Better Than a Doughnut: Apples & Peanut Butter



Ingredients:
1 bag light blue chocolate melts (found in the baking aisle of most craft stores)
1 – 10.5 ounce bag large marshmallows
1 box graham cracker crumbs (I used Keebler brand)
1 – 6.6 ounce bag cheddar goldfish
Large white pearl nonpareils
20 lollipop sticks
Instructions:
Melt blue chocolate melts according to package. I recommend placing chocolate in a microwavable bowl and melting in 30 second increments, mixing in between. Do not over-melt or the chocolate will be difficult to work with.
Place lollipop sticks in marshmallows. Dip marshmallows into the chocolate. Tip: Tap excess chocolate off the marshmallow before proceeding to the next step.
Before the chocolate dries, dip the bottom in graham cracker crumbs. Add a goldfish and 2 white pearl non pareils.
Allow to dry and then enjoy! If you are making this a day in advance, make sure to place your pops in an air tight container or cover with saran wrap so they don’t go stale.
Makes approximately 20 pops :)

Ingredients:
1/4 cup steel cut oats
3/4 cup water or milk
2 eggs, beaten and 
2 Tbsp shredded cheese
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1/8 cup onion, diced
Directions
Lightly spray medium sauce pan with olive oil and sauté onions and garlic, over medium heat, until just translucent.  You need to stir constantly so the garlic won’t burn.
Add the water or milk and the oats, turn heat to high, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. 
Once boil is achieved, turn down the heat to low and simmer for five minutes, stirring occasionally. 
Temper the egg by adding a spoonful of the hot oatmeal to the beaten eggs and stirring thoroughly.  Now do this again with a second spoonful of oatmeal into the eggs.  This brings the eggs to the temperature of the oats, ensuring that there won’t be any big pieces of egg in your finished product. 
Slowly add the eggs back into the sauce pan with the oatmeal, stirring well to incorporate. 
Return heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until eggs are cooked through, about four minutes. 
Stir in half of shredded cheese. 
Top with a few grinds of fresh black pepper and the remaining tablespoon of shredded cheese.
