Fresh Raspberry Bars

Is it just me or should raspberry be spelled rasberry? Or maybe I just say it wrong but I’ve never heard it pronounced with a p.

This is not your typical dessert, which makes it fun! I’m very much a sweet girl, I love my chocolate and decadence. This is more of a interesting combination of flavors and perfect for something different. The lemon with raspberries and goat cheese just make a marvelous flavor. Don’t be scared by the goat cheese, I think it really gives it a kick. You can of course, use all cream cheese and I’m sure it will still taste great. You can’t really go wrong with cream cheese.

We had a bbq yesterday evening which is why I made them. I typically try and make not so healthy food when people are over that way I don’t get stuck with the temptation of eating it all. Everybody loved them and some gladly took some home with them! This recipe is a little time consuming so you definitely don’t want to make it if you’re in a rush. It’s not hard, just takes time to put in oven and cook the shortbread then in the oven again to cook the custard of course time to cool. So make this when you have an evening event or the day before. It tastes just as good as the first day.

Crock Pot Chocolate Cherry Dump Cake

molten2 posts in a day?? Man, I’m on a roll…really though I just had to post this ASAP because it’s that good. I would compare it to the molten cake at Chili’s minus the hot fudge.¬†Which is totally bomb by the way if you haven’t tried. Now I know this is something I always say but this recipe really is super easy. Everyone who tried it loved it, I even invited some friends over to indulge. It might not look amazing, in fact it reminds me of that chocolate “dirt” with the gummy bear worms dessert…anyone else know what I’m talking about? I mostly saw it as a kid…Anyways, don’t judge my amazing¬†iPhone¬†pic. One day I’ll be an amazing food photographer but until then…use your imagination.

Phyllo Hazelnut Berry Bites

get-attachment (2)As I’m sitting down for the evening, I literally have a spoon in a jar of the hazelnut spread I used for this dessert. I think to myself if I only take small scoops out with the it’s not that bad…this is why I’m having trouble losing the last 6 lbs. from my baby boy.

I went to some kind of party, whether it be a baby shower or a birthday celebration, can’t recall now but someone had made this dessert. I’ve always loved Nutella. There’s a story my parents like to tell that entails me as a child hiding behind the shed getting down on some Nutella. I come inside and my mom asks if I was eating chocolate. I deny it of course. She then proceeds to take me to a mirror and I instantly start balling because the evidence is all over my face and I was caught in my fat lie.

Phyllo Hazelnut Berry Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 Package of phyllo mini cups (find them in the freezer section by the pie crusts)
  • 1 container of any kind of hazelnut spread
  • 15 Blackberries/Raspberries or however many phyllo cups come in the box you buy

Directions:

  • Place cups on dish you are serving
  • Put about teaspoon into each cup, maybe a little less/more depending on your cup size.
  • Place berry on top
  • ūüôā that’s it, no more steps. How easy is that??

 

Butterfinger Crunch Cookie Bars

bars¬† So these are bomb, maybe I say that about all my recipes but I’m telling you the truth. I took these to a friend’s birthday party and these went like¬†hot¬†cakes. These are sooo not healthy but hey we are allowed to indulge sometimes! Actually the healthier I eat the more aware I become of¬†ingredients. I cringe when I see 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of sugar but then I make myself forget what’s in it while I eat it.

 

The original recipe called for heath bars but my little store here where I live didn’t have it.¬†That’s where the butterfinger¬†comes in and I was not disappointed. I’m sure you could probably use any kind of candy but the heath and butterfinger¬†have the crunch to it so it probably works best.¬†These are perfect to take somewhere so you can have one or two pieces and then let everyone else eat them :D.

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 butterfingers or if using heath bars 1-1/2 cups
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate

Directions:

  • Preheat¬†oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl whisk together the flour and baking soda. In a large bowl combine butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and butterfinger/heath bits.
  • If using Butterfingers place bars in plastic bag and smash with cup or weapon of choice to little bite size pieces.¬† If using heath bar bits just by the bag that’s already in pieces and make life easier,
  • Spray a 9×13 pan and spread dough in pan.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven, they will still be soft in the center. Let them cool completely and then cut into them.

As always, if you try them please let me know what the outcome was!

 

 

 

 

Oreo Bars

I wouldn’t normally make this kind of dessert because 2 months ago I just gave birth to our handsome little man.¬† Unfortunately, weight gain is a side effect of pregnancy so now I’m all about healthy sweets. I was making dinner yesterday for a mom who just gave birth so I decided to use it as my opportunity¬†ūüôā to make it, keep some and than send it away. Hey, maybe she has more self-control then me. It literally took me about 5 minutes to make and then 10 or so to set and get hard. This will be a good idea for a sudden invite somewhere or if you are having a “fat day” as I call them and want to eat something bad. I don’t remember where I saw this recipe so sorry I can’t give credit to them :/.
