Summer Treats

For some reason, the 4th of July brings out an insatiable sweet tooth in me. Speaking of teeth, better make that dentist appointment, especially after this dessert.

I made rice crispy treats last week, but was very disappointed. I just followed the recipe on the back of the marshmallow bag, and used an ANCIENT box of Cascadian Farms Rice Crispies. They were horrible to begin with, hence their ancient-ness, but even worse stale. Of course, it never crossed my mind to taste them before I mixed up my marshmallowy treats.

So here is take two, doctored up a bit, and delish!

A big spoonful peanut butter
A spoon of smart balance spread
Almost a full bag of marshmellows
A bunch of NOT STALE rice chex

melt in the microwave, mix up, and cool in a foil bread pan.

The peanut butter makes these WAY better. Plus, it's healthier. I mean you're adding fiber... that's good right?

I am enjoying your blogs! I was so excited to meet the "love of your life" so had a great chuckle when I saw the food processor! We are heading to the lake after work today and it doesn't look like I'm going to find the time to make the rhubarb slush - shucks! We are going to Beth & Gary's tomorrow and will see your folks! Have a Happy 4th!
