World’s Most Brilliant Combo

July 9, 2010

I got to thinking about relationships and partial lobotomies. Two seemingly different ideas that might just be perfect together – like chocolate and peanut butter.

-Carrie Bradshaw, Sex In The City

Carrie was definitely onto something as I cannot get enough of the chocolate + pb combo these days!

First up, we have coffee protein ice-cream with dark chocolate mini Reese’s cups…

Then I baked chocolate peanut butter muffins.

This morning’s breakfast consisted of plain goat milk yogurt with Peanut Butter Puffins and Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter

However, the most amazing chocolate/peanut butter dish thus far was the following bowl of deliciousness…

IMG_5350.JPG

Quick cooking Irish oats with dark chocolate mini Reese’s cups and whipped cream. Oh my goodness, my taste buds could not have been happier! πŸ™‚

For a healthier version, you could make homemade peanut butter cups (super easy!) or just freeze a blob of Dark Chocolate Dreams PB in the freezer. I promise it tastes straight-up like a Reese’s cup!

21 weeks and still fitting into my favorite Joe’s Jeans, but not for long. πŸ˜‰

So, what is your favorite way to inhale chocolate + peanut butter? Please share!

    HEATHER! This post made me smile SO MUCH! Not just the peanut butter/chocolate combo, but your lady lump! It’s beautiful, and that pregnancy glow! Ahh you’re stunning. No worries, those jeans will still be around when HEABlet pops out πŸ™‚

    My favorite way to inhale chocolate + peanut butter? Good question…can I get it on a kebab?

  2. July 9, 2010 8:58 am

    You are so stinkin’ cute! Love the belly update πŸ™‚

    Aren’t those Dark Chocolate Reese’s amazing? I love putting them on hot oatmeal to melt a little. Yum.

    Favorite pb + chocolate combos:
    Grilled pb + dark chocolate chip sandwich (make like a grilled cheese. yum)
    Make dark chocolate reese’s pancakes!
    pb + chocolate smoothies
    …sometimes just a spoonful of pb with a few chocolate chips on it.

  3. July 9, 2010 8:58 am

    You look beautiful! Pregnancy definitely suits you well…so gorgeous!

    I definitely love a nice dark chocolate square with PB smeared on top of it. That’s my little sweet treat every night after dinner πŸ™‚

  4. July 9, 2010 8:59 am

    I love to just melt dark chocolate, mix with peanut butter and a little milk to make it more liquid, then put it in ice sube trays in the freezer.

    Instant “better” reese’s cup!

  5. July 9, 2010 9:00 am

    You look fabulous!! πŸ™‚

  6. July 9, 2010 9:00 am

    I love making Chocolate PB No Bakes.

  7. July 9, 2010 9:01 am

    Meg, Hehe – a chocolate PB kebab – brilliant! I’m thinking frozen blobs of chocolate PB with frozen chunks of banana all stuck on a skewer. Perfect. πŸ™‚

  8. July 9, 2010 9:01 am

    Marilou, I like the way you think. πŸ™‚

  9. July 9, 2010 9:02 am

    Brandi, Oh my gosh, I want to get out my pancake griddle right now!

  10. July 9, 2010 9:03 am

    Clarice, I love eating them. πŸ˜‰

    Hmm I definitely think frozen treats with chocolate and PB are great! Maybe hot breakfast cereal, too? Or smeared on a bananner? Lots of options πŸ™‚

  12. July 9, 2010 9:06 am

    I love Dark Chocolate Dreams PB – SO good! Love the belly photo – you look beautiful as always Heather.

  13. July 9, 2010 9:09 am

    Hot mom! Cute goodies πŸ™‚

    Yay for PB&CHOC. My favorite combination. (One of them anyway.)

  14. July 9, 2010 9:09 am

    You look so great!! And the HEABlet will look great in that cute little outfit too. Danielle is so great. That must have been a nice surprise to get from her.

    My favorite way to enjoy choc + pb??? I think it would have to be in candy form. PB cups are the perfect combo of those two flavors.

