My Dentist's Wallet Loves Me


I remember one birthday party my sister and I went to when we were still young.
I still can't believe what we took as a gift. . . 
the biggest bag with every assortment of candy you can even try to imagine.
I remember joking with our friend's mom
Don't send us the dentist bill.

I literally have the worst sweet tooth in the world.
Most especially chocolate.
And peanut butter.
And when Pinterest -- God bless Pinterest
leaves my heart hopeful over the prospect of homemade versions of my
favorite artery-clogging candies,
I get my bloomin' bum into the kitchen and get started.


No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
{adapted from here}
1 cup butter melted

2 cups graham cracker crumbs 
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup + 4 tablespoons peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Chocolate Candy Coating

Mix first 5 ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl 
Press into a parchment lined pan
{I used a round cake pan}
Melt enough chocolate candy coating to cover the peanut butter mix
Refrigerate until solid

Cut into chunks and literally try not to consume like a mad woman




I love this candy by itself.
I love this candy with fresh strawberries.
I love this candy for breakfast.
I love this candy for lunch.
I love this candy for dinner.
I love this candy for a midnight snack.

I do not love this candy on my hips.
Maybe I need one more piece to round out the edges. . . 


Happy Hump Day, Lovelies.
Two more early mornings for me.
Then weeeek- eeend!

  11. Haha, I feel like that middle section about loving them for lunch, dinner, etc. has potential as a sweets-lover's riff on Green Eggs & Ham. (I love to taste them on my tongue, but not to see them pad my bum...) They look delicious!
