Cookies are something I always enjoy baking and sharing with others.  They tend to make enough to bring to work, have throughout the week at home, or freeze for later (although I don’t know why you would have any to freeze and not eat them right away).  And the recipes are often simple or less complicated that you can quickly whip up a batch.  Today I have 4 different cookie varieties to share.  All are incredibly soft and chewy (hence the blog name), large (like large enough to share), and contain great flavor combinations.  Here’s what I have for you: Soft & Chewy Carrot Cake Cookies Soft & Chewy Dulce de Leche Cookies Soft & Chewy Cookies & Cream Cookies Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies   Now let’s walk through how to make them.  Each recipe makes 7-8 cookies (one actually makes 12 but who’s counting), but they are decent sized cookies and can be shared … Continue reading

The Harry Potter books are something I grew up reading and then fell in love with the movies as they came out in theaters.  To this day, we have a Harry Potter marathon at our house some weekend during the winter months to enjoy the films.  If you have about 20 hours of free time, I suggest you do the same 😊 Kidding!  We don’t watch the movies in one sitting but it is fun to watch them consecutively and within a few weeks of each other to get the full effect.  The one thing I struggle with is snacks and beverages.  I want something themed to go along with our viewing but don’t always plan ahead.  This year, I am planning way ahead.  We’re going to enjoy various versions of Butterbeer (IFYKY) and a few themed snacks.  Here’s what we’ll be enjoying! Copycat Hot Butterbeer Copycat Cold Butterbeer Copycat … Continue reading

Who doesn’t love peanut butter or brownie desserts?  Any hands up?  I didn’t think so 😊 But if you aren’t sure, I’m confident my recipe for Triple Layer Peanut Butter Brownies will change your mind.  Think rich chocolatey brownie, topped with a layer of rich and creamy peanut butter, followed by whipped cream and chopped peanut butter cups.  It’s heavenly!  And won’t last long! The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray. Prepare a boxed brownie mix according to package instructions.  Use any brand or box mix of your choosing.  I’m partial to the fudge brownie mixes or anything that is going to be super rich and chewy.  Bake and let cool completely. While the brownies are cooling, prepare the peanut butter layer.  Add the cream cheese and powdered sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer.  Beat until creamy.  Add the peanut butter and beat again, until … Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Bars are one of my top 10 favorite desserts.  They are essentially cream sandwiches you make on a rimmed baking sheet.  A combination of chocolate and peanut butter makes up the flavors in the cookie with a hint of sea salt sprinkled on top.  The filling is basic vanilla ice cream.  However, you can use any ice cream flavor of your choosing.  Chocolate ice cream would make the perfect chocolate extreme dessert.  Salted Caramel ice cream would pair nicely with the chocolate/peanut butter cookies.  You get the idea!  Make this dessert your own. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.  Generously spray an 18×13 rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.  Please do not forget this step or you will have quite a hard time removing the bars! Melt 2 sticks of butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. … Continue reading

Do you remember those yummy ice cream pizzas you probably had as a child at Dairy Queen?  They came in multiple favors and were typically served at a party.  They were my FAVORITE!  And there was a time in my life that I believe they were discontinued, and I was admittedly bummed to never have one again.  However, I was able to find a way to recreate them as copycat versions of the original. I have 3 recipes to share with you today for Copycat Treatzza Pizzas…I call them Ice Cream Pizza. M&M Ice Cream Pizza Heath Bar Ice Cream Pizza Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pizza   Let’s start by walking through the M&M Ice Cream Pizza.  You start with an Oreo crust, top it with vanilla ice cream, drizzle with hot fudge, and add M&M candies to finish it off.  This is a classic ice cream dessert that’s incredibly … Continue reading

Any recipe that is “no bake” is pretty amazing.  The recipes are typically simple to make and often don’t take a lot of time (just plan ahead so the pie has time to chill).  My favorite “no bake” recipes are for dessert.  You can make some delicious bars, pies, etc. without ever turning on your oven.  So, if you aren’t a baker or don’t have a lot of experience baking, these pies are for you! The recipes I want to share with you today are for 4 different No Bake Pies.  A little variety, something for everyone.  I think these pies are rich in flavor and will be a crowd favorite so whip up one or two for your next gathering! Here are the recipes: No Bake Butterfinger Pie No Bake Heath Bar Pie No Bake Mint Pie No Bake Pistachio Pie   First up is No Bake Butterfinger Pie.  … Continue reading

Growing up I always loved a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  I mean, who didn’t?  It was a staple in my daily life and it’s making a comeback.  However, instead of sandwich form I’m pairing it with another food I love.  What for it……chicken wings.  Yes, peanut butter and jelly chicken wings.  A little louder for those in the back…PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY CHICKEN WINGS! The recipe can be found here. These wings are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and will satisfy any craving.  They are the perfect combination of sweet and spicy while being incredibly savory.  The chicken wings are coated in a delicious peanut sauce and the raspberry jelly dipping sauce brings it all together.  The combination of peanut butter, jelly, and chicken might sound weird, but I strongly suggest putting your hesitation aside and giving these wings a try! Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F and lining … Continue reading
