There are only 5 days until Valentines Day! Do you have fun plans? I’ve actually never really been that into Valentine’s Day – but I do like any excuse I can get to bake delicious and festive treats. There is just something about heart shaped sprinkles that makes any baked good taste better! Like Caramel Stuffed Red Velvet Cookies. Sure these fudgy chocolatey cookies stuffed with ooey gooey caramel and melty chocolate chips would taste amazing on their own – but the Valentine’s sprinkles just make them so darn cute!!  So I guess I liked – I am into Valentine’s Day.  :)

Happy December!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars

How have I never made cookie bars before? That is really a great question, because these were SO easy and SO good.  I was sitting on the couch the other night, craving something sweet (by the other night I mean every night…) and decided I wanted to whip up something quickly.  No chilling of the dough or softening of the butter or getting out the heavy stand mixer (I love my mixer, but it is so darn heavy, and there is no room for it on our counter top!).  And then I stumbled on this recipe from Averie Cooks and had to make them immediately. It is seriously so easy! Just mix together the ingredients, spread it into a baking pan, and bake for about 20 minutes. Voila! Chocolate peanut butter heaven. …

Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Chewy chocolate cookies.  The name alone says it all – these cookies are to die for.  They have quickly made my list of top 5 favorite cookie recipes.  That is no small feat, because I am kind of a cookie addict.  They are rich and chocolaty from the cocoa powder and the chopped bittersweet chocolate.  If you are a chocoholic, you will love this recipe!  It is the kind of cookie that just begs for a glass of milk.  The dark corn syrup contributes to the most amazing chewy texture.  I definitely think you should add this cookie to your weekend baking lineup!  Ok, I realize that most normal people probably don’t have a weekend baking lineup. So just add it to your recipe list for the next time you want an amazing chocolaty cookie!…
