Magically Delicious!

On this Father’s Day, the BOY and I are so lucky to spend the day with our families and honor our fathers!  Since I had my morning triathlon, the BOY and I decided to invite everyone over for a BBQ.  Since then, we are adding the engagement of my brother to his amazing girlfriend and the BOY’s first EVER straight A semester to our list of reasons to celebrate.

Everyone brought some food to the BBQ and the BOY, as always, was in charge of meat.  For dessert, my Mom brought an apple pie and I whipped up an easy no bake treat!

This morning’s race went well (I will have a race recap coming soon), and we were all happy to spend some time outside in the sunshine enjoying a fantastic meal afterwards.

When it came time for dessert, we were all happy to be back around the table.

  1. OMG DROOL. I just made a vow to myself to stop eating junk food. I do however see these being made in the future, a small batch, that I will share with lots of friends. I recently saw that lucky charms was on the top ten worst cereals to eat but I don’t believe it, THEY ARE PERFECT.

    • Oh no! I would believe they are bad but I never would have thought THAT bad. I mean, have you seen the Reece’s puffs?! These are good portion control because they are cut into squares and great idea to have friends to share them with. They always disappear quickly!

  2. lucky charms bars?! Such a great idea : -) My favorite childhood cereals were rice krispy treats (with the clusters), alpha-bits, apple jacks…and many more. LOL. I had a cereal obsession!

    • I think as an adult I would still eat most kid cereals, but I like them dry as a snack. Random! Rice Krispy treats cereal was da bomb for sure! I remember when it came out! You could totally do this with alpha bits and PB. My friend did that and they were sooo good!

  3. […] I don’t spend much time in the cereal aisle, but there are a lot of tasty options!  I decided on the multigrain Cheerios but almost went with the dark chocolate version.  I also saw this amazing green box of Lucky Charms, which would be awesome for St. Patty’s Day Lucky Charms Bars. […]
