cinnamon toast crunch cupcakes

My favorite cereal growing up was Cinnamon Toast Crunch, so I was ecstatic when my friend found a recipe for cinnamon sugar cupcakes, filled with pieces of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal!

As I've mentioned before, I'm a huge chocolate lover so these didn't make my top favorite cupcakes, but all my friends loved them. They have the consistency of a muffin and could even make a quick breakfast if you want to grab one running out the door.

The cake is a vanilla cake with pieces of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, frosted with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting, and garnished with of course, a piece of cereal.


When my friends and I made them we didn't crush the cereal pieces up enough in the frosting, so make sure it's a fine powder, not just tiny pieces of cereal or else the frosting will be chunky and who likes that?

Happy baking! 

slutty brownies

Warning: if you're trying to get your bod into spring break mode, don't make these. Slutty brownies are the the most addicting, delicious brownies you will ever make, I ate half the pan the last time I made them...opps.

Anyways, Slutty Brownies are called this because they're so easy to make! (get it...haha.) They consist of a chocolate chip cookie dough base, double stuffed oreos, and a layer of brownie on top.

This recipe is the easiest thing you'll ever make, even easier than the oreo truffles, and only requires baking mixes, nothing from scratch!

Bag of chocolate chip cookie mix
Box of double stuffed oreos
Box of brownie mix

Preheat oven to the temperature on the brownie mix box

Prepare cookie mix and press into the bottom of a greased brownie pan

Place oreos in rows on top of the cookie dough 

Make brownie mix and pour over entire pan

Bake according to the brownie mix instructions, it may take a few minutes longer than the box says because the brownies are thicker, so periodically check the brownies by inserting a toothpick into the middle of the pan, if it comes out clean, they're done!
