Today, I made two snacks to greet my kiddies as they came home from school: Chex Mix and Peanut Butter Brownies. Cat’s friend, Henry Higgins, came over for snacks and a mid-week movie. I love having new
guinea pigs, lab rats, guests.
The Chex Mix was simple:
Throw 3 different types of Chex, pretzel sticks, and nuts into the crockpot.
On the stove, melt some butter, add Worcestershire and some spices.
Two and a half hours on low.
Word to the wise: stir it every half hour or
a few of your Wheat Chex may burn.
I won’t tell you how I learned that.
I made some “skinny” brownies. 😉
It calls for Greek yogurt and oats instead of flour.
Cat likes peanut butter, but 007 can’t stand it.
Funny how two kids can be so completely opposite.
I say that a few times a day.
Half the brownies have pb and half do not.
When the kids came home, they were excited to try the new snacks.
007 really enjoyed the Chex mix.
If I let him, he may have finished the entire bowl.
Cat and Henry Higgins tried the brownies
and in true “foodie” fashion, they critiqued them.
And cracked themselves up.
I love these kids.
And they love food.
Overall, they liked the brownies, but not as much as “regular” brownies.
3 more pins to go.
