this sunday is packed with fun.
sunday funday. seahawks sunday. wear comfy navy and lime green clothes. anything with sugar is good for you if it contains blue and green. yes, I think that’s how it goes.
we have four hours of traveling to do during the day. the first of our four family Christmas events. but back home in time for the seahawks game with friends. sounds exhausting? nope. we do it every year… for 20 years. that’s how it is.
so, i am baking some treats. for family and friends. and what better treat than my favorite cheerio-M&M-peanut butter bars. easy. everyone loves them. and seahawks colors!
CHEERIO COOKIE BARS
3 Tblsp. butter
6 c. mini marshmallows
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter (I use Jif)
5 c. cheerios
1/2-1 c. M&M’s (the more the better according to my kids)
in microwave, heat butter and marshmallows until puffy and butter is melted. about 3 minutes. remove and stir in peanut butter. then mix in cheerios and M&M’s. press into lightly greased pan. when cooled, cut into large pieces. place in cute plastic bags and tie with navy and lime green ribbon (available at any craft store). the original recipe calls for dropping them onto waxed paper. you can do that too. the bars are just easier. and in my house… easier is better.
yes, this recipe is in my cookbook. i will have more for sale in january if you are interested. until then, you can find some of the recipes right here.
