Hello, chocolate salted caramel cookies, you little molten bites of salty caramel deliciousness. No, I didn't come up with the recipe. I like to think I have a knack for recognizing a good recipe that is above and beyond a "normal" recipe. I actually bought some caramels to make these cookies, and upon further investigation, realized that I needed to MAKE the caramel. Um, not a good project for the impatient. In fact, I almost burnt the caramel because I got bored and turned up the heat, but I saved it just in time. So it might be more like burnt fluer del sel caramel, but still tasty. Wrapped in chocolate joy. If I were to make them again (unlikely to be anytime soon given the amount of projects I have on my hands) - I would make half the caramel recipe, as I did, but double the cookie recipe. I don't think they are actually supposed to crack open and ooze out the caramel but honestly I don't care that much. But it was definitely too much caramel for the amount of dough. One came out perfect...I probs forgot to put caramel in that one! The verdict: DELICIOUS.

And up next, Bacon Apple Jalapeno (said properly as Ja-La-Pen-O) Pop 'Ems. Saw it on Food Network and wanted them instantly because they are wrapped in bacon and most things SHOULD be wrapped in bacon. Then, as a tribute to the first commentor on this page, I thought they'd be a nice treat for a party I'm going to tonight. So Happy Birthday, Adam, and thanks for being the first comment. I promise much more bacon out of this kitchen. I hope you like them because I find them particularly tasty!
Bacon is good. Click here for the recipe.
This picture is mid-baking, but I had a few that finished earlier but I ate them before I could get a picture. Look at that bacon sizzle! Mmm. Bacon.
More to come tomorrow, I've got two more recipes I plan on trying out so I can make dinner for a friend and make a birthday treat for a coworker. Then I might have to take a break and eat all this crap I've made, or live off oatmeal because I've spent more at the grocery store this week than a normal person needs to spend in a month!
