Best of Beyond Frosting 2016

It’s always nice to look back on the top posts I create each year. On average, I post 2 new recipes a week which is about 100 recipes. Some weeks there are more and some there are less. Just think about that and then think about all the butter, sugar, flour, eggs and powdered sugar I have gone through; I’m a regular at Target. 2016 was the year of No-Bake Treats! After last year’s marathon to the finish, I can say I enjoyed the holiday season FAR more this year and I am making up for all of last year’s lost sleep.

The best recipes from Beyond Frosting in 2016

It was really great to see a lot of last year’s (2015) posts in my top performing recipes again this year. It’s nice to know we share a love for poke cakes. Below I’ve rounded up the top 10 recipes that I posted in 2016. There’s a LOT of cake, chocolate and Oreos. I’ve always known we had a lot in common.

I hope you enjoyed the holidays with family and friends and celebrated the love ones who couldn’t be with us and I wish you a happy and healthy 2017.
