I made these for a bake sale this past weekend and they were a big hit! I printed out the recipe on little cards and gave it away to everyone that bought some.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick cooking rolled oats
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups butter softened
1 cup caramel ice cream topping
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 pkg (300gr) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
Keep refrigerated, but take out at least a half an hour before serving.
I hosted a birthday party on the weekend and I had a whole bunch of raw cauliflower left that I didn't end up needing for the veggie trays. I also had a big brick of marble cheese left over. I hate to waste food, so I thought I would whip up something that combined the two ingredients and this is what I came up with. It was really tasty and went well with the steak I cooked.
Makes 6 servings, 5 PP per serving if made according to the recipe. (if you switch to light butter and 1% milk, it will be 4 PP per serving)
4 oz reduced fat grated cheese (I used marble, but cheddar is also good for a sharper taste)
1 to 2 more oz reduced fat grated cheese (for topping)
1 head of cauliflower (remove the leaves and cut up into florets)
2 TBSP butter
2 TBSP flour
1 cup whole milk
1 dash of salt
1 dash of black pepper
1 pinch of grated nutmeg
1 box of vanilla or yellow cake mix
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 TBSP water
1 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 box German Chocolate cake mix (unprepared)
3/4 cup of butter, melted (1 1/2 sticks)
2/3 cup evaporated milk (the smaller can works fine, it's just about 2/3 cup)
Bag of caramels (about 40)
Chocolate chips (small bag works, or approx. 3 handfuls)
Nuts if you like them (I used toasted pecans, about 1/2 cup)
Be careful taking it out of the oven because they are heavy and foil pans need support underneath. You can slide the pan onto a cookie sheet for easier removal from oven.
Let them cool off well before attempting to cut them. They can be eaten sooner, you just would need a spoon if they are still too warm. (A little bit of french vanilla ice cream goes well with the still warm brownie!)

I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
