A Classic and New Pictures April 23, 2019

I hope y’all had a lovely Easter weekend!  We had a wonderful, full day at church and some restful time at home.  This week, I’m mostly sharing some updated pictures, plus one recipe that I’ve referenced a bunch of times, but never actually shared.

First up is my hubby’s most favorite dish – Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole.  As I’ve mentioned before, it’s not healthy, but it’s delicious and a special treat that he requests ever year for his birthday.  This year was no different, so I took the opportunity to update the pictures.  Just look at all that buttery goodness!

In my continuing quest to go through all my recipes, I got to remake these Brazilian Fudge Truffles (also called brigadeiros).  This time, I made sure to chill them before rolling them out, so they turned out much prettier.  I think my favorite thing about these is that, for relatively little work, you get a really fancy looking treat that would make a great gift.  These are also SUPER customizable because you could add all sorts of flavorings and change up the coatings.  The sky’s the limit!

So for one of my hubby’s birthday treats, I decided to make Rice Krispies Treats.  He’s pretty picky about what kind of cakes he likes, but these treats always go over well. 😀  And like I said before, I’ve made all sorts of variations on these, but I’ve never shared the basic recipe.  I just use the standard recipe, and they always disappear quickly.  Since these were for a birthday, I added in some sprinkles.  🙂

Rice Krispies Treats (from RiceKrispies.com)

3 tbsp. butter

10 oz. marshmallows

6 c. rice krispies

  1. (Before starting, I like to grease my bowl and the spatula I want to stir with.  It just helps everything come off easier in the end.)  In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat the butter and marshmallows on high for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes.  Stir till smooth.  (You can also do this in a saucepot on the stove.)
  2. Add in the rice krispies and stir till well coated.
  3. Using a buttered spatula (or greased hands), press the mix evenly into a greased 9×13 pan.  Let cool before cutting into squares.

Do you like your Rice Krispies Treats regular or do you swap in a different cereal?
