Welcome to another week! Did you have a good weekend? Mine is pretty much summarized by these cookies. Cookies are my ultimate comfort food, especially when they come with plenty of chocolate chips, caramel and the awesomeness of pumpkin. I worked hard on these, friends.

I have had my fair share of cakey pumpkin cookies, which isn’t necessarily a negative thing. While they can be just as delicious, I wanted a pumpkin cookie that tastes just like a cookie should. Complete with crispy edges, ultimate chewiness and zero disappointment.

And after perfecting THE pumpkin cookie recipe, I couldn’t help but add ooey gooey caramel to each one. I thought it couldn’t get much better, but the addition of caramel definitely stepped things up.

Once you go caramel stuffed there’s no going back. I may never make “regular” cookies again. [Read more…]

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Pie

Cinnamon Rolls in the form of Pie studded with Crisp Apples, Caramel Bits and drizzled with Two Luscious Glazes!

I am giving in to fall baking. It’s happening and I couldn’t be more excited about it, especially if that means we get to eat things like what I am sharing with you today. My caramel-apple-cinnamon-roll-pie dreams are coming true. Finally. I have been thinking about some kind of a caramel apple cinnamon roll concoction forever now, which means probably 2-3 weeks for me, ha.

Seriously, thinking about the perfect way to pair those three completely occupied my mind. Once I had the idea, I tried to hold out on executing simply because I refused to get an early start on all things fall. You know how anticipation makes things almost always better, like so much better?! Well, I think that might have happened with this pie.

I doubt that it could taste anything but delicious, but after taking my first bite of this, I almost fell into a foodie coma. I am pretty sure my taste buds had no idea what was happening…. but they couldn’t get enough of this breakfast/dessert mash up. [Read more…]

Four Layer Everything Crunch Bars

 Four layers made of everything delicious you can possibly imagine in a dessert bar. They are rich, satisfying and oh so good!

What can I say? I have no excuse for this one. All I knew was that I had to know what these bars taste like the moment I stumbled upon this recipe. Anything that consists of layers and has so many of my favorites combined into one, needed to be made as soon as humanly possible.

There is so much going on here, I barely know where to start. Is this the moment where I should use the phrase “A picture says more than a thousand words”? Haha, just kidding. There’s no way I could not tell you about them!

What is your must-have when it comes to the perfect dessert? Peanut Butter, chocolate, caramel, something crunchy, chocolate or something fabulous like nougat? Check, check, and check. These bars clearly have it all.

If you’re a lover of all things sweet, you need this recipe in your life. [Read more…]

Triple Chocolate Caramel Drizzle Cookies

Triple Chocolate Caramel Drizzle Cookies by Deliciously Yum!

As promised, we are putting to good use the Salted Caramel Sauce we made yesterday. For me, the combination of salty and sweet doesn’t shine more than through a cookie. And there is no better recipe to do it with than this one. These dark, fudgy, and triple chocolate cookies are beyond delicious all on their own, but once you stuff them with caramel, you will never look back.

The reason why I am so enamored with these cookies is that they taste like individual brownies. It’s the best thing ever. Especially since I’ve been on a brownie kick lately.

Aren’t you glad you don’t have to choose between cookie and brownie today? Since I am beyond indecisive, I am always relieved when I don’t have to make a choice between two things I absolutely adore. You can’t lose. [Read more…]

Take Five Bites

Take Five Bites by Deliciously Yum!

I’ve been on a no-bake kick the last couple of days. I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had throwing things together and see what the outcome is. Peanut butter has been in the center of it all. You can pretty much pair anything with that delicious nut butter and have a fabulous-tasting concoction. After all of my experimenting, I had some leftover ingredients. As I looked at the caramels, pretzels, leftover chocolate bars, peanuts, and peanut butter, one thing came to mind. I had everything on hand to make my very own version of Take 5 candy bars. There are no words how excited I was. Yep, I’m easily entertained.

Oh, and the fact that I added a sprinkling of sea salt to the top probably won’t surprise you. Pretty much anything containing chocolate deserves a sprinkling of coarse salt. That’s the beauty about making your own version of something you love – you can make it even better by adding other ingredients you can’t live without. Brilliant! [Read more…]
