Apple Cider Caramels

Apple Cider Caramel | made with delicious fresh cider for a burst of fall flavors in your mouth! Recipe from bakerita.com There’s something incredibly satisfying about making your own candy. I always feel way more successful after an awesome batch of caramel or toffee than I do about a great batch of cookies – but the truth is, there’s no need for it to feel like an accomplishment, because it’s really not that hard!

(But you should still totally feel great about making these, because they’re awesome and everyone will love ‘em).

As long as you have an accurate candy thermometer, you’re in business. Candy does require a close eye, but only for a few minutes, and it all comes together so quickly that as long as you have all your ingredients put together before you start the recipe, you’ll be golden. [Read more…]

Salted Rosemary Pecan Brittle from Bakerita.com

Salted Rosemary Pecan Brittle

Salted Rosemary Pecan Brittle from Bakerita.com I’m a little…okay, a lot, behind on the holiday gift train. Seriously. 4 days before Christmas? Most of the parties are already over, but I digress. I may be super duper late with this recipe in blogger-world, but if you’re still needing a Christmas gift, a stocking stuffer, or a wonderfully tasty snack for Santa’s platter, or you know, just to snack on while your wrapping presents, this salted rosemary pecan brittle is amazing.

It is different from the typical peanut brittle. That was the original direction I was going with the recipe, but somehow things got away from me and I ended up with a wonderful version of brittle that I know I’m going to be making over and over again. [Read more…]

Sweet & Salty Brown Sugar Bars

Sweet & Salty Brown Sugar Bars | Bakerita.com One of the best things about baking, one of the things that makes me love doing it so frequently, is being able to share my baking. Obviously, I can’t eat everything I make or I would be huge, so that means I am constantly sharing my treats with family, friends, coworkers, sorority sisters, and neighbors.

These bars in particular went to the Stanley Steamer workers who happened to be at my house when I was finishing photographing them. The two young men were slightly confused to see my set-up, taking pictures of cookie bars on the table with my big background board all set up. Of course, they asked what I was doing, and after we talked about my blog for a little (and they finished cleaning the carpet), I sent them away with a big plate full of these bars. [Read more…]

No-Bake Snickers Pie

No-Bake Snickers Pie, a luscious cheesecake filling that is full of Snickers, peanuts, and dulce de leche! | Bakerita.comLast week, Ally and Mariah, two of my best friends from school, came to San Diego for a few days (and we all went to Newport Beach, and Santa Barbara!) and since I had brought Mariah a dessert made of all of her favorite things, Ally requested a dessert that had all of her favorite things. I know Ally has a major thing for Snickers, cheesecake, chocolate, and caramel (um…who doesn’t?) so I decided I would play off on a combo of all of them.

My mind ment straight to no-bake cheesecake, and my recipe for my Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Pie snuck into my head. Since Ally also loves Oreo crusts, I figured this would be absolutely perfect. [Read more…]