  15. July 9, 2010 9:09 am

    AYMENNNNNN. Hands down the best combo ever. I didn’t have any Dark Chocolate Dreams, so I just froze some plain PB blobs (thanks to your idea) and have been popping them in my mouth to melt. SO plain & easy, but SO yummy! You and the Heablet look amazing!

    Mmmm I love homemade peanut butter cups! I love using them in chocolate soft serve. Peanut butter simply mixed into chocolate protein shakes is amazing too! You and your baby bump are just beautiful, you definitely have that pregnancy glow! πŸ˜‰

  18. July 9, 2010 9:12 am

    Wow you’re really showing!! you look so cute with a baby bump!

    PB and Chocolate is one of my favorites and I’ll take it any way I can get it!

    Oh yes, chocolate and PB are my all time fave combo!! I think the best way to eat them are homemade buckeyes. Plus, I’m from Ohio so I feel patriotic (or something??) when I do so :).

  20. July 9, 2010 9:16 am

    Ohh chocolate and peanut butter post!!! I love chocolate & peanut butter as a chocolate cake frosting. But I really love homemade chocolate peanut butter cup you are holding. I love. I think you look so amazing for 21 weeks! I had to eliminate all my jeans at 18 weeks….

  21. July 9, 2010 9:19 am

    I love baby belly pics and you are adorable.

    I like to make chocolate and PB overnight oats or Green monsters. They just make it feel like dessert instead of breakfast or refueling after a run. I use dark chocolate powder and good pb.

  22. July 9, 2010 9:20 am

    Hooorraaaay for little baby bellies!! So perfect!

    As far as PB/Chocolate is concerned: I like to make my PB cups thanks to your recipe, and eat the edges first. Then dig in to the middle part. I’m a werido.
    Beofre my healthier days I used to LOVE Moosetracks ice cream–with chunks of fudge and mini pb cups. Holy moly–I need to recreate this … yum…

  23. July 9, 2010 9:22 am

    I’m actually making a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake tonight for my husband’s birthday. I would have to agree – chocolate peanut butter is one of the absolute best combinations in the world. Not peanut butter, but every morning I enjoy a chocolate/almond butter/banana smoothie.

  24. July 9, 2010 9:23 am

    i just started following you. you’re pregnant!!!! you look super too.

  25. July 9, 2010 9:24 am

    Love the choc/PB combo! Sometimes just as simple as frozen butterfingers or homemade brownies with a PB swirl. Or choc froyo with butterfinger topping. πŸ™‚ I could go on and on…

    You look fab by the way and so fun that the little one is starting a wardrobe. πŸ™‚

  26. July 9, 2010 9:25 am

    Heather you look great! πŸ˜€
    Like you I love, love, LOVE PB&Co Dark Chocolate Dreams! But, if I had to choose something else it would be chocolate and PB icecream! YUM!

    July 9, 2010 9:27 am

    YUM! Great topic! I love just about anything with chocolate and PB. Ask my man. πŸ™‚ For a straight up injection plop a couple tbsps and some semi-sweet or dark choc morsels in a little container and microwave it for about 30-40 seconds for desired meltiness. πŸ™‚

    You look amazing and so adorable with your belly! And the clothes are just so cute too!

  28. July 9, 2010 9:29 am

    SO cute! Love the belly pic and love that you’re still in your Joe’s! Those are my fave brand of jeans, too. πŸ™‚ And there is no better combo than dark choc and PB … except maybe dark choc and rasp. Or dark choc. and mint πŸ˜‰

    I am officially drooling. Those muffins look soo good!

  31. July 9, 2010 9:37 am

    Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite too – add in banana and I am in heaven! My favorite combo would have to be making banana soft serve with a few teaspoons of ghirardelli cocoa powder blended in. Then topped with peanut butter puffins. YUM!

  32. July 9, 2010 9:42 am

    Okay, now you have me craving that Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter! Where do you get it? Is it at Whole Foods?

  33. July 9, 2010 9:43 am

    Oh yum! I love chocolate and peanut butter. It’s almost umami. I’ve had some good success making smoothies/ice cream in my Vita by mixing peanut and cocoa flour. Topping with nuts and cacao nibs for crunch, of course!

