I'm Back in the Kitchen - for a Review and Giveaway!!!

As you know from my previous culinary exploits, I can be quite dangerous in the kitchen, but the one thing that tempts me to go back in there is the promise of chocolately marshmallow delight - with easy to prepare convenience...


Even MB (who is on a diet) and VC could not resist digging into Betty Crocker's Mississippi Mud Bars. The bars are the perfect combination of chocolate cookie crumbs sprinkled over gooey marshmallows in a chewy chocolate center and a crunchy chocolate cookie crust. They are set to arrive in stores this summer!

I'd love to say that the baking went off without a hitch, but then would you really have expected that??? I wish I could make this stuff up. I really do.

Here's what happened: I mixed up the bars and the topping spread it in the pan and had it in the oven for ten minutes, at which time MB and I were talking and I kept hearing the microwave beep. What was in the microwave??? We had already eaten dinner hours earlier? My eyes popped open and I did a gasp when I opened it and realized what was in the microwave. Why it was the melted butter that was supposed to be mixed in with the batter!!!!!!

Let's just say, my mud bars (pictured at the top of this post) came out extra extra low calorie. And you know what?? They still tasted fabulous! VC commented that I should make them without the added butter the next time too :D

Would you like to win a "Delicious Dessert" prize pack that includes a box of the new Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars and an 8x8 metal baking pan? If mine came out this good even with the mishap, imagine how splendid your's will be!!!

My upcoming event would be dinner this Wednesday night. I'll be the only one home so I would get these all to myself! :p

Okay, maybe I would save 1 for hubby.
Maybe.

alessandra said...

Oh my! all that "crunch and gooey and chewy", sounds delish!

Kristin said...

Mmmmmm. Those look good. I've made their cookies before but never those bars!

buffalodick said...

I will sign up as a follower, all that other stuff is a lot of work for free brownies and a pan!

M-Cat said...

Those looks SO good! I would totally have my son make them and it would be our Sunday night brownie treat!

These would be the perfect food for a grilling birthday that my sister usually wants for her birthday which is the 4th of July.

Why, our end-of-school yearbookie party, of course! What teenager would pass up a chance to consume mass quantities of Mississippi Mud Bars, correctamundo?

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

They look yummy. I'd take them to my nephew's birthday party.

I follow you on GFC.

Aunt Juicebox said...

Um, can't I just make them and eat them, without having to share?? But if I were going to share them, I'd make them for band. We have a day every month to celebrate all the birthdays that happen that month and we bring treats.

Heather said...

Yum! 4th of July would be a great time!

Heather said...

I subscribe to your blog. =)

Heather said...

And on GFC too. Thanks!

MMMM, the special event I would use these for is "mac hogs all the sweets day"!

Nah, I'll let someone else taste one.

Where the Fur Flies said...

Would it be wrong if the event was me, in my flannel pj's, sitting alone and packing away the Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars?

Janna Bee said...

The event is Monday Morning wakeup! I would be so much happier with these (I would make them low fat, too!)
