I was thinking about this quote while I stalk all these beautiful blogs!

I must remember that bloggers only put their most beautiful foot forward and have the ability to create a make believe world full of pretty pictures, happy family snaps and gorgeous homes.

It is true, I know it because I am guilty of it!

I only put the pretty pictures up and the ones that make me feel like escaping to. I create a blog that looks amazing to the outside world!

The fact is my life is far from that at times and I bet that most bloggers would agree. (if we are honest!)

I yell at the kids and have washing piled up on beds in baskets! I give my kids lunch orders when I can't be bothered in the morning, I have a dirty toilet ( I have boys..they are messy) and I sit on my bottom and night and struggle with the guilt of not getting up and doing something constructive!

In all the time spent blogging and looking at other bloggers pages, remember to be thankful for the things you have and don't spend your time wishing for something else!!!

fruit loop treats

So I've been stealing recipes left right and centre this week!! I'm not sure if I'm on a sugar hit / high but I seem to be focused on sweet treats! I was blog stalking as usual and Harry my eldest loves to sit on my lap and watch the pictures as they fly by.

Harry yelled " Stop !! that looks awesome!!!" so I decided to post it. The trouble is I totally forgot where I got this from!! I'm soooo sorry to the amazing person who did this awesome post!

Lunch  box treats will be good this week!!!!


They take 5 minutes to make, in your microwave (or you can use a saucepan on the stove).

NOTE: I doubled the recipe to fill one large jelly roll pan (cookie sheet).


1/4 cup butter (1/2 a cube)
1 package small marshmallow (or about 6 cups)
8 cups of cereal
 Microwave the marshmallows and butter in a large bowl for 2 minutes till melted and stir it up.  Some of the butter may not mix-in all the way.  No worries.
• Pour in the cereal and mix
• Spread it on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray or butter.  Spray a little on your hands to help spread it around without getting sticky goo all over you.
• Refrigerate till ready to serve

Move over Caramel Slice!!!

ok ok I haven't posted but I felt compelled to post after I had so many requests for a recipe of a slice I posted on Instagram.

It is my new challenge. I want to make it and make it look like this

Can it get any better than this?

OK so I stole the recipe from Some Girls Recipes.
So here you are my friends. I'd love to know if you made it and how it turned out! Drop me a little comment!!!

Makes one 9×13 pan 

 Choc Caramel Nougat Slice

Bottom Chocolate Layer 1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter

Line your pan with aluminum foil and leave an overhang. Thoroughly grease foil. Melt ingredients together in the microwave for 30 seconds and then 10 second intervals until completely melted, careful not to burn. Pour into the baking dish and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.
Nougat Layer 1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups marshmallow fluff
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup salted peanuts chopped, roughly chopped
1 tsp vanilla extract

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add in sugar and milk, stirring until dissolved and bring to a boil. Let cook for 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Add in fluff, peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Turn off heat and fold in peanuts, then pour over bottom chocolate layer. Let cool completely.
Caramel layer 1 14-ounce bag of caramels
1/4 cup whipping cream

Combine ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Let melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth – this took about 10 minutes for me. Pour over nougat layer and let cool completely.
Top Chocolate Layer 1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter

Melt ingredients together in microwave, then pour over caramel and spread until even. Let cool and harden completely.

Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving, then cut as desired. These can stay at room temperature, but they do get gooey. I like them refrigerated best!
