S’mores and Final Camp Winners!

Sara's Sugar Maple SweaterWe have tallied the votes for Project Three from Camp Loopy, and I’d like to congratulate Sara in Wisconsin for winning the Reader’s Choice award! Sara knit the Sugar Maple sweater using The Loopy Ewe Solid Series yarn in Charcoal, Iron, Smoke and Dove. I love the color-blocked look of it. Just gorgeous. Sara wins a $35 credit to The Loopy Ewe for being the Reader’s Choice. Thanks to everyone who voted! We also drew two additional names from all of the Project Three entries, and they each win a $25 credit to The Loopy Ewe. Congratulations to Carol from MD and Marilyn from IA!

Since we’re officially wrapping up Camp today, I wanted to share one more S’more recipe. Knitting Daughter made a batch of these this week for our Loopy Elf Night (the Elves get together one night a month for dinner, movies and knitting) and everyone declared the bars “awesome”. And they’re no bake – so super easy. Try them! (recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything blog, via Pinterest.)

No Bake Peanut Butter S'Mores The Loopy EweNo Bake Peanut Butter S’Mores

1/2 cup butter (melted)
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/4 cups peanut butter
8-12 oz. mashmallow fluff
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2-3 cups mini peanut butter cups, coarsely chopped

1. Mix butter, graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar and peanut butter together until well mixed. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.

2. Spread a layer of marshmallow fluff over the top of the graham cracker crust.

3.  Melt the chocolate chips and pour them over the fluff layer, spreading gently.

4.  Sprinkle the peanut butter cup pieces on top, pressing down gently.

Refrigerate at least an hour, until set. Store bars in refrigerator. They will soften at room temperature.

The colors of the Aspens are peaking this weekend! WH has been taking gorgeous photos. I’ll share some next week. Fall in Colorado is always beautiful with the brilliant yellow Aspens sprinkled in with the dark green Evergreen trees.

P.S. We also have a winner of that fun AmiguruME book that I offered on last week’s blog. We’re sending that out to Nikki, who says her grandma taught her to crochet, and she’d like to make her a mini-me for Christmas. Congratulations, Nikki!

  1. Yeah for a Wisconsin winner of the Reader’s Choice!

    The recipe looks wonderful….and vaguely reminds me of a treat we would have on Sundays at the camp I worked at during college. We called them Dipper Dans and it was one of the few chocolate treats served in the Dining Hall. The Counselors got in trouble one weekend because we found the stash stored in the kitchens walk in refrigerator We sorta snuck more out than we thought we did!

  2. I am absolutely elated to have won the reader’s choice! Thanks so very, very much, to the Loopy Ewe and everyone who voted for my sweater! I LOVE how it turned out too! It was my first year participating in Camp Loopy, and I’m sure to be back next Summer. Thanks for having such a cool way for us all to keep our knitting mojo going all summer!

  3. The winner’s sweater is way awesome!!!! Congrats!!! And wahoo to a fellow Wisconsin-er!!!!
    The recipe looks yummy! May try that one too, but I still love the Congo bar recipe that you shared!!!
    The colors here in dairyland are quite beautiful right now- the oranges, yellows and reds are stunning! Dora (wonder retriever) and I look all around us on our walks every day!

  4. I nearly had a coronary reading the ingredients and s’mores recipe! Of course I wanted some right now, immediately, and in great supply! Can’t wait to see the Aspen photos. We had such a dry summer that there is almost no leaves to turn They just dried up and fell off the trees… Of course we are having inches of rain this week to make up for it–too late!
