Daily Thought – September 5

Who likes Rice Krispie Squares? And chocolate? Well this recipe is for you!

Rice Krispie Roll Ups

1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cups mini marshmallows (10.5 ounce bag)
5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter

Melt butter in saucepan. Add marshmallows. Over low heat, melt the marshmallows. Add Rice Krispies and mix well. Spread evenly into a greased cookie sheet.

In a microwaveable bowl, combine chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave for one minute, remove and stir. If chips are not melted, return for another 30 seconds. Stir until melted. Spread over the Rice Krispies.

Let set in a cool place just until the chocolate sets (if the chocolate hardens, it will be not be easy to roll!)

Loosen all around the edges with a knife or metal spatula. Starting on the long side, start to roll. If desired, decorate with sprinkles.

Tip: Roll up in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour. Take out and slice. It’s much easier to slice when it’s been chilled.

Slice and enjoy!

Daily Thought – September 2

Happy September! I am now all moved in to my new apartment – boxes await me.

Helpful hints when moving on your own:

Number 1 – When you are moving, do not sleep in the car the night before. Cramps and exhaustion from an uncomfortable sleep do not help when moving yourself. Just a helpful little hint!

Number 2 – stay hydrated! But don’t drink water from a bottle that was sitting in the car on a hot day – it was gross.

Number 3 – try to find someone to help you if at all possible. I managed to load the car up and unload and now unpacking, but it’s a lot of work by yourself!

Number 4 – Remember to buy dish soap – I have lots of dirty dishes at the moment and no soap to wash them!

Number 5 – keep a positive attitude! Don’t stress too much – it all gets done eventually. Just enjoy the new change and the new challenges!
