RUN!!

Yes, RUN into the kitchen 
right this moment and pour 
yourself a glass of ice cold milk!

 Because I have a recipe 
that is going to blow your
peanut butter lovin' mind!

BY: SUGAR PLUM BLOG

I just have to start this off by explaining my sheer LOVE of CAP"N CRUNCH cereal! 
It always has been ... and always will be my favorite flavor! 
When I was pregnant with my son, I lived on this cereal {well, that and Chic-fil-A} - CAP'N CRUNCH was my midnight snack every single night for like months. 
lol, I never buy it because of this obsession I hold; I'll eat way too much and completely blow whatever possibility of a healthy diet I may have going on.

When I saw this recipe pop up on my Google Reader the other day, my mouth dropped! 
Heeelllllooo! 
CAP'N CRUNCH, dark chocolate and peanut butter all together in one cookie!? 

You can find the full recipe by clicking HERE. Emily over at Sugar Plum comes up with the funnest recipes! 
I heart her and her crazy combinations!


I made a few changes, mostly because I am lazy, ahem, didn't feel like getting two bags of sugar out. Instead of using both brown and white sugar, I opted for all brown. The only difference I saw was mine turned out to be slightly darker in color. 

If you love the PB and Chocolate combo, you'll flip over this cookie! It's pretty super-fantastic! 
Chewy and peanut butter-y with the smoothness and slight tang of dark chocolate. It's the perfect adult chocolate chip cookie!


Enjoy your weekend!! 
&
Happy Baking!

Girl Scout Knock Off Cookies

What a wonderful time of year...
it's the perfect temperature outside,
the house is filled with gorgeous spring colors
and Girl Scout Cookies are in!

I place the same order every year:
Caramel Delights
Thin Mints
Tagalongs

So, after we ate our last cookie I started thinking about copy cat recipes...
I found a TON of Ritz Cracker Cookies to mimic the Tagalongs.
They swore they tasted just like them...well, they lied! It's good, but it's not a Tagalong.

Then, I was perusing the cookie/cracker isle when it hit me - 
Why couldn't I use Nilla Wafers?

Here's my version of the super yummy Girl Scout Cookies!


You will need:


1 box of Nilla Wafers
1/2 cup Peanut Butter {I used crunchy, but smooth would be great!}
1/4 cup Powder Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp. Honey
16 oz. of your favorite Chocolate

In a bowl, add peanut butter, vanilla and honey - beat with a mixer until combined. Slowly add powder sugar until well incorporated. 


Lay out 48 Nilla Wafers on some parchment paper and smooth an equal amount of the peanut butter mixture on the rounded side of each cookie. 


In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate by microwaving it in 30 second increments {be sure to stir after each} until completely melted. Dip each cookie until completely covered in chocolate and place back on the parchment paper. Wait until they've dried and enjoy!


What a super easy, no-bake recipe!! They are a wee bit smaller than the Girl Scout version, but that just means we can eat 2 ... or 3! Because, they're FAB-UUU-LOUS
