Bad Mom = Cookie Brittle!

I was a grumpy mom this morning. I apologized to my kids before they left for school, and I even gave them all a kiss. They are so forgiving! After feeling bad throughout the day, for being a part of helping them start their day off with a negative spin – I redeemed myself!
How did I redeem myself?
I made Cookie Brittle, an easy 5-ingredient recipe. I had it waiting for them when they walked through the door, after school.
Bad Mom = Cookie Brittle.
The kids eyes lit up when they saw what I had made!
Mix together: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 cups flour. Add: 1 cup chocolate chips. Press into a 15×9 jelly roll pan (I used my Pampered Chef Bar Pan.)
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, checking often so it doesn’t burn around the edges. It should be brown all over. Cool. Break into irregular pieces.
Food always helps when we get in a bind, doesn’t it?
I’m just a normal mom, not perfect by any means. And I bet you are, too!
I’m thankful for God’s grace, and I’m thankful that my kids understand it, too!
What do you make your family when you want to give them a treat?
