Well these are cooling. I accidentally made 45 servings so they will be smaller serving sizes, but that is ok. I can give more to the baristas. I'll give the one who requested it his own plate of them.

I think the brownies are next!

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BARS
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) Land o Lakes Margerine, softened (I use whatever brand I have)
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter (can also use smooth if you prefer)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 T. sugar (granulated or the coarse raw kind works great - not confectioners)
35 milk chocolate kisses (Hersheys)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13x9 baking pan with foil leaving a 1-inch overhang and set it aside.

Combine brown sugar, margarine, and peanut butter in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often,until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low and add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.

Pat dough into prepared pan. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until a golden brown. Immediately press evenly spaced chocolate candies into warm bars. Cool Completely. Remove bars from pan using the edges of foil to lift. Cut into bars - cutting between the candies. Makes 35 bars.

Get out some cold milk and dive in!!!

Weirdo, I know... LOL. I have no idea what I am going to do with all of that. My barista asked me if I was going to make chocolate margaritas.... nope.

I guess I'll have to do a boatload of baking.....
I'm so proud of you! You were brave! It's not like you were going to go home and drink it!

Anyway, it keeps forever, so enjoy your chocolate yummies!

PS: Enjoy the brownies when you get to them. I'd suggest the Italian Choc. cookie frosting. Over the top!

You know, I don't drink. When I was 37 I tried a couple of drinks and that is about it.

It just feels strange to me. I did go in and get it.

Here's one of my favorite chocolate / peanut mixtures. It's quick, easy and always a hit.

Chocolate Peanut Bars

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips
1 1/4 cups condensed milk
1 cup salted. roasted peanuts, finely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 11x7 baking pan with cooking spray and line with foil. Coat again with cooking spray.

2. Whisk together flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Stir in butter and vanilla extract. Press crust into bottom of pan. Bake 20 minutes or until golden. Cool.

3. Combine chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and condensed milk in saucepan. Melt over low to medium low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and even. Spread chocolate mixture over crust with a spatula. Press peanuts firmly into top of chocolate mixture. Cool to room temperature, then chill until firm. Cut into bars.

I have this really easy Fudge Brownie Cake recipe which my friend gave me. You can't go wrong with this recipe! It is so good, it oozes magical things for all who eat it. (Pikantari....I owed you after using your banana bread recipe which was tops!)


Fudge Brownie Cake

1 Chocolate Cake Mix
1 Fudge Brownie Mix (I use the Betty Crocker pouch one - 10.25 oz size, but you can use a box one, any brand but don't use the family size. When using anything but the 10.25 oz, you might have to had a bit of water.)
4 eggs
1 cup water
1 cup oil
1 cup chopped walnuts (can be omitted)

Do not use the ingredients on the mix boxes. Use only the ones stated above.

Grease and lightly flour a bundt cake pan. Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix all ingredients in the order given. Pour into greased/floured bundt pan. Bake this for 50 to 55 minutes at 350. My oven takes only 45 minutes.

Drizzle powdered sugar frosting or buy canned chocolate frosting and warm up about 1/2 of the can and drizzle over the cake.

Note: to cut the fat content, I sometimes use 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce instead of the 1 cup of oil. (I always use this method for cake mixes to cut the fat)

Ooooh I just bought a new bundt cake pan a few months ago that I haven't used yet!

Glad you enjoyed the banana nut bread! I am making it today!
