Peanut Butter Cup Caramel Bars

Peanut Butter Cup Caramel Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
This recipe convinced me to go back to full size peanut butter cups. By accident. For some reason I thought it called for full size peanut butter cups. Happy accident.

Previously I equated baking with peanut butter cups to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures. And what’s not to love about eating the leftover miniatures? One bite and you’re in chocolate and peanut butter heaven. Although, there were those sassy cups whose chocolate ridges stuck to the inside of the paper liner. Who gave those cups such sass?

Peanut Butter Jelly Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
It’s peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly! Peanut butter jelly! Peanut butter jelly with a baseball bat!

I’m still in my bar phase. I wish I was in a Barre phase and going to Barre classes twice a day, everyday. My ass would have its own Instagram account.

Maybe if I bought spiffy $50 Nike Studio Wraps, I’d go to more Barre classes at CRE8FIT. Continue reading

Vegan Blondies

Vegan Chocolate Chip Blondies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Vegans are like rabbits. They eat carrots and they multiply… you know, like rabbits. I wonder if their feet when cut off and attached to key chains are lucky? Being that they are vegan, they would probably disapproved of me testing this theory.

I swear my circle of vegan friends has doubled this year, and as much as those rascally rabbits love my Chocolate Stout Brownies and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, I’m in the middle of my “bar stage.” Don’t worry, I’m not frequently bars by myself ordering cheap beer and eating peanuts for dinner, this is far more sinister: have you noticed pretty much all of September was bar cookie posts? What can I say, I’m lazy. I like not having to wait to scoop out another dozen rounds of cookie dough and not having to prepare parchment paper for cookie sheets. Continue reading

Chocolate Revel Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
You’ll forgive me if this post is similar to the last one right? You wouldn’t deny an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie in bar form would you?

I told you that most of my baked goods need to be ultra portable, so I often resort to bars since they: a) pack easier, and b) hold up better to rough-housing Delta baggage handlers. Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bars

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
So remember how I met my blogger friend Anna from Cookie Madness in Austin? Well, to celebrate the occasion I knew I had to make something from her blog for the occasion. I had been hankering to make some blondes, and of course Cookie Madness has a LOT of choices, not to mention Anna’s book The Daily Cookie.

The words “peanut butter chips” and “shiny top” immediately attracted me to this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bars.

For a recipe so simple, I have one word: Whoa. They did not disappoint! Continue reading

Backpacker Bars

Backpacker Bars | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
What happens when you combine blondies and a granola bar? Backpacker bars! You thought I was going to say blondola bars didn’t you?

I believe the fine folks at Betty Crocker dubbed these “backpacker bars” because a) they give you “energy” on a camping journey through the wilderness and b) they make a great backpack snack for the kiddies. We can debate the accuracy of these assumptions, including if peanuts, chocolate, sugar and flour really make for lasting “energy” or a good “snack,” but one thing that is not up for debate on this blog: oatmeal + chocolate + peanuts = delicious.

P’Nutty Slutty Brownies

P'Nutty Slutty Brownies | Adventures of a Hungry Redhead
Oh slutty brownies, you triple-threat temptress. Tempting everyone to eat you, but also tempting me to find new combos for you. Maybe it was those damn peanut butter cup s’more bars that got me craving the peanut butter and chocolate combo, maybe I was reminiscing about elementary school lunches, but one thing lead to another and I might have put another Little Debbie classic betwixt cookie and brownie. I have no shame. Continue reading
