Dressed Up Dark Chocolate Boxed Brownies

Hello everyone! Hope all is well with you guys and for all my fellow Texans that were affected by the hurricane, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers! #TexasStrong

As we get back to some normalcy around here, (bedtime and schedules went out the window during the storm) I decided to share this quick recipe for dressed up dark chocolate brownies I made from a boxed mix.

I mean…hello yummy goodness!! Get in my belly!!

 

For these yummy brownies all you need is:

1 boxed dark chocolate brownie mix

1/4 c. creamy peanut butter

4 tbsp. pecan chips

 

Instructions:

  1. Prepare cake-like brownies as instructed on the box.
  2. After adding your brownies to the pan, warm the peanut butter for a few seconds in the microwave just to loosen.
  3. Drop a spoonful of peanut butter into the batter evenly around the pan.
  4. Take a fork and swirl the peanut butter & chocolate back and forth almost like a marble effect.
  5. Sprinkle the pecan chips evenly around the pan and bake as instructed. Let cool and cut into squares. Enjoy!

The Best Banana Bread Ever

Hey guys…happy Wednesday! I always buy tons of bananas to snack on and we don’t always get to them fast enough. They start to ripen too quickly on the counter and then I’m over here searching for a recipe to get rid of them without having to trash them. I think I secretly do that just so I can make banana bread. lol!

Today I’m sharing this delicious Banana Bread recipe I found on cookinglight.com. I’ve tried quit a few recipes before and OMG, let me tell ya…this one is my fave! It’s so moist and full of flavor.

You’ll need a few staple ingredients from your pantry and one you may not use so much when baking…plain yogurt! That’s what makes this bread so moist.

I followed this recipe exactly, with the addition of 1/4 cup of chopped pecans right before I poured the mix into my baking pan.
