Right here with this fantastic Dulce de Leche. Everything is right with the world when you know you’ve got the secret weapon to make the most magical milk-based treats ever!

Are you with me? Or are you in an imaginary world where you are the King / Queen and a cup of this golden liquid is presented to you to be devoured by your Majesty?

If yes, just hold on a little while longer my kings & queens. Because as delicious as condensed milk is as is… you are yet to experience a more intense kind of deliciousness that mankind has to offer. Give me 1 can of condensed milk, a pressure cooker, some water and 40 minutes. That’s all. And I’ll make you a more awesome (if not awesomely awesome!) treat that you will cherish forever!

And that, of course, is a treat fit for all you amazing Kings and Queens!    (more…)

There there. Can you really blame me for this masterpiece? After my love affair with Kinder, this was inevitable. Kit Kat bars in a cupcake? Uh.. YES PLEASE!

Kit Kat chocolates are a favorite among kids and adults alike. And why shouldn’t they be? The subtle sweetness from the milk chocolate, combined with the crunchiness of the wafers, makes Kit Kat one of the best sweet treats available in the market today. Using candies and chocolates to a basic cupcake recipe can yield wonderful results. You’ll need basic ingredients to make the cupcake itself. This recipe is also perfect for vegetarians who don’t eat eggs. You’ll never miss the eggs, trust me! These are moist, buttery and uber-delicious! They also were the perfect recipe to start my association with the Parade community 🙂

Yes, you read that right. I’m writing for Parade now and I’m so excited to share my love for food with even more people! You can check out more of my content here.     (more…)

Chocolate Toffee Brittle Recipe step by step from scratch | Nutty Dark Chocolate Caramel Candy | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of www.Foodomania.com

Chocolate is so often the source of such simple pleasures… This brittle candy is no exception. Caramel-y, chocolaty, chewy and festive, with a nutty crunch; they’re tasty, sure — but perhaps what these toffees really have going for them is their ease of preparation. I never thought ‘I’d’ be making toffee.. It’s just too much technique and that ain’t my style. But a recipe inspiration and excess of brown sugar in my pantry finally triggered the inner candy-Goddess in me and lo & behold – a simple concoction of chocolate & toffee right here for you! 😉

A handful of ingredients, a baking pan and 20 minutes is all you need to make these beauties. Ready? Go.
