My popcorn kernels, peanut butter, and nutella all bully each other around on their crowded shelf in my pantry. When I pull the peanut butter down, he knocks the nutella over, and when I grab the popcorn kernels, they push the peanut butter off of the ledge. They just won’t play nicely or give each other any personal space!
When I mentioned the predicament to Rebecca at Crave, she encouraged me to create a snack that combined all three. Although tempted to stick them in hour-long timeouts in separate corners of the kitchen, I decided to try her suggestion and get the three to cooperate after all.
With holiday music playing and Christmas lights twinkling, I taught the popcorn, peanut butter, and nutella about the season of love and joy as I stirred, shaped, and drizzled them into a sweet treat. By the end of the night, they erased their names from Santa’s Naughty List and earned an extra present in place of a lump of coal!
