Wow!

So here you are at My Favorite Bake Shop.

Behind the Shop:
Have you ever gone somewhere and loved it, but then you couldn’t remember the name of the place a few weeks later?

There’s a joke that says Sammy got a new sign for his store: “FRESH FISH SOLD HERE.” Some guy comes around and says, “Hey Sam, of course you sell fresh fish. You don’t need to write ‘fresh’ on your sign.” So Sam remade his sign to say “FISH SOLD HERE.” Another guy stops by and says, “Why does your sign say ‘sold here?’ Do you sell fish down the street?” Since the customer is always right, Sam remade his sign to say “FISH SOLD.” A lady walks into the store and says, “Did you sell all your fish? It doesn’t look like it.” By the end of the day, Sam threw out all the new signs for his store and put up his old sign which says “FISH.”

If a store has a sign that says “Bake Shop,” one would think baked goods were sold. But how could you remember which Bake Shop it was? Where would you tell your friends to go to?

“You’d have to go to My Favorite Bake Shop!”

Have a great day!

Peanut Butter Eggs

I love making desserts. At some dinners I attend, the dessert is the main attraction. Did I also mention I love eating dessert?

My brother-in-law is one of those guys with a sweet tooth. For his 40th birthday, I gave him 39 chocolate bars with a pack of 40 flossers. I had to show the kids that you have to eat chocolate responsibly.

When Mr. Brother-in-Law’s son told me to “make something nice” for his bar-mitzvah, I couldn’t resist his request. I wanted to fill my big freezer with treats for him.

Well, three months of maternity leave came and went. I made zero (0!) treats for the bar-mitzvah. If I was going to make something, it had to be easy, and it had to be fast.

Behold, Peanut Butter Eggs. Everything that my nephew wants: peanut butter, chocolate, and frozen (it’s still hot in October).

All shaped and ready to freeze!

Peanut Butter Eggs

4c. powdered sugar
1 1/2c. peanut butter (Do not use natural)
1/4c. margarine or coconut oil, melted
2-3 Tbsp. water, as needed
2 1/2c. chocolate chips (I used 2c. 60% chocolate chips and it was just enough)
2 Tbsp. coconut oil

-If your powdered sugar is clumpy, make sure to sift it first.
-In a good-sized bowl, mix p. sugar, p. butter, and marg/coconut oil. Add water one Tbsp. at a time until it becomes a nice, workable dough–like play-doh. It might be a little crumbly.
-Form your dough into egg shapes. I like to work my dough. I make sure it’s mixed and shmushed nicely before I make the shapes.
-Freeze 1+ hours.
-Melt your chocolate chips with coconut oil using your preferred method: microwave, double boiler, or carefully watching it on the stove. Dip one half of your eggs in chocolate. Freeze about 10 minutes, them dip the other half.
-If you want, use your leftover chocolate to drizzle the top of your eggs.

Enjoy!
