If you thought the only sweets you’d eat during October were Halloween candies, think again! October is National Dessert Month, so that basically gives you permission to satisfy your sweet tooth all month long! Here’s a quick and easy idea to start your weekend off right: Cherry-Plum Crumble.
What makes this dessert so simple is the store-bought oatmeal cookie mix. Just add butter, plums, cherries and a dollop of vanilla ice cream and you have the most perfect fall dessert in minutes. Watch our step-by-step recipe video here.
If you ask us, the very best way to wind down after a busy week is a work-free self-indulgence. And there’s no better recipe for this crisp fall day than our rich, creamy, warm chocolate pudding!
Just one bite of our Warm Chocolate Pudding will take you straight to chocolate heaven. Even better: It only takes one saucepan and seven ingredients to make (and most of the ingredients are probably already in your kitchen!). Share this sweet snack with friends to celebrate the end of the work week, or simply indulge alone–we won’t judge you if it never even makes it out of the pot!
Watch our video tutorial to learn how to make these decadent bowls of perfection here.
Our favorite kind of cocktails are like dessert: They’re sweet indulgences that help us through both the best and worst of times. Which makes us wonder: Why separate them? This Thirsty Thursday, we’re sharing some of our favorite cocktail-inspired dessert recipes, so when the time comes, you won’t have to choose one over the other.
It’s midnight and you’re looking for a night cap. Try our White Russian Ice Cream.
You offered to bring a treat to a friend’s get-together, but don’t know whether to bring liquor or dessert. Frozen Mojito Cake-Tails are the perfect compromise.

With so many ways to mix cocktail time and dessert, you no longer need to wait until 5 o’clock to start celebrating!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a milk chocolate person. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good hunk of the dark stuff, but when I have to choose milk is my go-to goodie. And since I try to celebrate National Milk Chocolate Day every day, I wanted to share a few of my favorite recipes for the occasion!
Milk chocolate and peanut butter are a classic combination–just ask any Reese’s fan out there. Kick it up a notch with our Peanut Butter-Stuffed Milk Chocolate Sandwich Cookies.
Tip: Use chocolate bars instead of chocolate chips in this Chocolate-Banana Bread Pudding; they melt better than chocolate morsels, which are formulated to hold their shape during baking.

Happy National Peach Ice Cream Day! It’s summer, and there’s no better time to enjoy a nice juicy peach than right now. So stock up! This recipe ensures those peaches won’t go to waste.
5 Tips for Making Homemade Ice Cream:
1. To decrease prep time, store the bowl of your ice cream maker in the freezer, wrapped tightly in a plastic bag.
2. Add mix-ins, such as nuts and chocolate chips, for only the last minute of churning.
3. To ensure proper aeration, only fill the ice cream maker three-quarters of the way.
4. Make sure the ice cream “batter” or custard is cool before putting it into the machine.
5. To prevent ice crystals from forming in the freezer, place a piece of plastic wrap on the top surface and press down.
