Post 2: Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

GUESS WHAT!? I forgot to tell you something exciting in the last post. {yes, there is 2 today}

Tomorrow is Destiny’s LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!  YAY!  Smile

  I am so ready to have all my little people home with me all day long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

I know, I know, not everyone agrees that having kids home from school is worthy of that many excitement marks, and that’s ok.  You just happen to be on my blog today, so you just get to hear my opinions right now!

  I love summer break, and I so look forward to playing outside until dark, going places all as a family and making really great memories while we are at it.

  On to the food….

  This recipe use a simple Brownie mix and comes together pretty quickly considering you are dealing with little individual bite sized desserts!  I needed to make some cookies for the Kids School Play last month, What’s Up Zak? {the story of Zacchaeus} and this was something I easily had all the ingredients for in my pantry.

 Think little bites of chocolate peanut buttery goodness….

And bonus, they look like you went to a lot more work than you did! 🙂

  1. Mmmm, these look good! I have everything to make these and I KNOW that hubby will LOVE them. Put peanut butter on it and he is sure to love it!!!:)

    So glad that you will have your kiddos home with you know. Summer is GREAT! Mine are already outside playing in the cool of the morning. Then it is in the house to do school while it is to hot to play outside.:) I am sure that you will enjoy having them home with you. See, I don’t know that feeling of NOT having them home with me.:) But, I do love to homeschool. I like having them with me always. Some days are a little wild but, I know I will look back some day and wish we were here again. So, I am enjoying them while I have them with me.:) Kinda sad to think that they will be grown and gone in not much time at all.:(

    Enjoy you day!

    Oh,and Congrats to Ty for his graduation! He looked so nice in his cap and gown! They have really come up in the world with those. When I graduated preschool we made ours out of bowls and cardboard!:)

  2. AHA! This is definitely MY kind of recipe…pb & chocolate and so very simple. I haven’t seen this idea before…so glad you shared.

    • Ack! I wrote it serves 24 on the Tasty Kitchen site, but I am pretty sure I filled my 24 mini muffin pan more than once? So, at least 24! Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful, I need to take better notes when I cook! 🙂

  3. Oh yum I do make these and they are Amazing !
    I to would always be excited for summer break I used to love to take the kids to the park for a picnic lunch and go on bike rides mid morning before it got to hot. It’s just really nice family time when they are off for the summer!
    Enjoy!
