Peanut Butter Cups!

Well isn't it always the way; you get all these great ideas from all these wonderful bloggers out there and then you get bogged down and don't know what recipe to try next. Such was the case tonight. I was so pumped up about trying something new and had narrowed my list down to about four different "Desert/Sweet" type recipes, that by the time I went shopping, got home, sorted everything out, I was like "what have I let myself in for" lol!

So I went with the easiest on my list, (remember I am very much new to all of this) and so decided on making Peanut Butter Cups! The great news about this recipe for me was that if I messed up, oh well, simple enough for a Do-over! Plus, as I have already purchased all the ingredients for the other recipes, I can tackle them at my leisure without all the pressure! This is supposed to be a fun adventure for me after all.

So I hope you enjoy. This really is super easy and so yummy! Go on, have a go and see for yourself.

I came across this recipe by the way on the FoodBeast.com website (Thank you)!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

(recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart)

You will need:

4 ounces white chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (I used Smucker’s as suggested on the FoodBeast site)
12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I used the Organic Tom Thumb brand)
2 tablespoons unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped

Directions:
Line two 12-cup mini muffin pans with paper liners; set aside.

Now I have to admit I didn't have any mini muffin pans so went with the regular size ones and made about 8 bigger Peanut Butter Cups. What mine looked like when layered in their cups -->

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate and peanut butter. Microwave, until almost melted, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Set aside to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, place semisweet chocolate in another microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave, stirring once or twice, until almost melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

Dividing evenly, use a spoon to layer semisweet chocolate and peanut butter mixture into liners, beginning and ending with chocolate; sprinkle with peanuts.
And your done!



One of these bad boys with a nice glass of Bailey's, yum yum!

Deviled Eggs - House Special!

Well I have to tell you that this recipe was cause of some contention in our home as this is my hubbies own personal recipe! However in the spirit of Memorial day weekend and "for the greater good", (Chant - the greater good - Hot Fuzz reference lol), I have permission to share; you are special indeed!

So for this recipe I used the following:

1 Dozen Eggs.
1 Tablespoon of Mayonnaise.
1/2 Tablespoon of Caesar Dressing.
1/2 Tablespoon of Ranch Dressing.
1 Teaspoon of chopped/minced Dill Pickles, reserve 1 teaspoon of   
juice.
1/2 Teaspoon of Mustard, we use yellow mustard.
1/2 Teaspoon of White Vinegar.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Paprika for later, to sprinkle over finished Deviled Eggs.


Boil your eggs. When ready, pop the eggs into a bowl of iced water. This prevents the egg yokes getting that blueish color around the edges. Shell the eggs, then slice them in half. Pop out the yellow yokes into a separate bowl  and place your empty halved egg whites onto a tray. Cover these and place in…
