I just can’t stay away from the dollar corner at Target, it’s dangerous, haha! Today I got six small natural box crates for my pantry $1 each, alphabet stamps $1 and alphabet stickers $1. I have lots of odds and ends in my pantry floating around, so I figured these little storage containers would be perfect! I already had stamp ink at home in silver, so I stamped each container depending on its’ contents. So far I have, candy, oatmeal, and misc. I have three leftover for when I organize my pantry ( I plan on doing this soon!!). Here’s how it looks!
Speaking of dangerous, here’s a recipe I remember so well from my childhood… Puppy chow. My Nana used to make it in the summer’s for us to munch on, and I haven’t had it since. I had all the ingredients for it, so I got the urge to give it a try!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 9 cups rice cereal (Chex)
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup chocolate chips ( I used 3 Hersey’s bars because that’s what I had!)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- large gallon zip-lock bag
Start off by adding the butter, peanut butter and chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute. Once melted, add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and mix well. Add your 9 cups of rice cereal to the mixture and stir until cereal is completely coated. Put your 3 cups of powdered sugar in a gallon zip-lock bag, add cereal mixture, and shake, shake, shake!! That’s it….Tastes just like I remember, yummy!
