Buddy the Elf Spaghetti Christmas Cupcakes

Buddy the Elf Cupcakes

“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”

On November 7th, 2003, the world was introduced to one of the most lovable Christmas heroes of all time- Buddy the Elf. It’s hard to believe the film is now 13 years old, but, then again, I’ve easily watched it well over 13 times. Buddy’s whimsical world makes it impossible to resist Christmas spirit- all the way from the “seven layers of the candy cane forest”, “through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops”, and finally arriving at the Lincoln Tunnel. The juxtaposition of Buddy’s festive innocence against New Yorkers’ rushed hostility is enough to get viewers laughing, but the visual of 6’3″ Will Ferrell in an elf suit doesn’t hurt either.

S’mores Whoopie Pies

S'mores Whoopie Pies

Happy November! The weather’s getting cooler (except I live in Florida so it is hot and humid actually,) sweaters are coming out (I’m wearing flipflops), and friends are gathering around campfires to roast marshmallows and make everybody’s favorite treat- s’mores! Funny enough, my friends and I tried to have a campfire the other day, but it got too hot and we decided to go inside in the air conditioning. So these whoopie pies were the next best thing! Chocolate shells, homemade fluffy marshmallow filling, and crushed graham crackers. They taste just like the real thing!

Whoopie pies have consistently been a fan favorite with my friends and family. They can be virtually any flavor, and there are endless combinations to by pairing different shells with different fillings. That being said, this s’mores recipe might be up there with my all time favorites in the world of whoopie pies. It really, truly, tastes like an actual s’more. All of the flavor components are there, and the marshmallow filling is the exact consistency of a gooey, toasted marshmallow. If you really wanna get crazy, you can take a kitchen torch to the filling before adding the shell on top to get that browned toasted goodness. I promise these whoopie pies will not disappoint.

S’mores Cupcakes

What says summer to you? Is it beaches and lemonade, swimming pools and ice cream, or is it campfires and- you guessed it- S’MORES. Everybody loves s’mores (okay, maybe some people don’t) and for me they remind me of summertime bonfires. I wanted to incorporate the flavors into a treat that can be enjoyed with or without the fire (since I don’t have a backyard). So I made these cupcakes! With a graham cracker crust, chocolate cake, a smooth chocolate ganache filling, and marshmallow frosting these are just like the real thing!

Oatmeal Cream Pies

Who didn’t love Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies as a kid? They’re the perfect texture- soft and chewy. They’re the perfect amount of sweetness. I have to avoid them in the grocery store, because I know if I buy a whole box I will eat the whole box.
But making them homemade? That’s novelty! You feel way better about eating 5 of them because you know they were made with love, and not in a factory. You’re following this logic, right? Click below for the recipe, and save them for yourself or share this classic treat with all your friends and family!
