As you might have guessed, we are major chocolate lovers here at SHEmazing! so naturally we were incredibly excited to learn that Mars is set to release caramel flavoured M&Ms.

At first glance it may seem strange that the chocolate giant has never attempted to channel this much loved flavour into its famed red and yellow sweets before, but this is actually because creating the right caramel for the job has taken Mars years of planning.

According to Delish, engineers were tasked with finding a caramel which would fill M&Ms without causing the iconic treats to collapse.

This process was very time heavy, but at long last chocolatiers are confident that caramel flavoured M&Ms are good enough to join the brand’s permanent collection.

While it is not yet clear when they will arrive in Ireland, the new M&Ms will hit US stores in May 2017.


So, we have mentioned this a couple of times in the past, but at SHEmazing! we are MASSIVE fans of baked goods. If you need proof then allow us to direct you to our Instagram account. 

Yes, it is true, we have never met a cake, pastry or chocolate-peanut butter concoction we haven't loved.

Don't even get us started on the cheesecakes. Naturally when we found this beauty of a recipe online we had to share it with everyone. 

Just look this! 

This cookie is the size of a steering wheel for goodness sake, and we love. We love it so much that we think everyone should try it and allow the deliciousness and sugar content to brighten up this chilly winter weekend. Also, it is very easy to make, so there's really no excuse. 



Soft carmel pieces (to be melted because nom)

Cookie dough x2

Chocolate chips (or M&Ms if you're feeling very fancy)

One giant dish to cook it in, the bigger the better. 


1. Melt the caramel pieces using the microwave (about 30-40 seconds) then stir until smooth.

2. Slice one roll of cookie dough into smaller pieces and line the dish with them. Spread them out until it's covered.

3. Pour the caramel over the first layer and then add some chocolate chips.

4. Slice the second roll of cookie dough and cover the fillings. 

5. Place in the oven and bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. 


Deep Dish Caramel Cookie

The dessert of kings; the sweet-treat of champions: here at SHEmazing! we recently stumbled upon a recipe for caramel Snickers cookie cups… and suffice to say our lives have since changed for the better.

Better still, they're embarrassingly easy to make. All you need is a batch of 1) chocolate chip cookie dough, 2) a bit of butter, 3) a bag of Snickers fun-sized, and 4) caramel sauce for drizzling (Tesco's Finest range has a great salted caramel sauce for €2.50). 

You're welcome.


1) Take a bun tray and light grease with a little butter.

2) Mash segments of cookie dough into the bun tray, creating a cup shape. 

3) Then bake for 10-12minutes at 180C.

4) Remove and, leaving the dough in the tray, immediately add a fun-sized Snickers bar to each cookie.

5) Let cool, transfer to a plate and drizzle with caramel just before serving.

You’ll never want to go the bakery again thanks to this easy and delicious chocolate caramel shortbread recipe.

What you’ll need:

  • 170g plain flour
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 120g butter
  • 397g tin condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 120g butter
  • 100g bar milk chocolate, melted

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 170 °C. Lightly grease your baking tin with butter.
  2. Sieve the flour and sugar into a large bowl. With clean hands, rub the butter into the mixture until it comes together in dough. Press it into the bottom of the cake tin, spread evenly and prick with a fork all over. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. While the shortbread is baking, pour the condensed milk, syrup, sugar and butter into a saucepan. Cook over a low heat, stirring all the time. Watch it closely, and when it turns a deep caramel colour, pour it over the baked shortbread.
  4. Allow the caramel mixture to cool for 30 minutes
  5. Then melt the chocolate in a microwave by checking and stirring every 10 seconds.
  6. When chocolate is melted pour over the caramel covered biscuits.
  7. Place the chocolate squares in the fridge for another 30 minutes to set.
  8. Then slice shortbread into squares, these delicious biscuits should keep for five days if stored in an airtight tin or the fridge.



Love your salt and sweet treats? Well, a London bakery has finally created a new Marmite cupcake to satisfy those taste needs.

The bakery, which is called Lola’s Cupcakes created the unusual treat especially for Father’s Day.

The cupcake has a chocolate sponge with a salted Marmite caramel centre. The cupcake is then topped with rich Marmite buttercream and chocolate icing.

Asher Budwig, the managing director of Lola’s Cupcakes, said: “I’m always searching for ways to create innovative, exciting cupcakes with unusual ingredients. Marmite’s saltiness complements the caramel extremely well, but the centre will either be a shock, or a pleasure depending on where your Marmite sensibilities lie.”

Hmm not sure if we’ll be trying this out but these cupcakes are definitely a must for Marmite lovers.
