So . . . all of you moms who's kids do go to school . . . are you ready and waiting with homemade snacks every afternoon? Just wondering . . .
Anyway . . . this past week, Hosanna's schedule changed just a bit. Rather than having Play Practice at 3:00 every afternoon, it was pushed back until 4:00. So, the high schoolers got out of school at 2:15, and then had almost 2 hours before they had to arrive at the Middle School Auditorium for Play Practice.
We happen to live just a mile from the Middle School, while several of Hosanna's closest friends live "out in the county", further from the schools. On Monday, Hosanna asked if she could have a few friends over between school and play practice. "Of course," I said, "maybe I'll bake you some After School Snacks."
Tuesday, I pulled out a cookbook and thought I would try something new. I found a recipe for Chocolate Raspberry Crumb Bars. It looked good, but I knew immediately that I would need to make a little change: White Chocolate is always in order with Raspberries.
A few days before, Ben had nonchalantly commented, "Mom, it's sure been a long time since you've made Cappuccino Brownies." (hint, hint) So, I decided to whip up a batch of Cappuccino Brownies with Cappuccino Frosting (a long time Family Favorite) for the girls' After School Snack. I knew that the Young Ones would love to have some, as well, and I would set some aside for Ben, too. I actually sent Ben a text picture, inviting him over for dinner and dessert. He already had plans for the evening, but I promised to save him some.
