Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Bark

You favorite combination of peanut butter and chocolate gets a third party – bacon! Salty and sweet is never a bad thing.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bacon Bark 1

Today in college football, Ohio State plays Penn State and although it is not a rivalry it’s close enough to make it a big game regardless of each teams ranking. And it just so happens to also be National Greasy Foods Day, which is perfect for football. But since I like to celebrate my Saturdays with peanut butter and chocolate in the spirit of my buckeyes, I made a peanut butter and chocolate treat that incorporated the best greasy food item ever – bacon! After falling in love with the peanut butter bacon burger this was bound to happen. It’s not like I haven’t made cupcakes and cookies with bacon before. It is sweet and salty goodness.

Last but not least, the icing on the cake for today is my arrival in Seattle! I am visiting my friend Chip who recently moved there and then the next couple days I am going hog wild with Peabody (Culinary Concoctions by Peabody) and Kita (Pass the Sushi/Girl Carnivore)! It shall be full of deliciousness and merriment. And for a fun story for how this trip came to be, check out Peabody’s post.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Dark chocolate peanut butter cupcakes with dark chocolate peanut butter frosting. As dangerous as they sound especially in the deceptively innocent mini size. 

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Last year during football season I made white chocolate peanut butter mini cupcakes and they were super addictive. Since today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day I decided to revisit that recipe using dark chocolate peanut butter. It’s the dark-side equivalent of the more innocent looking white chocolate peanut butter cupcakes, but equally as sinful. That’s why I made them minis so you can eat 4 or 5 of them without feeling guilty. Oh the deception!

Apple Cinnamon Peanut Butter Bagel Bites

Apples, cinnamon, and peanut butter make for a delicious and easy snack. Served on a toasted mini bagel.

Apple Cinnamon Peanut Butter Bagel Bites

How many of you live in or around Cleveland, OH? Or maybe visit there every now and then? Heck if you just like board games and beer, hear me out. My friends are opening Cleveland’s first board game cafe called Tabletop Board Game Cafe. Tabletop will feature over 1000 board games, weekly trivia night, monthly diy design sessions in their maker space, and will be located in Ohio City. Cool right? If you don’t believe me check out the video on their Kickstarter to find out more and even play a role in putting the finishing touches on their cafe.

I have been helping them out by trying out various smoothie and bagel bite recipes for their menu. This recipe is yet another and although it’s not quite as exciting as some that I made in the past, there’s no denying apples, cinnamon, and crunchy peanut butter.

Homemade Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters

You favorite Nashville candy can now be made at home. These peanut butter goo goo clusters taste like buckeye truffles with crunchy peanuts.

Homemade Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters

If you lived in or near Nashville, TN you have heard of Goo Goo Clusters. The traditional one is made with marshmallow, caramel, and peanuts which is covered in milk chocolate. As delicious as that sounds, being a smart company they also made a peanut butter version which of course wins my heart every time.

I’m not sure how they make their peanut butter Goo Goo Cluster but I used my buckeye candy recipe as the basis for this one. Peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar, and graham cracker crumbs come together to make the peanut butter discs which then have peanuts pressed into them before being dunked in milk chocolate. Simple as that!

Buckeye Granola Bites

These healthy peanut butter granola bites are dipped in dark chocolate to resemble buckeyes. They are a snacky, healthier version of the popular buckeye candies.

Buckeye Granola BItes

Today is yet another Buckeye football Saturday and therefore PB+Choc Saturday. I am actually tailgating today, but oddly enough NOT for the Ohio State game. Some friends are in town this weekend for the UT-Florida game and I will be joining them for the adventure! I have never tailgated at a game where I did not have a sworn allegiance so I’m just along for the ride.

While I will wear some orange to join in the spirit of the day, I may layer some Ohio state gear in there as well since both games are at the same time. With highs barely reaching 60 today (wasn’t it 80 on yesterday?) no one can blame me for layering. Besides, I plan on bringing these granola bites along just in case they need persuasion. They resemble buckeye candies but are healthier (even more than my healthier buckeyes), made with oats, peanuts, dates (or raisins), and honey.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Yogurt Covered Pretzels

It’s another #PBChocSat and #10DaysofTailgate mash up! And yet again another pretzel combination. I did not do that on purpose but evidently I have been craving the sweet and salty combo of peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate. Thankfully that goes well with tailgating.

