Camille and I had the opportunity to attend a luncheon for Dairy Queen’s Miracle Treat Day benefiting The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. We are so excited to be involved with The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, as they have have personally impacted our lives. Because of the wonderful staff at Primary Children’s Medical Center (one of the 170 children’s hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network), Camille’s little boy is alive and well today, which you can read about here.
(I wish you could see Camille’s cute baby bump in the top picture! She looks darling!)
The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed most. When a donation is given it stays in the community, helping local kids. Since 1983, The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of their mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. Find your Children’s Miracle Network Hospital at www.cmnhospitals.org.
To help raise money for The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Dairy Queen is hosting “Miracle Treat Day” TODAY! Dairy Queen will donate $1 or more to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for every Blizzard treat sold today! Be sure to stop by your local Dairy Queen to help raise money for a great cause!
When I think about Blizzards, I think of all the DELICIOUS flavors they come in. I thought it was only appropriate to share one of my family’s favorite brownie recipes!
Better Than Anything Brownies Recipe:
Ingredients: 1 package German chocolate cake mix 1 (5 3/4 ounce) can evaporated milk 1 (14 ounce) bag caramels 3/4 cup melted butter 1 bag milk chocolate chips 1 (8 ounce) bag Heath toffee bits
Directions: Mix together cake mix, melted butter and 1/3 cup evaporated milk. Press 1/2 of mix into a 9 x 13-in. greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes. Remove brownies from oven and sprinkle on half the bag of Heath toffee bits. Melt together caramels and rest of the evaporated milk, pour over toffee bits. Sprinkle on half the bag of chocolate chips. Spread the remaining batter on top (this is easiest if you take pieces of the batter, flatten each individual piece in your hands and place on top). Sprinkle remaining toffee bits and chocolate chips on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
