3 Ingredient Chocolate PB Sammiches: On the Sixth Day of Christmas…

…my true blog gave to me, a ridiculously easy but impressive looking cookie recipe!!

Yes, ’tis the season for cookie exchanges, holiday get togethers laden with treats, or if you are like me…graduation parties for one of our best friends named Cookie!!

In fact I am typing this on my way to surprise him with a cookie bar party!!! It’s going to be epic! I wish I had time to give you all of the recipes I used for cookies, but this is one of my favorites so I will at least share it with you!! Simple, a classic flavor combo that is super popular…and pretty cheap too I must say!! Without the hassle of measuring flour or firmly packing sugar or not over mixing!! I can sum it up in 3 steps:

Spread, squish, dip!!

So, here’s what you need:

*Ritz crackers (I used 2 rolls and ended up with about 30 sammiches)
*Peanut Butter (1/4-1/2 of an average size jar)
*1 package Chocolate Almond Bark

And here’s how you do it:

1) Smudge a generous amount of peanut butter on the flat side of one ritz.
2) Using the flat side of another ritz, smoosh it down till the peanut butter reaches the edges of the crackers!
3) Put almond bark in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 90 seconds, stir. Microwave in 15 second increments, stirring each time, until there are no solids left.
4) Dunk each sammich in chocolate until coated. Shake off excess chocolate and place on wax paper. If you are in a hurry like I was, place in your freezer for a couple minutes until coating is set.

And you’re ready!! Easy peasy!!!

OH MY GOSH Brownie Surprises! (Cheat Treat!!!)

There is nothing healthy about these.  And I’m not gonna lie.  I am completely unashamed.  I’m not perfect.  And who could resist these?!  I got the idea from a picture I saw on Pinterest…but it was mostly just a picture.  It did mention to use a boxed brownie mix.  No sir.  Those don’t come into my house.  Not after you have been raised on the brownies I was.  Anywho.  Want to know what I am talking about?  Here is a picture of the monster I made!!!

Photo (6)Yeah.  That happened.  Now you know why I call them “oh my gosh” brownies, haha!  See, Mr. Rodgers and his best friend were travelling to speak at a youth rally in Michigan.  I wanted to do something special to let them know they were loved and would be missed, and to make their long car ride more enjoyable 🙂 And so…this beast happened, haha!!  They FLIPPED over these!  And definitely appreciated their “Bromantic Weekend Away” basket 🙂  See?

Photo (5)Fun 🙂  So, here’s what you need:

 

And here is what you do:

  1. Follow the directions to mix up Beth’s Brownies.
  2. Line your muffin tins with the foil liners.
  3. Fill the bottom of the muffin tins with a large spoonful of brownie batter.
  4. For each muffin tin, take an Oreo, spread PB on it, top with another Oreo and spread more PB on top of that.
  5. Squish your Oreo sammich down into the batter, so that there is still a layer on the bottom and yet it starts to squish up the sides.
  6. Top with another large spoonful of brownie batter.
  7. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the brownie part comes out clean 🙂
  8. Take a bite while it’s warm!!!  There are few things better than piping hot Oreos!!  Enjoy!!!!
