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…]

Death by Chocolate Bars

The fudgiest, richest and most indulgent Chocolate Bars ever. Finished with a Double Chocolate Ganache that’s almost too good to be true.

Hey hey. Did you have a good weekend? Mine is best described by these bars.

After almost an entire week filled with family, sunshine and relaxation, I was more than ready to return to the kitchen this weekend. And I had chocolate on my mind. I actually couldn’t decide between milk and semisweet chocolate when it came to these bars, so for the first time ever, I decided to combine the two and see what would happen.

Can I tell you that I have never tasted anything like these bars?! They’re pretty much a cross between brownies, chocolate cake and some fabulous fudge. The chewiness,  decadence and creaminess (thanks to a layer of amazing chocolate ganache), had me hooked at first bite. I could not keep myself from eating them.  

If you have a weakness for chocolate, buckle up. It’s about to get real. [Read more…]

Dreamy Strawberry Coconut Bars

A super Easy and Buttery Crust topped with Strawberry Jelly and finished with a Coconut Crumble.

Happy Wednesday, you guys. How about some yummy bars today? Since I apparently can’t get enough of berries and coconut, I just had to combine the two into one tasty treat. That’s what summer will do to me :).

I hope you’re on board with my current obsession because I can’t see an end in sight. There’s something about the beautiful weather that makes me go crazy for anything containing the naturally sweet taste of berries.

Not only do I love the combination going on here, but the fact that these are super light and therefore easy to devour, makes for one dreamy dessert.

My husband is the one who actually inspired these bars. Believe it or not, he isn’t the biggest chocolate fan and would go for anything containing fruit instead. I know – it’s pretty crazy, huh? And he loves my homemade jelly that I make and freeze every year for us to savor until strawberry season comes around again. And that’s exactly what I used for the middle layer in these – strawberry jelly. Mmmmm. You could totally swap out jam or any other fruit preserves you prefer, of course.

The important thing is that you give these a try :). [Read more…]

Oatmeal Carmelitas

 The combination of chocolate, caramel, and nuts is irresistible. I don’t know of anyone who is not tempted and enticed by these yummy bars.

I am sorry to be doing this to you. Being that summer is just a couple of days away and most of us are trying to get ready for swimsuit season. But sweet treats here and there are still allowed in my house. Plus, there’s oatmeal in these. Does that count as a semi-healthy dessert? I think yes.

Carmelitas have always been one of my favorite bars. How funny is it that I had never made my own before? As I sat eating my bowl of oatmeal the other morning, I looked down and was instantly reminded of those scrumptious bars. I am not surprised my mind wanders from breakfast to dessert. The sweet wheel never stops spinning :). [Read more…]

Monster Cookie Bars

 Monster Cookies Bars stuffed with everything you could possibly want or imagine. One of my very favorite cookies in bar form.

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? The last couple of days just seemed to be flying by for us and I seriously can’t believe Monday is already here. Time sure goes by fast when you’re having fun!
We got to celebrate a graduation on Friday, traveled to Iowa to spend time with my best friend’s family and her new baby boy and finally got together for Mother’s Day yesterday. Love all the wonderful people we are so blessed to have in our lives and that we get to be part of theirs.

Since we’ll be attending quite a few more parties and outings in the next couple of months, I started to think of new dessert ideas that I could bring with us. Cookies and bars were certainly on top of my list and since I have a hard time making up my mind, I once again combined the two.

One of my major weaknesses are Monster Cookies. So when these wonderful cookies crossed my mind, I didn’t hesitate to turn them into bars. [Read more…]
