I made some yummy cupcakes last week...chocolate with cream cheese frosting and a caramel swirl. Since I'm just loving my new camera, you can see the step by step process...Lucky you *wink wink* :)

Start by making just your favorite basic chocolate cupcake(I cheated this time and used a box mix, but it sure didn't taste like it)...

Bake according to the recipe and let cool.

I made a cream cheese frosting and got it from "How to Eat a Cupcake" here(I love her blog).

It was so yummy.

Next, frost cooled cupcakes. I used a pastry bag with a decorators tip but you can just use a ziploc bag with the end cut off.
Then I just made up my own idea for the drizzled caramel. I melted some caramels with a little but of whipped cream to make them smoother.

Then drizzle the melted caramel on top of your frosting. Be prepared for a sticky mess!

And the finished product...

Yum Yum. I made the s'more bars yesterday that I have been wanting to make for weeks! I think I would definitely use more marshmallow fluff next time, I could hardly taste it with this batch. I found the recipe here. The girl that writes this blog is so talented! I will definitely use more recipes in the future. Here is the link to the recipe...

Peanut Butter Cup cookies in SC :)

Posted by Jamie at 6:14 PM 1 comments
I think my favorite area of our new house is the I of course couldn't wait to bake something! I have been dying to make s'more bars but when I consulted my hubby, he said, "No thanks, I won't eat those." So I stuck to something simple, cookies.

Got these at the grocery store today, I've never seen them so I figured it would be yummy to have a reeses cup cookie. I wasn't in the mood to research a recipe so I just used the one on the back of the bag.
They turned out, hmmm, just fine. Nothing great, but not bad either. I couldn't taste the full effect of the peanut butter cup, more just like a chocolate chip cookie.

Next baking session will be the s'more bars! I am hoping to have memories of campfires on Burntside Lake with these bars! haha..

Who doesn't love an oreo? I mean seriously....anything cookies and cream goes over well in any crowd!

I made these cookie and cream cupcakes last weekend for our friends going-away party. There's an oreo cookie on the bottom, mixed in to the batter, and then in the whipped frosting. :)Got milk?
