Peanut Butter Cup Brown Butter Bars

My friend Jaime made some cookies recently that were so yummy, I just had to get the recipe. They are called Brown Butter Sugar cookies, and I seemed to remember seeing something about them on the web from one of my blogging friends. It sounded curious, and I was excited to make them myself!  I added a little twist, so today I bring you Peanut Butter Cup Brown Butter Bars.

A Collection of 21 Snickers Treats

Today is my hubby’s birthday, and when I was trying to think of a yummy treat to make for him, the idea of something SNICKERS sounded fun, because it is his all time favorite treat! I found so many mouth watering recipes, I had to share them. I think round-ups or collections are so fun, so I put another one together like the 37 White Chocolate Recipes I made last week, but with 21 Satisfying SNICKERS recipes!   In no particular order, here are a few recipes I thought looked delicious:

37 delicious White Chocolate recipes

I have a slight obsession with white chocolate these days. It’s seemingly come out of nowhere, and I find myself buying a bag of white chocolate chips each time I go to the grocery story because I’ve used a bag in the past week. I find a handful of white chips to be an enjoyable snack in the afternoon, especially paired with a handful of craisins as well. I have scoured the web and found the most mouth watering recipes, a lot of these I’ve made myself…the rest, I have big plans to make them soon!

I decided to conduct a little taste test with my hubby to see which white chocolate chip brand he likes best (because they all taste the same to me) and I was surprised with the results! I’ve always heard that Ghirardelli chocolate is the best, and well, the packaging is shiny and pretty, so I generally purchase that brand. My hubby (from San Fransisco where Ghirardelli is made) placed this particular chocolate in THIRD place! He said it was chalky.  Second place came Hershey’s, and first place was NESTLE! I really should just buy whatever is cheapest…do you have a preference?

I didn’t realize there is a big difference between pure white chocolate and vanilla almond bark that I often use in some baking such as dipping chocolate.  Wikipedia told me they are actually made from inexpensive solid or hydrogenated vegetable and animal fats, and are not even made from cocoa. This coating  is white (in contrast to white chocolate’s ivory shade) and will lack cocoa butter’s flavor. 


I’ve found myself searching my favorite blogs to see if they have a recipe with white chocolate chips, and have seen a few while browsing on pinterest. I thought I’d do a little gathering of the white chocolate recipes that look the most delicious to me that I’d like to try. I was surprised that a lot of these DIDN’T come up in a pinterest search for “white chocolate chips” so I thought this might be helpful for those others that love white chocolate chips as well. In this collection, I’ve found quite a few differenent “blondie” bar recipes, pancakes, cookies, fudge, cheesecake, rice krispies, and a dip. Enjoy some eye candy for now (until you get to baking)!
