I’m usually done with pumpkin after Thanksgiving, so I thought I’d sneak in one last pumpkin recipe in before my self-inflicted posting-about-pumpkin deadline. It’s a good one.

Pumpkin meets both caramel AND marshmallow fluff in these ooey gooey bars, and the result is sticky, sweet, decadent, and delicious. Somehow, these manage to taste vaguely like cinnamon rolls. It’s magical. These come together in one bowl and a few minutes, which always makes me happy (less dishes, more time! Wahoo!).

These Pumpkin Caramel Marshmallow Fluff Bars are gooey, sweet, and irresistible! These easy bars are sure to be devoured quickly. | Recipe from Bakerita.com These bars are adapted from my Banana Nut Bars. The edges of these bars get dense and soft, while the middle stays fudgy and gooey. I used the new, reformulated I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and the result was amazing. I love that it’s made from real, simple ingredients and is still unbelievably delicious! These bars were buttery, and stayed so soft and moist. I also LOVE that I can get it in stick form! It makes it so easy to use in baking.

Obviously, we haven’t talked about two of the stars of this show: caramel and marshmallow fluff! I use a thin dulce de leche as my caramel, but any kind of caramel sauce will work. I would stick to thicker varieties (I like Trader Joe’s Fleur De Sel Caramel) and avoid the “ice cream topping” caramel sauces.

Mmm…so good, but so sticky! I used a knife to dollop the fluff, and I highly suggest you grease the knife (or spoon, or whatever you’re using) before you start. It’ll save you a big ole sticky mess! The fluff will puff up and make beautiful swirls in your bars, just be careful not to swirl too much, you don’t want the fluff to be swirled into oblivion.

If you’re not sick of pumpkin yet, you’ll love these treats!! Enjoy :)

Pumpkin Caramel Marshmallow Fluff Bars

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8-by-8-inch pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper and spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Combine brown sugar and melted I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the egg, vanilla, and pumpkin. Whisk to combine. Add the flour, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir until just combined, taking care not to over-mix.

Cranberries are a symbol of winter. The festive, cheery red color, the sweet sauce (hopefully homemade) that gets slathered all over your Thanksgiving dinner, and the piles of bags of cranberries that you see placed at the front of the produce section of the market, basking in their 15 minutes of fame, until Christmas passes and they’re replaced.

And this year, prepare for cranberry overload, because I’ve been having too much fun playing with cranberries in the kitchen! I’ve always adored the tart, sweet bite that cranberries add to any dessert, and I’ve always fondly remembered how much I loved these browned butter cranberry lime muffins that I made way back when Bakerita was only a few months old. The tartness of cranberries adds a flavor to dessert that I find absolutely enticing, and if you’ve never tried it, well…you’re in for a major treat. [Read more…]

This Spiced Apple Tart features cinnamon and nutmeg spiced apples nestled in an oatmeal-almond crust. This gluten-free and vegan dessert is healthy enough to double as breakfast! | #recipe from Bakerita.com Apples are, no doubt, one of my favorite ingredients to use (clearly – take a look at all my apple recipes!) and definitely one of my favorite things to eat. And eat a lot of them I do! There’s days where apples slathered with a little almond butter replaces meals. It’s the perfect treat, fills me right up, and they’re so delicious.

I cannot get enough of the giant Honeycrisp apples they sell at the grocery store near me, and that’s what I used in this recipe! Honeycrisp’s are my favorite, and I love the slightly tart edge they have. The flavor tasted so succulent with the aromatic spices. Use your favorite apple here though – any kind will be amazing.

These Salted Peanut Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies are studded with roasted peanuts, butterscotch chips, and sprinkled with flaky sea salt! These cookies are a must have!! #Recipe from Bakerita.com This cookie has brought together a whole bunch of my favorite flavors and textures. It’s seriously so good. Let’s go over why: 1) Salted, because I’m a firm believer that a sprinkle of high quality flaky sea salt makes any dessert exponentially better, 2) Peanuts…because I love some good crunch in my cookie, and 3) Butterscotch, oh my sweet yumminess, because they’re delicious and add the perfect touch of sweetness.

These things add up to one deeeelicious cookie (or, actually, a few dozen). The inspiration for the recipe came from my kitchen organization, actually. I keep my flours, sugars, oats, and some baking chips in little clear containers stacked on one of our countertops, and I was doing some rearranging…I put my butterscotch chips on top of peanuts, and thought “hmm…those would taste delicious together.” Next to them was the oatmeal container, and voila: Salted Peanut Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies were born.

These apple cider poached pears are super easy, and you can make your own super simple caramel sauce with the poaching liquid!! Too cool!

Apple Cider Poached Pears in Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry

These apple cider poached pears are super easy, and you can make your own super simple caramel sauce with the poaching liquid!! Too cool!


Apple Cider Poached Pears in Cinnamon Sugar Puff Pastry sounds sort of scary. Actually, just the word “poaching” sounds scary! Probably because poaching an egg is hard, poaching has gotten a bad wrap all around. But seriously guys, poaching pears could NOT be easier. The actual poaching process for these pears took less than 20 minutes (it could be up to 40 though, if your pears are larger!), but it’s so hands off. You’re just simmering pears in liquid. To wrap and bake in glorious puff pastry only took another 30, so we were enjoying these poached pears barely an hour after I started them. And that includes the extra time I had to take pictures. Seriously, you can be enjoying these so soon.

Uh, and in that time…you’re also MAKING CARAMEL. [Read more…]

The Ultimate Snickers Cake

The Ultimate Snickers Cake | Dark chocolate cake, peanut caramel filling, peanut butter cream cheese frosting, with chocolate ganache and caramel. Recipe from Bakerita.com This cake is not for the light of heart. It’s big, it’s messy, it has a lot of (pretty easy) steps, and it takes a little while. BUT: it tastes just like a Snicker’s bar, and it’s worth every second of effort that you put into it.

I don’t wanna scare you guys, it’s not a hard cake…but the recipe does look a little scary and daunting down there. Yeah, it’s a lot of steps, but the actual steps aren’t too hard, and I promise, this cake is forgiving! And every piece of it tastes so delicious, there’s no way you can go wrong. [Read more…]
