This week has had it’s ups and downs. Let’s focus on the ups though! Like the fact that I glittered every single finger nail and it turns out that this particular polish is better than any top coat ever! I painted them on Sunday and there’s no chip in sight! Last weekend, I totally picked up my girl Cindy’s couch to replace my super sad and ripped (but super-cute mid-century) couch. Turns out I forgot what it was like to have a comfy lounge-area! Life-changing!

Today I walked into work and was handed a venti chai with my name on it. I’m getting super drink-full, but I’m pushing through it. And lately after dinner I’ve been craving chocolate, and I’ve got a freezer full of homemade crunch bars. I keep getting crumbs on my new couch (oops). But these bars are just what I’ve been needing! I’ve been snacking on them after pizza and in between sweeping and cleaning my feelings. After lunch and before shoveling a pup-path in the back yard. On my way to work and right before bed. Real quick before doing dishes, and casually while watching Netflix.

So do yourself a favor and make these crunch bars for your daily chocolate needs. They help! I promise it!

  1. Sounds like you had a decent week. Hope you’ve survived the polar vortex. We’ve climbed up to 0 here in Minnesota! These look awesome and I have all the ingredients (yay!) so gonna work on them tonight!

  2. These probably taste so much better than the raw chocolate fig bar thing I made in an effort to be less indulgent but let’s be real, ain’t nothing like real sultry chocolate. And the crunchies! Need one, stat!

  4. Dang it! I tried to wait 2 more weeks until after I deliver this baby to make these, but I lost that battle big time. Oh well, at least the scolding from my doctor will be worth it. Oh, and the Loui’s Pizza post from date night in 2011…how have I lived in Metro Detroi y entire life and not known about that place. I informed my dad today of the an “emergency”. That I need to eat there immediately.

  5. I made these over the weekend. I used an organic cocoa brown rice version of rice krispies. Pretty darn boss.

    Tip for anyone who makes these: Use a sharp knife to cut them. Otherwise you will end up with a crumbly cut.

  6. Can I replace the peanut butter with something (or leave it out)? My 14 y.o. daughter has a severe peanut & nut allergy so she wouldn’t be able to have them. She & I love to share sweet treats together. Any suggestions? Thanks, Tracey
