Cookies and Popcorn

So I couldn't stand it anymore. I had to make something. So last Saterday when I went to a friends party I made something simple: Peanut Butter Popcorn. Let me tell you it went FAST! I mean people were gathered around the bowl!

Curtosy of Annie's Eats (which is an AMAZING blog) here it is:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn ( used two bags of the microwave kind cause I'm cool like that)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. butter
2 tsp. brown sugar
coarsely chopped semi-sweet chocolate, or chocolate chips

Line two baking sheets with wax paper. Pop popcorn. Spread popcorn in an even layer on prepared baking sheets. Combine peanut butter, butter, and brown sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second intervals and stir, until melted and able to drizzle it. Drop the peanut butter mixture in spoonfuls over the popcorn and gently toss to coat evenly (mix by hand if necessary though VERY STICKY). In another microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate in 20 second intervals until fully melted. Drizzle over the popcorn. Let the chocolate set before serving. Store in an airtight container.

it's very tasty. Trust me. I also ATTEMPTED to make Jagerdoodles but those are very hard to bake for some reason! They kept burning. I WILL try to make them again but I have to have the right time to do it. Like another party.

And last night I felt like a mad scientist in the kitchen!

Never put on Julie and Julia when you have an itch for baking. I started mixing ingredients and came up with THIS cookie. Sadly I dont remember what i even put in it but melted chocolate chips. I basicaly mixed it until it had the right texture and taste. I only used egg whites don't worry. But it turned out pretty good!
