This fancy dessert is a cinch to prepare, but isn’t near as simple when it comes to taste, you guys. This may be one of the best chocolate treats yet. It’s hard to put into words how wonderful it really is. Creamy, rich, silky and indulgent are a few words that instantly come to mind. This dessert is definitely upping the game when it comes to my chocolate obsession.

Another recipe I’ve been wanting to make for the longest time and finally checked off my list. Oh, and it was quickly added to the list of things to make over and over again. Because it’s da bomb.

Twix Bars

An easy recipe for Twix Bars. Dare I say they’re better than the actual candy bar?!

It feels like an eternity since I’ve last made you a pan of bars. Almost 3 weeks, which is about 2 1/2 weeks too long, if you live in my world. Whenever I develop a craving for some fabulous bars I am convinced that all of you must feel the same way. I don’t even know where this blog would be without them and have an inkling that most of you amazing readers are big fans as well. Immaright?!

Also, candy. I find it much easier to exclude candy I don’t like instead trying to make that difficult, gut-wrenching and basically impossible decision as to which is my favorite. Almond Joy, 3 Musketeers and Babe Ruth are the ones I could do without. There are just too many that are that much better and steal the show every time. Twix candy bars definitely rank high on my list. And because they’re the perfect thing to recreate, I couldn’t wait to make something that might be even better than the real thing – an entire pan filled with chocolaty, caramelly, and buttery goodness.

Glazed Donut Bread Pudding & Dreamy Custard Sauce

Bread Pudding made with Glazed Donuts, Chocolate Chips and topped with a Creamy Custard Sauce. Mmmmm!

I don’t even know where to begin. Just in case you have leftover donuts in the house, you might want to give this recipe a go. Also, if you actually have some on hand, you and I might not have much in common. In my world, leftover and donuts do not go together nor do they exist. Period.

I thought long and hard and am positive that we have never had “old” donuts in the Deliciously Yum household. Which means today’s recipe had to be carefully planned and I was in need of some serious supervision.

I enlisted the help of 1 husband, 3 kitties (who would have loved to share those glazers with me. Anyone else’s cats crazy for bready things? We found out one summer that 3 felines and a bag of hamburger buns can turn into a cat feast in a matter of minutes. Who knew and who can blame them?), and 2 guinea pigs.

As you can see I made it, though it wasn’t without struggles. But it was 150% worth it.

A seriously genius way to get your cookie fix. Baked in a cast iron skillet, bursting with Nutella and cookie perfection!

Welcome back, everyone! There is no time for small talk today. We have some cookie business to discuss.

I am sure you’ve come across skillet cookies aka pizookies on the internets over the last couple of months. I’ve been seeing them everywhere and even though I’ve been the proud owner of a cast iron skillet since May of this year, I stayed away from creating any types of dessert with it because I had an inkling it’d be dangerous. But I have to admit that’s the first thing that popped into my head when I purchased mine at a flea market while we were on a family vacation.

I actually couldn’t wait to put it to use once we got back. And boy oh boy, have I been loving it. While I’ve come to use it for pretty much every meal I prepare, I finally caved and made dessert last Saturday. While I am sure there were other options, I just knew I had to go with some kind of skillet cookie.

I don’t think you need an explanation as to why. All I have to say is, go get your stretchy pants on and start making this unbelievable treat! [Read more…]

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend. We have had the most beautiful weather over the last couple of days. Combined with the gorgeous colors of fall everywhere, it was a hard one to beat. It just feels a little weird that it’s getting dark out so early now. The sun seems to be setting anytime between 5:30 and 6 at night, which has caused my hubby and I to long for bed as soon as it hits 8 o’clock, ha. Daylight savings time can’t come soon enough ;).

The other night I did manage to stay up later since I was working on these bars though. It’s not that they take a long time to make, but the idea for these jumped into my head out of nowhere.

And sometimes I just can’t wait to give something a whirl. Guess what I was dreaming of that night?

That’s right. I couldn’t wait to get up and taste these incredible Cranberry Bars the next day! [Read more…]
