Salted Peanut Chews Recipe

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

salted-peanut-chews-1

From the first moment I saw these sticky, gooey, creamy, chewy gems on Michelle’s site, Brown Eyed Baker, I knew that I would have to make them.  There wasn’t a doubt in my mind.  And, of course I also knew that I would have to share them with you, in case you missed them over at Michelle’s.  How could I not?   If I didn’t, I couldn’t live with myself, because these Salted Peanut Chews are that good.    Mind-numbingly good, actually.  They deserve to be shared with the world – for the good of all mankind!

Think of Salted Peanut Chews as a sort of sophisticated riff on Rice Krispies Treats.  I know I just posted another Rice Krispies Treats-related recipe, but I happen to currently be obsessed with them.  Besides, these are very different – and they actually contain Rice Krispies.   They’re layered bars with a buttery, brown sugar base, covered with oozey, melted marshmallows and finished off with a sinfully rich peanut butter, rice krispies and salted peanut topping.  Need I say more?  read more >>

Next Sunday is not just any old Sunday.  It’s Super Bowl Sunday!  If you’re anything like me, by kick-off time you’ll have a houseful of hungry football fans who need food.  And it had better be good food too.  Food-deprived, beer-soaked, Super Bowl revelers can be a dangerous thing!  …

TWD:  Not-Just-For-Thanksgiving Cranberry Shortbread Cake

Tuesday, November 9, 201021 Comments

In the three years that I have owned Dorie’s Baking: From My Home to Yours, her Cranberry Shortbread Cake flew completely under my radar.  I probably never would have noticed it, much less baked it, if it hadn’t been this weeks TWD pick.  Why?  Well, first of all, because …

LA TAVOLA DELLA MIA FAMIGLIA:  BRUTTI MA BUONI

Sunday, October 24, 201023 Comments

One of the things I love about native Italians is that they say what they mean, and they don’t mince words.  Take these cookies, for instance.  They’re called Brutti ma Buoni, which means “ugly, but good”.  Don’t you love it?  These unassuming, delicate little puffs of meringue studded with …

I have a terrible cold and I feel like crap, so this post is going to be short and “sweet”.  This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is Dulce de Leche Duos, selected by Jodie from Beansy Loves Cake.  Basically, they are sandwich cookies that contain dulce de leche right …

CANDIED BACON-CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES

Wednesday, February 17, 201056 Comments

I’ve always considered myself to to be a hip and trendy kind of girl, especially when I was in my twenties.  As you get older, though, it gets a little harder to pull it off.  Still, I try to keep up with the times.  Having a sixteen year old …

The other day, I was frantically racing strolling down the baking aisle at the market when I saw these Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips by Andes.  You know Andes, don’t you?  They’re the ones that make those little Crème de Menthe chocolates that you get at many restaurants along with …

TWD: Cafe Volcano Cookies (aka Great Personality Cookies)

Tuesday, December 15, 200926 Comments

I remember when I was in high school, my mother once tried to convince me to go out with the dorky son of one of her bridge buddies.  “What does he look like?” I asked.  She replied, “Looks aren’t everything.  He’s got such a great personality!” I knew I …

TWD: Lemon Sables

Tuesday, December 8, 200925 Comments

I call this week’s TWD recipe the Clark Kent of cookies.  These sables appear to be unassuming little wallflowers of a cookie.  Yet, one bite is all it takes to realize that they are quite special.  Sables are basically a butter cookie.  While they are sumptuously rich and buttery, …
