Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies

Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies | www.somethingswanky.com

I love crispy, buttery chocolate chip cookies as much as the next guy (probably more, actually), but these aren’t them.

Butterscotch Butterfinger Rice Krispies Treats

Butterfinger Butterscotch Krispies Treats | www.somethingswanky.com

I am a Scotcheroo fanatic. I think peanut butter, butterscotch, and chocolate is possibly the best flavor combination in the world. It’s sort of revived my love for PB + chocolate. After nearly 5 years of dessert blogging, I’ve been a little burnt out on the peanut butter chocolate circuit for a little while. But […]

No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake with Dulce de Leche and Pretzel Crust | www.somethingswanky.com

The superstar key ingredient in this no-bake cheesecake is…. marshmallow cream! In a million years, I would have never guessed it would make such a big difference in my no-bake cheesecake game, but it SO does. In the past, I’ve found myself avoiding no-bake cheesecakes, because they never seem to turn out quite right in […]
