PEACH CRISP- Vegan/Parve

We were just in Kelowna B.C. & picked up a case of peaches are our favourite orchard in West Kelowna. Paynters. We have been getting our fruit there for many years! This year they did not have any of their own peaches but they had so many from other orchards in the Okanagan. Now the what to do with all of them? I gave several away, I made this Peach Crisp & some Peach Muffins. I am slicing the majority of them & freezing them to use in smoothies during the winter!

H ere are some pictures of the peaches. They are so juicy, have to have a napkin in hand to catch the peach juice!

I am going to freeze these peach slices them put them into containers to keep

No-Bake Peanut Butter Squares

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square recipe is from Kraft Canada. I had everything I needed in my pantry so that made this very  easy. It  only took a few minutes to put together. The chilling time was the longest part of this recipe.

I printed out this recipe in 2008 & on the paper I have written in a bright colours sharpie {this is the peanut butter squares everyone likes!) I like to make it for company on any dessert platter & also just to have for a snack! 

The ingredients are easy…nothing special, but when combines!! They are delish! Butter, graham wafer crumbs, icing sugar & peanut butter…then chocolate chips! So good 

This No-Bake Peanut Butter Square takes minutes to make & has to chill a bit to firm up 

Here is the recipe  from Kraft Canada. note: I used chocolate chips instead of baking chocolate that was in the original recipe 


1/2 cup butter

2 cups icing sugar 

1 1/2 cups graham wafer squares

1 cup peanut butter 

12 oz chocolate chips 


Line a 13 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper with some overhang so you can pull the squares up out of the dish to cut

  1. Melt the butter, then add the icing sugar..sift it into the bowl to get rid of any lumps
  2. Add the graham wafer squares & peanut butter. Mix well until completely combined 
  3. Pat this evenly into the prepared 9 x 13 dish
  4. Melt the chocolate & let it cool briefly then spread it over the base
  5. Let this cool & then cut partially into squares.. the recipe recommends cutting this into 40 squares but of course you can cut the squares any size you want
  6. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour
  7. Lift the squares out of the pan & cut all the way through
