Candy Corn M&M’s Crispy Treats

Crispy treats are great, and I think they’re even better when you make them with extra add-ins! Last winter, I made some Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cup Crispy Treats which were really good, so I thought I’d try an autumn version with candy corn. I found this recipe at MyRecipes.com which had both candy corn and M&M’s. I thought I’d add some chopped peanuts too, since I like the candy corn-chocolate-peanut combination (you could use cashews instead of peanuts, if you like). Continue reading

Zucchini-Banana Bars

Now that we’re in the middle of summer, those of you with vegetable gardens may have more zucchini than you know what to do with! If you do, these Zucchini-Banana Bars are a great recipe to make! They’re so moist and yummy, just as you would expect, with shredded zucchini and mashed bananas in them. And they’re flavored with some of my favorite spices—cinnamon and nutmeg (I added a little more spice than the original recipe called for). Not only that, they’re also topped with a thick and rich cream cheese frosting.

Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars

One of the things I like best about these Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars is that they are made with fresh strawberries instead of jam. I first made these a few months ago and loved the rich, buttery taste of these bars that are big on strawberry flavor! They’re a nice, simple Continue reading

Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats

I don’t think I ever would have made these Thick & Chewy Peanut Butter Crispy Treats if it hadn’t been for Marijo. One day at work I went by her desk and she had three bags of marshmallows sitting on one side of her desk area. “What are you going to do with those?” I asked. “Someone had extra marshmallows and gave me some,” she said. “I’ll probably give them to my grandkids. Do you want a bag?” Continue reading
