Go Crazy & Jelly Bars (Cookie Butter Peanut Butter & Jelly Crack Bars)

Taking PB&J to a whole new level! Crunchy chocolate pretzel crust, raspberry awesomeness, creamy ‘butter’ filling, and decadent chocolate ganache make these bars over the top CRAZY!

So this recipe is one of those “I need something sweet and I don’t care if I have to eat peanut butter out of the jar” type of recipes. Actually full disclosure, that’s how this recipe came to be. I was starving and wanted something sweet but also something fast. Peanut butter!  Peanut butter is my go-to dessert/sweet/protein/just-get-it-in-my-mouth-as-fast-as-possible food. I was in my kitchen, working on some recipes but didn’t have time to make myself something real to eat so out came the spoon and jar of peanut butter.

Yes, I’m one of THOSE people who eat peanut butter out of the jar. It’s my jar so I can do whatever I want. So I’m sitting there, happy as a little piggy with a newly found mud puddle when I “accidentally” grabbed the spoon from the jar of cookie butter. It wasn’t intentional though I can’t say if it wasn’t subliminal. Anyway I was like “OH! Well that’s a nice surprise!” You see I was working on my Ultimate Cookie Butter Cream pie and had it out along with a big bowl of ganache at the time.

So there I am, in the kitchen a spoon in each hand and a fretted look on my face as I really needed a third hand to scoop the ganache. That’s when I decided to whip up a few buckeyes. Well about halfway through making the filling I decided to incorporate the cookie butter and then I realized I needed a textural element thus the pretzels. See while I like traditional buckeyes, I prefer a crunch to them so often I’ll add pretzels to it or rice cereal.

Whether you go straight cookie butter, peanut butter or both, you’re going to love these bars!

Okay no, hell did not freeze over nor did yours truly hit her head. No I wasn’t abducted by aliens or is someone impersonating me. It’s me, Lori… for real. Yes I posted yet another cherry recipe. I know what you’re all thinking…’but you hate cherries Lori. Like to the point you call them Demon Seeds from the gates of hell!’. And you’re completely right. I hate those things BUT that doesn’t mean you guys do. I mean it’s okay if you’re a weirdo and like them. lol love you ♥ It’s just I realized that by not sharing cherry recipes that my family loves is well, unfair to the world. You all should be able to share in the deliciousness even though yours truly wont.

Am I harsh on cherries? Nope. LOL I hate ’em and that sucks as they look so good. I mean this dessert, honestly, looks freaking amazing!  And yes, for the record I did try it. I kinda have to. I can’t publish something without ever trying it; that is just well, rude and misleading. What I will tell you is that everyone that has tried this through out the years, LOVES IT! Like to the point it’s almost obsessive. But hey, in the world of chefdom, that’s a huge compliment!

With these MVP Bars you’ll be the STAR of big game!  A peanut butter pretzel crusted chocolate chip cookie topped with the most incredible chewy peanut butter marshmallow popcorn topping!

Oh how I love football season!  The tailgating, the cheering on your favorite team, the yelling at the refs over calls you think are stupid (admit it – you do it too!), the game superstitions and the food.  OMG the food!  Let’s face it, if you’re not playing in the actual game, the food is the second most important thing.  You need proper eats if you want to be “the house” that every one wants to be at for the big game. You could literally put out milk crates or couch cushions for folks to sit on but as long as you have a killer tv and even better food you’re place IS the hot spot (well that is unless you’re actually at the game).

When the folks from Orville Redenbacher® wanted a new recipe featuring their AMAZING (seriously it’s ridiculously good!) Movie Theater Butter Popcorn for the Big Game I was stoked! You see I have a slight obsession with this popcorn and movie theater popcorn. Ever since I was little, going to the movies and getting my very own tub of popcorn was a huge treat.  All that butter and warm popcorn with a great movie – seriously perfect!  Popcorn to me meant happy times. It was something we’d share as a family bumping hands in the buckets of popcorn trying to get the ‘best pieces”.

Make these MVP bars and you will be the star of the food table!

Cranberry Zucchini Blondie Bars Two Ways – Angelic & Sinful

If you want a super moist, seriously delicious dessert you can make healthy orrrrr not so healthy then these Cranberry Zucchini Blondie Bars are for you! Just a few simple tweaks and you can go from angelic to sinful.

Okay so I have to tell you about this recipe or more so the response I got on Facebook when I asked if I should post this recipe now.  You see I posed the question on Facebook if I should post this recipe now or not. You see with it being the first week in January everyone and their mother is trying to live up to their New Years resolutions of being on a diet, eating healthier and going to the gym.  Now I’m all for that but not because of a resolution because let’s face it only about 8% of those that make these resolutions actually stick with it. Instead make it a lifestyle change.   Anyway this recipe is one that you can make 2 ways – healthy and one that won’t weigh on your conscious or make you feel guilty (which is something I have issues with.  Everything in moderation people and exercise but I digress).  The other way is full on sinful – we’re talking butter, chocolate and hello… BUTTERCREAM!!!

Anyway so I posed this question – should I post it now or should I post like a salad or lettuce wrap but everyone gave a resounding “Post it Lor!”.  However one person, dear Ms. Maggie…. oh dear Maggie, well she literally made me belly laugh out loud.  Her initial response was “o m g….post it or i will hurt you..jk”  When I read that I lost it because even though we’ve never met she’s been a part of the TKW Family for a while now and her posts always make me smile and giggle.  Through our chats and posts you get to know folks which one of the things I LOVE about social media and here.  You become friends, family and build bonds.

What’s awesome and what I feel makes me so truly blessed is that I not only have that bond with Maggie but everyone in the TKW Family.  If you haven’t stopped by the Facebook page, definitely stop by and say hi!  Everyone is so warm and welcoming!  Now before Ms. Maggie puts a hit out on me, let’s get to this dessert *wink*.

So packed with deliciousness, you’re definitely going to want to make this!
