Today is my birthday dananananana happy birthday to me danananananana. To celebrate my birthday, I made a really chocolatey, delicious FOUR LAYER cake. Because that’s how I rollll.
I felt like last year I was SO behind on the pumpkin train. By the time I was ready to make pumpkiny things, it was Thanskgiving and I had like one day to make them all happen. Needless to say, I missed the boat. Ok, two transportation references in one paragraph? My mom brain is filled with trucks and diggers and planes and trains.
Holy smokes this caramel changed muh lifeee. Here’s my deal. I really like caramel. When I was young, one of my favorite after school snacks was cut up apples and those little single serve caramel.
Traditional peanut butter cups are totally my jam. I love them. I love them too much. I wanted to make a paleo-friendly version and when I put these up on my Instagram last week, SO many of you asked for the recipe. I decided that they needed to be a permanent blog post because they were THAT good.
I remember the first time I had a “turtle.” I remember being a hardcore candy bar fan and being taken aback by the unexpected deliciousness of these unknown little mounds of tasty. Chocolate outer with gooey caramel center? Extra bonus points for that nutty crunch? Why did nobody tell me?!
