Welcome winter wonderland (a bit of sarcasm)… I’ll admit I am not one that embraces this whole snow thing. It’s my second winter in Minneapolis and today (Saturday) is the first snow. I’ll admit that I can drive in snow and go about a daily routine but I’m from Alabama and a part of me morphs back to when growing up if we saw snow it meant no driving and no leaving the house…. this is not the case in Minneapolis. I do have things I need to do today but will they get done… that is a good question because I have no motivation to leave this little cocoon I have built for myself (i.e. flannel pajamas, warm fleece blanket, and a full dvr of shows to keep me entertained)
But on another note… I did not have to teach yesterday so I decided to whip up a batch of Cheerio Bars for Justin and go visit him at work. These bars are so easy to make and all the ingredients you can keep in your pantry for last minute entertaining.
1 12oz package chocolate chips
1 12oz package butterscotch chips
1 c. peanut butter
1 package mini marshmallows
3 cups Cheerios
Melt chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in microwave. Stir in peanut butter. In another bowl stir together the cheerios and marshmallows. Then pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl of cheerios and marshmallows and mix until combined. Press into a 9×13 pan. Chill for at least an hour and then cut into squares.
