Vegan MoFo brings Surprising Scones!

Who wants a scone?

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones

Ha! Don't judge a scone by its cover! These are not boring scones - they have chocolate in the middle! Oh, NOW you want one!

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones
Yeah, baby!

These Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Scones come to us via C'est La Vegan. Kim veganized the recipe from a non-vegan cookbook, and even though they were delicious, she said they needed a little som'n som'n more. So following Kim's advice to add a little extra this or a little more of that, I doubled the Earth Balance and the chocolate. Yeah! When in doubt - always double the chocolate. That's my motto. I didn't have a bar of semisweet baking chocolate, so I used chippers instead. Thanks for sharing, Kim!

Time for another Netflix find! Are you sick of vampires yet? They have taken over the world! It took me quite a few episodes to get into The Vampire Diaries, which is not very unusual for me. This show was a little too highschooly and homecomingy at first, but it did get better. My favorite characters are Damon and Caroline, but not first-season Caroline. (If you watch, you know what I'm talking about, and if you start watching now you'll see what I mean!) About 98% of what comes out of Damon's mouth is sarcasm, and I'm a big fan of sarcasm. Nina Dobrev, who plays Elena, is lovely and she's rescued a few kittens, I think! Irrelevant, but sweet!

    1. I hope you love them too! If you try the Vampire Diaries, remember that it might suck for you at first (suck pun totally intended) like it did for me - don't give up on it too soon! :)

    I love TVD. Damon is hot. It took me at least 12 Eps to get into it though. my friend told me to persevere and glad I did now.

    1. Yep, 12 episodes is about right. It was hard to persevere through the Vicki episodes, but it was worth it in the end!

    1. Me too! It's hard not to eat them all as soon as they come out of the oven. Room temperature scones are good, but hot scones are just dangerous! I think Conductor Curly and Stevie Wonder should team up and make some music! :D

  7. Mmm, choc-filled scones!

    And I didn't know you liked TVD - it's one of my fave shows but I am a Stefan fan all the way! Also, I love Caroline in the last season too, she's awesome now!

    And I love Curly with his wings all stretched out!

    So happy to have seen your site!
