Where my mother found this recipe, I don’t know.  I just know she has been making it as long as I can remember and I never get tired of these.  I feel the need to make them every Christmas.  🙂  They make great gifts, they freeze well, the kids can help make them….there is NOTHING bad to say about them except that they are ADDDICTING.  🙂  Teachers are getting them for Christmas this year.

ENJOY!

PB Squares

Ingredients:  peanut butter, wheat thins, chocolate bark

Directions:  Spread peanut butter on one wheat thin & top with another wheat thin.  Do this with an entire box or two of wheat thins.  Melt the chocolate bark according to package directions. (I usually work with about half a package at a time so that it doesn’t harden before I’ve used it all.)  Dip the wheat thin/peanut butter sandwiches in the chocolate and turn to coat.  Place on wax paper to harden.

Try not to eat them all.  🙂

Frozen Fruit Cups (from OAMM)

I made these last summer when I tried the July 2011 menu from Once a Month Mom.  My Hubby was requesting these, so while he was on travel, the kids and I (and Mom the photographer) made up a bunch.  He was thrilled when he got home and these were waiting in the freezer.  They are a healthy, cold, refreshing summer treat.

As for making with the kids, my eight year old sliced the bananas and poured in all the fruit.  My five year old put in all the liquids.  Then my eight year old used a measuring cup to divide up the mixture into single serve containers (you can see them behind my son).  It was a great group activity!

Enjoy!

Chocolate Frozen Cookies

Leave a comment

I found this recipe thumbing through my sister’s recipe notebook.  It is originally a Weight Watchers recipe and is pretty much a “no bake” cookie. The kids and I tried it yesterday.  It was simple to mix up and we tasted them today.  They are pretty tasty.  I think it has more of a dark chocolate flavor and I would like more of a sweet milk chocolate flavor.  But overall, not bad!  Give ’em a try these next few days when its too hot to turn on the oven.

Chocolate Frozen Cookies from Weight Watchers

1/4 cup fat free skim milk (I used 2%)

2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

2 Tbsp. sugar

1/4 cup chunky peanut butter (I used creamy)

1 cup old fashioned oats

2 tsp. canola oil

-Mix milk, cocoa, and sugar in small saucepan over low heat.

-Bring to boil, remove from heat.  Add peanut butter and stir into mix until melted.

-Stir in oatmeal and oil.

-Drop 16 spoonfuls onto baking sheet lined with wax paper.  Freeze for at least 4 hours or even better over night.

Last night, I spoke at a military spouses’ event…so much fun!  I made them this cake (recipe from my wonderful grandmother) & everyone loved it.  It tastes best cold with Cool Whip on top.  But, just so you know…it is ugly.  🙂

1 cup coconut
1 pk. (8 oz.) cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 stick butter (softened)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cake according to package directions.

Butter bottom of a 9 x 13 in. pan. Place pecans and coconut in bottom of

pan. Pour cake batter over top. Mix powdered sugar, butter, and cream cheese together. Drop by spoonfuls on top of the cake batter. Bake for
