Sweet Cards and Decadent Desserts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sweet Cards and Decadent Desserts Blog Hop! You should have just come from Dena  The complete blog hop lineup is at the bottom of this post.

Each blogger participating in this hop is featuring a Valentine's Day card for someone special in their life, whether it be a husband, boyfriend, child, friend, teacher, parent, etc ... Each participant is also posting a recipe for a decadent dessert that you might want to make for someone sweet in your life!

This is a two-day blog hop with some participants posting projects on both days. So, please be sure to stop by tomorrow also!

My project for today is a Valentine Card made out of K and Company Paper and Embellishments.

My recipe today came from Pinterest and is courtesy of "The Girl Who Ate Everything."

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars
by Greta White

1 (18.25) package plain yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 eggs
1 (12 oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup coconut ( sister did not like the texture of it in there)

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2) Combine cake mix, melted butter, peanut butter, and eggs in a large bowl using a mixer or spoon. Press this into a 9X13 pan reserving 1 1/2 cup of the mixture to crumble on top.

3) In a small pot, melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and coconut.
4) Spread chocolate mixture over the mixture pressed in the pan and then crumble the 1 1/2 cups of reserved cake mixture on top evenly.
5) Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. If you try my recipe, I'd love to hear how it turned out!  Please hop on over to Janet's blog next to see what she has to share with you!

Hi Anita, Love how you used the ribbon to sperate the hearts from each other. Very Pretty card. Your dessert sounds good. My hubby would like it because of the peanut butter. I like the sound of the coconut; but not the peanut butter. TFS!
