Chocolate Coconut Five Layer Bars

Did I mention that while my Mom was visiting we made primarily sweet treats!

I am pretty sure the house smelled like a chocolate factory while we were baking up a storm. The neighbors were not upset when I handed out sweet treats for days.

We made Salty and Sweet Ruffles Marshmallow Treats and these Chocolate Coconut Five Layer Bars in the same night.

These Chocolate Coconut Layer Bars are delightful!

Salty and Sweet Ruffles Marshmallow Treats

I love when my parents come to visit. They live on the other side of the state so we do not get to see them as often as we would like.

This trip my Mom showed up with a pile of recipe ideas. I had forewarned her that I was looking forward to having her in the kitchen with me.

She came prepared! The first recipe she wanted to make was Salty and Sweet Ruffles Marshmallow Treats.

I have to admit I thought she had lost her mind. Don’t get me wrong I love marshmallow treats but making them with potato chips had never even crossed my mind.

She told me that she was sure the sweet and salty combination would be absolutely amazing. This from a woman who LOVES potato chips!

Who am I to tell my Mom no and that she is crazy….I might have thought it a few times but I tried to hold it back for the most part :-)

Ruffles Marshmallow Treats

I hate to admit it in writing but my Mom was right…yes Mom you can totally print that and show it to me every time I disagree with you :-)…

Super easy to make Nutella Mug Cake Recipe

Hi! Today I am excited to share with you a super easy Nutella Mug Cake Recipe!

BUT first I wanted to thank you for your patience over the past few weeks. Many of you have reached out worried that there have not been as many recipes posted the past few weeks. I wanted to let you know what what I have been doing and why the posts were a bit random.

Over the past few weeks I have been deep cleaning the blog. When I started Tammilee Tips almost 5 years ago I had no clue what I was doing and just started typing. Over the past 5 years I have learned a ton and wanted to make sure that the blog reflected this. I cleaned out over 9,000 blog posts that don’t matter today!

I want to make sure that when you search the blog, click on a link or try and find something you find exactly what you are looking for. I hope that you enjoy the update and please know that posts will be coming a lot more often this month.

I am still doing a bit of clean up but I have done the majority of the crazy clean up and now it is all about refinement.

OK, Now that we are caught up to date on life and the joys of cleaning out 9,000 blog posts……there was a lot of chai tea and late nights involved in this….Let’s chat about today’s amazing recipe for Nutella Mug Cake!

First let me say HELLO YUM! This Nutella Mug Cake Recipe makes enough for 2 people if you feel like sharing.

I would not hold it against you if you hoarded all of the Nutella Mug Cake for yourself while curled up on the couch basking in the Spring sunshine!

This recipe comes from the amazing 250 Best Meals in a Mug: Delicious Homemade Microwave Meals in Minutes Cookbook! I am totally madly deeply in love with this cookbook!

I have been trying so many recipes that I can’t wait to share with everyone over the upcoming weeks.

There are so many things I love about this Nutella Mug Cake Recipe!  It only takes a few minutes to prepare and cook…which means I get yummy Nutella goodness in less than 5 minutes…

Super Cute Easter Fudge, Pink Lemonade Fudge and Key Lime Fudge

Can you believe it is already April!

Wow! I feel like this year is flying by at warp speed! I read a book recently that said that the days are long and the years are short. I am definitely feeling that way this year. I keep reminding myself to stop and smell the roses.

One of my goals this year is to make more holiday inspired desserts and treats. For Easter I made these super cute Easter Fudge bars! I couldn’t stop at just one flavor so I made Pink Lemonade Fudge and Key Lime Fudge.

This is the first time I have ever used a Spring Bark Mold or really any mold for fudge. I wasn’t sure if they were going to turn out how I hoped they would. I am so happy with how they turned out that now I keep thinking of more things to make with the cute mold.

Are you ready to see the cute Easter fudge I came up with….

Here is how I made the Super Cute Easter Fudge….

Crock Pot Chocolate Chip Cookies

You all know we love our Crock Pot!

It is my favorite appliance in our kitchen! Today I am so excited to share what I think may be our best Crock Pot Recipe yet!

These Crock Pot Chocolate Chip Cookies are delicious!

I think they are quite possibly the best crock pot dessert we have made! They rank right up their with Crock Pot Monkey Bread, Crock Pot Cherry Dump Cake and Crock Pot 7 Layer Bars!

Here’s the best part……they are super easy to make!

My Dad keeps teasing me that I post about super easy recipes all the time and I need to find a new term other than super easy….any suggestions?

Maybe quick and simple or ??? Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

I would hate for my dear Dad to think that I am typing the same thing day in and day out.  Yes Dad, I can totally see you shaking your head right now as you read this :-)

Ok, back to the amazing Crock Pot Chocolate Chip Cookies…..

Seriously! Don’t these Crock Pot Chocolate Chip Cookies look delicious!…

Guinness Chocolate Balls

I am really torn with this Guinness Chocolate Balls post…..

I almost shared this recipe without any photos but I know you all like to see how the recipes look.

First I have to say these Guinness Chocolate Balls taste amazing! I have made them multiple times over the past few months and each time they turn out fantastic.

BUT they are not very pretty!

There I said it! These Guinness Chocolate Balls taste great but don’t look at pretty as I hoped they would.

I decided to go ahead and share the recipe even though the photos are not what I hoped they would be. Please forgive me for the random photos and know that these Guinness Chocolate Balls taste a lot better than they photographed!

Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies

I have a confession to make….

These Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies were supposed to be for my Sister-In-Law.

Long story short my poor Sister-In-Law literally broke her leg to get a job. She was going to an interview and tripped and broke her ankle en-route to the interview.

I decided to make these Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies for the care package I planned on sending her.

This was a great, fantastic idea until my dear Husband came home and sampled a cookie. Let’s just say they were gone before they had a chance to make it in the care package.

So Bev if you are reading this I owe you some Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies! I am going to have to make them on a day that John is not near the house.

One great thing is that there is no question these cookies are absolutely amazing!

The combination of bacon and peanut butter is divine!

Crock Pot 7 Layer Bars

Oh MY! That is how I would describe these Crock Pot 7 Layer Bars!

Seriously amazing! The perfect combination of chocolate, butterscotch, coconut, pecans and more!

I am so excited I finally found a loaf pan that will fit in my crock pot. I have been trying for months to find one that fits and randomly cleaning out a cabinet I found a loaf pan stuck in the far back of a cabinet.

Now I can share some amazing bread and layered bar recipes from the crock pot. I am going to fully admit to doing a little dance in the kitchen in excitement.

These Crock Pot 7 Layer Bars are my first of hopefully many recipes made with the loaf pan inside the crock pot.

John told me after trying these that he wasn’t sure I could top them. I am taking that as a challenge to see what else can be made!

Crock Pot 7 layer bars

Any suggestions on what else I should make in the crock pot with the loaf pan? Do you have any recipes you love?…
