Lemon Pucker Bars

Lemon Pucker Bars by Deliciously Yum

I know. It’s still Christmastime and all, which doesn’t really scream lemon. Unless you think about Vitamin C and keeping colds and other things far, far away. Yes, lemon suddenly does make sense. I wasn’t really going for health food when I baked these gorgeous bars though. Butter, sugar and a little more butter don’t qualify as said food, but I’ll take anything that gives me a good excuse to take a bite out of these scrumptious bars. [Read more…]

Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars

HomemadeSnickers-DeliciouslyYum!

I have no words for this. Well, maybe one. RIDICULOUS. That’s exactly what these bars are. There is no way I could come even close to describing to you what these taste like. All I can say is that you’ll feel overwhelmingly happy. So much so that you won’t know what to do with yourself. It starts out with a huge smile, which quickly turns into uncontrollable giggles, followed by laughter and the slapping of anything and everyone you can find. You’ll be so enamored you might even start rolling on the kitchen floor… yep, you’ll be a complete loony. But hey, at least you have something to blame. Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars are prepared to change your taste buds. Are you ready to give it a whirl? [Read more…]

Spiced Crumb Bars

Monday Morning is here to welcome you with a sweet start to your week. I sure hope you had a wonderful weekend! We spent the last couple of days studying and getting caught up on housework. My husband was frequently found with his head buried in textbooks – preparing for the second out of three exams he has to take for his job this morning. I know you will do great, honey! While he was busy I was able to catch up on chores and fun projects. Sunday morning was filled with a family photo shoot of dear friends of ours . Fall is in full swing and we had to take advantage of its beauty. A Green Bay Packer win and a birthday party was the perfect way to end our days off. In hopes of sweetening the beginning of another week, I decided to make some scrumptiously Spiced Crumb Bars. I adore any dessert that’s topped with a crunchy and buttery topping. There’s just something about melting two layers of different textures together and enjoying both of them in one bite. Moist bars and crispy yumminess make a perfect team! [Read more…]

Fudge Brownies

FudgyBrownies

How about a pan of homemade brownies to start off your week? Fudge Brownies to be exact. Brownies are the ideal dessert for pretty much any occasion. Fresh, warm brownies that are slightly gooey are my absolute favorite. I also happen to love the convenience of this one bowl dessert. When I started my search for the perfect brownie recipe, I wanted to preserve the simplicity of these fabulous bars without sacrificing taste. You see, I had tried many brownie recipes from scratch but somehow never came across a recipe that would have me happily ditch the boxed kind. I missed the fudgy, dense, and somewhat crispy layer and sides. Homemade brownies always reminded me of chocolate cake, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing – except for when you’re craving a fabulous brownie to sink your teeth into. Well, I am proud to announce that I have cracked the code. This recipe was crowned first place. Oh, how I love winning; it tastes absolutely delicious! [Read more…]
