Showering has been a frequent celebration these last weeks. Baby Showering, that is. Real showers? Forget it. It was single-momming it while my youth pastor hubby rocked it with 70+ middle school students at camp. It was touch and go, my friends. Showers were a vacation- the laughable goal was to entertain two squirrelly boys, eat semi-healthy, and stay sane. Priorities. And …
All this peanut butter and chocolate talk got me hungry, so the other night after our date, as all fabulous dates should end, dessert beckoned and we wound up at the store. Into the cart jumped these decadent essentials, and back home, I let our oldest stay up late for a special post-date dessert-making sesh.
You’re in for a treat. This peanut butter dessert is easy peasy and even more fun to make with a cute assistant dessert helper at your side 🙂
It’s been said before, and I won’t shy aware from the truth…
Every morning I wake thinking about dessert.
As in, hmmm… what treats are destined for today? Throughout the entire day.
You do realize dessert was not intended only to follow dinner? No -a morsel of chocolate after cereal, a bite of brownie following a caprese panini lunch, why, it really is the right thing to do! After dinner of bbq chicken salad, the chopped peppers and jicama shavings colorful and crunchy- by all means, bring on the peanut butter and chocolate! Don’t matter if it’s on a sundae, the main ingredients in truffles, or tucked inside the other for a bite-size nugget of love, peanut butter and chocolate is my weakness!
If there was one food I could not live without, dessert aside, it would hands down be peanut butter! Let’s be honest, the stuff is magic spread. When I studied abroad in Spain my junior summer of college, I literally packed two Costco size jars of peanut butter in my suitcase because rumor had it, Sevilla didn’t carry p.b. Between sampling and savoring every Spanish dish possible, – paella, chocolate and churros, rice anything… peanut butter snuck it’s way back to my soul.
