Brazilian Peanut Fudge

Rating: 5 stars
You can make this easy fudge-like sweet using salted peanuts if you like. This will give it a slightly salty bite which is common in Brazil.

Favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Rating: 4.57 stars
Recently I had to make some cookies for a party. Much to my dismay, I was out of chocolate chips and had one bag of peanut butter chips I didn't know what to do with. This recipe was (fortunately) a successful experiment as I crossed my favorite brownie and chocolate chip cookie recipes. My family likes it better than both. It tastes something like a peanut butter cup in cookie form.

Peanut Medley

I was experimenting last Halloween, trying to find a sweet treat. I got this kind of weird combination, but for me it worked.

Grama's Corn Flake Peanut Butter Cookies

Rating: 4.72 stars
These cookies remind me of peanut butter fudge. My Grandmother made them for us, and now I make them for my family. There is nothing healthy about this recipe but it is a great sweet-tooth fixer.

Healthier Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Puffed Caramel Corn

Rating: 4.91 stars
Puffed corn can be found in the potato chip aisle of your grocery store. This is a great caramel corn without hulls or unpopped kernels. Warning: you need to make a double batch of this because it doesn't last long, at least not in my house. Very addicting. Love it!
