Pigeon Poop!

This is one of our "bird theme" snacks, Pigeon Poop!
4 cups peanut butter crunch cereal
3 cups rice krispies
2 cups pretzel sticks broken in 1/2
2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 bags white chocolate chips
Mix all dry ingredients in large bowl and melt white chocolate chips in microwave and cover and mix, then lay on wax paper until cooled. Break into pieces.

The kids loved making this! It's so fun to say too!!

Peanut Butter Pie!

Did you know that "Happy Birthday" has 13 letters in it?
It does.
(which is perfect for your newly donned teen)

Just like his father, Jedi loves pie instead of cake.
Peanut Butter Pie to be exact.

Peanut Butter Pie

25 Oreo cookies, crushed to a fine crumb
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter

1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter (I use Jif  and eyeball it)
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla 
Small container of Cool Whip
(because it's easier)

Press crust ingredients into a 9 inch pie plate. Bake 375 degrees for 10 minutes
Let cool.
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth.
Fold in Cool Whip.  Spoon into crust, garnish with cookie crumbs if you want to.
Refrigerate or freeze
(we freeze it and take it out for like 15 minutes before cutting)

If you have a big family like we do, you will make 2 of these pies
and if you do that, well,  you might not measure those cookies!
