But you’re an adult, and once a child sets their sights on a candy bar, there’s no turning back. Instead of worrying about all of the sketchy ingredients, extra calories, additives, and possible allergens in popular packaged sweets, here are a few recipes to Make Your Own Candy right at home. Most gawked all-time. Nutella Cream Cheese Turnovers. This recipe is for all the Nutella fans.

Peanut Butter S'Mores Turnovers

My husband often takes my son on camping trips, and I happily stay behind and thank the gods for our bug-free house, cozy bed and well-stocked kitchen. I always send them off in comfort… marinate a little meat for them to throw on the grill, pack up some convenience foods and bake a few goodies too. When they return from their camping weekends, I hear mostly about the evenings sitting around the campfire. Oreo Cheesecake Cookies.

You’ll be hearing about a more traditional style of gyoza later this month in the Washoku Warrior roundup, so today I’m going to share a simple filling that is a bit more unexpected. After cooking up some savory gyoza for dinner the other day, I had leftover homemade wrappers. I couldn’t let those yummy wrappers go to waste, so I decided to whip up a dessert that would use them up.

I am constantly looking for different ways to fuel my rather unhealthy lemon obsession, and since I've already made an elephantine amount of lemon bars (don't worry, there will be more!) , I decided to try something new...something kinda-sorta similar to a lemon bar but without the jelly-belly center. Low and behold, I stumbled upon this incantation of a lemon bar/brownie hybrid!

Schmevil's cake balls. If you haven’t heard of cake balls yet, I recommend that you check out Bakerella’s website to see what the fuss is all about.

Don’t just make these for the health benefits though, they taste pretty darn good too. Cookies and Cream Peanut Butter. Need a midnight snack?

They’re also stuffed with mini Hershey’s kisses to complete the S’mores trifecta. Groan. Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies. I am so in love with these darn chocolate lava cookies!
