Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars

Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars
After last weekend, I had a ton of Oreos to use up. I should mentioned that this was after I baked a second batch of those Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Oops. I might have bought two packages. Oops again. This may come as a surprise: I don’t really like to eat just plain Oreos. I’ve already made cupcakes and brownies, but I couldn’t get a crunchy cookies and cream bar out of my mind. It’s like the better-than-crack brownies and a bag of Oreos had a love child. With Mr. The pictures say it all – these brownies are rich and chocolaty. If you are one of those crazy people who doesn’t love sugary sweet, so-good-your-teeth-hurt desserts, then these probably aren’t for you.

Better-Than-Crack-Brownies I’m sorry for doing this to you. I really am. But see, last Friday while I was on a 10-hour road trip heading for vacation, I received this recipe from a reader named Liz. Liz, I love you. That’s all I have to say. I was tortured by this recipe for a full 8 days before I could make it. So it was the first thing I made when I returned home. These are an absolute sin. I really don’t have any words, other than you must try them. They may also change your waistline too. But that’s okay. It’s all in the name of chocolate. Better-Than-Crack Brownies 1 batch brownies (boxed mix or oooey gooey brownies) 1/2 cup salted peanuts (if don’t have salted, add sea salt) 1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips 1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter 1/2 tablespoon butter 1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal Mix brownies according to directions, and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 9 x 13 baking dish. While they are finishing baking, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Mr.

Creme De Menthe Brownie Recipe Please tell me you’ve had these before. Okay… these exact ones are not really from 1988. At least I don’t think so. This brownie comes straight from a yellowed index card out of my mom’s seemingly unorganized recipe box. Over Labor Day weekend, these brownies came up amongst conversation and my eyes lit up. I need a life. They are probably the sole reason I even considered mint chocolate chip donuts. So I ran out and bought some creme de menthe, which was finally found at the third liquor store I ventured into after the first two associates, both creeping up on their 70s, stared blankly at me and yelled “Are ya sure ya don’t mean cream da mint?” Yeah buddy. You can find clear creme de menthe but what’s the fun in that? [P.S. don't you like how neatly (?) Another giant clue that these were the happening dessert at the end of last millennium, amidst Gushers, Pop Rocks and various layered frozen ice cream “casseroles?” Creme De Menthe Brownies [brownie adapted from my red velvet brownies]

wonderful acts of humanity Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies My pants are tight. Snug as a bug in a rug, people. And do my friends bring me carrot sticks or offer to run with me? Oh no. Instead, they call my attention to cookie recipes involving Oreos stuffed inside two chocolate chip cookies. I’m not one to place blame or name drop *cough* Rachel *cough*, since many of my friends do this. My advice to you – make these.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups Soooooo… you know that episode of Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap on top of chocolate cake just so she will stop eating it?? Uh. Yeeeeeah. These are like… of that caliber. And that totally almost happened to me. I ate what felt like a million, then had a plate of 5-day old green bean fries from the fridge and called it lunch. I definitely recommend those. For lunch. Face? Inhale.

Molasses and Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. My Best Yet! Really…I’m not on a tangent about BESTS all of a sudden, it just happens that after a discussion on how I best like to make mashed potatoes that I wanted to post these cookies. I have tried so many recipes that people proclaim as the best. Whether they really think they are or are simply trying to get some Google juice from claiming they are, I had just never had a chocolate chip cookie that was unique enough to garner that praise. I mean I’ve really tried and I’ve had some really good versions in the effort. What makes these so different then? I also love molasses in cookies…it adds such a warm note. These cookies are a mutt for sure with lineage from a recipe by Joy the Baker that was inspired by Alton Brown who suggested using bread flour for cookies. For all of the modifications I have to take to get the kind of results I crave, the one thing I’ve found that helps both the texture, the rise and the taste?

Recipe: The Easiest, Healthiest, Most Scrumptious Fudge Ever The temperature has inspired me to post some cold-weather recipes. This fudge recipe fits the bill nicely. 7 reasons I love this fudge 1. It tastes divine 2. It uses all nourishing ingredients 3. This recipe is based on one of Sally Fallon's recipes (she has some brilliant recipe ideas in Nourishing Traditions, by the way). I have adapted it to use coconut oil, cocoa powder, and the low glycemic, oh-so-yummy coconut/palm sugar (though honey works great too!). This truly is one of the easiest recipes to make, and it truly is richly delicious. The Easiest, Healthiest, Most Scrumptious Fudge Ever By the way, you can easily substitute with this recipe. Ingredients 1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil1/2 cup of coconut/palm sugar (the paste-like kind)1/2 cup of cocoa powderA dash of sea salt1/2 teaspoon vanilla Directions In a heat-resistant (Pyrex) glass measuring cup, add the coconut oil.
