These recipes/photos are not mine. They are recipes/photos that have been shared on facebook. My problem has been that even though I have shared them on fb, I always have a hard time finding them (cuz I share too many!!). :) Since you can't "search" on facebook, I made this blog that can be searched to find them more easily. They are open to public sharing on facebook.

vending machine? Here's a recipe to make your own just the way you like

PROTEIN BAR RECIPE
The perfect mid-afternoon snack with a glass of water and a money saver!
Total Time: 20 mins Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 15 mins
1/2 cup skim milk 1 cup natural-style peanut butter or 1 cup low-fat peanut butter 1 tablespoon honey 1 1/4-1 1/2 cups of whey protein powder (I use vanilla, but I'm sure chocolate would work too) 2 cups dry uncooked oatmeal (not quick cooking kind)
1. Combine PB, honey and milk in a pot. 2. Warm over low heat. 3. Add the protein powder and mix well. 4. Add the oats. 5. You don't want to cook it, just warm it through so you can stir it. 6. Add more milk if it is too thick to stir. 7. Press in a 9" x 13" pan. 8. Let the bars sit until cool, and cut into 16 equal sized bars. 9. Wrap each bar in foil or Saran wrap and store in plastic baggies. 10. They do not need refrigeration.
Variations: Add more honey if want it sweeter. Can also add sunflower
seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, cinnamon, blanched peanuts ---> Make
it your own!

1 cup salted butter (melted) 2 cups graham cracker crumbs 1/4 cup brown sugar1 3/4 cup powdered sugar 1 cup peanut butter 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 (11 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips in a medium sized bowl. Stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour peanut butter mixture into a 9x13 pan. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Stir chocolate and pour over the peanut butter mixture. Spread chocolate with a spatula. Refrigerate bars for one hour. Cut while bars are still cool.
Sift the following into an ungreased 9x13 cake pan that you will bake cake in.
3 cups flour 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp salt 2 cups sugar 1/4 cup cocoa
¾ cup cooking oil 1 tsp vanilla 2 Tbsp vinegar 2 cups cold water
Mix with fork. Do Not Beat!!! Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and frost (see below) or dust with powdered sugar and serve. Garnish with chocolate chips, optional.
½ cup butter 2 finger pinch of salt 1 lb. confectioners sugar 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 cup milk or so For chocolate frosting add 3 Tbsps cocoa
Cream butter until soft. Add salt. Blend in 4 ½ cups confectioners sugar and cocoa if using. Blend in vanilla. Add remaining sugar alternately with about milk, beating until smooth. Makes 1 ¾ cups frosting.
Mint Frosting: 3/4 C. butter, softened 1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract 2-3 C. powdered sugar milk, if needed green food dye, if desired
Chocolate Glaze: 1 1/2 C. chocolate chips 3 Tbsp. butter Andes Mint Candies, roughly chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. 2. Combine cake mix, eggs, butter (make sure you let it cool a little so it doesn't cook the eggs), vanilla and sugar. That batter will be still. 3. Make dough balls a little large than a Tablespoon and place on cookie sheets to bake. (You make one to pat each dough ball down a little bit because cake mix cookies tend to bake up tall.) 4. Bake for 7-9 minutes and let cool on cooling racks. 5. Mint Frosting: Beat butter for 2 minutes. Add peppermint extract and slowly add it powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Add 1-2 Tablespoons milk if it gets too thick. Add green dye for color if desired. 6. Chocolate Glaze: Melt chocolate chips and butter together in a microwave proof bowl. Zap for about 30 seconds, then stir, then microwave in 10 second increments and stir until smooth. 7. To assemble (see photos). Pipe on frosting, smooth over with a knife, spoon on your glaze and top with peppermint candies.
1 can (8ct.) Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits Cubed Mozzarella Cheese (1-1″ cube per Bomb) 2 lbs. of Bacon (1 slice per Bomb) Sticks Oil for frying (I used Canola)
Directions: Cube up the Cheese, and cut each Biscuit into fourths. Place one piece of Cheese inside a Biscuit quarter, and roll it up in there, nice and tight… Wrap each rolled Bomb in a slice of Bacon, and secure it with a skewer or toothpick… In a med/large pot, heat up approx. 2″ of Oil (to 350 degrees) and fry them up in small batches. Maybe one or two at a time, the oil will expand so stay close… Drain them on some Paper Towel, but serve them up good and warm. YUM!!
