Baking Sweet Melodies

There’s beautiful music being made in the kitchen today and it isn’t coming from our budding artists or the radio. Our oven contains a crescendo of yumminess that it’s heard before, but this time it has a whole new tune. We’ve changed a few notes of a classic to produce Melody Bars – Symphony Bars with a kick! These mocha toffee brownies will have you humming with satisfaction and glee! Yippee!

1 box dark brownie mix, plus ingredients on the back of the box

1 Starbucks Via

2 large (4.25 oz) Symphony candy bars with almonds and toffee chips

1 cup Heath bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of an 9×13 baking dish.  Make brownie mix according to the directions on the back of the box. Stir in the Starbucks Via packet. Spread half of the batter into a prepared pan and place the candy bars side by side on top.  Cover with the remaining batter, smoothing with a spatula.  Sprinkle Heath bits evenly over the top and bake for 40-45 minutes.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack before cutting.

Friendly and Sweet

Dare we say ice cream sundaes are the friendliest treat. The toppings have a mutual adoration to each other, making them all better together! And what could be easier than using pre-scooped ice cream cups and opening a few bags and jars of your favorite toppings. Gather your friends and build a Saturday to remember!

Hello Sweetheart

There are a whole bunch of reasons why this Saturday’s treat will win your Sweetie’s heart! It makes no difference whether you call them Hello Dollies, Magic Bars, or 7 Layer Bars. What matters is how incredibly yummy they are! These easy to make goodies are everything plus a little bit more guaranteed to make your Sweetheart’s day!

Ingredients:

½ cup butter (melted)

1½ cups graham cracker crumbs

1 cup coconut flakes

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup red M&Ms

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

1/2 cup Heath Bits

1 cup pecans, chopped

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

While the oven is preheating, melt the butter in a 9×13 baking pan.

Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs evenly over the butter in the bottom of the pan, press lightly into the butter.

Evenly cover the crust with the coconut flakes, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and pecans. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes. Watch it closely until the edges are golden brown. You want to be careful not to burn the coconut and it can happen very quickly.

Let cool about 5 minutes and run a knife around the edges of the pan to prevent sticking.

Allow to cool completely before slicing into squares.

A Sweetful Thank You

Tis the season to be thankful. Thankful for family, friends, health, freedom, and…cookie dough! We’d personally like to send gratitude to the baker who created it! While we’re being grateful, there’s no group more deserving than our children’s teachers. They tirelessly work for the benefit of our kids. Hopefully, our Harvest Oatmeal Cookies will be a sweet way to show these precious educators how thankful we are for all they do! Happy Thanksgiving!Ingredients

Thanks Sweeties!

Those who know us well, know that we are two of the biggest rule followers you will find. However, come Halloween we tend to break a few rules. And the biggest no-no we commit is stealing. Stealing candy from our kids, that is. If it were acceptable for adults to trick-or-treat, we would be at every neighbor’s door. Instead we have to rely our on children to bring home the goodies. This Saturday we using these goodies to create Candy Bar Mini Bundt Cakes. And of course we will pay it forward and share with our loved ones. Just don’t tell them where the candy bars came from! 😉
