Today I've posted two recipes - both involving chocolate. (one) Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins & (two) Indoor S'mores. Both recipes are great, but if you make indoor s'mores - invite some friends over, take some to work, cut the recipe in half, hide them somewhere so good that even you may forget where they are hidden. Do whatever you need to do and don't say I didn't warn you. I did none of the above and yt and I ate the entire 9 x 13 pan over the course of several days. Dangerous stuff.
But first.. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins.
What you'll need...
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
What to do...
Preheat oven to 400 degress. Combine first 5 ingredients. Sift together dry ingredients and add to wet. Mix lightly. Turn into greased or lined muffin tin and bake 25 minutes.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip: Add 1 cup chocolate chips to above
Oatmeal Apple: Add 1 cup shredded apple to above
Oatmeal Banana: Add 1 pureed banana to above
And now for the crack indoor s'mores I was referring to above.
2/3 cup light corn syrup
2 tbsp butter
11 1/2 oz Nestle milk chocolate
1 tsp vanilla
10 oz Golden Grahams cereal (about 8 cups)
3 cups miniature marshmallows
What to do...
Grease a 9x13 pan. Heat corn syrup, butter and chocolate to boiling in 3 quart saucepan, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal in large mixing bowl; toss quickly until completely coated with chocolate. Fold in marshmallows, 1 cup at a time. Press mixture evenly in pan with piece of waxed paper. Let stand until firm, at least one hour. The recipe says "makes 48 squares." In my case, "makes one large square to be eaten over the course of a week."
