Southerners put their heart and soul into their cooking, and take great pride in bringing a smile to a loved one’s face when they bite into one of their delicious creations. And no dinner is quite complete without something sweet! So, when I was recently contacted by the publishers of Southern Living Classic Southern Desserts letting me know that their new dessert book was being released, and asked me to do a recipe feature, I was honored and super excited to say the least, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!
The book is beautiful and packed full of delicious desserts! I devoured each page, taking in the beautiful pictures and reading the recipes and history of them. I truly found Classic Southern Dessert recipes, like Summertime Peach Ice Cream, Fresh Georgia Peach Pie, Classic Southern Triple-Decker Strawberry Cake, Pecan Pie…this list goes on and on.
Flipping through this book, I had a hard time choosing what to make but ultimately decided to make the German Chocolate Snack Bars. They were very easy and delicious! I thought they tasted like a dense brownie with a cheesecake topping. They’re easy to pick up and eat by hand, making them perfect for packing in a lunch or taking to a potluck!
They actually turned out looking very similar to the photo in the book:
