She's psychic...

I was *just* coming to post about a new 'recipe' The Girl came up with and I happened to click Linda's blog first and found out that it's National S'mores Day!

The Girl melted chocolate chips, marshmallows, and a dab of peanut butter in a bowl, then stirred in Rice Crispy cereal. Yum-O! (Oh, and she topped it with sprinkles too because that's what you do when you're 7.)

It's not exactly a S'more, but pretty darn close! I was impressed by her cooking skills and that she didn't try to add something like mustard.

Yummy! That reminds me of the stuff we ate as a kid. They called it "Puppy Chow"

9 cups rice chex cereal

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup margarine

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Place the chex cereal in a large bowl. Large enough to have enough room to stir things up. Melt the chocolate chips, margarine, and peanut butter in a microwave safe dish, in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until smooth and creamy when stirred. Add the vanilla, and stir. Pour over the cereal and stir until the cereal is evenly coated. Put the powdered sugar in a large size plastic bag, add the coated cereal and shake until evenly coated with the powdered sugar. Spread over a sheet of waxed paper until cooled off. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
