Mmmm….there’s really not much you can say about these that doesn’t already go without saying.
Haha…chocolate & peanut butter. My ever favorite combination.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but in recent posts I’ve been taking some up close shots. I’ve been dying for a macro lens…but, for the time being (gotta save up!), we (my husband and I) bought these. They are close-up macro filter set (+1, +2, +4, +10). And they work pretty well considering we only paid $11 for them…compared to the $1000 Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro Lens that we’re saving up for.
You can buy all of the photography equipment that I have in my amazon store. 🙂
Anyway…back to the chocolate & peanut butter deliciousness!!!
These scrumptious miniature little tarts are made with a gluten free chocolate cookie crust, tofu peanut butter mousse, and dark chocolate ganache.
Oh. My. Gah.

This looks divine!
Another chocolate/peanut butter dessert… LOVE! Your shots look great!
For only $10, I just bought those lenses. If my photos turn out half as well as yours it will be money well spent.
Wow, those look gorgeous! And delicious! PB and chocolate is one of my favorite combos. Beautiful photos, friend!!
I tried the chocolate peanut butter mousse cups…and loved them! The mousse was sooo good, but the dark chocolate cups were a bit spendy! I’m excited for another recipe option to use the yummy mousse in!
Well, clearly we know I love tofu and sweet combined 😉 And peanut butter, duh, no brainer! I’d gobble these little babies right up. I need to find a $10 lense like that for my Nikon.
These look soo good!! Love chocolate and peanut butter combos!
These. Look. Insane. I may have to find a way to make a low carb version. Choc and PB is my favourite combo too!
Oh Caroline I think we have a lot in common! My husband and I are total peanut butter and chocolate fiends. My most recent success was the ultimate Peanut Butter Cups which we are total suckers for. Will definitely try these bad boys sometime – thanks for posting the recipe! I happen to have the exact tins aswell (albeit much much older), picked them up from a vintage market in Sydney – nice to have a recipe to use them for 🙂 I’m just embarking on partaking in the blog world, having been an avid reader for years. Your blog has inspired me a lot – thanks, and I look forward to reading more of your posts.
WOW these look amazing
May I ask where did you get that fork from?

Aww, thank you Zoe! I got the fork at Cost Plus World Market! 😀
