Brownies/blondies. Chubby Hubby Bars. I am not a huge ice cream fan.

Chubby Hubby Bars

Don’t feel bad for me, I certainly get my sweets in a multitude of other ways. But, one day last week while doing my weekly grocery shopping, I got seduced by the colorful pints of Ben & Jerry’s down the frozen food aisle. I generally try and avoid the ice cream section altogether…but this day I was feeling weak. I stood and stared at the pints full of delicious concoctions…I am less intrigued by the ice cream itself, as I am by the add-in combinations. Honestly, ice cream is just a vehicle for my cookie dough or Schweddy Ball consumption…I could take it or leave it ~ and normally I leave it. While hypnotized by the shelves of delicious ice cream flavors my eyes stopped on “Chubby Hubby“. S'mores Bars. Growing up we had a family reunion up in the Graham Mountains in Arizona every summer with my dad’s side of the family.

I have 82 first cousins on my dad’s side alone so we were never bored and definitely made our fair share of mischief around camp. The best part for me about the reunion is when the whole family would make the hike up to Ladybug Tower. As you get closer to the tower you start seeing ladybugs here and there. We even would have ladybug fights where we would grab handfuls of ladybugs and throw them at each other (in retrospect…yuck). When we finally reached the tower there were ladybugs everywhere in sight…on all of the surrounding rocks and all over the Ladybug Tower. Ahh…memories. Sometimes when I’m putting my kids to bed at night I tell my boys about the Ladybug Tower and their eyes get all big with excitement.

Tomorrow, we are headed to the Grahams and to Ladybug Tower. Ingredients Instructions Preheat oven to 350°F. Notes. Apple Toffee Blondies. These Apple Blondies are JAM PACKED with sweetness!

An all-time favorite! My morning went a little something like this… I woke up mad because I had a dream that I was married to Prince William and he left me for a woman who could tie a cherry stem with her tongue. Of course that made me angry at my REAL husband for being a man. “YOU ARE ALL PERVERTS!” He had no idea what was going on, but just shrugged in agreement. I made a cup of coffee and clicked on the morning news, only to discover that the White House crasher wife, Michaele Salahi left her husband for a guitarist from the band Journey. Next I saw that Toddlers and Tiaras is still a show. Then my 8 year old gave me a one-arm hug as he ran to catch the bus. Finally I saw that the Kardashians have started a clothing line. Anyway, it’s been a weird morning so far… Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars. Cookie Dough + Cheesecake = all my dreams coming TRUE!

These were seriously good, friends. I know I say that quite a bit here, but really...really, these were tasty. Forget all the other things I've posted and suggested that you make, and get on these immediately. Immediately! The cookie dough part was my personal favorite.

This fudge is ingredient and time-intensive, but the final result is delicious and extremely impressive. This recipe yields a large amount of fudge, so if you only need a few dozen pieces, consider cutting it in half and preparing it in an 8x8 pan. Ingredients: 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips1/3 cup butterscotch or peanut butter chips2/3 cup peanut butter, divided use1/2 stick (2 oz) butter1 cup granulated sugar1/4 cup evaporated milk1.5 cups marshmallow cream or fluff1 tsp vanilla extract1.5 cups chopped salted peanuts1 package (14 oz) caramels Preparation: Freshly Baked Stories, Recipes and Photos: Blonde Rocky Road.

Before we go any further here, I should warn you about Blonde Rocky Road. Blonde Rocky Road is going to be one of the most addictively delicious things you put in your face all year. It is also a Real Problem. Blonde Rocky Road is so quick and simple to assemble, you can even throw it together after a highly celebratory Ladies’ Night out, more than a little tipsy, before you’ve even removed your high heels. Just try not to pull down the baking pans in a crash at 12:30 in the morning. Or whatever. Blonde Rocky Road comes together so fast that you’ll be three pieces deep before you even realize that you made it in the first place. Blonde Rocky Road takes no prisoners. Butterscotch chips, peanut butter, butter, salted peanuts, marshmallows. And! Now, before you come after me because you’re waking in the night to eat this stuff, let me tell you where the inspiration came from.

The second go around I added salted peanuts for crunch and more marshmallows. Makes 25 pieces.
