Another Snowy Day and a Yummy treat to share

 Good morning dear friends!

I hope this post finds you healthy and happy.  We've had very snowy and cold weather the last few weeks.  There is hope in the forecast though, for a rather nice warm up.  Hoping some of the over 2 feet of snow melts!

We've been spending a lot of time with family.  We had 3 of our grandsons over for a few days a week ago, and then the two girls for a night after Valentine's Day.  It's always such fun, and we love them so much.

Todd - who needs expensive toys when you can play with free berry crates...lol

Saturday we took a hike with our oldest son and his girls.  We were having squalls of light and fluffy lake effect snow and it made for some beautiful pictures.

I've also been doing a bit of creating - bunnies and mini quilts.  There are a few of the things I've been working on....


and a few more photos to share....

  I wanted to share this quick and easy cookie bar recipe with you too.  I made them last week and ooooh my...everyone loved them.  No baking required!

  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
For the chocolate peanut butter topping
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
Instructions
To make the peanut butter base
  1. Place the graham cracker crumbs, peanut butter, and powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl and stir together until combined.

  2. Press the mixture into an even layer in the bottom of a parchment-lined 9x13" pan.

To make the chocolate peanut butter topping
  1. Place the milk chocolate chips and peanut butter in a double boiler, stirring until smooth.

  2. Pour the mixture over the peanut butter base and smooth into an even layer with a spatula.

  3. Chill for 1 hour, or until set, before cutting into bars.  Store in the fridge.

     That's it for today dear ones.  I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to jot a comment below!  Stay warm, healthy and safe!

  2. Hi Wendy, making awesome memories with the grandchildren. They are all beautiful. I love your new creations. If I lived near you you could show me how to make mini quilts like that, they are lovely. And love your bunnies, you are so talented. I have all the ingredients, so I need to make those yummy bars. hugs, Lecia

  3. I love the new bunnies and the mini quilt, We had a lot of ice and snow last week, but all melted away now, In Alabama, we are not really used to that. Thank you for the recipe also. Stay safe and warm!
