Top 10 Recipes of 2016

Oh 2016, you have been quite a year. In terms of Cookies & Cups, I have to say, it’s been the best year yet.

I have had so many fun experiences this year, and so many new recipes that have become blog favorites! Let’s take a look back at what the top recipes posted in 2016 were…

Let’s start from the bottom and work up. Coming in at #10…

Unicorn Bars! Of course these made the list. Sweet, colorful, FROSTING and well, Unicorn Magic. We truly understand each other.

Number 9…a few savory recipes made the list this year, which makes me really happy! I definitely am going to continue posting easy dinner ideas in 2017!

One Pot Shrimp Pasta. The pasta cooks right in the sauce leaving a creamy and super flavorful pasta dish, not to mention it's ONE POT!! #TasteRiserva

One Pot Shrimp Pasta! This is truly a one pot meal and it quickly became one of our favorites. It’s super flavorful, with the pasta and sauce all cooking together!

And number 8…

The most Ridiculous Vanilla Cake... seriously the softest most moist cake EVER, it literally melts in your mouth!

Ridiculous Vanilla Cake. This is a little foreshadowing on what might be coming up later in the list!

Number 7…

saltedcaramelcheesecake-700

We all hopped on board the Instant Pot bandwagon this year and this Instant Pot Salted Caramel Cheesecake made right in the pressure cooker was not only delicious, but SO easy! The texture of this cheesecake was possibly the best I’ve ever made!

Number 6…

Sea Salt Butterscotch Pretzel Cookies are my new salty/sweet obsession! Browned Butter adds depth to the flavor while the butterscotch and chocolate chips keep things perfectly sweet!

What would this list be without a cookie recipe? You guys have made this Sea Salt Butterscotch Pretzel Cookie recipe a LOT…and I know this because I get tons of messages on social media & emails letting me know how much you love them!

Number 5…

No need to boil your pasta before making this EASY Crock Pot Mac and Cheese! Super creamy and done in just a few hours!

This No Boil Crock Pot Mac & Cheese was an overwhelming favorite this year, and considering I made it late in the year, shows how popular it was! You guys like simple and delicious!

Number 4…

Easy Cinnamon Roll Cake! Of course! This one starts with a boxed cake mix, but gets dressed up with some extra cinnamon sugar deliciousness. Plus, that icing!

Number 3…

Brown Butter Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies are possibly the coziest cookie to ever exist. They're sweet, full of brown butter and cinnamon goodness coated in melt in your mouth powdered sugar that gives them the perfect crinkle look!

Brown Butter Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies! These cookies have been really popular this month. I’m guessing this crinkle cookie made an appearance on a lot of holiday platters!

Number 2…

GARBAGE BREAD!! This is a simple recipe that can be adapted SO many ways! Bacon Cheeseburger Garbage Bread is our favorite, but throw your leftovers in a pizza crust and roll it up! The possibilities are endless.

Garbage Bread!! Some of you didn’t like the name of this recipe, but stay with me here. It’s essentially a Bacon Cheeseburger Stromboli and it’s SO GOOD! Plus, it’s a great adaptable recipe that you can get creative with!

AND NUMBER ONE…

The most RIDICULOUS Chocolate Cake I've ever made. Seriously delicious and crazy moist.

Heyyyyyyy Ridiculous Chocolate Cake!!

I feel like this is the perfect recipe to sit at Number 1 on my list. It’s easy, CRAZY moist, and CHOCOLATE! If you haven’t made this one, you NEED to!

 

Thank you all SO much for visiting my little internet space in 2016.

You all are my favorites.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?
