Cranberry Fudge Pie

Think chocolate covered cranberries in pie form! I found this recipe on the King Arthur Flour website, and I knew I had to try it.

The rich color of the cranberries makes a gorgeous presentation for the holidays!  (and it would have been nice if I had remembered to take a picture before we starting hacking into it!)  My family enjoyed this over Thanksgiving, and I feel sure it will make another appearance very soon.   [Read more…]

Caramel Fudge S’more Nachos

It’s like a S’more.  Only built like a nacho.

Oh yeah, and it has caramel.  And fudge.

And you don’t hold it on a stick over a fire.

I’d love to say this idea was mine, but it wasn’t.  Original idea belongs to George Duran.  I saw the title on his website and decided to run with it.  Mine are constructed different than his.  I didn’t check out his recipe until after I made them.  He uses chocolate bars and constructs them in a skillet.

I used caramel ice cream topping, hot fudge and caramel swirl marshmallows.  I don’t think you can go wrong, no matter how you do it.  Here’s how I constructed them: [Read more…]

Peanut Butter Oven S’mores

I have a huge love for peanut butter.  And chocolate.

The idea for this little snack popped into my mind one day and oh, what a wonderful idea it was.  The peanut butter gets all warm in the oven, providing the perfect spot for the toasted marshmallow to sit it’s gooey bottom.  Sorry for that visual, but it couldn’t be helped.

Here’s what you’ll need to satisfy any peanut butter and chocolate craving you may have: [Read more…]

Peanut Butter Cheater Smores and a Poll


No fire? No stick?  No problem.  This is #3 in the Peanut Butter Sandwich 365 challenge.  Cinnamon graham crackers, creamy peanut butter, Nutella and Marshmallow Cream.  It would probably be even better if you could start a fire, grab a stick and roast a real marshmallow, but this quick version was delish.

I also have a poll for you today.  I’m wondering if you are a “stick to the recipe” type of cook or if you see recipes more as guidelines for cooking.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches


I had a wild hair a few months ago to start another blog called Peanut Butter Sandwich 365.  That idea was 15 kinds of crazy though, so you’ll have to put up with a few peanut butter sandwiches here on Eat at Home.  I don’t think there will ever be 365 of them either.  And I have a bit broader definition of “sandwich” than is normal.

Butterscotch Snack Mix


Need to satisfy an extra big snack craving?  This is your recipe.  It makes a bunch.  And I warn you – if you start munching it, you won’t be able to stop.  I adapted the recipe from an old Taste of Home magazine.  The original called for Crispix Cereal, which I couldn’t find.  Do they even make that anymore?  I also changed a few other things.

Peanut Butter Balls

If you’re from Ohio I know it’s bothering you that I fully dunked the peanut butter balls in chocolate instead of making them look like buckeyes. I have a problem with all you Ohio people leaving little naked places on your candy. That’s just not right.

These are my must-have Christmas treat. I remember playing Barbies with my sister and we would break to go get a snack of peanut butter balls. Yum!

Gather up your ingredients:

2 sticks butter, softened
2 1/2 cups graham crackers
1 cup peanut butter
1 lb. powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla

semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 bar parafin wax

Cream the butter and peanut butter together in a mixer bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients until it’s all well blended. Roll into balls about the size of a walnut.

Melt a bag of semisweet chocolate chips with the 1/3 bar of wax in a double boiler. The wax thins the chocolate to help it coat better and also gives a glossy shine. Dip the balls into the melted chocolate and put on wax paper to set up. Store in the fridge.

If you have left over chocolate, throw in some pretzels.
