Peanut Butter Chocolate Caramel Corn

Not so long  I was chatting with a co-worker about how peanut butter and chocolate goes so well together.  As we chatted we came up with this combination for a treat.  I came home and made and it was delicious, if I say so myself.  This recipe really doesn't have any measurements as I just put things together but hopefully you will get the idea.
I do have to tell you a story, as I was making this, I place the caramel bits in a cup to melt in the microwave. I had set it first for 30 seconds and it didn't even come close to melting them, they were still hard.  So I put them on again for 2 minutes ~ Thinking that I would check them about every 30 seconds.  I was busy pouring the melted chocolate and drizzling the the peanut butter spread over the popcorn and snitching a kernel or two to taste that I forgot about the caramels in the microwave....  I am sure that you can imagine what happened.  The next thing I knew was that the whole kitchen smelt like it was burning.  The caramel was  burnt to a crisp.  The moral of the story is that when you are melting something you should set the time for short intervals so you remember to check it often.

The peanut butter spread I used was Der Dutchman Peanut Butter Spread.

Peanut Butter Cookies.

I hadn't made peanut butter cookies for a long, long time.
It is probably a good thing, because I forgot how addicting they are.

Do you like your cookies soft  or hard and crunchy?
I let mine bake longer, and also I let them sit on the cupboard overnight
 so today they were hard and crunchy...
Good coffee dipping cookies.
That is if I drank coffee anymore.. Dipping cookies in tea is just not the same.

Peanut Butter Cookies

adapted from a small town cookbook that I have had for years~ St. Theresa's Treats

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup peanut butter ~ I used my Canadian Kraft Peanut Butter.
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
extra sugar to roll cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix flours, baking soda and salt together and set aside.  In bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar and butter.  Mix well, add peanut butter and continue to mix. Mix in eggs.  Once all these ingredients are mixed add vanilla and then dry ingredients.  Once everything is mixed well, roll into balls.  Roll balls in sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet or use a baking mat on your cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.
  I baked mine for 14 minutes and they came out crunchy, 10 minutes would make them soft. Enjoy.  I bet you can't eat just one.

The next time I make them I am going to use more whole wheat flour and less white flour... I also  didn't put the fork marks in my cookies...

Butterscotch Confetti Squares

Last week as I was going through all the wonderful recipes that were linked up on our Linky Party, I came to a blast in my past recipe.  I had forgotten about this one and haven't made it for years.  It was one of my favorite squares.... something that I would make when I felt down and needed a pick me up.  Something to remind me of home and I am not even sure why as I don't remember them ever being made at home but they were always at any gatherings... showers, parties and just get-togethers.

I haven't made these for years, probably because my husband has a peanut allergy, but I decided to make them now.... I would hide them and he will never know that they are around. :)  They will just be for me.... all mine. And as long as you don't break the secret, I will have them all to myself.

I also took out my good peanut butter for them.  The jar that I hide in the pantry cupboard, the one that only I know where it is.  My Canadian Kraft peanut butter, yes they are going to be good.

This recipe was found All is amazing, but as all the recipes I have shared... this one I do differently and here is how I make them.  I apologize my pictures didn't turn out very good.  So I made these again today so that I could maybe get some better pictures....

                                                             Butterscotch Confetti Squares
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 bag butterscotch chips
3/4 bag of marshmallows (10 ounce bag)- either white or coloured
3/4 cup sweetened coconut (optional)
1/4  cup diced peanuts (optional)
1/4 cup toffee bits (optional)

In a large bowl melt butter, peanut butter and butterscotch chips in the microwave.  I do 30 seconds to 1 minute interval and stir in between... If all the chips don't all melt, that's ok, I like the little bits of butterscotch in my squares
Add miniature marshmallows, coconut, peanuts and toffee bits if you want.  The marshmallows may melt slightly.  Once it is all mixed, spread in greased 8 X 8 pan and place in fridge until firm.  Cut in squares and enjoy... And try not to eat the whole pan.

spread in pan and wait until firm... this is the hard part!

Enjoy! I bet you can't eat just one!
