Whenever you’re having a craving for cookies, a small snack or dessert, or just having a bad day and want something to make you feel better, these no-bake salted chocolate cookies are for you! They’re full of yummy crunchiness from the oats, sweet from the chocolate, and has a punch of salt from the butter.

Pumpkin-Filled Mochi - Classic mochi with a mildly sweet pumpkin filling.

Mochi has been one of my all time favorite snacks since childhood. I remember going to the supermarket and buying the individually wrapped colorful mochi filled with different flavors including the popular sweet red bean.

Classic Hummus - a wonderful snack that can be used as a dip for chips or a spread for toast.

Hummus has always been one of my most favorite dips/spreads ever. It is so creamy, thick, and delicious! Every time my mom buys hummus from the store, I always dip chips into and eat it as a snack, everyday, until they are gone – in less than a week! However, my mom doesn’t really buy it often – either because I eat too much, too fast, or she just doesn’t want to buy it. Well, I have my own homemade hummus so it doesn’t really matter now, right?

Chocolate + peanut butter = love. They are one of my most favorite combinations of sweets. Chocolate lovers out there – what’s your favorite type of chocolate or combination of chocolate? Mine is dark chocolate with either raspberry, mint, or coffee fillings (well also, of course, peanut butter!… you can’t forget peanut butter right?). The dark chocolate gives a nice contrast to the sweetness to the filling because of the bitter taste. The best is when the shell or outer coating of the chocolate is hard and crunchy but the inside is nice, soft, and creamy. The creaminess of the filling is a nice surprise after biting a hard piece of chocolate.
