Yeah, I lived to bake another day…..there were three of us in round two and all of us made a recipe using caramel, how funny is that?
I wanted something fun and fall, so I chose caramel pumpkin blondies with walnuts and chocolate. It isn’t the prettiest dessert around, but it is really yummy and fantastic with a cup of coffee in the morning or late afternoon. I found the recipe a few years ago and I have made it several times. I figured it would be easy to travel and who doesn’t like pumpkin!
The other girls made salted caramel whoopie pies and a turtle pie. All three were good, but in the end, only two players could advance to the finals. I made it with the blondies and Lauren made it with her salted caramel whoopie pies. I have to tell you, I think the entire office is going to be sad when this competition comes to an end. It has been fun deciding on what to make, based on who I was up against. I am pulling out the big guns for the last round, so wish me luck!
