Is this not absolutely perfect to serve for a New Year's Eve party? M&M's just kind of scream party - and creamy cheesecake is always well received!
The sweet and salty combination of this is right off the charts! A crushed pretzel buttery crust, spread with a thin layer of rich chocolate, and topped with silky, creamy cheesecake that has been studded with M&M's, and piled high with fresh whipped cream and sprinkled with even more M&M's.
This buttery almond cookie filled with delicious apricot, raspberry or your favorite jam, is perfect for a tea party or the holidays!
Truth be told, these are one of my FAVORITE Christmas cookies - I much prefer the delicate shortbread to all of the peanut butter and chocolate cookies that are so loved by everyone else in the family!
This is a wonderful change of pace from a traditional cheesecake - and so easy to make!
The base is your favorite brownie recipe - and topped with a killer filling of cream cheese, sugar, and whipped cream, whipped until fluffy and airy - and then studded with mini-chocolate chips. We typically top this with fresh raspberries or strawberries - but you could drizzle with melted fudge or hot salted caramel sauce if you'd rather.
It used to be that every time we visited Amish country, I would always see homemade Cashew Brittle. It's so good - but so crazy expensive! A small baggie-sized portion sells for almost $5.00! And as much as I had a picture in my mind of a young Amish lass making up batches of this in her farmhouse over an old-fashioned stove, I started thinking that it can't be any harder to make delicious homemade Cashew Brittle than it is to make Peanut Brittle or Pecan Brittle!
And so this was born. It's a method - and in less than ten minutes makes homemade Cashew Brittle that is the absolute best we have ever had!
I realize that this is downright mean...but we are currently in a food coma following the preparation and consumption of the most wonderful Upside-Down Caramel Pecan Apple Pie that you ever did see...
It took a few days, but recipe is perfected and ready to share! I have been making this treat for several decades - but it always disappears too fast before I can get my camera out and ready!
