Sweets For My Sweets

I’ve become a mom who makes treats for her family. There I said it. There are two reasons why this new activity is strange to me. One: baking seems too domestic. If I’m not careful I’ll be putting on a nice dress and apron much like June Clever. Two: having all this ‘treat – comfort food’ equals extra lbs, boooo! Of course there really isn’t anything wrong with making your family sweet things they enjoy and it’s just proof I do enjoy my role as a SAHM. So instead of denying that I’ve turned into TV the Homemaker, I’ll share an old simple ‘treat’ recipe my Mom used to make for me and my siblings.

Carmel Bars
1 c brown sugar
1 c butter
Boil for 1 minute
Pour butter/sugar mixture over arranged graham crackers (3/4 of pack) on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 5 minutes or until the center starts to bubble. Let pan cool (place in refrigerator to expedite).
Slowly melt large chocolate Hersey bar. Once melted, pour over graham cracker mixture. Cool again, cut and serve.

Got any good childhood recipes to share?

  4. It is so nice to bake and make things with the family. Little Chick and I bake all the time. Yes, there are extra pounds involved, but the homey smell and the ymmy outcome is well worth it. I am sure these are comforting things our children will remember when they get older.
