Hey you guyeeeees!
So this week…
We’re going there. And there. Annnnd there.
It’s officially Ben and Jerry’s themed week!
And this week we’re going B&J.
We got this idea a while back after we both made Ben and Jerry’s treats in the same week without planning it (Late Night Snack Cookies and Chunky Monkey Brownies). That happens sometimes when you share a brain with someone.
Each day Kristan and I are going to be joined by one (or two) of these girls to bring you a dessert dedicated to one of our favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavors. Which I am going to say was basically impossible to narrow down. I mean…
So in the word’s of my Grandpa, “Let’s get this show on the road”.
I’m starting the week off with “What a Cluster”. Don’t you just love the titles of their ice creams?
It’s a peanut butter ice cream with crunchy caramel clusters, and swirled with marshmallow and peanut butter. This one was a total no brainer for me. Hello peanut butter.
So what I decided on was What A Cluster Bars….
What we have here is a peanut butter blondie base, filled with a layer of Marshmallow Fluff, topped with caramel krispies.
Yeah, they’re as good as they sound.
Start by making your peanut butter blondie…
I threw in some peanut butter chips for good measure.
Just press it into your 9×9 and bake until the edges start to get golden.
Let those cool completely and then spread a nice layer of Marshmallow Fluff all over the top…
Next up make your krispie layer and add a little caramel.
Dump that on top of the Fluff layer
And press it down evenly…
All the flavors of the yummy ice cream in one easy bar 🙂
Now for the fun part!
Hop on over and see what Kristan did with Cherry Garcia (I hear there’s cake involved)
And check out Peabody’s Phish Food invention! (I hear there’s PIE involved) My kids are gonna be all over that!
