Jonah came to me the other day and wanted to do some baking, so I agreed to lend a hand
Yes, yes, it's Lent and we shouldn't be eating sweets.
But still, I opted to seize the opportunity of helpfulness from my holed-up-in-his-man-cave-boy.
He pulled out a recipe from his favorite magazine and we got to work.
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sugar
3 tsp. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups crispy rice cereal
Line cupcake pan with liners (ours made about 18).
Combine butter and milk in saucepan on low heat.
Once butter has melted, add the sugar, cocoa and vanilla. Bring to a gentle boil.
Boil 2 minutes and then remove from heat.
Add peanut butter and stir until smooth.
Stir in crispy rice cereal.
Spoon crunch mixture into cupcake liners.
Place in the fridge to set for about 1-2 hours.
Enjoy your crunchy treats!
One very happy little boy.
Our bellies thanked him afterward.
*Jonah highly recommends the Thomas magazine if you can find it at your local grocery store. He's almost eight and still requests a copy when we stop at the one area store that carries them. They have fun activities, stories and an easy recipe too.
