Picture the scene.......

. . . . Fleetwood Macs' Albatross rhythmically pulsating to a soft crescendo...........

...... the camera slowly panning into a sumptuous and mouth watering treat.......

....... a husky yet sensual female voice breathes:

This is no ordinary Peanut Butter Cup.

This is a hand crafted, Triple Chocolate Enrobed, Sweet Peanut Truffle.


Well it sounds good doesn't it?!!!! I made them myself from a Nigella recipe. I just love Reeces' Peanut Cups so jumped at the thought of making my own last week. And they were Delicious. With a capital D. Katrina came over to, erm supervise, her being the queen of all things baking, and even she, who has held a life long detest of peanut butter, could not get enough of them. The recipe made a batch of around 52, and between myself, Lee, Katrina and my mum, they were all gone within two days!!! (And I will point out that the McKenna System seems relatively unharmed for it too. I only ate them when I was hungry lol!!!).

I knew there was a Domestic Goddess in me somewhere!!!

Although the feeling soon disappeared when I had to scrape skets of melted chocolate off every kitchen surface and appliance. I bet Nigella doesn't have to do her own cleaning up. Harruuuumph.

Catch ya later lovelies :)

Can you ship those internationally?!?! They look super delicious! You know, peanuts are protein so it was like eating little protein snacks. Bet Paul'd be fine with that.
