twenty-five days of christmas, day one

By December 1, 2011 One Comment

i am not sure what the next twenty-five days will hold, but hopefully they will include a post a day until christmas. we have lots of plans, crafts, baking, gifts, etc…and i hope to share them with you every day. can you believe there are only twenty-five more days until christmas?!

to start off…baking! this was technically made for my thirtieth birthday but this is a delicious holiday item. sarah and i got this recipe from a sweet lady in our church, kathy jones. i think it’s called peanut krackle but it could be called anything, because it’s delicious! christian thinks this may have been the fruit growing on the tree of good and evil. it actually compares to barbara raheb’s chocolate chip cake!

2 bags white chocolate or vanilla chips
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup peanut butter (i used smooth, either works)
1 cup peanuts (salted is better)
~2 cups crispy rice cereal

in the microwave (or stove top), melt the white chips until smooth and creamy. mix in the marshmallows first, followed by the peanut butter and peanuts and lastly the crispy rice cereal (add anywhere from 2 to 2.5 cups of cereal…it should be nice and stiff). press into a buttered 9×13 pan. place in the fridge (or freezer) until cooled/solid and then cut into squares. now prepare to be addicted to these tasty little morsels!

why yes, we did teach mercy to crawl for peanut krackle. that doesn’t mean we actually FED it to her. and yes, it did work.
