Sweet & Salty

Have you tried the Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino from Starbucks?

It's not often that I splurge on coffee drinks, but when I saw it, I knew I had to try it. And I did. And it was amazing. If you're a salty/sweet combo lover, this is the drink for you. I savored every last sip, and was a little sad when it was all gone.

Since then, I've been craving that salted caramel taste, so when I came across this recipe, I went right out & bought the ingredients. [I made mine in a 9x13 pan as opposed to jars]

It was so hard waiting for the brownies to bake, for the icing to set.
Ugh! But the time finally came for me to try one, and they lived up to my every expectation. These things are so wonderfully delicious. Definitely a guilty pleasure.

If you're looking for a new dessert to try this week, give this one a go. It's so good & super easy to make!

I tried a packet of Starbucks' Via Caramel this morning (the packets that you just add to hot water) and I might be addicted. Too bad they're so expensive. Also, you seriously need to join pinterest, I just pinned a recipe for salted caramel frosting the other day. AND I need to know the email address you use for the Nook b/c I am determined to learn how we can share books. Mostly I've just been finding free or super cheap ones so far though.

Sorry this was super random!!
