Crazy Cream Cheese Cookie Bars

Crazy Cookie Bars

These bars are a little over the top, but if you like the idea of Magic Cookie Bars combined with cheesecake, they’re worth a try. I was going for really tall Magic Cookie Bars, so rather than just pour on the Eagle Brand to hold all the chips together, I mixed it with cream cheese, […]

Reese's Minis Peanut Butter Bars

If you love peanut butter bars but have had bad experiences with ones that are too dry, try this recipe! As of today, it’s my favorite. These are dense, moist and fun to look at thanks to the scattering of Reese’s Minis and Reese’s Pieces on top. However, if you don’t want to deal with […]

Caramel Apple Circles

The Easy Chocolate Caramel Bars were great, but I wanted to try a second version a little more like the Sheila’s Dream Bars we sometimes buy at Pot Belly Sandwich Shop. Those bars don’t contain oats, and I read somewhere that the caramel in the middle is the kind used for candy apples.  There are […]

Quick Chocolate Caramel Bars

I couldn’t decide whether to call these “quick” or “easy” but settled on “easy” because even though you can throw these together in a matter of minutes (no mixer required!), they take a while to cool. These are bar cookies with a shortbread/oatmeal base surrounding a center layer of melted caramel filled Ghiradelli chocolate squares.  […]

Chewy Wheat Bran Granola Bars

My grocery store recently moved the unprocessed wheat bran from the bulk section to the cereal aisle. The downside is it’s now in a box, so it costs a little more. The upside is that the box, which happens to be Hodgson Mill brand, has a bunch of good recipes on the back. This is […]

Caramel Filled Oatmeal Walnut Bars

As Thanksgiving approaches, I’d like to give thanks for the caramel bits which have released us from the task of unwrapping individual candies.  The task is tedious in and of itself, but what drives me crazy is how the wrappers always find their way to the floor, where a dog will inevitably be waiting,  leading to the other […]

Special Marshmallow Treats

Special Marshmallow Treats

This may not be the most exciting recipe, but it’s what I made today and I was pretty happy with the results. In an effort to use up what was left of a giant box of Special K and a bag of marshmallows I’d bought for no particular reason, I substituted Special K for the […]
