Chubby Hubby Cookies

I was inspired to make these cookies from a famous ice cream from Vermont with the same name. The ice cream has vanilla malt ice cream with peanut butter and fudge covered pretzels with a fudge and peanut butter swirl, yum.
I've seen other recipes on the internet of recipes for truffles or bars with the name of the ice cream and would have either peanut butter or caramel but never had the malt in it.

Malt is used for beer in the brewing process. It is usually made from barley. It is a sweet and creamy flavor, you might know it from a candy called Whoppers, chocolate covered malted milk balls.
This is malted vanilla cookie with peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips, crushed pretzels with a peanut butter and chocolate drizzle.

The longer you chill the cookie dough the better and keep the cookie dough cold before baking.
Room temperature butter and eggs will mix better. For room temperature eggs, take out of the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes before using.
2 1/2 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour
1 cup (2 sticks) Unsalted Butter, softened
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 cup Pretzels, crushed (see picture below)
1 cup Peanut Butter Chips
2 1/2 cups Milk Chocolate Chips, can use semi-sweet or dark chocolate
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract, I used homemade 
1 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
4 Tablespoon Malted Milk Powder, can use less if you do not want a intense malt flavor

Peanut Butter Drizzle,optional
2 teaspoons Coconut Oil
1 cup Peanut Butter
2/3 cup Peanut Butter Chips, whatever is leftover

Chocolate Drizzle, optional
1 to 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
1 cup to 1 1/2 cups Milk Chocolate Chips, can use semi-sweet

Crush pretzels in a bag. Do not crush into a fine crumbs, just until broken up.
With a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together softened butter, sugar, brown sugar and malted milk powder until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Add baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla extract. Mix. Then sift in a cup of flour mix then 1 egg. Repeat again. Add chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, pretzels and the last 1/2 cup flour. Fold in butter sugar mix.
Chill dough in refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line two to three cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon, scoop out about 3 tablespoons of dough.
Bump down the temperature to 325 degrees then bake for 11 minutes, rotating half way.
Let the cookies cool on a wired rack on the pan for 10 to 15 minutes then gingerly slide the cookies off with the parchment paper let the cookies cool completely.
Microwave peanut butter chips, peanut butter and coconut for 1 to 2 minutes in 30 second intervals. Let it cool for a 1 to 2 before drizzling over cookies. Microwave chocolate chip with coconut oil for 2 to 3 minutes in 30 second intervals.
Remove cookies from parchment paper and place the cookies on the wired rack. Place parchment paper underneath the racks then drizzle peanut butter over the cookies then the chocolate.
Place cookies in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until peanut butter and chocolate are set.
Store in a cool place.

Doughnut Muffins

I for-one love doughnuts but they don't love me. Where I live we really don't have an amazing doughnut shop that's within a 20 mile radius and don't run out before I wake up (I normally wake up when a lot of doughnut shops close).
I've seen doughnut muffins around the internet and on my favorite cooking shows but I could never find them around so as usual I had to make them. Last month I went onto Amazon to do a little shopping for some cooking supplies like a new muffin pan and some other fun stuff. So I got a new muffin or cupcake pan that said it was King Size. When I saw the pan I didn't think it was going to be that big but when I received I was pleasantly surprised. (Click on the link below)
Wilton 6-Cup King Size Muffin Pan To me it didn't look that big until I received it. They do not joke around when they say its KING size. Its about twice the size of a regular muffin pan.

Slow Cooker Louisiana White Beans and Rice

I grew up eating this dish since I was born and raised in Louisiana. Typically you might hear of red beans and rice with Andouille sausage, which is traditionally eaten on Mondays using soaked red kidney beans, cooked with a ham hake, Creole seasonings, bay leafs, and sausage added in or topped servings over cooked rice. 
White beans are also called Great Northern Beans, not to be confused with  Navy Beans, they are bigger but smaller than Cannellini beans or White Kidney Beans.
Together its a complete protein, relatively cheap maybe $10 for a whole pot of beans, rice and sausage and can be GLUTEN-FREE. Also can last for multiple meals.
Please note I used a 7 quart Slow Cooker, so the cooking times might be different for each slow cooker.

Serving: 2 to 3 Meals

White Beans Soak
2 pound package Dried Great Northern Beans
6 Bay Leaves
1 Tablespoon Sea Salt
5 to 6 Cups water

Go through the beans and take out any ones that look bad.
Line slower cooker with liners, add white beans…
