Nothing better to start out the week than with a pan of decked out brownies. Or you can already start planning your treat for the upcoming weekend – there’s nothing wrong with dreaming about a weekend indulgence on a Monday. It’s probably the key to a happy week ahead :). Yup, it definitely is.

You most likely guessed by now that these brownies are inspired by my very favorite Girl Scout Cookies – Samoas. Also known as Caramel deLites. Am I the only one that had no idea Samoas were renamed to Caramel deLites? I was educated by my Facebook feed the other day (one of my friend’s shared a picture of her box) and I could hardly believe it.

Turns out their name was changed back in 2011. So needless to say, I was torn as to what to call these brownies. But after much pondering, I came to the conclusion that they shall forever be known as Samoas to me (I just can’t get myself to make the switch). Samoa Brownies it is. You can, of course, call ’em whatever you fancy.

No matter the name, the taste will still be out of this world. [Read more…]

It was just a matter of time. Baking a pan of bars that are perfect to serve during the days leading up to Christmas (and beyond) was on the very top of my list. Every time I looked at it, I kept thinking that today was the day. But inspiration hadn’t struck, so I waited patiently until I had just the right idea.

And then it happened. While strolling the isles of the grocery store and spotting Cherry Pie Filling, I instantly knew that I wanted to use it for my future bars.

Having been a bit obsessed with all things red and white this year, these bars turned out just the way I was hoping for. A generous layer of cheesecake baked on top of brownies and topped with those beautiful cherries.

Did I mention how much I love Christmas? [Read more…]

Happy Friday, friends. I am so excited Friday is finally here. Not just because it’s the end of the work week and the weekend begins, but I finally get to share these brownies with you.

It’s not like I had to wait an eternity to get around to blog these, but when you’re not the most patient person in the world, 5 days feels like forever. I know I could have switched things, but brownies and Fridays just go together.

It all started when I tried Hershey’s pumpkin spice kisses a couple of weeks ago. I don’t know why, but I had never had them before. Which was a total surprise to me. Since I love anything pumpkin spiced and have pretty much tried everything available, I had not idea how the kisses escaped me.

All I knew was that I needed to make a recipe that called for them and preferably didn’t use the whole bag ;). I needed to have a couple leftover to keep myself occupied while waiting for the brownies to cool and set. [Read more…]

You probably know by now that I don’t need a special day or occasion to come up with a sweet treat. But I’ve always felt like Friday nights deserve a special something something. And by special I mean a treat that takes not much effort to prepare and tastes out of this world amazing. Preferably a snackable item that puts you in just the right mood as you exhale and realize it’s weekend time!

Exactly what I’m going to give you today. Yes, there’s such a thing as brownie bark/brittle. Can you even imagine my reaction when I first discovered its existence?

I am not picky when it comes to brownies. I’m just as happy about a gooey middle piece than I am about a chewy corner. Adam on the other hand is all about the corners.

If you are anything like my hubby, you will love this bark. While there is a noticeable chewy texture throughout the entire bark, it’s also on the crunchy side, which is why it’s so addictive. Very reminiscent of thin cookies or sweet crackers, but still in a league of its own. We seriously couldn’t get enough. [Read more…]

Am I the only one who thinks July and therefore summer is going by way too fast?! I am not even close to being ready to think about anything but sun and sunshine. So let’s move on and talk about the topic at hand. Chocolate & PB Brownies.

This recipe was on the back burner for quite some time. I had an inkling that being around these brownies would be more than I can handle. And boy, oh boy, were my suspicions confirmed.

I’m blaming it totally and completely on Reese’s Peanut Butter Oreos aka The Bestest Invention There Ever Was. I am sorta hoping that the limited edition is here to stay. Who isn’t?!

You didn’t think that I would stop at S’moreos, did you? Yeah, you know me. So here’s one of the most epic brownies that almost made it out of our kitchen :). [Read more…]
