Movie Mania Monday: Peanut Buttah Cup Pan-clogs

Peanut Buttah Cup Pan-clogs

Today is our final entry for seven days of Movie Mania Menus.  It's also the first Monday of our regular weekly entries for Movie Mania Monday!  Did that make any sense?!

Anyway, today we're taking a peek and a bite into one of my all time favorite romantic comedies, 50 First Dates.  My brother and I have been huge Adam Sandler fans since he was "Zee Stud Boy" on the MTV game show Remote Control in the 1980's.  I've so enjoyed watching and laughing at his success through the years, and I love that his comedy changes as his life changes.  He's truly a comedian for our generation. In 50 First Dates as Henry Roth, he'll do anything he can to get Lucy (Drew Barrymore) to fall in love with him, day after day, even if it means pretending he can't read.  He meets her for the first time at the Huki Lau Cafe, where he also meets some rather friendly locals.

So, you other 50FD fans, I know what you're saying..."make the waffle house", right?!  Well, I looked into it.  Have you seen that waffle house?!  It looks like it took 6 architects and 5 hours to build...that waffle house is amazing!  I like my recipes to be simple, easy, healthy (most of the time) and fun, so we're doing  Peanut Buttah Cup Pan-clogs.  I always ask my family and friends if they want "I put Peanut Buttah Cup in ya'eggs?" when I'm making them breakfast, and in my home, pancakes are NEVER pancakes, they're ALWAYS "pan-coo" or "pan-clogs".  The combination of these two movie lines is perfect.

I'm warning you...these are delicious.  The mini peanut buttah cups will melt inside of the pan-clogs and you'll take a bite and get a gush of gooey, sweet peanut buttah and chocolate rushing through your mouth.  These are definitely a sweet, tasty treat that shouldn't be taken lightly or eaten every day.  Prepare for peanut buttah cup pan-clog bliss!
