The Food Dish
This delicious dessert bar won a lion's share of the votes at our recent contest. Meet the second best recipe we found, De Lime in de Coconut Bars.
We're getting close to revealing the winner of our contest, but let's not forget about the delicious dessert that came in as the third favorite: Butterscotch Nutella Bars.
Two finalists down (see our other favorite dessert bar recipes so far); three more finger-licking recipes to go.
This week, meet our voters' third most favorite recipe from the 30+ that we received: Butterscotch Nutella Bars, by Sharon Leigh Painter of Aloha, Oregon.
Nutella. Need we say more? Combined with the slightly nutty flavor of butterscotch and fluff of marshmallow, these were irresistably sweet. The texture was also perfectly flakey. It's no wonder they were so close to receiving the top honor.
Dips are the quintessential party food, and I love everything about them. So I went on a quest to find all the best.
I love dip recipes. There's some sort of harmony in that they're all served in a bowl with some sort of other food that gets dunked into them, but there's so much variety that you can consume a full-course meal in dip form. To satisfy my dip craving, I set out to round up the best of them all. Some of these are twists on old classics, but some are new and exciting recipes you may not have seen before.
We continue to unveil the most delicious dessert bars of all today with another winning recipe: Chocolate Orange Bars, which received the fourth most votes.
Do you think you can handle the deliciousness?
Last week we started to announce the best recipes we came across during our recent Best Dessert Bar Contest with our fourth runner-up: Strawberry Limeade Bars. (See our other favorite dessert bar recipes so far)
Now it's time to get the delicious details on the third runner-up: Chocolate Orange Bars, by Barbara Lee Parsons of Huntsville, Alabama.
We loved the perfectly chewy texture of these bars (just what a bar should be) paired with the perfect balance of sweet chocolate to citrusy orange. The flavors were just a great combination; we couldn't get enough!
Choosing our favorite dessert bars was hard – there were so many delicious options! But we did what had to be done, and now it's time to start meeting the winners. Today: Strawberry Limeade Bars, which received the fifth most votes.
A couple weeks ago, we held our dessert bar competition here at corporate headquarters. We had quite the task in front of us, since we received so many recipes (and all of these sounded delicious). We enlisted the help of co-workers, family members, and friends, and finally came up with a list of our favorites (see our other favorite dessert bar recipes so far).
Because your submissions were just so tasty, we're publishing more than the usual three recipes online. So, today, meet our 5th favorite recipe: Strawberry Limeade Bars, by Julie Egan of Flower Mound, Texas.
We loved the refreshing, slightly tropical twist of these bars. They taste just like the drink!
