Chocolate Covered PB Cracker Sandwiches

Sometimes a long title is indispensable when describing a mouthwatering sensation. I really had no idea what to call these. Too good to be true? Yes, that one came in as a close second. I went for the obvious. Listing every. single. ingredient. In other words chocolate, peanut butter and crackers. The likelihood that you have all of these already on hand is pretty high. I did and had no idea what deliciousness these 3 could produce. No recipe was needed. I had seen pictures and figured they didn’t need much instruction – my sweet tooth took the lead.

It was love at first bite. There’s no question that these sweet sandwiches will make a yearly appearance from now on. I was in pure peanut butter and chocolate bliss. The salt from the crackers goes with the whole salted chocolate trend and couldn’t be more up my ally. So, so swoon-worthy!

And since I like pretty desserts and obviously can’t stop at simple, I decided to chop up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and drizzle chocolate on top of each sandwich cookie. Still smiling about that decision. Because really. What is better than peanut butter and chocolate if not more peanut butter and chocolate? [Read more…]

Lemon Pucker Bars

I know. It’s still Christmastime and all, which doesn’t really scream lemon. Unless you think about Vitamin C and keeping colds and other things far, far away. Yes, lemon suddenly does make sense. I wasn’t really going for health food when I baked these gorgeous bars though. Butter, sugar and a little more butter don’t qualify as said food, but I’ll take anything that gives me a good excuse to take a bite out of these scrumptious bars. [Read more…]

Dark Chocolate Cookies Filled with Caramel

It has happened! We finally got some snow at the beginning of the week. And let’s be honest, nothing puts you into the Christmas mood more than the fluffy white stuff. With the flakes gently falling to the ground, I was basically drawn to the kitchen. And could I really have made anything besides cookies? Not just any old cookie would do – oh no, no, no! It had to be one of the best. A cookie that is chocolaty, rich and rolled in sprinkles. Lots and lots of sprinkles. It’s gonna be delicious!

Sipping Hot Chocolate

Sipping Hot Chocolate by Deliciously Yum!

Brrrr. That’s the only sound I’ve been making for the past couple of days. We can’t quite remember the last time the temperatures reached a two-digit number. It’s been bitter cold not just here but throughout the entire country and all I can think of are warm and cuddly things. What embodies that more than a cup of steaming cocoa? Making hot chocolate from scratch couldn’t be easier. One sip of this delectable beverage and you’ll bid adieu to powdered packages for good. Let’s indulge! [Read more…]

Double Peppermint Crunch Bark

Yep, we’re back to all things peppermint. Please blame Target and my weakness of being able to resist holiday candy in every shape or form. Have you tried Peppermint M & M’s yet? They have white chocolate inside and couldn’t have been a better fit for my Peppermint Bark dreams. I am a huge fan of crunchy things combined with rich and silky smooth chocolate. Needless to say, this bark disappeared within hours. It’s definitely a challenge to resist something this mouthwatering while trying to take some good pictures. I present to you Peppermint Galore!
