Having a little trouble sleeping?


That happens to me occasionally  And, I have found the solution.  

So, you've come to the right place.

This is what I do when I'm a little restless...tossing and turning, knowing I need to sleep well to be fresh as a daisy to face tomorrow.

In fact, it happened to me last night, and I pulled out my trusty, time-proven solution.

And, it worked.  Again.

You only need 3 things.

Chocolate syrup, ice cream, and peanut butter!

Yep!  Now, any brand of these items will do.  I prefer Hershey's syrup, The Kroger brand peanut butter, and The Kroger brand "Cookies & Cream" ice cream...but it's really up to you.  It'll work, regardless.

Begin by taking a heaping spoonful of peanut butter, and depositing it in a coffee mug.

Add a generous amount of chocolate syrup.

Pop the peanut butter and chocolate syrup in the microwave oven for 40 seconds (don't scorch it...just heat it up and melt the peanut butter real good).

While your pb/chocsyr is heating, load you up a huge cereal bowl full of The Kroger Cookies & Cream ice cream.

About like this.

Once the microwave cuts off, stir up the peanut butter and chocolate syrup real good (mixing throughly), and pour/spoon it out on your ice cream.

Eat the whole dang thing (like I do), and trust me, you will sleep like a baby.  And, I don't mean a baby with colic, or an ear infection.  I mean, a good baby that sleeps all night!

This has been a message in the public interest.  Don't bother to thank me.


  1. Looks good, but with that much sugar, I'd be able to out run rabbits and howl at the moon, ALL night long!

  2. My solution works, too: three fingers o' single malt. Repeat as necessary, but two doses is adequate for nearly anyone... and better on the waist line, too.

  3. I'm thinking I would weigh about 3-400 pounds if I did that every night...But it looks good.

  4. My Dad's recipe was cutting up bread, putting it in a cereal bowl, and pouring milk over it. I'm pretty sure sugar was on top. I never tried it. He did it practically every night.

  5. Love it - if my wife would let me indulge like that.

  6. My grandfather used to crumble cornbread into a glass of buttermilk. I like your version better, but it'd kill me -- after turning me into a short blimp with arms and legs.

  7. I think you're confusing "sleep" with "diabetic coma" Andy.


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
