Ultimate Pretzel Crushed Peanut Butter Cookie Candy Bars

As I begin to write this, they are in the oven, I am a little afraid they are going to overflow, but they look amazing, and preparing them wasn't actually that bad at all!

Here's a link to the Baby Gizmo blog with the article on making them.

This is the final result:

This is my photo album of every step I took along the way :) enjoy.

These were the main ingredients in my adventure, not pictured is also the vegetable oil needed for the Peanut Butter cookie mix and the Triple Fudge Brownie mix!

First I smashed up the butter snaps from Snyder, I had never had these before, they're delicious!

Then I melted the butter in the microwave, this is actually one stick, I ended up using two sticks which is the recommended amount in the recipe.

Ready to mix this with 5 tbsp of sugar and make my crust.

Patted down my crust into my 8x8 pan even though they recommended 13x9 pan, this was the best I had haha.

Mixed up my Peanut butter cookie dough, I had never made these, they smelled delicious.

Patted it down into my already slightly packed pan, haha, I see a small problem ahead.

Oh my god yes. Putting the Reese snack cups into the 8x8 pan. Happiness.

They have been completed, now, for the final touch, the brownie mix.

Not sure why I took a picture of the egg for the brownie mix, but I did :).

Put the brownie mix with everything it required (water, oil, and the chocolate fudge it also brought included, and I mixed it up.

Would you look at that, it is ready to be poured :).

What a delightful sight, I was ready to cook this, sadly I forgot to turn the oven on so I sat around staring at it (washing everything) since my oven was pretty slow to heat up but overall, excitement levels were rising.

The final product before going in the oven.

And after 45 minutes, it was ready :).

The chocolate fudge kind of concentrated in the center which was a bit annoying but once I bit into it, not gonna lie, one of the best things I've tried. The crunchiness of the pretzels really make this dessert. I may try another one with a top layer of pretzels.. may be worth it.

I hope you enjoyed it :),
Daniel.

Food: Volume 2

The Food Guide: Volume 2 August marked the start of my 10th year in Atlanta, Georgia. My first 3-4 years were arguably a waste in the context of visiting places (still remember being blown away when I first ventured into Decatur), but I wanted to revisit my Food Guide now that I have frequented many locations around Atlanta and found the pockets that I really love. Before I had structured the guide from cheap to expensive, but this time I will break it down by neighborhoods, since I think that better represents Atlanta. Disclaimer, I also love beer so some of these may be bias to the beer world. I explicitly won't be mentioning breweries or bars because this would just get insanely long, but hit up Hop City, and check out every brewery in town. I particularly have been loving the atmosphere at Atlanta Brewing Co. so go check them out!

My Barcelona Guide

Long overdue, but having been to Barcelona a number of times, I have been wanting to write some of the secret parts of the city that I encountered, and that are worth seeing. It's worth citing that a lot of the restaurants were originally gotten from an amazing list of restaurants my doctoral advisor shared with me, and that a lot of the places I love going to were first shown to me by our program director, who knows Barcelona better than anybody I know.

Additional note: Barcelona runs on a different time schedule than other countries. Dinner at 9-10pm is very common, and people start going out around midnight (to bars). Clubs start around 2am and go until about 6am, so keep that in mind as you enjoy the city. They also have afternoon naps (siestas), so in the early afternoon, a lot of things may be closed. The summer is usually pretty packed regardless because its booming with tourists. I generally do not like crowded toursit-filled areas, but you have to experience them once. You…

Dazed and confused.

I kind of came to the conclusion that I needed to write this when I realized that I had gotten a little lost at work. I can go a little crazy with the number of things I try to do at any given time and well, that kind of work can easily overwhelm me. However, over the past few days I have realized and resparked my desire and love for the process.

It may sound a bit abstract but its a common theme among those who find themselves fortunate enough to enjoy every minute of every day of work. You see, a lot of life is a matter of perspective. A quick glimpse into consumer behavior and the study of a capitalistic society will tell you that people are very predictable and marketable beings.

A few years ago Matthew McConaughey gave a fantastic talk to the University of Houston, where he stated the following: "See, joy is always in process, under construction — it’s in the constant approach, alive and well —in the doing of what we are fashioned to do… and enjoying doing it." and the…
