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

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

  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.

Notes:

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?

    Apparently, most of the younger generations today love posing like that which I really don’t why too. And regarding bugles, nice pictures… now I’m hungry just watching them. Thanks for the recipe, would like to make one. =)

  2. Have you considered making ice cream cone bugle snacks? Because the shape seems perfect! Get some round candies (maybe Sixlets, though they might be too small, or malted milk balls which might be too big… that sort of thing, though…), dip the top of the bugle into melted chocolate like a chocolate-dipped waffle cone, then stick on the round candy for the ice cream scoop! Or, you could mix up something like the peanut butter for these and pipe it onto the top, then dip ’em on the melted chocolate for a dipped cone! You could even add sprinkles!

  3. PS – The Facebook Profile Photo Pose that I hate the most is the I-Think-I’m-Sexy pose, which has been perpetuated by frighteningly mature 13-year-old girls. The camera/phone must be self-held, as this pose is far too embarrassing to do in front of anyone else, even a close girlfriend. The camera must be held at a very high angle (not as high as Statue of Liberty’s torch, but nearly there). Face must be turned only SLIGHTLY upward, so that the eyes must do most of the work to meet the camera’s gaze. Mouth open, naughty smile. Snap.

  4. Dear Cookies,

    (Or should I call you Mrs. Cups?)

    This is a stroke of snacking genius. You and I are sharing a wavelength, actually. I’ve been trying to figure out how to get Bugles into a brownie recipe. I will keep trying, knowing that you have definitely succeeded in transforming that little conical crunch into something much greater than the sum of its parts.

    1. OMG!! Get a tiny melon baller, bake your brownies then use the baller to scoop out little Bugles-sized balls. Then, secure the brownie ball onto the Bugle with some melted chocolate. Tadaaa… brownie-Bugle ice cream cones!

      You should send me a batch, they sound delicious!! =P

  5. Hahahahaha! I’m not a fan of that pose either. It’s very fakey.

    Love these cutie little treats though! They look like tiny ice cream cones. I haven’t had Bugles in years and year…what better reason to have some than this?1 🙂

  6. Bake@350 had posted that you were out of power due to Irene….I’m a hurricane Katrina victim myself and I just want you to know that you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. (((HUGS)))

  7. I haven’t had Bugles in probably 15 years. I always loved putting them on my fingers 🙂

    Thatpicture of the freshly dipped Bugles in chocolate looks amazing. Come to me melted chocolate!

  8. Me and Ashley have more than just our names in common. I too was going to say I hate that duck face crap that everyone is doing. I also hate the generic sunglasses/smoochie lips/throwing the peace sign while sitting in the driver’s seat taken with a cell phone photo that fills the albums of facebook. One thing I do not hate, is this yummy idea…I may bless my husband’s carepackage with this yummy snack next 🙂

    OMG your kids are darling! I have boys, too, and I just love it when they try to look cool, or suspicious, or devilish… they just crack me up.
    As for the treats, Y-U-M! Can’t wait to try these, and I’m definitely with Vicki @ 4:56: Seeing these makes me want to make witch-hat treats!

  10. Before you came along, I never gave Bugles much thought. Now, I actually have some in my pantry just waiting to turn into something yummy! Love the photo of your boys:)

  11. The first part of this post totally made me laugh. I hadnt really ever put that much thought into chin/fist poses but as I read through your thoughts I was like .. Yeah I totally agree with that!! Your little boys are too stinkin cute and those Bugles look sooo tasty!

  12. I feel so sad inside for all of that have been dealing with THAT ISSUE. I’m so glad you’re back. And I’m so excited to make this. Especially since, randomly, in Korea they sell Bugles!! But, they don’t really call them that. They call them something else that I can’t really say. But that’s not important. The important thing is that you are here sharing these delicious recipes that I am going to wish I had never seen when I gain a jillion pounds at 2 in the morning.

  13. Oh wow…a yummy and funny blog post!!! I love that combination of yum and fun. That treat looks absolutely delish and easy that I hope to try this this upcoming weekend! I don’t know if you addressed this, but I am sooo dumb when it comes to cooking sometimes. How and at what temp do you melt the Dove chocolate. I have always been afraid to melt regular milk chocolate candy…I am afraid I will burn it. I always use that waxy yet still delish almond bark chocolate and slowly melt it down in the microwave a minute at a time. If you could please let me know about the melting Dove, I would be so grateful. Dove is my fave, as well. Thanks!!!!

    Also, I had to comment on annoying poses..The FB pose that annoys me the most is the one where people are taking a photo of themselves while posing in the mirror…or those shirtless guys flexing in front of the mirror…as though taking a picture of themselves looking at themselves in the mirror is supposed to impress us!

    1. shelly

      Hi Angie..I included in the recipe how I melted the chocolates….I just put them in a microwave safe bowl on 50% power for 1 minute. I stirred them and then repeated the process in 15 second increments until they were melted. Hope this helps!

  14. first, am SO HAPPY YOU’RE BAACCKKKKKK!!!! second, i have taken more hand/chin pics than i care to admit and third i am a bugle-holic to the point that i only allow myself to buy them on vacation and just so we’re clear . . . said bugles would never make it getting filled as i’d probably just squeeze that peanut butter stuff straight from the bag into my mouth . . . there’s no tellin’ what i’d do about the whole chocolate issue . . . sigh . . . i need rehab . . . where’s Dr. Drew?
