King Arthur Flour - King Arthur Flour – Baking Banter. Have you ever baked something that made you do the Daffy Duck?

King Arthur Flour - King Arthur Flour – Baking Banter

You know, the cartoon scene where Daffy runs about yelling, “I’m rich, I’m rich, whoop, whoop, yippee, I’m rich!” He’s bouncing around on his head, feet, hands, and rump in a spastic outpouring of sheer joy. Yep, the Daffy Duck. Not everything we bake here in the kitchen gets us to do the Daffy Duck. Sometimes we do the swoon, the table grip (hold me Ralphie, I’ve died and gone to heaven). On a bad day, we do the wine taster (small taste and a spit) or the Emily Post (napkin over mouth, remove offending food, weak smile). But on a really really good day, we do the Happy Dance (personal taste rules here;mine includes foot stomping and mmm mmm noises); and the Daffy Duck. These Thousand Dollar Bars did just that for us here at KAF. These bars definitely remind people of Twix® bars, both in shape and taste, but OH, so much better when top-end caramel and chocolate is used. Preheat the oven to 300°F.

Brickle. A few weeks ago, I went to a barbeque.

Brickle

On the table there was plate of what looked to be a chocolate type dish that was crumbled up. I grabbed a piece, ate it, had eight more pieces, and then went on a mad hunt throughout the barbeque to see who brought the stuff and how much I would have to pay them for the recipe. After not too much work I tracked it down, and trust me. You want to make this. What’s fantastic about this stuff is many things. Directions 1) Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. 2) Then layer in crackers. 3) Melt the butter in a saucepan and then stir in the brown sugar. 4) Once it has simmered for a few minutes, pour it straight on the crackers. 5) Next, stick your baking sheet in the oven at 325 degrees for 5-10 minutes. 6) When you take it out of the oven, pour the chocolate chips on the tray right away. 7) Meanwhile, crumble up some heath bars. 8) After 5 minutes, use a spatula to spread out the chocolate and make the chips flat. 11) Then just bust the stuff up!

Ok. Warm Toasted Marshmallow S'more Bars. Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars. There is a deli near my house that makes the most amazing chocolate peanut butter bars. I have been trying to come up with a copycat version of them for some time & this recipe is pretty much it. I thought they would be a great dessert to make for the bake sale, as chocolate/peanut butter desserts are very popular & these are super simple & don't require any baking! I cut them into 2" bars for the sale, but 1" bite-sized bars would be ideal, as they are very rich. They sold out faster then anything else at the sale...I wish I had made more. To begin, grease a standard sized brownie pan with non-stick cooking spray & line the pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang {for easy removal}. 2 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar, a 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter, & 1 3/4 cups of smooth peanut butter.

Beat until smooth, then dump the mixture out into the pan, and press down into the bottom, making it as level as possible. 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter, Stir occasionally to combine. Homemade Kit Kat Candy Bar Recipe. Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the milk.

Add the sugars and bring to a boil. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Easy, right? But trust me, this order of events is important. Were you to, say, dump all the ingredients into a pan and just cook away, you might have to throw the whole sloppy, sticky mess into the trash.
