Shelly Jaronsky has a problem. She’s an addict. Of the buttercream variety.

“Chronicling my life in sugar” has been Shelly’s motto since the inception of her insanely frequented dessert blog, Cookies & Cups. With recipes ranging from the deliciously decadent (her S’mores Fudge Bars will make you seriously reconsider everything you thought you knew about baked goods) to the deceptively simple (her Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie will become an instant staple in your baking repertoire), The Cookies & Cups Cookbook truly has something for everyone, from the cooking novice to the seasoned chef.

Now you can bring Shelly’s signature style into your own kitchen with more than 125 no-fail recipes, including some reader-approved favorites and a special bonus section dedicated to the quick and savory side of cooking.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cookies and Cups by Shelly Jaronsky is a 2016 Gallery Books publication. I was provided a copy of this book as an XOXpert, the official street team of XOXO After Dark.

Shelly Joronsky has given us a cool cookbook based on her wildly popular blog, "Cookies & Cups.

While a large portion of this cookbook is dedicated to sweets, there are a few savory recipes included as well.

I tried out the Texas Sheet Cake in a jar recipe and loved it! This recipe basically consists of creating layers of moist chocolate cake, rich chocolate icing and pecans in a mason jar. The jar can be decorated and makes a nice gift idea as well.

This cookbook is loaded with rich and creamy cakes, cookies, and pastries, and party snacks with color illustrations and pictures.

I had never heard of many of these recipes and can't wait to try more of them. Any of these scrumptious sweets are bound to make an impression on your family and friends, and you will have something to share that is a nice change of pace.

Overall this unique recipe collection gets 4 stars
