Butterscotch M&M Bars

Last night we went to my son’s first grade musical, Dinostars.  He played a Pterodactyl, and had a speaking part.  He did a great job!  All the kids did a great job, they were all so cute dressed up like dinosaurs, singing their songs. Amazing how grown up he is getting.  He turns 7 next month.  While he was at school yesterday, I went out and bought him a new pair of shoes.  They were the same size as mine!  Seriously?!  My 6 year old has the same size feet as me?  I am really not sure how I feel about this.

Despite how big he is getting, I can still win him over with treats .  Hopefully that will never change.  He was a big fan of these bars.  He doesn’t always like white chocolate, but he did in here!  I had seen these White Chocolate M&M’s all over the place, I just had pick up a bag, and try them myself.  My husband loves butterscotch, so I thought I would mix the two together.  He loved these Blondies I made, but I wanted the butterscotch flavor to go all throughout, instead of just chips.  So I melted the chips down, and stirred it into the batter.  Brilliant!  I am seeing this technique working out well with other recipes too.

I don't even know what a Pterodactyl is? Maybe I need to go back to school. I don't know when my shoe size was the same as my mom's but it lasted only about 6 months. I was always jealous of friends who could share shoes with their moms. I suppose your son has now yearnings to share your shoes.
