We are taking a small mid-week latke break to discuss something very important.
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is back! Hosted by Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen, this is my second year participating and it is bigger than ever! Lindsay and Julie teamed up with OXO and Cookies for Kid’s Cancer. We all made a small donation when signing up and OXO went ahead and matched it dollar for dollar. I knew I loved them for good reason!
This year I immediately decided I wanted some sort of peanut butter and chocolate concoction. I always proclaim how much of a PB and chocolate freak I am, but there is a serious lack of recipes with that combination on the blog. My first thought went to the peanut butter cup sundaes I used to get a Friendly’s as a kid. I loved the hot fudge mixed with the peanut butter sauce. All of a sudden the idea for these cookies were born. I was going for a more fudge ripple effect, but that didn’t really happen when I poured the hot fudge into the batter as it was mixed.
Oh well! I still loved the cookies AND somehow managed to bake up delicate cookies that needed to be shipped out for the second year in a row. Can someone explain to me why I do that?
Oh yeah, this. We haven’t had a pug photo bomb in awhile. Hubs claims I set this up. I provoked puggers onto the table. I swear I didn’t. I was just setting up my photo and up his comes! Dogs love peanut butter, they can smell it everywhere!
Before we go, special thanks to Traci at Yellow Wishbone, Melissa at Blush and Jelly and Christie at Pepper Lynn. You ladies sent some wonderfully delicious cookies and there is a lot of resistance going on not to eat them all in one sitting!
One last tidbit, I promise, cookie madness is not over. Have you ever wanted to get your very own shipment of cookies from me? Well now you have that opportunity, Stephanie from Life Tastes Like Food is holding a holiday auction, 100% of the proceeds from the auction are getting donated. Head over there now and bid on my Thick and Chew Compost Cookies OR the cookie mix for the same cookies, so you can make them fresh out of the oven! Auction ends tomorrow, so don’t wait!
