School started last week here. My son went for the first 2 days, and then was home sick. Somehow he managed to get Strep in the first 2 days of school, really? It was a long weekend of trying to get him better. His fever has been impossible to get rid of, so he wasn’t exactly himself this weekend. Now with 4 doses of antibiotics in him, hopefully this will be the turning point. I know I could use a good nights sleep, can’t even imagine how good it will be for him!
These bars were one of a few desserts that our whole family liked. My husband isn’t much of a chocolate lover, and I am a complete choco-holic. So finding something we agree on is not easy. Peanut butter is one thing though! My husband came home from work one day, and asked if I could make something for him to bring to work the next day. I had just found a bag Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips in my pantry, so I figured I would make something with them. The recipe on the back of the bag looked good enough to me. They were a hit! People at worked loved them, we loved them, and they were great slightly warmed with ice cream on top later! I will gladly make these again!
