I visited with Richella at Imparting Grace this morning. She had made a sweet treat without firing up the oven. I thought I would share a couple of recipes this morning. The first one is my fondest memory of the lunchroom at school and if I might add my grandmother was a lunchroom lady. Just wish I could remember if she gave me seconds on these or not. She probably did, since I love them so well!
2 cups of Sugar
1/3 cup of Cocoa
1/2 cup of Milk
1 stick of unsalted butter
Place in boiler on medium heat. Stir constantly and bring to rolling boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and add:
1 cup of peanut butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1-1/2 cups of oatmeal
Drop onto foil. Enjoy and don't eat too many!
On the lighter, healthier, and refreshing side......
1 (15oz.) can or large can of crushed pineapple drained (leave a little juice in it)
1 small pkg. sugar-free french vanilla or plain vanilla instant pudding
1 16oz. carton of Fat-free vanilla yogurt (I use Stonyfield French Vanilla)
1 8 oz. lite cool whip.
Mix pineapple with pudding, add yogurt and fold in Cool Whip. Let set in refrigerator a couple of hours before serving.
I hope you will try the Pineapple Fluff it is a life-saver when you are counting calories, fat grams, points, or whatever. :)
