Banana Peanut Butter Cup Muffins Revisit

The only thing that could possibly make banana muffins even more delicious? Adding peanut butter and chocolate.

Today’s the day! The inaugural College Football Playoffs starts with match ups between Oregon and Florida State and more importantly Ohio State and Alabama! As my friend Christina put it so well, I’m quivering with excitement and anticipation. I hope Ohio State makes the Big Ten proud. With 10 of the 14 teams in the conference going into bowl games, every single one is listed as the underdog and there have already been upsets. Then before our game begins today, Wisconsin will be taking on Auburn, Michigan State plays Baylor, and Minnesota plays Missouri. It’s a big day for the Big Ten conference!

Hard to believe that a year ago today I formally graduated with my PhD. Technically I acquired the title of “Dr.” 3 months prior in September when I defended my dissertation but December 13, 2013 is when I wore the fancy robe and got my giant degree (literally it’s huge). And today I am celebrating yet another graduation. No not another of my own (I haven’t been going to school in secret for the past year). My cousin Alex is graduating from Physician Assistant school!

To mark this momentous occasion I’ve decided to lay on some more news. Leading up to today, I have posted clues (1/2/3/4) on Twitter but no one tweeted any guesses. Either the clues were much too vague or no one saw them (I’m betting on the latter). I also dropped another hint on Thanksgiving when I commented about something I was looking forward to and a couple of you figured it out…

…what do you think?

Cone Head Cupcakes with Ice Cream Frosting

Have some fun with your vanilla cupcakes and turn them into adorable cone head cupcakes with frosting that looks and taste like an ice cream sundae.

Cone Head Cupcakes with Ice Cream Frosting 1

National Cupcake Day is exactly one week from today! In an effort to prepare you, 26 food bloggers including myself have banded together to share cupcake recipes today. I took the opportunity to whip up a cupcake creation that I have been meaning to make ever since I thought of it.

Cone Head Cupcakes with Ice Cream Frosting 3

You know the adorable cone head ice cream sundae at Friendly’s? Well I recreated it in cupcake form! A vanilla cupcake is topped with a literal scoop if buttercream frosting made with ice cream and decorated with a chocolate dipped waffle cone, miniature Reese’s pieces, and whipped cream. Even if you’ve never heard of or had a cone head ice cream sundae, you won’t be able to resist these little guys.

Leftover Halloween Candy Layer Bars

Use up your leftover Halloween candy with these magic layer bars. Any combination of chocolate candy will work. You can even add candy corn if you so desire.

Leftover Halloween Candy Layer Bars

When was the last time you bought the exact amount of candy needed to meet the demands of all the trick-or-treaters that ring your door bell on Halloween? Chances are you either buy too little or too much, with most people landing on the side with excess. Other than picking out all your favorites to hoard, what are you going to do with it all? I say throw it all together and bake it into one glorious mess. With the help of a graham cracker crust and more sugar in the form of sweetened condensed milk this dream is a reality. I introduce to you the leftover Halloween candy bar layer bars. Use whatever assortment you have. In my case it was Reese’s peanut butter cups, plain M&Ms, peanut M&Ms, Crunch, Twix, Kit Kats, Almond Joys, Milky Ways, Snickers, and Hershey’s cookies ‘n’ creme bars. Since 7-layer bars have chocolate, nuts, and coconut I figured that diverse candy selection covered it all with a little extra.

White Chocolate Reese's Pumpkin Blondies 2

If you think the combination of pumpkin and peanut butter is weird, well then I am here to prove you wrong. The phrase “don’t knock it ’til you try it” definitely applies here. I saw the light a year ago when I first tried this combo in pumpkin peanut butter cups. Rich pumpkin, salty-peanut butter, and sweet chocolate. I see no problems here. Even bloggers such as Jenny (Picky Palate), Sommer (A Spicy Perspective), and Jessica (How Sweet It Is) are in on the pumpkin+peanut butter party so why arn’t you?

Sadly it took me another year to dabble with this combination of flavors again but it’s back thanks to the Reese’s orange-white chocolate pumpkin-shaped cups. You could of also use regular white chocolate Reese’s cups but the pumpkin ones are perfect for the season. I chopped them up and mixed them into the pumpkin blondie batter and then also pressed some into the top as well to make use of their cute shape.

Reese’s Oreo Chocolate Cake with Funfetti Cookie Dough Filling

Ever have trouble deciding on your favorite kind of cake? Combine them all in one with Reese’s, Oreos, Funfetti, and cookie dough.

Reese's Oreo Chocolate Cake with Funfetti Cookie Dough Filling 3

Remember when I told you how most of my friends (and myself) are turning 30 in the next 12 months? Well today marks my friend Maggie’s 30th birthday! Last year she made the wild request for her birthday dessert to include cheesecake, cookie dough, funfetti and Oreos and you better believe I delivered with what I dubbed birthday explosion mini cheesecakes. This year however she was a bit stumped as last years dessert topped anything should could have ever imagined. She did finally challenge me by requesting the same combination plus Reese’s peanut butter cups. It took me lots of brainstorming to finally decide on what to make.

Reese's Oreo Chocolate Cake with Funfetti Cookie Dough Filling 1

This cake should be named “All of Maggie’s Favorite Things”. It is a chocolate cake with chopped Reese’s and Oreos mixed in, Funfetti cookie dough filling, chocolate ganache, Funfetti frosting, and more Reese’s and Oreos on top. Now that’s a birthday cake! I fear for her 31st birthday. We may need to regress to simpler ideas.

What is your ideal birthday dessert?

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.

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?

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.

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.

Peanut Butter Birthday Bites

Funfettinutter is the combination of funfetti and peanut butter. If you have not tried it, you are missing out! Chewy peanut butter cookies are topped with funfetti frosting, chocolate ganache, chopped peanut butter cups and sprinkles!

Peanut Butter Birthday Bites 1

Happy birthday to me!!! Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday TO ME!!!

In case you didn’t notice today is my birthday (it also happens to be Amy’s birthday of Fearless Homemaker). I turn 29 today today which means the next 365 days are the last of my twenties. For my birthday weekend my friend Christina visited and during all of our hiking and adventuring we have relived memories from our college years – our early twenties. It seemed perfect that she would be with me to celebrate the end of my twenties after being a partner-in-crime throughout all the others and I couldn’t be more excited and happy for her to be here this weekend. Later today we are seeing Spamalot!

In honor of my birthday I yet again combined two of my favorite things – peanut butter and funfetti. Chewy peanut butter cookies are topped off with a funfetti cake batter frosting which is then adorned with chocolate ganache and chopped mini Reese’s peanut butter cups. And more sprinkles. If you think peanut butter and funfetti don’t belong together then you obviously have never tried it. Funfettinutter for the win! It may be not a single serving recipe for Sunday, but it’s my birthday and I can have all the servings I want.

P.S. It is also Star Wars Day – may the fourth be with you! Oh yea that’s right be jealous of my birthday.
