Muddy Buddies

>> Friday, January 27, 2012

It seems like I've reached a lot of milestones with my online activity today. 100th post on the baby blog. 10,000 photos on my Flickr account. And this is the 900th post on (never home)maker. That's a lot of hours spent online. Certainly more than I've spent in the kitchen.

Especially lately. My time spent baking and cooking is limited as Ada becomes more and more aware. She's awake far more hours of the day now, requiring me to stop, drop, and play. As much as I'd like to say I'm a.l.w.a.y.s grabbing fruit and veggies for snacks, I've had a new favorite lately.

And it's no-bake!


What you'll need . . . 
  • 2-1/2 cups corn chex
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter or Earth Balance
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup powdered sugar
Method . . .
  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the peanut butter, chocolate, and butter. Heat on high for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, toss in your chex. Then add the peanut butter mixture. Stir with a spatula until well-coated.
  3. Then in a large Ziploc bag, toss in the powered sugar and chex. Shake, rattle, and roll until everything is -- again -- well-coated.
I'm not even going to pretend I made up this recipe. It's just one that's been in my dessert repertoire for a few years, but it's all over the internet, so I can't remember where I found it. I tend to use less powdered sugar -- sticking with 1/4 cup at most. I also keep everything chilled in the refrigerator. I just like it that way.

Today on (never home)maker, baby! I wrote all about the first weeks of breastfeeding. There's definitely graphic boob-talk on there. Don't say you weren't warned . . .
