School was closed today for Presidents Day. It also snowed again, so the boys and I were snowbound. Again. This has been a very long winter.
I wanted to make Rice Crispy treats with the boys but we didn’t have enough Rice Crispy cereal. The thunder-snow was falling from the heavens and there was no way I was going out for cereal.
What to do? What to do?
We had enough Alpha Bit cereal, so I decided that would work. I thought it would be too bland, so I decided to add some more ingredients. Now, if you have read my previous posts, you know that this always ends bad. But it didn’t this time.
I had about a 1/2 cup of peanut butter left in the jar, so I added that to the melted butter and about a 1/2 to 1 cup of chocolate chips to the pan to melt as well. Then I added the bag of tiny marshmallows and stirred until all that shit was melted. I then added about 5 cups of the cereal. I dumped out the mixture into a brownie pan and spread it out. The last touch was sprinkling what was left of the sprinkle bits*.
I suppose you could fuck up crispy treats, but luck was on my side today! This recipe was a hit! Whew.
*I have no idea what the confetti/dotty thingys are called. D took the empty bottle somewhere, so I don’t know the name. Do my baker friends know?
