Triple P Surprise (Peggy's Pretzel Peanut Butter)

I bought a huge bag of Pretzel Crisps a few months ago at Costco.  I couldn't believe how good they were, considering they were pretzels.  After awhile I was getting a little bored with them so I started putting a little peanut butter on each one.  Not exactly the healthiest way to eat pretzels, but they were delicious.  I thought there's got to be something else I can do with these pretzels.  Yesterday I bought another huge bag of Pretzel Crisps and I finally figured out what it was missing:  CHOCOLATE!  These taste so good that my daughter decided they tasted better than the chocolate chip cookies she made yesterday. There is just the right amount of sweet, salt and peanut butter.   I guarantee that if you take these to a party, they will be a hit.  Let me know what you think!

26 pretzel crisps
peanut butter
2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
 (I used semi-sweet but milk chocolate would be  
 delicious as well)
1 Tbs. shortening

Find 26 whole pretzels.  Put the broken ones in a bowl to snack on while you are making these.  Spread about 1/8" of peanut butter on one pretzel. 

Make a sandwich with another pretzel.

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in microwave on high one minute.  Continue melting for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until completely melted.  Dip each pretzel sandwich in melted chocolate.  Lift with fork and tap off excess chocolate.  Place on waxed paper.

Let chocolate harden  If you need it to harden quicker, place in refrigerator. Makes 13.

Quick ... easy ... yummy!

Strawberry Jam Shortbread Bars

I have lived in my apartment over a year and, little by little, I have been exploring the area of North Andover/Andover, MA.  The other day I read that it was the first day of the season for corn.  I waited until Ryan came home from work and we headed off to about 3 or 4 farm/farm stands.  Some were better than others.  I can imagine what they will be like in the Fall.  Our favorite was Smolak Farmsin North Andover. They had such a cute shop that had lots of specialty food items, homemade donuts and ice cream, etc..  I was able to taste  their homemade strawberry jam and I was immediately hooked.  I have been collecting different jams lately fromStonewall Kitchen, York, ME.  Those samples will get you every time.  As soon as I tasted the strawberry jam, I knew I had to get it and make a yummy dessert.  I found a recipe online from Recipe Girl, which I have adapted.  Enjoy this buttery, sweet, fruity bar.  

Chocolate Sheet Cake for a Crowd

April 20-29 is National Dance Week. I brought this cake to my kid's dance studio tonight and I think it went over pretty well.

Triple Chocolate Pound Cake

I needed a dessert for Easter dinner.  When I want to try something new, I go online.  One of my daughters loves everything chocolate so when I saw "triple chocolate" on this recipe from My Recipes, I knew that it was the one. It is the buttermilk that makes this cake so delicious, moist and chocolatey.  It seems like a lot of ingredients, but it was so easy to make.  Just a quick note.  I buy my chocolate on Amazon.  Here is the link for the bittersweet chocolate:  Callebaut 811 53.8% Dark Semi Sweet Chocolate Callets 1 lb.  You can check other product suggestions on the drop down menu above.  This would make a perfect cake to serve at home.  It would also travel very easily.   Enjoy!!
