That is until I saw this adorable party from KitchenTrials! X’s and O’s – what a perfect, sweet party theme for a first or second birthday party, or a baby shower! Not only.

This is an awesome charitable activity to get behind. It’s fun to participate in and there are so.

Superheros never go out of style and as each new generation of young people grows up, they reinvent and reproduce superhero stories, movies, cartoons and comics all over again.

Word puns are so much fun. Especially when they involve candy, which is why I LOVE these purple tags from Bombshell Bling.

That means you don’t have to pay anything for them in.

Reese’s Pieces plus Cocoa Puffs plus Marshmallows! This is a combination that I never would have thought of myself. Whenever there are Cocoa Puffs in the house, they’re gone in less than 60 seconds so I’ve never really had any around long enough to ponder what to mix them with, other than cold milk.

Dark Chocolate Bark with chopped Oreos, salted caramels and pistachios? This looks like a great combination!

After eating this, you’ll seriously never want to just get regular Tin Roof ice cream from the store again. From this point forward, you will only want this amazing Tin Roof Sundae Pie from Cookie Madness. Tin Roof Ice Cream is one of my absolute favorite kinds of ice cream.

What a fun party theme for today! I love looking at all of these Knights and Dragons parties – they are so creative! Knights and Dragons (or Knights and Princesses, if you’re having a co-ed party) is a theme that you can really get carried away with.  There is so much stuff out there that goes with this theme, the decor should be a cinch and games and activities are.

How About a Beetlejuice Theme?

Yes, we know this theme is not for everyone. In fact, there are probably very few people in the world who could pull off something as extreme (and awesome!) as a Beetlejuice themed wedding. But what fun would writing a weekly column called “Event of the Week” be if we didn’t include some of these offbeat, non-traditional events every now and then? Not everyone wants to wear white to their.

J was a toughy to come up with a party theme, I must say. But I know we have a good one. A Japanese Tea Party theme is the perfect theme for so many occasions. Little girls are getting into tea parties lately, and this is a fun way to introduce them to some new things. Adults like tea parties, too. And this can be a wonderful theme for a.

This one honestly makes me a little squeamish. Those of you who know me personally know that I HATE insects. Spiders, beetles, ants, flies, worms – they all make my skin crawl and give me nightmares.

I’m a big fan of the “blondie.” It’s like a brownie, but with more of a brown sugar / white chocolate vibe to it than a traditional chocolate brownie. Hence the name, duh! If you’re like me and you will eat anything with butterscotch in it, then these delicious Marshmallow Blondies from Cookies and Cups are just right for you. This recipe not only includes butterscotch (under represented in the.

What is it about Hello Kitty that we all love so much? I think partly it’s the simple design of Hello Kitty itself – round white head, black circle eyes, whiskers, bow. It’s low fuss but adorable and easy to look at. It’s no wonder that Hello Kitty is such a popular party theme for the under 8 kids circuit. It’s very girlie, very pink, oh-so delicate and precious and.

With the NFL draft last night, I think football is on our brains. Even though football season doesn’t start for a few more months, we’re all pretty excited right? Johnny Football looked humbled last night for the first time in his life. Does Cleveland have a lot more fans suddenly? So, now is the time to talk about a Football party. Why? Because it’s the F week in our list..

Are you addicted to Trader Joe’s Cowboy Bark yet? It’s a dark chocolate bark with pretzels, toffee, Oreos and other goodies and it’s basically taking over my snack cravings. So when I saw this recipe for DIY Cowboy Bark on AverieCooks.com, I freaked. Could it be possible to replicate such perfection in my own kitchen? Yes, friends. It IS possible.

I am pretty sure this is my favorite party theme of all time. And after ogling these party pics all weekend long, I’m miffed why we don’t see Stock the Bar parties more often. Have you not heard of a “Stock the Bar” party? Here’s the scoop on what it is: Basically a bride and groom will have a joint shower (hosted by a member (or members) of the wedding.

Welcome back, readers and friends! It’s time for another A to Z post. Today’s theme – E for Elephants – sounds narrow, but is actually such a broad theme that you can do so much with it. Here are some reasons why we love an elephant theme: – Traditionally, elephant-themed parties are reserved for baby showers or first birthday parties (boy or girl – this is a great gender-neutral theme),.

Today we’re talking about really fun different ways you can throw a Dora the Explorer themed party for your little girl. Here’s what I love about Dora: – She’s diverse!

Sorry.

These little treats are so much fun! I love the Robin’s Egg surprise in the middle – it makes it that much sweeter, don’t you think? There is a trick to.

