Creations by Kara top 10 posts of 2016

Of all the posts I published in the last twelve months, these are the ones that have received the most visits. Usually I do a top 10 recipe round-up, and a top 10 project round-up. But this year was a challenge for me health wise, so I didn’t have the energy for projects. I don’t even know if I posted ten of them. So I’m combining them this year. Thankfully I’m feeling much better and am looking forward to getting back into DIY mode in 2017!

Without further adieu, here are the ten top posts that I shared in 2016. Enjoy!

Top 10 Posts of 2016

10- Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

I got this recipe from my mom, and they are my favorite popcorn balls of all time. When I was growing up, we would make them with cut up gumdrops in them. You can use any candy you like, or just leave them plain. They are so yummy!

9- Peanut Butter Waffles with Peanut Butter Syrup

I love all things peanut butter, so I’m thrilled that this recipe made the list. The waffles are amazing, but it is the peanut butter syrup that really takes them over the top. Oh my word.

5- White Chocolate Raspberry Scones 

Just looking at these pretty little scones makes me happy. I love all those cute berries peeking out everywhere. And the taste is out of this world. I love the balance of the sweet white chocolate and the tart cherries. Oh so good!

4- Blueberry Dump Cake 

I grew up having dump cake fairly often, and I always loved it as a kid. As an adult I found it a bit too sweet for my liking. But this one starts with fresh berries instead of pie filling, and that makes all the difference in the world. It is phenomenal. And vanilla ice cream is not optional!
