Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie

Now that I’ve put edith + ethel (my little cookie business) to rest, I’ve been in the mood to bake cookies just for myself.  I wanted a classic chocolate chip cookie, with a little oomph. I thought about pretzels or nuts, but a settled on a caramel stuffed chocolate chip cookie.  Mmmm caramel stuffed chocolate…

Caramel Brownies with Pretzel Crust

I feel like I need to have a t-shirt made saying “I survived the move!”  All 1,400 employees moved into our new building today.  It’s been very exciting and very busy.  I actually worked all weekend troubleshooting building issues with our core team to make sure everything would be as perfect as possible when everyone…

Caramel Bacon Crack

I originally made bacon crack about a year ago. It really was like crack. Once you started eating it, you couldn’t stop. While I was happy with the recipe, I wasn’t so crazy about the way the brown sugar stayed crunchy on top of the bacon without fully dissolving. I decided to try a new…

Pretzel Turtles with Bourbon Caramel

I made these originally last Christmas for the office and loved them. I wanted to make them again thisfor my parents who’ve never tried them, but do a little something different. I had a bottle of bourbon in my cupboard (this year’s new “it drink”) and decided to add a little to my caramels. Oh…

Brownie Caramel Ice Cream

  I have a friend that teases me because I keep the insert to my ice cream maker in the freezer at all times. I say it’s because you never know when you’ll be in the mood for ice cream and you want to be prepared! I’m glad that it’s always there because the other…

Snickers Squares

Bless this mess.  That should be the name of this recipe.  I spent the weekend cleaning out the fridge and freezer and came across a container of nougat and caramel that I used a couple of weeks ago for my Payday cake and thought I’d try to make a homemade snickers squares with it. Have…

Caramel Chocolate Chip Bars

Last weekend, I was really in the mood for something comforting. I was craving chocolate chip cookies, but I wanted them to be thick and chewy all the way through. I haven’t made Toll House (like)  bars in a very long time, so I thought I’d make that and put some left over caramel (from…

Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers with Caramel & Coconut

The day I made the pretzel turtles, I still had about half a pan of caramel left over and set it aside to cut later. The next day, someone at work was given a box of Camper Grahams. They were a cookie-meets-confection treat from Williams Sonoma and they were awesome! It was a graham cracker…

Pretzel Turtles

A friend of mine in the office gave me these as a present for Christmas. They were delicious. She asked me how I felt about them honestly and I replied, “They’re delicious, but they were a little hard to chew.” She agreed and we brainstormed on how to prevent that from happening. We thought that…

Chocolate-Caramel Cake

This recipe had me at the picture. The frosting looked so glossy and soft. Then I read the list of ingredients. Mayo? Salt? Olive oil? Caramel and chocolate? I’m so there. I’ve always wanted to try a mayo chocolate cake so here was my chance. I have to apologize for the pictures on this post….

Chocolate-Caramel Cake with Sea Salt

This recipe had me at the picture. The frosting looked so glossy and soft. Then I read the list of ingredients. Mayo? Salt? Olive oil? Caramel and chocolate? I’m so there. I’ve always wanted to try a mayo chocolate cake so here was my chance. I have to apologize for the pictures on this post….

Cashew Blondie with Caramel

Disclaimer: This was an experiment and a work in progress. About a month ago, I made blondies with peanut, pretzel and caramel. It was pretty good and reminded me of a payday, but it only made me really want to try to make a payday “type” bar (not a candy bar, but blondie bar). I…