  34. July 9, 2010 9:50 am

    That homemade chocolate peanut butter cup is looking GOOD, and so are you, Mama! πŸ™‚

  35. July 9, 2010 9:56 am

    I have a thing called, “Chocolate Obsession” in my recipes that is really vital to my existence at some points. . . I also stir heaps of coco powder into oatmeal for a giant chocolaty bowl. AND Martha Stewart has this recipe for prune brownies that’s so good I’m giggling about it as I type this. πŸ˜€

    As for peanut butter, Jenna (from Eat Live Run) has a peanut butter oatmeal recipe that’s killer! I also love peanut butter on bananas & carrots & celery.

  36. July 9, 2010 10:00 am

    This post makes me happy. I really must try oats + mini PB reeses. That sounds like a divine treat!

    Also, being preggers definitely suits you. You have a serious GLOW about you, and it’s just beautiful!

  37. July 9, 2010 10:01 am

    Step one: open bag of Ghirardelli 60% Cacao baking chips.
    Step two: open jar of Teddie super chunky peanut butter
    Step three: dip spoon into PB
    Step four: dip PB covered spoon into chocolate chips
    Step five: put spoon in mouth and enjoy.

  38. July 9, 2010 10:02 am

    Amber, My Whole Foods used to carry it, but I don’t think they do anymore. I buy it at Kroger, another grocery store here in Nashville. It’s in their regular peanut butter section.

    July 9, 2010 10:02 am

    chocolate and pb is truly my thing. i like to melt dark chocolate chips (in my mouth haha), then add a big spoonful of pb!

    and reese’s dark chocolate cups are the best candies in the whole history of candy, imo.

  44. July 9, 2010 10:09 am

    Aww what a sweet gift from Danielle! You’re absolutely glowing, must be all the Reese’s? I didn’t realize how cheap guar gum is compared to xanthan, so I bought some yesterday! Made your crisp with peanut butter and oat bran with cinnamon protein ice cream. Delish!

  45. July 9, 2010 10:11 am

    Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite food combo in the world! The oats with the pb cups and whipped cream…so simple yet perfect. My favorite way to eat the two together is in a smoothie with chocolate milk, pb, ice, and banana. I also like ice cream! Or pb and chocolate swirled into yogurt. Endless combinations…

  46. July 9, 2010 10:14 am

    Heather, you look positively glowing! My favorite PB chocolate combo is 1/2 tbsp almond butter and a tbsp cacao nibs mixed into my morning oatmeal. Divine!

    OH.my.word. You are just gorgeous!!!!!! SO adorable πŸ™‚ I love homemade Reese’s cups but not actual Reese’s…weird! For how much of a pnut butter + chocolate freak I am, that was never my favorite treat. I much prefer caramel inside of my chocolate!

  51. July 9, 2010 10:27 am

    Awwwww, you look SO good!!! I passed the name of that book along to my sister– thanks so much for the rec! Sophie (the baby) thanks you too πŸ™‚

  52. July 9, 2010 10:35 am

    I would definitely say in ice cream! On oatmeal is good too! You look incredible! Have a great one!

  53. July 9, 2010 10:40 am

    I haven’t done it in ages, but I mixed some coco powder in half of my overnight oats and then PB in the other half and ate them together- it was SO good!

    You and your little bump are so cute! πŸ™‚

  54. July 9, 2010 10:54 am

    Chocolate & PB is my all time favorite combo! For dessert, I like to have a small cup of oatmeal or oat bran and top it with a few chocolate chips and a dab of PB. It’s the best, especially after you let it melt a little bit and swirl it all together πŸ˜‰

    You are so cute! Love the new baby clothes too πŸ™‚

  55. July 9, 2010 10:58 am

    You look great and glowing! And still rocking those jeans? Awesome!!

  56. July 9, 2010 10:58 am

    Aww, you look stunning!! So, so beautiful πŸ™‚
    Have you ever tried nutella and Pb – I think the hazelnut-peanut-chocolate combo is awesome! Especially on wholegrain toast – as a child this was one of my fave snacks πŸ™‚

    Have a beautiful day
    xoxo Mel

  57. July 9, 2010 11:12 am

    I need to try that protein ice cream concoction. I have been making and eating a ton of coconut milk ice cream but my tongue is asking for another flavor. The protein ice cream may be the way to go.

