Homemade peanut butter cups!! They are dangerous yes they are. YES THEY ARE! THEY ARE TOO!!! Ok…it’s late and I’m blogging when I should be in bed so excuse the craziness I’m about to unleash on you. Here it goes. Turn away!! turn away!!
They are dangerous! They are like stealthy little ninjas who want to sneak into your mouth. (Need to be sleeping crazy talk here. Yes, I am acknowledging the insanity spewing from my fingers. So what. I think I do my best blogging when I need sleep. It makes for a more interesting read. 😉 I do believe that is the sleep deprivation talking) Super dangerous ninjas. So dangerous you really shouldn’t have them in your house. Nope. Because if they are there, they will sneak into your mouth. Aaaacck!
I was too smart for the butter cup ninjas (awwww isn’t that a cute nickname for ninjas) the first time I made them. I’ve made them three times now. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong with the recipe but I keep coming up with extra peanut butter filling. So you know I had to use more chocolate and of course make more ninjas. Can’t let good peanut butter filling go to waste!! And oh my gawd there were so many of them. I like peanut butter cups but no one should eat them in the amounts that I had just made. So, that first time, I sent Alan off to work with the tricky little bastards. No sneaking into my mouth. No siree bob!
Nathan didn’t much care for my pluck to stand up to those ninjas. He was won over by their ninja ways. He was all, “ohhhh noooo and waaah daddy took all my ninjas!!” (ok he didn’t call them ninjas. He called them chocos or something.)
But they pulled this like jedi mind trick thing on me. The second time I made them, I tried to reduce the amount of filling so I wouldn’t be drowning in ninjas. But I STILL ended up with too much filling! So, of course, I made more ninjas.
But…but…wait for it…that was not the jedi mind trick part. The mind trick was, that second time, I didn’t send any of them away (say that in a horror story voice with maniacal laughter after).
Noooope!! They stayed in my fridge waiting to be all heeeya (do ninjas make that noise? Ummm maybe not because that’s not quiet and covert like but anyhoo) we’re IN YOUR MOUTH! (note here: they need to stay in the fridge because they get all melty since they are such sweethearts underneath their tough bad ass ninja selfs. Ok, not really, it’s untempered chocolate. To knock some backbone in them, or in not needing sleep talk, to stop them from being melty, temper them.
Those ninjas, they get in your blood man. Their siren call beckons and you NEED to invite them into your home. So, of course I made them again and hoarded them again. No sending my beloved ninjas to strangers.
See their powers!! I cannot escape. Fourth time here we come! Oh maybe you want some ninjas in your mouth too?
