Hello there! Happy Thursday! I am so super glad it’s Thursday already because I am off work tomorrow which makes it a 4-day weekend for me! Woowoo!
Today started off good. Back in the gym. Did the same workout I did on Tuesday – 10 minutes on the bike, 15 on the elliptical and 20 on the treadmill. Good cardio morning! I was feeling it in my legs this morning from all of the lunges and squats I did yesterday. I haven’t done anything like that in a while, so I’m not surprised I’m sore. Not Jillian sore, but sore nonetheless.
Last night when I got home I was in the mood to COOK! On the menu: meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn. Mmm. Once I got the potatoes peeled, cut and on the stove boiling and the meatloaf in the oven, I decided to make something fun for dessert. See, this past weekend I revamped my recipe book (now everything is in its own plastic page sleeve!) and I found a recipe that I printed off from a blog (I cannot for the life of me remember which one or else I’d give cred) for Peanut Butter Truffles. Also known as Peanut Butter Balls or Buckeyes. I don’t like chocolate, but I love white chocolate, so I used that for this recipe, which was, by the way, the easiest recipe ever.
Peanut Butter Truffles (or Balls)
1 ½ cups of Rice Krispies
1 ¼ cups of crunchy peanut butter
1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
½ cup of powdered sugar
Milk chocolate or white chocolate for melting and dipping
1) Put the first four ingredients into a bowl and mix. Use your hands, it’s easier and much more fun.
2) Once mixed, place in refrigerator for one hour.
3) After an hour, form mixture into small balls (or large ones, whatever).
4) Melt chocolate according to instructions on package.
5) Dip the … truffles into chocolate.
6) Refrigerate one hour to let harden.
Mine turned out totally ugly (remember these cookies? I’m not good at making baked goods look good!), but who cares, they taste DELICIOUS! And they’re not healthy at all, unless you count peanut butter as healthy (which I kind of do). So try them. You can thank me later!
And that’s all the knowledge I have for today. I know it’s Thursday, which means it’s Morning Playlist Thursday, but today I was on the phone all the way to work so I didn’t get to listen to any music. Boo. Next week.
Alright, I’m outta here. Have a wonderful rest of your day!!
