If you've had your fill of treats already, you'll want to bookmark this one for later! Last night I made these bars from Betty Crocker and they are delicious! It's one of those recipes that you secretly hope your kids won't like so you'll be forced to eat them all yourself, you know, so they don't go to waste, but maybe only I do that.
I don't know how fattening they are 'cause quite honestly, I don't want to know. Obviously, I've made no New Years resolutions yet to eat healthier. Besides they have apples in them and apples are in the fruit group. Yes...I can justify it.
The recipe calls for an oatmeal cookie mix and a stick of butter for the streusel topping and crust. The center layers are apple pie filling and a cream cheese filling, mmm. Like I said...not looking at the calories. I think that they even taste good both warm and cold, another plus if you don't want to wait for them to chill.
If you haven't tried these before and want to make them you can
(By the way 2 out of 4 of my kids didn't want to try them...
finally their pickiness is working with me and not against me!)
A confession: I just got curious and peeked at the calories...still don't care. :)
Well, they are currently on sale at Wal-mart for 50% off. So you can buy 5 boxes for $1.50! They come in several different sizes. The size for the s'more kit box is 8.25" x 7" x 3.5". If your Wal-mart has them, they should be in the seasonal Christmas section by the wrapping paper and gift sacks.
I grabbed some today to use throughout the year. I have plans for them. Don't you think they would be so cute for Valentine's day with a heart window in the top of the box and cookies inside? Really, you could cut out a shape for any holiday...an egg for Easter, a star for the 4th of July, a ghost or pumpkin for Halloween. I imagine them with a bright ribbon, a cute tag, and colored fill inside. Anyway, I thought that I'd pass on the deal in case you are thinking of making s'more kits this summer or next year for gifts and want to save some money on the boxes. Where they are sold in the seasonal section, you may not be able to find them later. Wouldn't you know that now I'm regretting that I didn't pick up more of them. :)

Choose your favorite color: This image can be printed onto any paper of your choice. You can choose a patterned scrapbook paper or whatever you like. Lighter colors will work best. (The color of the paper will fill in the boxes when you print it.) If you aren't trying to save ink and just want a different background color, in a document, create a rectangle the size of the print, fill it with whatever color you like, and then move the subway art print over the top of it and print.
I'm happy to share this January Subway Art with you and hope that you will enjoy it in your home or wherever you choose to display it. If you post about how you've used this print, please leave me a link, I'd love to come check it out!
