As I sit here and type, I am listening to the weather channel people get all “Doppler-y”.
I think they are far too excited about the prospect that I might not have power for a week.
Far. Too. Excited.
Yep, we were told to prepare for power outages for 7-10 days.
So I am basically dying.
Because that means I will have no internets.
And between you and me, a life without the internets isn’t a future I can handle.
I mean, I need food and stuff too, but mostly the internets.
Yeah, I said it.
So I am hoping that all these weather people, standing on the beach in their raincoats and boots “braving the weather” are all wrong.
Luckily though, I made some treats to get me through.
And they are totally relevant this week where the weather is trying to ruin my kid’s Halloween because they include Candy Corn.
And when I’m not drinking Candy Corn, I’m eating it. But honestly in this case, you can’t even taste the Candy Corn…they just add an element of sweetness. So don’t fear all you crazy candy corn haters., you’ll like these. I promise.
Sorry I just said Candy Corn 17 times. candycorncandycorncandycorn.
Anyway, these are Scarecrow Bars. Yum.
It all starts with a cake mix…
Mix that with some butter and an egg and you have a delicious crust…
Once the crust is done you’ll need to move fast.
First crush some Rice Chex…
You’ll also need some marshmallows, candy corn and Honey Roasted Peanuts.
Bake that for 1-2 minutes, just long enough for the marshmallows to puff.
While your marshmallows are puffing, stir your candy corn, Chex and peanuts into the peanut butter mixture…
Keep your fingers crossed for me that Sandy doesn’t kick my butt!!
