I had a pretty busy week so I promised myself that by the end of the week, I would bake something...
I had a few things in mind. Like I said a few posts ago, the Chocolate Chunkers, Chocolate Malted Whopper Cookies, and Granola Grabbers (all from Dorie Greenspan) were looking really good!
However, I recently bought a new, fun item from Trader Joe's:
I love chocolate covered pretzels, so this being made with dark chocolate was even more tempting!
And they're Miki-size! They are tiny little bite size balls!
I like these little treats by themselves but there was no way that I would eat this whole tub... so I thought, what can I do with them? I immediately thought they would be wonderful baked in some blondies! So I searched some blondie recipes, but another brilliant thought popped into my head... How about Peanut Butter Blondies?!
I came across this recipe from Slow Like Honey for Peanuttiest Blondies! And guess what... it is yet another Dorie Greenspan recipe! I should just get her damn book, Baking: From My Home To Yours!
I followed the recipe exactly except that I substituted the peanuts with my Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels and added a handful of Ghirardelli Bittersweet Baking Chips.
Its amazing what 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon can make your apartment smell like... HEAVEN!
Cooling in the pan, these blondies were a beautiful, golden brown!
This is my piece that I set aside... I have yet to try it! I shall post my thoughts on it later...
what a tease!
