Watch out toffee crack.

There is a new, easy, addicting dessert in town.

I had my heart set on making Heather's Peanut Butter Vanil-licious Cookies.
But while I impatiently wait for my sugar to turn into vanilla sugar, I still had peanut butter on the brain.

Then Celeste had to go and get her fudge recipe published on the dreamy Tasty Kitchen site.  I was powerless to resist. Especially since I had every single ingredient in my pantry.

It's really, really good.  
Super dangerous to make when your kids are napping and your husband is at work, good.
Jump off the computer and get another piece good.

I suggest making a bunch of Ashley Ann's adorable Paper Brownie Boxes while the fudge chills.  That way you will be forced to share the goodness instead of eating it all yourself.  Trust me.  It will call to you.  Incessantly. 

{In case you are dying to know where my cake stand is from, I would be...  it's from Costco.  Months ago. They sold out of a truck full of them in about a day.  A wild goose chase was involved.  Friends from other states were involved.  I could probably pay a years mortgage reselling them if I could get my hands on any more.  But they are gone, baby, gone.  Sad face.  Wah wah.}

  1. Seriously?! Jeepers Creepers! I was doing SO good today! Then you have to go post a recipe that I too have ALL the ingredients for. I even planned on running tonight. Maybe I'll make them and then go running and reward myself when I get home :D

  7. You are making me very very hungry for them. Not good. And yes, I wish I had that cake plate. It is fabulous. And if you got it at Costco that means it probably came with a fabulous price too. more jealousy. I am going to have to try out this recipe.

  8. Dude. Seriously. Why did you have to post this? My period is about to start & I am PMSing and craving sweets SO bad. Now, I HAVE to make this.
    And, so glad I was one of your recipients of the beloved cake plate...I use them ALL the time!

  9. There is a scalloped cake stand at Williams-Sonama. It is just not turquoise (bummer!) or as cute as yours. Now I'm off to make dessert!

  15. I've been visiting your blog for a couple months now I think...but I'm quiet and shy at first. So it took me a while before I could speak up. But it's been long enough and now I just have to tell you that
    YOU ARE AN ENCOURAGEMENT TO ME! Thank you!!! I love how bright and cheery your blog is. I love the verses you post on Sundays. I love your story too.
    Thanks for blogging. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for being you!

  16. Yum!!
    Fortunately, my obsessive compulsiveness (and your twitter feed) led me to costco approximately 1.5 hours after you posted about the cake stand and have my very own matching one! :)

  18. I still kick myself for not getting those cake stands when I saw them. I guess I'll have to make some peanut butter fudge to help me feel better!

  19. YES!! I've been dying to try this since Celeste first posted it... Soon. Soon.

  20. Yum! My favorite peanut butter fudge recipe is from Alton Brown. It's not technically fudge I think because you don't really have to cook anything (bonus!) but it's sooooooo good.
