5 of my Favorite Pink Treats

Roasted Beet Hummus – Roasted beets really brighten up this hummus recipe. And they provide a subtle earthy sweetness. Hubby and I served this at a get together with friends and it was the talk of the party.

Chocolate M&M Cookies – M&M cookies are such a classic treat. These use a brownie-like batter instead of a sugar cookie base and have M&Ms on the outside AND the inside.

White Chocolate Cranberry Mousse – White chocolate and orange zest help to mellow out the tartness of the cranberries in this mousse. It is delicate and fluffy and tastes like fall.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Beets – Another case of beets making something BRIGHT pink. Here the beets are mixed into mashed sweet potatoes. The sauteed scallions on top provide a punch of savory to this sweet veggie mash.

Berry Cream Cheese – Berries and cream cheese make a lot of sense. This super simple recipe combines the two for use on your favorite bagel.

Don’t forget about my Power of Pink Challenge – make something PINK by the end of the month to raise Breast Cancer Awareness!

    Your blog has a huge influence on my hunger, I suddenly want some cookies! Do they have special bags of M&M’s with the pink ones? Very cute cookies!

    Thanks Clara! These cookies are SO GOOD. I could make another batch today… maybe I will…

    Sorry Steph. Yes, there are special bags of pink M&Ms. Most grocery stores and CVS-type places have them.
