My youngest niece, adorable as she is, is fairly ambivalent to food most of the time. She will always eat what you give her-she isn't picky-, but she doesn't eat much, and she doesn't really have any preferences. Holy hard for me--How can I show her my love? :)
She is coming this weekend with her brother and sister to spend a day with us, something I am really looking forward too--lots of fun!
I try to ensure that I have something for lunch and dinner that will be special for each of the kids. I know what my oldest niece loves--pulled pork -- and try to make it for her often. My little man loves to eat anything you give him--he is so easy to please! But my little R, she is a tough nut to crack--she is even uncommitted to choosing dessert!
That is until I discovered this little gem...I think she ate half the pan the last time I made them--I have NEVER seen her eat anything like she ate these--it was hilarious!
So, you can try these for your tough nut--it will make their tummies smile I am sure!
Little R's Peanut Butter Squares
1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, your choice, both are good)
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Mix all ( except chocolate chips) together with a spatula until well combined. Flatten into a 9x9 square pan and sprinkle chips over evenly. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 min. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes. Using a spatula spread the chocolate chips evenly over pan--let cool completely before you cut into squares.
