Because it truly feels like Spring around here, which means we’ll be spending as much time as possible outside in the next couple of months, I’ve been thinking about desserts that are perfect to prepare for warmer weather.

My longing for a bonfire and sitting outside long after it’s gotten dark, might also have something to do with today’s sweet treat. Nothing says warm weather more than s’mores. Crunchy graham crackers, gooey marshmallows, and melted chocolate. One of the best inventions ever, for sure.

The only thing better than enjoying an actual s’more with a freshly roasted marshmallow, is an entire pan of s’mores bars whipped up in less than 10 minutes with minimal effort.

I can’t think of a bar recipe that’s easier and more delicious than this one. [Read more…]

Easter Brownies

Brownies are one of the most loved desserts no matter the occasion, but this Easter version deserves special recognition!

Welcome to a new week, friends! I can officially say that I’ve caught the Easter bug. That’s bug and not bunny, ha! After the weather started to decline over the last couple of weeks, I had a hard time getting into the mood. But I’m happy to report that I’m all in. It’s amazing what a couple of sprinkles, pastel Easter eggs and chocolate can do for you. Also, the temps are looking to be much, much warmer – just in time for an outdoor Easter egg hunt this coming weekend. I’m talking about the little cousins and not us, of course.

We actually started things off yesterday with our first family get together for Easter. Which was the perfect time to whip out a brownie recipe I had been working on for the last couple of weeks.

I know I have plenty of recipes featuring homemade brownies on this blog already, but the itch for perfection and my all-time favorite brownie recipe never went away. And I doubt that it ever will. Much like I can’t choose a favorite of all the cookie recipes I’ve developed and written about. I seriously love them all. It really just depends on what mood I’m in or craving at the moment. And right now I simply can’t get enough of super fudgy, extra chocolaty (triple chocolate) and unbelievably chewy brownies.

Loaded with some of Easter’s finest candy. Sounds good? Let’s dive right in! [Read more…]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Stack

Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cheesecake, and Chocolate Ganache collide into one breathtaking dessert.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Stack

Happy Monday, friends! Our outdoor adventures turned into full on spring cleaning over the weekend. Both of us were exhausted by the end of Sunday, but it was well worth it. As long as the weather is nice, I don’t even care what we’re up to. After being cooped up inside for quite some time while winter lasted, I find it funny how excited we were to sweep the garage or take down our outdoor Christmas lights, ha! Hopefully we’ll continue to feel that way once weekly lawn mowing duties come around too… Even though I was running low on energy, I still had enough strength to whip up something delicious in our tiny little kitchen.

The result was anything but small. If you’re deciding to give this a go, you are in for an utterly satisfying, rich and decadent treat. Though it requires a little bit of work and patience, it is well worth it in the end.

Chewy Chocolate Granola Bars

Make Chocolate Granola Bars in the comfort of your own home. You will never want to buy another box of granola bars from the store again!

Chewy Chocolate Granola Bars

It’s time for the weekend, everyone! Do you have anything fun planned? I think we’re ready to soak in the beautiful weather and let the sun do its magic. It sure is nice to feel the warmth and see the ground again (even though there’s not much to look at except for dead grass, ha). In preparation for our outdoor adventures this weekend, I started to get all sorts of ideas for snacks on the go that are wholesome and keep you fueled for physical exercise.

Chewy Chocolate Granola Bars

Granola Bars were the first thing that popped into my head. Not surprising since they are the snack of choice for Adam and me. Those little bars always seem to satisfy and are just the right amount to hold me over in the afternoon or when I’m feeling a bit peckish whilst on a hike or after a run.

I’ve prepared plenty of batches of granola bars in the past, but have never made chocolate the star of the show. Something I needed to change ASAP! [Read more…]

Happy Monday! Are you ready for a week of Valentine’s treats? If not, this is your fair warning. There may or may not be an abundance of chocolate, sprinkles and unbelievable desserts coming your way. Much like any other week, ha! I was definitely thinking about the upcoming romantic holiday and have something for everyone coming up. A no-bake treat, something a bit more fancy, and a yummy surprise that no one could say no to.

Let’s start out with a crowd-pleasing dessert bar. Red Velvet and Cheesecake definitely speak the language of love, especially when combined into one tasty creation.

These homemade bars are super easy to prepare, but I am sure they would impress just about anyone with taste buds and a craving for something sweet. I also love the fact that they can be prepared in just a couple of minutes and are totally make ahead friendly. In fact, they actually taste better if they had several hours to chill in the fridge.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Bars definitely get two thumbs up! [Read more…]
