Taste This: Almond Toffee Butterscotch Blondies Recipes

I used to have a hardcore blondie addiction in college. It was no joke. For some reason, I was in a blondie state of mind again this weekend, and decided to make a batch of Almond Toffee Butterscotch Blondies.

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm going to let you in on a few things.

 one: I usually add in things I love, rather than sticking strictly to a recipe. It makes for some interesting, but usually delish results. Like these.

 two: If you hate cake-y blondies and brownies, keep on pushin'. These are lighter than air and chock full of toffee, butterscotch, and more!

 three: We ate a good chunk of this blondie pie before I could get pics. The family and I couldn't wait to dive into it, so I had to just shoot the remaining half. But, you'd never know, until you saw this pic.

I loved these! And, the kids and hub agree, so that's a bonus. What I most liked, is that they aren't overly sweet and sugary. They're more subtle. Check out the recipe.

Sweet Idea: DIY Paper Cake Toppers

If you saw the cake topper I made for kiddo's 5th birthday, then you know I'm all about a fancy finish on a cake. Flipping through my Pinterest pics, I came across a few paper cake toppers that I love. If you've got skillz, a foliage-covered topper is a cool idea, and I love the happy birthday banner. Even the simple monogram makes me smile, and hellooooo script and flower topper!

Last-Minute DIY Sprinkle Heart Cake Topper

Around here, procrastinators are always welcome. We didn't even plan to make this cake until a couple of days ago. Well, today's Valentine's Day, and I've been in the kitchen with kiddo making and decorating a super simple box/mix cake to surprise Darren when he gets home.

Of course, I hit up my collection of sprinkles and sanding sugars for the occasion. Check out this cute video of her working her sprinkle magic on the cake. Look at those thick layers!

Anyway, I wanted a simple way to dress up a store bought or boxed cake that she could help me with. She's very into baking and making, so I wanted her to be more than just a casual observer in our V-Day treat.

So, I baked up two 6" cakes (they're the perfect size for our small clan), and she helped me frost and sprinkle the layers. Check out how we made this perfect little sprinkle heart cake.

A handheld KitchenAid hand mixer in a berry-licious hue is a perfect companion for colorful measuring spoons. Is there any cuter place to stash homemade cookies than a charming little cat cookie jar? I think not. This white ceramic Threshold cake stand and this vibrant Threshold stoneware pie plate are both great for displaying your sweet creations in style.

Of course, you need bakeware and appliances to whip up dessert-laden intimate dinners for your new better half. And friends will undoubtedly want to come over for lots of fun little parties. Roll up your sleeves and get to baking! 
What items do you think every newlywed couple must have? Your two cents could be worth $25! Swing by Target Wedding Registry, pick an item you love, and share the link here in the comments to enter to win a Target e-giftcard. I'll announce the winner here Monday, February 17th. Good luck!
