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.

Single Serving Pie in a Jar These are individual-sized pies made in little glass jars that can go straight from your freezer to your oven to your mouth. SO cute. You can make these with store-bought crust and canned filling or jazz it up with homemade like we do. And just for added cuteness we teamed up with crafting expert Lolly for some personalized tags. These are just about the best little gift from the kitchen you could share with someone! Pie in Jar This is the type of jar you’ll need. They’re half-pint jars, but short and squatty instead of tall and skinny (Ya know, like me as opposed to my mother. Step 1: Pie Dough The first thing you’ll need is dough. Step 2: Make a topper and line the jar Roll out a small handful of dough. Use the rest of the dough to line the jars. Step 3: Fill ‘er up You’ll need about 1/2 C filling for each jar. Play around with it and come up with something yummy! When your filling is all combined, divide it between the jars and dot a pat of butter on top (about 1/4 T) Ready for this?

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! I cut them into 2" bars for the sale, but 1" bite-sized bars would be ideal, as they are very rich.They sold out faster then anything else at the sale...I wish I had made more. To begin, grease a standard sized brownie pan with non-stick cooking spray & line the pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang {for easy removal}. In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, add a 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar {packed}, 2 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar, a 1/2 cup of softened unsalted butter, & 1 3/4 cups of smooth peanut butter. Beat until smooth, then dump the mixture out into the pan,

2 Stews: Cheesecake In A Mug I was telling a friend about my 1-2-3 Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake and kept thinking there had to be equally easy and delicious alternatives. I had some cream cheese and sour cream in the refrigerator and played around with a microwave cheesecake. The first time I overcooked it, but the second time was a charm. It was creamy and delicate from the first bite. This cake is great for people at work, in dorms or if you just want cheesecake...fast! Instead of a crust, I added a crumb topping. Microwave Mug Cheesecake 2 ounces low fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature1/2 cup low fat sour cream1/4 teaspoon vanilla2 tablespoons sugar2 tablespoons egg white, slightly beaten (egg whites in a carton work fine)1/2 teaspoon lemon juice1/2 teaspoon cornstarch (prevents liquid from forming) For "mix ins", add 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips, or swirl in (not stir) 1 tablespoon jam of choice. or swirl in jam at this time. Microwave on medium for 2 1/2 minutes* (in a 650 watt microwave).

Vietnamese Coffee Jello I know half of you, dear readers, are thinking "Ewww!" And the other half are intrigued... I was intrigued when I read this recipe at The Food Librarian yesterday. I was so intrigued in fact that I had to run to Kroger to get some sweetened condensed milk so I could try this right away. I threw this Vietnamese Coffee-inspired Jello together in about 15 minutes yesterday evening, popped it in the fridge and eagerly waited for the gelatin to set. This Vietnamese Coffee Jello turned out pretty darn tasty, if you like coffee and gelatinous things. The Jello can be cut into the most perfect, smooth cubes and are sturdy enough to be picked up and eaten with your fingers. Vietnamese Coffee Jello via The Food Librarian 1/2 cup cold water 2 cups strong coffee 1 (14oz.) can sweetened condensed milk 3 packages of Knox unflavored gelatin Place 1/2 cup cold water in a medium bowl. Stir the hot coffee into the bloomed gelatin until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

I’m rich, I’m rich! Thousand Dollar Bars | 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. On a bad day, we do the wine taster (small taste and a spit) or the Emily Post (napkin over mouth, remove offending food, weak smile). But on a really really good day, we do the Happy Dance (personal taste rules here;mine includes foot stomping and mmm mmm noises); and the Daffy Duck. These Thousand Dollar Bars did just that for us here at KAF. These bars definitely remind people of Twix® bars, both in shape and taste, but OH, so much better when top-end caramel and chocolate is used. So, break out your happy dancin’ shoes, and let’s make Thousand Dollar Bars. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Prick the dough all over with a fork.

Coca-Cola Cupcakes I don’t drink coca-cola. But I do eat it. Weird. Yeah, I dunno. It’s way better eaten. There’s some dark and white sugar cooked with dark dutch processed cocoa powder…and a can of coke! There’s some the ol’ that pouring into this and this pouring into that. There’s some mixing. Take a little PAM and spray the liners–this is a sticky cupcake batter. UPDATED TIP ALERT: A few of you tried this recipe and sprayed them and the cupcake still stuck. These cupcakes are chocolately, decadent, rich and kind of amaze. This frosting isn’t frosting–it’s just whipped cream. And guess what? Next, cherries on top! P.S. Coca-Cola Cupcakes Recipe adapted from Baked: The New Frontier Yields 15 cupcakes Print this recipe! Cupcakes: 2 cups Coca-cola (do not use diet!) Whipped Cream Frosting: 1 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract Maraschino cherries (for topping) Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
