Knock You Naked Bars

"I'm going to marry these!"

Truer words have never rang from my lil bro's mouth.

He might have laughed when he asked the names of these little devils before he took a bit. One bite and he was in love. So in love that he thought he'd marry them.

I love my little brother. He's the best taste tester ever. Way better than the hubs (sorry love ya hun!). He's single therefore every time I make something and he gets to taste test he gets super pumped over it. The hubs on the other hand just says one word answers. Nothing like "I'm going to marry these!" Of course I might take offense to that coming from the hubs.

Maybe it's because my mom trained him so well. Yup going to give mom some credit on this one. Not sure how she trained him to ooo and ahhh over meals and treats, but I'm going to have to pick her brain on this one so I can get the hubs trained.

The hubs...trained. Wow that's a laugh. Does anyone ever get them trained?

If you do please share your secret.

I should also give some credit to the older bro. We were out for Halloween and he had dropped his daughter off to relieve my mom from looking after Miss K. In the midst of the festive bar atmosphere he had to lean over and say, "You have one less bar at home. They were amazing!"

Oh yes that's right this Momma thought she'd go out for a few adult beverages this past weekend. Yup, that cured me of that for another year. I need sleep. 

So if you need someone to propose, love you, oooo and ahh please head to the kitchen with this recipe in hand immediately.

Knock You Naked Bars

1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar

This looks great! But I'm not sure if I want to get naked after eating this. Maybe just kick my shoes off and unbutton my jeans.

Just wear your sweatpants and slippers when would be much more comfy :) I for one, am all about comfort!
