Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love my chocolate, as I’m sure many of you have realized by now. And peanut butter and chocolate is one of the best combinations to ever be invented. So when this recipe popped up on my Pinterest from Butter with a Side of Bread, I knew I had to try it.

The recipe is absolutely perfect and these are indeed probably one of the best peanut butter chocolate chip cookies I’ve had/made. No substitutions needed for it, I baked the cookies for 10 minutes and was very satisfied with the softness of them. However, if you like really gooey cookies lean more towards an 8 minute baking time. Super easy to make and all ingredients you can find in a common household, if you’re like me and keep peanut butter and chocolate chips on hand all the time. I highly recommend this recipe, perfect for everyone! And don’t forget the classic fork marks!

Flourless Fudgey Peanut Butter Brownies

I’ll be perfectly honest, I don’t usually cater to gluten free, vegan, etc but I saw this recipe on Creme de la Crumb and the photos just drew me in! These brownies looked extraordinary and fudgey, plus who could resist the classic chocolate and peanut butter combo! 

A huge plus to this recipe: it’s super easy. It was a last minute decision to make these and it was awesome because the ingredients are ones that you most likely keep in your house. They are quick and easy and perfect for last minute parties, thank you gifts, and satisfying any cravings. I give this recipe two thumbs up and my friends couldn’t resist them which was extremely satisfying. It’s always great seeing people enjoying your creations, whether you put an hour into it or three (remember that fellow bakers!). These brownies are a must, so go on, click on the link and get started! Happy baking!

Skinny Frozen Peanut Butter Pies

Sometimes it’s hard to find a recipe that combines not only chocolate and peanut butter, but also a low calorie count. Not to mention, sometimes you just don’t feel like slaving away at a three tier cake and want something delicious, but easy to make. This recipe, from Crazy for Crust, combines all of the above. 

This recipe is the easiest thing in the world, the hardest part was probably obstaining from eating the whipped topping. Also, thanks to the creator Dorothy at Crazy for Crust, it’s under 200 calories! That’s thanks to the low fat ingredients she used. The worst ingredient was the butter, but that’s hard to avoid in any baked good. What I also like about this recipe is the peanut butter is subtle, it’s not overpowering, just the right amount. 

She recommends leaving these tasty treats in the freezer overnight. I started making these around three fifteen in the afternoon and needed them that night. Helpful hint, I stuck the cupcake tin and liners in the freezer while I made both the graham cracker and butter mixture and whipped topping. Then I assembled it all, which I think helped a lot. When it came to eating them at nine that evening, I think they had the right amount of time! No matter what, like the blogger says, the crust is going to be crumbly, but the topping and chocolate chips would have been pretty frozen solid if left overnight I think. 

This recipe is going to be a go to for me, for parties and for when I’m hankering for chocolate and peanut butter! Thank goodness they are skinny!

Peanut Butter Brownies

Probably one of the best food combinations ever is peanut butter and chocolate. Well, let’s face it peanut butter is just awesome in general and would probably taste good with just about anything. But as a baker at heart finding the perfect recipe for peanut butter brownies is a must so when I stumbled upon this recipe from Smitten Kitchen it was as if I was standing in Ollivander’s with Harry Potter when he got his first wand. It’s the perfect chocolate to peanut butter ratio and not extremely rich. You will probably need a tall glass of milk on hand, but still one of my favorite recipes and is a huge crowd pleaser.
Happy Baking!
