New Year's Eve Goodies

Happy New Year!! Here are some of our favorite goodies to munch on while playing games and welcoming in the New Year:

New Year's Slush
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 1 can cut grapefruit sections, drained and put through the blender
  • Sprite
Boil sugar and water together till dissolved and cool. Add pineapple and grapefruit to syrup and freeze in an 8x8 pan. Cut in chunks, put in glasses and pour Sprite over the slush.

Chex Muddy Buddies
  • 9 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
  • 1/2 bag (6 ounces) chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Measure cereal into a large bowl and set aside. Microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a microwavable bowl uncovered for 1 minute; stir. Microwave 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into large plastic food-storage bag; add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. 

Enjoy, and Happy New Year!
