Swirled No-Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

So, this happened.

Here’s how: after drinking 3 large cups of tea (with the help of my new Keurig – love that thing), trying to concentrate on reading and keeping myself occupied with housework, I was no longer able to resist the urge of entering my kitchen to whip up something containing loads and loads of peanut butter. It goes without saying that chocolate had to be part of the cast of characters because you never separate best friends. Peanut Butter & Chocolate = BFF.

You see, I was avoiding our kitchen all morning because I knew that me being trapped in the house with a pan of these bars could cause major damage. To my waistline, thank you very much, MN Snow/Frozen Tundra Day. The fact that these bars take almost no time to make or work to prepare, wasn’t helping my case. I was left with no excuse why I had to stock up on calories after working so very hard in the kitchen. But yeah, I still could not be deterred from eating an undisclosed amount of these.

Do not keep reading if you’re planning on keeping your food-related resolution this year. Unless you’re in need of lots of protein, which these bars are totally delivering. [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…]

Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars

I have no words for this. Well, maybe one. RIDICULOUS. That’s exactly what these bars are. There is no way I could come even close to describing to you what these taste like. All I can say is that you’ll feel overwhelmingly happy. So much so that you won’t know what to do with yourself. It starts out with a huge smile, which quickly turns into uncontrollable giggles, followed by laughter and the slapping of anything and everyone you can find. You’ll be so enamored you might even start rolling on the kitchen floor… yep, you’ll be a complete loony. But hey, at least you have something to blame. Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars are prepared to change your taste buds. Are you ready to give it a whirl? [Read more…]

Spiced Crumb Bars

Monday Morning is here to welcome you with a sweet start to your week. I sure hope you had a wonderful weekend! We spent the last couple of days studying and getting caught up on housework. My husband was frequently found with his head buried in textbooks – preparing for the second out of three exams he has to take for his job this morning. I know you will do great, honey! While he was busy I was able to catch up on chores and fun projects. Sunday morning was filled with a family photo shoot of dear friends of ours . Fall is in full swing and we had to take advantage of its beauty. A Green Bay Packer win and a birthday party was the perfect way to end our days off. In hopes of sweetening the beginning of another week, I decided to make some scrumptiously Spiced Crumb Bars. I adore any dessert that’s topped with a crunchy and buttery topping. There’s just something about melting two layers of different textures together and enjoying both of them in one bite. Moist bars and crispy yumminess make a perfect team! [Read more…]

Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

In our house fall wouldn’t be fall if we didn’t have these bars. Since almost all the trees are in full foliage, it was definitely time to bake up a batch. This is a family favorite that has been passed down from generation to generation. Something so pure and perfect that is simply unforgettable and loved by all. Tweaking recipes and changing them up a bit is something that comes naturally to me. I am definitely not one that enjoys the same thing over and over. Hello food blog! I like to keep myself engaged and try new things whenever possible. But I realize that some things are meant to be preserved and cherished. Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting are certainly one of them. I follow the recipe to a T and can’t think of a time that these didn’t come out just right. Another reason why this is a family fave, I suspect. [Read more…]
