The idea was barely adapted from THIS recipe from Inside BruCrew Life. I never knew you could make fudge with a container of frosting and chocolate chips! I might NEVER make real fudge now.
The only problem I had was that I microwaved the frosting in its original container and it overflowed a little… just a smidge.
I let it set in the fridge for a few hours before I cut it up.
I called it PB&J fudge ‘cause strawberry frosting= jelly and Reese’s Cups= peanut butter. This recipe is a total win. Husband is devouring it, and the folks he works with are cursing me for ruining their diets. Sorry! 😉

So… sometimes there are weekends when I’m not motivated to bake. This weekend was one of them. We had a cookout on Friday, and my Dad was here all til Sunday. So I was a little worn out by the time Sunday afternoon rolled around.
On those Sunday’s when I don’t really want to bake, but I really want something sweet… I make Puppy Chow/ Muddy Buddy or Monkey Bread. This weekend I made both. But with a Twist!
The Puppy Chow is really more of a “snack mix” because I think it should have Chex in it to be considered Puppy Chow. But it’s still delish. You def need to use a HUGE bowl so everything doesn’t go all over the place when you’re stirring! This is another product of my S’mores obsession. I like it a whole lot… and I don’t think it’s going to last long around here. This is easy-peasy and it doesn’t take me more than 10minutes from start to finish. Check out my S’mores Snack Mix recipe!
The PB&J Pull-Apart Muffins are a spin off of my favorite (and super easy) monkey bread muffins. They’re pretty easy to make… but kind of messy. Seriously… if you have a problem with a messy kitchen, skip these. Use a plastic knife to get these out of the muffin tin. The jelly gets well cooked on the edges, and if you don’t scrape down the sides before you try and take them out your pieces will pull apart before you’re ready. I also didn’t add a glaze or anything to these, but I think they could use a little drizzle of something or other. Ya know?
I’m sure I’m not the first person to try either of these things… but I didn’t google either of them to find out. I didn’t/ don’t want to know if someone’s done ‘em before!
No matter what, I’m pretty impressed with the way they both came out.
PS. There aren’t any pictures of the S’mores Snack Mix because it looks like every other puppy chow recipe I’ve ever seen!
