Yep, that’s really all there is to say about this:
Crazy Food’s 34 Simple Two Ingredient Recipes
I’m kind of in love with the fact that they all have pictures, too. Is that weird? Probably.
Most of them are desserts and some aren’t quite as exciting as I would hope for, but what can you expect when there are only 2 ingredients involved?
I’m really curious how some of these end up tasting, too. Like the pizza dough one…. is it really going to taste like pizza dough or is it going to be only sort of like pizza dough but really gross instead? The white thin mints one is really curious, too.
I actually spotted this outside of Canada while in an American airport. It was in the duty-free international part, though, so still for the Canadians and Brits.
If the image is too small, the front says “weekly pack” and each mini jar of Nutella is labeled with the day of the week. I do enjoy the chocolate hazelnut spread, especially for sneaking into desserts for an extra kick of flavor…but I’m pretty sure a daily dose would be too much even for me, hehe.

You really can’t go wrong with combining peanut butter and chocolate
. Well, I guess you kind of can if you’re the type of person who hates chocolate (shame on you!) or you have a fatal peanut allergy….
But outside of that, chocolate and peanut butter just work. This weird brownie cookie, peanut butter stuffed creation was no exception to the rule either.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a recipe for these, though.
(This one looks like a buckeye!)
They were inspired by some long-forgotten chocolate cookie I found online, but during a heated moment of peanut butter craving, I tried stuffing them with a peanut butter and powdered sugar filling.
I quickly realized that trying to create a pocket in the somewhat-dry cookie dough and then filling it with peanut butter was rather tedious….not to mention kind of messy and ugly.
And because I wanted cookies *now*, I moved to creating a base and “top” out of cookie dough and dropping dollops of peanut butter in the middle instead.
The result wasn’t really any prettier, but it did seem a lot faster and easier.
And the result was tasty regardless. They look drier in the pictures than they really were. The oil from the peanut butter soaked into the surrounding chocolatey goodness, leaving an almost brownie-like coating around the peanut butter center, but with crunchy edges.
They were the perfect blend of brownie/cookie with ooey gooey peanut butter in the middle. If you’re the type who likes the chewy edges on brownies
, but a soft middle, these are wondermous. It’s a shame I didn’t record the ingredients I used at the time, but oh well.
