Homemade Marshmallows

Making homemade marshmallows is definitely for the more adventurous baker as it does require cooked sugar, a candy thermometer, and gelatin, but when you really get down to it, making marshmallows from scratch is pretty easy. These fluffy white babies are impressive floating in rich hot cocoa or a strong cup of coffee.

Easy No-Bake Cheesecake

Mr. BB’s favorite dessert of all time is cheesecake but sometimes I just can’t find the energy to put in all of the time required to make a traditional cheesecake. Luckily, he loves this no-bake version just as much as the traditional! I add in some mini peanut butter cups and chocolate shavings to make it extra decadent for my sweetie!
