Why I should have avoided Pinterest….

My sister in law has been on Pinterest from the start and alway comes to family parties with the best stuff. My stance has been to avoid the website because I knew I would be in trouble if I ever went there….but I finally did. And our house looks like it! But before I get around to showing my home photos I want to share these cookies that my family made…after I found it on Pinterest.

Our first attempt at 'melting snowmen' cookies.

After the first bite...

Where yellow snow comes from....

Where yellow snow comes from….While we were making our second batch of these cookies one of my sons said ‘We should use some ‘yellow’ snow’ and the idea for this guy was born.

An army of melting snowman.

    If you love chocolate and peanut butter, then this cake is for you!
    1 box (18.25 oz) devil’s food cake mix
    3 eggs
    1 cup buttermilk
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    2 cups chopped peanut butter cups (about 8 oz) plus more for garnish)
    8 oz chopped dark chocolate
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

    1. Heat oven to 350. Coat 2 9″ round cake pans with non-stick cooking spray.
    Line with waxed paper and coat with more cooking spray
    2. In a large bowl, beat cake mix, eggs, buttermilk and vegetable oil on low for
    30 seconds. Increase speed to medium-high; beat for 2 minutes, scraping down
    the side of the bowl after 1 minute. Fold in 2 cups of the chopped peanut butter cups.
    3. Divide batter between the prepared pans. Bake at 350 for about 34 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let layers cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Turn out cakes onto wire racks and let cool completely.
    4. Frosting – Place chopped dark chocolate in a medium size bowl. Bring cream just to a boil and pour over chocolate. Whisk until choclate melts. Add peanut butter and whisk until smooth.
    5. Trim top of cake layers flat with a serrated knife. Put 1 cake layer on a cooling rack
    and place on a baking sheet. Pour 1 cup frosting on top; spread evenly with spatula. Top with remaining cake layer. Pour remaining frosting over the top, allowing to spill over the sides. Smooth top and sides with spatula. Refrigerate 1 hour to set.
    Transfer cake to serving platter and garnish with remaining chopped peanut butter cups.

    Oh my gosh adorable! Too funny Stacy-I JUST signed up for Pineterest last night because our daughter is getting married in September of THIS year! We won’t have a “wedding planner” so I decided to see what all the rave was on Pineterest. WOW what a help THIS is going to be. Glad we both took the plunge!
    On a side note…Jack my Grade 2 Paint is doing great. I was worried with winter he’d show signs of deteriorating but as long as I keep him blanketed (we live in the U.P. of Michigan ) and he isn’t ridden, you’d barely know there is anything wrong.
