Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Christmas Crack

December 8, 2010 Leave a comment

Okay so I totally renamed these, but they are a lot like the Christmas Crack I made last year but this one has layers and peanut butter chips!  Plus I really like asking people if they want some crack, try it you will like it too! lol

The original recipe is here http://picky-palate.com/2010/10/18/chocolate-peanut-butter-and-caramel-club-bars/

If you are looking for something easy to make, salt and sweet and really good you have to try these!  The original recipe was made for an 8×8 pan but the night I wanted to make these Mike was in bed and I couldn’t find my 8×8 (he put it somewhere) so I altered the recipe so I could make a 13×9 pan.  Which really once you try these you will be glad you made a 13×9 pan size!  Also, I think mine have more caramel in them than the original recipe… but what could be bad about that?

Now comes the chips!

Yum…. caramel!

Chocolate Dessert

I will apologize first as I meant to take a lot more pictures of this dessert and I was hoping to have a nice big piece to take a picture of in the end.  But I made this for Connor’s (my 3rd grader) class at school, which is also why the pieces are cut a lot smaller than I normally make them.  Connor’s class had a tasting party for recipes that mean something special to their family.  This one has been passed down and made since my Great Grandma.

Personally I like it made with butterscotch pudding but I know chocolate is more of a hit with kids.  I also know people who have made it with vanilla pudding, but I am not a fan of that.

This was one of the first desserts I ever made and it turned out horrible!  Why?  Because I didn’t read the box of pudding and bought the kind you have to cook not the instant one… oops!  Now I am really really careful about that.

Giant S’mores Cookies

September 10, 2010 4 comments

Today was food day at work and I wanted to make something wonderful.  I have kind of slacked the last few food days and picked something up at the store… plus I knew I needed something sweet for here.  So I was checking out my blogs (see listed on the right) and found a few things I wanted to try, then I found a couple NEW blogs!  I was cruising around and saw a picture of these cookies and decided right then and there I had to make them!

Well let me tell you, it caused an uproar at work.  I made a double batch so Mike and I could both take some to work and they went over well at both places.  But at my workplace?  I think people were ready to fight for a cookie!  I can’t even explain the chaos it caused!  So if you really want to impress someone make up a batch of these!

Zucchini bread

So if you are like me you don’t make many breads unless it’s banana bread because hey those soft bananas are calling to be baked!  So when one of the gals at work gave me 2 GIANT zucchini I decided to make bread.  I looked online for recipes and found a lot, but I didn’t feel like any of them were right.  So I did what I always do when I can’t find a recipe I want to use, I call mom.

She had already told me she had a really good recipe, so I gave her a call.  She dug out her 100 year old recipe (as she says) and gave it to me over the phone. Now let’s address these giant zucchini, I got 6 cups of shredded zucchini out of one.  So I realized fast I had more than I needed for one batch.  So I made enough for the neighbors, don’t you wish I was your neighbor?
