Preheat oven to 350; smoosh 1.5 squares of break-apart refrigerated cookie dough into the bottom of each well. place reese cup upside down on top of cookie dough (or an oreo!). top with prepared box brownie mix, filling 3/4 full. bake for 18 minutes! heaven.
enough pretzel sticks to just cover the bottom of an 8 X 8 pan
30 or so caramels (I use Kraft caramels)
1 Tbsp cream (or whole milk)
1 1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 – 2 cups mini M & M’s
Line an 8 X 8 inch pan with parchment paper. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
Spread out a layer of pretzel sticks, enough to cover the bottom of the prepared pan.
In a small, microwave safe bowl, stir caramels with the cream and heat, in 15 – 20 second intervals in the microwave, stirring until smooth.
Carefully spread the caramel on top of the pretzels.
In a small, microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate chips in microwave, stirring after every 10 – 15 seconds or so until smooth. (Be careful not to overheat or chocolate will seize.)
Spread over caramel layer.
Sprinkle with mini M & M’s and lightly press into chocolate. (I put 1 to 2 cups of mini M & M’s because you can use as many or as little as you want.)
Chill in fridge until solid, about an hour or two.
You can either cut it with a knife dipped in hot water OR simply break up with your hands.
A couple of good things about this recipe:
1. No oven involved (yay!)
2. Sooooooo easy
3. So so so tasty
4. You can use what you have on hand and sub out the ingredients. ie: don’t have pretzel sticks? Break up the bendy pretzels or use chopped nuts. Don’t have chocolate chips? use a chopped up chocolate bar. Don’t have mini M&M’s? Use any candy or nuts you have. The only thing you really need to have is the caramels BUT, if you are so inclined, you can make your own.
Seeeeeeee…you can still have yummy treats without completely melting in the heat.
Who doesn’t love a Marshmallow Peep?
I don’t know about other mortals, but in my experience heavy, heavy rainfalls tend to dissipate rapidly. One moment it’s sunshine; then, rather suddenly, the world goes dark and the sky weeps in torrential downpours. Following that, in a just as sudden instant, the sky clears and there’ll be an untainted canvas of clear blue sky. The rain would seem to have never even occurred but for the typically large puddles that so rapidly accumulated in those brief moments.
Similarly, Wrigley’s Key Lime gum will blast and pelt you with an explosion of flavor for a short burst of time, but will quickly fade and leave you with only a memory. That, and some near-tasteless gum which, I must admit, has quite a few irritating properties. To begin-that explosion of flavor will stagger you. That key lime pie flavor is exactly what one’d look for when searching for a…well, key lime pie flavored gum. That element of lime is definitely present, and it’s backed by a creamy flavor very reminiscent of the real pie, which one may not expect from gum. Where this gum fails, however, is in duration. The initial flavor takes a handful of moments to wear itself out, unlike many other gums.
The texture is another flaw in this gum. At first, there’s a creamy composition to be discovered and greatly enjoyed, but with every bite it gets harder…and harder…and harder, until you’re almost afraid it’ll become sentient and begin to forcibly rip out your teeth from their place.
As a whole, this gum does fulfill its place as a dessert-style candy, especially as it exceeds all expectations in the key lime pie flavor department. It’s also well worth noting that this product is sugar-free. If you decide to give it a shot, keep the aforementioned benefits and drawbacks in mind!
