I’ll give you a minute.

No, you’re not dreaming and I won’t judge you if you’re thinking about licking your computer screen.

I’ve never been so excited for banana’s to go brown.

2 x the amount of bananas – 2 x the amount of bourbon – a wholelotta Mmmmm.

oozing with brown sugar syrup, caramelized crispy bananas – the cool burst of french vanilla ice cream … and that’s just the topping.

That lovely cake you see  – – bananas, brown butter and chunks of chocolate to take your taste buds on a roller coast to yum-town.

Friday’s are meant to be celebrated so I saved the best Sunday’s With Joy Recipe, for last.

This is one killer of a desert ( let’s be honest, I want it for breakfast, lunch and dinner too)!! It’s rich, it’s decadent and it’s out of this world delicious.

Your weekend needs a little foster – you bring the spoons, I’ve got dessert covered and the best part is, we don’t even have to share!!

Sunday’s With Joy : Extra Peanut Buttery Chocolate Brown Butter Cereal Squares

Setting the Sweetness Bar, Snack Attack, Sweet Treats

That title, it’s long. I know. What I really want to call these babies are OMG-SO-STINKIN-YUMMY peanut butter bars.

Peanut butter and chocolate addicts – unite! Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Brown butter all in one punch of yuuummm! Come my children .. welcome to the dark and delicious side.

As soon as I read Joy’s recipe for her Brown Butter Peanut Butter Crispy Rice treats, I knew I was in trouble. I knew instantly she was talking my language, I was about to put down my pb spoon and create something kind of wonderful.

And so, I did. And ate every single morsel of it. Addictive – yes, but in the BEST.WAY.POSSIBLE.

Before I show you what I did, can we have a little heart to heart.

Have you kids seen this little sucker :

HOLYCRAPOMGGETINMABELLY …

Yep. That was my expression exactly. General Mills / Cheerios people – I love you.

Marry me.

… And then I added chocolate.

BBRKS

You’re welcome …. and sorry; all at the same time. After munching, you’ll get it. You’ll both hate and love me.

I get it – I really do.

Also, if you thought today’s remix of joy’s recipe was nuts. Wait til you see what I have for your tomorrow. One word: Bourbon.

Stay Sweet!!
