Balancing out my “Hard Rockin’” holiday post with a “Homemaker” one! Seems like the right thing to do.
Last Thursday night I went on a baking binge. I somehow ended up with morbidly obese ninja-bread men, and I definitely half-assed the decorating part:
On the bright side, they still tasted good! It was just your basic gingerbread recipe, and then I put in some white chocolate chunks and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar.
But my absurdly delicious culinary accomplishment was based on the Chocolate Peanut Butter 7-Layer Bars recipe I found on The Domestic Rebel.
7 Layers? Please. Get that nonsense out of my kitchen! I made 8 layers:
- Devil’s food cake
- Crushed pretzels
- Peanut butter chips
- Reece’s Pieces
- Honey Roasted Peanuts
- Chocolate Chips
- Sweetened condensed milk
These were so stupidly addictive. I brought them with me to Charlottesville for the Sons of Bill/American Aquarium show (which, it should come as no surprise to hear, was absolutely phenomenal). My diet for the past few days has, in fact, primarily consisted of these and bloody marys. And on that note, I’ll encourage you to check out the full recipe and prettier pictures on The Domestic Rebel’s blog (I kind of have a friend-crush on her), and I’m going to go for a long jog to try to mitigate some of the damage I’ve done to my weight-loss ambitions. [Ed. Note: Went for the jog, came back and had another brownie. I mean, seriously.]
