Tough Nut

My youngest niece, adorable as she is, is fairly ambivalent to food most of the time.  She will always eat what you give her-she isn’t picky-, but she doesn’t eat much, and she doesn’t really have any preferences. Holy hard for me–How can I show her my love? 🙂

She is coming this weekend with her brother and sister to spend a day with us,  something I am really looking forward too–lots of fun!

I try to ensure that I have something for lunch and dinner that will be special for each of the kids.  I know what my oldest niece loves–pulled pork — and try to make it for her often.  My little man loves to eat anything you give him–he is so easy to please!  But my little R, she is a tough nut to crack–she is even  uncommitted to choosing dessert!

That is until I discovered this little gem…I think she ate half the pan the last time I made them–I have NEVER seen her eat anything like she ate these–it was hilarious!

So, you can try these for your tough nut–it will make their tummies smile I am sure!

Little R’s Peanut Butter Squares
1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, your choice, both are good)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg.
1 cup chocolate chips 

Mix all ( except chocolate chips) together with a spatula until well combined.  Flatten into a 9×9 square pan and sprinkle chips over evenly.  Bake at 325 degrees for 20 min.  Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes.  Using a spatula spread the chocolate chips evenly over pan–let cool completely before you cut into squares.
