These Samoas Ice Cream Sandwiches are time-consuming, but the result is SO worth it. A little patience goes a long way in this copycat recipe that- in my eyes- rivals the original.
Of course if you don’t want ice cream sandwiches, you can simply make the cookies on their own. I myself saved a few for snacking on throughout the week.

As a candyholic it’s probably no surprise I’m obsessed with homemade Easter candy. I’ve never been a jelly bean girl, and let’s be real–the vast majority of other “Easter candy” is just regular candy with a bunny slapped on the packaging. What’s so special about that? I much prefer to go the DIY route and make my own Easter goodies. (I’m not mad about buying Easter candy on clearance after the fact, though.)
Here’s another good thing about making your own: since eggs are basically wonky ovals, making egg-shaped candies is truly the easiest thing in the world. The less you worry about perfection, the better they turn out. Round truffles are hard to get right. Egg-shaped ones? Not so much!

I don’t know about you, but as soon as spring rolls around, Peeps seem to mysteriously show up in nearly every aisle in the grocery store. So this week I finally gave in and bought a few of the famous colorful boxes — but of course, decided to gussy them up a bit.
My lollipop sticks have been calling my name lately. So I turned the Peeps into “pops”, melted a batch of white and dark chocolate, pulled out some of my sprinkles collection (this is a perfect way to use them up!) and went to dipping! I also ground up some graham crackers to make a Peeps version of my favorite s’mores pops. Sure enough, these were totally simple (and took about 10% of the time it takes to make cake pops!!). Perfect for making with kids, or for letting the “kid” come out in your friends and family as they enjoy these!

This Salted Caramel Chocolate Coconut Bark reminds me of a Samoa cookie! A fast and easy dessert!
It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit salty, with a nice crunch from the Chex cereal.

There's a brand-new attraction for chocoholics: Choco-Story, a New York City museum dedicated to the dark art and craft of chocolate, set up with renowned master chocolatier Jacques Torres. The exhibit, like its brethren in Belgium, Mexico, and elsewhere, is more a thoughtful exploration of the roots and development of chocolate-as-dessert than an all-out candy shop (although, of course, there's plenty of chance to satiate your sweet tooth while perusing the artifacts). It also highlights some unusual trivia about the beloved pick-me-up, which has come a long way from its ancient, ritualistic roots to the treats we savor today.
