Chewy Salted Caramels

Thanksgiving Eve is here. I’ve always loved the Eve of any holiday or special occasion. The anticipation for what’s in store the following day feels so magical to me. Getting together with family, enjoying good food and just taking it all in is worth getting excited for. You probably have your Thanksgiving Day menu planned by now and are ready for the big day. If you feel like adding something sweet, these Chewy Salted Caramels should definitely be it. Even if you’re already set for the main meal, you may be looking for something fun to do on this long weekend. These caramels fit the bill just right. I mean, chewy, salted, and caramel. Do I really need to say more to convince you to make these? Yeah, didn’t think so.

Buckeye Mini Bites

Happy Monday! How was your weekend?? We were busy with friends, church, and getting our home ready for Christmas – from the outside that is. Having had much experience with hanging lights and wreaths during bitter cold weather in the past, we finally mustered up enough motivation to get our halls decked. 42 degree weather wasn’t exactly balmy, but it definitely beat anything below freezing! We’re officially ready for our first big snowfall.

Just so we’re able to start off the week on the right foot, I decided to make you the cutest mini chocolate and peanut butter bites. I stumbled upon this recipe a couple of weeks ago and knew immediately that I had to recreate it for you. This is a true time-saver and easy as can be. Ideal for those times when you have unexpected company coming over or whenever you feel like making an incredible dessert without much effort. And hey, we’re talking peanut butter, chocolate and crunchy rice cereal. An unequaled combination. No matter what your skills are in the kitchen, you can’t go wrong with these Buckeye Mini Bites!

Peanut Butter Cups

Since Halloween is less than 24 hours away, I thought I’d share my favorite candy with you. Peanut butter and chocolate is pretty hard to beat. Whoever invented that fabulous combination deserves some kind of a price. Seriously. While I happen to have other favorites, Peanut Butter Cups are my first choice almost every time followed by Snickers. With the success of copying the famous Reese’s Cups, I am getting giddy just thinking about the endless possibilities of candy-making in the comfort of my own home. Did I mention that you’ll only need 2 ingredients to produce your own PB Cups? Yes, it’s true – easy, peasy, out-of this-world-lip-smacking Chocolate Cups filled with rich and creamy peanut butter are about to boggle your mind. Here we go!
