The following recipe is written by Jaime of Sophistimom. Welcome, Jaime! Last year, while developing a recipe for homemade Ho-Ho’s, I accidentally made something more like a thin brownie than a cake. When Katie invited me to write this post for today, it was still cold and rainy here in the Rocky Mountains. So I turned to my food magazines for a little help, as I often do.

And that became my starting point. Martha’s ice cream bar had only one cookie layer, so I wanted to make it a little different—more like an ice cream sandwich.

About the Author: Homemade Vanilla Bean Agave Marshmallows. What can be better than warming up to a hot cup of cocoa on a chilly night topped with homemade marshmallows cut out in the shape of a snowflake! Making homemade marshmallows from scratch with agave has been on my list of things to try for a very long time. I modified the Barefoot Contessa's recipe and replaced the corn syrup with agave and added some fresh vanilla bean and I just loved how these turned out! What a fun project, not very difficult to make as long as you have the right tools; a candy thermometer and a stand mixer are a must. These are perfect to add to your hot cocoa, to make awesome homemade smores, and even turn into a really pretty hand-made gifts for the holidays!

I really loved this project! So did my older daughter who is a chocoholic and had an excellent excuse to make herself hot chocolate.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge. Yes, really. If that doesn't stop you dead in your tracks, then I don't think you're human. This is serious stuff. I have a family recipe that I use for standard fudge, but I like making fun and unique variations as well - peanut butter, pumpkin pie, and white chocolate have all been well-received in the past. But I'm pretty sure this one surpasses them all. This comes together pretty easily, and honestly the hardest part is waiting for it to set up! The fudge was smooth and creamy, with the perfect cookie dough flavor.

These caramel apple cheesecake bars made their way around the food blogging sphere not to long ago and they certainly caught my attention! Even just by reading the title, they sound amazing but that is just the start! If you dig a little deeper you will see that they start with a base of butter shortbread which is topped with the cheesecake followed by the apples and then a layer of rolled oat crumbs only finally be topped with the caramel sauce. These bars are like combining shortbread, cheesecake, apple crisp and caramel sauce all into one truly spectacular treat! Given all of the components, these bars require a bit of effort to make but overall everything is pretty straight forward and it so worth it! You do have to pull the cream cheese and butter out of the fridge ahead of time to come to room temperature so keep that in mind when making these bars.

This recipe calls for lining the baking dish with aluminum foil which I had never done before and it turned out great! Ingredients.

As I’ve said before, probably the question I get asked most frequently is “How are you not 500 pounds with everything that make on your blog?” I love food. I’ve always loved food.
