Rolo Stuffed Pretzel Blondie Bites

I have been on a huge chocolate and pretzel fix lately, so this recipe obviously had to be made! 

These bite size muffins? cupcakes? blondies? (not sure what to call them) were very easy and fun to make! I had a baker's assistant for this one, as Kelly came over and hung out with me while I made them!

The trick to these little bites was that first, you stuck a rolo into the batter (which was really hard not to just eat by itself...)

but then, right when they came out of the oven you put a pretzel waffle in the warm dough so that it stuck! Some of them were hard to take out of the mini muffin pan...

and they got stuck but the diva was nice enough to model it for me...

But, other than that they turned out really good! the little bit of caramel in the middle was amazing!

So a couple weeks ago, Coco and our friend Kelly came over and we had a bit of a baking extravaganza. Kelly was making cupcakes to ask a friend to a prom party while Coco and I were both making our friend Laura some 21st birthday treats as well as other activities!

As you can see it was all really organized and neat..

Kelly made mini funfetti cupcakes and we iced them and decorated them with sprinkles!

I decided to make Laura a mini yellow cake using this recipe I had found that used ramekins instead of cake pans!
So you can guage how small this cake turned out...

it was small and Laura sized :] Happy birthday Laura!!

and she was nice enough to send me a picture of how it looked when she cut into it...
so cute!

While everything was baking, I decided to make these Reese's stuffed oreo bites that Coco and I had seen online! All you had to do was break open an Oreo and put a Reese's in the middle.. and then cover it in more chocolate so they stuck together. Can't be bad right?

They turned out super good and they were very easy to make, no baking required!

And, as usual, we decorated them with sprinkles :)
