These are the gifties I made for my co-workers for Christmas. They contain a super sweet, but fun concoction referred to as "Puppy Chow". It is a great recipe in that is takes all of five minutes to make, I think the clean up took longer, lol!
Just in case you are intrigued, here is the recipe:
1 box Crispix cereal
1 12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups icing sugar
In a microwavable bowl, melt chips, margarine and peanut butter. Heat approx 1-2 minutes total, stopping to stir. Stir well.
Pour cereal into a large bowl. Pour melted mixture over and mix to completely coat cereal.
Put icing sugar in a very large bowl with a lid. Pour in chocolate coated cereal. Put lid on tightly and shake until cereal is completely covered.
Store in a sealed container on the counter or in the freezer. Enjoy!
Alert - very sweet - grab a tall glass or milk or a cup of tea to enjoy with this snack!
Anyhow, the most enjoyable part for me was decorating these mini bags of course.
If you are a regular reader, you will know that I am currently a washi tape addict - I just can't seem to get enough of the stuff - it's quick, easy, colourful and versatile!
I have used the colour combo at The Paper Players this week. LOVE this colour combo! I think I'll be using it again soon! Did you hear? They are having a guest design team call. I put my name in the hat last week, but now realize that only one entry per person allowed. Oh well, a fab colour combo anyhow! Head on over to check it out.
Time to sign and address some more Christmas cards!
