See, a Carmelita is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill treat. When I got my kitchen store newsletter in January, I started planning out my strategy. The email naming the winner took a few extra weeks to be sent--no lie--and I was on pins and needles the whole time. Epilogue: If I sound just a wee bit crazy, get a load of this! CarmelitasAll of the crazy obsessiveness boils down to this: Carmelitas are to-die-for. 32 caramel squares, unwrapped 1/2 cup heavy cream 3/4 cup butter, melted 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup flour 1 cup rolled oats 1 teaspoon baking soda 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips Combine caramels and cream in a small saucepan over low heat.

The Burlap Bag - High Quality Handmade Goods Shop - Austin Texas Yes. For real. Two ingredients. (Yes, you can add other things if you want… but you don’t HAVE to!) I made this up after seeing a “healthy breakfast cookie” that wanted me to add eggs, applesauce, baking soda, etc and I said NO! And also, I hate those “two/three ingredient” recipes where one of the ingredients is a boxed cookie mix. and the other is a can of pie filling. Ingredients: 2 large old bananas1 cup of oats (quick or regular! Mix those two together. Then add in what sounds yummy to you! Since all bananas are different sizes, the needed measurements can vary. We made 16 cookies with those measurements. pre-mixing. post-mixing. pre-cooking. post-cooking. check out those walnut chunks! These cookies taste most amazing right out of the oven.

Random Vegan Recipes Bring 6 quarts of salted water to a boil in an 8-quart pot over high heat. Pour the tomatoes and their liquid into the work bowl of a food processor. Using quick on/off pulses, process the tomatoes just until they are finely chopped. (Longer processing will aerate the tomatoes, turning them pink.) Stir the penne into the boiling water. Bring the water back to a boil, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Just before the pasta is done, fish the garlic cloves out of the sauce and pour in the cream. Remove the pot from the heat, sprinkle 3/4 cup of the soy parm over the pasta, and toss to mix. Back to top Homemade Snickers Bars | How Sweet It Is - StumbleUpon Insanity. That’s what this is. Pure In.San.It.TEEEEE. You know those days when you’re in desperate need of sugar and you’ve already downed more gummy vitamins than recommended while seriously considering how many more you can ingest without causing severe harm to your internal organs? Well… in that case you should make some homemade snickers bars. And I KNOW you know what I’m talking about. I spent the majority of my pre-pubescent and adolescent years scheming just how I would be able to steal my brothers’ Halloween candy. Then I went through a SERIOUS phase of those Snickers ice cream bars. And that you can eat a million of them. These days, it’s rare that I crave actual candy, often preferring some chewy cookies or super rich cheesecake or a bar of amazing chocolate that costs thrice as much as the recent organic meyer lemons I purchased. They are the peanut butter to my jelly. The salt to my pepper. The broccoli to my… wait, no. But now Nikki is like my bestest friend ever. nougat layer

How to Make Easy 3-Ingredient Energy Bars at Home Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn Previous image Next image Power bars! Make them at home with only three ingredients and a food processor. Prepare for your minds to be blown. I am a huge fan of chewy, nutty, fruit-filled energy bars of the sort made by Lärabar.

My favorite is still cherries, almonds, and dates (which are pictured here), but you can swap out the cherries and almonds for any dried fruit or nut. You can also play around with adding other ingredients into the mix: a few tablespoons of chia seeds, a handful of coconut, even some chocolate chips. Making energy bars really is that simple.

TENDER CRUMB: My FAVORITE Chocolate Chip Cookie - StumbleUpon I have experimented with countless recipes searching for that perfect chocolate chip cookie. The characteristics of the perfect cookie are a very personal matter, and here are my preferences: texture: chewy w. medium thickness --- everyone has their preference, and this is mine! chocolate to cookie ratio: 50/50 --- I really enjoy having a lot of chocolate in every bite chips vs. chunks: chunks --- I like sizeable pieces of chocolate in my cookie. type of chocolate: bittersweet --- I like using Valrhona 61% extra bitter nuts or other add-ins: NONE!! With the above criteria in mind, this recipe is the closest I've come to experiencing CCC perfection. - Don't substitute the pastry and bread flours w. - Hand chopped chocolate chunks, NOT premade chips - I will purchase a hunk of the best bittersweet chocolate that I can afford and hand cut them into chunks. - Chill the cookie dough at least 24 hours (I let my dough sit anywhere from 2-3 days) before baking.

Deluxe Stuffed Rice Krispies Treats The hardest part of this recipe is just figuring out what to call it! Deluxe Rice Krispy Treats? Gourmet Rice Krispies Treats? Stuffed Rice Crispy Treats? I love Amy Miller‘s suggestion of lasagna for sugar addicts. No matter what you want to call them, hot damn are these good. One disclaimer – you could certainly use homemade rice krispies treats. For each treat, I used two rice krispies treats. I use smush as a technical term often. Because my marshmallow was SO giant, I had to cut off the extra that oozed out the edges. Next, coat one of your krispy treats with your melted chocolate. Put your graham cracker marshmallow sandwich on the chocolate coated krispy treat, add some chocolate to the top of the graham crackers, and to the other rice krispy treat, then sandwich them together. And now you have this deliciousness. That’s what I’m talking about. I used Kraft Caramel Bits. Cover one of your krispy treat with the melting chocolate, pretzels and mini chocolate chips.
