It wouldn’t be Christmas around here without some kind of Christmas Crack recipe! It has become my annual tradition on Chez CateyLou! It started with the original Christmas Crack, which might I add has been my most popular recipe this month, and then last year I made a Graham Cracker Toffee version. And this year, I have really outdone myself with this Peanut Butter Christmas Crack.

In case you have never heard of this delicious treat, Christmas Crack is an easy chocolate toffee that is made with saltine crackers. It is called “crack” because it is absolutely addicting – anytime I make it, TheBetterHalf and I can’t stop eating it. Truly addicting – and that is why I only make it once a year!  My peanut butter version takes addicting to a new level – if you are a peanut butter lover, you HAVE to try this recipe!

I can’t even begin to tell you how many of my recipes are a result of trying to use up an ingredient in my fridge. I HATE wasting food, but I’m constantly buying something for a recipe and then only using part of it.

Ex: milk. I will buy milk to make muffins, and then I have an entire carton to use up! (TheBetterHalf and I both hate to drink milk).

So this recipe came about because I had exactly 5 oz of cream cheese to use up! And I conveniently had 3 king size packs of Reese’s peanut butter cups (I can’t resist things that are on sale). And thus, Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Bars were born!

Bonjour mes amis! I am writing to you from lovely Paris! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that TheBetterHalf and I are off on a two week vacation. We went to Madrid, Marrakech, and now are finishing our trip in Paris. I have been working for over 7 years and have never had two weeks off in a row, so this has been such a treat for me!

I know I should be sharing a Thanksgiving recipe with all of you, but since I won’t be in America for Thanksgiving, I did all my cooking a few weeks ago. So to take a break from green beans and pie and stuffing, I have cookies for you! Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies – soft and chewy in the middle, just slightly crispy on the edges, and full of tons of peanut butter chips. This is one delicious cookie!

Today is a very important day – it is TheBetterHalf’s Birthday! As the biggest chocolate peanut butter lover of all time (I’m pretty sure he thinks he was the first person to like the delicious flavor combo), I of course had to make him something choco pb. And since I already made a chocolate peanut butter cake for Chez CateyLou’s birthday, I made TheBetterHalf Peanut Butter Brownies! Fudgy chocolate brownies with a thick peanut butter layer sandwiched right in the middle – if that doesn’t scream Birthday Treat, I don’t know what does!
