Smores Autumn Chocolate Dip

This was an experiment on the BBQ that was a hit!

We created a make shift double boiler by using a 8×8 aluminum tin for the base and an aluminum pie tray to place on the top.

Pick your Favourite chocolate bar and break into squares, about 2 cups, place on bottom of pie tray
Place 1 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows among the chocolate
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of orange and brown Smarties

Fill the 8×8 tin with water halfway – place on BBQ
Place chocolate, marshmallow pie tray on top

We heated at 250 degrees for 12 minutes…until melted, keep checking until desired consistency

Create a tray with your favourite dipping food. We used apples, graham wafers and bananas.

Microwaved Apple Peach Quinoa Crumble

20140814-141751-51471175.jpg

I use my microwave to reheat beverages only. Many of my friends no longer use it for various reasons.
However I had some apple and peaches to use up and I’m a little tired of fruit salad and muffins.
So I decided a crumble but I didn’t have the time to bake it. In the end this only took me 15 minutes!

Ingredients
4 Apples not peeled, chopped
3 Peaches not peeled, chopped
3/4 Oats
3/4 Quinoa Flakes
4 TB Flour
3/4 Brown Sugar
3/4 melted butter

Directions
Spray a 9×9 glass bakeware and place apples and peaches in
In a bowl combine all dry ingredients
Melt butter and add to dry ingredients and mix until crumbly
Spread over fruit and pat gently
Microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until fruit is tender
