Peanut Butter Brownie Bites: make these little bites in a mini-muffin pan, filled with pb morsels, topped with peanut butter frosting and a mini Reese's!

So hey! It’s Shugary Sweets. You’ve come to the right place! As you can see if you’ve been here before, things are a bit different. Thanks to Lindsay at Purr Design we got a little makeover here!

And I’m loving it. What do you think?

There are still some kinks to work out, and I’m working on re-formatting some of my recipes to the new design…but overall, it’s totally functional!

Let’s walk through a few features, shall we?

  1. Recipe List and index: if you see on my top toolbar there is a link for “Recipe List”. Hover over that list and you’ll see a drop down menu of lots of delicious categories. Click on the category you like, and you’ll see I now have a visual index.
  2. Popular Posts: On my left sidebar, you’ll see my popular posts all lined up! These update constantly, in case you’re interested. Although, every time I look the Chicken Tetrazzini and Copycat Panera Mac and Cheese are always at the top. Those two posts just keep going crazy on pinterest.
  3. Hi there! yep, there I am in a picture. In case you were wondering what I look like. Granted, that picture is a couple years old. I’m definitely older looking now!
  4. Savor the Sweet Life! Yeah, that’s my new tagline thanks to Lindsay. She asked me if I had one and to describe my blog. I pretty much said this: “So I love cooking dinner. And, like, savory food, but I also love desserts. Every meal needs to end with, like, something sweet. But on the blog, I probably have 75% sweet and 25% savory. So I don’t know.” She probably thinks I’m not a grown up, cause I talk like a valley girl in my emails. But to my defense I have three daughters….and we lived in the Ohio valley for awhile (that’s what Valley girl means, right??). Back to Lindsay, she took my endless rambling and created a 4 word tagline that describes me and my life and my blog. I heart her for that!

Things to come:

  1. I’m working on a new “about me” page. It’s been in the works for about two years. So stay tuned. It may go live before I retire!! And when it does? It will be awesome.
  2. “More” tab. This will have a drop down that you can quickly and easily find my round up posts (in case you have a hankering for 100 no bake dessert recipes or 75 chicken dinner ideas)…you’ll also find my monthly Top Ten posts, giveaways, and a new category: FAQ. This one has also been in the works for about 3 years…so it should totally be relevant, right?
  3. Less ads on the desktop. In an effort to keep my site fast and running efficiently, I’m going to reduce the number of ads on my desktop. If all goes well (read: income doesn’t drop dramatically), it will stay that way. Hopefully by the end of the month, it will look how it’s supposed to!

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites: make these little bites in a mini-muffin pan, filled with pb morsels, topped with peanut butter frosting and a mini Reese's!

In the meantime, let’s eat and celebrate with some Peanut Butter Brownie Bites! These delicious, bite sized brownies are loaded with Reese’s peanut butter morsels. Then topped with a creamy peanut butter frosting and a mini Reese’s. Tell me it’s not too much?!

I used a mini muffin pan to bake these in, but a silicone brownie pan would have been awesome too!

Please, poke around my site a little. If you see something acting wonky, let me know! Thanks!!

    Love the do-over that is your blog. I ESPECIALLY love that you will (try) keep the ads to a minimum. I have given up MANY blogs because of all the in-your-face advertising. I realize people want to make a little money, but if you want the traffic, you have to give the people what they want as well, which mean no/minimal ads.
    As for today’s recipe… YUM!!! Anything peanut butter is a hit with me and the fact that it also includes peanut butter frosting!?! I’m in heaven! Thanks!

    Hi Aimee – I made these today as the weather is awful outside and I have been craving these since I saw the post.  I have to tell you, these turned out to be a delicious disaster!  I couldn’t get a single one of them to come out of the muffin pan in one piece, so, they were still warm enough that I crushed and pressed them all into a 7×11 glass pan and let them cool and then made the frosting and topped it off with about 15 small Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups all chopped up and sprinkled around on the top.  They came out very good and satisfied the craving. That peanut butter frosting is REALLY good! Thanks for aiding and abetting!

  30. Peanut butter and chocolate together? These are just wow! And you’re brownies are just deliciously amazing! And by the way, I like your blog design.
