BlogHer’13 and Some Cannolis

by Jennifer Wieland

As I was getting everything ready to type up this post this morning I had to stop and take my husband and oldest to the train so they could head downtown for work/internship. As we head outside to leave I am leading the pack and immediately step on something (That no doubt was left outside on the sidewalk by one of the little devils angels I live with.) with one foot and have it jam into my big toe on my other foot causing me to trip because yeah, that’s usually how my luck rolls when I have something big planned that day. Come on big toe you need to hang in there for three days. My husband thought it was hilarious! He kept cracking jokes the whole ride about how I should remember not to trip when introducing myself to people this week. Ugh! Men sometimes!

So now that I have painted you a solid visual image of my clumsiness, let’s move on. With today being the kick-off of BlogHer’13 I wanted to get a recipe posted. This is a nice and easy recipe that tastes amazing! I wanted to do a recipe using one of my favorite things again. That’s right Peanut Butter & Co. Peanut Butter is my special guest again in this recipe. Honestly, I just love the flavors they have!

As you have surmised no doubt from the title it is a cannoli recipe and it is all kinds of dark chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness! If you have any filling left over like I did, feel free to use it in any way you wish. I personally used it as lunch. I know, I know, I know… Why didn’t I share, right? I fed them to my mom, dad, sister, someday sister-in-law and daughter. Everyone loved them but my dad. He only gave them an o.k. rating since he is not a fan of dark chocolate. I know what you are thinking. Who doesn’t like dark chocolate? I mean it’s chocolate and it’s good for you.

So today is the first day of BlogHer’13 and I am going to Wilton headquarters for the day and following up with the kick-off parties tonight. So looking forward to meeting all the other fabulous bloggers out there!
