Peanut Butter & Chocolate Pie

It’s pretty hard to top the combination of peanut butter and chocolate in my book.  This Peanut Butter & Chocolate Pie is so rich and delicious, and it is a great dessert to serve to guests.  There’s a thin pure chocolate layer topped with a creamy peanut butter filling, and to top it all off, add even more chocolate and some whipped cream.

Grandma Carol’s Peanut Butter Fudge

I have shared a recipe for peanut butter fudge once before, but that was before my Grandma Carol’s recipe turned up after being lost for awhile!  I was so happy when my mom told me she had it. This is the smoothest, most peanut-buttery fudge you will ever taste.  Make a batch for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, because nothing says I love you quite like this delicious treat!

Chubby Hubby Truffles

Last Valentine’s Day, I featured a sweet & salty peanut butter cookie.  This year, I am again featuring the peanut butter/pretzel/chocolate combination with these Chubby Hubby Truffles. These are peanut butter pretzel bites that are so easy to make.  Thinking about giving candy for Valentine’s Day?  Making the candy yourself would make your gift just that much more special.  If the sweet/salty combination isn’t your thing, try some chocolate truffles instead!

Chocolate Covered Popcorn

Chocolate Covered Popcorn is another quick and easy snack that doesn’t involve turning on the oven… my favorite kind of recipe in the hot summer months!  This isn’t just a summer recipe, though.  You can customize it for any time of the year.  Use holiday-colored candies to make it festive.  Add your favorite things in, like pretzels or almonds.  It can be as simple or as complex as you like.  Regardless, it will be totally addicting and delicious.

No Bake Peanut Butter Squares

Do you have an oven that heats up your entire kitchen (or house?!) when you use it?  I do.  I try hard to keep it turned off during the hot summer months, but sometimes the craving for a cookie/sweet is just too much!  However, with no-bake recipes like these No Bake Peanut Butter Squares, you’ll forget about running your oven for at least 30 minutes to bake cookies.  My favorite thing about these squares is that they taste so similar to Reese’s cups.  Trust me… You have got to try these peanut butter and chocolate treats soon!

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Muffins

Here’s another muffin recipe I think you’ll love…  Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Muffins.  The muffins themselves are slightly sweet & mildly peanut buttery, but the addition of chocolate & peanut butter chips take them over the top!  They might not be the healthiest muffins you’ll find, but they are definitely among the tastiest.

No-Bake Granola Bites

We love granola in this house.  In pretty much every form possible.  Plain ol’ granola for sprinkling on yogurt… Even in bars.  This is an all-new way to enjoy granola for us: in bites!  I made these No-Bake Granola Bites to be a healthy snack for my 2 1/2 year old (okay, okay… for me too!).  My husband ate one and said, “I bet these would be good dipped in chocolate.”  He was SO right!
