Gettin’ Baked in Brooklyn…

No, not that kind of baked!

A better kind of baked.

My kind of baked.

All hopped up on sugar and chocolate and salted caramel!  Woohoo!

Strudel and I have blogged about recipes from Baked Explorationsagain and again and again.  One of my favorite bloggers has blogged about Baked as well,  check it out

Alas, last week I finally got the chance to go visit Baked in person.

My brother, Matt, lives in Somerset, New Jersey, and my daughter, Addison, and I were spending our last official week of summer with Matt, his wife Bree and my 5 month old nephew, Jack. 

So Matt, Jack, Addison and I ventured over the Verrazano Bridge to Brooklyn and stuffed our faces with some wonderful delights!

It’s off the beaten path in a Brooklyn neighborhood called Red Hook.

It’s a quaint, very inviting, very home-y feeling bakery with brown and orange decor and antlers here and there (even as a door handle).  Being from Colorado, the antlers were a strange and unexpected motif for me.  They are overused in fancy homes and restaurants in the Rocky Mountains but here in the middle of a gray day in the big city?  I felt strangely at home.

We dove right into the bakery case and bought a giant chocolate chip cookie, a pecan bourbon bar, a grasshopper bar (stay tuned for a post about this scrumptious treat) and a salted caramel bar. 

Matt had a cappuccino, I had a latte.

Here’s Addison gettin’ baked…

My favorite…

The salted caramel bar. Deeeelightful!

Next time you’re in the Brooklyn area, go check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
