Peanut Butter Stuffed Ritz Dipped in Chocolate

ritz dipped

Chocolate, peanut butter and buttery crackers come together in this adorable little treat.  You are basically stuffing two crackers with a scrumptious, sweet, peanut butter filling. Then you dip them in a river of chocolate and drizzle on some white chocolate.  You can use a piping bag for the perfect lines or just use the tines of a fork. Either way will taste amazing! Special thanks to my favorite chocolate company, Chocoley!  You can check out the Chocoley Disks HERE on their website!ritz chocolate crackers

Easy One-Bowl, One-Step Hollandaise – A Miracle of Modern Science

I’m not sure what specifically that would be, but I assume there’s some kind of science behind this amazing, and possibly modern method I happened to stumble upon. I once saw a chef make hollandaise buy adding chucks of cold butter instead of whisking in hot melted butter, and it intrigued me.

Not enough to actually try it, but enough to make me wonder what would happen if we dumped everything in the bowl at once, and just cooked it all together. No one was more shocked than I was when it worked. And worked beautifully. By the way, I’m guessing I’m not the only person to have thought of this, but until I see proof, I will claim to be it’s inventor.

The only way this doesn’t work is if your heat is too high. I don’t have to tell you what will happen if it is. However, over a low flame (or double-boiler if you’re scared) this will come together very gradually, right before your eyes, and you’ll be able to stop anytime you see fit.  

Eggs are cheap, so give it a try, and see what happens. Being able to just dump everything into the bowl, and make hollandaise in one step is well worth the investment, especially with Mother’s Day coming up. Hint, hint. I really do hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 2 portions (this can be scaled-up to how ever much you need):
1 large egg yolk
4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
2 tablespoons cold water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (you can always add more to taste)
salt and cayenne or hot sauce to taste

Mud Pie Frappe

Mud Pie Frappe

The other day my friend was asking me, “what is your favorite coffee drink?” After telling her about my favorite mud pie frappe, I realized I haven’t shared the recipe with you guys yet! You can’t buy this one in a coffee shop because it is homemade! You probably can already guess from the name what is in it: peanut butter, chocolate syrup, chocolate sandwich cookies, and of course, milk and coffee! To make things quick and easy, I use Folgers instant coffee to make the coffee. No waiting for coffee to brew here! Instant coffee is perfect to always have in the kitchen, because many recipes call for it, and it is so quick and easy to use. I also like that it offers a single cup solution, so you don’t have to waste a whole pot of coffee just on yourself. 

Blended coffee drinks can get quite expensive, which is why I love making them at home. They are fun to make when friends are over instead of offering just plain coffee, especially on a warm day. Blended coffee drinks can be easily customized when made at home – add caramel, chocolate, vanilla, mint extract…anything you want! You can also just drink them plain by only using milk, ice and coffee. Sugar is optional
