Just when I thought my relationship with candy bars had been compromised by (ahem) age, the food blogosphere reminded me this week that there’s nothing wrong with being young at heart. Not only can I still enjoy my childhood faves, I can enjoy them in a more “mature” form. Check out these three amazing recipes that will wrap their sweet little hands around your chocolate-loving heart.
1. Twix Cookies from Life’s Ambrosia
Anything gooey automatically wins a gold star in my heart. These cookies get double gold stars! Slightly melted Twix wrapped in the comfort of a sweet cookie, these little guys are definitely a sweet-tooth’s soulmate.
2. Heath Cheesecake Pie from Stolen Moments Cooking
This recipe is amazing just in the name itself. Heath. Cheesecake. Pie. Wow! Other than serving it with a stack of hundred dollar bills, I don’t think it could get any better than this.
3. Mounds Bars Candy from Lana’s Cooking
The thing that I love about this recipe (besides being one of my serious childhood favorites) is that you can scale them to whatever size you want. So if you’re looking for a platter of bars or bite-sized proportions for a larger crowd, this recipe will deliver!
