TLAIFF! Thank the Lord Almighty that it is finally Friday! Do you have big weekend plans? Not me! My weekend is going to be filled with rest and relaxation, hopefully recharging my batteries.
Due to a busy week I have an abbreviated Favorites list. Last night was our PTA meeting and I whipped up a quick cookie bar to bring. The recipe for chocolate peanut butter cookie bars can be found at the end.
Have a WONDERFUL weekend! xo
I LOVE this idea! They are these little libraries you can build and have outside your home, office, school. The books in it are free. Look and see if there is a Little Free Library near you!
2. DRIVE THRU PRANK VIDEO
This guy makes a car seat costume so it looks like there is no one operating the car. It made me laugh so hard. I love a good prank.
3. NEIL YOUNG SINGS “FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR” THEME SONG ON JIMMY FALLON
Finally a lid for your mason jar. I have wanted one of these for over a year now. I think a little knitted or crocheted sleeve over your mason jar would be the perfect accessory for this lid. Carry your hot beverages without burning your hands. Clever!
5. HOMEMADE BREAD
This Oat Nut Bread from Baking Bites (have a looksee there are lots of other yummy looking recipes) looks and sounds wonderful. I can’t wait to give it a try this weekend since my store bought loaf of Oat Nut Bread is almost gone. I did resolve to bake more bread this year.
What are some of your favorite finds this week?
Here’s a quick recipe for you to make this weekend. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars. I was lazy and didn’t have the time or energy to bake cookies so all the dough got pressed into a 9 x 13 baking pan and these bars were formed. These are subtly chocolatey and not in your face chocolate like a brownie. I hope you enjoy them!
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE BARS
2 sticks butter, soften
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup white sugar
1-3 ounce package sugar free chocolate instant pudding
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups Reece’s peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In mixer beat on medium speed butter, sugars, pudding and vanilla until blended. Add eggs and mix well. Add flour and soda in small batches until all incorporated. Stir in chips by hand.
Press dough into a greased 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
If you want to make these into cookies. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
