No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bars

Make the chewiest, fudgiest and most scrumptious No-Bake Bars ever. They’re all about chocolate, peanut butter and coconut!

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Bars

No-Bake Bars, you guys. Hands down one of my favorite things to make. It never ceases to amaze me how many different versions/combinations you can come up with when it comes to no-bake recipes. They’re highly adaptable and can be changed in so many different ways. I think I like making them so much because when it comes to actual baking, precision is critical. Measuring correctly and following instructions is so important.

Not when it comes to no-bake wonders, though. You can pretty much guesstimate and throw together anything you have a craving for. I have never had a no-bake treat I didn’t like.

This one surpassed my expectations. As the recipe title indicates, there’s plenty of chocolate, coconut, and peanut buttery goodness to be found in each bite. But, there’s more. More coconut (in the form of coconut oil), a healthy amount of pecans for texture and yummy oats.

How can this combo not be delightful? [Read more…]

PB and Jelly Bars

 Peanut Butter and Jelly aren’t just best friends when it comes to sandwiches anymore. They’re taking over the dessert world and together make for some utterly scrumptious, delicious, and fun bars.

PB and Jelly Bars

We’re bringing Peanut Butter and Jelly back. At least in the Deliciously Yum Home. I can’t remember the last time I had a pb & jelly sandwich. Probably sometime back in High School. I have no idea why, but my husband decided to break out the peanut butter and jelly jars and devour one sandwich after the other over the last week or so. And I immediately took inspiration, of course.

We’re basically looking at cookie bars. The crust and crumbly topping resemble a chewy peanut butter oatmeal cookie. With a generous layer of strawberry preserves in the middle.

Hi guys! I hope all of you had the loveliest of weekends. This time of year is calling me into the kitchen. I can’t help but be drawn to my oven (or freezer in this case) and play with new recipes. Most of which have been turning out quite well. Except for those Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Bars I made last week. They basically looked like coal in the shape of tiny bricks and the taste was less than desirable. A single bite is all it took to knowing that something went terribly wrong. And don’t even get me started on the texture. No, just no. One of these days I’ll hopefully be able to redeem them, but for now I’d like to forget about my big baking disaster.

So I turned to my freezer instead. I was looking for redemption. Sweet, sweet redemption. Though in serious doubt that my second healthier recipe of the day featuring some unusual ingredients would give me what I was looking for, I decided to give it a whirl anyway.

Little did I know what a pleasant surprise I was preparing. The proof is in the pie. Determination is quite delicious. [Read more…]

Hi Everyone! Fair warning: If you’re on a diet you might want to avert your eyes right this second. Especially if you’re having a weakness for chocolate, brownies, or peanut butter. Everyone else, come a little closer. See those layers of brownies, the inside of a peanut butter cup and some swirled chocolate? Good. Because they’re eyeing you as well. Begging to be made ASAP :). I’m speaking from experience, guys. These bars have me wrapped around their tiny cuter-than-life pb cups. Very tightly.

It all happened on a very exciting Sunday afternoon. Let’s just say a certain professional football team happened to beat the Cowboys and we celebrated like real fans should. Victory tastes so much better when one has something fabulous to snack dive into.

Needless to say, I am ready for another Sunday to roll around. But while I wait, let me fill you in on the recipe deets. Because no matter who you’re rooting for (even if no one strikes your fancy), we can all unite when it comes to dessert. Oh – the power of food. [Read more…]

Take 5 Cookies

Chocolate Cookies inspired by my most loved candy bar – Take 5.

Things are getting real. Thanksgiving is almost here and I’m preparing by munching on some fabulous cookies. Because no matter how busy things get, there’s always time to take a cookie break. And no holiday would be complete without them.

Right now I am just trying to soak in the excitement before the big day. Since the “eves” of holidays are one of my favorite parts of any special occasion, I already woke up giddy this morning.

One more night and I’ll be able to eat all the stuffing I possibly can. That’s right I am all about that stuffing. What about you? What are you looking forward to the most?

But in the meantime, I’m keeping myself occupied with these cookies. Because if we’re really being honest, nothing beats an amazing cookie. Especially stuffed with caramel, chocolate chunks, pretzel pieces and peanut butter chips.

You know you want one. [Read more…]
