How to Make Homemade Candy Bars (Resolution Breaker) If you’re like most people, you probably started off the year with a whole list of resolutions: more sleep! Less coffee! More exercise! Less television! I call them “Resolution Breaker Candy Bars,” and if you’re absolutely wedded to your healthy eating habits, stop reading now before it’s too late… Still here?

{No-Bake} Oreo Cheesecake Based on my rave reviews for the no-bake Lemon Cheesecake, you probably know by now that we enjoy cheesecake in my house. I love a good, classic, baked cheesecake, but my husband is much more partial to the no-baked variety. He loved this spider web version, loved the lemon version and he wants me to announce publicly that he really, really loved this Oreo version. This cheesecake is creamy, rich, and brimming with large delectable pieces of Oreo cookies. Although this recipe has multiple steps, they can all be made in advance and the end result will have you wishing this cheesecake could pop out of your fridge every day of the week.

Oreo Fudge Bars Well, first of all, I’m having a fantastic time in New York, even if it is our third time here in three years. We were in the city for one night, then Brooklyn for 2 nights, and now we’re visiting some of Kramer’s family in Westchester. I should also mention that Kramer and I got engaged on January 2nd while in Central Park! We won’t be getting married until after I graduate from school (December 2009), but we’re going to enjoy our engagement for now and that’s plenty of excitement for me. Anyway, these bars are out of this world. You don’t need much. Crush your Oreos in a food processor (ideally) or by hand with a rolling pin or some other bludgeoning object (what I did). Mix the melted butter in with the crushed cookies, press into your prepared pan, and set aside. Melt together the chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips, vanilla, and condensed milk. Pour the mixture over the cookie base and spread until even. And press that on top of the chocolate mixture. Oreo Fudge Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Oh. My. God. If you could take perfection, roll it in a ball, and dip it chocolate, this would be it. I’m not joking here folks. I’d strongly advise you to put down the mouse and get your butt to the kitchen, stat. My apologies to the New Years’ resolution folk. The cookie dough itself is egg-free, and potentially dairy free AND vegan if you get picky about what you coat them with. Take it or leave it (but I strongly suggest you take it. Update: Since it was first posted in 2010, I’ve updated this recipe and included it in my new cookbook, The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook (Quirk Books, 2012). You may also like...
