Caramel Cheesecake Bars

Caramel Cheesecake BarsThese Caramel Cheesecake Bars have a yummy gooey caramel topping, a delicious cheesecake filling and a sweet graham cracker crust. I took the caramel cheesecake bars to a luncheon get together and everyone who tried it said it tasted delicious. The caramel kept dripping off each bar of cheesecake as I took it from the pan and placed it onto a plate. It was quite the challenge to get good pictures of the bars because of the gooey caramel, but it was worth making this sweet treat. I ate more bars than I should have because they were so good. This is a recipe you’ll want to make, so be sure to save it and pin it for later!

One kitchen item I wish I would have had while I was making the caramel was a candy thermometer. Because then I would have known exactly when the caramel reached the temperature of 225 degrees F. But since I didn’t have a candy thermometer, once I thought the caramel had boiled long enough I would drop a small amount of it in cool water to see if it would form a ball. The caramel still turned out being delicious.

Homemade Apple Pie Filling

Homemade Apple Pie Filling Bottled I love the smell of a fresh apple pie cooking in the oven when the weather is turning cooler outside. And I especially love making this homemade Apple Pie Filling because once it’s completed it’s so easy to put an apple pie in the oven within minutes.

When making this recipe, I used to peel, core and cut all of my apples using a knife, but I finally invested in a Johnny Apple Peeler. I wish I would have purchased it years ago because it would have saved me so much time! It peels, cores and slices the apples and really makes the process of adding the apples to the jars so much faster. And my little ones love helping me use the apple peeler. It’s a good product you’ll want to look into having if you plan to make homemade apple pie every year.

Peppermint Oreo Truffles

Peppermint Oreo Truffles Christmas Holiday

I made these Peppermint Oreo Truffles for my family and they are yummy and chocolatey. I especially love the peppermint flavor when I bite into the truffle because I think of the holidays. What I also love about the truffles is that they only take four ingredients to make them. I had three of the four ingredients in my pantry, and only had to pick up the almond bark during one of my grocery shopping trips.

 

Peppermint Oreo Truffles

For the outside of the truffle, I chose to use almond bark but you could use a chocolate bar. You could even do half and half and make some truffles with white chocolate and some with chocolate.

Wrap up a handful of these truffles in a cellophane bag and add a tag and bow to make a sweet treat for neighbors and friends for the holidays. Here’s how to make the holiday Peppermint Oreo Truffles:
