Gooey Chocolate Oreo Fudge Bars

Other titles I considered for this post: OMG Bars, Chocolate Avalanche Bars, and anything with “Amazing” in it.

These are some of the easiest bars I have ever made, and definitely some of the most delicious.

Chocolate Oreo Fudge Bars

Because they are basically sugar and fat. That’s why. These are bars you should only ever make in a situation where you are going to give them all away because you will eat the whole pan if you keep them in the house. Continue reading

Adult Dirt Dessert

Not adult like booze…adult like chocolate mousse instead of chocolate pudding, and white chocolate ghosts and Milano cookies instead of gummy worms.

Although a boozy version of this would be kind of awesome. That may need to happen next…

Adult Dirt Dessert! Such a cute Halloween dessert from The Culinary Capers!

But for real you guys, this stuff is like crack. It’s dangerous, addictive, and when it’s gone, you’ll cry for more.

It’s soooooooper rich, so a little goes a long way, but the sad part is, even though your mouth is going AH STOP TOO RICH, your stomach is all BUT I HAVE ROOM! I HAVE ROOM FOR MORE! Continue reading

Oreo Cheesecake Bars

So I have this coworker. Her office is next to mine, which is across the hall from the staff kitchen.

Which is where I stash my treats when I bake something for the office.

So while, for me, the proximity to the kitchen, and my treats, is no big deal, I’ve slowly come to realize something about my coworker.

I’ve become her food drug dealer. Continue reading

Oreo Cupcakes

I’ve always been a fan of Super Bowl parties. Not because I care too much about football, I’m really not a huge fan although live games are fun to go to.

No, I like the Super Bowl because it’s an excuse to get together with a bunch of friends in the middle of winter, get cozy on the couch and eat a few snacks. The Super Bowl is sort of like the New Years Eve  of February, and I am always for a good party.

This year, I went overboard (really this shouldn’t surprise anyone) on the snacks. I just had too many recipes I wanted to try, and creating a cupcake that tasted like an Oreo was one of them.
