Recipe Box

had a request for these recipes...sorry I didn't get them posted sooner.

Buckeye Bars
1 pkg choco chips (12 oz.)
2 sticks butter
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. brown sugar

Mix together 1 stick melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, peanut butter, and br. sugar & spread into 9x13 pan. Melt chocolate chips with 1 stick butter. Mix and spread over peanut butter mixture. Let cool. Cut into small (1 inch square) bars and enjoy! YUMM!

Puppy Chow
(okay, so I usually do not measure for this...just pour in, coat with chocolate, and mix...I'll try to "measure" for you here.) Typically, I double this and mix in my giant popcorn bowl. It disappears too fast!

3 c. Crispix cereal
3 c. Bugles (original) snacks
2c. nuts
2c. raisins
2c. Red & Green M&M's
2-3c. pretzels
1 package of Almond Bark (20 oz.) or white chocolate, melted

Mix all till well coated in chocolate, spread out on lightly greased foil or waxed paper to allow chocolate to harden. Store in ziplocs or airtight containers.

Do the buckeye bars come right out of the pan? I need them looking nice for a party.

Shelli-yes, beautifully!! I usually put them right into the fridge to cool, then cut them with a sharp knife. Need to use a mini spatula to get them out but Voia! Perfect little squares.

The recipe for buckeye bars calls for powdered sugar & brown sugar. Do both sugars get mixed into peanut butter layer ingredients?

Thanks!... this would be way easier and faster than making buckeyes.

April. Yes! Sorry I missed that as I typed it out. I'll make the change right away...
