Fruity Tootie Jello February 17, 2011

Filed under: Recipes — curlyqpy @ 12:10 PM

I have just recently made a recipe I would like to share. JELLO! It’s actually a great snack for really hot days (which are very common here). Ladies and Gentleman, my jello recipe.

First you’ll need a 9×13″ pan.  If you have fresh fruit you can use that, but I just use the canned fruit. I would NOT recommend apples or bananas. You can take fruit cocktail or peaches (I use peaches) and put them in the bottom of your pan. Then you mix up a couple of boxes of jello (you thought the jello was homemade didn’t you?) and pour it over the fruit. You stick it in the fridge and voila, you have the perfect snack for hot days.

This is a recipe that my Nana always makes. We can’t make it here because we don’t have all the ingredients, but when Nana visits, she packs them in her suitcase and we enjoy K-bars! It’s so wonderful that I thought why not share it with the world? So here it is.


1 cup white corn syrup

1 cup sugar

1 cup peanut butter

6 cups Special K cereal

1 cup chocolate chips(mmmmmmm!)

1 cup butterscotch chips

Heat sugar and syrup to boiling. remove from heat and stir in peanut butter; pour over cereal. Mix well. Press in greased 9×13″ pan. Melt chips over low heat and spread on top(don’t forget to lick the spoon!). Put in fridge or freezer until cool and cut into bars. Enjoy! (Number of servings 18-24 bars)


Floating Bus February 10, 2011

Most buses in Paraguay have photos, stickers, or designs on their back window. Our favorites are when they photoshop pictures of buses in mountains or in the middle of a desert. Check out the bus on the right in this picture below. It’s floating in the river!
