If we’re being honest, cold weather isn’t my favorite, but hear me out! Yes, I moved from Atlanta to Chicago. And one of the main reasons I moved, you ask? Well, for more of a change in seasons, specifically winter. I grew up in the midwest, however after graduating from college I moved to Atlanta. And Atlanta was great! But I missed the changing of seasons, I missed having Fall weather for more than a couple of weeks, I missed the cold, okay?!
I know for a lot of people, this sounds absurd. Especially when we’re talking about the brutal Chicago winters, where for most of January and February, it feels like your face might as well be frozen off. However, that kind of weather just gives me more reason to stay inside and enjoy all the seasonal cold weather treats while cozied up under three blankets. Yes, I said three – your girl gets COLD!
Thinking about seasonal treats in the winter, there are three main ones that just always come to mind for me, aside from deliciously warm and cozy latte’s. I think of pies, warm fudgy brownies, and apple crisp. These three desserts just always feel cozy to me, so what’d we do here? We combined aspects of all three desserts to make one epic, cozy, delicious and decadent dessert to warm you in even the coldest of months! Introducing, dark chocolate apple crumble bars! They’ve got a buttery crust thats slightly reminiscent of pie crust. They also have a warm cinnamon apple filling made with Autumn Glory apples that are SO delicious, crisp, and refreshing. And finally, they have a delicious crumble, and a dark chocolate drizzle that’s to die for. There’s no way you won’t love these!