I am loving all of these yummy spring-timey recipes coming out, aren’t you? So many cakes, bars, cookies and treats with pretty pastel candies! For example, I LOVE these confetti bars from ChelseasMessyApron.com – These are kind of like Blondie Bars with white chocolate chips, marshmallows and Pastel M&Ms on top. Don’t they look perfect for a sweet Easter dessert, or for a baby shower or bridal shower? To get.

Easter Candy Craft Idea – Peeps and Jelly Beans Flower Arrangement!

These are super popular this year – a flower arrangement where you stuff Peeps and other sweet things in the bottom and put pretty Easter flowers on top. Some people think this is sacrilege – how could you use Peeps for decor and not for eating!?!? But I happen to think it’s great because (to my taste buds) Peeps make better decorations than treats. The image above is from The.

Wow, we’ve made it to Z! Hard to believe that we’ve gotten through the entire candy alphabet already! After today, we’re going to put Candy A to Z on a hiatus for a while and allocate our Friday posts to a new topic (to be announced next Friday). We will certainly bring A to Z back in the future, although it might be a different topic – like Event A.

This is one of the most adorable, sweetest parties that I’ve ever seen. It is for a precious little girl’s first birthday and has just all of the most perfect Cinderella details imaginable. Cinderella is such a classic Disney Princess, but we don’t really see so much of her for party themes these days. Frozen has kind of taken over the party circuit (which is cool, we LOVE Frozen), but.

Candy A to Z: Y is for Yum Junkie Candy!

We’re getting close to the end of this Candy A to Z countdown, and these letters at the end of the alphabet are making things kind of tough. I almost skipped “U” all together. But today’s letter is Y, and that gives me a unique opportunity to talk about not just one candy, but a brand of candy called Yum Junkie, and why I love this brand so much. Yum.

I think almost every recipe that I post on here is a pantry-cleaner-outer.  Oh well! Those are the best kind of recipes, aren’t they? Take a look at these “5 Chip Cookies” from CookiesAndCups.com. How could you not want to empty those shelves full of multiple kinds of chocolate chips and make these delicious cookies? These cookies call for milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, vanilla chips, butterscotch chips and.

You guys, I love a nautical, beachy, under-the-sea themed party.

Today’s Event of the Week takes this theme to a new level by heavily focusing on cute, adorable whales are the centerpiece of the decor and theme. This party is from an.

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/airheads_belts.jpgCandy A to Z: X is for Airheads Xtremes Sour Belts!

Today’s Candy A to Z is the letter X – so that can only means we’re featuring an Xtreme candy like Airheads Xtremes Sour Belts! These have gotten super popular for candy buffets lately. The rainbow colors make it a perfect match for so many themes.  Plus, kids (and adults) LOVE the fruity flavors that pack a big sour punch. These are also great because they’re inexpensive and you get.

There aren’t many weeks until Easter, so we’re going to spend some of these days sharing with you easy DIY crafts for Easter gifts that include sweet treats.

Cadbury Mini Egg Blondies – Recipe of the Week!

http://www.sweetcitycandy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/dreamstime_1631806.jpgCadbury Mini Egg Blondies – Recipe of the Week!

Easter is coming up so soon, which that means we’re getting our annual fill of Peeps, Jelly Beans, Cream Eggs and bunnies! My personal favorite are the Cadbury Mini Eggs. I think the creamy chocolate and hard candy shell is just perfection. And I think the addition of some Cadbury Mini Eggs into Blondies is also perfection. Chef in Training has an amazing recipe for these Blondie Bars that are.

Who else has a little boy obsessed with Angry Birds? My son is so obsessed he has Angry Birds underwear and I have to remind him not to pull his pants down to show everyone which bird is on his cool undies each day. I’m pretty certain that when his birthday comes around this summer, the party that we have will be an Angry Birds theme, so I’m spending a.

Do certain candies just bring you right back to a time and place of your childhood? For whatever reason, the only time growing up that I would ever get Necco Wafers was during our annual summer trip to my grandparent’s house. They lived in a teeny-weeny farm town in the middle of nowhere and would give my sister and I $1 to share and off we went to the “dime.

Ya’ll know me, I’m a sucker for S’Mores. So when I saw these cupcakes on Bakerella.com it was a delight to my eyes. Bakeralla is one of my absolute favorite sites. Her recipes and photography are just unbelievably mouthwatering and talented. See what I’m talking about? I think these days when people are going to culinary school, there must be Photography 101 and 102 requirements, because food bloggers these days.

St. Patrick’s Day is soon, friends. Are you ready? You’ve got less than 2 weeks to get it together and create a great St. Paddy’s Day party. Lucky for you, we’re here to help out.

