Reese's Peanut Butter Egg Banana Bread

Easter is long gone but for those of us who still have leftover candy there are not too many recipes that call for Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, and as you can see I have a few. I love these things but I think it is safe to say that I have eaten my share for the season. As I also had some bananas I thought this might be an interesting recipe, after all who doesn't like peanut butter and bananas, throw in some chocolate and you have perfection!

This is a great recipe and it makes two loafs so if you are not too sure of the chocolate and peanut butter than you could try one of each.

Banana Bread Recipe


1 cup softened butter
2 cups Sugar
4 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
4 cups of flour
6 ripe bananas
15 small or 7 large Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs chopped


Prepare two pans with cooking spray and set aside. Preheat over to 325. Cream together butter and sugar, add eggs and blend together. Then add the smashed bananas.  In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to the wet. Mix only until the flour is incorporated. Then  add the chopped peanut butter eggs. Pour into prepared pans.  Bake for 1 1/4 hours or until a knife comes out clean. Set on wire rack for 5 minutes, then turn bread out of pan and let cool. If you can wait that long.

I was not too sure that I would like the peanut butter eggs, so I made one loaf of each. The above photo has a lot of chopped up Reese's Eggs, you do not need to put that many in your batch. It is your preference.

I made a plain loaf also, and if you want you can add nuts to it.

I hope you try this recipe, it is great! Frankly I have tried many banana bread recipes and this one is my favorite.

Have a great day!

Slutty Brownies

What do you get when you take,

 a roll of chocolate chip cookie dough,

 a box of brownies

and some Oreo's?

Yes, I do mean, all three items in the same recipe!

 Only the biggest recipe in blog land for the past few months.

  I am not sure where the recipe originated or if Rose from  The Londoner, made it up but she calls them the Slutty Brownies.

In fact, I read in the newspaper that Jessica Simpson spoke of these very brownies on a late night TV show and then was lambasted for using such vulgar terminology and degrading women.  Whatever you want to call them, everyone that I gave them to loved them!

The recipe is very simple:

Take a 9x9 baking pan, line with foil and spray with cooking spray. Press roll of cookie dough into the bottom of the pan. Then take the Oreo cookies and press them into the cookie dough, use enough to line the cookie dough. Finally, mix up brownie mix using the directions on the box. Pour the mixture over the Oreo's and cookie dough. Then bake the entire mixture for 45-50 minutes and a toothpick comes out clean.

What do you think? Does this look like something you would make? I did taste these brownies, and they are not for the faint of heart, there is a lot of sugar here but they are delicious!

If you try them please let me know, I want to know what you think.

Have a great day!

Cadbury Creme Eggs 100 and 1 ways

Image Pine Cones and Acorns Blog

Cadbury Eggs were first created in 1923 by the Cadbury Brothers, but weren't enjoyed in their current form until 1963. Unlike many other kinds of candy that are available, Cadbury Eggs are only around at this time of year so if you are a fan you better buy a bunch to have after the holidays.

If you are looking for a little twist on the Cadbury Creme Egg here are a few recipes I have found around the Internet.
