Brown Butter Salted Caramel Espresso Bars

I hope you’re in the mood for some epic bars today.

Recently, I found myself digging through my baking pantry and discovered a container of chocolate covered espresso beans. Pretty sure I purchased those on a whim one day in Trader Joe’s and decided to hide them from myself. Burying the container amidst large bags of flour, sugar, and everything else you could possibly need to satisfy your baking addiction. Because I cannot be trusted around them.

You know that awesome feeling when you find something unexpectedly like a $10 bill in a pair of jeans you’ve forgotten about? That’s what I felt like after discovering my hidden chocolate espresso beans. After waiting a couple of weeks due to my forgetfulness, I was all about making a pan of bars featuring those espresso beans that I would remember for years to come. [Read more…]

Happy Friday! So I guess today’s post should be entitled can’t stop won’t stop. Because my breakfast obsession is still going strong and so is my love for blueberries. You probably guessed by now that blueberries are my fruit of choice when it comes to the early hours of the day. Whether in yogurt, stirred into overnight oatmeal, or completely on their own, I could snack on them all day every day.

But the best way to enjoy those juicy & sweet little things is in the form of muffins, if ask me. Hands down.

This recipe was totally unplanned for me. I set out to make a batch just for the two of us when I realized that my go-to Blueberry Muffins have yet to be shared on da blog. Once I got over the shock, I grabbed my camera and captured what I call morning bliss. [Read more…]

My pumpkin dreams are coming true one recipe at a time. If you’re not a huge pumpkin fan, I am truly sorry. I promise I will make it up to you soon, but we have got to talk about this recipe first.

When the idea for pumpkin churros popped into my head, I could hardly wait to get into the kitchen and start making them. My mouth started watering at the thought of them and all I could think was I really hope this recipe turns out to be a success. In my head it seriously sounded too good not to.

I know what you might be thinking. Rice Krispie Treats. Really? We all know how to make them since they have been around forever.

Because I thought the same thing. Before attempting to make these, I was brainstorming ideas what else I could possibly add to these bars to bring them over the top.

Wait a second. We’re talking brown butter here. Outrageously nutty, buttery and reminiscent hints of caramel. Surely that had to be enough.

And boy was it ever.

It had been years since I had a “regular” rice krispie treat and together with the brown butter upgrade, these definitely hit the spot.

I actually reduced the amount of cereal to make them extra ooey gooey and packed a relatively large amount of the rice krispie mixture into the smallest baking pan I could find. Thick and melt-in-your-mouth awesomeness.

Do I need to say more? [Read more…]
