Sweets For The Sweets

Nothing brings a family closer than spending some quality time together. And with February being National Bake For Family Fun Month, I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite family-friendly recipes for you to share with your own loved ones.

Puppy Chow

  • 9 Cups Chex® Cereal
  • 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (melted)
  • ½ Cup Smooth Peanut Butter (melted)
  • ¼ Cup Butter (melted)
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 ½ Cups Powdered Sugar

 Microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter for 1 minute and stir together until smooth and add vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal and stir together until cereal is coated. Pour mixture into a large Ziploc bag and add powdered sugar—shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Enjoy!

ROLO® Pretzel Bites

  • Square Pretzels
  • ROLOs®
  • M&Ms® or Pecans

Preheat oven to 250° and add 25 pretzels on a foil-lined baking sheet. Then place an unwrapped ROLO® on top of each pretzel. Bake for 3 minutes or until ROLOs® have softened. Top each ROLO® with either an M&M® or pecan. Let cool. Enjoy! 

Both of these recipes are just as easy as they are tasty so I hope trying them with your family brings you as much fun as it’s brought mine. Happy family-time baking!
