Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars


I was on Facebook again and another recipe came up in my feed….I know…I probably need to quit Facebook or I am going to gain weight…or Hubby will.

Anyway this recipe is AMAZING!  The bars are rich though but totally yummy.  I would put these on your list of bars to make and take that are easy yet sure to impress.

They aren’t fabulous looking but the taste makes up for the looks.  I did loose the source of the recipe.  My apologies.  If someone knows the link to the original recipe please pass it on to me.

Here’s the recipe.

2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 3/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped peanuts – Hubby’s not a peanut eater so I left these out.
1 cup (6 oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 large egg, beaten
1 (14 oz.) can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

HEAT oven to 350°F. Combine oats, brown sugar, flour, baking powder and baking soda in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles fine crumbs. (I just put it in my Kitchen Aide mixer and it was fine) Stir in peanuts.
RESERVE 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture. Stir egg into remaining crumb mixture. Press onto bottom of 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
BAKE 15 minutes.
STIR together sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter in small bowl until well combined. Pour evenly over partially baked crust.
STIR together reserved crumb mixture and chocolate chips. Sprinkle evenly over peanut butter layer.
BAKE an additional 15 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars

There you have it.  Like I said…TOTALLY YUMMY!!

Apple Donuts


I have lots of recipe pages that show up on my Facebook feed and I admit it- sometimes I have trouble resisting the recipes.  I especially have trouble if it’s easy, I have the ingredients and I think the kids might like it.

That’s what prompted me to try these Apple Donuts…They look good don’t they?

It is super simple.  Open a pack of refrigerator crescent rolls.  Unroll them and cut in half.  Wind a strip around a cored apple ring and bake.  How simple -right?


I really liked them and thought the kids would too….From the kids they got medium reviews.  My picky one stayed picky.  My one who eats everything gobbled them down and the kids in the middle stayed in the middle.

I did like them and I really think it would be fun to make with older school aged kids.  My littles that I made them with were too little to figure out the wrapping.


The original recipe suggested that caramel sauce could be drizzled over the top when finished baking…that would be extra yummy but I didn’t have any and they were still good.

You can find the original recipe here.

If you’re like’ll have to try them too!
