We just realized nobody has been able to comment for a few days! So sorry about that…the problem has been fixed so please comment away! *Thanks Erin!
Hey Everyone! Jen and I have some exciting news to share! You may have noticed yesterday that a “discounts” section appeared over on the sidebar to your right. We have dreamed about being able to offer discounts to our readers through this blog and it is now happening! You may have remembered the ever popular “Mr. Darcy” mug by North South Creations we featured a few weeks back. Leah, the owner of North South Creations is now offering a promo code to our readers! By using PPS10 when you check out of her Etsy store you will receive 10% off your purchase. THANK YOU, LEAH! Make sure you take a few minutes to check out North South Creations – everything is under $20 and cute! There is a fun plate I am eyeing for part of our brother’s wedding gift in October…hmmmm! Jen and I are hoping to offer other discount codes for all of you in the future!
After all that excitement the rest of this post might seem boring. But then again, when you are talking about desserts, could it really be that bad?
Is there any combination better than peanut butter and chocolate? The answer is no. Nothing is better. It is probably one of the best combinations man ever made (although, lets be honest, I’m sure it was a woman who first came up with the combo). Jen and I came across this recipe for peanut butter cups from Sweetest Kitchen and decided to try them out. We took some photos along the way, and decided to share them with you. We kind of forgot to start taking pictures until we were a few minutes into the process. Oops. Also keep in mind that we are NOT food photographers. Hopefully our skills in this area will improve.
This recipe was super easy. First you melt a bunch of chocolate and mix up the filling (peanut butter, grahm cracker crumbs, and powdered sugar)
Then you take the chocolate and put a little bit into a lined muffin tray and put some chocolate up the sides (we forgot to take a picture of this step). Then you throw this in the freezer and let it set up. If you are like us you check it 49 times to see if the chocolate is firm because you are so anxious to eat this stuff. It really only takes like 5 minutes to set.
Then you put the filling inside the the muffin tray….(and something is up with the white balance of this picture so that is why the coloring is a little strange)
You then take the remainder of your chocolate and cover the top of your filling and put it back in the freezer (or fridge) and let it set up. Again, this takes a few minutes. Finally you take the deliciousness out of the wrapper and you eat it. And feel like you maybe have gone to heaven because you have a gigantic peanut butter cup on your plate that cost less than buying a package of them from the grocery store. And they taste 10x better, too.
My mouth is watering just looking at these. Oh yum. Well that wraps up a pretty awesome day, I’d say. Affordable pillows, a discount code, and a recipe for peanut butter cups using ingredients you probably already have in your house. On that note, see you tomorrow, friends!
