your hips will never forgive you...

I must admit we like our snack foods and we like them sweet so I am forever searching for recipes for our snacks. This is one that I came up with one day while experimenting in the kitchen. This is not a healthy snack in any way and if you are peanut or milk intolerant it is not for you. But, if you are looking for a very easy, quick, sweet snack that your hips will never forgive you for eating, this might just work.

bottom layer

The bottom layer I make in the pan that I am using rather than dirty a separate bowl. I use a 9x13 size cake pan and throw in

one envelope powdered milk
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups quick cook oatmeal
a half cup of honey (or other suitable replacement)

Honey can be replaced with caro syrup, simple sugar syrup, dandelion honey etc. Mix ingredients well, if too sticky add a bit more oats and if too dry add bit more honey. Once mixed squish down to form an even crust.

Top layer
1 pound powdered sugar or 4 cups
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons margarine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

This layer can be made in a microwave or on the stove top. Throw all ingredients minus the vanilla into pan or bowl and heat 3-5 minutes or until they can be mixed well together. Add the vanilla, stir and then pour evenly over the bottom layer. Refrigerate until cool and serve.

I have thought about adding an additional thick gooey caramel in the middle of the two layers as well as adding nuts or coconut into the fudge topping but haven't as yet. Each time I think about it I am reminded that this is sinful enough without added ingredients.


  1. I can feel it pasting itself onto my hips and backside as I read it! yUM!

  2. Oh that sounds so yummy, I'd probably have to work extra hard in the garden!

  3. I'll be you didn't even feel the Devil on your shoulder, did you? OMG! This is so wrong -- and, yet, absolutely perfect. Thanks for sharing a great inspiration. (I'm assuming my share will arrive in tomorrow's mail?)