Today’s candy might be a new one for many of you. Lots of the candy on our A to Z list are quite common, everyday favorites, but today’s candy is a bit of a throw-back. C. Howard’s Violet Mint Squares are truly a one-of-a-kind candy. They’re little mint squares with a distinctive flowery violet flavor and have been around since the 1930s. It appears as though the packaging has been.

You guys, look at this awesome idea from TheGunnySack.com! You get jumbo balloons, put candy in them, blow them up, decorate and place in the Easter basket! I’m freaking out over the combined genius and cuteness of these things! You know what else I absolutely love about these? Wouldn’t they be awesome for a creative birthday party goody bag?

Last week we featured some Mardi Gras party ideas for a very colorful palette with a worldly celebration in mind (think Rio, Germany, Spain and other parts of the world that go hog wild for Karneval in bright colors). This week we’re going to tell you about another color palette for Mardi Gras – this one leans a bit more towards a New Orleans theme. You’ll often find many Mardi.

Do you want to see one of the sweetest party themes of the year? It’s this whimsical, airy, fanciful Cotton Candy Themed Party from our friends at Party Pants in Rhode Island! These photos (taken by Michael J Larson Photography, also in Rhode Island) have such a graceful, light touch to them, its like floating through a pink-shaded dream. I can almost smell the deliciously sweet cotton candy flavor just.

Candy A to Z: U is for sUper Blow Pops!

Candy A to Z: U is for sUper Blow Pops!

I really had a hard time coming up with a “U” candy for this A to Z candy countdown. I almost gave up and was going to skip the letter all together, but I think my creative work-around will do the trick. Who doesn’t love Charms Blow-Pops, anyway? And who wouldn’t love one of their SUPER Blow-Pops? You know, the ones that are super-sized to be about twice the size.

Get ready people, Mardi Gras (or Karenval / Carnival, depending on what part of the world you’re in) is coming up quickly.  Are you having a party? Did you know that candy is a HUGE part of this celebration? They don’t just throw beads from those floats, you know. I was at a Karenval parade in Cologne, Germany a few years ago and nearly got decapitated by a 1/2 pound.

Happy Monday everyone!  We’re so excited to talk about a Minnie Mouse birthday party (or baby shower) today. Minnie Mouse is such a classic party theme for little girls and can be among the most fun and simple to put together.  Party colors include Red, Black & White, with a little pink thrown in for good measure. We’ve scoured the web and have been working on our Pinterest board to.

I’ve been looking forward to the “T” day of our Candy A to Z countdown so I can talk about how much I love Twix. Not only are they a perfect balance of chocolate, cookie and caramel but you get TWO Twix per package. How can you not love something when it feels like you’re getting double what you paid for? Not only are they good on their own, but.

We hope you all feel loved on this Valentine’s Day! Here is a poem just for you called “Candy Love” by Terra McDonald. Fly away with me my dove To a forbidden place where the skittles meet the rainbow Lay under the milky way with me And lets gaze at the star burst together Just you and me, sweet bliss When the moon begins to eclipse we’ll be in each.

Are you kidding me? Look at this masterpiece!   I think calling this a “salad” is bit of a stretch, because this Snickers Caramel Apple Salad is clearly a decadent dessert. With Snickers Bars, Caramel Sauce, Vanilla Pudding, Cool Whip, this is clearly a crowd pleaser. This recipe comes from an excellent website – Chef In Training – and everyone should bookmark it immediately.  Some seriously great recipes here. Anyone.

Frozen has completely taken over these days.  And I’m not taking about the frozen tundra polar vortex type of “frozen” either. I’m talking about the awesome Disney movie about Anna and Kristoff who set off on a journey to find Anna’s sister, Elsa, who has trapped the kingdom in an endless winter. Although the whole “trapped in an endless winter” thing sounds pretty familiar, doesn’t it? I think its encouraging.

Sixlets are an amazing little candy. They are one of expert event planners’ top secrets in creating a beautiful candy buffet. They are perfect little candy circles that come in an enormous array of colors that you can mix and match to make your perfect candy buffet color scheme. They are also fantastic additions to cookies, cakes and other desserts and can be used to make anything look extra delicious..

Wohoo!) so you have just over a week to get your stuff together to make or buy some fun and adorable Valentine’s from friends, family and lovers. We’ve come across some really excellent ideas out there and wanted to share a few with you to get your creative juices flowing (or better yet, do what I do.

White Chocolate Covered Pretzels with Biscoff Filling!

I know that Biscoff spread isn’t a new thing, but it’s kind of a new thing to me. I don’t have much experience with this delicious, butter cookie flavored spreadable substance but it seems to be all the rage on the plethora of baking and dessert sites that I troll endlessly day after day. I know Biscoff mainly because it seems to be the cookie-of-choice for airlines when passing out.