    My favorite pb/chocolate concoction is dark chocolate with a blob of peanut butter on top. I also really like vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate pieces and pb. Reese’s are a classic too. I am never unsatisfied with one of those babies.

  58. July 9, 2010 11:27 am

    I love the belly!

    Um, so the other day I bought some Dark Chocolate Dreams PB for the first time. I cannot stay out of the jar! It is like peanut butter crack! Seriously, SO DANGEROUS. πŸ™‚

  59. July 9, 2010 11:37 am

    Ha ha, I love the little mini Reese’s cups all nestled in the oatmeal! I like a high peanut butter to chocolate ratio, so the Reese’s eggs (or Christmas trees, or whatever other gimmicky holiday format they have) are my favorite.

  60. July 9, 2010 11:41 am

    Your belly is adorable!! Thanks for sharing

  61. July 9, 2010 11:41 am

    This isn’t the most “natural” but I take a no sugar added or ff fudgsicle and melt it a little in the microwave then stir in natural peanut butter for dessert…takes 1 min!

  62. July 9, 2010 11:55 am

    Love the belly update picture, you are so pretty, a glowing pregnant gal!
    I am an almond butter girl, so around here the favorite way to eat pb and chocolate comes from my son: peanut butter, banana and chocolate chip panini! My 8 year old favorite sandwich. From time to time he asks if he can have this for dinner (or lunch) and he makes it all himself by slathering bread with pb, laying some banana slices in it and filling the gap with chocolate chips, put it in the panini grill for a few minutes and you get a yummy and gooey mess of a sandwich, he loves it!
    Oh and yes, it is just as good with almond butter in place of the pb, I have tried!

  63. July 9, 2010 11:59 am

    Okay, I know everyone you come into contact with must be cooing and touching your belly and saying you’re glowing… but oh my god! Coo! I’m e-touching your belly! You are positively glowing!

    In terms of chocolate/peanut butter, I would have to say that my favorite combo is dipping chocolate teddy grahams into a jar of peanut butter… delicious… ooh, or a nutella + peanut butter sandwich.

    Oh I am loving all this choc and PB in this post! I see the PB Cups made an appearance, nice! You know I am a fan πŸ™‚ Glad I am not the only PB & Choc lover around here πŸ™‚

    I love the belly shot of you–you are just glowing! And I am impressed you’re in your Joe’s. Even though I stayed really small during my pregnancy (horrible morning/all day sickness will do that) I hated anything even touching my stomach so all my pants were elastic or drawstring. Didn’t really need maternity but deed need elastic b/c Skylar apparently didn’t want anything crampin’ her space LOL

    Have a beautiful weekend my sweet Friend!!! πŸ™‚

    Hmmm…that’s a tough question…i like chocolate pb in homemade pb cup form…or on top of ice cream! Friendly’s friend-z anyone?!

  67. July 9, 2010 12:09 pm

    Maya, I know – guar gum is only about $5 a bag on the Internet. Just ordered some myself. Can’t live without it, and so happy to hear you enjoyed the crisp with ice-cream. So decadent tasting, no?

    Heather, Yeah, the Reese’s aren’t so natural either. πŸ˜‰ Love fudgesicles and will have to try this!

  72. July 9, 2010 12:15 pm

    Lisa, Oh my gosh…a big Reese’s Easter egg plopped right in the middle of a bowl of oats. Sounds magical. OK, I’m already looking forward to Halloween so I can get a Reese’s pumpkin! πŸ™‚

  73. July 9, 2010 12:17 pm

    Mel, Believe it or not, I don’t think I have ever tried PB + Nutella. How sad for me. 😦

    Heath- my roomie was just telling me about her friend who has pregger-7 seven jeans..haha they are just regular Seven’s, except with an elastic waistband!! LOL sounds good to me, except that they’re probably a million dollars, so I’ll stick with leggings and dresses with the time comes πŸ˜€ OMG those dark choc reeses are SO good!! I might have to bring my own stash on my next fro yo run!

