My hubby loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (as you can tell, he is my inspiration for many desserts since he is the one who eats them!) So I came across this delicious recipe from Pillsbury for Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Jam Cookie Bars– which my official taste tester (aka hubby) gave a HUGE thumbs up too. He also immediately ran to the kitchen to pour himself a tall glass of milk afterwards too. This dessert is very rich in flavor and yummy in taste. If you are a kid at heart (like hubby) and love your pb&j sandwiches…this dessert is for you!
Starting off with the basic ingredients. I used grape jam.
Pressed the sugar cookie dough onto the bottom of the pan
Layer with peanut butter
Grape Jam Layer
Sprinkle chocolate chip morsels
Add cookie dough for top layer
Fresh out of the oven
Ready to eat (and with a glass of milk, of course!)
Its my favorite day of the week. You know…the one that we can finally breathe a sigh of relief when its over, run home to put on our favorite pajamas and watch back to back episodes of the Kardashians over pizza and wine. Well, okay…this isn’t exactly how its done in my house (unfortunately haha!) but on a perfect Friday night this is how I envision it. Researching for tonight’s desserts I came across one with a catchy title called Boozy Bourbon Chocolate Cupcakes – how appropriate! Thank you Betty Crocker for creating desserts that are easy and fun to make especially for adults like me who enjoy an alcoholic beverage now and then…especially in a cupcake!

All chocolate lovers rejoice!!! It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t honor America’s own chocolatier, Milton Hershey. He was a man with a simple dream of perfecting chocolate. Did you know his first candy was the caramel? And he then decided to make chocolate as just a coating to top the caramel candies. The first Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar was being sold in America in 1900…112 years ago. You can read more of his fascinating story right here.
As a kid, I was always enamored with chocolate and to this very day the original Hershey’s Bar (minus the almonds) is my ultimate favorite. I remember trips years ago to Hershey Park in Hershey, Pennsylvania, riding the boat through the chocolate river and being in awe of all around me, mouth wide open hoping to get a drop of chocolate from the chocolate river.
In honor of National Chocolate Day – here is the ultimate chocolate cake recipe which is called Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake. Perfect for all of you chocolate lovers out there!

Oreo celebrates it’s 100th birthday this year! There is much debate on how to eat an Oreo cookie. Dunk them in milk, twist off one side and eat the middle first? Or just eat the entire cookie at once. My preference has to always taken off one side and scrape the filling off with my teeth. You can find this delicious Oreo celebration cake here.
How do you eat your Oreo cookie?
