YUMMY!!! What more can I say? Our recipe of the week, Black Bottom Brownies, was chosen by Cynthia of Bakingtherapest , check out her blog for the recipe. These went together easily, I used Scharffenberger unsweetened chocolate; I usually won't use expensive chocolate on a new recipe but I just had a hunch this would be a delicious recipe. I wasn't disappointed! The only change I made was using mini chocolate chips instead of regular and I only used 6 ounces; I didn't want too much chocolate competiting with the cheesecake layer. I probably got 24 out of the full recipe; the original recipe indicated 12 servings, I think that would have been calorie/sugar overkill!!! DH said these were very good and will be taking the rest to work tomorrow, get them OUT of my site please. Yes, these were delicious, I liked the contrast between the brownie (nice and fudgy) and cheesecake (creamy, moist) layer; they are even better the next day, according to my DH of course.

Sorry for the late post, I actually made these on Saturday but an invitation for breakfast and a movie, Avatar, got in the way of cutting and wrapping. I have made caramels for years and this was a nice change of flavor, never thought of making chocolate caramels.

This months recipe was chosen by by Karen at Karen's Cookies, Cakes & More and she picked a winner. I used a pan with an indentation on the top to hold the marshmallows; my kitchen torch can be a bit fickle at times and I ended up slightly over doing the marshmallows in a few places but they still tasted great. These were more of a muffin than a cupcake but that's OK with me, I may use this recipe for Christmas brunch. Looking forward to next month's recipe, Gingerbread Cupcakes. I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This has been pumpkin week, I made Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes for the MS:CC on Thursday and used the left over pumpkin for the SMS recipe; I just love using up ingredients. These cookies reminded me of the cupcakes I made last week, spicy, moist and yummy! Easy recipe with no issues.
I make French macrons occasionally and have a "cheat sheet" to make them all the same size; I just put the parchment paper on top, pipe the batter and you have perfect sized cookies. Even the piping tip was the same size! My cookies took the full 15 minutes and I feel they could have used maybe another minute or so. The frosting was a cream cheese based recipe, so I decided to use the left over frosting from the cupcakes; I just added orange zest and orange extract to the frosting and it was very good.
The recipe made 68 cookie halves and DH is taking ALL of them to work tomorrow, they are that good. I need them out of the house, LOL.
