350. chex mix.


In preperation for my crafternoon (post coming!) I made some chex mix for my friends to nibble on while we made christmas ornaments. I have never made chex mix before – mostly because I’m afraid I’ll eat it ALL in one sitting. I LOVE chex mix. LOVE.

6 cups crispix cereal
3 T earth balance
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ teaspoons seasoning salt
¾ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup pretzels

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Melt earth balance in large roasting pan in oven. Stir in seasonings and make sure the butter mixture is spread evenly over the bottom of the pan. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients until evenly coated. Bake 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in an airtight container.

27. bath bombs and body scrub.

My friend krissy had a wine, cheese and spa night at her place tonight. A bunch of us girls sat around and got caught up with eachother, ate treats and made fun bath treats. The pumpkin donut holes I posted about yesterday were a huge success!

First up: bath bombs.

In one big bowl, mix
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup epsom salt

In a seperate small bowl, mix together
3/4 tspn water
essential oil (about 2 tspn)
food coloring
2 T oil (we ended up adding quite a bit more b/c we were having trouble getting the bomb to stick together and come out of the mold)

Wisk in the wet ingredients into the dry. Shape into a ball or mold (we used little hearts) and put on parchment paper to dry.

They were dry and ready to take home by the end of the night.

next up:  brown sugar body scrub.
This was TOO easy!

wisk together
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2-3 Tablespoon brown sugar
scented oil or a little bit of fresh lemon juice

Stir it together with a wisk until its nice and gritty.
