Seven Layer Bars

One of my all-time favorite cookie bars. It’s hard not to love a bar with a beautiful graham cracker crust, seven layers and sweetened condensed milk.

Seven-Layer-Bars

Hi there! Did you have a good weekend? Around these parts, we enjoyed spending time with family, eating good food and celebrating Easter, of course. I always look forward to Sunday Morning. There’s nothing like getting ready for church, eating a special breakfast and attending worship at our church.

Needless to say, Easter is really close to my heart. I had the opportunity to sing in our church choir this past weekend, and watching countless hands being lifted up while singing songs to God never gets old. I still get goosebumps just thinking about it. Since worship was so sweet and fulfilling, I figured dessert needed to follow suit.

And what better than a pan of bars that consists of 7 layers?? I have been wanting to create this recipe for some time now. It’s practically been burning a hole through my notebook of things to make.

Let’s just say these bars were the appropriate goodies to make for a joy-filled and fun day! [Read more…]

Nutella Rice Krispie Easter Candy Mashup Brownies

Fudgy Brownies topped with your favorite Easter candies and a layer of Nutella Rice Krispie Treats. No, you’re not dreaming. This is really happening!

Give me two minutes in the Easter candy isle at Target and something like this is the only possible outcome. Literally feeling like a kid in the candy store. Apparently not much has changed since I was 12 years old.

The only difference is that nobody can stop me from stocking up on candy (to last me a lifetime) and mixing it with Fudge Brownies and Nutella Rice Krispie Treats.

Being a grown-up does have its perks.

I am blaming my impatience on how these brownies came to be. I knew that I wanted to create bars that included Easter candies, but at the same time I really had a craving for Rice Krispie Treats and Nutella. I know! It’s that darn sweet tooth of mine. It really has a mind of its own. What can I say?

But instead of waiting to make Easter Candy Brownies and Nutella Rice Krispie Treats, I figured combining the two would be even better. And you probably guessed it by now.

It really was. I am smitten once again. [Read more…]

Loaded Quadruple Chip Cookie Bars

I made you one of the easiest and most incredible desserts today.

Loaded Quadruple Chip CookieBars by Deliciously Yum!

These cookie bars are a first for me. When I opened my cabinets last weekend, I was met with leftover baking chips in pretty much any variety. Lots of small quantities that I wanted to use up. Cookies were the first thing that popped into my mind, but I was running short on time and needed a one-pan dessert recipe that required little cleanup. So I started to think about my regular chocolate chip cookie recipe and decided to turn them into bars.

No idea why I never thought about doing that before. I mean, it’s like one giant cookie and you get to decide how big your piece is. Pretty much the best thing ever.

Lots and lots of chocolate in every bite. Ooey, gooey and perfectly melty. Anyone with a sweet tooth will go crazy for these, especially if you love cookies, then you are in for a real treat. [Read more…]

Not Your Average Scotcheroos

Let’s start Friday off right.

Not Your Average Scotcheroos by Deliciously Yum!

I have been dying to make a pan of Scotcheroos for quite some time now. Waiting for the right moment and a day on which my house wouldn’t have one too many sweets lying around. And then I thought to myself, is that really a realistic goal? As much as I love to share everything I make on this blog with our family and friends, we pretty much always have a couple of cookies and sweet delights stored somewhere.

Until the day we didn’t have any. And my husband’s family came over to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday. It was a Friday and I had been running around the house and trying to get some projects finished. Now I knew that we would be going out to eat and return to our house for present and game time, but I continued to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible that day.

Not until all of us were assembled in our living room, did it begin to dawn on me… we didn’t have a single item that contained chocolate chips in our cookie jar or anywhere else. My sister-in-law was quick to point out that I write a food blog, which centers around candy, brownies, and bars. I had no excuse. I was in disbelief myself.

So when I talk about starting Friday off right, I mean it. Never again will my home be treat-less. Anyone who enters our house from now on, won’t leave without a sweet surprise. The way it should be. [Read more…]

Swirled No-Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

So, this happened.

Swirled No-Bake Reeses Peanut Butter Bars by Deliciously Yum!

Here’s how: after drinking 3 large cups of tea (with the help of my new Keurig – love that thing), trying to concentrate on reading and keeping myself occupied with housework, I was no longer able to resist the urge of entering my kitchen to whip up something containing loads and loads of peanut butter. It goes without saying that chocolate had to be part of the cast of characters because you never separate best friends. Peanut Butter & Chocolate = BFF.

You see, I was avoiding our kitchen all morning because I knew that me being trapped in the house with a pan of these bars could cause major damage. To my waistline, thank you very much, MN Snow/Frozen Tundra Day. The fact that these bars take almost no time to make or work to prepare, wasn’t helping my case. I was left with no excuse why I had to stock up on calories after working so very hard in the kitchen. But yeah, I still could not be deterred from eating an undisclosed amount of these.

Do not keep reading if you’re planning on keeping your food-related resolution this year. Unless you’re in need of lots of protein, which these bars are totally delivering. [Read more…]
