Nutella dessert recipes; You’ll love this peanut butter nutella dessert recipes!
It’s January. I’m supposed to be exercising and eating brown rice for dinner and green smoothies for breakfast, and spending my free time organizing my closets.
But, you guys… I’m terrible at eating healthy. I’m terrible at exercising. And I’d rather have a root canal than start an organizing project right now. The mere thought gives me heart palpitations.
You know what I’m great at? Peanut Butter. PEANUT BUTTER. And baking. And they go together like Bonnie and Clyde.
And these bars might be the death of me. Like Bonnie and Clyde.
Last night, after I was complaining about an e-mail I was expecting but hadn’t received, Robb told me I’m terrible at waiting, too. ”You’re a terrible waiter,” he said, right to my face. I stared at him for a long time. I didn’t want it to be true. But I have to admit that he’s right. I get impatient fast.
You can’t even imagine the self-control I had to exercise for these babies. I wanted to eat the dough with a spoon.
It was pure torture, waiting for them to bake, waiting for them to cool, waiting for them to be photographed before I could swan dive face first into them. Under normal circumstances, I would have burned my mouth eating a big spoonful right as I pulled the out of the oven. It might be the hardest thing about food blogging… the waiting.
When I finally did get to take a bite… ohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshthesearesogoodimmakingthisagaintomorrow.
Good thing I was home alone. Well, almost alone. The dog gave me a funny look.
He was probably jealous.
