Homemade Twix Bars
Intro If you don’t want gaggles of children beating down your door on Halloween night then look no further. If you’d rather not be the most popular house on the block then continue on your Internet search. If you aren’t a fan of a cookie crust so tender it shatters in your mouth, or a creamy caramel – dark, intense and scattered with salt, or bittersweet chocolate blended with butter to create the perfect cap to this cookie, then you might need to get checked because I think something is very wrong. If you like the idea of all these things then you are in the right spot and you are here just in time as this is the perfect cookie for this candy-laden season. While I don’t recommend passing these treats out to your trick-or-treaters as homemade treats aren’t super popular these days, save these for special guests or Halloween parties. If you’ve been to Spago for lunch then perhaps you’ve had this dessert fancied up with a fleck of edible gold on the chocolate layer. Homemade Twix Bars

Homemade Butterfingers I don't eat a lot of candy, but I l♥ve Butterfingers. When I saw this recipe on the Taste of Home forums, I knew I had to give it a try. Everyone on the board said it tasted just like a real Butterfinger. The best part - this recipe only has three ingredients! How can you make a Butterfinger with only three ingredients?? Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken I owe my mom for finding this recipe for me! I have been so busy back and forth from the hospital that she has been such a help in having dinner ready for me when I go home to feed my baby. She made this for dinner, and I kid you not, every single person in my family LOVED it! And I mean everyone… My mom, dad, my brother, my two sisters, my brother in law, AND my picky 2 year old! My husband probably would have loved it too had he not been on a diet restriction at the time! This meal is SO easy to throw together (aren’t all crock pot meals?!)

Your Vegan Mom You guys, the broccoli we talked about? It's not ready yet. It cooks a long time.* Giant Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies We really can’t leave well enough alone now can we? Remember those Whopper brownies from just a few weeks ago? Who do we think we are? Taking a perfectly delicious brownie and insisting on adding malt balls?! And the blondie snack cake?

77 Healthy Crock-Pot Recipes Crazy schedules, long work hours, and tempting takeout menus make it tough to even think about cooking most nights during the week. Despite the inconvenience, firing up the stove or oven is almost always cheaper and healthier than ordering in or eating out. How about a compromise? Making dinner with a slow cooker — Crock-Pot is the go-to brand in the U.S. — is an easy way to get in all those vitamins and minerals without slaving over a hot stove for hours at a time. Homemade Mounds Bar I made these the day before Halloween, which made them perfect for gobbling up the next day. Honestly, these aren’t too sweet, which is exactly what I like about them. I don’t love a candy that’s pure sugar because it’s so unsatisfying and I’m bouncing up a wall for the next hour; instead, these get their flavor from rich dark chocolate and nutty coconut.

Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Chinese Buffet at Home It is no secret that I have an obsession with Chinese cuisine. The place that started it all was a local Chinese buffet here in Michigan. After frequent visits to the buffet over the years, I finally decided to take a stab at cooking my own Chinese dishes at home. The majority of the dishes were delicious and I began cooking different Chinese meals every week, but I had always wanted more variety just like the buffet. I had always wondered, “what if I could create a Chinese buffet at home?”
