  1. Chocolate pretzel peanut bars


    January 23, 2014 by Emily Pergament

    These delicious little bars were such a pain in the fanny to make, but they are pretty good. Don’t they look yummy?



    I got the recipe here (it’s the last recipe on the page), but Martha, I had some issues with it.

    First of all, this probably isn’t meant to be made in a 9×13″ pan. I transferred it to an 8×8″. The chocolate didn’t melt, so the peanuts were falling off, so I put more chocolate on top in hopes that it would melt over the peanuts and then I would refrigerate it and the chocolate would harden and there would be no more loose peanuts. But for some reason, the chocolate didn’t melt! The recipe called for it to be cooked for 20-22 minutes, but I probably put it in for an hour waiting for this chocolate to melt, and I eventually gave up. Anyway, they taste good but they were a pain to make and they are super crumbly.

    Oh and this was the first time I ever cooked with parchment paper! I don’t know why I had such an aversion to it before. My house didn’t burn down, so overall, it was a good experience.

    This is pain au chocolat in Paris. It was my favorite thing to eat in Paris.

    Last night, when we were in the Lower East Side, I saw a chocolate croissant at the cafe we went to, and I had to try it to see how it compared.

    choc croissantUgh, it just wasn’t good. There was too much chocolate in it, the chocolate was soft and the bread part wasn’t right. But you see that huge American iced coffee? That is perfection.

    Oh and Rob ate a blueberry crumble pie and said it was delicious:

  3. Chocolate PB pretzel balls

    These choco PB pretzel balls were pretty straightforward too. I used chunky PB instead of smooth PB because we had chunky at home.

    I mixed together all the ingredients except the chocolate and got this:
