peanut butter cup granola bars

Well, we survived another Halloween, and
…there is entirely TOO  much candy in the house.

Our day went something like this…
get up for school
make sure that costumes are ready
stop and get extra candy
{I’d hate to be that house}
pick kids up
find out that I have a few extras coming over

5:00
friends go home
shower
costumes
quick facetime with Grandma and Grandpa
friends arrive to trick-or treat
put candy in bowl
put bowl on table
move table near the front steps so that is is easily visible to all the kiddos
light pumpkins
finally, trick-or- treating
dinner with friends

9:00
We are making our way home
exhausted
sugared up

We arrive home,
and much to my dismay
find out that I never bothered to turn on the outside lights.
you know, the special Halloween lights
that let all the kids know
that we are READY with CANDY

SO, now we have WAY TOO MUCH CANDY

and I made granola bars to use some of it up

Peanut Butter Cup no-bake Granola bars:
2 cups of oats
1/4 cup of butter
1/4 cup of agave
1/4 cup of brown sugar

about 10 mini Hershey bars and
10 Reese’s peanut butter cups

line a square baking dish with parchment or foil
chop up the peanut butter cups and spread them on the bottom of the pan

in a saucepan
combine the butter, agave, and sugar
melt, stirring until the sugar dissolves
pour this over the oats
combine well

press the oats in an even layer over the PB cups

melt the chocolate bars
spread the chocolate on the oats

let cool
{I put them in the fridge before cutting}

cut into bars

Enjoy!

I think next year I may join Ian for his “convention” in Las Vegas:)
