Snickers Cookies with Salted Caramel Drizzle

Snickers Cookies with Salted Caramel Drizzle

We have a great fondness for snickers in this house.  We make snickers doughnuts, snickers cupcakes, snickers cake, and now snickers cookies! I figured it was time to level up from plain chocolate chip cookies, and snickers are the perfect combination of chocolate, sweet, salty and nutty. On the other hand, I don’t have a great fondness for cookies made with eggs and baking soda.  I much prefer buttery, soft, more shortbread type cookies than the other kind, so I thought I’d come up with a cookie recipe I love…

Salted Caramel Sauce

Salted Caramel Sauce

Salted Caramel Sauce.  Not only is it one of the most delicious things on the planet, it’s also so handy to have around to pour, dip and scoop. I’m posting this on it’s own so that whenever I post a recipe that uses Salted Caramel, I can link straight back here to this recipe.  I’ve used it recently in an upcoming Snickers Cookie recipe, I frequently use it in buttercream to flavour it, as well as for filling cakes (use an icing dam to stop overflow!) and drizzling on the…

Whipped Salted Caramel Filling

Whipped Salted Caramel Filling

I made this whipped salted caramel filling last week to fill some doughnuts and thought it would be a great one to share for filling and icing cakes.  I’ve doubled the recipe which should give you enough for filling/ decorating an 8″ cake.  You could also keep aside some of the caramel before whipping to drizzle between layers for an extra caramel hit (you can’t melt it after it’s whipped).   Whipped salted caramel filling 1 1/2 cup  sugar 1/2 cup water 1 cup cream 320g butter, cubed Salt to…

Caramel Mud Cake with Salted Caramel

Caramel Mud Cake with Salted Caramel

This cake is DELICIOUS!  You only need a small sliver thanks to the sticky caramel on top. The cake itself is dense and fudgy, but still melt in your mouth.  If you make just one thing on this blog, let it be this! If you want a tall cake, make two and sandwich them together, or double the recipe and bake it in three batches.  It’s better to bake it in smaller layers so you don’t dry it out too much on the outside before the inside is cooked.  I…

Salted Caramel Cookies

Salted Caramel Cookies

A buttery biscuit which serves as a bowl for thick, rich salted caramel?  Don’t mind if I do. These thumbprint style cookies are amazing.  I’ve made them at least twice now, and I think about them often.  The biscuit is my favourite style of cookies, so buttery and soft and it balances perfectly with the caramel.  If you insist, make your own caramel, but it’s much easier and just as delicious to buy it pre-prepared. You can subsitute caramel for any type of filling, ie. jam or curd.  I’ve even…
