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 »

Cookies n’ Cream Brownies

Cookies n' Cream Brownies

Whenever I want to dress up a batch of brownies, I don’t turn to chocolate ganache or fancy chocolate chips. I turn to a big bag of cream filled, Oreo-type sandwich cookies, chop them up and add them to my brownie batter. I suppose that this is actually dressing down the brownies, rather than dressing them up, but Oreo cookies make a fantastic addition to ... Read More »

The same holds true for lime bars, which are simply a variation on lemon bars that feature limes, rather than lemons. This lime bar recipe uses a lot ... Read More »

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies

Chocolate and mint is a good combination, with the dark notes of the cocoa balanced out with the bright flavor of the mint. I didn’t realize what a good combination brownies and mint were until I made Peppermint Cookies n’ Cream Brownies, a brownie recipe that incorporates peppermint Oreo-type cookies, and realized that it is possible to pack a lot of both chocolate and peppermint ...

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Sometimes, red velvet cakes are known more for their brilliant coloring than they are for their flavor because it is easier to simply make the cake look fancy than put together a great recipe. Flavor is unquestionably the most important thing for a baked good to have, but it sure doesn’t hurt to have a “wow” factor on top of that. These Red Velvet Cheesecake ... Read More »

Cranberry Swirl Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Cranberry Pecan Bars

I have to say that these Cranberry Swirl Pumpkin Bars are just about as perfect a dessert as you can get for Thanksgiving without baking a pie. They’re certainly appropriate for fans of pumpkin, cranberries and cream cheese frosting on other occasions, as well, but they really encompass the spirit of Thanksgiving by using so many favorite foods from that holiday. The pumpkin bars are ... Read More »
