Penuche Fudge - Brown Sugar At Its Best | Dawn's Recipes

It’s confession time! I didn’t actually make the beautiful fudge pictured above. It’s one of my mom’s specialties, so I asked if she’d whip up a batch for me and let me post the recipe this week. I’m still adjusting to being a mom of two and recovering from my latest c-section, so she was kind enough to oblige. Aren’t moms great? … Continue Reading →

Fleur de Sel Caramels from Your Microwave

The following recipe is based off one I discovered through the magic of Pinterest. The original recipe is posted on Food.com. I’d never tried microwaving caramels before, always preferring to do it on the stove top. With all the positive reviews I saw, I just had to give it a try. This method is definitely easier overall, though I find controlling the temperature is a bit easier on the stove. The stove top method allows me to stir and to use a candy thermometer while the caramel is still heating, whereas you have to stop the microwave every couple of minutes to … Continue Reading →

Bacon Caramels

One year Starbucks put salted caramel hot chocolate on their menu. What an incredible drink!

Salted caramel mocha…just like the salted caramel hot chocolate, but with some of the sweetness cut with coffee. Yum! … Continue Reading →

What are you going to do with all that leftover Easter candy? Nikki has provided the perfect solution by choosing Easter candy as this month’s Master Baker ingredient. Keep an eye out for her recipe round-up at the beginning of April. There are bound to be recipes for just about every type of Easter candy imaginable!

Heath Bar Cookies

Simply Recipes recently posted a recipe for these amazing Heath Bar Cookies. I love Heath Bars. My pepere got me hooked on them at an early age. So once I saw this recipe, I just had to make a batch. Wow! I usually have pretty good self-control when it comes to sweets. I ate about half a dozen of these the first night, then another half dozen the next day. I brought the remaining cookies to work, where I knew my hungry co-workers would happily keep me from eating all the cookies myself. I made one small change to the … Continue Reading →
