Sweets for a Saturday #23

I can't believe that my chocolate chip cookie quest is finally coming to an end. For those of you who don't know, I baked, tested, and posted 13 different recipes for this treat. Who knew one little treat could be so versatile? As for the winner, however, you're going to have to wait until next Monday. The quest was so much fun (and so yummy) that I'm almost tempted to go on a quest to find the best brownie recipe. But, I think I'll shelve that idea for some day in the very distant future (although I admit that I already decided which recipes I would try when I do attempt that quest). Besides, don't brownies usually all come out great anyway, no matter the recipe?

Speaking of recipes and treats, here are your Top 5 from last week's Sweets for a Saturday:

1. No-Bake Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars - Nancy Creative



2. Glazed Donut Muffins - Brandy's Baking



3. Cinnamon Cream Cheese Squares - Let's Get Cookin'



4. Orange Jul-ish - The Alchemist



5. Rabanadas - Awaken Your Senses



The Rules:
  1. Please link up to the URL of your post, not the URL of your main blog. When it asks for "Name", type in the name of your treat.
  2. Please leave a link back to this post in your post or Grab My Button.
  3. Share your delicious sweets from this week. If you've made more than one during the week, feel free to link them all up.
  4. Leave me a comment telling me that you've linked up.
  5. Please visit at least two others and comment on their wonderful additions to this party.

  15. Hi Lisa! It's been a while since I have had a chance to link up here. There are always so many beautiful desserts to see and drool over!
    I am sharing my recipe for Strawberry Pudding. It is super healthy because it has very little sugar and is made with fresh fruit and some gelatin. It is a great dessert for kids because they won't be bouncing off of the walls from a sugar rush!
    Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!
