Sometimes it is good to have some normalcy, especially with everything that has been going on around here so crazy! Friday night on our way to go pick up our daughter, we drove down the main strip in Joplin, Rangeline to see some of the heartache. Oh WOW! And I hear that if you go down 26th street it's even worse. We're still trying to stay out of the way for the clean up personnel. My dad and another guy went over yesterday to help a few people out. He said, if you haven't been down through the heart of it all, you haven't seen anything.
So anyway, back to the "normalcy". Every year on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend is my grandma's side of the family's family reunion. I was wondering if it would happen this year with everything going on, but it did. Usually the way it happens we all meet up around 12-1 at the church out side of town and we all bring covered dishes. I thought it might be fun for Tbug to contribute something so she and I went to work making a dessert. I'm through the strictest part of my diet, so I even though I wasn't supposed to have any, I nibbled a small piece just to try since this was a new recipe. YUMMO! :)
Tbug and my mother-in-law had made plans to have a sleep over the last time we had Tbug so when she went to Memaw's house on Saturday night, I guess they made sugar cookies and my mother-in-laws wonderful Chocolate chip cookies.
Anyway here's this really cool 4-ingredient dessert. It's not to bad, especially if you LOVE peanut butter. I myself really only like it on toast, but it's not bad here either :) And these are SUPER easy & quick... possibly why the name :)
Speedy Little Devils
1 pkg Devils Food Cake Mix, 1 stick melted butter (cooled),
1-7 oz jar marshmallow creme, 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Combine melted butter and dry cake mix until crumbly.
and sometimes you just have to get in there and work it with your hands...
Reserve 1 1/2 cups of this mixture.
Pat the remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 9x13 pan.
Next mix the peanut butter and marshmallow creme.
Spread evenly over the crumb mixture.
And this is about the time I lost my helper...
Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool and cut into bars.
