3 Ingredient Thin Mints

Today we are doing this.

3 Ingredient Thin Mints by Deliciously Yum!

With Girl Scout Cookie Season right around the corner, I thought I’d get a head start by making my own. Well, these are semi-homemade. And for good reason. Some things can never be replicated. Simply because the iconic taste of something we truly love and are used to is really hard to reproduce. If you call something a copycat version it better be pretty close to the real thing. Know what I mean? It’s the worst when somebody promises you something that tastes just like the real deal only to be negatively surprised. To say I was a bit skeptic about making these cookies would be an understatement.

But I had full confidence in my ingredients. I wasn’t going to play with making my own dough and cutting out a million tiny circles (not that I mind), only to be disappointed when it comes to the taste factor. I figured that no matter what these turned out to taste like, they would undoubtedly be delicious since the starring ingredients are all lovely on their own.

And were they ever. Not only did they hold up to what I had envisioned, but they tasted exactly like the original Thin Mints. I was floored and have had the hardest time keeping them from you. No more stocking up on box after box and stretching your patience until you’re able to get your hands on another box, Thin Mint Season consists of 365 days from now on. [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…]

Flourless Chocolate S’more Cookies

Flourless Double Chocolate Smore Cookies by Deliciously Yum!

It is official! Minnesota is trying to become the coldest place on earth. The Governor closed all schools in the entire State for today. With a temperature of -57 degrees (including wind chill), we have declared a pajama day. There is absolutely no way I’ll be stepping a single foot out of our door, which means hot chocolate and tea will be my best friends today. Oh, and these cookies. As I sat contemplating the drastic temperatures we were about to encounter, I couldn’t help but dream about warmer weather. And what is better than a perfectly roasted marshmallow paired with a piece of chocolate and hugged by two graham cracker halves? Possibly these cookies. Flourless Chocolate S’more Cookies to be exact.

Salted Chocolate Dipped Mandarin Slices

I hope you had the most wonderful Christmas this year. After all the indulgent food and sweets we consumed over the last couple of days (chocolate fondue, anyone?), I was in the mood for a healthy yet satisfying snack. As we sat dipping all sorts of fruits, marshmallows, and pretzels into the ever-continuing stream of chocolaty-goodness of our chocolate fountain, I was reminded of a recipe I had seen a couple of years ago on Food Network. Slices of mandarins or clementines dunked in chocolate… only this time I decided to sprinkle sea salt on top. If I had to live on this snack for the rest of my life, you would hear no objection from me! It’s the most addictive thing I’ve eaten in a long time.

There’s no better time to enjoy these than right now. Mandarin Oranges are so abundant and couldn’t be tastier. Extremely sweet and juicy – loved and adored by young and old. You might have some laying around the house todays since it’s a common stocking stuffer. Turn them into this fun and gorgeous snack!

I may or may not have devoured this entire bowl in one sitting. It holds segments of about 4 mandarin oranges, which means I got plenty of Vitamin C and antioxidants that day. Living healthy is outrageously tasty! [Read more…]
