There is one couple who has us over frequently for dinner. We appreciate this greatly because
a) they’re awesome people who are fun to hang out with
b) dinner is always followed by ping pong and
c) dinner is always incredible and we are stunned that people who are not chefs working in 5 star restaurants can pull off such deliciousness.
… not so much the case around here. I generally don’t have time to make anything that tastes so great (unless I follow a super easy recipe that I’ve made a few times- then it will taste at least decent. Like oatmeal.). But we more than owed them a delicious dinner- and a home made one because really, what is better than a home cooked meal? (When it contains peanut butter, absolutely nothing.)
So, we made not one but two amazing recipes from Vegan Richa’s cookbook (which even tasted awesome with us making it! *miracle*) and since dessert is always critical, something sweet, too.
You may notice a theme on this blog… it is not intentional, but it just happened due to personal taste.
Peanut butter. Peanut butter. Chocolate. Chocolate.
So, chocolate definitely belongs (and I doubt few would disagree). But yeah, I have a peanut butter addiction, I’m choosing to embrace it, and I’m taking you all with me!
(Unless you are allergic. In which case, just eat the chocolate bar. Or replace the PB with your favourite nut or seed butter.)
Here’s a recipe that I modified from Chocolate Covered Katie’s Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars. The ones I made were very pudding like, probably because of the extra peanut butter and coconut oil. It was easy to make, which was awesome after making, let me remind you, two different dishes from Vegan Richa’s book. (Team effort, but still.)
Hope you enjoy it and top it with your favourite no-cows-involved (or goats. (?!)) frozen dessert.
