Dark Chocolate-Coated Matzos ~ One with Sea Salt and Crushed Shards of Burnt Caramel and One with Chopped Toasted Slivered Almonds

Chocolaty, salty-caramelly, nutty and crunchy...all here in these luscious and simple to prepare dark chocolate-coated matzos.  You'll have a hard time deciding which of these varieties to make, so you'll probably want to make both! (I like variety, don't you?) They were a big hit during our recent Passover celebration and I'm certain they'll be a big hit with you and yours!

                                            Crunchy with Elegance...
                                          And Crazy Scrumptious!

Dark Chocolate-Coated Peanut Butter Crunchy Bonbons

If it seems that I'm on a bite-sized dessert kick, that's because they make such terrific, well-received food gifts.  After the fall and winter holidays, a slew of our family birthdays begin, with our celebrating most of them in March.

I made these fantastic peanut butter bonbons for my peanut butter-loving son-in-law's recent birthday. Crushed graham crackers provide a delightful surprise crunch to the creamy peanut butter center of these decadent dark chocolate-drenched bonbonsChocolate and peanut butter...just meant to be!

Chocolate-Coated Peanut Butter Cup Pretzel Bites ~ Salty, Chocolaty and Crunchy!

Salty, chocolaty and crunchy, with a surprise of creamy peanut butter, these adorable pretzel bites make an terrific party dessert!  I presented as a Valentine gift this year; however, they'd be well received as a gift any time of the year or as a special treat for your family.  Also, they'd make a wonderful project to do with the children.

Drench these scrumptious pretzel bites with dark or milk chocolate (I prefer dark) and, for a special touch, adorn with your choice of a variety of toppings.  Any way you prefer, you'll love how easy these bites are and they'll love devouring them!

                                            Salty, Chocolaty and Crunchy...
                                           They'll Just Love Them!

Decadent Brownie Bread Pudding with Caramel and Dark Chocolate ~ In The Slow Cooker

Warm and satisfying, this easy decadent brownie bread pudding makes the perfect cold-weather or Super Bowl dessert.  Just imagine, a pool of French bread drenched in rich dark chocolate, caramel and cream with crunchy walnuts!  The sumptuous chocolate flavor is further enhanced with strong, brewed coffee (no need to tell finicky can be our little secret)!

I shared this marvelous pudding at a gathering during the recent holidays, and they loved it!  I just took the cooked pudding in the slow cooker with me to the party and plugged it in when I arrived to keep it warm.  We enjoyed it with large dollops of whipped cream, but it would be wonderful with ice cream too!

                                              Who Knew Heaven...
                                           Could Be So Sinful!

Luscious Pecan Praline Topping Holiday Gifts

This luscious pecan praline topping is so marvelous, it should be canned and gifted!  Show your friends and family how much you appreciate them...there's nothing like the joy of presenting or receiving homemade gifts!

Tie your gift jars with pretty ribbon along with gift tags explaining care and suggested ways to use.  For several ideas to enjoy this decadent topping, see my original post Luscious Pecan Praline Topping ~ "How Do I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Ways".  It's so sinfully delicious, my daughter likes to eat it straight from the jar!
