Chocolate Covered Rolo Stuffed Ritz Crackers…top that!

Crunchy, sweet, soft, chewy, salty, rich and buttery…. is there anything else you could need or want? I saw this sweet snack on this awesome blog. And just could not resist. Why isn’t this recipe on the box of crackers under ‘recipe ideas’?

It’s too easy, and too good to avoid, so don’t (avoid it I mean).


Ingredients:

  • a bunch of Ritz Crackers
  • a bunch of Rolos Candies (about half as many as you have crackers)
  • about a cup or so of chocolate candy melts (you can use white, dark or milk chocolate)

You can Kaylee’s instructions below. Her blog is Couponing & Cooking.

“1.) On a lined baking sheet, place Ritz crakers salted side down and top with an unwrapped Rolo.

2.) Bake at 275 degrees for three minutes.

3.) When they come out of the oven, press another Ritz cracker on top of the Rolos salted side up. Press down enough to form a sandwich but not too hard that the melty Rolo squishes out”

Paleo Protein Bars

Happy April! Happy Spring! It already looks like a beautiful blue sky kind of day and it’s not even 8 am yet!

Now, I’ve told you before that My Guy would prefer to stick to a Paleo diet, so, he’s always sending me online recipes that seem tasty. Things he’d like to try, and knowing I love to cook and bake, I can’t resist the challenge. I think he was expecting these to come out more like a ‘bar’. I think he was expecting something crunchy. Now, I’m not sure if it was the way I cooked it, or, if it was the recipe itself, but, for me these came out a bit cakey. I was actually thrilled with the end result. As, anything that tastes a bit ‘CAKEY’ works for me! I added an apple to the recipe for a bit more sweetness. In my opinion these are a scrumptious breakfast option. So, make them up, let me know if they come out a bit more ‘crunchy’ for you.

Here’s a recipe from a fabulous Paleo website, TGIpaleo

INGREDIENTS-

  • 2 Large Yams, shredded
  • 6 Eggs, beaten
  • 2 T Coconut Flour
  • 2 t Cinnamon
  • 1 t Vanilla
  • 1 t Salt
  • 1 apple, peeled and shredded (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS-

In a large bowl, combine the yams with the eggs, coconut flour, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla.  Press the mixture down into a greased 4.8 QT (15x10x2) baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is browned and there are no liquid bubbles.  Cool completely before cutting into bars.