  77. July 9, 2010 12:31 pm

    Funny, I have been doing choco-PB blender ice cream the past 2 nights! I use your protein ice cream recipe, but minus the protein, plus 1/2 a frozen banana, plus 1 T each cocoa powder and PB. It’s like a Frosty with a PB aftertaste. πŸ˜€

  78. July 9, 2010 12:31 pm

    You look adorable. And chocolate and peanut butter is the best relationship ever. Agree.

    Home made Peanut Butter cups?! WOW. must make those…. sadly, here, we don’t get Reese’s cups..but i didn’t know it was possible to make your own! I remember when i was in New York a few years back, i bought a pack of three everyday without fail and devoured them straight away! I tried the white version too but they weren’t as tasty! Some lovelyy looking combos there…and i think you may be right…maybe the worlds best;) xx

    ps- you look absolutely glowing!!!

  82. July 9, 2010 12:47 pm

    Wow you look fantastic- I can’t believe you’re at 21 weeks!

    My favorite way to combine chocolate+pb is in soft serve form. There’s something about the swirl that gets me every time…topping it with crushed Reese’s pieces doesn’t hurt, either! πŸ˜‰

  83. July 9, 2010 1:10 pm

    I’m glad the package made it to you!! You & your HEABlette bump are adorable πŸ˜€

    Chocolate + PB are def. a match made in heaven. Actually, I think chocolate and ANY nut butter go well! I must re-stock my puffins…we have the cinnamon/original flavors but it just can’t compare to the PB πŸ˜€

  84. July 9, 2010 1:16 pm

    Danielle, I used to never understand the obsession with PB Puffins. I always swore that the cinnamon ones were the best…um, what was I thinking?!?

    Thanks again for the baby’s gift. Really, that was so kind of you, and I just keep staring at the little pants with the footie covers, and I can’t help but smile. πŸ™‚

    How is it that I haven’t tried Dark Chocolate Dreams yet? I must remedy this situation when I go grocery shopping tonight πŸ™‚

    I LOVE pb/chocolate combos. My favorite breakfast of all time is called Fudgy Oatmeal:

    microwave 1/2 c old fashioned oats, water (or milk), and 1T cocoa powder in the microwave for 2-3 minutes until desired consistency

    Stir and add in sliced banana. Top with peanut butter. Let pb get melty. Lick your chops and dig in πŸ™‚ Seriously, so so so so good. It’s great made with steel cut oats too (although you couldn’t use the microwave, obviously).

    I also make this combo for overnight oats – old fashioned oats. 0% greek yogurt, 1T cocoa powder, 1/4 c unsweetened vanilla almond breeze left overnight. In the morning, add the sliced banana and pb.

    I also like taking a spoon, dipping it into the pb jar, and then sprinkling a few ghiardelli dark chocolate chips on top πŸ™‚

    I ALSO like making the no flour pb cookies I saw on Julie’s Peanut Butter Fingers blog :

    http://peanutbutterfingers.wordpress.com/2010/05/13/flourless-peanut-butter-cookies/

    Before baking, I add a ghiardelli dark chocolate chip to each one.

    I really really like pb and chocolate together, if you can’t tell πŸ˜‰

    I am a plain girl when it comes to pb and chocolate. I like to fill up a spoon with pb, and then dip it into a bag of chocolate chips. Is that gross? Yeah, probably.

    But, I wouldn’t turn down any pb/chocolate combo!

    Damn girl! Whatchu tryin to do to me with all the PB and chocolate goodness?1?!? It’s like food porn up there! LOL I have a soft spot in my heart for Reese’s. It was always my favorite candy. I haven’t had one in so long…I think I’ll try your home made one soon!
    You look absolutely stunning. I adore baby bumps πŸ™‚

    Peanutbutterfingers, I almost passed out when I read your cookie recipe. πŸ˜‰

  99. July 9, 2010 2:53 pm

    Katie, Not gross. Genius!

  100. July 9, 2010 2:55 pm

    Tyrah, Yeah, I have to hide the PB Puffins from CD. A box of cinnamon Puffins lasts us 2 weeks, and a box of PB Puffins usually only lasts about 2 days. Interesting fact – CD does not like cinnamon. πŸ˜‰

  101. July 9, 2010 2:55 pm

    OMG pb and chocolate are a match made in heaven!!! I like to have them in smoothie form πŸ˜›

  102. July 9, 2010 2:57 pm

    I love the belly bump picture! Adorable!

