{recipe} peanut butter and brownie rice crispy treats.

happy tuesday! i am back from a quick weekend trip up north to boston and new hampshire for the weekend. it felt great to have a nice weekend enjoying the cool crisp air and taking in the beautiful lake views of lakes winnipesaukee and squam. there is no doubt that fall is upon us and winter is just around the corner.

but it is great to come home to our puppies and start thinking about projects around the house. this week i am thinking about finally tackling the front door, stocking up on lots of mums and pumpkins and if i am lucky convincing matt to help me paint the master bath.

before we ran off to new england last week i decided to try my hand at a recently pinned recipe from kevin {&} amanda a fantastic food blog. unlike some of the recipes that float around on pinterest this one was amazing, and everything i thought it would be. it is deadly rich, but amazingly tasty. enjoy!
