I can’t believe March is over already. It kind of flew by for me.
You know what I love about March? First of all, it’s Girl Scout Cookie season. I’m a big fan of the Thin Mints and the Tagalongs, but the Samoas have grown on me over the years. This year, I decided to make a rice krispie treat with the flavors in the Samoas (caramel, coconut, and chocolate) and we could not stop eating them. They’re even better than the original cookie, if you ask me.
Second, it’s St. Patrick’s Day in March, which is really just a good excuse to wear my favorite green t-shirt. I also made green cream cheese mints, and Virgin Mojitos. The mojitos were SOO refreshing! That lime and mint combination is the perfect way to welcome the upcoming spring season.
Third, it’s my nephew’s birthday, and he requested Brownie Cookies as his personal birthday treat. These babies are spot-on delicious, and will make any chocoholic very, very happy.
Last but not least, let’s not forget chocolate peanut butter day. It’s funny how many crazy food holidays are out there, and chocolate peanut butter day might be my favorite. I don’t see any reason not to celebrate the most fantastic flavor combination known to man. This year, more than 30 of us celebrated together, so if you’re in love with chocolate peanut butter treats, you’ll find some really fantastic ideas in this post!
There are lots of ways you and I can stay connected, and I hope you’ll choose one or two of your favorites, so we can keep in touch! Here are a few ideas:
I have a new Pinterest board, this one called Peanut Butter Favorites. It’s already full of stuff I wish I had time to make.
