It's true! At least that's the way my mind works. And from my experiences in blog hopping, that's exactly the way a LOT of blogger's minds work! Seriously.
I have a bit of a dilemma today. I have to choose between the Daily Blog Review or Chocolate Friday. And I guess you know which one I chose. Obviously.
Chocolate is always gonna be top choice....
I have seen this recipe all over the Internet and everyone has their own version. Some people leave the cocoa out and just do the peanut butter. (THE HORROR!) but I have never, ever done that, nor have I tasted anyone else's plain version. Maybe someday....not.
Here's the recipe:
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 cups oats
- dash of vanilla, if you have time
And you can even make it with instant oatmeal packets. If you're desperate.
And here's a photo of the second batch. Notice the neat squares? When you pour it into a blob, you can cut squares and not have to rush through the whole spoon dropping. Also, notice the lighter brown color and dullness? Well, it's lighter because I didn't measure the cocoa and obviously shortchanged the mixture. But the dullness means you boiled a little bit too long. It should be a rich brown with a slight gloss finish....perfect. Oh, well. Maybe next time.
Until I can get back with pictures, why don't you visit Lisa at Stop & Smell the Chocolates? You can check out all of the other Chocolate Friday posts, and maybe even add one of your own!
