Rebekah and Anton are officially engaged! The first part of the story is here on Rebekah's blog, and the second part is here. Several interesting facts are revealed in her posts. One is that she is going to have what might possibly be the biggest engagement ring ever, so big in fact that it will have to be worn around her neck instead of on her finger. Another is there are a few things about communication they forgot to teach in the journalism program she just completed.
|Rebekah and Anton|
1 package chocolate chips
1 package butterscotch chips
1 package peanut butter chips
2 cups chopped unsalted peanuts
2 cups crushed potato chips
Melt the chips in a double boiler. Remove from heat and stir in the ground peanuts and crushed potato chips. Spoon into mini baking cups and chill until firm.
Now, the only difficult part about this should be trying not to eat the whole batch in one day. After all, there are only 5 ingredients. How could anyone mess this up? Well, apparently quite easily. First of all, we didn't buy any peanut butter chips. Oh well, I just added extra butterscotch chips and chocolate chips and stirred in a bit of peanut butter. Close enough. The next mistake was not so easily fixed. Even though I had purchased the potato chips I forgot to put them in. I didn't notice this lapse until the chocolates had hardened in their little paper cups, making it impossible to rectify my mistake. The good news is they taste good anyway. The bad news is I need to be capable of feeding a dozen people a day breakfast, lunch and dinner next week and if this is any indication of my skill level we are all going to come out of Christmas 2010 weighing a lot less than we went in.
