A few weeks ago, I went to a barbeque. On the table there was plate of what looked to be a chocolate type dish that was crumbled up. I grabbed a piece, ate it, had eight more pieces, and then went on a mad hunt throughout the barbeque to see who brought the stuff and how much I would have to pay them for the recipe. After not too much work I tracked it down, and trust me. You want to make this. What’s fantastic about this stuff is many things. Directions 1) Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. 2) Then layer in crackers. 3) Melt the butter in a saucepan and then stir in the brown sugar. 4) Once it has simmered for a few minutes, pour it straight on the crackers. 5) Next, stick your baking sheet in the oven at 325 degrees for 5-10 minutes. 6) When you take it out of the oven, pour the chocolate chips on the tray right away. 7) Meanwhile, crumble up some heath bars. 8) After 5 minutes, use a spatula to spread out the chocolate and make the chips flat. 11) Then just bust the stuff up! Ok. Um.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars There is a deli near my house that makes the most amazing chocolate peanut butter bars. I have been trying to come up with a copycat version of them for some time & this recipe is pretty much it. I thought they would be a great dessert to make for the bake sale, as chocolate/peanut butter desserts are very popular & these are super simple & don't require any baking! how to transfer a photo to fabric Did you know you can transfer photos to fabric without using iron-on sheets? I love this technique. It's simple to execute and the end results are really pretty. It's another method for hand printing! I made some fabrics the other day and used them to add pockets to one of my wool skirts.

Homemade Raw Chocolate - Edible Harmony If we were to make a Top 10 list of worldwide favorite foods, I’m convinced raw chocolate would definitely be in the running for the title. To anyone with a sweet tooth, raw chocolate can be anything from a sugar craving “extinguisher”, to a cheap, safe alternative to…ok, let’s not get carried away here.

In any case, the health benefits of this delicacy cannot be overlooked, and we should lose the guilt when indulging in one of mankind’s greatest creations. Ingredients: ½ cup of raw cacao butter* 2 tbsp of coconut oil ¼ cup + 1 tbsp of raw cacao powder** Sweetener to taste ( I used 2 tbsp of raw honey)

Cake Batter Chocolate Bark I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to share a recipe with you. Or to lick a bowl. The secret ingredient here? King Arthur Flour - King Arthur Flour – Baking Banter Have you ever baked something that made you do the Daffy Duck? You know, the cartoon scene where Daffy runs about yelling, “I’m rich, I’m rich, whoop, whoop, yippee, I’m rich!” He’s bouncing around on his head, feet, hands, and rump in a spastic outpouring of sheer joy. Yep, the Daffy Duck. Not everything we bake here in the kitchen gets us to do the Daffy Duck.

DIY: Homemade York Peppermint Patties Recipe Halloween is just a couple of days away, but you won’t find any spooky decorations at my house. I’m pretty much the scrooge of Halloween… I think I stopped trick or treating before I was out of grade school, and only dressed up once (in college, and it was a tie-dye t-shirt – I made myself a hippie) since then… I hate scary movies… spiders, skulls and eye balls gross me out. However, I do find that Halloween has one redeeming quality – the candy, of course!
