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!
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…]
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…]
