5lbs that they so kindly sent me! I have so many…

Nothing says Christmas like a tasty candy cane, right? For a third treat for the Christmas treat bags I was putting together, I wanted something that would be easy and look cute to go with the White Chocolate Cheesecake Pops and the Cookies and Cream Fudge. I found a recipe for Candy Cane Heart Peppermint Bark. Perfect! Cute AND easy. Chocoley provided the melting chocolate for the insides of these hearts. They sent me 2.5…

Y’know what sounds decadent and delicious? Fudge. Rich, dense, and velvety on your tongue. Combine that with a tasty cookie (how about an Oreo?), and you have yourself a creamy, crunchy, Cookies and Cream Fudge. This fudge was the second thing I decided to make using Chocoley’s amazing melting chocolate. They sent me 2.5 pounds of their Bada Bing Bada Boom Gourmet Compound Chocolate Candy & Molding Formula in White. Their chocolate has no hydrogenated…

I’ve used candy melts, or melting chocolate, in the past, with mixed reviews. The one that comes to mind is when I coated marshmallows in teal melting chocolate, finishing them up with candy eyes to make them look like little aliens. These were done for my older son’s 1st birthday a couple years ago. Don’t get me wrong – they looked great! They were adorable. I don’t have pictures, unfortunately. I always have a hard…
