Today, we’re talkin’ about one of my favorite subjects: peanut buttaaaahhh!!!

Sorry that was obnoxious. But I’m just so excited about peanut butter (as I usually am) and all the delicious flavors and these cookies.

Because these cookies, you guys, were awesome.

I have an odd, confusing confession: I obviously love peanut butter, but peanut butter cookies have never been my favorite. In fact, I pass them up in favor of most cookies, and usually won’t eat one when it’s offered to me. BUT, these cookies, I couldn’t stop eating whenever I was in the kitchen.

These cookies are soft, and not too sweet. They have the perfect amount of bite from the oatmeal. The texture is nicely crisp on the outside, but not too far past cookie dough on the insides (!!!!). The raisins (if you’re into them) add a nice burst of sweetness and added chewy texture. And of course, put your hands together for the star of the show: Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter!!

Ugh, that peanut butter is simply magical. The kind folks over at Peanut Butter & Co. offered to send me a little PB care package a few months ago and of couuurse I wasn’t going to turn down the opportunity to try a whole bunch of delicious peanut butter (if you questioned that…you clearly don’t know me).

When I got the heavy box in the mail, having totally forgotten about it, I was in total peanut butter heaven. My housemates and I all sat down on the couch with apples and tasted all the different flavors, picking and choosing our favorites.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl is my personal favorite (and definitely a house favorite, if the current state of the jar is any indication). It has actual raisins in it! It’s amazing. The Dark Chocolate Dreams taste’s like a Reese’s. Enough said. And the White Chocolate Dreams…well, you saw how I feel about white chocolate in my last post. I want you all to try them so you can pick your favorites!!

And while I can’t give one to all of you, the guys over at PB&Co. agreed to send one of you THE BIG SIX. It features six of their most delicious flavors (including my fave, and the star of this recipe!).

Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Fudge Swirls | from Bakerita.com

Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Fudge Swirls

Chocolate Ice Cream with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough & Fudge Swirls | from Bakerita.com I couldn’t let summer pass me by without making some ice cream. It’s a staple.

However…since an ice cream maker isn’t something most people have on hand, and it’s something I definitely don’t have living with a bunch of other girls in college, I opted to go the ice cream maker-less route for this ice cream.

The pros: the ice cream is SO easy to make, so few ingredients, and requires ZERO cooking. No sitting with a custard over the stovetop for too long, stirring and waiting, waiting and stirring…this ice cream base recipe requires little to no effort on your part. You simply whip the cream, mix the sweetened condensed milk with some melted chocolate, fold them all together and voila: chocolate ice cream. [Read more...]

Peanut butter. Peanut butter. Peanut butter.

It’s all you hear about on this blog. Sorry (but not really…).

Well, you’re hearing about it again! A couple weeks ago the National Peanut Board asked me to do a guest post for them featuring peanuts or peanut butter.

Fluffernutter Bars

Fluffernutter Bars | Bakerita.com I’ve shown a ton of love for peanut butter on this site, but it’s usually paired with chocolate. Dark, milk or white, it’s seen ‘em all. However, I sort of abandon all the other amazing ingredients peanut butter can be paired with, because let’s be real: rarely does anything beat chocolate.

I decided to branch out in the middle of trying this peanut butter bar/blondie-ish type recipe, and grabbed a jar of marshmallow fluff instead of chocolate chips for a change. The results: amazing. [Read more...]
