Do we have any peanut butter and chocolate fans in the house? Or should I say, do we have anyone that isn’t? I don’t even know what to say about this recipe – the photo speaks for itself, does it not?

I’ll start by telling you where the recipe came from!

It’s from Shawn Syphus’ new book, Express Lane Cooking! Shawn is a blogging colleague – she writes the fabulous blog I Wash…You Dry. The concept behind this book is just genius. Shawn give you 80 recipes, all with photos, all made with 5 ingredients (plus pantry staples). But here’s the best part – you buy five ingredients from the store and you can make three different recipes with those five ingredients. Such a great way to reduce waste, shrink your grocery bill, and take the stress out of meal planning!

Here’s an example – buy these five ingredients at the store:

  • chicken thighs
  • orange marmalade
  • red bell peppers
  • soy sauce
  • red onion

And then you can make these three recipes out of Shawn’s book:

  1. Broiled Asian Chicken Thighs with Red Pepper Slaw
  2. Orange Chicken Stir-Fry
  3. Hawaiian Chicken Skewers

Isn’t that such a smart concept? She also includes 5 dessert recipes – one of which gives you these rich peanut butter fudge brownies.
