The top 10 posts of 2016 on Persnickety Plates! The most popular, most viewed, YOUR favorites.
I love looking back on the year and seeing which recipes were well received. You guys like sweets. Good thing I do, too.
TOP 10 POSTS OF 2016
Going backwards, the most popular are…
#10 – Strawberry Jello Poke Cupcakes – I made these for breast cancer awareness month and they were a hit. They’d also be great for Valentine’s Day (right around the corner…the stores are already decorating)
#9 – Baked Salsa Chicken Casserole – I’m happy this one is in the Top 10 because I love a good casserole and they never seem to rank very high with my readers. Try it!
#7 – Soft & Chewy Ginger Snaps – I just posted these classic cookies last month and they quickly shot to the Top 10, which makes me happy.
#6 – Brownie Bottom Halloween Cupcakes – These were really fun and really good. What’s not to love about a combo of brownie + cupcake?! You could skip the orange food coloring and these would be great any time of year.
#5 – Pistachio Poke Cake – I’m glad this was well received in the virtual world because it has quickly become my most requested recipe to make in real life. Of all the things I make from scratch, this doctored cake mix recipe is everyone’s favorite.
#4 – Garlic Herb Dip – SUPER easy cream cheese based dip that’s great for parties and would be perfect for a NYE spread.
#3 – Better Than Box Mix Brownies – so this wasn’t technically a 2016 post but I revamped the pictures this year and it worked – it shot up to #3. You really do eat with your eyes first! This is my go-to brownie recipe and it makes a family size pan.
#2 – Halloween Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies – These were really popular in a short amount of time. Maybe because they’re so bright and pretty but they’re also really good.
#1 – Cream Cheese Funfetti Bars – Finally, the #1 most popular post of 2016 was Cream Cheese Funfetti Bars that I made for spring time. Really easy, really good, and really festive for spring/Easter. Pretty much everyone likes Funfetti – it’s already been pinned more than 181,000 times!
And, if we’re not counting new posts just from 2016, the MOST viewed Persnickety Plates post was Crock Pot Honey Bourbon Chicken, by far. I updated the pin for it and it took off. It’s a easy dinner idea that has gotten really good reviews, even though half of the comments I get are people pointing out that there’s no bourbon it in. I KNOW, GUYS. I KNOW. -_-
Thanks for reading in 2016 and here’s to a happy, healthy, and tasty 2017!
