Homemade English Toffee

Homemade English Toffee by Deliciously Yum!

Hi. Here’s another episode of candy Kathi loves. A couple months ago, I made Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars aka Snickers. And there is no way I would let this year come to an end without making another one of my absolute faves. Heath bars or anything else containing toffee is another thing I could never get enough of. It’s the crunchy, buttery caramelized base layer topped with chocolate. The addition of pecans and almonds adds even more crunch and a nutty flavor that goes so well with toffee.

It is beautiful to look at and tastes even more amazing. Need a last minute Christmas gift? Well, you can stop searching and start making this quick and easy Homemade English Toffee. No candy thermometer required!

Seriously. Who wouldn’t want a goodie bag filled with this sweet treat? Homemade gifts are always the best, especially when they’re either useful or yummy! Yep, I wouldn’t mind sitting under our tree munching on this toffee and singing Christmas carols fa-la-la-la-la… count yourself blessed that you weren’t able to listen to that. My singing skills are definitely not meant to be shared. Ha! [Read more…]

Chocolate Covered PB Cracker Sandwiches

Sometimes a long title is indispensable when describing a mouthwatering sensation. I really had no idea what to call these. Too good to be true? Yes, that one came in as a close second. I went for the obvious. Listing every. single. ingredient. In other words chocolate, peanut butter and crackers. The likelihood that you have all of these already on hand is pretty high. I did and had no idea what deliciousness these 3 could produce. No recipe was needed. I had seen pictures and figured they didn’t need much instruction – my sweet tooth took the lead.

It was love at first bite. There’s no question that these sweet sandwiches will make a yearly appearance from now on. I was in pure peanut butter and chocolate bliss. The salt from the crackers goes with the whole salted chocolate trend and couldn’t be more up my ally. So, so swoon-worthy!

And since I like pretty desserts and obviously can’t stop at simple, I decided to chop up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and drizzle chocolate on top of each sandwich cookie. Still smiling about that decision. Because really. What is better than peanut butter and chocolate if not more peanut butter and chocolate? [Read more…]

Double Peppermint Crunch Bark

Yep, we’re back to all things peppermint. Please blame Target and my weakness of being able to resist holiday candy in every shape or form. Have you tried Peppermint M & M’s yet? They have white chocolate inside and couldn’t have been a better fit for my Peppermint Bark dreams. I am a huge fan of crunchy things combined with rich and silky smooth chocolate. Needless to say, this bark disappeared within hours. It’s definitely a challenge to resist something this mouthwatering while trying to take some good pictures. I present to you Peppermint Galore!

Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars

HomemadeSnickers-DeliciouslyYum!

I have no words for this. Well, maybe one. RIDICULOUS. That’s exactly what these bars are. There is no way I could come even close to describing to you what these taste like. All I can say is that you’ll feel overwhelmingly happy. So much so that you won’t know what to do with yourself. It starts out with a huge smile, which quickly turns into uncontrollable giggles, followed by laughter and the slapping of anything and everyone you can find. You’ll be so enamored you might even start rolling on the kitchen floor… yep, you’ll be a complete loony. But hey, at least you have something to blame. Caramel Nougat Chocolate Bars are prepared to change your taste buds. Are you ready to give it a whirl? [Read more…]

Crispy Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

BetterThanAnythingBrownies

I am so sorry for sharing these brownies with you. Only because you won’t be able to stop thinking about these. I knew I had you at brownies. Oh, and peanut butter cups. But there’s more. Too many mouthwatering ingredients to possibly fit into one name. Triple Chocolate Chunk Brownies at the bottom. Peanut butter cups and salted peanuts form layer #2. And finally, rice cereal slathered in a concoction of creamy, dreamy peanut butter and luscious milk chocolate for the third and final layer. I think I will stop now. You know this is going to be delicious! [Read more…]
