Peanut Butter Cup cheesecake bites

Our family had a baby shower this weekend and we wanted to do dessert a little different than our usual cookies, and cupcakes.  These tasty treats were perfect.  Everyone loved them and they are beyond easy.  Easy to make and look a little fancy.  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Bites

1 pkg. peanut butter cups (bite size)
Mini cupcake liners
4-5 Graham crackers (smashed)
1 box Instant Jello cheesecake mix
1 bag Mini chocolate chips

1. Mix cheesecake mix according to box.  

2. Spoon a tiny amount of cheesecake mix into each liner.  Then place a peanut butter cup on top of cheesecake mix.  Press down so it fits in the liner and the cheesecake mix kinda comes up the sides of the peanut butter cup.  (Remember to remove both wrappers on peanut butter cup.)

3. Place another tiny spoonful of cheesecake mix on top and sprinkle graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips on top.  Place in fridge until ready to serve.

4. Helpful hint: If you place cheesecake mix into piping bag instead of spooning it in it will be less messy. 

Sparkle Trees

A while back I bought a massive container of silver glitter thinking I would use it all on this one craft.  If I used 1/8 of it I would be surprised.  So I have been trying to find crafts to use it up and these simple sparkle trees are perfect.  They fill in that spot you need to fill on the mantle, table, anywhere you need a decoration fill.  And the best part is since I had the glitter and mod podge already, I got the rest of the supplies at the dollar store.

Sparkle Trees

Mod Podge
Styrofoam Trees (dollar store)
Candle stick holders (dollar store)

Sponge brush

1. Coat entire tree in mod podge with sponge brush, roll in glitter.

2. Let dry for one hour.

3. Add another layer of mod podge.

4. Let dry and glue candle stick holder to bottom of tree.

Granola Bites

Kara made these the other day, then called me and said you have to make these.  And now I am telling you to make these!  They are so delicious, and shockingly healthy in a way.  At least better than a chocolate chip cookie.  Hope you enjoy.

Granola Bites

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 2/3 cup honey or agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1. Combined all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.  

2. Form into tablespoon sized balls.

3. Place on parchment paper, let set in fridge for 1 hour. 

4. Keep in container in fridge.

Dollar store craft

This holiday decoration is so beyond easy it needs no instruction.  I love all the Holiday things I am finding at the dollar store.  It is so great to be able to decorate and have the house filled with Christmas and know I spent not much at all.  These platters are above my couch where you can see I have a mirror and some family pictures.  All you have to do is draw whatever you want on the plastic silver platters with a chalkboard pen and you're done.  And its great because if you mess up you can wipe it off and start over again.  Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Christmas wreath

This may be the easiest wreath I have ever made.  At my house the Christmas decorations are up!  It may be too early but I just love all the sparkle and excitement it brings to the house.  I wanted a wreath that was easy and fun and I think this does it.  I love it so much that if you would like one, and don't want to make one, I will do it for you.  $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping.  This wreath just got even easier if all you have to do is hang it on your door.  Email me at twosweettreats@gmail if you do.  But if you would like to make it, below is a list of supplies you will need.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Gracie's 2nd Birthday Cake

Yesterday was my Gracie girl's 2nd Birthday!  How is she already 2!?  It is beyond crazy how fast time goes by.  She had such a fun day and was spoiled.  Thanks to all our family who came to her party yesterday.  Means a lot to us and we are so blessed to be loved by so many!  I had no clue what to do for a cake.  I first wanted to do a theme of one of her favorite shows but I knew that would take much longer, and with a husband in school 24/7 I knew it would not be possible trying to do a cake and chase Gracie all day.  So I went with something simple, and I think it turned out great!  Hope you enjoy!  If you need a cake for anything email me at!
