Thankful Thursdays # 10

I’m thankful for pie. Specifically, I am thankful for Edwards Cookies and Creme pie. Yum. If you haven’t tried it you should. It’s in the frozen section. My husband picked up one last night, and not surprising that I only have one very teeny piece left. I have no self-control. And to be fair, my daughter had a few bites too.

Since I don’t have self-control I am also thankful for stretchy pants. Because when my stomach gets overfilled with delicious pie no one can really tell. And I get to remain in comfy clothes and don’t feel like I’m going to burst out of them.

I am also thankful that my husband only picked up one. I was going to ask him to pick me up at least 2, possibly 3. It’s a good thing he didn’t because I bet I would be almost finished with the third one by now.

Just look at that little slice of heaven. Look at it! This picture makes me want to go down to the fridge and finish what’s left. The only thing that isn’t my most favorite about this pie is that you need to wait for it to be thawed before digging in. I want my instant gratification.

Treat Tuesday – Deluxe Chocolate Marshmallow Bars

Pull out the stretchy pants, these are delectable! This was my Grammy’s recipe. I don’t make these often and when I made them last week I remembered why. I ate the entire pan by myself in 2 days! Pants are definitely fitting a bit tighter this week. Worth it!

Start by creaming together:

* 3/4 cup butter

* 1 1/2 cups sugar

* 3 eggs

* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Once that is nice and smooth, set that aside for a bit. Mix together:

* 1 1/3 cups flour

* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 3 Tablespoons baking cocoa

* 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional, I don’t do this)

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Spread in a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.

Once the cake/cookie like mixture is done, sprinkle 4 cups of mini marshmallows evenly over the cake. Return it to the oven for 2-3 minutes; until the marshmallows are melted.

For the topping:

* 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

* 3 Tablespoons butter

* 1 cup peanut butter

* 1 cup rice krispies (optional, I use sometimes, but is also good without)

Combine chocolate chips, butter and peanut butter in a sauce pan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until melted. Add rice krispies. Spread over the bars. Then refrigerate until the chocolate mixture hardens. Then enjoy in your stretchy pants because you will more than likely eat the whole pan.
