A chocolate kind of day!

Some days just beg for chocolate!
Today was one of those days!

 The kids and I made 2 easy treats!

First: Cookie Brownie stacks

Start with cookie dough and spread in bottom of baking dish...

Okay, then I forgot about the camera...

Mix up a brownie mix according to package instrucions
(ours was Ghirardelli double chocolate)
and just pour it over the top of the cookie dough!
Bake at 350* for 45 minutes...
Cut into 24 pieces and serve into cupcake liners!

Easy and yummy!


Next we made Peanut Butter Rice Crispy bon-bons!
Got the recipe last Easter from my s-i-l :)
(again, camera was MIA!)

So ingredients are:
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar

mix in saucepan on low/med heat and
stir frequently, because this can burn fast.
I brought mine to a light bubble and
kept stirring for about 2 minutes...

Then added 1 tsp of vanilla
and poured the liquid onto 5 cups of rice crispies!

Then with some cold water for the hands,
I rolled out the dough into small balls.

let them cool.

Then the frosting!
melt together:
1 cup of chocolate chips
1 cup of butterscotch chips


I stirred in 1 tsp of canola oil to help it dip better...

You could, in theory, dip the entire ball...so call me lazy,

but I like to see the crispy too!

These would be super cute with some sprinkles!
