Peanut Butter Cups

Since Halloween is less than 24 hours away, I thought I’d share my favorite candy with you. Peanut butter and chocolate is pretty hard to beat. Whoever invented that fabulous combination deserves some kind of a price. Seriously. While I happen to have other favorites, Peanut Butter Cups are my first choice almost every time followed by Snickers. With the success of copying the famous Reese’s Cups, I am getting giddy just thinking about the endless possibilities of candy-making in the comfort of my own home. Did I mention that you’ll only need 2 ingredients to produce your own PB Cups? Yes, it’s true – easy, peasy, out-of this-world-lip-smacking Chocolate Cups filled with rich and creamy peanut butter are about to boggle your mind. Here we go!

Homemade Nutella

Nutella

A simple recipe is here to sweeten Monday mornings. Do you love Nutella? It goes without saying that I do. Eating chocolate for breakfast? I mean, it really doesn’t get any better than that, does it? The addition of hazelnuts gives the spread a wonderfully nutty flavor; adding a whole new dimension to the silky, smooth taste. If you have never tried it, please go ahead and give it a go. For those of you that know all about the lusciousness in a jar – rejoice. This homemade version is just as tasty as the store-bought kind and is ready to enjoy in no time. [Read more…]

Ultimate Butterscotch Chocolate Pretzel Crunch Cookies

ButterscotchPretzelCookies

Can we talk about favorite things for a second? One of my absolute most sought after snacks the last couple of weeks have been Pretzel Crisps. I am hooked and can’t get enough! It all started one lovely fall morning whilst strolling through Costco. I usually try to avoid little stops at their various stands with free samples to try. I know better… so I thought. With lunch just around the corner and knowing that I would be home within the next 15 minutes to grab something wholesome, I had just about sidestepped every possible temptation. Thinking I was in the clear I averted my eyes from my targeted checkout lane (which was about 20 feet away from me), when I perceived and spotted Pretzel Crisps. Thanking the lovely gentleman who handed me the tiny cup and taking my first bite, I immediately knew I had made a mistake. I ended up leaving the store without purchasing a bag of my new discovery, but couldn’t stop thinking about them. Needless to say, I returned a week later and purchased a bag of Dark Chocolate Crunch Pretzel Crisps. Don’t you just love the name? Waiting an entire week to make my return, I couldn’t help but dream of recipes that would feature the “reinvented pretzel”. Get ready for an overload of mouthwatering pictures showcasing Ultimate Butterscotch & Chocolate Pretzel Crunch Cookies! [Read more…]

Oreo Cookies

This week must be the week of copycat recipes here at Deliciously Yum! We kicked off the week with Chicken and Gnocchi Soup – inspired by a popular restaurant favorite. Today we’ll take a look at Homemade Oreo Cookies.  Oreos are one of my favorite store-bought cookies. They are perfect for dunking into a tall glass of milk and who doesn’t like to take them cookies apart to get to the luscious cream inside? Do you enjoy the whole cookie or are you a twister like me? I tend to savor my food and always try to make it last as long as possible. Now that you developed a craving for Oreos but might not have any on hand, here’s how you make them. [Read more…]

Fudge Brownies

FudgyBrownies

How about a pan of homemade brownies to start off your week? Fudge Brownies to be exact. Brownies are the ideal dessert for pretty much any occasion. Fresh, warm brownies that are slightly gooey are my absolute favorite. I also happen to love the convenience of this one bowl dessert. When I started my search for the perfect brownie recipe, I wanted to preserve the simplicity of these fabulous bars without sacrificing taste. You see, I had tried many brownie recipes from scratch but somehow never came across a recipe that would have me happily ditch the boxed kind. I missed the fudgy, dense, and somewhat crispy layer and sides. Homemade brownies always reminded me of chocolate cake, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing – except for when you’re craving a fabulous brownie to sink your teeth into. Well, I am proud to announce that I have cracked the code. This recipe was crowned first place. Oh, how I love winning; it tastes absolutely delicious! [Read more…]
