It’s almost time for cookie exchanges and I couldn’t be more excited.

I love a good cookie exchange. Whether it’s boxes of rum balls, piles of hot chocolate cookies, stacks of snowball cookies, or platters of ambrosia cookies, I love seeing and sampling what everyone brings.

Bar cookies are always a fun option for cookie exchanges because they’re so quick and easy to throw together, but can be cut into any size pieces you like. This year, I think these pecan bars are going to be my cookie exchange go-to.

They’re chewy, sweet, and have all of the flavors of pecan pie without any of the hassle!

You know I absolutely adore the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, from my peanut butter cup cookies to peanut butter cup eclair cake

Nutty, chocolatey, and just slightly salty, peanut butter and chocolate hits all my favorite flavor notes.

These peanut butter cup brownies are a great way to showcase those flavors, and just like my Snickers brownies, they’re a great way to use up any leftover candy as well!

3 brown butter blondies stacked on a white plate.

I am really on a big brown butter kick right now.

Even though it might not be a “traditional” fall ingredient like pumpkin or maple, it goes really well with both of those things. Just give my brown butter rice krispie treats or brown butter pumpkin bread a try and see what I mean.

But brown butter is so good, it really stands on its own, too, making it a great flavor base for cookies (such as brown butter chocolate chip cookies) and these brown butter blondies.

These blondies are chewy, a little bit nutty from the brown butter, have a rich sweetness from the brown sugar, and are easy to adapt using your favorite mix-ins!

Oh, and you can make them, start to finish, in under an hour. What a win.

We’ve officially entered one of the seasons when there is always candy in the house.

With a school-aged kiddo, Halloween is one of the times of year when she comes home with candy for what feels like a week straight. And that’s without trick-or-treating!

I don’t mind having candy in the house, but at some point it stops feeling special and we all sort of forget about it. Which means that we still have pieces of Halloween candy left over by the time Valentine’s Day rolls around and we’re doing it all over again.

So I like to try to get ahead of things and line up a couple of recipes I can make that use up leftover Halloween candy. We still get to enjoy the candy, but in a way that leaves less of it sitting around for 4 months.

This year, I’m crossing my fingers for some extra Snickers bars so I can whip up a batch of these Snickers brownies!

We’re just over a month away from Halloween, but I feel like I’ve been seeing Halloween candy at the store for weeks now.

I’m not the only one, right?

With Halloween decorations appearing around the neighborhood and the new Hocus Pocus movie coming out, it’s time to start planning for that post-Halloween problem:

What do we do with all of this leftover Halloween candy?

These monster cookie bars are the perfect solution if you ask me. Whether you’ve got an excess of mini M&M’s or candy bars, you can toss just about anything in this recipe and count on it being delicious!

I have always had a thing for Rice Krispie Treats, which is pretty apparent if you take a look through the recipes here on My Baking Addiction.

In my opinion, there really is no easier or more delicious sweet treat than a combination of cereal and gooey, buttery marshmallows. It just works – which is why it’s been a crowd favorite for years.

I pretty much have a recipe for everything from Classic Rice Krispie Treats to fun and festive Halloween Rice Krispie Treats. But one of my very favorite cereal and marshmallow combinations doesn’t actually contain Rice Krispies cereal, but instead – Golden Grahams. 

Golden graham s’mores combine Golden Grahams cereal with melted marshmallows and pieces of chocolate to create the most delicious, crowd-pleasing, s’mores-inspired dessert bar – and there’s no campfire needed.

It’s finally starting to feel like summer here in Ohio, which typically means two things: The pool is officially open for the season, and you can find me in the kitchen whipping up all of my favorite summer desserts like strawberry tart, s’mores pie, and these lemon bars.

Not all of the recipes here on My Baking Addiction immediately become a household favorite, but this lemon bar recipe has been one of my go-to summer desserts for over 10 years!

The buttery crust, tart lemon filling and sweet sugar dusting is a match made in summer dessert heaven. Serve them chilled for the perfect ending to any summer meal!

We are a family of sugar cookie lovers. Chewy sugar cookies, soft sugar cookies, lemon sugar cookies – if it’s a sugar cookie, my family is going to love it.

But I am not always down with the time it actually takes to make sugar cookies, especially cut-out or frosted ones.

But these Sugar Cookie Bars? They hit our sugar cookie sweet spot and they’re quick to make.

I have made these countless times since I first shared this recipe back in the early days of My Baking Addiction and they have remained a favorite. They’re super versatile since you can top them with any seasonal sprinkles you like or color the frosting for everything from Halloween to the 4th of July.

I know your family will love these Sugar Cookie Bars just as much as mine does!

Plated cheesecake bars topped with various toppings: caramel, raspberry sauce, and fresh fruit

If you happened to catch my recipe for Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, you might remember me telling you that we like to treat our chiropractor to sweet treats.

Sure, those treats might help us out when we need to be squeezed into his schedule, but he’s also the absolute nicest guy. And not to mention, he’s very enthusiastic with with his dessert reviews – which is something that I just adore about him.

We took him several pieces of these cheesecake bars a few weeks ago and he hasn’t stopped talking about them since. Even proclaiming this cheesecake recipe to be better than his mom’s “blue ribbon winning cheesecake.” And I think that’s saying something.

Although these cheesecake bars are pretty basic, I think the crust is what makes them better than “blue ribbon winning.” It’s little on the thicker side, extra buttery, and the hint of cinnamon adds just a little something special.

I feel like we’re pretty much stuck in an endless winter situation here in Ohio.

Yes, I know it’s only February. And yes, I also know that us midwesterners should be used to these dramatic weather changes, but it’s still annoying and I’m still going to whine about it.

Guys, it was 65 degrees 2 days ago and now we are expecting yet another winter storm.

One thing I do love about snow days is that Elle and I can get into the kitchen and whip up simple desserts that she can make almost entirely be herself.

Easy recipes like peanut butter pretzel bars, rice krispie treats and these raspberry bars are amongst some of our snow day favorites.
