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

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 :

Oh My Yum Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies

CONFESSION: I’ve celebrated National Peanut butter month, but … I’ve left the BEST for last!

Today marks the last day of National Peanut Butter Month :( and while I’m a little heart-broken – – it’s been such a fantastic month!!

To be honest, I think I’ve done the month justice.

I’ve ploughed through 4 Liters of Peanut Butter  countless sticks of butter – seas of sugar – – and the flour situation …

don’t get me started ( at one point, I had to do an emergency flour run :( lol).

It was a month filled with browniescake- french toastoatmeal- popcorn-bread and while I wasn’t eating peanut butter… I was drinking it.

And though – – some may say, I’ve eaten more peanut butter than the average cupcake – – my list is not complete without these cookies!! 

Dear I claim these cookies to be THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE I’ve had In.my.life.

Pretty strong claim huh?  – Especially coming from a cookie monster like myself … I’ve had a decent amount of cookies – – and still no other Peanut Butter Cookie stands to match the chewy, nutty and ohhh myy yummm deliciousness of this bad boy.

Pure.Peanut Butter. Cookie. Seduction.

So what makes it so spanky? …. This little puppy is a PBJ Cracker Sammie  hugged by a PB Cookie – – can we say  Hippy style love fest!!

Sugar Pies… even if you haven’t celebrated the month (…yet)- there’s still time… do yourself a favour and get this little mounds of joy

in. your.bellaaayy ;)

Happy Peanut Butter Munching my loves.
