Kickoff

"I don't know any other way to lead but by example."
-Don Shula


When I was a kid, my mom used to make this recipe called Kickoff.  We weren't a football family so I never associated it with the big game, but I loved it.  Over the years, B has gotten me interested in football and for the last few, I've made Kickoff on Super Bowl Sunday.  I've never been able to find this recipe anywhere so I have no idea where it came from.  I thought I'd put it out there for the world to partake of it's yumminess.  It's in no way healthy, so I'll be taking a free day on the calorie counting.

Kickoff Bars
2 cups Golden Grahams cereal
2 cups stick pretzels
1 cup M&Ms
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup peanut butter
2.5 cups marshmallows

Butter a glass baking dish and mix the Golden Grahams, pretzels, and M&Ms together.  Set aside.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and peanut butter together over low heat.  Add the marshmallows and stir until melted.  Don't let them burn.
When the marshmallows are melted, pour the glaze over the cereal mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.  Let it cool down and enjoy!

You could add anything to the cereal mixture really.  My mom added nuts and raisins, but my kids don't like those.  You might add Chex Mix or popcorn.  Be creative!
