Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bugles

I have had a week…a  week that I am going to be happy to see gone.

With this yucky week I learned a few life lessons:

#1 If it looks crazy and talks crazy..well, it’s probably crazy.

#2  The Rolo McFlurry is the perfect ice cream dessert.

#3 Never underestimate power in numbers.

And finally…the most important lesson I learned…
It’s a biggie so listen up…

Never EVER pose in a picture with you chin resting on your fist.

Pause and let that sink in.

Chins and fists should never meet unless you are Rocky Balboa trying to down Ivan Drago.


I see people posing like this on a fairly regular basis and I can’t help but wonder why they are doing it…

Like maybe their head is so heavy that they have to hold it up with their fist?

Or thy are so bored with someone trying to take their picture (ho-hum) that they need to rest their busy chin.?

Or maybe they just ate a bunch of beef jerky and their chin is tired from all the chewing?

Either way I don’t trust it…NOT AT ALL.


I was told by a friend recently that sometimes people are asked to “chin rest” to disguise a double chin.

Let’s be frank…your fist is hiding nothing.

It doesn’t really make you look smarter, or thinner or more thoughtful…

What it does is give you a one way ticket to Tool-ville.


My kids do a good fist/chin impression.  It has become a running  joke in our house.

Don’t they look smart?

While we are on the subject…there are a few poses that rank up there with the fist/chin…most frequently seen as facebook profile pics.

How about the ghetto face, usually accompanied by a gang symbol or a peace sign?

Or the sideways face, ala Paris Hilton?

What about the creepy gaze?

Or the open mouthed smile?

The list really goes on and on…and I KNOW you all are going to comment and remind me of some other horrendous poses.  I know this because you are all cool and would never, EVER pose for an open mouthed, sideways ghetto faced, creepy gazed, fist/chin picture.


So now that I have gotten that off my chin (hehe) let’s move on to treats.

Easy ones.

Made with Bugles.

Sound good?

Start with your bag of Bugles.

Mix some peanut butter and powdered sugar together…

Give it a splash of milk and mix it up…

Fill a  piping bag or a ziplock with the edge snipped off with the sweetened peanut butter.

And then squirt it in to your Bugles.

Repeat over and over…

Then melt some chocolate.

I used Dove Milk Chocolate because it is delicious.

And I dipped ’em.

And then I froze them.

And then I ate them up, one at a time 🙂


Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bugles

  • Author: Cookies & Cups


  • 1 (7.5 oz) bag of Bugles
  • 2 (9.5 oz) bags of Dove Milk Chocolates..use whatever chocolate you most prefer
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2+ Tbsp of milk


  1. In a large bowl combine your peanut butter and powdered sugar. Add milk 1 Tbsp at a time until it’s smooth. (I used 2 Tbsp)
  2. Beat until smooth.
  3. Using a piping bag or a ziplock with the edge snipped off pipe the peanut butter into the Bugle.
  4. Melt your chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute on 50% power, stir and repeat for 15 seconds until melted.
  5. Dip the peanut butter end of the Bugle into the melted chocolate and set on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
  6. When all are dipped put in freezer until set and ready to eat.


I used Milk Chocolate for these, but that doesn’t set up hard, so if you prefer you can use candy melting disks or semi sweet chocolate. Also I like to eat these frozen, but you certainly don’t have to. These are best if eaten the same day you make them.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. So I am in charge of giving the teachers a monthly treat to tell them thanks all year long on how they are doing with my kids….and I am going to have to make these for them…they will be simple to the point & with a quick bag & tag they will look amazing! Thank you soo soo much for all the yummy stuff you make!

  2. Bettie

    I had to wipe my mouth (drool) after looking at these fantastic treats. Labor Day weekend will certainly be better with these…if I can wait a week. Thanks for such a great idea.

  3. The photo of the kids is adorable. What patience you have to stuff all these little bugles and then to dip them all. I’m sure they disappeared in much less time it took to create them and certainly much less time than it took get you back up and running. Happy that your nightmare is over and that now you can throw that chin of yours back in a hearty and relief filled laugh. Welcome back 🙂

  4. Jenny

    I can’t smile with my mouth open? I mean, like with my teeth showing?

