Chewy Chocolate Granola Bars

Make Chocolate Granola Bars in the comfort of your own home. You will never want to buy another box of granola bars from the store again!

Chewy Chocolate Granola Bars

It’s time for the weekend, everyone! Do you have anything fun planned? I think we’re ready to soak in the beautiful weather and let the sun do its magic. It sure is nice to feel the warmth and see the ground again (even though there’s not much to look at except for dead grass, ha). In preparation for our outdoor adventures this weekend, I started to get all sorts of ideas for snacks on the go that are wholesome and keep you fueled for physical exercise.

Granola Bars were the first thing that popped into my head. Not surprising since they are the snack of choice for Adam and me. Those little bars always seem to satisfy and are just the right amount to hold me over in the afternoon or when I’m feeling a bit peckish whilst on a hike or after a run.

I’ve prepared plenty of batches of granola bars in the past, but have never made chocolate the star of the show. Something I needed to change ASAP! [Read more…]

Happy, happy Friday! How was your week? Our home was struck by sickness this week. Ugh! Adam was down for most of the week with a stomach bug and I have been spared so far. I think I should be in the clear and am ready to enjoy a healthy and fun weekend with my man. If Fridays and getting better aren’t a great reason to celebrate, then I don’t know what is. And the best way to do so is with a big old pan of brownies. I am sure you agree.

I basically made my childhood dreams come true when I concocted the brownies you see here. Loaded with chocolate covered caramels, mini marshmallows and caramel popcorn. Oh, and there’s chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.

You will LOVE them! [Read more…]

Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownies with Chocolate Shavings

Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownies with Chocolate Shavings by Deliciously Yum!

I hope you’re hungry today. These brownies require a healthy appetite coupled with an incredible craving for chocolate and peanut butter. All I’ve been wanting to eat the last couple of days have been tomato soup and brownies. Odd? I think not. It makes perfect sense to me. These two things are what comfort food is all about. And believe me, we are in need of massive quantities of comfort and positive thoughts during yet another snow storm, scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

Not only do I feel like I’ve earned the right to replenish my burned calories of snow shoveling with sweet treats, but I’ve been enjoying this winter in regards to what it’s done to my creativity in the kitchen. Some of the best desserts have emerged as a result of being snowed in all day. These brownies are definitely part of that group!

Now don’t get me wrong, I would happily trade winter coats, boots, and hats for t-shirts, shorts and flip flops, but who knows if this crazy peanut butter frosting to brownie ratio would have been born. That’s what I love most about these treats. There are almost equal amounts of peanut butter and fudgy brownies in every bite. It’s as good as it’s gonna get, guys. [Read more…]

NYC Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s time to get down to business. This post was strategically planned for this day and time. It’s simply one of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. Yep, I said it. Not any more difficult or different than your average recipe, besides the chilling time and a couple of tweaks. Being patient pays off yet again. I am learning my lesson!

This is the moment to start your mixer. Right now! You will be rewarded with the most amazing soft, chewy, crispy, and melty warm goodness you can imagine. Memories are being made one perfect chocolate chip cookie at a time. Freshly baked cookies on Christmas morning are the best.

It’s the recipe that has been floating around the internets for quite some time. The one that The New York Times dubbed as the best chocolate cookie ever. I wouldn’t say it’s the best one ever, but it sure comes really close. It bakes beautifully and the instructions are spot on. You can definitely tell that it’s a recipe which has been thoroughly tested. I could never remember the original title of these cookies (which I guess is “The New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies”). All I knew was that it had something to do with New York – the reason for my title for the beloved recipe. [Read more…]

Chewy Salted Caramels

Thanksgiving Eve is here. I’ve always loved the Eve of any holiday or special occasion. The anticipation for what’s in store the following day feels so magical to me. Getting together with family, enjoying good food and just taking it all in is worth getting excited for. You probably have your Thanksgiving Day menu planned by now and are ready for the big day. If you feel like adding something sweet, these Chewy Salted Caramels should definitely be it. Even if you’re already set for the main meal, you may be looking for something fun to do on this long weekend. These caramels fit the bill just right. I mean, chewy, salted, and caramel. Do I really need to say more to convince you to make these? Yeah, didn’t think so.
