Guten Tag! (That’s German for have a good day) I just had a great weekend in Leavenworth, WA a little Bavarian village east of the mountains for the Lumberjack Bachelorette Party weekend! I had a blast! I can’t wait to share one of my list things I accomplished there with you too.

Here we all are in our day attire in Leavenworth. A nice older gentleman in lederhosen took this photo for us during our shopping trip.

And here we are in our natural habitat as LumberJacqueline’s, beards, axes, wood and all in its National Forest luxury! I clicked the camera remote A LOT. You can see more amazing details from the amazing Holly here and here.
We had a great time celebrating the bride to be and it was a great way to get to know the other gals before the wedding-which is surely going to be a great time. I plan on wearing my beard and suspenders.
So now that you made those Lumberjack Stacks, here is another Lumberjack themed party treat!
Lincoln Logs aka Chocolate Caramel Cookies with Sea Salt from Two Peas and a Pod
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Soft caramels
- Sea salt
Bake at 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift together flour, soda and salt and set aside.
Melt butter in a sauce pan over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in cocoa powder and sugars until it resembles coarse sand. Add yogurt and vanilla, stir to combine. Add flour mixture, stirring until moist. Wrap the chocolate dough around the caramels and place to dough balls on the baking sheets and sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes and cool.
You will die when you eat these. Eat a few cookies and then go build a Lincoln log cabin!
