I decided that this month’s Cookie of the Month needed to involve peanut butter. You can never go wrong with a peanut butter cookie. Of course, I have trouble leaving well enough alone, so I took my peanut butter cookies and sandwiched them with chocolate ice cream.
I do kind of love how these turned out. They don’t have that perfectly gorgeous, not-one-peanut-out-of-place feel, but they do make me want to dive in face first nonetheless.
When I mentioned to Carla that I needed a killer brownie recipe for the upcoming family reunion brownie bake-off for eternal fame and glory, she suggested I try her Peanut Butter Crispy Marshmallow Brownies.
Can I just describe to you why this is arguably the best krispie treat ever? The biggest reason, besides the obvious heavenly peanut butter and chocolate combination, is corn syrup.
This week, I decided my portable snacks ought to be homemade, and since I recently purchased some new popsicle molds, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to test them out. Also, it gave me an excuse to eat Snickers.
One of my alternatives to junk-food snacking this season is these Granola Bites. There is still enough sweetness in them to make them really fun and delicious, while packing a protein punch that keeps the cravings at bay. Plus? I love peanut butter. YUM.
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.
