It's a good thing I didn't say what...

It's a good thing that I didn't say what I would be blogging about this week, because I would be in a heap of trouble right now. Last week, I promised to be more consistent with my blog entries and I commited to at least one blog entry a week. Well, the week stops here and here's is my one entry. I don't have a craft project to share, but I do have a recipe to share and the labeling is sorta crafty (that should count for something). Anyway...it's late. Without further ado (about nothing), here is my Pi├Ęce de r├ęsistance (sounds fancy huh?)...

little bites of Heaven
I made these for a Christmas party. Apparently simple (recipe) is sometimes better. These were a hit - I brought an empty plate home.

These were so easy to make. My hubby got the recipe from a co-worker eons ago and they have been a Christmas favorite every since.







Recipe:
½ cup sugar
½ cup corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
2 cup Rice Krispies

Directions:
1. Mix sugar and corn syrup together in a non-stick pot, bring to a boil, and then cut from heat 2. Stir in peanut butter and Rice Krispies
3. Spoon to wax paper

Optional: You can embellish the treat however you like. I melted some Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate chips and drizzled over the top of half the batch.

Voila! Easy Peezy!

Signage (the sorta crafty part):
I printed the recipe title in red TwizotHmk font (Microsoft) on some Georgia-Pacific White CS. I cut it out to make a flag and wrapped it around a toothpick and secured with tape. The tent was printed in the same way. The corners were rounded. I affixed a mini artificial leaf with a glue dot to the tent. The text may be a little hard to read, but it says..."little bites of heaven...from Alberta's Kitchen"

I would like to extend a special thanks to my best bud...for threatening me (in a loving way) and to my crafty bud for that gentle nudge that inspired me to get this post done (as promised). Thanks girls! If it weren't for you, I might have denied you the pleasure of this lovely recipe. LOL! Alright...I'm outta here. Nighty Nite!

'til I craft again or have something to say (I know, I know...it better be within a week)...
