Top 10 Desserts of 2012

You can’t get away from the Top 10 lists of the year…Am I right?  It’s almost annoying, and I figured I’d start one here too…just to be annoying.  In all seriousness though, these are the things you NEED to be making/eating, our traffic (and hips) don’t lie about deliciousness.

TOP 10 must have sweets of 2012

Counting down like we’re watching your ball drop….

10. Peanut Butter Cup Martini – you guys love your liquor, and you love your peanut butter & chocolate – that’s why you made the Peanut Butter Cup Martini #10 on the list.  Creamy, peanut buttery, chocolatey, liquory…Does it get any better? Peanut Butter Cup Martini

9. Twix Recipe – What started out as a review for a pan turned into a recipe for homemade Twix Bars.  Oooh, love that cookie crunch with caramel and chocolate drizzle?  This one is soon to be your favorite. Homemade Twix Recipe


8. Salty Caramel Popcorn Recipe – A favorite among those salty and sweet combo feigns.  Coming to you from one of our favorite foodies and past contributors, Sheri.  We love her, and we love her salty caramel popcorn too.  salty caramel popcorn

7. Double Double Stuffed Peanut Butter Cup Oreos – This is one of those recipes that has you saying, out loud “HOLY CRAP!”  and getting a sugar high just looking at the pictures.  {are you shaking yet??} Oreo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cups


6.  Gingerbread Martini – This fabulous creation, as comfy and cozy as it sounds, was a real winner and you told us so.  Comments of you drinking this everywhere have clogged up our Facebook and Pinterest boards.  We love this bev too, and don’t think it should be drinked/drunk/drank all year long.  (I’m really annoying you grammar buffs right now, aren’t I?)

5. Unicorn Poop Cupcakes – I’m really not sure what to think about you people.  Either you’re all dreamers and love the pretty colors and mystical side of unicorns, or you’re all gross and disgusting.  This one has gone viral on Pinterest, and it’s just plain silly.  The Unicorn Poop Cupcake was made in Minneapolis at Nadia Cakes. It’s hilarious, and fun, with a touch of “hmmmm” – I suppose that’s why you guys love it so much.  Unicorn Poop Cupcake

4. Cheesecake Factory – The place you go when you want to be overwhelmed with delicious options.  Seriously, the menu is a little out of control, but it’s only because they keep coming up with amazing cheesecake creations.  I have ordered my favorite, the Mango Key Lime, a few times since my initial tasting and lust over it often, but apparently you guys are looking for help deciding on a slice too.  I’ve give you my top three options.  Mango Key Lime Cheesecake

3. Whipped Java – Here’s where we get to the good stuff – the liquor.  It’s always lovely when we can combine our two favorite things – booze and dessert.  Double Whammy on the taste buds.  This recipe comes to you from Smirnoff and includes their Whipped Cream Vodka.  It’s a lot like opening Pandora’s Box…Just sayin.Whipped Java

2. Giant Swiss Cake Roll – This one gets me drooling every single time I look at it, because I dream in Swiss Cake Rolls.  More of my delusional swiss cake roll story in the post, along with the recipe for this OHMYYUM spongy cake.  Giant Swiss Cake Roll

1. Stuffed Cookie Cups – This recipe came about when my husband had a late night craving for cookies.  My mind when crazy trying to modify regular chocolate chip cookies and came up with this concoction.  I’m amazed at how well they’ve done via social media, and how delicious they were in my mouth.  stuffed cookie cups
