Rolled Sugar Cookie Recipe + Nutella

The kids were on Spring Break last week which meant getting less work done for me and more time in the kitchen. I actually was in the mood to bake and made some cute flower sugar cookies. I made quite a bit of dough, so I was able to make some good size cookies. When you add Nutella on your sugar cookies once they are cooled, they are delicious.

Below is a easy recipe for rolled sugar cookie dough:

Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe

Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe

One thing that I LOVE to cook is cakes. For me, making a cake from scratch can be better than a store bought cake. I make a chocolate cake that is super easy, from scratch and needs no frosting. You can use frosting, but I like to use powdered  sugar with this one. For this recipe, I just throw all the ingredients in one bowl and mix. This is a super yummy cake that goes really FAST at my house.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats Recipe

 Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats Recipe

One thing that is easy to make and also yummy is Rice Crispy Treats. This is something that I have been enjoying since I was a kid. I remember that I would LOVE the days that my mom made these for me. I wanted to make something sweet and I a had a new unopened box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch that was calling my name and some marshmallows.

Instead of using Rice Krispies cereal I used the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and made something just as good or even better.
