Chocolate Dipped Microwave Caramels

 Homemade Caramels that only take 7 minutes to make from start to finish! You won’t believe how easy they are.

microwave-caramels Welcome to the first day of August. I can hardly believe I just typed those words. Let’s just say I’m glad we’re talking about the start of another summer month instead of a colder alternative.

So I’m going to be honest. Caramels aren’t the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of summer. Thermometer, lower temperatures (aka no humidity), and patience are some of the things I associate with caramel-making. Now don’t get me wrong, homemade caramels prepared the traditional way is one of my favorite things to do. I get excited every fall when the conditions are just right and we get to enjoy some caramelly goodness again.

Now there’s no more waiting for anything. You can prepare homemade caramels anytime of the year in about 7 minutes. Best discovery ever? Yes, yes it is. [Read more…]

Samoa Mug Cake

Samoa Mug Cake by Deliciously Yum!

So I finally jumped on the girl scout cookie train. I have certainly not missed the fact that the cutest little girls are out and about selling their well-loved cookies. Until two days ago, I had successfully avoided the purchase of said cookies. Not because I don’t support the girl scouts, but mainly because I know what serious damage we’ll inflict on those cookies once they enter our home.

With the temperatures climbing to a balmy 45 degrees on Monday, little girls were stationed at pretty much every grocery store entrance. There was no escaping, lol. Needless to say, I proceeded to purchase our favorite variety from one of our friends’ daughter. Most people are either on the Thin Mint or Samoa side. I even heard people say that you can’t be on both. That it’s impossible. I beg to differ. I refuse to choose between one or the other. But since I recently figured out how to make Homemade Thin Mints, I went for Samoas. And inspiration struck. I am this excited to share this recipe for Samoa Mug Cake with you today! [Read more…]