    You look beautiful Heather!!! So cute and still very tiny…and what a thoughtful person Danielle is to send you that adorable outfit! When a friend of mine bought me (Baby C, rather) a little pair of baby jeans and a pink hoody I nearly cried. The clothes are so cute and little!!

    ALLLL of those combinations look SO yummy!! I’d have to say I will sometimes just grab a Larabar (any flavor will do for me) and spread it with peanut butter. Ok so maybe it’s not chocolate but it’s still damn good! πŸ™‚

  104. July 9, 2010 3:15 pm

    H – you look FABULOUS. Just fabulous. I rocked my old clothes until the end girlfriend. You go girl. Maternity clothes are so last year:) I want chocolate and peanut butter anything and everything. Seriously.

  105. July 9, 2010 3:16 pm

    I was literally salivating when I looked at those first few pics of PB and chocolate! Best combination ever!

  106. July 9, 2010 3:36 pm

    Chocolate and PB is a match made in Heaven. My favorite way’s to smother a banana in PB and role it in chocolate chips!! YUM!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE CARRIE/SEX AND THE CITY! so cheesy at times but definitely true! i love so many of the show’s quotes & this one is dead on… at least the chocolate/pb combo πŸ˜‰

    adorable outfit! bloggers are the nicest, seriously! you look like one hot mama-to-be! i hope i stay as fit and calm as you when/if i am ever pregnant!

    my fav way to inhale chocolate/pb is probably in a reese’s form. i had some froyo on 4th of july weekend that was moosetracks and had mini reeses in it – so delicious! i also love the maranatha dark chocolate peanut butter spread! great in oats and on toast or by the spoon

  108. July 9, 2010 4:50 pm

    my own dark choco & pb cups, so good. found here if your interested. http://vanillakitchen.blogspot.com/2009/04/peanut-butter-cups.html

    Still reading your blogs daily…. although I rarely post comments… but I figure there are a lot of folk like me.. who enjoy trying these new concoctions you come up with and being a bit voyeuristic and peeking into your life – especially during this joyous time!! I’m so happy for you and CD…the HEABlet is a lucky lucky girl…. and your baby bump is perfect! I am praying everyday for a healthy HEABlet and a joyful, safe delivery. God is good.

    I am eating a bowl of banana soft serve (from Gena @ Choosing Raw), with a scoop of almond nut butter and a tablespoon of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips!

    You look beautiful!

  112. July 9, 2010 7:56 pm

    Heather they do!!!! Pea in a pod maternity sells them I know that. So many designers make such stylish maternity clothes I will look out for good deals for you!

  113. July 9, 2010 8:36 pm

    Oh man, that food looks so good that i’m drooling on my keyboard! I laughed when i saw the theme of your post, i just finished a piece of toast with nutella and peanut butter! My favorite way to combine the pair? Probably a Lindt truffle. They make it all so creamy and sinful! YUM!

  114. July 9, 2010 8:39 pm

    you look glowing heather!! i’m so excited for you and CD!

    chocolate and pb? oh man…stuff french toast baby. or pancakes. freak’n awesome…

    My mom used to make chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge (with pb, honey and powdered milk, not cooked at all) and I would take a piece of each and layer them up and eat them together. That was amazing.
    In high school I frequented the vending machines and ate lots of Reeses Pieces. But one of the most amazing things I’ve had recently was: a Trader Joes oat flax tortilla covered with chunky almond butter and topped with two pieces of Lindt 85% dark chocolate, microwaved until the chocolate started to melt. It was super messy and I ruined the fleece I was wearing, but the combination of flavors and textures was so good I almost didn’t mind.

