After graduating I went from poor college student, to the even less glamorous position of unprepared adult. The adulthood where you have to think about paying your own rent and cell phone bills. And that sh#t ain’t cheap. My active efforts to “reel it in” spending-wise, have been counter acted by the time vex left by outside school work. Without homework I now have so much additional time to happy hour. Also known as the most expensive pass time.
The point of this all, is that I have had very little money for ingredients. When I bake it has mostly consisted of raiding my fridge for anything that goes well together, which is the case with these peanut butter bars. These bars also represent my tendency to go overboard. I kept adding layer upon layer, when stumbling on new items in my pantry. In the end they consisted of four layers: caramel brownies, peanut butter mousse, peanut butter cookie dough and peanut butter chocolate ganache. Needless to say a recipe was not used or recorded. In the future, I am hoping I learn to control my urge for five o clock half priced drinks, so that money can be put towards ingredient purchasing, and time can be put into recipe writing. Wish me luck.
