Hey Everyone!! I'm Erika. I'm a 28 year old, fashion loving, food blogging, midwestern girl! I grew up on hearty meals and enjoying the simple life of South Dakota. Ever since leaving home I have found a love for baking and cooking. I started this blog for my family and friends so that they can see how food blog recipes REALLY turn out. When I'm not too busy running the fashion world and have time for the blogging world, I will try to update the blog weekly. I am not a professional and probably never will be, so don't expect too much from me. :) I just love to have fun, get messy and make the simple things. ENJOY!

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

Thank the lord and sing his praise!! I have FINALLY found a recipe that looks complicated and took me LESS THEN 20 MINUTES, start to finish!! I have been extremely sick for the past month and have just started feeling good. Of course, once I have a little bit of strength, everyone on my team has a birthday!!

I had little time, needed enough dessert to please everyone and wanted it to look like I cared (which I do!!). This recipe is sooooo easy and it tasted sooooo good!! :) I recommend this recipe for anyone on the go or for those crunch times when you forget about an event the next morning!! Have fun!!

1 roll of chocolate chip cookie dough
3 cups of miniature marshmallows
2 cups of peanut butter filled pretzels
1/2 cup of peanut butter chips
1 tsp of shortening or 1 tsp of canola oil

Step One:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Press cookie dough into the bottom of a pre-greased pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Step Two:
Sprinkle marshmallows on top of baked cookie dough. Bake for another 2-3 minutes.
Step Three:
Push pretzels into gooey marshmallows.
Step Four:
In a small sauce pan, add shortening/canola oil and peanut butter chips into pan. Stir continuously until melted.

Step Five:
Drizzle peanut butter on top of bars. Cool and ENJOY!!
