After School Sweets #tbt

The school bells rings in less than a week. We’d better take our after-school snack game up a notch! One of our Loaded Oatmeal Cookie Butter Blossoms will definitely not be enough to feed our hungry students. Better make a double batch, ummm make it a triple! We hope you a wonderful start this school year!

Oatmeal Cookie Butter Cookies Recipe

Add a Caramel Kiss to the center of each cooled cookie.

We’re Here for the Sweets!

Hooray!!! Our local football team, The Kansas City Chiefs, have made it to the playoffs and it’s the first time since 1994. A watch party is now on Saturday’s agenda. And what goes perfectly with football? Wings, nachos, pizza? Nope, not at our house. Not on a Saturday. We’re channeling our inner Girl Scout and baking Samoa Brownies. We love anything made with chocolate and caramel. Throw on some toasted coconut and we have just what we need to cheer on our team…or more accurately have our hubbies tell us the score while we lick the bowl! 

Samoa Brownies

  
Ingredients

1 brownie mix

3½ cups shredded coconut, toasted

1 package of Caramel Kisses, unwrapped

½ tsp. salt

4 tbsp. almond milk

3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips 

Instructions

Prepare brownie mix according to box directions and cool.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place coconut on baking pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir coconut and cook for another 2-3 minutes until toasted. Watch closely so it doesn’t burn.

In a large, microwaveable bowl, add unwrapped caramels, salt, and milk and cook on high for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally (about every 45-60 seconds). Cook until all caramels are melted and smooth.

Add coconut and mix together. Spread over cooled brownies.
