You see, my middle brother (I have 3) has a special nickname that I call him. In fact, all of us have special nicknames. Mainly because I couldn’t pronounce my syllables when I was younger. haha!
Me and the bro’s at my wedding.
Scott (aka Scotty Potty) is in the black, Jeff (aka Fuffy) is in the blue, and Chris (aka WooWoo) is the bald one. WooWoo, you know we refer to your baldness like everyday! Oh and me? They call me Whittle Windsay, or just Whittle for short.
All my brothers are SO SO different. I relate to them all in some way or form, and I have to admit it’s mainly through sarcasm and jokes. Hey, when you grow up with 3 older brothers, you just don’t know any different. How I got to be the least bit “feminine” still baffles me.
Anyway, Fuffy’s birthday was right around April Fools. I decided to play a little birthday joke that just might have been for his own good.
In Fuffy’s world, french fries are a vegetable and Reese's PB cups are a source of good fat (at least thats kinda true?). And salads.......well, his exact words are “ lettuce is 90% water, so why do I need to eat water when I drink water?” Haha, gotta love my brother. So for his birthday I made him his very own chocolate peanut butter cups. And guess what, they are HEALTHY! But don’t tell him that. He still thinks they are just mega sized Reese's cups.
Haha! Jokes on you FUFFY!
Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Cups (GF/Dairy Free)
- 1 cup sugar (I used NuNaturals baking sugar)
- 1 cup Organic peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup Caramel Chips
- Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter (for topping)
Preparation1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease muffin cups or mini muffin cups and set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the 1 cup sugar, peanut butter, caramel chips, and egg. Roll peanut butter and caramel mixture into balls; Press and flatten the PB balls into each muffin cup using your hands. Should make about 12-15 large cups or 18-20 mini cups. Then take about 1/4 cup dark chocolate pb and place it in ziploc bag. Cut the corner and use it as a frosting decorator tube. Click here for better a description. Then squeeze the Dark Chocolate PB from the tube/bag into your muffin cups. 2. Bake about 15 minutes or until edges are set and bottoms and edges are lightly browned.
We kept a few for for ourselves. In fact, they were awesome as a post run RECOVERY snack along with some milk….I mean HONEY MILK!!
Anyone else trick their friend or family members into something healthy? I know I ‘m not alone here! I remember the first time I gave my HEALTHY BITES to my nieces and nephews. I had to tell them they were cookies just to get them to try a bite. Now their hooked! Love it!
Okay my friends. Off to enjoy the rest of the weekend we have left.
5 days and counting for this HONEY of a DEAL
