I know...it's the 11th. But I can't wait to blog about the fun day we had yesterday!! It was gorgeous out and we got all ready to go to the beach. When we were there, we lost the sun for a bit but played anyway. I need to touch up some of the photos and then I'll share those later.
It was a Friday 'day off school' for the kids so we decided to make the most of it. On the way home from the beach, the kids hands were freezing and they asked if they could have hot chocolate when we get home. Of course, marshmellows made their way into the converation! Out of no where, Ashley says 'what if they made marshmellows with peanutbutter dots inside! The conversation took off and developed into a series of 'ooooooh and what if you put carmel with peanutbutter and a little of...NO! what if you dipped...and, how about try....ect!'
All the way home these creative minds went to work. It was so cute because by the time we got home, we came up with this great recipe and while they were taking their baths and showers (to get rid of the piles of sand we brought home with us,) I layed out all the things we needed to try our new invention. The kids were SHOCKED!! They seriously couldn't belive I would allow such a sugar filled, full of fun, crazy, sensless adventure!!
We had a blast and decided it would be very fun to share the recipe.
Hmmmm....no name for them yet....
Large Pretzel Sticks
2 Recess Pieces bars (chopped)
8 Crushed Ritz Crackers
3 TBLS Peanutbutter
Smuckers Carmel Ice Cream Topping
1) Stab your pretzel stick into a marshmellow so it's on really well.
2) Arrange all your 'toppings' for dipping into paper plates and small bowls.
3) Dip your marsmellow TOP into the carmel and then dip it into the Ritz crumbs.
4) Using a knife, spread peanut butter all around the outside of the marshmellow.
5) Roll the peanutbutter sides into the Recess Crumbs
6) Put in the fridge for an hour to set ....or just eat 'em all up because they're sooooooo yummy! ;)
Wait until you see these faces!!!!
Warning*******Could cause extreme sugar high! Hey...that's why we are only going to do it once a year!
We actually had so much fun (well, and it was so delish) that we decided to officially declare that October 10th would always be Treat Invention Day for the Overby family. (They seriously cannot wait until next Oct. 10th and are already counting down the days!!! Who needs Disneyland? LOL!)
And...because I have a hard time bloggin' without sharing any recent scrappy stuff I've done, here is my latest page. I created it with my Scenic Route, Sonoma goodies for my GDT assignment at Create My Keepsake.
What are you up to this weekend? Hope it's somethin' fun!
