Triple Hit Brownies
1 boxed brownie mix (9x13 size)
and all the ingredients to whip that up... I use the extra egg version, but that is me, I like a more cake-y brownie.
Follow the directions on the box and bake the brownie mix up in a 9x 13. About 2 minutes before it is finished cover the brownies with a bag (10.5 ounce) of mini marshmallows. Return to the oven for those last few minutes. Allow to cool completely.
After your brownies are cool mix the following ingredients over low heat:
1 and 1/3 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
When the mixture is smooth remove from the heat and stir in 2 cups crisped rice cereal. Spread or glop the mixture over the marshmallow layer. Allow to set. (I put mine in the fridge.) Cut only after the bars are cold or you will have a mess on your hands. A delicious mess, but a mess!
Go ahead. Say it. Goddess. Goddess. Goddess!

Who do we appreciate?
Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Your child's teacher will feel so appreciated if you remember him or her in a special way.
I usually treat my boys' teachers (and assistants) to a special homemade treat. They tell me what to bake and I bake it and deliver it.
This year I am also helping the PTO at A and D's school come up with some ideas to brighten each day. For instance we might give out little snack bags of chips with a note attached that reads, "You're all that and a bag of chips." Another idea might be to wrap up a can of soup with a note that says, "Thanks for being soup-er!"
The teachers will also enjoy one breakfast and one lunch, courtesy of the PTO. Plus we'll have giveaways. I'd also like to see us put out a banner in the cafeteria so the kids can do a little teacher appreciation graffiti.
Any teacher would love a note of heart-felt appreciation.
Thanking a teacher works for me. Find out what works for other bloggers over at Shannon's blog, Rocks in My Dryer!

I just entered a contest over at Table for Five. The winner receives a year's supply of Reddi-wip and Ben and Jerry's. Mmmm. Whipped cream and ice cream. Gotta have something to enjoy while wearing my flip flops!
You have until April 29th to get over there and enter for yourself!
