Potluck brings back memories of family reunions, church picnics, and get togethers at the beach when I was a young girl. Now that the kids are grown and moved away and we aren’t as close to our families anymore, I really miss those days. Potluck means your taking a chance that a dish that someone is bringing to your gathering will be good. More often than not, you leave a potluck dinner with a new recipe in hand that you have to make yourself because it was so delicious! This week the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are sharing Summer’s Best Potluck Dishes with you. I guarantee you’re bound to see several you must make!

Thanks to T.R. of Gluten Free Crumbley for hosting this week’s event!

When I think of potluck I usually think casseroles or big salads. Those are easy to carry and share and you can make a LOT of food! I also think dessert like cookies, bars, or cupcakes. Dessert that is easy to eat with your fingers, no utensils needed! My favorite of all desserts to take to a potluck is the fudgey brownie.

I have a basic brownie recipe that I always use when making brownies. It’s the best one I have ever encountered and just as easy as opening a box. I also like to doctor my brownies up and this time I decided to do it with a cookie butter caramel!

I’m so in love with cookie butter! I was talking to T.R. about the brownies this week and he said he had never had it. I snapped a shot of the ingredient list so he could see and his response was, it’s basically flour and sugar! lol Oh well, it’s still ah-mazing! If you haven’t tried it, then you really should find some and dig in with a spoon. Seriously!

The cookie butter caramel was homemade by making a caramel sauce then stirring in some cookie butter. If you don’t want to take the time to make your own caramel, you can easily just take about 1/2 cup caramel topping that has been heated up and stir in the cookie butter until smooth. Easy peasy!
