Whoa, how is the summer almost over?  Some of my blogging friends have already started posting pumpkin recipes!  I’m not complaining – pumpkin is my second love (after peanut butter) and I bake with it year round.  But I have so many summer recipes I still want to make before the summer ends.   Things with corn and tomatoes and berries and peaches and zucchini… I have a lot of baking to do between now and Sept 1 :)

So since I’m not quite ready to embrace the pumpkin, today I have a perfect summer recipe for you – Vanilla Frozen Yogurt!

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

photo (28) I blame the heat. Why else would I make a recipe like this – one that I KNOW TheBetterHalf and I will have absolutely no self control around?? This past week, we had a heatwave in NYC, and it made all of us a little crazy. Most Saturdays I will bake a loaf of bread or some muffins or a coffee cake, things that are delicious, but that I can usually stop eating after one or two pieces. Not this past Saturday…it was WAY too hot to turn on the oven. So I had the brilliant idea of making this no-bake recipe. This recipe is essentially a homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter cup, and it makes a whole tray of them!  I’m not sure if you have noticed yet, but chocolate peanut butter is our absolute favorite dessert combination. And these bars are amazing!! I knew before I made them that I would not be able to stop eating them. But I decided to make them anyway. And I’m very glad that I did.  A sweet and salty peanut butter bar topped with chocolate – what’s not to love?! They are so good, but so dangerous! That darn heat totally ruined any kind of healthy eating plan I had in mind for the weekend. Oh well, I guess that’s why they invented treadmills! …
