It was late in the day and everyone was still a little out of whack from mom being sick. I got medicine yesterday and feel a lot better. Not 100% but, according to daddy, good enough to go back on mommy duty. That usually involves cooking. We decided to make some wonderful toddler treats to go in lunches for the girls tomorrow. I got the ingredients out, cleared a spot for prep work and invited the girls over. That was the last bit of control I had. Recipe first, crazy pictures to follow. Adapted from our Picture Me Cooking cookbook.
- 3 cups wheat cereal
- 3 cups corn or rice cereal
- 3 cups Nutty O's
- 1 cup pretzel pieces
- 1 cup peanuts
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 lbs white chocolate melting disks
In a very large bowl mix together cereals, pretzels and nuts. Melt white chocolate and stir in cinnamon. Pour white chocolate sauce over mix and stir evenly to coat. Pour mix onto parchment paper lined baking sheet and let dry. Break into pieces and place in a sealed container to store.
