This blog is a culmination of two forever-bakers who have spent countless hours reading about, thinking about, and dreaming about baking delicious treats in our spare time. After taking a few cake decorating classes, our interest has soared to no end. While living and working in the same city has been a sweet treat in itself, a move across the state has spawned the desire to keep in touch by taking our love of baking and everything kitchen to the next level. So wipe your feet on the mat and stay awhile!

Caramel Crunch Bars

Anyone else feeling like the holidays are really just an excuse to eat anything and everything in sight with no shame? I sure hope somebody else out there is shaking their head yes in response to that..... Regardless, with time off from work it definitely means our kitchen is busier than normal and I wouldn't have it any other way (my hips probably would though...).

These Caramel Crunch Bars by the one and only Dorie Greenspan (you need this book) have a crumbly shortbread base with chocolate and heath chunks on top. I was a little concerned by the combination of cinnamon, chocolate, and coffee in the shortbread, but one thing I've yet to learn is to just go with what Dorie says. These aren't the most glamorous or fancy or earth-shattering, but they are simple and delicious with a cup of coffee as you think about how you will definitely shed those 30 pounds this year.... Here is a link to the full recipe, enjoy!

These look delish! I'll have to look these up in my book and ear mark the recipe.
