Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

A few years back I was part of a co-ed softball team. So I never actually held a bat or caught a ball, but I did cheer on the team and make fresh baked goods for every game!

And lets be real, having a cheering section and fresh baked goods is an essential part of an adult co-ed softball league so you might just say I held the more important role on the team! 😉

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

These bars were the absolute favorite of everything I made for them!  They were requested on the regular by the team!

I hadn’t thought about them, much less made them, in years. After making these Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake Bars last week, they came into my mind and I knew I had to whip some up!

This time around I used gluten free flour to make these babies gluten-free!  They were just as scrumptious as I remembered with no gluten in site!

Nutella Cheesecake Bites

Nutella cheesecake bites are a delicious no bake treat that’s easy to make in only 10 minutes and sure to be loved by everyone!

Nutella Cheesecake Bites

The inspiration for this dessert came last week while studying for finals. I was rummaging through my cabinets looking for a sweet snack and stumbled upon the vanilla wafers I had purchased to dip in my Birthday Cake Hummus.

Then I spied that little jar of hazelnut goodness sitting on the shelf above. My vanilla wafers all the sudden started screaming, “dip me in hazelnut goodness, dip me in hazelnut goodness”, and since talking cookies freak me out, I obeyed.

Pretty much the greatest combination ever.

Now I thought, I could just spread some Nutella on vanilla wafers and serve them at my Christmas Cocktail Party, but that just wasn’t quite inventive enough for the blog, so I whipped some cream cheese into the Nutella and replaced a graham cracker crust with vanilla wafers to make mini Nutella cheesecake bites!

Mini Nutella Cheesecakes

As I prepared these little bite-sized desserts for my party, I had to make a separate plate for my roommate and I to snack on so that we didn’t eat all of the bites reserved for the guests before the party!

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

When planning the Italian menu for my Little Italy Housewarming Party I knew I wanted some sort of cookie in the mix.

Cookies are an easy dessert for a cocktail party as you can make the dough ahead of time, throw it in the fridge and then bake the cookies just before guests arrive for a fresh, warm dessert that people can grab and go!

Cupcakes you have to frost, pies you have to slice, ice cream melts, but cookies are easy and something that everyone loves!

This is my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Many people claim to have “the perfect” chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I think it’s all a matter of taste.

I like mine soft and chewy with lots of chocolate chips. After years of hard, scientific research involving very long days and tough tasting sessions, I have come up with my perfect” chocolate chip cookie!
