We managed to get our trampoline in the hole. Sort of. My husband still has to dig out a little more dirt because one side is higher than the other. Yikes! Times like these I’m glad I’m the woman.
I didn’t have time for crafting this weekend, so I’m sharing a recipe. A chocolate recipe. Mint Chocolate Cookie Crunch to be exact. I’ve been on a chocolate kick lately. Not sure why, but it seems like I am always craving it. Which is strange for me during the summer, because usually I prefer cold, creamy, fruity desserts during hot weather. Not this year. It’s been all about chocolate. And of course I always love chocolate with mint. Yum!
I got this recipe from Finding Joy in My Kitchen. She linked it up with my Cookie Exchange way back in December. I love chocolate and mint together, so I knew it was only a matter of time before I tried them. I finally did, and I’m not so sure it was a good thing. These babies are heavenly! And they are so easy to make that it is scary. I had to give them away because I could NOT stop eating them. I love the crunch from the cereal and the Oreos. So darn good!!
Mint Chocolate Cookie Crunch
1/2 bag Andes mints, unwrapped
12oz bag of chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
2 cups Rice Crispies cereal
1/2 package of Oreos, crushed
Melt mints and chocolate chips in a large glass bowl in the microwave at 50% power, stirring often. Add the Rice Crispies and Oreos and stir till combined. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let sit till hardened. That’s it!
