This week's recipes are high in fat, sugar and all things bad for your body but heavenly for your taste buds.
Some days I feel like exercising restraint on my diet by feeding it with healthy foods, other times I feel like abusing it with cookies, cakes and chips.
Today feels like the latter.
Nat and I had a Gossip Girl marathon and proceeded to consume chocolates, popcorn, chocolate caramel biscuits, Tim Tams, carrot cake, chocolate fudge Pop Tarts and chips. In addition to this, I've had white chocolate Kinder Bueno, Lindt dark chili chocolate, Lindt dark roasted almond chocolate and chocolate buttercream cake in the past 2 days.
I still feel like doing my digestive system some more damage. These recipes would be a good start.
Pretzel Cookies with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chips
From Sugar Cooking
Oh peanut butter chips, why won't you come to New Zealand?! I long for you so. Nat and I were having a debate over whether sweet and salty was a good combination. She said no, I said yes.
Mini Turtle Brownie Bites
From The Other Side of 50
Another topic Nat and I debated about over episodes of Gossip Girl was caramel. Turns out Nat doesn't like caramel. I've only recently began to form a liking for it. Either way, chocolate brownies with caramel sauce sounds damn good.
Snickers Caramel Cheesecake Cookies
From Picky Palate
The words in this recipe sound good on their own but better when strung together in a sentence.
Peanut Butter Honey Brownies
From Spoonful of Sugar
You can't have junk food without peanut butter of some kind. In this recipe it's in the form of brownies with a honey filled centre. I like to think the healthiness of the honey offsets the calorific nature of everything else in the brownies.
From How to Eat a Cupcake
Funny how this is the only recipe of the ones listed that I'm actually excited to make. The reason being is that I can finally make doughnuts without using a fryer! I've come to believe that baking is a healthier method than frying, so these baked doughnuts sit on top of my list of things to bake in the near future.
I feel like I've gained ten pounds just blogging about junk food. I've got to feed the fat kid inside of me!
