Friday Favorite Finds # 137

Today marks the last day of fall semester!  It’s a bittersweet day for me – I was so blessed by these students this semester.  It is amazing how God can use nearly 80 freshman in college to uplift & encourage you just when you need it. 

That said – my favorite find this week does indeed go to my students! I know they are not a recipe option, but they were a treasure and a great find this fall. 

All my finds today come from my Christmas Baking Board. All images are from the original recipe source, and linked through Pinterest.

Caramel Pretzel Bites
{Love that these bites do not have peanut butter --
and, since sweet & salty make an amazing combo, I'm excited about these!}


Easy Candy Cane Cheesecake
{Lara used one of my favorite new, nut-free candies to make this! Can't wait.}


Peppermint Crunch Brownie Cookies
{These nut-free candies make an appearance in this dessert too... love this idea!}


Candy Cane S'mores
{no explanation needed for these!!}


Cranberry Orange Scones
{These scones would make an elegant breakfast!}


What did you find this week?

Please link up to a post containing your list of recipes to try -- do not link up individual recipes, or recipes that you’ve already made, your links will be deleted.   Be sure to leave a link back here to Finding Joy in My Kitchen.

As a heads up, we will have Friday Favorite Finds up until Christmas.  Between Christmas & New Years we will be celebrating our annual Countdown to the New Year!  More to come on that in a few days. 


  1. The cranberry orange scones look amazing. Thanks for the party.

  2. Glad you are doing the Countdown again this year :) Thank you for hosting!

  3. Those candy cane s'mores are now on my to do list!! Today was my last day of the semester (my first semester teaching!!!) as well - bittersweet for sure! I've just started a long-term relationship with teaching college students :)

  4. Looks like you were really into candy canes this week. :) Thanks for hosting!
