3 years ago, if you had told me there’d come a time when I’d be making butterscotch cookie bars at home, I’d have laughed at you. But here I am today, gloriously writing a recipe for the same. I have to thank this blog for my culinary experiments. These butterscotch flavored cookie bars are just so darn easy, that I wonder why it took me so long to discover the recipe. Brown Sugar is the miracle ingredient that makes these bars delicious!

This was the first time I tried (to bake AND eat) cookie bars and I was mildly surprised by how much I enjoyed these sweet treats. They are a cross between cookies and brownies. They taste like those classic, somewhat soft, somewhat chewy cookies. The great thing about these bars is that – unlike cookies – you don’t have to roll them out and make individual cookies. You dump the entire dough in a pan, bake and then slice into bars.

Use the basic dough to spruce up your own cookie bars. I like to add marshmallows, chocolates, nuts and even crushed graham crackers for texture and flavor. You can do whatever you like! Make this your own.

As usual, the year flew by and I didn’t even realize how soon 2016 came knocking on my door. I’m quite emotional as I write the first post of 2016.

2015 was rough. Don’t get me wrong. There were quite a few wins – personally and professionally. And I am incredibly grateful for that. However, it has definitely not been a smooth sail. 2015 was rife with uncertainties, chronic fevers, stress and multiple situations that I like to describe as bubbles-being-burst. But I’m not one to dwell on the past. Every bit of the journey has been worthwhile. I am glad to have not lost my mojo, and I’m excited to get a fresh start.

Yes. 2016 – for this blog – will be year of loads of fantastic (and easy!) recipes. And I’m starting off the year of fantastic food with these decadent Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes.  (more…)

Thick and fudgy brownies layered with a sweet mint frosting and a glossy chocolate ganache.

This is what a “grown-up” dessert must look like. Mint wasn’t really my thing for a very long time. Let’s face it, it is intense, sometimes pungent and not really… chocolate. But my tastes are maturing as I grow up. Mint is definitely one of those grown up flavors that I’ve grown to love.

Mint and Chocolate is a classic combination. You’ll find variations of this recipe all over the internet. But this is maybe the only “eggless” mint chocolate brownies’ recipe you’ll find. And I promise, you will love these!

Hershey’s Kisses have got to be the cutest candies ever invented. Not only do they taste amazing (I mean, hello? That burst of chocolate in your mouth? Yauza!), but they also effortlessly add a certain cuteness to an dessert they are a part of. For lazy people like me, this is great because we don’t have to spend hours stressing over dessert-decorations!

Inspired from these intensely-chocolaty candies, I decided to make some cupcakes that will knock your socks off! With a basic chocolate cupcake base, I take it up a notch by stuffing each cupcake with a Hershey’s kiss. And then I frost them with an amazing frosting I discovered accidentally. Yep – have you tried combining buttercream and marshmallows and chocolate? You’ve got to do it right now – if you haven’t already!

The best part is that you really don’t need to stress yourself too much. You’re going to enjoy making these cupcakes – just as much as you’re going to enjoy devouring them!    (more…)
