Halloween Spider Cookies: Chocolate Peanut Butter Halloween Cookies. A yummy peanut butter cookie with a chocolate peanut butter cup face and chocolate legs. This cookie will be a hit at your Halloween Party!…
I kind of have a slight obsession with peanut butter. How did I figure this out? 9 jars of peanut butter in my refrigerator may be a slight indication… 9 different kinds! I like them all: smooth, crunchy, salted, you name it. So I decided to make a batch of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are just perfectly delicious. Peanut butter and chocolate are one of my favorite combos.
It’s Day 5 of #choctoberfest!
Start your morning off right with this delicious smoothie!
This protein packed smoothie has the perfect amount of sweetness ( not that sweet at all ) I try to stay away from sweets in the morning. The banana sweetens it naturally. After a post workout, my body is so hungry, so this Hemp Protein Smoothie is perfect!! No sugar! A little bit of coffee and a big hug from Just Hemp Foods!

Here you will find some of the most delicious peanut butter desserts out there. Chocolate and peanut butter is the ultimate combination, so hold on to your socks when you see what else is paired with peanut butter! Check out these cakes, cookies, bars and more sweet treats!

I promised my God daughter that we would do some baking this summer. I asked her what she was thinking of making and she said a peanut butter chocolate. That is such a coincidence, I have been wanting to make that kind of pie too! I remember that my very talented blogger friend, Joan, from Chocolate, Chocolate and more made a Peanut Butter Pie and went off to search for her recipe.
We had all of the ingredients except a Graham Cracker Crust and Whipped Topping, so off to the market we went. But first we had to stop and get a little lunch. We decided to visit my daughter at work, lucky us she joined us at our table and took a break with her lunch.
My God Daughter also brought over her inventory to make me a DUCK TAPE wallet! My choices were food related….can you believe that? Pickles, Mac and Cheese and Leopard Print. I will cherish it forever.
Melted Chocolate on top of Graham Cracker Crust…so you get an extra bite of chocolate on the top and bottom…
This is a super easy pie that you can put together before a special party, you just need 2 hours refrigeration time, since it was so warm out, I would freeze it instead of refrigerating it for 2 hours next time.
It tastes like an amazing creamy Peanut Butter Cup! When you have been baking all day and need to wait for your Peanut Butter and Chocolate pie to refrigerate~ you go for a swim at the lake!
We worked up an appetite with our big swim and got a call from my BFF inviting us for dinner, she created a a BIG POT of Sausage, Kale, Potato and Bean Soup! With a crusty loaf of bread and our Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pie in hand, off we went!
I couldn’t wait to slice into this work of art while the kids played baseball in the backyard and the men played Bocce Ball. With Stevie Wonder playing in the background…it was the perfect summer day…watching the Super Moon light up over us, I am thankful for being a Spiritual Bodyguard, when it involves any kind of baking and am so lucky to have such incredible friends who enjoy food as much as I do.

- For Chocolate: Use a 2 cup Microwave safe measuring cup or bowl, microwave chocolate chips and cream for 1 minute on HIGH. Stir chips and cream until chocolate is smooth. add more cream to get a thinner consistency.
- Spread all but 3 or 4 TBSP of chocolate over the crust. Let sit for 5 minutes to set up.Next, add the filling and spread evenly. Drizzle chocolate over peanut butter filling. I had a lot of chocolate left over because my chocolate was very thick, so I covered the pie with it.

RECIPE FROM CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE AND MORE
|Our grandson was born last night. Our sixth grandchild, Baby Ray. The sun is bursting from behind the clouds and I am thinking of you Baby Ray! Since we are miles away from our family and were not able to be at his birth, I baked him a BIRTH CAKE. Happy Birthday Baby Ray. We are so excited to meet you and hold you and kiss you, sweet baby boy.This week, our group Sunday’s With Joy, is baking up a Peanut Butter Cake. I have never baked a Peanut Butter Cake and I have been missing out! Peanut Butter is such a wonderful ingredient to bake with, it is dense and flavorful. I decided to make a Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting to go with the Peanut Butter Cake, kind of like a peanut butter cup, but even better!What a great choice, the peanut butter and the chocolate combination are just delicious. Not an overwhelming flavor, very subtle. A perfect birthday cake to celebrate the birth of Baby Ray!
Ingredients for Peanut Butter Birthday Cake:
Make the Peanut Butter Birthday Cake:
The Best Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
1 1/2 cup (3 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup Ovaltine
Cream together butter, cocoa powder and salt. Butter mixture will be very thick. Turn off the mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl and add powdered sugar. Turn mixer on low and mix in powdered sugar while adding milk and vanilla extract. As the sugar incorporates, raise the speed of the mixer to beat the frosting. Beat until smooth. In a 2 cup measuring glass, stir together heavy cream and Ovaltine. Turn mixer speed to medium and pour cream mixture into frosting in a slow, steady stream, until you’ve reached your desired consistency. You may not need the full amount of Ovaltine and cream.
NOTES: Makes two 8 or 9″ cakes (or 24 cupcakes). Makes enough frosting for one 8 or 9″ 2-layer cake or 24 cupcakes. Cake will last, wrapped in the refrigerator, for up to 4 days. Frosting will last, in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. I used all-natural, creamy salted peanut butter and added a teaspoon of vanilla to the cake.
