I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! I had a wonderful week with my family and friends and ate lots of great food! I made several goodies while I was at home last week and thought I would share them with you. 


This is my father-in-law's favorite dessert- Mississippi Mud Pie! It has layers of chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse, cream cheese mousse, and whipped cream all in a graham cracker crust. I topped it with chocolate shavings and candied pecans. Yum!


Next is a Pumpkin cake, layered with cream cheese filling and covered in candied pecans. 



What's Thanksgiving without Pecan Pie?!? These are Whiskey Pecan Tarts topped with creme Chantilly and candied pecans.


I saved the best (my favorite) for last...Sweet Potato Tarts topped with homemade toasted marshmallows. These marshmallows aren't easy to make, but completely worth it! And the best part is getting to toast them with a kitchen torch! So much fun!


Well, now that Thanksgiving is over, that means Christmas is right around the corner. I can't wait to share some great ideas for cookies, candies, and cakes with you!
