Hey everyone! I'm super excited to share this new recipe with you! It's a double layer dessert bar, the bottom layer is a simple peanut butter cookie, and the top is a fudgy brownie. And the best part, PEANUT BUTTER CUPS are all of this dessert! Soooo good. I find that the newer Mini Reese's cups work the best in this recipe. :)

Preheat oven to 325. Spray a 9'' pan with baking spray and set aside. 
Bottom layer: PB cookie
Ingredients: 1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg

In a mixing bowl, mix the sugar and egg together. Then add the peanut butter. Mix until it forms a dough. Press dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle half of the package of the Mini Reese's Cups over the cookie dough. Set aside. 

Top layer: Brownie
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a mixing bowl, use a whisk to mix the flour, sugar, and cocoa. Add butter, eggs, and vanilla. Mix well. 

Using a spatula, spread the brownie batter over the cookie dough and Reese's cups. Sprinkle the remaining Mini Reese's Cups over the batter. Bake for 30-35 minutes, rotating halfway through the bake time. Make sure its done in the middle. Let cool about 10 minutes before cutting into em. Could possibly be super delicious with ice cream. Yes. That sounds pretty awesome. :) Enjoy everyone!

The other cake I made was a 2 tier monster truck cake for 3 year old Spencer's, my friend Laura's son's, birthday!All was happy and so was I :)
     If you read my last blog post, then you know that this past Wednesday was my 24th birthday! And I really did have a great day! Went and got nails done with my friends Heather and Becky.. Dinner with a few more friends, (Lizzy, Heather, B-Ray, Amanda, and Brent<3), then I met with some MORE people at a local bar and grill. Thank you Ashley! I had so much fun! And I can't forget the awesome GIFTS! My darling Brent not only paid for my pedicure, and set up the dinner, he also got me a Paula Deen pastry board. I love love love it. :) And my friend Heather Thomas got me... *drum roll please*........... LINKIN PARK CONCERT TICKET!!!! I'm way beyond excited and I cannot wait to go!

2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temp
1 cup powdered sugar 
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
Ingredients for Filling: 
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 400. Spary a 9'' baking pan with spray. In a mixing bowl (for the crust) cream together the butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy and fluffy. Add the flour but mix only until crumbly! Take 2/3 of this mixture and press it to the bottom of the baking dish. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. When you pull this out of the oven set it aside and reduce the heat of the oven to 350. 

In a mixing bowl, using a whisk mix the sugar flour, lemon zest and salt. Add the eggs and lemon juice and mix well. Take your blueberries and sprinkle them all over the crust you made. Then pour your egg mixture over your blueberries. Take the last 1/3 of you crust mix and sprinkle it over the top of the filling. Bake (at 350) for 22-25 minutes, rotating halfway through the bake time. Made sure its golden on top. :) Let cool, cut into squares, and enjoy!

Hey everyone! Well it's Monday again. I love Mondays. :) However today I am down home (which is really only about an hour from where I reside). I'm babysitting my darling niece, Emily, all day while my mom spends time dealing with family matters. Speaking of which, my Grandpa Lloyd is not doing well and doesn't have much time left with us. So please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers! I will try to keep everyone updated on the matter. 
     On a lighter note, I turn the big 2-4 on Wednesday! I'm really excited. I'm off work for the whole day and my darling Brent is taking me to get my nails done, and my friends from work, Ashley and Brian are planning a party for me at a local pub later that night. I absolutely can not wait. :) 
     Anyways.. like I said, I have been down at my parents house all day with a soon-to-be 3 year old. So I've done some cleaning and of course some BAKING. :) One of the things I love about baking at my parents house is my mothers extensive collection of Tupperware. I love using products! If you haven't checked out her website, you should take a look! The downfall to doing this at my parents house.. I don't have my fancy utensils or platters. So yes, I am serving this cake on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Deal with it. lol 

So little miss Emily let me help her make this cake... (the talented toddler she is. lol) and let me tell you... it is soooooo good! Super moist and full of chocolate! And the icing isn't heavy at all.. it's more like whipped icing. This is where I adapted the cake recipe from. 

She looks kinda angry... but she's saying "CHEESE!" and laughing at the same time. lol
Double Chocolate Cake
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa, unsweetened
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup cold brewed coffee
1 cup +2 Tbl of buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350. Use parchment paper or baking spray on a 9x13, or (I used) 2- 8'' square pans. 
In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle of the mix. and add all of the remaining ingredients except the chocolate chips. I hand mixed it so I wouldn't over mix. 
Pour batter into pans. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the batter. 
If making a 9x13 cake, bake for 35-40 minutes. For smaller cakes bake for 20-25 minutes. Rotate halfway through baking. Let cool. :) 

The  icing I made for this cake is soooo good. Very light and fluffy. This is the recipe I used for the icing. I added about 1 cup of cocoa to make it chocolate. The recipe I adapted from asks you to use a stand mixer.. however I could not find one here (I'm sure it's around here somewhere! lol) So I used the hand mixer. It worked just fine, but took a lot longer and was a lot more work than I had hoped for. However, if you taste it... its totally worth it. This is an excellent recipe, and I will probably used it again. :) I just frosted it up and sprinkled more chocolate chips on top. Delicious!  

I hope you guys get to try this recipe, and enjoy it as much as I did! If you haven't already, please like my facebook page. I'm getting more and more likes and I'm loving it! I'm thinking once I get to 100, another giveaway. What do ya think? :) Also feel free to follow me on pinterest
