I can assure you that I have snapped out of my cooking rut! Woohoo! Craig is now breathing a HUGE sigh of relief. He saw me walk in with Boston Market last night I thought he was going to fall out of his chair, or rush me to the Emergency Room in fear that I might have some kind strange illness.
Like I said, I think I was just in a weird mood or funk. But it was a new day & I was ready to cook! Last night I didn’t make anything special, just turkey sausage with peppers & onions. For Craig, I put them in hot dog buns & topped them with cheese; I served it them with baked beans. (sorry, no pictures 😦 ) I just ate mine plain & topped them with baked beans. Quite a combination for the two of us with bad stomach- peppers, onions, AND baked beans?! YIKES! Steer clear of our house tonight! 😀 Haha! (again, sorry if that was tmi..I figure you are just used to stomach talk with me 🙂 )
Rice Krispies. They are probably my favorite cereal. I just LOVE the popping (<–almost wrote ‘pooping!’ oops!), cracking & a little sprinkling of sugar over top. Here’s the biggest kicker & please don’t think I’m gross, but I like my Rice Krispies soggy. Yes, don’t you worry, you read that right…soggy Rice Krispies.
I really like all of my cereal soggy. I usually let it sit for a good 3-5 minutes before eating it. But rice krispies are the ultimate BEST soggy cereal. Ok, now that I have totally grossed you out…here is something that should make up for my ‘weirdness.’ 🙂
Of course, brought to you by the famous Jessica 🙂 Told you, I just love her. I can’t get enough of her recipes.
Cake Batter Crispy Treats
original recipe on the back of the cereal box!
3 tablespoons butter
1 10-ounce bag of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups rice krispies cereal
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows.
Stir until they begin to melt, adding in cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix.
(I actually added the sprinkles to the melted marshmallows before adding cereal)
Press into a baking dish (any size will do) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting. I find spraying a knife with nonstick spray helps to cut them.
Now take a BIG bite & then try to hold back your excitement…& your desire to eat the entire batch. 😀
I tell ya, it’s a good thing I have started doing double workouts again….these treats are almost too good to be true. I mean can it get much better?! Cake batter AND sprinkles???! PERFECT dessert in my opinion 😀
