A good recipe and a brief update!

I haven't posted in a while, because I've been busy tending to sick folks. I think we're on the mend!

I have been thinking about the February family breakfast. I'll be posting the menu and recipes in a future post, and hopefully some pictures! Today, though, just a teaser, but I do have a good and easy recipe for you!

February breakfast will be on February 16. I don't want to get too predictable, so we're NOT doing a Valentine's theme! It's going to be a Miller Lodge Breakfast! As I said, details will follow!!

Here's that recipe I promised. It's from a Pampered Chef cookbook, and my neighbor, Lynne (not to be confused with my husband, Lynn. It's very confusing!) shared it with me. It's good and just the right amount of sweet!

S'Mores Galore

20 whole honey graham crackers, divided
6 bars (1.55 ounces each) milk chocolate candy, coarsely chopped
1 package (16 ounces) minature marshmallows, divided
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
3 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange a single layer of graham crackers to completely cover bottom of an 8"x8" pan, breaking crackers to fit. Toast in oven 2 minutes, then remove pan to rack to cool.

Coarsely break remaining crackers into large bowl, set aside. Coarsely chop chocolate bars and set aside.

Combine 3 cups marshmallows, 3 tablespoons of the butter and milk in a microwave proof bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Add half of the chopped chocolate; stir until chocolate is completely melted. Using a spatula or spoon, spread marshmallow mixture over graham crackers in pan.

Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter; toss with broken graham crackers. Add remaining marshmallows and chopped chocolate, tossing lightly. Spoon evenly over mixture in pan. Bake 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly browned. Cool 15 minutes. Cut into bars. Serve warm or cool.

Yield: 24 bars

Happy Cooking!

I will definately try this recipe. My family loves S'mores. Another one of your recipies that my family loves is the Peanut Butter Cup Squares. I may have to make both of these for a Valentine treat for them.

BTW, there is not enough room on your blog to write all of the weird things about me!
