Our mailwoman brought me a special surprise on Thursday so I fed the kids some sugar, lead them outside, gave them a box and I sat at the picnic table and grinned from ear to ear....
This is MONKEY MUNCH (as seen on Jon & Kate + 8). This is what I fed them.
So, I (with the help of my two boys) made a huge batch of it. It is SOOOOOOO good! All my kids are addicted to watching Jon & Kate on Monday nights and so they have been craving Monkey Munch and we have never made it.
Here is the recipe:
Put 9 cups of chex cereal (we use wheat for the extra fiber and vitamins) in a large bowl
Melt 1 cup of choc chips, 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/4 cup of butter in a saucepan.
Mix in 1/2 tsp of vanilla into pan when you turn the heat off.
Pour chocolate/PB mix over chex and stir thoroughly.
When all chex pieces are covered empty bowl into giant ziploc bag.
Pour in 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, zip bag and shake.
This is the CARDBOARD BOX (as seen in the aisle of any LOWE'S). This is what gave them.
Isn't it funny that you can have $14,000 worth of legos, Wii games, books, bikes, jump ropes, skateboards, balls and a neighborhood filled with friends and still they are "BOOOOOORED!" But you take a box that your new mailbox post came in, rip the ends open and throw it to the middle of the backyard and they are happily occupied for HOURS!!!
Perfect because that is JUST what I needed on this day!
This is what the MAILWOMAN BROUGHT (as seen on Amazon.com 2 days prior). This is what I did until they lost interest in their box!
This book has gone everywhere with me in the last 3 days (except church...there's a bigger book there!) and I have grabbed every second I could to read a few more words. I have cried, smiled and laughed out loud the whole way through. I LOVE IT!
