Perfect Caramel Apples

Caramel Apples at last. Getting to the point of holding a perfect caramel apple in my hand was quite the ordeal. Batch number 1 involved burned caramel (always use a thermometer) and standing on my chair whilst waving a towel at my smoke detector. Our kitties were less than amused and neither was I.

The second batch decided to turn into a grainy mess and started to slip right off of my apples. Frustration levels were high. Very high.

Perfect Caramel Apples

I never got around to making caramel apples last year and as I was at the brink of giving up, I took another glance at my list of things to make. I couldn’t bear to see caramel apples still on said list waiting to be made the following year. It simply had to happen NOW.

I finally decided to ditch the new, fast, and so-called “easy” caramel recipes I had been playing with and went the traditional route. And guess what? Batch number 3 was what I call perfection. And even though it might seem a bit more involved than other recipes out there, it actually was quite simple, easy, and fairly quick. Who would have thought?

The moment I found out about them, I immediately went into my kitchen, whipped out everything I needed, and planned to surprise Adam.

Loaded M&M Oreo White Chocolate Fudge

If you’re a lover of m&m’s, oreos and white chocolate, this is the treat for you. Fudge in the middle of summer?! We’re totally doing it.

I don’t know why, but fudge has been a holiday staple for quite some time. I never really make it any other time of year, but upon realizing that I’ve never shared a fudge recipe with you, I decided to break the routine and whip it up anyway. Also, patience is not my strong suit and when I get really excited about a recipe, there’s no way I could wait another 5 months to tell you all about it.

Turns out, fudge is a fabulous treat to make in the summer. It’s a super quick, easy, and no-bake recipe. You don’t need any fancy equipment and just a few minutes of time. You all know that’s my very favorite kind of recipe.

Plus, it totally showcases chocolate and candy – which is basically the best thing eva! What’s not to love?

Loaded M&M Oreo White Chocolate Fudge

When thinking about my fudge debut, I really wanted to incorporate some of my all-time preferred goodies – oreos and m&m’s. You could, of course, choose any combo you like, but I’ve always been a big fan of the texture and crunch oreos add to fudge. And you can never go wrong with m&m’s. They’re pretty much self-explanatory. [Read more…]

Oh my! Can we take a second and talk about how awesome almond butter is? I realize that I might be the last food blogger/person on earth who had never tried it before. I am happy to report that my curiosity finally got the best of me and I bought a jar just a couple of days ago. The verdict – it’s completely empty.

A classic case of I didn’t know what I was missing, but I’m so glad I finally discovered it. Better late than never, for sure!

And before giving myself the chance to eat it straight out of the jar by the spoonfuls, I figured it would be best to do some recipe testing while I was at it.

So I returned to the store, grabbed a package of medjool dates, dark chocolate and got to work. The only thing I knew was that it needed to be something I could make in no time, would qualify as a healthy snack and crush all of my almond butter/sweet cravings. Check, check and check! [Read more…]

Chocolate Covered Coconut Caramel Bites

It’s Friday! I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time. Easter is one of my very favorite holidays. I certainly love any occasion that allows me to prepare some special treats and go all out in the food department. And don’t even get me started on the candy. I am smitten by those cute Lindt chocolate bunnies every year – the perfect treat for any Easter basket, if you ask me :).

But this weekend means so much more. I am beyond humbled that I get to celebrate and rejoice in the life God has given me through his Son, Jesus Christ. I already cannot wait to wake up Sunday morning, go to church and proclaim once again that Christ is risen! Now and forever. I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it.
