10 Recipes On My "To Bake" List

10 Dessert Recipes That Should Be On Everyone's 'To Bake' List

I believe chocolate therapy is a real, thriving thing.


One thing I'm missing at school is my kitchen at home, but not nearly as much as I'm missing the home-baked sweets made there. I come across a lot of delicious looking recipes on Pinterest, and have started a baking board so I can make them the next time I'm home! Enjoy looking at these 10 recipes, but maybe not while you're hungry!

1. Soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

I "didn't like oatmeal" until about two years ago. Really, I just didn't want to try it. Now, I have to make up for all of those years and try these divine looking cookies. The best part about this recipe? No raisins!

2. Flourless pumpkin muffins

I'll do fall vibes (and smells!) any time of year. Also, they're flourless!

3. Brownie bottom cookie dough cheesecake bars

Starbucks used to sell a cheesecake brownie bar that was SO good, but I believe they have gotten rid of it as I never see them in the display case anymore. These look like the perfect substitute!

4. Cinnamon donut holes

My friend once made these for a holiday party, and they are gone within a couple minutes- and it wasn't because she didn't make enough! They were just that good!

5. Soft pretzels

Nothing can compare to Auntie Anne's, but these might do the trick until my next shopping endeavor at the mall.

6. Classic rice krispies

You really can't beat a homemade, classic Rice Krispie treat. This one specifically looks better than average, so I'm anxious to try it out!

7. Chocolate chocolate chip cookies

I'm hoping these are the solution to my horrible spending habit of buying double chocolate chip Insomnia cookies very often. These look just as delicious!

9. Funnel cakes

I'm very curious to see if homemade funnel cakes even compare to those at the carnival. With my baking skills, highly unlikely. But there's nothing some chocolate sauce and whipped cream can't fix!

10. Skillet s'mores

This will be perfect for the summer night I'm planning to have a bonfire, but then it starts raining.

If you weren't hungry when you started reading this article, I bet you are now! Please leave me a comment down below if you decide to try any of these recipes out for yourself! I would love to know your thoughts!

5 Things All Chocolate-Lovers Will Understand

Cadbury Eggs? Basically like crack.


Anyone who loves chocolate as much as I do will know the pure joy and excitement of... the day after Valentine's Day.

1. When hair salons or nail spas have Hershey's Kisses in a bowl

If you're a true chocolate fan, you'll understand the excitement of sitting down at a hair salon or nail spa and looking to your left or right and seeing a bowl full of shiny, silver-wrapped Hershey's Kisses. Us chocoholics find happiness in even the littlest things, and a Hershey's Kiss is enough to curb our cravings (at least for a little while).

2. When Easter time rolls around

I know that one of my favorite times of the year is around Easter, when the Cadbury eggs are being sold everywhere. C'mon, those things are like crack. Ask my mom, she feels the same way. The crunchy coatings surrounds the perfect piece of chocolate, and to top it off, they look cute in a clear glass bowl, too!

3. The joys of seeing chocolate brownie chocolate everything ice cream flavors

Sometimes when I go to ice cream shops, my heart beats a little bit faster when I see the chocolate ice cream, but not just ANY chocolate ice cream. I get excited about the chocolate ice cream that has brownies, and chocolate chips and anything chocolate. Top it off with some hot fudge and chocolate jimmies and you've got yourself perfection.

4. The excitement of the day after Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is for lovers. We all know this. But the day AFTER Valentine's Day is for us chocolate maniacs. Not only is everything leftover from the holiday, but it's all ON SALE!!!! That means as much chocolate as we can handle (and afford) at a discounted price! That's downright crazy!

5. Being able to share your chocolate with friends

Finally, one of the best parts of always getting excited to eat chocolate is getting excited to share it with other people. The only thing that's better than eating chocolate alone is eating chocolate with other people. You don't even have to talk to each other. You just have to enjoy the moment. Never skip out on indulging, even if it's just a tiny piece of chocolate. Anything helps.
