Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars

Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars
After last weekend, I had a ton of Oreos to use up. I should mentioned that this was after I baked a second batch of those Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Oops. I might have bought two packages. Oops again. This may come as a surprise: I don’t really like to eat just plain Oreos. I’ve already made cupcakes and brownies, but I couldn’t get a crunchy cookies and cream bar out of my mind. It’s like the better-than-crack brownies and a bag of Oreos had a love child. With Mr. The pictures say it all – these brownies are rich and chocolaty. If you are one of those crazy people who doesn’t love sugary sweet, so-good-your-teeth-hurt desserts, then these probably aren’t for you.

How To Make Pom Poms and Add Them to a Throw Blanket Before I started moving my studioffice all around last week, I started making something to keep me warm as it is COLD!!! outside and I like it warm. This past weekend it snowed, which made for a nice snow day on Saturday, but the throw blanket I keep in my living room to snuggle up with has not been available for about 2 months now. I needed to finish up embellishing a new throw I bought at Marshall’s to keep me all comfy cozy. This project all started when a certain new member of my household took over my warm and snuggly leopard throw. Sometimes I don’t even see her as she blends right in. I got my inspiration to make the pom pom trim when I saw this photo in an old Woman’s Day magazine from the late 60’s that I found at a thrift store. From woman’s Day Magazine Jan 1968 How to Make a Pom Pom Throw Blanket This was a very easy project that I did while I watched a movie on TV.
