- 14 ounces sweetened shredded coconut
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 extra-large egg whites, at room temperature
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine the coconut, condensed milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whip the egg whites and salt on high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until they make medium-firm peaks. Carefully fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.
Drop the batter onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper (DO NOT USE WAX PAPER! I tried. It doesn't work - trust me!) using either a 1 3/4-inch diameter ice cream scoop, or 2 teaspoons. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool for a couple minutes then remove to wire rack. Dip in melted chocolate (put in fridge to harden for a little bit) and serve.

So I went onto Etsy and found some old chandelier crystals.... went to Michaels and got some beading wire... and came up with this:
So for under $20 I got my light fixture girlie-d up and I can easily take it with me whenever we happen to move out of our place!

Chewy Granola Bars
9 cups Rice Chex (or Crispix), crushed
6 cups quick oatmeal
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup wheat germ (I used sunflower seeds)
16oz & 10oz bags or 15 cups marshmallows
1 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
1 1/2 cups M&Ms, chocolate chips or raisins (or mix and match!)
Mix all dry ingredients (except the last ingred.) in a very large bowl. Melt marshmallows and butter in a saucepan. Stir the whole time. When melted, remove from stove and add honey. Pour over mixture. Mix well. Mix in your choice of yummys... Press into a buttered 11x15 jellyroll pan. Let harden then cut into squares. Enjoy!
To make it easier when on a trip, I wrapped each square individually!

(the crackled look was an accident - it was too humid when I spray painted but I was impatient!
I really like how it turned out though!)

I just make it up, but it was DE-LISH!!!
Here are the ingredients I used:
* Cooked Chicken
* Mozzarella Cheese
* Parmesan Cheese
* Fresh Blueberries!
And if I had room left in the bowls and hadn't forgotten.... I would have added diced, hard-boiled eggs and black olives! Yummy!!!! But it was yummy as it was! (that is with Ranch on top to complete it!)
