Foodie Friday

If you grew up with me in any of the many magnolia drenched cities my family lived in along Dixie, then you will agree my Mother is arguably one of the best cooks ever.
Not just in the South, but in the world! We were blessed that she was home when we came in from school and a fabulous snack was waiting and dinner was started!
I often wondered if some of my gentlemen friends were actually there for me, or Mother's food. One of my best guy friends used to tell her,
"Mrs. Debbie, you're the only Mom I know that actually cooks in pearls and high heels everyday"
Explains a lot .... I know!
She was famous for her homemade candies and most of my childhood friends remember them well.
Recently, I have been asked for this recipe by more than one of my friends from bygone eras.
So, for my first Foodie Friday post, here is is:

White Delight

2 1/4 lb Almond bark (white chocolate)
1 Large jar dry roasted peanuts
2cups mini marshmallows
2cups rice krispies
2 cups Captain Crunch Peanut Butter Cereal

Mix all ingredients EXCEPT chocolate, set aside. Then melt the chocolate (use your preferred method for this. Mine is the stove, but some prefer the microwave) In a large bowl, add chocolate and then add cereal mixture a little at a time stirring well. It is important to work quickly as it cools very fast! Then drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Let cool and enjoy!

Sorry I didn't have a picture of it!

Now, don't forget to read the post below this one for a really fun contest!

Thank you so much for sharing this special recipe with us. When my mother was living, she specialized in sweets, and they were so good. So I know how treasured recipes can be. You were sweet to share this one with us. Can't wait to try it!

Happy Foodie Friday!

I'm so thrilled that you joined the potluck today. Your recipe is a keeper. I had a mom just like yours--always something bubbling on the stove, and after-school snacks waiting on the table. Come back and see me!

Yum -o! I may have to make this for TJ's next presentation meeting - it sounds a lot easier than popcorn balls! Thanks again for your help this weekend; it's great to have a "go-to" friend in times of crisis!

This sounds wonderful and easy to boot! I'm looking for good "sweets" recipes for a recital reception and this is definitely going on the list. Thanks for sharing. Kathy

Happy Foodie Friday! That sounds wonderful! I wish I can try it, my son's allergic to peanuts. But I certainly will enjoy imagining eating one! Thanks!
