Homemade Apricot and Dark Chocolate Granola Bars

Posted by on Sep 29, 2010 in Chocolate, Fruit, Other Desserts | 1 comment

I’ve made way too much cake and chocolate the last few days! I thought that some granola bars would provide some relief. They’re very versatile and any dried fruit or nut can be added. I really really like these. Moist and chewy and the corner pieces have a nice little crunch!

I didn’t make my granola bars super thick. For a big thick bar double the recipe and cook 10 minutes longer. If you make these comment below on what fruit and nut combo you’ve used.

I tried making something new last week (the baklava) so I let Alex pick something for this weekend. He picked a simple one layer chocolate cake with a raspberry liquor cream and chocolate topping.

I started blogging 7 months ago today! I’m not sure where all the time has gone but I’m sure glad that people read my blog. I appreciate every comment and email. I love reading all of them! So please email me recipes that you think I might like or comment on what I’ve posted. I’d also love to hear from you if you’ve made something from the blog and let me know how it turns out. I wanted to take time out and say thank you to everyone.

Homemade Dark Chocolate Salty Peanut Butter Cups

I’ve been dying to make these since I came back from the US. I bought a bunch of candy and chocolate molds at Hobby Lobby. There are a lot of things you can put in a cup mold but I had to do peanut butter first! I used dark chocolate and made a salty peanut butter filling so it wasn’t too much an imitation Reese’s.

Cake Truffles

I made cake truffles today. I wasn’t going to put them on the blog (so I didn’t really take any pictures) but Alex insisted. The easiest thing to make and assemble and it’s his favorite. It’s also a great way to show off sprinkles. It’s September now so I used my autumn leaf sprinkles and orange and yellow sparkle gels.
