I knew what I wanted to do with them…make something with the PERFECT combination!
What is your idea of the PERFECT combination???
To me it HAS to be peanut butter & chocolate! There is nothing better than those two flavors together. Of course I can eat peanut butter straight up, right out of the jar…but chocolate, not so much. I’m not a big chocolate fan, when it’s by itself. I would much rather eat it WITH something…like peanut butter of course
I told Craig that I would make him a ‘boy’ dessert that we could bring when we went to my sister’s house the other night. I told him to STAY away from the snickerdoodles, but in exchange he would get a special treat. Sounds like I live with a 5 year old, huh?!
Here’s what I came up with:
Chocolate PB Bundt Cake
(adapted from this recipe)
3/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 package (King Size) Mini Bite size Reeses
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a bundt pan with non stick spray.
2. In a medium bowl, mix melted butter, sugars and vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time.
3.Gradually add flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt and mix until combined.
The B.O.M.B! It’s REALLY rich, so beware. But OH so yummy
More on this 30 day challenge…
Day 11- Put your Ipod on Shuffle & Write 10 songs that Pop up.
Ok, well, this isn’t going to happen. Sorry! My ipod is dead..like really dead, like it needs to charge for 5 days kind of dead. Since our gym has tv’s at every cardio station, I typically just watch tv while I run or I put on MTV & listen to all of the music videos. Once I start running more outside (when I start my new medication) I will once again have my ipod up & running..until then I just keep myself entertained with different tv shows
That being said, I’ll just go on to Day 12- Bullet your whole day.
