PEANUT BUTTER & CHIP FOOTBALLS
Have you been able to find the new Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups? They are one hot commodity since they were introduced, but I've got a delicious solution for you!
These peanut butter truffles hold a delicious surprise - the secret ingredient is Lay's Ruffles Potato Chips and Fritos Corn Chips - both crushed until fine in your food processor. When added to the creamy peanut butter truffle filling, they taste very much like a Butterfinger or Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cup.
You can dip these in your choice of milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate. I pipe a wee bit of white decorator icing on top to resemble the football laces, but you can also skip that and sprinkle with crushed Frito's or your favorite colorful sprinkle.
For a change of pace in the spring, you can roll these into balls, dip in white chocolate, and decorate with red decorator icing to look like baseballs. With the Super Bowl racing towards us, it's hard to believe that spring training starts in just a few weeks!
However you decide to make these, they are a wonderful combination of sweet and salty. And what's not to love about peanut butter and chocolate? Or football?
I have to create any confusion - are these brownies? Are they cookies?
But I do believe that these are the DARKEST, fudgiest brownie cookies that I have ever made! I had some Dove Red Velvet Candies and was trying to figure out something wonderful to use them for - and these turned out better than I imagined!
Necessity is the mother of invention!
And these not only look fabulous, they are a creamy, chewy brownie cookie that is second to none.
Chocolate Cake Waffles
When I first heard about this recipe - waffles made from a cake mix, I couldn't believe how simple it seemed. And it is!
These bake up like a dream, and if you start thinking about all of the cake flavors out there right now, it will make your brain go dizzy with ideas - brown sugar maple waffles, spicy apple waffles, lemon waffles, caramel apple waffles....gah!
We've always been a fan of thick Belgian Waffles, but other chocolate recipes I have tried have been on the dry and not so sweet side. I was a little hesitant about what the texture would be like, what the taste would be like, and whether or not this would make an absolute mess of my waffle maker.
Surprise! Tender, soft and cakey waffles, with a true chocolate cake flavor. The batter spreads evenly on its own, and cook evenly and quickly. We were pulling these off the waffle maker every few minutes to surrender to waiting plates.
You could serve these for breakfast (natch) or even as a dessert waffle. Top with a drizzle of whatever syrup compliments your waffle flavor - raspberry or chocolate drizzled on chocolate cake waffles, maple syrup on maple brown sugar waffles, a smear of lemon curd and blueberry syrup on lemon waffles - the possibilities are endless!
Top with fresh whipped cream, fresh berries, ice cream, a dusting of powdered sugar - so many ideas!
I'm thinking these will make a wonderful Valentine's Day surprise in a month!
Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup
One of the most horrible feelings for a mom is having sick little ones! And no matter how old they are, they are always our little ones, especially when they don't feel good!
There is nothing out there that can beat a bowl of warm, homemade chicken noodle soup! Warm, flavorful and savory broth, tender chicken and carrots, and the perfect seasoning make this our favorite recipe for feeling better!
My heart absolutely melted this week when my oldest told me that she could never leave home - because who would make her chicken noodle soup when she was sick? Yup, melted my heart!
