Bake! Bake! Bake!

Gavin grabbed his "Nenny" by the hand this morning and said, "I want to make some non-bake muffins."  WHAT??  So he repeated it.  About 4 times.  So as the Mrs. gathered up some things that might could be used for doing such an unknown thing, Gavin pulled out the muffin tins and plopped them on the table.  Before long, the muffin cups were installed, and he was off and running dropping in chocolate chips,  craisins (cranberry raisins),  and white chocolate chips-- all three his very own idea of what he wanted in these "non-bake" muffins.

The Mrs. found about a half  box of graham cracker crumbs that she had used to make some pie crusts earlier, so she poured those into a pan.  Gavin helped pour some melted butter into a cup full of peanut butter, and then stir it all together.  It was then poured over the graham cracker crumbs, and mixed in well, then scooped over into the muffin tins.  I helped "pack them down" a little with a small glass that Gavin took away from me exclaiming, "I'll do it!  I'll do it!"   So I let him.  Then all were topped off with some melted chocolate spooned smoothly over each, and placed into the refrigerator to cool for a while.
They were not bad at all.  Tasted just fine in fact.  Gavin took one bite, but after that decided he only wanted to eat the hardened chocolate that had been spread on top of each one.   Wonder what goodies he'll come up with for us to bake tomorrow......
