Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Peeps have begun their annual invasion of the grocery store candy aisle. I found a bunch of peeps recipes that involved melting them down into bright blue liquid to stir into popcorn, or heating them up and squashing them between two graham crackers, their drooping beaks peeking out from under a layer of molten chocolate. These peeps massacres made me kind of depressed, so I decided to go with a recipe that kept each Peep relatively intact: s’mores brownies with Peeps. No Peeps are harmed in the making of these brownies. At least until you eat them. Enjoy! [Shugary Sweets]
Because of my hanger issues (that wasn’t a typo — I get irrationally angry when I’m hungry), I must carry snacks with me at all times. But finding the perfect, portable snack can be difficult. Must be healthy-ish. Must not get squished in purse. Must not require refrigeration. Must keep me full so I don’t get hangry again after five minutes. KIND Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt bars meet all my snack criteria. The blend of almonds, peanuts, and walnuts with a touch of sea salt is sweet and savory at the same time. Even better, its got 7grams of fiber and 6grams of protein for maximum snack efficiency. [$20.60/ Box of 12, Soap]
