Twix Caramel Brownies Twix Caramel Brownies Last week we hosted a barbeque for our good family friends. I couldn’t decide what dessert to make, so I made three:) I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone to enjoy, plus, you all know I love an excuse to bake:) I decided to make brownies, because brownies are always a hit at parties. Josh and I both love Twix candy bars. I stirred the Twix candy bar chunks into the rich, chocolaty brownie batter. I poured the batter into the pan and drizzled caramel ice cream topping evenly over the brownies. After I impatiently let the brownies cool, I cut them into squares and placed them on a platter for the barbeque. If you are looking for a simple and fun way to jazz up the traditional brownie, try this Twix Caramel Brownie recipe. If you like these Twix Caramel Brownies, you might also like:

Calzone! Uh-oh…this calzone shouldn’t be a calzone. Nope. It totally should be a picture of a pizza…topped with layers of ricotta, melted mozzarella, cubes of roasted butternut squash and broccoli rabe. That was the plan. This pizza was supposed to convince me that broccoli rabe isn’t this gross, bitter leaf situation…well that failed. I was gonna post it anyway, thinking some of you lunatics actually might like it…but I dunno…looking at the pictures of the pizza bummed me out, so I decided to turn the leftover ingredients (from the pizza) into something more awesome!! Meet this calzone… Have you ever noticed that Taco Bell works with, like, 10 ingredients. And then they just re-invent different burrito crunches, XXL chalupas, etc. with those same ingredients–it’s pretty genius. Their chefs kinda remind me of those people that you can hire to come over and look in your closet and pair your already existing clothes together, creating brand-new outfits. Calzones remind me of those taco bell inventions.
supernatural brownies « one cake two cake November 7, 2010 § It seems like every baker has that one perfect recipe for chocolate chip cookies, that they’re so confident in that they need never try another. I’m not generally capable of doing that, since I have a neurotic need to test a bazillion recipes – what if the next one is better? This recipe hits all my brownie requirements: dense and fudgy, but not because the batter is underbaked and gooey. So here are my favourite brownies: not compared against all other possible recipes, because once I found them, I made them exactly again and again. Supernatural Brownies – adapted from Chocolate: From Simple Cookies to Extravagant Showstoppers 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter, plus more for buttering pan 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (I use around 65-70%) 4 eggs 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup dark brown sugar, such as muscovado 1 cup granulated sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 cup flour Butter a 13-by-9-inch baking pan and line with buttered parchment paper or foil.

Raspberry White Chocolate Scones As adventurous as I've tried to become in the kitchen, I've only very recently made scones for the first time. It was an extra-special occasion, a brunchy baby shower for my friend Shelby (she gave birth to her beautiful little guy last week...yay!). I'm not going to lie, these scones were a little high maintenance. I think I used every bowl and utensil in my kitchen, and every square foot of our house was dusted in flour by the time I was done. But offsetting the effort was the fact that these were the most delicious scones I've ever had. I hate to waste calories on rock-hard, dry excuses for scones, and these were the complete opposite. Raspberry White Chocolate SconesAdapted from Picky CookMakes 8 sconesPrintable Recipe 16 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 sticks), frozen whole (you'll only wind up using 10 tbsp, but need all 16 for this to work. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Chocolate Malted & Toasted-Marshmallow Layer Cake - Semisweetie, A geeky baking and recipe blog Recipe: Sweetapolita's Campfire Delight Total time: 4 hours Ease: Intermediate Unusual ingredients: malted milk powder, whipping cream, marshmallows, marshmallow fluff, unsweetened cocoa powder, coffee Marshmallows. Malt. I knew this was going to be a time investment. The cakes themselves were perfect. Toasting the marshmallows was easy in the oven, but when I added them to the mixture of fluff, butter and icing sugar, things got quite a bit messy! The chocolate malted frosting is absolutely delightful. Related Posts:

There’s nothing better than the perfect dense, fudgy brownie, just like not much can beat a classic piece of creamy cheesecake. Yet with both of these desserts we’re always fiddling around with different versions, swirling things in and layering things on the top and the bottom (incidentally, peanut butter goes well with both!). It’s an endless merry go round of dessert experimentation, where there really can never be a bad result. When I first saw these over on RecipeGirl I stopped in my tracks. You know how milk and cookies go well together? Back to the merry-go-round to do more kitchen experiments!

Rainbow Cake in a Jar I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight. In this simple recipe, a basic white cake is turned into a slew of bright colors, baked to perfection, then topped with a creamy white frosting. Cakes baked in jars can be topped with traditional metal canning lids and stored in the fridge for up to five days.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Gouda Cheese Sauce This morning I was looking at my home page and I realized that there is a lot of orange sweet potato and pumpkin going on. Considering the time of year I think it is very fitting. Maybe I should go red and green when Christmas comes around? Got any green and red recipes that I can try out for Christmas? In keeping with the autumn orange theme I got the idea to try a sweet potato gnocchi covered in gouda cheese sauce. The idea was to do it in a stovetop mac and cheese kind of style. I have never made a potato gnocchi before. First and most important you need 1 pound of sweet potato. In the photos I as preparing a double recipe so that is why you see so many potatoes. Pierce the potatoes with a fork. Microwave the potato for 5-6 minutes on each side, until tender. Slice the potatoes in half and let cool. Scoop out the flesh of the potatoes and mash, you need 1 1/2 cups of mashed potato. Add Parmesan cheese, brown sugar, 1 teaspoons salt, and nutmeg; mash to blend. You have made a roux! Gnocchi
