Cookie Baking Night 05/02/15

Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Emily, Carissa, Alli, and Rylar.


Carissa arrived earlier than everyone else, and she was kind enough to help me do a little weeding in the flower garden. 




Tonight we made one of my old "stand by" recipes, Chex Bars. Cereal, nuts, M&Ms, caramel, what's not to love? (And you don't have to turn on the oven).






After everyone was situated for our Bible time tonight, we read from Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland. We read chapter 8 entitled "God is Everywhere". Emily read Psalm 95:1-6 from the Bible for us. As is often the case, a lively discussion was had around what we learned.



The weather outside was lovely this evening, so we ended our time together with a walk to the local gas station for an ice cream treat. 




As usual, a fun time was had by all. 


Here is the Chex Bar recipe if anyone is interested:

Chex Bars
In large bowl, mix together:
4 cups Chex cereal
1 cup p-nuts
1 eight-ounce bag M&Ms

In medium saucepan cook:
½ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup corn syrup
2 tablespoon flour
Bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute.

Pour caramel mixture over cereal mixture. Mix well. Press into 9x13" pan.
Cool completely. Cut and serve.
