Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies, ready to serve

Cheesecake swirled brownies are one of my favorite types of brownies. That isn’t to say that a fudgy, rich chocolaty brownie can’t stand on its own – but there is something special about it when it is topped off with a layer of creamy cheesecake. Cream cheese adds a slightly tangy note to the dessert that makes the brownies seem even darker and more chocolatey ... Read More »

Chewy Walnut, Ginger and Toffee Blondies

Walnut Blondies

Blondies are a great everyday treat to bake. They’re just as easy to make as a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but take much less time because they’re baked in a pan and sliced later, rather than being baked off one by one in multiple batches. The bar cookies also invite experimentation, because there are many flavors that go well in the chewy cookie base. ... Read More »

Fig Crumble Bars

Fig Crumble Bars

I always liked Fig Newtons, but I find that many people like the filling and are a bit bored by the plain cake that surrounds it.

Butterscotch and Walnut Blondies

Butterscotch Walnut Blondies

Butterscotch may conjure up images of hard, toffee-like candies, but the building blocks of butterscotch are just brown sugar, butter and vanilla and it is easy to infuse a butterscotch flavor into many different recipes by using these elements. These Butterscotch and Walnut Blondies are a perfect example. The blondies use a generous amount of brown sugar that melds well with the flavor of the ... Read More »

Perfect Lemon Bars

Perfect Lemon Bars

This is a lemon bar recipe for lemon lovers. It has a filling that is nice and thick, a great lemon flavor and a beautiful silky texture. The lemon custard is sitting on top of a layer of tender shortbread crust that is thick enough to hold up to it without getting soggy, even if you are planning to take the bars to a picnic ...

White Chocolate Coconut Revel Bars

White Chocolate Coconut Revel Bars

Fudgy, rich tasting Chocolate Revel Bars are bound to be a hit with chocolate lovers – and have been with everyone I’ve served them to. But I like white chocolate just as much as dark chocolate, so I decided to work out a white chocolate variation of the chocolate-filled bar cookie. While the original Revel Bars have layers of oatmeal cookie dough sandwiching a chocolate ... Read More »

Chocolate Revel Bars

Chocolate Revel Bars

Brownies are the most common chocolate bar cookie out there, and unless you’re throwing chocolate chips into some cookie dough that you’re going to bake into bar cookies, you’re probably going to turn to baking a batch of brownies when you’re looking for a chocolate baked good fix in bar form. I say “probably” because a batch of Chocolate Revel Bars should be right up ... Read More »
