Salted Caramel Apple Stuffed Chocolate Crumb Muffins

Welcome back, everyone. Are you ready for the first fall weekend of the year? Do you have anything fun planned?

Adam and I were planning on hitting the trails at a State Park in northern Minnesota this weekend to take in the fall foliage, but it looks like we’ll be waiting another week or so. Because the weather through all of September has been absolutely beautiful here. Warm, sunny and picture-perfect, really. One wouldn’t even know fall has officially arrived by walking outside. I can’t remember leaving the house in a t-shirt and shorts this late in September since like forever. While we’re anxiously awaiting the fall colors to arrive, I am more than happy to spend yet another weekend soaking in the sun and pretending that summer is never going to end.

Yes, I adore all things summer, but that doesn’t mean that I am not craving the best fall has to offer. Pumpkin spice lattes (Dunkin Donuts’ are the bomb), fall-scented candles, layering clothes and wearing boots, fresh apples and pumpkins… I could go on and on. Oh, and don’t forget about the food. Comforting, hearty, warm and oh so satisfying.

To be honest, I’ve been dreaming of the amazing food creations for months now. The muffins you see here were swirling around my head for so long – I’m BEYOND pumped to finally get to share them with you today! [Read more…]

Happy Friday to you. This weekend will be the first one in several weeks that we don’t have anything special planned. And I am more than okay with that. Don’t get me wrong, I am always up for an adventure, an experience or a spontaneous trip, but getting to spend 2 full days with no plans and my favorite person, is giving me all the excited feels. In preparation, I decided to whip up a batch of cookies that would help us to properly relax and enjoy the days ahead.

Twix Cookies

Over the top cookies inspired by Twix candy bars, to be exact. If you have a thing for homemade shortbread cookies, chewy caramel, and a thick layer of chocolate, then I don’t think you need much convincing to try them for yourself.

Twix Cookies are the ultimate treat! [Read more…]

Chocolate Caramel Mini Tarts with Pretzel Crust

Happy Monday to you. I hope you’re in the mood for something salty, sweet, chocolaty and oh-so decadent. Yup, we’re continuing the love for all things caramel that started (once again) last Friday and also continuing on with the theme of preparing things I’ve never made before. The success of my first ever cupcakes posted on the blog, certainly gave me enough confidence to try my hand at other desserts that have been swirling around in my head, aka Tarts. So, as I set out to purchase a tart pan and inevitably stumbled upon mini versions, I basically bolted out of the store and headed straight for the kitchen. Inspiration struck at lightening speed. Caramel! Chocolate! Pretzels! Mini Tarts! Sooo much excitement.

I was totally up for the challenge of making everything from scratch, but to be honest, I was mostly just hoping that my tart experiment would be successful in the flavor and taste department. Thinking about combining 3 of my favorite things into one epic dessert, basically had me drooling during the ride home.

Little did I know how adorable, beautiful and absolutely mouthwatering these tarts would turn out to be. Mini tarts seriously have it going on! [Read more…]

It’s Friday! I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time. Easter is one of my very favorite holidays. I certainly love any occasion that allows me to prepare some special treats and go all out in the food department. And don’t even get me started on the candy. I am smitten by those cute Lindt chocolate bunnies every year – the perfect treat for any Easter basket, if you ask me :).

But this weekend means so much more. I am beyond humbled that I get to celebrate and rejoice in the life God has given me through his Son, Jesus Christ. I already cannot wait to wake up Sunday morning, go to church and proclaim once again that Christ is risen! Now and forever. I’m getting goose bumps just thinking about it.

It is my prayer, that you, my lovely readers, know Christ and receive the gift that he so generously offers to all of us. I’ve never mentioned this before, but I often pray for everyone that visits Deliciously Yum to develop an eternal relationship with the one and only Savior. So much sweeter, more satisfying and awesome than anything I could ever whip up in my kitchen….

Although, the sweet treats that are waiting for you today are beyond mouthwatering and absolutely incredible! [Read more…]

Turtle Bites

One of the easiest and tastiest sweet treats you can make in the comfort of your own home. The perfect crowd pleaser as well!

Hello Friday! The weekend is finally here and I’m in the mood for something slightly salty, a lot of sweet, and a tad bit of crunch. How about you? Also, lazy Friday nights call for easy peasy snacks… at least in my books. The last thing I want to do after the work week is spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I love our little kitchen, but after a long day I’d much prefer our couch, ha.

That’s right. The hubby and I are the kind of crazy people that love to stay in, watch a movie aka Netflix, and enjoy some mouthwatering food. Yup, we’re old young people. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Homemade food, a comfy spot and my handsome man – can you blame me?

Even better when you have Turtle Bites nearby ;). [Read more…]
