My Weakness

What is your weakness? I am not talking yarn, fabric, wine, or handbags. I am talking food. Mine is chocolate. With peanut butter in the middle. Oh yum.
How much of your weakness have you eaten?
A lot?
Me too.
In fact when I was pregnant with Jack, I would buy Peanut Butter cups weekly. The big bag, with the big Peanut Butter cups in them. Mama did not share either. Addison was only two, and Anna was one, so it was really easy to sneak them into the cart without them noticing.
I think my husband got in trouble a few times for digging into the stash.
Don't men know that you do not touch a pregnant woman's food stash?

Anyway, I have no idea how many of these I ate during that time, but I do know the scale said I gained 75 big ones!
I blame it on my weakness.

There is a healthier homemade version out there though. I made some with the kids yesterday and I did share.
You can find the recipe here.
It only makes one dozen, so do what I did and double it.

You know you want to!

That combination is one of my most favorites, too. Well, peanut butter anything is my favorite. (And dark chocolate/raspberry. Yum!)

Every Easter I make a huge batch of Buckeyes. I can only make them once a year because of the consumption quantity. It's better that way.

Oh my goodness those look divine. I am heading to the store to make some for us! Thanks for the link :)

We share the same weakness.

I'm not allowed to be left unsupervised with chocolate/peanut butter anything.

Bubba's gone this weekend though so...

yes, I want to! those look de-lish, and you've tempted me even further by saying there is a healthier option.

i have a weakness for chocolate sometimes but not all the time, tho. i guess bread pudding would be my real weakness or cherry cobbler, but i don't know how to make either of them so i'm pretty safe most of the time!

All right, cough it up....where is the recipe? :O

Pam said...

Wow, those look so so good. However, since my children are fatally allergic to peanuts, I cannot have them. Have some (and some more) for me, will you?

Hilary said...

Yes. Yes I most definitely want to!! I think I've found my weekend baking project...

Thanks for the recipe and if you want an apple peeler like that one, let me know, I saw another one recently. Mailing is probably at least $5 though. I paid $5 for this one, so a ten would do it. I will look if you want.

Gretchen said...

YUM!!! one of my favorite combinations!

I totally LOVE this recipe and can't have the ingredients in the house, otherwise I will make them. ALL. THE. TIME. but I do have some of the ingredients left in the pantry, now that i think about it. Hmmm....maybe just a small batch then. not for me! for the children, of course.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I had to give up my beloved Reese's when I had to give up dairy. I can make these dairy-free. Yippee!

OH your killing me here.. I had to make these and they were a HUGE hit. I now am going to suffer more time on the elliptical to compensate for them. But that's ok. I took them to family dinner last night and they were loved by all.

Those look so mouth-watering delicious. Wish I had a jar full waiting on my kitchen counter right this very minute, because my weakness is chocolate too!

Obviously, I am woefully behind on my blogreading! OH MY. Yes, I join you in peanut butter and chocolate LOVE. I will be trying the recipe for the slightly healthier version!
Thank you!!!
