Strawberry Chocolate Chip Krispie Treats

This post is from Kate.  I love having Kate share her recipes here with us!

The closer we get to summer, the more weddings, birthdays and other parties we end up going to. This year, our celebrating season kicked off with one of my best friends getting married. The ceremony was in the evening so I volunteered to put together lunch for the bridal party to munch on while getting ready – and these sweet treats capped off the meal.

Krispie treats have been a favorite around here lately. They’re quick and easy enough that I can throw them together during nap time and I’ve been finding the basic recipe is really easy to switch up to keep things from being too routine. For this one, I used flavored marshmallows and mixed in some chocolate chips. The result is a cross between a chocolate covered strawberry and a krispie treat – so good!

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…]

Warm Cinnamon Apple Sauce with Toasted Marshmallows

Don’t you just love a dish that tastes amazingly delicious, but is super simple?  Toasted marshmallows don’t have to be eaten only at bonfires.  They pair up wonderfully with cinnamon apple sauce.

Pudding Cake

Chocolate cake that bakes with its own pudding – what more can you ask for? It had been ages since I had this cake. Mom used to make it when I was little. Sometimes I requested it for my birthday. Last weekend, we dug around in Mom’s recipe box until we found the instructions for this cake.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 Devil’s Food cake mix + the ingredients needed to make the batter (I didn’t put those in the picture)
12 marshmallows, snipped in quarters or about a cup or so of mini marshmallows
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups water

In a 13×9 pan, mix the brown sugar and cocoa together. Stir in 2 cups of water. Scatter the marshmallows over the top.

Mix up the cake batter and spoon it over the top of the mixture in the pan.

Be careful transferring the pan to the oven. It is very sloshy with all that water in the bottom. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min.

Serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream if you like. The pudding is on the bottom and I just drizzled it over the top of the pieces as I spooned them out of the pan. The cake didn’t even last 24 hours and I only ate one piece! I better make another one soon.
