|I don't want to say that I don't like Rice Krispie Treats, it's just that they have never been one of my favorite desserts. I usually go for something that involves chocolate. But this summer I was at at Girls' Camp with my church and I walked into the cabin where the cooks were staying and someone offered me a Rice Krispie Treat. I never turn down food, so of course I accepted. I took one bite and demanded to know who had made them. Just kidding, I'm not demanding. I asked nicely. They told me Amanda made them (she was the head cook at camp). I asked why they tasted so dang good. They said she browns the butter. I thought to myself, "She's a genius." Why had I never thought of that?! Seriously, such a simple tweak to an already easy recipe, but such a huge difference in the taste. You gotta try these.|
2 sticks butter (don't be trippin' it's fine)
1 (16 oz) bag mini marshmallows
1 (12 oz) box Rice Krispie cereal
*Melt butter over medium heat, stirring frequently, until brown. This takes like 7-8 minutes so be patient. And don't burn it! Add marshmallows and remove from heat. Stir until all marshmallows are melted. Add cereal and mix well. Spread into a 9x13 pan or onto a cookie sheet.
|1 1/2 cups sugar|
1 cup butter, melted and cooled to room temp.
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I recommend Ghirardelli)
*First, melt butter and let cool to room temp. When the butter is cooled, mix the sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs together. Add flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder. Mix until combined. Add chocolate chips and mix in. Spread batter into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Mine were done a few minutes before that, so make sure and check them. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
|1 cup mayo|
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
a few shakes of lemon pepper
salt/pepper to taste
*Stir all ingredients together and mix in with your coleslaw right before serving.
