#665 - Scotcheroos

These are one of my most favorite treats, my sister's too.

As always, these are amazing!
1 cup sugar
 1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups rice krispies
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Combine sugar and corn syrup in pot and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture begins to bubble.  Remove from heat.  Stir in peanut butter; mix well.  Add rice krispies; stir until well combined.  Press mixture into buttered 13x9 inch pan.
Melt chocolate and butterscotch chip in microwave until melted (careful they don't burn).  (if the rice krispie mixture is still hot, you can just put the chips on them and they should melt.) Spread evenly over rice krispie mixture.  Cool until firm.  Cut into bars.  Makes 48, 2x1 inch bars.

#664 - Chicken in Dumplings

I got this recipe from my sister in law, it's really good.  One of Pepe's favorites.

The original recipe is here.  I adjusted mine a little to make it easier.

Chicken in Dumplings
1 8 oz package of cream cheese chive and onion or one regular cream cheese and a bunch of green onions cut up
2 tbsp softened butter
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cup cubed/shredded chicken
1 can of mushroom pieces
2/3 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped
6 tbsp melted butter
2 can crescent rolls (or you can make homemade rolls)

Combine cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter and pepper. Add chicken and mushrooms and set aside.Mix crumb stuffing and walnuts together and set aside.
Melt 6 tablespoons butter.
Separate rolls, stretch a little bigger. Take 1/4 cup of chicken mixture and put in roll. Make into a ball and seal edges well. Roll in butter and then into stuffing nut mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Top with chicken gravy (cream of chicken soup).

#663 - sunset

This is a picture I took last December after we moved.  I just love living close to the water, but not too close so I'm always worried about the boys escaping!  We have great sunsets here too!

#662 - Scotch-Brite Soap Dispensing Brush

When I went to visit my sister back in November I fell in love with her dish brush because it was compact, but still dispensed soap and you could have control over how much (if any) soap was dispensed.  
I guess she saw my love for it because she gave it to me for Christmas!
Thanks Casi!

#661 - Mountain Mama Mudslide Cake

This is one of Pepe's most favorite desserts and he got it from his roommate in college.

Mountain Mama Mudslide Cake
1/2 cup butter (room temp)
1 c flour 
1 c chopped pecans 
1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese 
1 c powdered sugar 
1 8 oz container, whipped topping 
1 4 oz box chocolate instant pudding 
1 4 oz box vanilla instant pudding 
2 c milk 
1 chocolate bar grated
Combine the butter, flour and chopped pecans. Mix well and press into bottom of 13x9x2 inch pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool. 
In medium sized mixing bowl combine cream cheese and powdered sugar until fluffy and then fold in one cup of whipped topping. Spread over baked crust. 

Combine chocolate and vanilla instant puddings with cold milk in medium sized bowl. Mix together until thick and creamy and pour over cheese Mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping. Grate chocolate bar over top and chill until serving time.
I couldn't find my 13x9 pan, so I made it in 2 smaller pans (a 9 inch pie pan and 8 inch square pan).  Worked out perfect.

I've been posting lots of recipes lately because I'm trying to get all of our favorites into one place.

Just found these 3 pictures I took the next day.
