A few days ago Sweet Treats turned 3!!! (Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Sweet Treats, Happy Birthday to you.) So I thought it would be a cool idea to run a poll here and on our facebook page to see which one of our favourite recipes we should revisit for the occasion. Surprise, surprise - peanut butter balls won! (Chocolate and peanut butter - always a favourite!)
But just revisiting a recipe wasn't exciting enough. I thought it would be really fun to put a new spin on an old favourite. So what can you do to a peanut butter ball, I wondered... Add BACON of course!!!
In theory - great idea. In reality - kind of a fail.
I made the peanut butter ball filling as per usual and then added 6 strips of crumbled bacon. I thought for sure the bacon flavour would add that nice smoky, salty layer to the peanut butter... Um, no! The bacon got totally lost in the peanut butter and all I was left with were peanut butter balls with added calories :(
Even though the recipe didn't work out the way I had hoped, I am still very happy that Sweet Treats has been around for three whole years and look forward to future blog birthdays. And I am very thankful for all the readers across the world who take the time to stop by Sweet Treats every now and again. Keep it coming - I will have new treats soon, I promise... Strawberry rhubarb jam anyone??? Stay tuned!
Speaking of birthdays, I have one coming up very soon and can't decide what kind of sweet treat to celebrate with. Suggestions?
