Chocolate Peanut Butter Heaven!

Our house takes on a different pace in the Summertime. The last day of school brings about a new found freedom, each year. We take the days as they come, dictating a slower pace. A pace that allows us to do whatever strikes our fancy.

Sprinkles Bakes is often a source of sugary inspiration and when I saw her post on Friday, I knew that this would be on the menu sometime soon.  I love peanut butter and surprisingly, so does Mr. Michie. The majority of British people I know wouldn’t touch a jar of peanut butter with a ten foot pole. But, Mr. Michie loves it! He even eats peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!

After a long day at work on Monday (we each went in to clean and reorganize our spaces), we came home famished and ready for something delicious. Mr. Michie made a quick Beef Stroganof for dinner while I whipped up this:

I didn’t think we could be patient enough to wait the 3 hours for it to set up, but we made it, just! It was heavenly! I made a few changes, in that I was out of cocoa powder, so when I added the roasted peanuts on top, I also added a few chocolate chips. It taste like a Reece’s Cup on crack. If you like peanut butter this is a recipe for you! Pure bliss!
