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!

Ultimate Mounds Brownies

Did you ever get tired of the same old type of dessert? Brownies are brownies are brownies. Flour, cocoa, eggs, sugar plus a few other ingredients and you end up with an awesome end result.  Sure you can frost them, add nuts or cookies to the batter.  Heck you can add load of chocolate. Or better yet, cut ’em, stick a wooden stick in them, freeze them then dip ’em in chocolate and sprinkles/nuts and you have one AMAZING treat! I have a KILLER treat like that which also includes fudge and ice cream on a stick that I HAVE to share with you later this summer!

Mounds Brownies

This recipe kind of just evolved.  You see I had to make 2 types of brownies for an order and the customer said “Just make ’em different” is all she said.  No rhyme or reason – just have at it as she would say. Now this honestly is some of the most difficult type of orders as I am not one to guess what the customer wants.  It’s a HUGE compliment when they tell me to make whatever as that means they love all the stuff I make but what if I make something and they aren’t say in the mood for peanuts or raspberries?  It’s tough.

These are just like the candy bar but in a brownie form!

Croissant Love – Ganache, Pastry Cream and Fresh Berries

This is one of those desserts that will make you a SUPERSTAR to whomever you serve it to. This dessert it pure decadence on a plate.  It’s GORGEOUS, elegant, fancy schmancy, hoity toity and just unbelievably incredible.  Now it’s not terribly difficult to make but you will need a tad bit of patience.  Now I’m giving you an out and telling you it’s “okay” to use store/bakery bought croissants but if you know how to make your own, please do so as it makes a world of difference.  Sorry but I can’t give my TKW croissant recipe out as that’s proprietary.  Remember, my ultimate goal is to open a bistro so I will need a few recipes of my own to make some money, kapeesh.

Seriously look at her and tell me she’s not one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen!

Totally drool-worthy if I do say so myself!
