Ooey Gooey Brookies

Brookie Bars are the ultimate sweet treat. Combining chocolate chip cookies and brownies into one mouthwatering dessert.

Ooey Gooey Brookies

The 4th of July is tomorrow, guys. I am sure y’all are more than aware and are looking forward to celebrating. Which is exactly why I’m breaking out a super indulgent dessert bar for all of us. I don’t care what season we’re in or what the weather is doing, chocolate chip cookies and/or brownies are always a good idea. Only made better by combining the two and ending up with one absolutely insane & utterly delicious mash up.

Ooey Gooey Brookies

I’ve always had a deep love for mash ups, especially when it comes to sweet treats. Why settle for one when you can have 2 or 3 all at once? It has to be done well though. I don’t like to just throw a whole bunch of things together and hope that the flavors will complement each other and create an awesome bite.

When it comes to mash ups, I like to be able to recognize what I’m about to devour. Even though this is a compilation of sorts, keeping some separation and definition is still important. I hope you catch my drift… Brookies aren’t a new invention or anything. They’ve been around for quite some time and have clearly stood the test of time. They’re exactly what I hope for in a good mash up and they always get rave reviews. [Read more…]

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate come together to create cookies that taste just like Peanut Butter Cups.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies (Gluten-Free)

Hi Everyone! Am I posting a recipe on a Thursday? Yes, it’s happening. I’m so sorry to anyone who loves routine (just like me) and has been thrown off by my posting schedule lately. As you can see, I have a new recipe for you today and another one coming tomorrow. I’ll be returning to my regular schedule (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) next week. Just thought I’d fill you in ;).

The wait for today’s recipe was well worth it though. Ever since making these cookies, I have been on pins and needles to finally fill you all in. Because Peanut Butter Cup Cookies should be shared with as many people as possible. They’re are incredible.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies (Gluten-Free)

The best part is that they’re also gluten-free. Judging from the amount of comments and questions I get to come up with a gluten-free cookie recipe, I know that there are quite a few of you that will be excited about this one. I baked, tested and finally came out with a winner. It took me a while to get the cookies just right. Achieving the same taste and texture of “regular” chocolate chip cookies was my goal. And I’m certain I’ve succeeded. [Read more…]

Loaded M&M Oreo White Chocolate Fudge

White Chocolate Fudge that’s been studded with M&M’s and Oreos. One of the tastiest small bites around!

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…]

Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

A Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake that’s healthy?! Yes, yes indeed.

Hands up for thick, rich, creamy, and just the right mix between chocolate and peanut butter. Skip the drive-thru and enjoy a “milkshake” that you can be proud of and will leave you feeling beyond fantastic.

Today’s concoction is the perfect example of breakfast, lunch or even dinner in a pinch. That’s how filling and satisfying this milkshake is. You could, of course, sip on it post-workout as well. And by making one simple addition you can totally amp up the protein in this shake.

I don’t know about you, but I usually don’t care for protein powder. The taste, texture (grittiness, to be exact), and flavor is something I’ve never gotten quite used to. And yes, I’ve tried many different kinds. But blended into this amazing shake, you get all the benefits you want from protein powder but without any of the negative affects.

Whether you decide to add protein powder or not, this shake is equally as delicious. [Read more…]

This Triple Lemon Poke Cake will tickle your senses. It’s so moist, lemony and melts in your mouth!

Glazed Lemon Poke Cake

This post has been a long time coming. I don’t think I’ve ever struggled to bake/develop a recipe as much as I have with this one. Pretty sure I’ve been working on a lemon cake in loaf form ever since starting Deliciously Yum. I seriously thought it’d be one of those recipes I could whip up in no time and post on the same day. Well, almost 2 years and who knows how many failed attempts later, here it is.

Glazed Lemon Poke Cake

And I couldn’t be happier with the outcome, you guys. If I didn’t think this ones the ONE, you wouldn’t be reading about it. I would have waited another 2 years if I knew this cake was the outcome. 

If you love lemons as much as I do, run into your kitchen now! This poke cake is calling your name. [Read more…]
