Brownie Buckeye Bites // Tried and TastyI’ve been providing healthy recipes all year long and would like to incorporate more gluten-free options for those that have the specific dietary need. I was excited when Krusteaz reached out to me with their new gluten free line of products. You know can get Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Gluten Free Honey Cornbread Mix, Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, AND Gluten Free Blueberry Muffin Mix! With so many great options you have many wonderful recipes right at your fingertips!

I was inspired by my Brownie Buckeye Cupcakes for these adorable little bites! Nothing better than chocolate and peanut butter in my book! If you’ve been around for any length of time, you’ve probably read my love for all things mini! I decided to take the cupcakes in my archive, swap out the regular brownie mix for the Krusteaz Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, and make them in to a mini treat! They were not only delicious – they’re absolutely adorable and way too conveniently poppable! Give them a try! 

Not-So-Guilty Almond Joy Trifle // Tried and TastyI love a good trifle. I also love a good chocolate trifle (i.e. my Chocolate Mint Trifle and my Raspberry Brownie Trifle Recipe). The non-chocolate variety is great as well (i.e. my 5-Ingredient Pineapple Fluff Trifle). So when I was thinking of a great dessert for a large gathering or potluck, of course a layered dessert came to mind. Being in the full swing of summer we’re constantly running to and from BBQ’s, picnics, and get-togethers. The trifle dessert is my favorite dessert to take to feed a crowd. But with me watching what I eat, I wanted a not-so-guilty way to enjoy it!

Raspberry Brownie Trifle Recipe // Tried and TastyA couple of days ago I posted my Raspberry Sugar Cookie Tart recipe in honor of Heart Healthy Month. But I didn’t want to end there, so I figured I’d wrap up the month with one more FABULOUS recipe. The sugar cookies were a pretty big hit, but I may have to say that among my taste testers, this may have been an even bigger hit! There’s just something about raspberries being paired with chocolate. It’s a winning combination that almost everyone will love! I’ve been dying to use my favorite brownie recipe ever since I discovered it a couple of months ago. If you haven’t tried my Toffee & Chocolate Chip Brownies, they are a must!

Raspberry Brownie Trifle Recipe // Tried and Tasty

 I love trifle recipes and any time I get to pull out my trifle bowl is a good time to me. A couple of my favorite recipes are my Chocolate Brownie Trifle and Peanut Butter Trifle. Both are really tasty. The other thing I love about making a trifle dessert is that I have a large trifle bowl that will feed a crowd, but I also have mini trifle bowls that can be used for individual servings. If you know me, or have been around for any of my ‘min’ recipes, you’ve come to learn that I LOVE all things mini. Seriously. I LOVE all things itty-bitty. Anyway, I digress. I’m telling you, if you love raspberries and you love chocolate this recipe is calling your name! 

The Best Toffee & Chocolate Chip Brownies // TriedandTastyA variation of these brownies were brought to work for a potluck recently and I didn’t have any, but everyone raved about them and all wanted the recipe. You know when people are asking for the recipe it’s gotta be good right? So I got the recipe. I decided to make them for a friend Christmas party and added peppermint M&M’s and a cocoa frosting. I cooked them too long, they were too thick, the frosting was too much, and I wasn’t digging the peppermint. So I went back to the drawing board. There had to be a better way (not that the original recipe wasn’t great) and I wasn’t giving up. I love me some brownies. Especially warm out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream and drizzled with hot fudge. Really? Are you drooling right now, because I am! I was bound and determined to use up all of my random baking supplies before the season ended and I had a half-empty package of toffee bits that were screaming to be used. I decided to scrap the M&Ms and frosting and stick with the basics. What was born was the most beautifully rich brownie I’ve ever sunk my teeth in to. There is absolutely NO reason for a boxed brownie mix to EVER be in your pantry ever again. This my friends is THE recipe you need to have. I mean… how can you go wrong with 1 1/2 c. sugar? Ok – in reality there are SO many things wrong with that much sugar in a recipe, but if you only make them once a year you’ll be alright. These are so decadent, so chocolaty, so wonderful. The toffee with the chocolate chips is a combination out of this world.
