Peanut Butter Caramel Truffles

truffles on overtimecook

Peanut Butter Caramel Truffles are a little taste of heaven! Every now and then, I make something that's so delightful, words fail to describe it. These truffles are a perfect example. I originally made these truffles for a Tzedaka (charity) party. I probably dreamed up this crazy combination at the height of a chocolate craving, but whatever made me do it, they were a smashing success. Just as the party was starting, before much food was even touched, these truffles were gone. That's right, completely gone. All the poor souls who hadn't gotten there fast enough to try one were pretty sad. Needless to day, I needed to share this recipe with you folks. They're a little time consuming … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Hamantaschen

peanut butter filled brownie hamantaschen

A cross between a hamantasch and a peanut butter cup, these Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Hamantaschen will be the most delicious cookie you've tasted! I don't say this lightly, but I've invented the most delicious hamantaschen ever. I know, it's a big claim to make, but let's talk about the awesomeness of these cookies. Nowadays, everyone is scrambling to invent the cutest, prettiest, most exciting hamantaschen ever. And the ideas keep exploding. But here's the thing. I like pretty food. I like exciting food. Hey, I even like cute food. But for me, that's always secondary. First, in my book, will always be taste. If it tastes great, it's great. If it looks awesome - that's a … [Read more...]

Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies on Overtime Cook

These dense and crunchy Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies are a party in your mouth! Read on... I can't even tell you how many times I intended to post this recipe. I made it a whole bunch of times. And each time these adorable looking cookies got rave reviews. But somehow I never managed to write down the recipe. And worse, never got to photograph these cookies. And so for months, these cookies went un-posted. And that's a shame, because they're really delicious. So I sacrificed for all of you. I baked up yet another batch of these cookies. On a fast day, of all days. Big mistake. These smell amazing when they bake, and my entire family was quite unhappy with me, forced to smell … [Read more...]

Rice Krispy Treat Bark

rice kriispy treat bark on overtimecook

Today's post is really good timing. And no, I don't mean that this is a fabulous last minute Purim treat if you're still stuck on what to make for your Mishloach Manot (purim basket). Although it totally is a fabulous purim treat...etc. The reason this post is very timely is that there was in an interesting discussion on Facebook recently regarding recipe sources and credits and things. And the question came up if there's a possibility of complete coincidences in recipes. The answer? Yes. How do I know? Because of this recipe. Before I explain, let me say that recipe attribution is a very important issue, and one I feel very passionate about. But sometimes, two people might just have … [Read more...]

Brownie Bites with Peanut Butter Frosting

brownie bites 1

I recently came to an awful realization. I've been a horribly neglectful blogger. I am sorry. Really, I am. But this blog is almost a year and a half old, and to date, I only have one brownie recipe posted. Two, if you count my brownie pies. But clearly that isn't enough. I mean, is there even such a thing as "enough" brownies? I don't think so either.  I realized this as I was going to sleep late on Saturday night. (And if you stalk my Instagram feed, you know that was about a million o'clock, when most of you were probably near waking up.) Anyway, I rectified the situation less than 24 hours later. And I think I made up for over a year of no brownie posts with these amazing treats. … [Read more...]

Baked Peanut Butter or Nutella Donuts

baked donuts

Remember how I recently discussed how hard I find the process of making decisions? Well tonight's post is basically a post script to that one, because if you thought deciding between pecan pie or brownies was hard, imagine trying to decide between chocolate glazed peanut butter donuts or glazed nutella (chocolate hazelnut) donuts! I know, it totally boggles the mind. Well I, for one, don't believe in making such difficult decisions. So I thought to myself...why choose? Yep, that's right. I made both peanut butter donuts and nutella donuts. Which means, if you think about it, that these donuts are super easy to make. Because I started making them late at night, and still had time and … [Read more...]

Cookie Dough Thumbprint Cookies and a Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook Review

Cookie Dough Thumprint Cookies

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to have been given the opportunity to review The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook, by Lindsay Landis (of Love and Olive Oil Fame). I have been a fan of Lindsay's for ages, and from the minute I picked up this book I was amazed by her creativity and ideas. At First Glance: I loved this cookbook from the moment I picked it up. Before I even read any of the recipes, I noticed that the pictures (all taken by Lindsay herself- speak of talented!) are unbelievably eye-catching and drool-inducing. It's hard to look at this cookbook when you're on a diet (trust me, I had to do it!) because you will want to make every single thing in it. And you won't like not … [Read more...]

Party Pictures and Goodies Round Up

Party Pics- Table 1-2

There are no recipe in this post, so if that's all you're here for, sorry to disappoint. However, I am going to show you what I made for my sister's engagement party and how I displayed it. Partially as an explanation of why I disappeared for a couple of weeks, and partially in case you want ideas of something to make for a party. Edit: by request, I have added freezability (I don't think that's a real word) information to each item. Please comment or email me for more details. (Excuse the poor quality of the pictures. By the time I had finished setting up I had a very short window of time to take them before people arrived and started to demolish the treats.) Firstly, the set-up. My … [Read more...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Cookies

chocolate-peanut-butter-crunch-cookies

I spent my first year after high school in a fairly well supervised school dorm. Lunch was provided to us at school, and suppers were served in a large lunch room in the second floor of the school building. Breakfast was where we had a little leeway. Each Sunday we had to give in a grocery list of items we wanted for the week's breakfast. The list was typically comprised of bread, fruit, oatmeal and cereal. Snacks, however, weren't provided by the school. Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention. And as poor students, there was certainly a necessity for free snacks. So we got creative. We improvised. We discovered that the folks in charge of our grocery order didn't differentiate … [Read more...]
