An old favorite


You may remember several years ago there was a commercial about making Rice Krispie Treats. In the commercial the woman making the treats was out in the kitchen reading a novel after making the treats while her family was in the dining room asking if they were ready yet. After she yells "These things take time," she finally puts down the novel, throws some flour on her face, and enters the dining room with a platter of the treats, much to the delight of the family.

Rice KrispieTreats are quick and easy to make in the microwave and they are very tasty. Here's a recipe for my favorite version:

Marshmallow Treats

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
4 cups of mini marshmallows
5 cups chocolate krispies (I got these at Aldi -- most stores have their own brand)

In a large bowl or measuring cup (I use a 6 cup measure) melt the butter and peanut butter on high for 35-45 seconds. Add the marshmallows and microwave for 1 minute at 70% power. Stir in the krispies and coat throughly. Press into a buttered 9" x 13" pan. Cool and cut into squares. Enjoy your quick and easy treat!

While Drew has been with us this week he has been helping with a variety of chores around the house. Here he is washing the bench from our front porch:

Here he is rolling out some dough for Gorditas with his mom. He said he was "doughing." We've been having fun. 🙂
