Buckeye Bars

I decided to share a treat....
Just in time...
For the Buckeye game on Saturday....
They are one of my favorite chocolate & peanut butter treats.
Buckeye Bars.
A friend shared them a few years ago... 
And I have not found a tastier version yet.  
But before we get to the bars...
Can I get an O-H.....

So let's get started on these bars.

You'll need peanut butter and chocolate...

And a couple of other ingredients.
In fact, I bet you have everything you need in your kitchen right now.  

Super simple and fast to make.  

Here is the recipe:

Buckeye Bars

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar.  

for the topping:
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter

On low heat in a medium size saucepan, melt peanut butter and butter together.
Remove from the heat and add powdered sugar. 
Pat into a 13x9 inch pan.

In a separate smaller saucepan, combine chocolate chip and peanut butter.  
Heat slowly until melted. 
Pour over peanut butter mixture and chill. 
Cut into squares and enjoy.  

If you are a Michigan fan... bad things will happen if you eat these bars.....

Enjoy and let me know if you make them and how they turned out!
Go Bucks!!!

Ohio- The Heart of it All

I made some Ohio cookies.
Simple Ohio Cookies.
For a friend.
Whom I miss.  
She is far away.
Far Far away from Ohio.

I wanted to send her a surprise.
Something that meant something to both of us.
She stayed in Ohio for over a year.

And in that year, I was lucky enough to find a funny, bright and sweet person.
A friend.
I miss laughing with her in the office, seeing her Starbucks cup in hand.
I miss her classic closing- "Okay.. Bye Bye".
I also loved that she wanted to experience everything about Ohio and Columbus.
She really pushed me to fall in love with Ohio all over again.  

I know that we shall see each other again someday.
When I can afford to travel....
But, in the meantime.
Miss You Sophie!
And Ohio Misses you as well!
