Butterfinger Bars

Hello to everyone!
Hope you are soaking up the sun like we are. I am finding it harder to even get the time to get on the computer because it's just too nice to be inside.
I've been able to hang my laundry outside to dry the past few days, the furnace is turned off and a few windows are open. I love this weather. It's not too hot nor too cold.
Just perfect! We've even dusted our bicycles off and began riding the trail this week.
I think we are all a little rusty from the long winter but it won't take much to get us back into the spring of things.

Before I show the recipe I'm going to show you a glimpse of what I am working on today.
It's a first for me so I'm not sure how it will turn out but I'm going to give it a try.
Can you guess what it is?

It's hopefully going to be a prim Annie doll!
I'll have to show you a picture of it when I get it finished. I just hope it turns out.

Okay, now to the Butterfinger recipe.
This is sooooo good and it's super easy to make.

Butterfinger Bar

2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
18 oz. peanut butter
1 bag of chocolate chips
3 cups corn flakes

Heat sugar and syrup until boiling.
Add peanut butter and mix well.
Pour over cereal and stir together.
Press into a greased 9x13 pan.
Melt chocolate chips and spread over the top.
Chill in the refrigerator for 20-25 minutes.
Cut into squares.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Corn flakes are really good for people to eat, so I want to try this recipe!

I think your Annie doll will turn out well! Just a feeling...the nose is already lookin' so cute!

Good luck with your doll! And the butter finger bars look delish! Hey, thought I'd let you know that I homeschooled my son as well. It was the best thing experience. :)

Good luck on your doll.
