Do you ever just go to sleep with every intention in the world of going to your 8am Psych lecture but then your husband accidentally sets alarms for 5:00am AND 5:30am, waking you up both times; when you finally fall asleep again, your husband has a sleep spasm and accidentally flails his arm into your face to jolt you awake again; you decide to just wake up a little later and skip a shower to get to school on time; and you wake up for a last time to your dog literally vomiting on you (he ate too much too quickly -_-), THEN PEEING ON YOU?
Because I just had that morning. It sounds like a goddamn movie right? A goddamn horror movie. (more…)
I wasn’t sure what to title these because I know that there are so many different names for the same bars: magic bards, hello dolly bars, and seven layer bars. But more than name confusion, I didn’t even know if I should call them by their original name because at this point they are WAY more than that. In addition to the traditional chocolate, pecans, coconut, and sweetened condensed milk, I packed in here some peanuts, almond slivers, pretzels, white chocolate chips, and caramel. PLUS, I exchanged the graham crust for a gluten free almond-date base.
But the real star here is the sweetened condensed coconut milk.
Let’s firstly send a huge thank you to The Viet Vegan for the delicious peanut butter cup recipe that made these cupcakes possible.
I have made this recipe three times consistently, and it is pretty reliable. I would love to have shared it with you all earlier, but they were just so good that we kept eating them all…
Even with this batch, I made 12 and told Mitch that I needed at least 8 for pictures. The next morning, I had six left. The morning after that (the day I finally had time to take some pictures), I had four sad little spared cupcakes.
