    I love posts like these! I’ve made those snickerdoodles, and love them. :) I wanted to make the cake batter bark, but had a melt down in the store,because I don’t have a smartphone, didn’t write down how much chocolate I needed, and my husband said I was being ridiculous. It’s okay, my friend has a birthday the day after Christmas…what says happy birthday better than cake batter bark?

    Hi Jessica!

    I have been reading for a while, but I don’t think I have commented too often. Just wanted to say how much I appreciate the work you’ve put into your blog. I love your posts, your writing style, and of course, your amazing photos of your delicious food. Sometimes I think I go into a sugar coma just looking at your pictures – and I like it. ;)

    Happy holidays!

    I’ve made the “Crack brownies” as everyone calls them, but I messed up! For some reason I read it as having peanut butter chips – so mine had an added cup of peanut butter chips!! But they were devoured just the same ;)

    The better than crack brownies really are better than crack–not that I would know what crack is like… anyway, my husband could not quit raving about them and his coworkers thought I was a genius.

    So far I’ve made the fat, fluffy snickerdoodles (so yummy!) and the cake batter chocolate bark. The only problem I have with the chocolate bark is that the chocolates you used are super expensive, so I used the cheap semi sweet and white chocolate chips option. Many of your other top recipes are in my favorites to try still. :)
