Today, I'm rocking the latter. This does not, however, mean that I am forced into a sad state of dessertlessness. I could eat ice cream. I could try a new bakery. I could make Rice Krispies treats. Mmmm...
What is it about the RKT? Childhood nostalgia? Marshmallow perfection? In my book, the chewy-crispy squares are a wonderful foil for the richness of my usual dessert pursuits. The fact that a six year old could make them is a total bonus.
According to the official Rice Krispies website, Rice Krispies Treats consist of the following:
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
10 oz marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies
Melt the first two ingredients together, add the third, and mush into a pan.
Since I was home alone this evening, I decided a half batch would be sufficient. I opted for the microwave method, but committed the ultimate rookie mistake...
|This is what happens when your bowl is too small.|
I compensated for my faux pas with a handful of M&Ms. I consider myself forgiven.
Tomorrow, I plan some legit baking. I've got a sack full of apples that I picked myself. I feel a crisp coming on. Until then, I'll do my best to save a couple of these for the husband so he, too, can...
Keep it sweet. Pin It
