recipe: sea salt almond clusters

Ingredients:

3 cups whole almonds
1 ½ cup bittersweet chocolate, chopped
white sugar
sea salt

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Spread almonds onto a baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven.

2. Put chocolate into a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl. Place in microwave, cooking for 40 seconds at a time. Stir frequently, until chocolate is melted.

3. Remove chocolate from microwave. Stir in almonds, completely covering each one.

4. Spoon a cluster of chocolate-covered almonds onto a baking sheet (I tried for 10 per cluster). Repeat until cookie sheet is full. Sprinkle with sea salt and sugar. Put in refrigerator for at least 1 hour in order to set. Clusters will keep for about one month!

recipe: peanut butter cup brownies

An Instagram friend posted a picture of some peanut butter cup brownies that she had baked a few months back. I thought that they looked soooo delicious, and so I asked her to send me the recipe. She did, and after changing a few ingredients, I went on to make them for our family. I think that they were only in our fridge for about three days before we devoured them all. This is something that I will definitely be making again and again.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Ingredients: 

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup butter
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 large eggs
1 ½ cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp salt
9 peanut butter cups
butter, to grease

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×9 baking dish with butter.

2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine first 4 ingredients. Place in microwave and cook for 40-second increments until mixture is smooth.

3. Beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Stir in microwave ingredients. Slowly add flour and salt and mix until well combined.

4. Pour half of the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Put peanut butter cups evenly on top. Then pour the remaining mixture on top. Place in oven for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overcook.

These are tremendously delicious cookies to make that will probably remind you of your childhood. I made them when we had no stove, and relied on the use of our microwave instead. They came out great! Please try them out for yourselves.

½ cup milk
2 cups white sugar
1 cup peanut butter
¼ cup cocoa powder
¾ cup butter
½ tsp salt
3 cups large flake oats

Put first six ingredients in a microwave safe container and cook on high for about 8 minutes. Remove and add oats.)

simple valentine’s day trifles

Makes 2 servings

This is an extremely quick and easy treat to make for that special someone on Valentine’s Day. It is a dessert that won’t break the bank, nor will it cut into your already precious time. Place in champagne flutes for a special touch. It is impossible to mess up this recipe, and it is certified to be paid back in even sweeter kisses.

Simple Valentine’s Day Trifles

Ingredients:

¾ cups raspberries, fresh
½ cups Oreos, broken
Whipped cream

Steps:

1. Start by measuring the ingredients. You will need approximately five Oreos to amount to ½ cup of crushed cookies. Once the raspberries and cookies have been prepared, set aside.

2. Using the champagne flutes, fill each one with ¼ of the crushed Oreos. Place ¼ of the raspberries on top. Then add whipped cream. This should take you to the halfway point in the flute. Repeat once more. Then top with leftover crushed Oreos, and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
