Cranberry Orange Rolls

The holiday season is officially in full effect. If I’m being completely honest, the truth is that I’ve had holiday decorations out since the third week in November lol. I had some serious preparation for this holiday season! And I’m super pumped to be kicking off the season with these Cranberry Orange Rolls because they are divine!

For this post, I teamed up with Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast. Using their RapidRise® Yeast for this recipe was a total ace!

What is Rapid Rise Yeast?

Most yeast requires you to get it started in water. Most of my cinnamon roll recipes have you dissolve it into lukewarm water or milk and wait until it activates. Sometimes this can be finicky. It can take anywhere from 5 to 8 minutes for it to activate and get all nice and foamy. But Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast is actually mixed within the dry ingredients—no activation required! This means no waiting around for it to be activated. You can mix and proceed with the recipe!

It saves a total of 5 minutes from this recipe. It makes these morning rolls super fool-proof. No need to worry if you activated the yeast correctly!

Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie

The hardest question I’ve been asked lately has been, “What’s your favorite pie to make at Thanksgiving?!” THIS IS HARD FOR ME TO ANSWER. But, if I had to answer, I’d wince and say this Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie. Of course I love all pie but chocolate and pecans are a match-made in heaven. They’re meant for each other!

For this post, I teamed up with Karo® Corn Syrup which is my go-to ingredient for the silkiest smoothest pecan pie. It’s an essential ingredient in classic pecan pie because it prevents the crystallization of sugar. This is crucial when cooking all of these ingredients together.

The corn syrup isn’t overly sweet but I really love the dark chocolate because it balances the sweetness in the pie and gives a really complementary bitterness.

Let’s dive in!

Mummy Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

Hello cute, Mummy Dark Chocolate Cupcakes!

If you’ve read this blog for a long time you probably know by now that Halloween ACTUALLY scares me. I was walking around in the neighborhood the other day and was frankly disturbed by some of the elaborate spooky decorations. People really get into it.

These mummy cupcakes are about as spooky as I get. I’m more of a Christmas and Valentine’s Day girl, you know. But I do, however, stand by these cupcakes 100% in terms of flavor and cuteness.
