Goodmorning everyone! This week has been awful busy for us ... and even though its rained everyday for a week we have still managed to keep on the go! Got to love the summer! I never knew there were so many indoor activities you could do ... The things that happen when you get creative! :)
So I went Easy for this weeks Kids in The Kitchen, with our no-bake reeces peanut butter haystacks, ok anything with chocolate and peanut butter in them you know is DELISH! And Lu had a blast eating, I mean making them! Lets get started!
No Bake Cookies- Reeces Peanut Butter Hay Stacks!
This is what you'll need ... 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of milk choc. morsels, and 1 and 1/4 cup of chow mein noodles (can be found in the international food section of any grocery store.)
You'll need to measure and pour the morsels, and by the time Lu got done picking at them, we has a little less than a cup :) Place in microwave for 1 min.
mix the peanut butter in AFTER choc is melted. Lu did love the spoon! I actually have a picture of her eating off it several times, I dont know why I didn't put it on here, shame on me! Measure out the noodles, and then pour then into the choc/peanut butter mixture, and lightly stir, or fold in. I wish people could actually see her in action when she is doing this stuff, it is quite hilarious sometimes, and I don't post the "blooper" pictures, but I should, she is a "big" girl now and INSIST that I let her do EVERY part, no matter if at the end you could lick the counter top because they taste so good, just like reeces. Anyhow, the next step is obvious place them on some prachment paper, and the recommened time is 2 hr chill in the fridge, which we never follow because we are to anxious to eat, so 15 mins in the freezer works just fine!
Don't they look delsih?? YUM (this is before they are chilled)
As always, grab a button and join in, get your Kids in the Kitchen and have fun, it could be anything from kid friendly recipes, no bake items, baked items, dinner, lunch, hey it could be play dough you can eat ... lets have some fun, our kids will only be little for so long!!!
Again, Please dont forget to link your page in my comment section, and last week I tried something new take a look, at the end of the evening I linked everyone's page to the bottom of mine so that everyone can easily click and go straight to the people's pages that have participated, I am giving Mr. Linky a rest and doing it my way for a little while.