    OMG, all those wonderful pictures have me salivating. You look terrific and the outfit is so adorable. Miss those days! A favorite recipe around our house came from a teacher at my son’s school; she would make these brownies for my son’s hs basketball team and generously shared the recipe so I could make them for my son’s hs lacrosse team’s pasta party at our house as the boys love them. You prepare a box of triple chunk fudge brownie mix and add 1/2 package of Reese’s PB chips to that and put the mix into a 9×9 lightly greased pan. Then you mix a box of chocolate chip cookie mix and add 1/2 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/4 cup peanut butter to the mix. I shape that mix on wax paper to the dimensions of the pan and then plop it on top of the brownie mix already in the pan. Bake at 325 for 50 minutes or more according to your oven. They are best made 8 hours ahead of serving or they are too soft and gooey inside to cut. Made them last week at the request of one of my son’s friends for their bball game at our house. Unfortunately, his friend left before the brownies were served, and my son texted him to tell him what he was missing. I tried to save one for his friend, but my son called his friend up the next day to tell him that he was in the process of eating the last brownie! How cruel! The next batch will be all for his friend!

    You are the sweetest pregnant woman I ve ever seen! Even sweeter than your amazing puffins πŸ™‚

  119. July 10, 2010 6:02 am

    Annie, Thanks so much. πŸ™‚

  120. July 10, 2010 6:03 am

    Efi, I don’t know, those Puffins are pretty darn sweet…and addictive. πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  121. July 10, 2010 6:03 am

    It is indeed a flavor classic! Love all the fun you’re having with it!

  122. July 10, 2010 6:05 am

    Pat, OH.MY.GOSH, the damage I could do to that recipe right about now, and it’s barely 7 AM. Thanks for sharing! Definitely making these for the next party or potluck I attend. πŸ™‚

  123. July 10, 2010 6:06 am

    Sandi, Sounds like the ruined fleece was worth it. πŸ™‚ CD loves that 85% Lindt. Cheapest place I can find it is Target, and I bought him 10 bars last time I was there. Might have to steal one for a pb/chocolate quesadilla! πŸ˜‰

  124. July 10, 2010 6:08 am

    Thanks Kelli. I think we have a Pea in a Pod. I know I’ve seen it, just never paid much attention to it before. However, now I think I might need to make a trip! πŸ™‚

  125. July 10, 2010 6:09 am

    Heather, Great combo! πŸ™‚

  126. July 10, 2010 6:11 am

    You look so cute Heather!! Glad things are going well.

    Anything involving chocolate and peanut butter gets an A+ in my book!! πŸ™‚

    You’re so adorable! I have a feeling the heablet will love chocolate and peanut butter.
    My favorite way to enjoy it is in the form of a blizzard. So unhealthy but so delish.

  130. July 10, 2010 2:03 pm

    Oh man, I’ve been eating a TON of PB & chocolate lately. It’s the best combo ever. I think my most favorite one was a PB/chocolate mousse kinda thing. I wrote about it here: http://cleanteenkelsey.com/2010/07/08/the-most-creative-meal-of-the-day/

  131. July 10, 2010 2:17 pm

    Andrea, I bet you look beautiful. Twins – so exciting!!! πŸ™‚

  132. July 10, 2010 9:40 pm

    Heather! You are like one of the cutest Pregnant ladies, lol. And all of your ice-cream creations lately look fabulous. Also, I like the SITC Quote.

    Thanks CourtandWhit! πŸ™‚

  136. July 11, 2010 10:51 am

    You look beautiful!!!!

    Peanut butter cups used to be my all time favorite candy, but since I cannot eat peanut, I will just drool over here ; )

  137. July 11, 2010 11:28 am

    Pure2Raw, Vegan Nutella or coconut butter cups would probably taste even better! πŸ˜‰

  138. July 11, 2010 6:21 pm

    Aw heather you look so gorgeous, you are just radiant πŸ™‚

  139. July 11, 2010 6:26 pm

    HECK YES for our beloved Joe’s Jeans πŸ™‚ I’m really wishing I wouldn’t have had mine taken in when I was feeling skinny one day. Now they fit me as though I am 21 weeks pregnant, too 😦 Maybe this is reason to buy another pair?! πŸ˜‰

  140. July 11, 2010 8:47 pm

    Thanks Michal! πŸ™‚

  141. July 11, 2010 8:48 pm

    Lara, Yes, any excuse is good for another pair of Joe’s! πŸ™‚

  142. July 12, 2010 5:52 pm