Today’s sweet treat may not be considered a healthy option but it is made with Greek yogurt. Any health benefits from the yogurt is cancelled out with the copious amounts of sugar used to create the coating. But feel free to convince yourself that they are not as bad for you, because that’s what I did as I nearly devoured the entire stock of them in one sitting.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Brownies #10DaysofTailgate

Play dress up with your favorite brownie mix. Add peanut butter morsels, peanut butter frosting, and chocolate covered pretzels on top! But shh don’t tell anyone it’s from a box – no one has to know.

In case you didn’t guess by the logo above, today marks the kickoff of #10DaysofTailgate which means lots of tailgating worthy recipes coming to a computer near you for the next 10 days. With over 20 bloggers involved and a HUGE giveaway thanks to our gracious sponsors this event is one you don’t want to miss. After you’ve checked out today’s recipes be sure to CLICK HERE giveaway to be directed to the giveaway post!

Since today is Saturday, it also means it is PB+Choc Saturday in honor of The Ohio State Buckeyes and the delicious peanut butter and chocolate Buckeye candies, so my kick-off recipe follows as such with peanut butter and chocolately goodness in the form of a brownie so good looking you won’t believe how easy it is to make. All you need is a box of brownie mix (and the ingredients indicated on the box), peanut butter morsels, peanut butter, and chocolate covered pretzels.

Yep those 4 things make these gorgeous brownies and they definitely will be a hit at any tailgate regardless of team allegiances (which is why I refrained from calling them Buckeye Brownies, although it helped that I already had a recipe for Buckeye Brownies). The peanut butter morsels are mixed into the brownie batter for some added fun, then once baked and cooled, peanut butter straight out of the jar is spread on top and garnished with chopped chocolate covered pretzels. That’s how you dress up boxed brownie mix!

Mini Reese’s-Oreo Cheesecakes

Reese’s and Oreo lovers unite! These mini Reese’s-Oreo cheesecakes not only have bits of peanut butter cup Oreo in them, but also as the crust. Top it off with a peanut butter-chocolate ganache.

Mini Reeses-Oreo Cheesecakes 1

As you may have noticed I love trying all the different kinds of Oreos they come out with. I stand by my belief that peanut butter Oreos were the best flavor ever. As such when I spotted the Reese’s peanut butter cup ones they jumped into my shopping basket. Their filling is half chocolate/half peanut butter giving them the flavor of a peanut butter cup sandwiched between chocolate Oreo cookies.

When I decided to chop them up and mix them into cheesecake I thought about making the cheesecake peanut butter flavored, but instead let the Oreos shine through on their own (not that I would’ve argued with more peanut butter). With Oreos as the crust, pieces in the cheesecake, and a peanut butter-chocolate ganache there’s nothing missing.

Swag Bars

The combination of sweet and salty never gets old. Try these no-bake peanut butter swag bars. Sweet, chewy, and crunchy all in one.

Swag Bars 2

For those of us still battling the summer heat, I have a no-bake peanut butter and chocolate recipe for you this fine Saturday. This recipe reminds me of a sweeter version of no-bake granola bars made with crushed bran cereal instead of oats. I substituted some of the corn syrup with honey but I bet it would’ve worked with all honey if you would like to avoid corn syrup altogether. The result is a sweet, chewy, and crunchy peanut butter treat.

Are you watching any college football today? I’ll be cheering on Michigan State against Oregon (normally I like Oregon but not when they play the Big 10), and of course Ohio State against Virginia Tech.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cake

This perfectly chewy peanut butter cookie cake is a crowd pleaser. With chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups and chocolate frosting how could it not be?

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookie Cake 1

It’s finally here! The first game of the Ohio State Buckeyes football season. I cannot help but be excited even though we are missing our star QB. After all, teams are made of more than one person. However the game I am most interested in today is Wisconsin vs LSU. Go Big 10! But since I don’t find badgers to be an appetizing dessert, I decided to stick with the buckeye peanut butter and chocolate theme. Which means today is the first PB+Choc Saturday of the season!

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookie Cake 3

Regardless of your allegiances you can still enjoy a peanut butter and chocolate dessert. This cookie cake is a peanut butter and chocolate lover’s dream. Peanut butter cookie dough with chopped Reese’s cups, and topped with chocolate frosting. And it happens to be perfectly chewy which is how all cookie-things should be, in my opinion.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookie Cake 2

In other news, I am off to Gatlinburg this weekend with Bob, Christina, and Dave whom are in town visiting! I scouted out all the free/random things to do this weekend and it may contain things such as hiking, BYOB/lawn chair blues/rock/folk concerts, fireworks, salt and pepper shaker museum, hillbilly golf, and maybe some outlet shopping.