    Wait, you STUFFED Bugles? That has to be the smartest idea anyone has ever had.

  5. The I’m-trying-to-look-like-I-just-had-sex or want-to-be-having-sex look…that so doesn’t work either. Or any pictures of anyone in bikinis. bad. Idea.

    Bugles = good idea. Especially with chocolate and peanut butter.

  6. As always you are hilarious and your treats look delish! LOVE the rolo mcflurry! Why are those mcflurry spoons so weird? Hmmm I will put my chin on my fist to think about this, but I definitely won’t photograph myself. 🙂

  7. Denise

    Your boys are just too cute, just adorable!!! Love the Bugle idea, but I’ll have to try it with white chocolate. I’ve seen several comment on not having Bugles in their area, try your local Wal-Mart, because a lot of times, they carry more of the hard to find items. 😉

  8. I just found your site recently…love it! Humor + delicious treats = perfection! Also, your rant about the chin on fist pose made me think of Uncle Rico’s photo shoot on “Napoleon Dynamite”. You have seen that, right? Hysterical!

  9. Alexa

    You’re hilarious! And, I think if I made these, I’d inhale them in no time flat. They look like the perfect mix of salty, crunchy, fatty, creamy, chocolatey and sweet!

  10. Donna

    LOL, I just found a bag of Bugles in the $1 section at Target, and my husband ate them ALL 🙁
    OHHH don’t forget about the puckered lip face OMG I can NOT stand that one, I have had to stop myself from ruining friendships over those pics!

  11. You are TOO funny!!! 🙂 And now I am really, really paranoid about my profile pic. My husband talked me into using it…and really, should husbands be allowed to pick? I’m changing it back to a cookie.

    Bugles are so hard to find here for some reason, but NOW I will be on a mission. These look too good.

  12. TAmara

    Somehow you always seem to cheer me!! I didnt even know bugles still existed and now im going search til I find them, even if it kills me bause I NEED these!! You are my hero 🙂

      1. Dee

        I am in Western Canada and just picked up several bags of bugles at one of our local grocery stores, so check around! They are once again being sold in Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Leslie

    You should join the movement – I see this face more than I’d like, especially with the college ones, and let’s be honest, it does NOT make you more attractive, it makes you look like an animal with webbed feet.

    Salty and sweet? Epic win.

  14. Don’t forget the “duck face.” I am so over that face. It doesn’t make you look cute, it makes you look like you got collagen injections done wrong!

    These look delicious though, and I love Bugles!

  15. Vicki

    How cute and yummy would these be totally dipped in chocolate and possibly placed on top a flat cookie and made to look like witches hats for Halloween?? My daught will love these!

  16. First of all, I must add the duck face. Please let’s get rid of the duck face once and for all. It makes me crazy (ier).

    Second, I clicked over from a link on FB posted by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and thought, “Hmm. Chocolate dipped bugles, that’s interesting. But the peanut butter filling? I think I love you.


  17. Well, I just have to say…next time your chin is feeling debbie…uh, I mean HEAVY…just lay down and take a nap? Because you’re right…chin + fist = weird person.

    Weird person who will probably suck at web hosting, customer service, and just being a nice human being.

    So glad you made it out alive, friend!! xoxo

    This recipe makes me happy and ticked at the same time.
    Bugles, peanut butter and chocolate = happy : )
    Bugles not available in Canada = ticked : (
    Someday though I will get some and try this!!!

    Love the pic of the boys!!

    1. Chris

      Hey just to let you know…all Canadians…listen up Bugles are back in Canada… Check out Walmart this week, November 25, 2011… $2.50 a bag….Hurry to get yours now!!!

  19. those sound fabulous. i guess i’ll have to put my signature pose to rest after reading this post. i just walked around all day and night with my chin resting on my fist cause i thought it made me look like a genius and like 20 lbs thinner all at the same time.
