Chocolate and Caramel Pretzel Bars

Anyone that loves a sweet & savory treat will love these bars!  A pretzel pecan crust is topped with dark chocolate chips, caramel and topped with more dark chocolate and a pretzel.  They're absolutely amazing! As the days of fall come, I tend to enjoy some of my more decadent treats.  Those being caramel, pecans, and anything that involved pumpkin and apples.  I don't know why it is - perhaps it has something to do with the gorgeous fall colors, or the intoxicating scents and flavors at my local farmers market.  I love taking in these flavors and pairing them with their opposites - salty/sweet and creamy/crunchy.  Opposites attract, which is how these Chocolate and Caramel Pretzel Bars came to be.

These cookies are nothing short of amazing!  The fudgy, chocolaty dough is rolled in mini chocolate chips, and then stuffed with a Rolo candy.  If you're a caramel lover like me, you know that Rolo's are filled with a buttery caramel - a nice little surprise when you bite into this delicious cookie. These cookies come together easily.  The dough is a simple chocolate cookie dough, and refrigerated after mixing.  You then cut the dough evenly Continue Reading...

German Chocolate Brownie Bites

German Chocolate Brownie Bites

Today is my husband's birthday.  Pretty much every year he requests German Chocolate for his birthday cake.  Last year was a big milestone birthday for him, and I had a big German Chocolate Cake made for a get-together we had here at our place to celebrate.  Since we did the big cake last year, I decided to still do German Chocolate, but with brownies.  Meet the cute and delicious German Chocolate Brownie Bite! These brownie bites are certainly cute, but every little morsel is packed with some serious flavor.  These moist brownies are topped with a delicious, home made coconut-pecan frosting that is traditional with most German Chocolate cakes.  I added some mini-chocolate chips, to amp up the chocolate, which compliments the brownie perfectly! To create the brownie bites, I Continue Reading...
