Gooey Rocky Road Bars

Ok....so these brownies are ugly. Like really ugly. But I don't judge you when you're having a bad hair day? Or when you only have two finger nails still painted pink because you were too lazy to scrub off the rest.. Or when you wore that awful sparkly headband last weekend. Ok okkkkkk so maybe that was me last week. But whatever, stop staring.... ! We all have those days. Some more than others.... So these are not the Heidi Klum of brownies, but what they lack in looks they make up for in … [Read more...]

Caramel Swirl Fudge Nut Brownies

Rich. Smooth. Chocolate chip fudge brownie. Layered with crunchy walnuts and swirled in creamy homemade caramel.... O ya, and then topped in another solid layer of gooey delicious caramel... These are serious brownies. For not so serious bakers (these are super simple!). Don't let the homemade caramel scare you off. I've always shied away from making homemade caramel. It's such a touchy little candy. You have to break out the candy thermometer (I found mine all dusty and shoved in the  back … [Read more...]

Chocolate Graham Cracker Snack Cake with Marshmallow Fluff Frosting

So I decided to beat my willpower to the punch today and ignore my new years resolution. Cut back on sugar? Aren't goals supposed to be realistic? I think I was reaching too far... I think I'll aim for less sugar before noon. Or at least not with breakfast. I decided to compromise and bake this yummy Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Snack Cake. Did you catch those last couple words? SNACK cake. Doesn't that kind of give you permission to treat that cake like a granola bar? But seriously. Who … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crispy Bars

So whoever decided that Rice Crispy Treats adds should only be targeted towards kids was totally wrong. Same with Cocoa Puffs and Cinnamon Toast crunch. Why should only toddlers and pre-teens get to enjoy the sweet crunch of deliciously processed sugar cereal? Trix are not just for kids! What they really need to do is run an add that shows adults sneaking Captain Crunch at 2 in the morning. Or stashing sandwich baggies of Cocoa Puffs in their glove compartments for the morning drive to … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Brownie Double Deckers

This recipe just helped answer one of the world's most burning questions... And no, I don't mean how to rid world hunger or why the Kardashians have more viewers than Oprah. This is bigger. Do I take the brownie or the cookie from the dessert tray? Answer:  Both... and at the same time! Yes, America, bigger is better. These bars are two layers of  yummy fudgy brownie and chewy chocolate chip cookie. The two batters come together in a deliciously rich and tender bar. I made my … [Read more...]

There is only one thing I like more than chocolate... Peanut butter and chocolate!

They are the perfect answer to all of that extra Halloween candy you have lying around the house. This is the second time I've made this recipe in a week and a half! The first time I barely even got one bite before my little brother was licking the pan clean. These blondies are SO easy to … [Read more...]
