Night Owl S'mores Treat

I found this recipe here at Real Mom Kitchen. We really enjoyed these.

The recipe says that these need to be made and eaten in the same day so that the cereal doesn't get soggy. We love dessert around here, but we don't eat a lot at one sitting(well...maybe I do, but we try not to let the kids). I didn't want to waste what we didn't eat, so I put the extra pieces in the freezer and we snacked on this all week long.

Night Owl S'mores Treat

9 cups honey graham cereal (like Golden Grahams)
3/4 cup corn syrup
3 T butter
11-1/2 ounce package milk chocolate chips
1 t vanilla
3 cups mini marshmallows

Directions: Grease a cookie sheet butter. Measure 9 cups of honey graham cereal in a large mixing bowl. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine corn syrup, butter and milk chocolate chips. Stir constantly until chocolate chips are melted and ingredients are combined. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal and stir quickly until cereal is coated with chocolate. Stir in the marshmallows. Pour mixture onto cookie sheet and using a slightly damp hand, press into pan.

This recipe needs to be made and eaten the same day. Otherwise the cereal gets soggy the next day.

Blackberry Cobbler Waffles

We LOVE breakfast food for dinner at my house!! This is really more like dessert! I did make some super healthy fruit shakes to go with I think it all works itself out.

I found this recipe over at How Sweet It Is. I LOVE Jessica's blog. Seriously the yummiest recipes, best pictures and funniest posts you will ever see!!

Blackberry Cobbler Waffles

Serves 4


1 1/2 cups flour

1/3 cups rolled oats

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/3 cup milk

1/4 cup butter, melted

2 pints fresh blackberries

vanilla ice cream + maple syrup for serving (I used buttermilk syrup)

Directions: Preheat your waffle iron and spray it with non-stick spray (I always spray again between each waffle.)

In a bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Stir in eggs, milk, vanilla and butter, mixing until combined and smooth. Fold in about 1 cup of black berries. Make waffles per your iron's directions.

Heat the remaining blackberries in a saucepan over low heat and mash with a fork until saucy. Serve waffles with warm mashed berries, syrup and vanilla ice cream.
