Buckeyes

Like just about any recipe I make with peanut butter and chocolate, I dedicate this one to my sister, Holly, who is a PB-choc fanatic. Also, she’s an Ohio State Buckeye! These buckeyes are so simple to make, I’m sure she could whip them up in her college apartment. Nudge, nudge, Holly.

Raw chocolate fudge with walnuts

This was my favorite fudge of the batch! Like Caitlin’s peppermint fudge from yesterday, this used a couple of special ingredients to stay a little more fluffy and less dense than fudge made with condensed milk.

Peanut butter fudge with chocolate chips

This fudge got a little crumbly on me, quite possibly because I used natural peanut butter. But you’re not the queen of England, you can tolerate a crumb or two.

Rice wrappers are the best. They make for an incredible base for a simple, almost no-cook, quick meal. But fair warning, they do take a little practice to get perfect (and I do not have a perfect roll just yet).

    This meal was one-half what I was craving at the moment and one-half what I happened to have in the fridge. Is that the best way to cook or what? If the full recipe doesn't tickle your fancy, at least bookmark the sauce recipe --- I was loading more sauce into my wrap as I ate. Attractive, yes?

This meal was one-half what I was craving at the moment and one-half what I happened to have in the fridge. Is that the best way to cook or what? If the full recipe doesn’t tickle your fancy, at least bookmark the sauce recipe. It would be great for lettuce wraps, chicken salads or slopping up with leftover tofu like a pig (guiltyyyy).

Peanut butter and salsa was not a flavor combination I ever would have considered --- let alone a combination that is completely delicious. Don't knock it until you try it, I guess! The bits of kale were my favorite part because the PB/salsa sauce really stuck to those greens.

I didn’t plan on doing a third PB&J recipe for the guide, but I got an urge to make scones over the weekend and this recipe popped up. I had everything I needed so I figured, why not? These scones were by no means too dry, either, and I think the peanut butter helped with that.

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (I used natural)
  • 2 tablespoons milk, plus more for finishing
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cup jam or jelly
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • few tablespoons oats (optional)
  • few tablespoons flaxseed (optional)

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the butter cubes and mix with your hands until the mixture looks sandy. Mix the peanut butter in with your hands as well. Add the milk and yogurt. The dough should be soft but sticky, and you may need to add more milk as you go if the mixture is too dry.

Place the dough on a lightly floured Silpat or sheet of parchment paper and form into an 11-by-9-inch rectangle, about 1/2-inch thick. Spread the jam over the dough and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Fold one long side of the dough toward the center, then fold the opposite side over that to form three layers, in the same way you would fold a business letter.

Press lightly on the top of the dough to seal it. Slide the dough, still on the Silpat or parchment paper, directly onto a baking sheet.

Brush the top of the dough with milk and (if using) sprinkle with oats and flaxseed.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden.

Once the scones have cooled, cut into either squares or triangles.

Makes about 8-10 individual scones.
