Lined Up in Rows like 16 Soldiers of Deliciousness


Every year there is a small cookie exchange where I work. The deal is 16 people sign up and each of those people make 4 of some type of cookie or other delicious sweet treat for everyone on the list. That’s 64 delicious treats. You drop off your treat on the designated day with a container for the stash you are going to walk away with , little elves divide up all the goodies, and next thing you know you have a bunch of different treats just in time for the holidays. And you only had to make one 1/16 of the varieties now in front of  you. Sounds pretty good, right?

This is the first year I participated. And as you can see, I made Rice Krispie treats. Which I felt compelled to tie up with some twine and a little punched circle of holly paper. For reasons that should be obvious to most. I can be a little obsessive at times. The treats were due today and I wanted them to be extra fresh so I waited until yesterday to make them. The thing is, I worked until 10:15 yesterday so by the time I got home and actually started making all the treats it was well after 11:00 pm. It also took me a couple of hours to make, cut, package, and finish off my treats. So yeah, I was up until almost 2:00 this morning making Rice Krispies treats.

But don’t they look delicious?

I mean, who doesn’t like Rice Krispie treats? And I’m not talking about those crappy things you buy at the store. I’m talking about the real thing, Rice Krispie treats made from scratch. I swear I could eat an entire pan in one night if nobody was watching.

The best part? They are so easy to make. When was the last time you whipped up a batch? What are you waiting for?

Rice Krispie Treats
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 1/2 TBS butter (cut into small pieces)
4 cups Rice Krispies

Butter an 11 x 7 (for fat treats) or 9 x 13 inch pan (for thin treats)

Melt marshmallows and butter together in the microwave for 2 minutes stirring half way. (I stir with a wooden spoon sprayed with cooking spray to keep the sticky factor down.)

Remove mixture and stir once more. Immediately add the cereal. Stir to coat (again, sprayed spoon)

Press treats into the pan. Cool. Cut. Eat.

    I know! We ran out of cereal or I would have made an extra batch for the house.

  • They look so yum! I used to make those and dye them red and green for the holidays. Also add full mini marshmallows because you can never have too much goo. :)

    I LOVE rice krispie treats so much. The ones you buy in the store are gross; they have a chemical taste to them. I am sure your treats are yummy. I meant your rice krispie treats, btw. I am not hitting on you.

    They look adorable! Not too adorable to eat, though… I’d tear through half of those in 15 minutes. NOM.
    Spraying the spoon with cooking spray= what a great idea! Why’d I never think of that? The only reason I never make these is because of the sticky factor involved in the clean-up. Maybe I’ll give it a go again. Seeing that picture up there really makes me want some now!!


  • Thanks for the suggestions shared on your blog. Something else I would like to express is that fat loss is not supposed to be about going on a dietary fad and trying to shed as much weight that you can in a few days. The most effective way to shed pounds is by taking it gradually and using some basic points which can enable you to make the most through your attempt to slim down. You may be aware and already be following many of these tips, but reinforcing information never hurts.


  • You should cancel previous ones to prevent disputes. The
    most common causes that lead to an unhappy situation are: negligent drivers, faulty driving equipment, unsafe roads
    or bridges, bad weather, malfunctioning road equipment or lighting,
    wild animals and bad repairs. The need for car accident
    lawyer arises in the situation when one has suffered major injury causing many losses.
