Chocolatey PB Caramel Corn!!

I adapted this recipe from Crazy For Crust! It’s sooo good, like crazy good.
 
I’ve had it bookmarked for (what seems like) FOR.EV.ER. and I really wanted to make something that was super-easy and shareable … there’s some sort of major sporting event tonight that people like to gather for… I think it has something to do with football. 😉
 
The next time I make this I’m going to use candy melts. Just like the notes from the original recipe said, the white chocolate melted on my hands. This is probably only a concern if you’re going to be sharing. If you happened to be hunched over a large serving bowl shoving handful in your mouth and growling at anyone who comes to close… melting chocolate won’t be a problem. Not that that happened or anything.
 
I’ll also probably use either peanut butter OR peanut butter chips… this time I was running really low on PB and I wanted to make sure I’d have enough left over for my bagel tomorrow.
 
I let both cookie sheets set in the fridge for a few hours before I broke up the chunks and mixed them together.
 
This stuff is so good I’m glad we’re not going to any Super Bowl Parties so I won’t have to share any of MY Chocolatey PB Caramel Corn!! Click on the link to see my recipe.
 
Happy Making!

PB&J Cinnamon Rolls!!

 
My birthday was this past Friday. And nothing says “grownup mature adult woman” like hanging out in sweatpants and baking these PB&J Cinnamon Rolls. Riiiiiiiiight?  They took the place of a birthday cake for me this year… I’m not sure if I’m OK with the fact that I had to bake my own birthday “cake”, but either way these rolls are totally worth it.
 
The dough is from In Jennie’s Kitchen, and it’s the same one I used for my Cinnamon Rolls.
 
The filling & icing recipes are adapted from Runs With Spatula.
 
I had the same problem with these that I do with most things. That is… It’s somehow impossible for me to roll things out into an 11×8 rectangle. Seriously.  I know that sounds stupid, but I really can’t ever get things rolled out to the right size, usually I get these weird lumps and uneven edges! It drives me crazy!
 
At any rate… these PB&J Cinnamon Rolls (click for the recipe) are a WIN. Get in the kitchen and make them. Right. Now.
 
Happy Baking!

Homemade Butterfingers & Banana Walnut Scones

It’s possible that I’m addicted to Butterfingers. I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite candy bar. But, it’s possible I’ve said that about Snickers, or Reese’s too… don’t judge.
No matter what, I Iove me some Butterfingers. I also have a list of recipes to copycat which Butterfingers happen to be on. Of course I googled “homemade butterfingers” and got, like, a millioooooon hits. They all seemed to be the same recipe made with candy corn & peanut butter. They all claimed to have the taste right, but were lacking in the crunchy part (that I love). I was planning on adding crushed up unsalted chips to give it the right texture. But then an amazing thing happened! This post  from Erica’s Sweet Tooth popped up in my blog reader! Erica added Frosted Flakes! Genius! These had to happen.
Thankfully, it was only a few days after Halloween, and my aaaahmazing Hubs found a giant bag of candy corn in the discount section of the grocery. Score!
The candy corn took almost 3 minutes to melt in the microwave and I actually had to add the peanut butter then nuke it for another 15 seconds. Getting this stuff stirred is definitely an arm workout (but totes worth it).
When you press the mixture into the pan, dump the whole thing out at once. Don’t do it in sections. Why? Because when you try to cut the sections, they might break into (not square) pieces. It happened to me.
I used 2 ½ bags of candy melts, and only melted half a bag at a time.
Overall these get thumbs up from my tasters. The only complaint is that they (still) don’t have that real Butterfinger texture. Also, don’t store these in the fridge… you might chip a tooth.

On Sunday, I also made these awesome Banana Walnut Scones that I (slightly) adapted from Wholesome Homemaker. I added extra chopped walnuts and didn’t measure out how much banana I had. I was skeptical of these, mostly because I don’t think whole wheat has any place in my sweets/ desserts/ snacks. Just my bagels. They’re good though.I usually overwork my scones or biscuits but not this time! They’re perfect. A little like banana bread… I think I should’ve added some chocolate chips!
 
That’s what happened  in my kitchen last weekend!
Happy Baking!
