Baking Some New Treats!!

2 Feb

I have had some time on my hands lately. Not a ton because I like to sleep in. (wink wink) But I am looking for a new job. I have seen a few recipes that I wanted to try and thought now would be a good time!!!

I made some crispy bits chocolate chip cookies!! These were seriously epic. You make a batch of chocolate chip cookies.

Cook only half of them. Make sure they cool.

IMG_3488Bake them.
IMG_3490They are almost like a twice baked potato but WAY better!!

We had a potluck to go to last weekend. I made some homemade Samoas. (like the Girl Scout cookies) I made these a long time ago but I thought I would make them again!!

Roasted coconut!

I made some mocha granola for breakfast.
IMG_3494Well January 24th was National Peanut Butter Day. I didn’t know until the 23rd and I was already planning on making the samoas!! Buzzfeed put out a list of 23 Mouth-Watering Peanut Butter recipes.

It wasn’t until a few days later that I actually made something from the list! No Bake Peanut Butter Bars.
IMG_3527 I thought they were ok. Dan thought they were great and would eat them again.

I had a friend send me this recipe for caramel brownies with a pretzel bottom. I really wanted to make these but this whole baking thing was getting out of control. I thought perfect…Super Bowl!!! I made these yesterday to take to the Super Bowl party we went to.
