No Bake Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark (Friday Favorites)

This week I’m bringing you my recipe for my ridiculously addictive No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark. Believe me, you want this one in your arsenal people.

But first, its the end of another week and so its time for a little Friday Favorites action.  This link up lets me look back and remember the things that made me smile. Sometimes it can feel hard to do, but once you get going you realize there is always something.  Here are some of my random favourite things coming out of the past week!

Savoury Breakfasts

Me!? Savoury say what!? Coming from a girl who drops all her salivary glands for bananas, peanut butter, dates, cinnamon buns and scones, the fact that I’ve been on a savory breakfast kick has got me doing some double takes. But for real, I’m just loving the salty thing. And the cheese thing… And the egg thing.

Gluten Free Cheese Toast with butta + Turkey Bacon + raspberries

I also have this coffee right now that pairs perfectly with bacon, I swear (ps I’m a huge coffee pairing nerd). Weird, but I’m diggin it.

Confession: Totally scorched the top of my bun and tried to hide it. #noshame

Kids books!

Specifically, Robert Munsch books. I am currently rehearsing for a childrens’ production of a medley of different Robert Munsch stories and the whole process has taken me completely back to my childhood. So much nostalgia. My family definitely owned allll his books – at least all the older (best) ones – but I was surprised at how many I remembered.  Childrens’ books are just so special. The simplicity. The illustrations. The lessons. So so special. My child is going to read all the old classics that I did… I don’t care what he/she says.

Kabocha

Wow. Still going off this guy, but quickly making my way to the end. Biggest craving of the week = kabocha + peanut butter + broccoli. This may have happened numerous times (as well as finding its way into most/all meals).

Kabocha + peanut butter + love grown oats + milky goodness

Moments of solitude

I really needed these thing week. One was taken by actually skipping out on class (hush hush). I mentally just did not have it in me to sit through any sort of lecture, so I took myself to a cafe, wrote, and stared out at the rain. Far more productive.

Another was found in my rehearsal hall while it was completely empty. It was perfectly silent, so I enjoyed a romantic little dinner for one under the dim lights. These were my favourite moments of the week. They turned me around from some cloudy feelings.

Bright green sweatpants to be exact. Feeling sad? Nothing a little color can’t help with.

No Bake Freezer Treats

Specifically, this No Bake Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark which I’ve been having every. single. night.  I think it was actually a recipe-fail-turn-brilliant discovery I had a year ago, and have been making ever since.

Super easy and fast and made with simple, healthy ingredients. Eaten straight out of the freezer for a crunchy and sweet treat – especially welcomed on a summer’s evening!

    I so remember Robert Munsch books! Especially that first one you mentioned. My favorite childhood books was “The Christmas Witch” by Steven Kellogg. I made my mom check it out from the library like once every two weeks.
    Also, thank you for sharing the recipe for that bark!! Yum!

    I’m a big fan of savory breakfasts – and especially egg and cheese combos. I’m not as big of a fan of sweets, so I definitely lean toward the savory more often.

    I love love love children’s books – I think my favorite books are The Berenstain Bears or Arthur. I think I have every Berenstain Bear book and I cannot wait some day to read them to my kids!

    Awww ya! I definitely had Berenstein Bears as well, and my children will definitely know them too. No Arthur though – I thought it was only the show!

    Oh my goodness Robert Munsch books bring back so many beautiful memories for me! That sounds like such a neat production you’re in. I go through phases of being into salty breakfasts too and am similarly always like “who am I?!” haha. Quiet coffee shop time is happy place too. Glad to hear it did you some good <3

    I love having squash with everything too! I remember reading Robert Munsch books šŸ™‚ That brought back so many memories. I miss reading non-textbook books :’) Aren’t kids books the best?
