So I am about a day late, dollar short with blogging this semester. And I believe I have whined about the busy schedule that I have had this semester about a zillion times. I mean down right exhausting! Though, I have just loved this semester--as crazy as that sounds. I LOVED teaching this semester, my class was sooo sweet and fun to work with, and I LOVE my placement- and each day reminds me just how much I love working with kids. Well- on the plus side of dropping off from blogging- I have so much to share with you all! :) I will break it up in the different posts- to spread out the fun ;)
Last Saturday, I had a wonderful Crawfish Boil get together with my friends at the dog park, which always makes for a fun time! The hubby was a bit bummed, because he does not like Crawfish, so he had miscellaneous snack foods to munch on, which I was not too bad. I
For the crawfish boil I decided to make these Peanut Butter S'more Bars that I saw on Pinterest. Lately I have noticed that I really enjoy the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Plus, I always love trying different twists to a classic favorite (S'mores). Ninja was really excited that I chose to make this, because I ended up emptying out the peanut butter jar which meant he got to lick the jar clean :) before it got thrown out. He loves those lucky days when he actually gets something out of the kitchen! And boy does he recognize the scent of peanut butter! :) Gotta love that Ninja face!
Anywhoo, I decided to make these, which in hindsight probably was not the best decision. You see, the recipe calls for using marshmallow fluff, which is fine, when refrigerated Sadly, I made these for a Crawfish boil where the food needed to be left out so that people could grab and enjoy. And its April in College Station, Texas- which makes for some pretty warm weather. #dessert fail. Do not get me wrong, these bars came out delicious. It could be that I am a sucker for both S'mores and the peanut butter-chocolate combination, but regardless they were yum! The fail was that after about 30 minutes they fluff began to melt. :( Which was still yummy but made for some messy eating). Bottom line- make these when they can be refrigerated or stuffed in your mouth immediately (which is not hard because they are awesome) but not for a potluck :)
