A couple week’s ago our family had a super special experience. Our son, along with my sisters son (who just happens to be best friends) chose to be baptized members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was a beautiful day and such a neat experience to see these two sweet boys choose to follow the example of their Savior. It’s amazing how close to God these children can be at such a young age of 8. I was so impressed with their faith and dedication to follow God’s plan. I sure just love these boys and wanted to share some of the highlights of that special day.
Besides the baptism being an amazing experience, we spent the remainder of the day with friends and family. We had a barbecue in our backyard and enjoyed visiting and being together. Our boys love Milky Way candy bars and so their desserts of choice was anything with Milky Way’s. We decided to make Milky Way Chocolate Chop Cookies (sounds complicated but it’s just a chocolate chip cookie recipe with chopped up candy bars in it–yum!). We then found a recipe for Milky Way Rice Krispie Treats on Pintrest. I decided to come up with my own version and these were definitely the hit of the party. If you’re looking for a quick dessert to make for Memorial Day, this one’s a crowd pleaser for sure!
