Homemade Chocolatey Rice Crispies

These were easy to make. Five cups of rice crispy cereal, one package of marshmallows, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 4TBSP butter, and any chocolate chips you have lying around. I had four different bags with a small amount in each that I used.

Put foil in a baking dish and spray with cooking spray.

Melt the marshmallows and butter in a large skillet. Once melted put in cocoa powder, whisk until creamy. Add rice crispy cereal and half of the chocolate chips, stir until well coated.

Scoop the mixture into the pan then spread the chocolatey goodness out evenly. Sprinkle some of the chocolate chips on top.

Let cool about 15 minutes then cut and serve!

My boys loved these last night. There were four left when I go home from work today. I finished them.

Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store leftover truffles, covered, in refrigerator.

How-to : For easy dipping, place truffle ball in melted chocolate to coat; roll if necessary.  Lift truffle from chocolate using 2 forks (this will allow excess chocolate to run off) before placing on wax paper.

With a new start to life comes a great new phone, new oppurtunities as long as I have my kids I will be ok. I am having help but it all hurts. I am getting stronger every day. Things will eventually start to look up. They just have to.

Kids are in school.  I am still babysitting though I have an interview today at 11. I am excited, nervous, scared. It has been a long time since I have had an interview.

Mom and I went shopping Saturday.  I bought three shirts, a skirt, a shrug, and a dress. The dress is for my brothers wedding in November.

I will need to take a shower and figure out what outfit I am going to wear. I may post pictures.

Dead Reckoning

Another book to read on my list of books. I'm already reading four other books. The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox, Dark Visions by L.J. Smith, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by the late Stieg Larsson and Brisinger by Christopher Paolini. I know it is a lot but this mommy needs to keep her brain motivated otherwise it goes to mush and I dont think straight. I'm enjoying them all, I just need to really sit down and finish at least one before I read the new Sookie Stackhouse. Just looking at the cover is tempting to open it. My mom brought it to me this morning she said she got it in the mail yesterday and didn't read any of it. So I'll be the first one to turn its pages, bend its spine, to inhale the new book scent. I've never really touched a book until I read The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyers. Once I finished reading a friends copies I ended up with my own. Then I borrowed a Sookie novel and was hooked. Though reading mysteries has been a tough endeavour.
