Brown Sugar Cinnamon Scones with Maple Glaze

I made these delicious scones twice already because they go FAST. They are so fluffy and perfect with coffee. If you don't want them as sweet, skip the glaze and the cinnamon sugar on top before baking. They truly are amazing without the glaze as well. 


2 1/4 cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup salted butter

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk or cream

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Maple Glaze

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 tbsp. maple syrup

1/2 tbsp. cream or milk

Mix eggs, cream/milk, vanilla, and brown sugar. In another bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until you have a crumb mixture. Male a well in the center and add the egg mixture. Mix until just combined. On a floured surface, knead mixture and create a circle. Cut into 8 or 16 triangles (depending on how big you want them - I usually do 16). Separate on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top then bake at 375 degrees for abut 12 minutes. 

Let cool then spread glaze over the top. Store in refrigerator. These are also delicious without the glaze, but they are divine with it!

Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bars

I recently tried out this new recipe and I have to say... they are DELICIOUS. I feel like I always say that on here, but there are fails as well, I just don't share them! This is definitely one I will make again. The best part it how EASY they are to make. See ingredients and directions below.


12 oz. package dark chocolate chips 

8 oz. mini pretzels (half of a regular 16 oz. bag) 

11 oz. bag Kraft Caramels (or homemade caramel)

Sea salt


Line baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat

Melt 8 ounces of chocolate (if using the microwave heat on 50% power stirring every 15-30 seconds).

 Melt caramels in a separate bowl (add 2 tbsp. water and heat on high in microwave)

Spread chocolate evenly and add pretzels on top then add caramel. Drizzle caramel on top.

Melt remaining chocolate and drizzle on top. Add sea salt.
