Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate come together to create cookies that taste just like Peanut Butter Cups.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies (Gluten-Free)

Hi Everyone! Am I posting a recipe on a Thursday? Yes, it’s happening. I’m so sorry to anyone who loves routine (just like me) and has been thrown off by my posting schedule lately. As you can see, I have a new recipe for you today and another one coming tomorrow. I’ll be returning to my regular schedule (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) next week. Just thought I’d fill you in ;).

The wait for today’s recipe was well worth it though. Ever since making these cookies, I have been on pins and needles to finally fill you all in. Because Peanut Butter Cup Cookies should be shared with as many people as possible. They’re are incredible.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies (Gluten-Free)

The best part is that they’re also gluten-free. Judging from the amount of comments and questions I get to come up with a gluten-free cookie recipe, I know that there are quite a few of you that will be excited about this one. I baked, tested and finally came out with a winner. It took me a while to get the cookies just right. Achieving the same taste and texture of “regular” chocolate chip cookies was my goal. And I’m certain I’ve succeeded. [Read more…]

Candy Corn Peanut Butter Cups

Candy Corn, Peanuts, Chocolate. Do I need to say more? Best candy creation ever!

Today’s recipe is for everyone who can’t stop reaching into that bag full of candy corn. Oh, and peanut butter cup lovers too.

My affection with everything peanut butter and chocolate is well documented on this blog. I even have a super simple recipe for homemade peanut butter cups (that require only 2 ingredients) already on the blog. When I’m in a cinch, I totally whip up a batch of those and have my way with them. But today’s version is slightly different. I jazzed it up a bit and made some delicious additions.

I actually got the idea while eating a mix of candy corn, roasted peanuts, and chocolate chips the other day. Best fall snack… hands down! So I thought that the only thing better would be a handheld sweet. And I was totally right. All of my cravings in one little cup.

Addictive little things, these are. [Read more…]

Crispy Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

BetterThanAnythingBrownies

I am so sorry for sharing these brownies with you. Only because you won’t be able to stop thinking about these. I knew I had you at brownies. Oh, and peanut butter cups. But there’s more. Too many mouthwatering ingredients to possibly fit into one name. Triple Chocolate Chunk Brownies at the bottom. Peanut butter cups and salted peanuts form layer #2. And finally, rice cereal slathered in a concoction of creamy, dreamy peanut butter and luscious milk chocolate for the third and final layer. I think I will stop now. You know this is going to be delicious! [Read more…]

Peanut Butter Cups

Since Halloween is less than 24 hours away, I thought I’d share my favorite candy with you. Peanut butter and chocolate is pretty hard to beat. Whoever invented that fabulous combination deserves some kind of a price. Seriously. While I happen to have other favorites, Peanut Butter Cups are my first choice almost every time followed by Snickers. With the success of copying the famous Reese’s Cups, I am getting giddy just thinking about the endless possibilities of candy-making in the comfort of my own home. Did I mention that you’ll only need 2 ingredients to produce your own PB Cups? Yes, it’s true – easy, peasy, out-of this-world-lip-smacking Chocolate Cups filled with rich and creamy peanut butter are about to boggle your mind. Here we go!
