I recently learned something new about my desserts…
They can be used just like money in certain situations.
My oldest son has been using desserts in trades to get more/better lunches at school.
At lunch time, he gives anyone who wants a “taste” of the sweets…
then whoever will trade him the best lunch item, gets the goodies.
So far he has gotten pizza, garlic bread, and a plate of french fries.
I haven’t decided whether to be upset that he is trading away his lunch that I lovingly made,
or happy because so many of his friends are wanting my sweets…
For now I am going with happy because everyone likes good reviews of the things they make.
It is just like getting comments on this blog from someone who made your recipe and loved it.
Which by the way, I LOVE to hear from you guys when that happens.
Totally makes my day…just sayin:-)
If you are looking for a fast and easy brownie to take to any picnics or family gatherings,
these Fluffernutter Fudge Brownies have your name written all over them.
Chocolate brownies made from a box…or get jiggy and make one from scratch if you like….whatev.
I’m kind of a box mix girl for now. But only because of convenience.
Then whip up an easy fudge from chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk
and fill it with whatever candy floats your boat.
My boat is always floating with marshmallows and Reese’s candies.
Something about that peanut butter and marshmallow stuff that just gets me every single time.
Last week I made a pan of these for our church picnic…
and the only thing that came home from the picnic was a plate of crumbs.
Love it when that happens.
Of course my son wasn’t too happy because then he didn’t have anything to barter with on Monday.
He actually had to eat his own lunch that day.
I guess he forgot about the cookies in the freezer. Ooops!
Any of these Reese’s treats would make good picnic food too:
