There is just something about mini foods that I love, so it’s no surprise that I went and mini-fied the Frozen Peanut Butter Pie from here.
Along with that I also added 1 cup of crushed Butterfinger to the mix and then finished with a dollop of honey on top and more crushed Butterfinger for a decorative finish. If peanut butter is not your thing, you can swap that out for Biscoff or Nutella. I made a half batch with Biscoff spread and crushed Biscoff cookies, and oh-my, it was so good.
This is one of those highly adaptable recipes, so if you tweak this to make it your own, please come back and share with the rest of us what you created.
Let’s do cake this Monday morning and kick start our week with this Malted Chocolate Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze. I’m all for easy bundt cakes and this one is no exception. This one comes together easily and quickly.
Of course you can skip the sprinkles, but I decided to give the cake a hit of festiveness with some color. And to make it really pop I switched the chocolate glaze to a white chocolate. Other than that, I stayed to true to the recipe.

Flan is one of my favorite desserts, and with that, I decided to tweak the original Oaxacan Coconut Flan recipe to what you see here with the raspberry glaze.
Since flan on it’s own is fairly light in flavor it’s a great canvas for mixing and matching flavors. Sure it’s not traditional to skip the caramel, and of course you can always flavor the caramel, but I wanted try something new. Read more
Some days a sweet quick fix is needed, and for those days, these Chewy Chocolate-Caramel Bars have you covered! Yep, they come together in just 25 minutes.
Think Samoas Girl Scout cookies with nuts, layered on a chewy brownie crust. If you aren’t familiar with those cookies, then you are in for a sweet discovery. I brought these to a family get-together and they were devoured by kids and adults alike.
To get started hit the jump here for the recipe.
To make what you see here. (2) drop the ratio of the chocolate chips from 1 cup to ¾ cups, same with the walnuts (3) add in ¾ cup of coconut (4) and of course, if walnuts aren’t to your preference, switch them out to a nut that is (5), or to make this your own, switch out any of the add-ins to your preference, just keep the ratio of each add-in to 3/4 cup.
Happy Cinco de Mayo. With that, I thought I’d kick start the day with this Huevos Rancheros casserole that I baked up in a cast iron skillet. Of course I did so because I had to split the mixture into two, one like you see below with the spinach add-in, and another exactly as the recipe is written here.
My family is full of picky eaters, so I’m use to being a short order cook. Luckily this recipe is highly adaptable and as you can see I took some liberties with the classic Huevos Rancheros. I usually like mine with some fire roasted tomatoes, chopped fresh tomatoes, tomatillos, green chilies, sour cream, cilantro, lime and for the cheese I will even sometimes swap it out for manchego at times. Let’s just say I like my Huevos Rancheros stacked! This is exactly why you see all the little side dishes of extras.
As I mentioned, this is an adaptable recipe, so start with the recipe here, then add to it with whatever your preference maybe. But as always, please share your riffs, spins and add-ins with the rest of us in the comment section below so we can’t give your version a go.
Brownies are always a good choice, so this Mother’s Day, I’m gearing you up with this Dulce de Leche Fluff Brownie—made spring-like for May with some colorful liners.
Of course you can stick to the recipe and just make it in a pan, but I wanted the presentation to be fun and bright. And, it’s a bit less messy on the fingers this way.
To make it as seen in the pictures, fill the liners 1/3 of the way up and bake them either in cupcake pan or just place the filled liners on a bakesheet, like I did for 16 minutes. As you can tell, even without the sidewalls of a cupcake pan, these held their shape.
So go ahead, and make your Mother’s Day even more perfect with these Dulce de Leche Fluff Brownies.
