Now don’t get me wrong here. I’m as much of a fan of the traditional Rice Krispie as the next girl. But I got to tell ya I am loving this new recipe I tried from The S’mores CookBook.
Yesterday Jamie came home with a bad case of ‘I should have done my homework in study hall but instead I goofed off-itis.’ It happens. I remember the struggle.
I decided that while he worked I would make this recipe I’ve been wanting to try. Last time I went to a blogging workshop at Kevin and Amanda’s (Ya know, that time my pants fell off) we went home with an awesome swag bag full of goodies. Two of the things we received were The S’mores Cookbook by Susan Whetzel and Marshmallow Madness by Shauna Sever. The marshmallow book is actually puffy like a real marshmallow- so much fun.
It is a lot like a Rice Krispie recipe in that you melt butter and marshmallows, mix in cereal and then press it into a pan. But its…I mean…I may be about to say I like it BETTER than Rice Krispies. It just tastes like a straight off the campfire S’more!
Let’s look at the recipe:
See? That’s it. Just butter, marshmallows, graham cereal (I used Golden Grahams) and chocolate.
Melty, melty, stirry, stirry, smushy, smushy and voila! Perfection.
And after you make it? Make sure to write down what was happening. Whoever inherits/buys/finds the cookbook after you will thank you .
The bars turned out so good that I went a little crazy and make the S’mores Trail Mix from the book too.
Look! This stuff is so good even my salt and pepper shakes are looking over in approval. Again, don’t forget to write a note by the recipe!
And then bag that business up because it’s perfect to toss into lunch bags.
Now, go try this recipe!
