I used butterscotch chips, nuts, coconut, m&m’s, and of course oats. However, I think they would be fantastic with some raisins or dates, maybe a little orange zest and cinnamon, or peanut butter candies. Honestly, you can just use whatever you like, or whatever you have in your pantry.
This caramel corn is more crunchy than sticky. As it should be. You still get that awesome caramely flavor without the fear of emergency dental work. And, because the Chex cereal tends to hold more caramel than the popcorn, there are actually a few bites that are caramel-free. Or caramel light, I guess.
This particular flavor combo was suggested to me by a friend. A brilliant friend. A friend who knows what’s good. I was kind of surprised, actually. You can taste both the onion and the dill in these crackers, but the combination of the two flavors was something else entirely.
This pavlova, by the way, is the perfect classical dessert, because it’s sort of classical itself. It’s named after a Russian ballerina. And, just like her, it’s delicate and fabulous.
When I spied these completely adorable Bunny Tails recently, I knew I had to give them a try myself. Partly because they’re adorable, but mostly because they are coconut. I can’t wait to make these for our Easter celebration!
One of my alternatives to junk-food snacking this season is these Granola Bites. There is still enough sweetness in them to make them really fun and delicious, while packing a protein punch that keeps the cravings at bay. Plus? I love peanut butter. YUM.
I can’t believe March is over already. It kind of flew by for me. You know what I love about March? Girl Scout Cookie season. St. Patrick’s Day. My nephew’s birthday. And last but not least, chocolate peanut butter day. Oh yeah, baby!
Since my daughter had an upset stomach and a bad school day, I figured a little light, refreshing, minty beverage might be a welcome relief. Plus, it was as good an excuse as any to make this fun beverage I have been craving for a while now.
I figured it would be a good time to revisit the cream cheese mints. There’s something about the mint flavor that is so refreshing, don’t you think? And, I made them green, because it’s March.
I don’t want to brag, but this might be one of the most brilliant concoctions I have ever dreamed up. I wish I had thought about this when we had the big krispie-treat-contest at the family reunion 2 years ago. I totally would have blown them away.
