If you’re looking way to experience 4th of July fireworks that’s less risky for your fingers and a whole lot more delicious, look no further. Our all-time favourite Dessert Detective Jessie Oleson, aka Cakespy (previously featured here), recently shared her awesome recipe for Explosively Delicious Fourth of July Cookies.

The not-so-secret explosive ingredient is Pop Rocks. In this recipe they’re used in both the cookie dough itself and as a garnish.

"This not only makes them crackle like fireworks but also pays homage to that other all-consuming american obsession: truly trashy candy (and I say this in the most loving way possible)."

We’d like to add that you can dramatically transform this recipe in three different, but equally awesome ways by substituting the Pop Rocks with Sizzling Bacon Candy, Explosing Wasabi Candy or Exploding Popcorn Candy.

We’re sure you’ll agree that one of the best parts about the return of spring is the reappearance of Easter candy on store shelves, not the least of which are those oh-so-precious Cadbury Creme Eggs. Over the years our favourite Dessert Detective Jessie Oleson, aka Cakespy (previously featured here), has created a mouthwatering suite of recipes featuring Cadbury Eggs. And, because she’s all about sharing the sweetness, she always provides thorough instructions.

Here you see Jessie’s Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs, Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict, Cadbury Creme Egg Salad Sandwiches, Cadbury Creme Scotch Eggs, and last but not least, her latest creation: Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Toast. It’s a thick slice of pound cake with half a Cadbury Egg in the center that’s heated on a griddle and served warm, melty and delicious. (Each link will take you to the corresponding recipe)

Jessie Oleson, our favourite Dessert Detective and maven of sweetness otherwise known as Cakespy (previously featured here), has outdone herself once again. This ooey-gooey creation is a Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg.

A traditional Scotch Egg is a savoury treat consisting of a hard-boiled egg wrapped in sausage meat, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg, while no healthier, is all about sweetness:

"The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs. Though in my opinion, these have slightly more complex flavor thanks to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookie crumbs. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a nice texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior.”

Looking at these photos makes our teeth hurt and our stomachs rumble. Oh sweet Cadbury Creme Eggs, how we’ll miss you once you’re gone for the year.

'Tis the season for one of our favourite sweet treats, the Cadbury Creme Egg. We never seem to get enough before they're gone for another year.
Seattle’s beloved dessert afficionado, Cakespy, recently posted an awesome recipe for Cadbury Creme Egg Salad Sandwiches. 

"The bag lunch staple gets a sweet upgrade for Easter with this sweet trompe l’oeil sandwich, in which pound cake slices sandwich a "salad" comprised of yellow-tinted frosting studded with almonds and sliced Cadbury Creme Eggs, garnished with green coconut bits to resemble lettuce. It’s a fun dish to serve at a party, and a perfect complement to your Cadbury Creme Deviled Eggs and Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict.”
