Chunky Dunks

I’ll be the first to admit I have a peanut butter and chocolate problem. My husband will be the first to console me and tell me, “It’s okay, honey.” We both seem to be a bit addicted partial to the flavor combo so I’ve made my fair share of goodies here in the Bitz & Giggles kitchen. Nothing over the top, though. Just a few recipes, like these cracker layer bars, soft batch cookies, brownie bowls, mason jar cake, ice {Read More}

Peanut Butter Fudge Mason Jar Cake

Guys, I’ve been craving sweets lately like nobody’s business. That’s not good. Why? Well, because summer is upon us. . .and that means shorts and swimsuits. Yikes. All winter I’ve craved comfort foods – noodle dishes, casseroles, chili and tacos. Aye yea yea (is that how you spell that?). And now that the weather is starting to warm up, I’m craving sweets. Like, four opened boxes of Oreos in the pantry, sweets. I don’t want to make full pans of bars {Read More}

Super Sweet Easter Treats

I can hardly contain my excitement! How IS it that Easter is just a little over two weeks away?  My husband’s family and my family are from the same hometown and literally live minutes away from each other. We’re so blessed to be able to see both sides of our family over every major holiday. I’m thankful for the holidays because they bring us all together. It’s crazy how busy life gets and how little we see each other, even {Read More}

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

I have to admit, I’m kind of a pushover when the kids ask for treats. If they come to me before dinner I’ll usually offer them a piece of fruit, and believe it or not, they usually take me up on it. I don’t know about you but when I see my kids eating fruit I do a secret little happy dance inside my head. Now, after dinner is a different story. Fruit just doesn’t cut it. They’re looking for a “real” dessert. And me? {Read More}

Patriotic Pops

Memorial weekend is really sneaking up on me fast! Does it feel that way to you? We’re planning to take the family up to our lake cabin next weekend. Since I’ve been sending the kids to school with their hats in the morning this week, I doubt there will be any swimming in the lake. Bummer.
