PB&J Quick Fudge!!

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! 😉

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.

No Machine! PB Cup Ice Cream

Here  in PA we’ve had a of a heat wave this past  week. I shouldn’t be complaining… but I really hate being too hot. Honestly, it’s been in the 90’s, but the heat index puts it around 100. Ugh.
So, because it’s been too hot (and because I needed an excuse to try) I decided to make some ice cream. I don’t have one of those fancy-smancy ice cream machines so (of course) I went in search of some recipes on the InterWebs.
Most of the recipes I saw could be broken down into 3 bases. One with Cool Whip, another with heavy cream, and the last base was heavy cream and some other stuff that needed to be cooked. Now… I was in no mood to cook anything, and I really wanted to do something really simple so I chose to use Cool Whip as my base.
Then I just had to choose what to put in it! So many options… eventually I decided I should make something Hubs would eat, as I’m more of a FroYo girl.
The flavor is pretty good, but I think it should be more chocolatly. Next time I’m going to add more melted baking chocolate.
The texture isn’t as creamy as store-bought ice cream, but I bet if I used the heavy cream as a base it would be. It’s also kind of sticky… maybe I used too much condensed milk?
Overall, the recipe is yummy and with a few minor tweeks it could be heavenly.
Check out the recipe & try it out for yourself!
Happy Sunday!

Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cookies!!

My plan for the whole month of December was Christmas inspired cookies. As it turns out, Hubs still doesn’t have a job, and I didn’t want to spend any $ on a cookie press (which I planned on using this week to make some spitz or butter cookies)… Then, thanks to SugarLoco (follow them on Twitter/ FB/ check out their blog) I found THIS blog post! 100 Christmas cookies!? YES PLEASE! Hub’s picked this weeks Sunday Bakery cookies from the list.  I saved like 10 more into my favorites, and was inspired to “create” a Boozy/ Peppermint/ Red Velvet cupcake (still working on it)! YAY!! But I digress.
Overall these cookies are pretty yummy. The chocolate dough was simple, but a little sticky. Moisten your palms to roll it into balls. I used a tablespoon scoop to measure the size.
The Peanut butter “dough” tastes just like the inside of a Reese’s Cup! AND gave me an idea for peanut butter truffles… I used a teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out the little balls.
I baked mine for about 9 minutes, because I was waiting for the tops to crack. They never did. L I think they’re a little dry, but maybe that’s because I over-baked? Other than that they’re yummy. And perfect to share… unless you’re a fat kid like me. Then they’re perfect to hoard someplace your family/ husband can’t find them! J
Happy Sunday Bakery!
