Snack Cupboard Cookies

I don’t even want to write much in today’s post…. Seriously the more I talk and ramble on (even though I adore your beautiful faces) the longer it’s going to take you to make these cookies.

I know I often say, you need these cookies/cake/bread ( I heart carbs clearly) when I post a recipe– and I’m normally right … but this time, YOU ACTUALLY NEED THESE COOKIES, it’s like a do-or-die situation .. except not, and I could just be acting over dramatic or dealing with the effects of a major sugar high.


Now I must warn you – nothing about these cookies are healthy – except everything about them is delicious! Sweet – Salty – Chewy – Crunchy – YUM!

These are not the type of cookies, you eat if you want to be dainty over tea. No, no – these beauties are chock full of M&Ms, pretzels, Mini Rolos, Oreos & lays chips; they’re the type you face-plant into and eat cookie monster style not leaving a crumb of evidence of their existence.


Calling all major junkies … err … junk food lovahs – clear out your snack cupboard, it’s time to make coooooooooooooooooookies.

I blame the sugar … and m&ms … and rolo – they’re so little and cute.

Rice Krispy S’more Brownies


I need these brownies today — this weekend, I had a bit of a crisis … I set out to do my usual kitchen shenanigans and right in the middle of swimming in delicious baking …I ran out of flour.


How is that even possible?!!? In my kitchen, there are 5 things I never run out of :

  1. Butter
  2. Sugar
  3. Flour
  4. Eggs
  5. Wine

For the love of all that is delicious – WHO RUNS OUT OF FLOUR?!? So instead of being practical and going to buy some … I just drank wine.


Hence the brownies. Sweet Week , Monday saving trashed up brownies.

But not just any everyday-joe-schmoe brownies … these brownies are straight up craaaaazzzyy. Nutso. Not just filled with fudgy-goodness – but stuffed with rice krispy squares and then toasted, gooey marshmallows. Welcome to the crazy-train.
