One of my husband’s favorite candy is peanut butter cups and with his birthday being today, I wanted to make him a cake that reminded him of them. My cake is a little more peanut butter heavy than I had hoped, but it’s just as a delicious and by adding the chocolate drizzle, it helped amp of the chocolately (is that a word?) goodness.
The cake is moist, full of peanut butter and chocolate and perfect with a cup of coffee to start your morning … or a pick-me-up in the middle of the afternoon.
Imperial Sugar is helping me with all my #Choctoberfest baking with their generous donation of granulated sugar they sent me. It’s been giving me a lot of reasons to spend time in my kitchen.

It’s basket party fundraiser season and that always means finding new recipes for bite-sized appetizers and desserts. I attended my first party of the year last Friday night and had a great time meeting other parents in our school district and catching up with old friends.
I decided to bring a dessert after seeing the list of what everyone else at our table was bringing. I also needed something that I could make ahead of time, knowing how busy my week was going to be.
They were decadent. Crunchy, peanut butter balls wrapped in dark chocolate with a sprinkling of toffee bits on top. They’re simple to make but will be sure to impress anyone!
I was in the mood to do some baking this past weekend and whipped together a batch of peanut butter scones. This recipe is slightly different from some of the other recipes I’ve used for scones, but it was just as good!
The texture of these scones are much more moist than other scones I’ve made. It’s almost like a combination of peanut butter cookie and scone. I like to warm them in the microwave slightly and spread a smear of extra peanut butter on them. I might try add peanut butter chips to the batter next time – for a little more of a decadent treat!
Growing up in the Philadelphia area, I’ve always enjoyed the deliciousness of snack cakes from TastyKake. One of my favorites was the peanut butter tandy cakes and I’m excited to share this little taste of childhood with all of you. It’s three layers – a chocolate layer, creamy peanut butter and a light and fluffy cake. It’s soooo good!
Bite-sized desserts are just too cute! Last weekend was my company’s holiday party and we have a dessert bar made by all of our employees. I always try to make something new and this year I was craving something with peanut butter and chocolate. I found this recipe for bite-sized peanut butter pies with a chocolate crust. Flaky, chocolate crust filled with a rich peanut butter mousse and then topped with a drizzle of a chocolate and crushed peanuts – they are to die for!
It’s time to Fill the Cookie Jar with all things pumpkin! I knew I couldn’t miss this month because I love pumpkin and it’s been awhile since I baked something delicious. These oat squares are packed full of pumpkin, peanut butter and chocolate chips. My husband loved them and I’ll need to hide the rest of the batch, so my kids can enjoy them too.
They have the perfect amount of sweetness and are a little chewy – something for everyone! The best part is that take less than 30 minutes to make, including baking; which is perfect for us busy moms who are doing 3 things at once.
Peanut butter and jelly….spread’em out. Whenever I hear those words, it takes me back to my days of cheerleading camp. I even find myself saying at my cheer practices now. Today’s recipe is part of the Fantastical Food Fight blogging group. Each month we’re given a theme – it could be an ingredient or a specific recipe. This month’s theme was Peanut Butter and Jelly. I was planning to make burgers with a PB&J twist, but life got in the way. This was my back-up plan.
My husband loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and I knew these bars would be a hit! Now if I can just stay away from the container of them that’s taunting me every time I go into the kitchen. I did sneak a little taste when I was cutting them up and they’re full of peanut butter and jelly deliciousness. They have peanut butter shortbread crust, gooey jelly filling and then a crumbly top with honey-roasted peanuts. YUM!!
It’s time for this month’s Fantastical Food Fight featuring chocolate covered treats. The possibilities are far and wide with this theme! I had originally thought about making truffles and then considered a chocolate dipped cookie … then I thought what about my something my husband loves – peanut butter, pretzels and chocolate! That’s where this treat comes in … a crunchy pretzel, filled with peanut butter and then dipped in milk chocolate, crushed honey roasted peanuts sprinkled on top with a drizzle of white chocolate.
These pretzels were super simple to make and the longest part was impatiently waiting for the chocolate to set before devouring them!
This month the theme for the blogging group, Fill the Cookie Jar, is healthy or a cookie/bar that makes you think of a fresh start. For me, January is always a time to get a fresh start especially since I usually indulge over the holidays. These cookies are made with only four ingredients and take 20 minutes to make…plus they’re the perfect little treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!
These cookies use coconut flour in place of all-purpose flour. Coconut flour is high in fiber, protein and healthy fats. It’s also free of wheat and other grains, so a great option for those who have certain allergies.
If you’re not familiar with the Fill the Cookie Jar group, we’re a group of bloggers who share cookie or bar recipes the first Thursday of the month. Be sure to check out the link below to see all the other healthy/fresh start cookies and bars shared by the group.
It’s the first Thursday of the month and that means it’s time to Fill the Cookie Jar! This month’s theme is fall or halloween. Fall for me usually means pumpkin, apple and comfort food, but lately it’s been running here, running there, and running everywhere. So, when I decided on a recipe, I needed something that my kids could eat on the go. These chocolate peanut butter chia bars were perfect for that!
