Peanut Butter Pie Bars

I shouldn’t admit this, but I still had a few bags of graham cracker crumbs left over from when I made graham cracker chocolate chip cookies. While I hate throwing anything away, I tend be in a never-ending race between waiting for the right recipe to come along, and the expiration date. I still had…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bread

When I saw this recipe, I immediately thought of a friend of mine who’s addicted to peanut butter.  I’m pretty sure he could live on it alone, so I decided to make this peanut butter chocolate chip bread in his honor.  Personally, I thought the concept sounded a little odd, but when I tasted the…

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bark

  This peanut butter rice krispie bark is my own take on Avalanche cookies which is an adaptation of something that exists at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory; a place that I’ve never been to, but I have a cousin who loves to go there whenever she sees one in the airport. Whenever white chocolate…

Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Fudge Frosting

I was all set to make peanut butter sandwich cookies with a chocolate creme filling, when I decided that I wasn’t in the mood for cookies. I wanted cake. So I decided to try to make a peanut butter cake with chocolate fudge frosting. I researched different recipes to see how it would work and was able…

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

I have a friend who makes the best lamb ragout in the world. It’s also the only lamb ragout I’ve ever had, but I’ like to think that it world still be the best if I ever tried it somewhere else. So when he sends out a group text announcing that he’s made a batch,…

Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

It’s almost Thanksgiving and we still have Halloween candy in the house. My son likes to horde the candy like Gollum and the ring (shameless Lord of the Rings reference), saying that he’s going to eat it all, reluctantly sharing a left over laffy taffy. Yet fall turns to winter and turns to spring and…

Peanut Butter Brownies

My mom asked me to send her these brownies. She’s been in the mood for peanut butter and chocolate ice cream lately (her favorite), but it’s been soooo cold in Michigan, the last thing she wants to do is eat something cold. So, she did the next best thing. She called me up and asked…

Peanut Butter Honeycomb Pie

I was on the web (as always) the other day googling something about peanuts (or peanut brittle, or french burnt peanuts), when this recipe title caught my eye. One click and I immediately started checking to see if I had the ingredients in my cupboard. I eagerly started with the Honeycomb. Preparing honeycomb is very…

Cashew Blondie with Caramel

Disclaimer: This was an experiment and a work in progress. About a month ago, I made blondies with peanut, pretzel and caramel. It was pretty good and reminded me of a payday, but it only made me really want to try to make a payday “type” bar (not a candy bar, but blondie bar). I…

Everything Cookies

Chocolate chips. Peanut butter. Oats. Raisins. Pretzels. Walnuts. I like all of these things. Would I like all of these things all together in one cookie? Maybe? Ok, not really.  For some reason, I had high hopes for this cookie. There were so many great elements. I thought it might turn out something like a…

Banana Chocolate-Chip Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

I was flipping through my recipe binder not too long ago, and this recipe caught my eye. Side note: I’ve collected recipes over the years that sound good, put them in a binder and promptly forget about them. My intention is to bake it someday. It’s just hard to determine when “someday” is. I was…
