Crockpot Sweet and Spicy Chicken Tacos
Lets take a trip down memory lane.
So you guys know the movie The Parent Trap, right? The 1998 one with cute little Lindsey Lohan. You know when she was still cute and innocent, before Hollywood reeled her in.
Well for some reason when I was hiking on Sunday morning I thought of this movie. Honestly, I have no idea why this movie popped into my thoughts, but it did. Maybe it was the seriously frigid temps we have been experiencing in the early mornings (hello -18, you kind of stink!) or my sleep deprivation kicking in, or maybe a combination of the two. Who knows!
What ever the reason I’m sure glad it did.
My whole hike I had been racking my brain, trying to come up with different recipes to share with you guys. See, sometimes I have a whole list of things that I want to make for the blog and I am set for weeks. Other times I just don’t have a clue! Like my brain just kind of fizzles out.
It can be rather frustrating!
This is when The Parent Trap popped into me head and the light bulb went off!
Remember the scene when the girls (Hallie and Annie) are sitting in their cabin and break out the Oreos…….. and then break out the peanut butter……and then proceed to dip the Oreos in the peanut butter? Genius? Absolutely!
Come one admit it, you totally did this when you were younger (lets not lie, you still do).
So, first you whip up some homemade Oreos, which alone are just pretty amazing. Then comes the peanut butter. Now technically these are not dipped in peanut butter they are sandwiched with peanut butter, but I just like “dipped” in the name. It was my original idea, but sandwiching was just more practical.
Once Asher got her hands on one I asked her if they tasted like Oreos. Her answer, “They’re better than Oreos.”

Yes, please?! Thank you for sharing at All My Bloggy Friends last week. I look forward to seeing what you share this week 🙂
These look so good! You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter! 🙂
Oh YUM! Those look so delicious! I am on a special diet right now for my breastfeeding baby but I might just have to spoil my neighbors this week and pretend I am eating them! 🙂
What a fantastic and delicious idea!
Thank you! They were a huge hit! Everyone over here went crazy for them!
my husband would LOVE LOVE LOVE these!
Thanks for sharing them at Mandatory Mooch – it’s where I found you!
I was astonished these were sooo easy to make! The only problem is that now I don’t want to share, lol. I’m taking them to dinner with friends tonight, so hopefully they will keep me from polishing them all off.
These look amazing! My hubby would love them!! I am hosting a new Pinterest Power party and would love for you to link up this and any other projects that you have!!
PB oreos are one of my favorite! I would LOVE for you to share this recipe at my link party. And I’m totally pinning this! YUMMM http://www.addhousewife.com/2013/01/its-pininspiration-2013.html
I wholeheartedly agree with the better than Oreos comment. I eat pb from a spoon or with any form of chocolate that I have available. Love these!! And I actually really like that movie, too, I think I’ve seen it about a thousand times~! Thanks for linking at my party!
This looks GREAT! Pinned!
Thanks for pinning!
How funny! Just today, my children were eating Oreo cookies and one of them asked me how they make them. I just might have to make these homemade versions with them so they will know how!
