Caramel Pretzel Brownies

If you love chocolate, caramel, and pretzels mixed together, you'll love these! If you have a good caramel recipe use it; it would sure beat unwrapping all of the caramels! As goes for a great brownie recipe!

The Best Caramel Apples

Rating: Unrated
When I was searching for a recipe to make homemade caramel apples for the very first time, a close friend gave me this amazing and fairly easy recipe. My family and friends loved these delicious treats! Sprinkle with nuts or whatever you desire while the caramel is still warm (work quickly, the caramel sets VERY fast).

Caramelized Maple Apple Pie with Candied Bacon Crumble

The holidays deserve a pie worthy of its occasion. This towering pie is piled high with apples that bathe in a deep maple caramel with a slight tang from cider vinegar. It's topped with a buttery crumble studded with crispy candied bacon. A pie that definitely earns its place at the table.
