Dessert Round Up

My Google Reader is always filled up with posts from blogs that I enjoy reading when I get some free time. Sometimes I get a chance to check out the blogs a few days a week, sometimes it’s once in a few weeks. But no matter what, I eventually get to see the yummy concoctions that people come up with. I just wish I could be their taste tester because it always looks so decadent. Here are 3 recipes that I found that look absolutely amazing!

Cookies & Cups  always has amazing recipes. I came across Peanut Butter Cup Fluffernutter Blondies and caught myself with my tongue hanging out. How delicious do they sound!? I love Peanut Butter Cups and I don’t think I’ve ever met a blondie that I don’t like!

My guy isn’t into Peanut Butter like that (he’ll only eat Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups) so I will have to find an occasion to make these bad boys. Move over Cookie Exchange! Wouldn’t these be great for a Dessert Swap?!

If you’re looking for a dessert to take to Thanksgiving dinner, I found just the one for you.  How about Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars from sticky gooey creamy chewy? I don’t think I’ve run into anything from that blog that doesn’t look drool-worthy!  We’re staying at home for Thanksgiving, so I don’t need to take a dessert anywhere. But if I did, this would be it. My guy (what’s wrong with him?! lol) doesn’t like Pumpkin Cheesecake,  so I can’t make these for our dessert. But you can bet I’m looking for an excuse to make these though.

When I laid my eyes on the Caramel Cashew  Bars that My Baking Addiction guest posted on I Am Baker, I immediately thought of my Dad. He loves loves loves cashews. They are his favorite nut and when I get a chance I buy him these candy coated cashews that I found at a Nut Shop on my way to work. I always get him a few bags because I know that they won’t last long at all.

I had a bad experience years ago melting down caramel candies (I have a burnt mess in my favorite pyrex glass measuring cup!), and I haven’t tackled that since. But I think I’m going to have to put that all behind me and give it a try again, because these bars look amazing. And I know that my Dad would love it if I made these and took them over to my parent’s house. My guy doesn’t like nuts (do you notice how all of these recipes I’ve posted about are things he doesn’t like? lol) so these would be perfect to make, eat one, and take the rest to Dad! Because I (well my waistline!) would not want to be stuck with an entire pan of these at home.
