Sweet Find

We used to hate it when we’d ask our mom what we were having for dinner and she would reply, “Whatever you can find.” We renamed this dinner WYCF. And wouldn’t you know it -we still have it, but this time were the moms saying it! We’re applying this approach to our treat this week, except there’s no dislike involved. Our baking kitchens are full of all kinds of goodies and nothing is off limits. We’re loving every bite of our WYCF Brownie Parfaits!

Directions:

Bake 1 box of brownies according to directions on the back of the box. Once cool slice into bite size squares.

Layer baked brownies with your favorite toppings in a jar and eat up! Yum!

Snow Day Sweets

Nothing says a snow day like warm Chocolate Chip Cookies. After shoveling multiple times in the last couple of days, we have decided that we’ve definitely earned a sweet treat. And really, there is never a need to twist our arm anyway ‘cause when the snow falls all we want to do is warm up with something baking in our oven. And then, when we throw in a little heath and m&ms, we know we’ve found the best way to watch the snow fall…before heading back out to shovel again.
