I can’t believe I am actually staring 2015 in the face already. This year just flew by and was honestly a pretty fantastic year. I loved the recipes I shared this year and am excited to keep it up in 2015. It’s always fun to go back and see which recipes were favorites with readers. These are the top 10 most viewed dessert recipes of the year. Was one of them your favorite?
#10. These were so much fun. This year was definitely a miniature sized year for me in desserts. I had fun creating things smaller in scale and many of those very desserts became very popular and favorites with readers. The blueberry in this dessert makes it absolutely perfect for any event or just because. I may or may not have just eaten them for breakfast a few times.
#9. When Nestle asked me to play with their new DelightFulls™, I knew exactly which ones I would use. Chocolate and Peanut Butter go hand in hand, and we LOVE these cupcakes that are not only topped with a rich and delicious Peanut Butter frosting, but are stuffed on the inside with peanut butter and also DelightFulls™.
#8. Chocolate and Pumpkin? Who’d have guessed what a fantastic combo this would make in trifle form? They are always a huge hit and you can change them up with different ingredients as you can with just about any trifle. Pure FALL in a mini glass. Yum!
#7. Ice Cream Floats are the perfect ending to any hot summer day. I had so much fun creating these SUPER simple Ice Cream floats for Coke this year. Apparently my readers were all ready to cool off too and just wanted an easy way to do it as it came in at #7.
#6. Confession time? This was my absolute favorite recipe to create in 2014, I think. It has everything I adore in a dessert. Dark Chocolate, Raspberries and well… wine. This cake is so rich, decadent and delicious. It’s no wonder that in only two months it made it into the top 6 dessert recipes of 2014. Plus it was developed for Gallo Family Vineyards for a #SundaySupper so even better!
#5. My favorite drink, Dr Pepper makes this Dr Pepper Cherry Ice Cream Sundae SO much better. Yes, I made Ice Cream with Dr Pepper. Yes it was absolutely amazing and creamy. And yes I even took it a step further and made a Dr Pepper Cherry Caramel sauce. Yes, I might be addicted to Dr Pepper.
#4. Posted less than a month ago, and already it’s in the Top 4 dessert recipes. I think it may be because it’s super simple, but it also could be because it’s colorful and fun and who doesn’t love things like that? We gave this as gifts to friends and neighbors this year and it was a huge hit. No wonder you all loved it too!
#3. If you say Ghirardelli to me I melt a little. I love everything Ghirardelli and this flourless chocolate cake is made better because of it. Honestly, it’s nice that it’s Gluten-Free and that was really just by accident. I just wanted a flourless cake. The texture if kind of a mix between cheesecake and mousse. It’s lovely, light but VERY rich and served with raspberries and raspberry syrup it’s kinda like chocolate heaven. Just sayin’
#2. I was actually pretty surprised that these super easy Gooey Lemon Bars made it to the number 2 spot. But then I thought about it and realized what isn’t there to love? They are lemon, they are super easy and they are a bite of summer whenever you feel like it.
#1. This was another one of my favorites this year. I loved using Tabasco sauce to spice this dark chocolate cake up. Drenched in a spicy blackberry sauce it was truly the highlight of our Christmas table this year!
Mmmmm…. such a delicious year in desserts! I’m looking forward to bringing you more delicious dessert recipes in 2015. Which one was your favorite this year?
