Let me introduce you to my new favorite snack. Favorite may be an understatement. Every day for the past four days after returning home from work, I immediately open the fridge and pull out 3 to 4 of these amazing bites. I am practically drawn to them after thinking about these for most of the day. I just can’t help it.

I may have created the best no-bake snack to ever come out of my kitchen. And I am not exaggerating.

As I set out on creating a little afternoon snack, I wasn’t going for anything brownie related. I simply started adding ingredients I thought would go well together and once I gave it a taste, all I could think of was fudge brownies. Rich, chocolaty and extremely addicting! [Read more…]

3 Ingredient Thin Mints

Today we are doing this.

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…]

Swirled No-Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

So, this happened.

Swirled No-Bake Reeses Peanut Butter Bars by Deliciously Yum!

Here’s how: after drinking 3 large cups of tea (with the help of my new Keurig – love that thing), trying to concentrate on reading and keeping myself occupied with housework, I was no longer able to resist the urge of entering my kitchen to whip up something containing loads and loads of peanut butter. It goes without saying that chocolate had to be part of the cast of characters because you never separate best friends. Peanut Butter & Chocolate = BFF.

You see, I was avoiding our kitchen all morning because I knew that me being trapped in the house with a pan of these bars could cause major damage. To my waistline, thank you very much, MN Snow/Frozen Tundra Day. The fact that these bars take almost no time to make or work to prepare, wasn’t helping my case. I was left with no excuse why I had to stock up on calories after working so very hard in the kitchen. But yeah, I still could not be deterred from eating an undisclosed amount of these.

Do not keep reading if you’re planning on keeping your food-related resolution this year. Unless you’re in need of lots of protein, which these bars are totally delivering. [Read more…]
