Sweet Treats Thursday

Don’t you just love October??
Seasonal candy is out– all over the place! Everything you see is some sort of spook! 
And you can just feel your creative juices gearing up for the Holiday season!!
You know that feeling? 
When you’re walking down the candy/baking aisle at the grocery store, and all of a sudden your brain is going about a thousand miles a minute, and you’re just thinking:
“oooooooh, I could make this with that, and I’ll need some of those for this, and wouldn’t these go great together???”

LOVE. IT. Love it. Best time of year, October through December! Enjoy it folks. 
Soak up every minute! 

Buy all of the seasonal candy and sprinkles. Grab the colored melting chocolates off the shelf, and stock up on cute cupcake liners and toppers!!! 
This is the dessert pinnacle of the year! Go crazy!
And by the looks of last week’s Sweet Treats Party, I think some of you already have!
Look at these! Aren’t they fantastic? Reese’s Owls by Inside Brucrew Life.
Nutella Puppy Chow, by Chef-in-Training.
Oh, Nutella. How I love thee.
And here’s another Reese’s (plus Butterfinger and Heath!) recipe: 
Halloween Candy Bark by Caramel Potatoes.
(You’ll need this one next week– all that leftover candy!)

Sweet Treats Thursday

I’m so glad it’s Thursday again. This is rapidly becoming my favorite day of the week– ’cause it really is like a party all day long! I just get so excited every time one of you links up! It’s like your really stopping by my house to hang out and eat dessert {which is totally what we would do if you really did come see me}.

Let’s go straight to the featured links!

Katie’s Cucina caught my eye again this week– literally. I could not resist this gorgeous photo. Does anyone else’s heart skip a beat when they see a dessert that looks this beautiful? I mean, just look at those raspberries! gah. Not to mention, it’s White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse! Only one of my top 3 flavor combos of all time!

This beautiful Oreo Cheesecake by Bites of Sweetness also made it on to my “recipes I hope to make one day” list {it’s at the bottom of the page}, and I’m thinking sooner than later! That chocolate glaze is stunning, yes?

I should tell you that I am quite the sucker for homemade Hostess Cupcakes, so when I saw these posted by My Sweet Creations last week, I knew I’d be featuring them! They look just right, don’t they?

If you’ve been featured, grab a featured button from the {Grab Some Buttons} tab at the top!

Ok, let’s rock and roll! I’m ready to see what you’ve got!! Read the rules and link it up!

(PS- I’m going out of town TODAY, so if I don’t get to reply to all of your comments or get around to commenting on all of your posts– I’m sorry! I’ll be better next week!)

1. Dessert-related posts only– you can link up photos, recipes, crafts that look like treats, whatever! As long as it’s in the sweet treats family.

2. Link back to a specific post, not your main page.

3. Please grab a button and spread the word!!

Follw me!
