Eat It! Or Dont. ‘Bit -‘Mallow Treats

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?

I improvised.

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?
