2012: YOUR Favorite Sugary Posts

Happy New Year! I hope you all were safe and responsible last night and that you are having a wonderful holiday!

Psst…have you entered to win an iPad with Retina Display yet? Go enter!

You all, my readers, have made this an absolutely fantastic year for Crazy for Crust. Last week I shared with you my favorites…and now I am sharing with you YOUR favorites; the top viewed posts here at Crazy for Crust.

I must say, some of these would have been on my favorites list, had they not made this one. Some of them I wouldn’t have thought twice about. But all of them had more hits than I would ever have thought possible! So thank you, for making this list possible.

Peanut Butter Football Dip – this post was my first (only?) post that went “viral.” As in, it will probably be #1 for a loooong time. I have no idea what the appeal was other than it was peanut butter and chocolate…but everyone loved it so much people stole my photos and recipes as their own…so I guess that means I made it!

Butterfinger Fudge – such a simple idea…and I was amazed at the response.

ICEE Cupcakes – holy cow this one went crazy. Jordan loved these…me, not as much. But all her friends adored them, and I immediately got an order for a set.

Oreo Truffle Brownies – this was followed later by my favorite of the two, Nutter Butter Truffle Brownies.

Devil’s Food Cake Batter Dip – this is an amazing treat…but what I came away with was those pie crust dippers. Best invention ever!

Lemon Meringue Pie Fudge – I think the triangles did it. Seriously.

Rolo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies – again…not a new thing but OMG y’all love a stuffed cookie, don’t you?

Teacher Appreciation Ideas – I run a dessert blog, have less than a handful of non-dessert recipes, and one makes the top 10. Who knew?

Coffee Cake Pie – shockingly good.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Cupcakes – a second variation on one of my favorite cupcakes!

Thanks for supporting me in 2012! What will your favorite recipe be in 2013? I guess you’ll have to keep reading to find out!

What do YOU want me to make this year?

  1. It’s always so funny to me to read about what recipes really take off! For me, it was my super simple Peppermint Crunch Puppychow! For you – the peanut butter football dip! No bake recipes – people LOVE them! Dorothy, I loved so many of your goodies this year. Especially your lemon meringue pie fudge (even though it didn’t make the list!) I love lemon desserts. And those ICEE cupcakes are so popular with kids!

  2. Quite the yummy year, Dorothy! I always love going back through the posts to see what’s been most popular. You run a dessert blog and had a non-dessert post in the top 10 … I run a not-only-desserts blog, and NINE of my top 10 were desserts! I guess we all love our sweets!! Happy new year to you!

  12. That lemon meringue pie fudge is the coolest idea ever! Such a fresh take on fudge that’s normally loaded with rich chocolate. Can’t wait to see what you bring to us this year!
