Chocolate Salted Caramel Nutella Brownies

Soooo sometimes I like to bake… And also, when I have a bunch of things in my cupboard that I forgot about. When I run into this conundrum, I like to throw all forgotten items together and see what happens. Insert: Baileys salted caramel liqueur, trader joe’s cocoa almond spread, caramel, and eggs that were going to expire soon. End result? A pan of ooey, gooey brownies, topped with chocolate caramel gelato and melted caramel sauce. Recipe is below!

Chocolate Salted Caramel Nutella Brownies

Ingredients:

salted caramel brownies

Directions:

Heat oven to 350 F. Mix all ingredients in 1 bowl, minus the caramel sauce and gelato. The consistency should be a little thicker than a normal brownie mix – If it looks a little runny, add in a little bit more flour. Grease a 9×9 glass pan with butter and pour the mixture in.

Bake for a total of 25-30 minutes. 5-10 minutes before the brownies are finished, take out and drizzle caramel sauce over top, then put back in oven for the remaining time. The caramel should be bubbling a little bit, and the brownies should a little gooey when they are taken out. Serve warm, topped with chocolate gelato, a drizzle of caramel sauce, and a pinch of salt. Enjoy!

Rice Crispy Treats with Dried Fruit Dipped in White Chocolate

If you are looking for a more “healthy” rice crispy treat, look no more. These treats have dried fruit in them… which, by my definition, makes them healthy 🙂 You can add any type of fruit – I made 1 batch and split into 2 – with dried strawberries & blueberries. These are perfect for spring… or just to make for a special treat!

Rice Crispy Treat

Rice Crispy Treats with Dried Fruit Dipped in White Chocolate

Ingredients:

6-8 Cups Rice Crispy Cereal

1/3 cup of chopped up dried strawberries (I used steves paleogoods & chopped up into tiny pieces)

1/3 cup of dried blueberries (i used steves paleogoods)

1 tsp vanilla extract

3-4 TBSP butter

1 bag of mini marshmallows (or tall jar of marshmallow fluff)

1/2 tsp salt

white chocolate chips

optional: sprinkles

Directions:

Melt butter in a large pot on low heat – about 3-4. When the butter is melted down into liquid, add in the marshmallows/marshmallow flluff. Stir until all marshmallows are melted down and add in vanilla & salt. Once all is mixed together, add in the cereal, about 2 cups at a time. Keep adding the cereal until you have a nice consistency – if it’s too runny, add a little extra cereal until the marshmallows have covered the rice crispies evenly.

Remove the mixture from the pot & split into 2 bowls. Add in the dried strawberries in one bowl and mix well. Add in the dried blueberries in the second bowl and mix well. Press each mixture into a separate 8×8 greased (i used butter to grease) glass pan. I wet my hands with water so that the mixture didn’t stick to my hands when molding the treats into the pan. Place in fridge for 30-60 minutes, or until the rice crispy treats have hardened up. Once ready, take out of fridge and cut into desired pieces – I cut into rectangles. Place on parchment paper.

For the white chocolate: put white chocolate chips in a double broiler until melted down. Dip rice crispy treats and cover with desired amount of chocolate. Place on parchment paper – top with sprinkles, if you are feeling adventurous ;).Let set until chocolate has hardened (or put in fridge to harden faster). Enjoy!

Rice Crispy Treat 1

Peanut-Butter & Banana Rice Crispy Treats Dipped in Chocolate

Ingredients:

6-8 Cups Rice Crispy Cereal

3/4 jar of chocolate PB 2 (or 2TBS cocoa powder + 1/3 cup peanut butter)

1 banana (I had a frozen banana & just took out of the freezer before making)

3-4 TBSP butter

1 bag of mini marshmallows (or tall jar of marshmallow fluff)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

pinch of salt

Chocolate chips (milk or dark – I used enjoy life)

Directions:

Melt butter in a large pot with banana on low heat – about 3-4 (My banana was mushy and frozen, so it kind of melted down with the butter nicely). When the butter and banana are melted down into a thicker liquid, add in the marshmallows/marshmallow flluff. Stir until all marshmallows are melted down and add vanilla & salt. Once all is mixed together, add in the cereal, about 2 cups at a time. Keep adding the cereal until you have a nice consistency – if it’s too runny, add a little extra cereal until the marshmallows have covered the rice crispies evenly.

Remove the mixture from the pot and press into a 13×9 greased (i used butter to grease) glass pan. I wet my hands with water so that the mixture didn’t stick to my hands when molding the treats into the pan. Place in fridge for 30-60 minutes, or until the rice crispy treats have hardened up. Once ready, take out of fridge and cut into desired pieces. Place on parchment paper.

For the chocolate: put chocolate chips in a double broiler until melted down. Dip rice crispy treats and cover with desired amount of chocolate. Place on parchment paper until chocolate has hardened (or put in fridge to harden chocolate faster). Serve with chocolate milk & Enjoy!
