A leftover jar of marshmallow creme from the S’mores Cookie Bars.
The solution is pretty obvious, right?
I wish I had wax paper and pressed these down more, though. They’re kind of loose and fall apart the minute I pick them up. -____- I wanted them to be firm but pretty much failed.
Rice Crispy Treats
3 tablespoons butter
1 7-ounce jar of marshmallow creme
6 cups Rice Crispy cereal
Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the marshmallow creme and stir until melted and fully incorporated. Remove from heat and add cereal. Mix until fully coated and then spread evenly into a pre-greased 13×9 pan with a buttered spatula or wax paper. Press down into pan and let cool for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
I took the liberty of dipping them in Nutella. :)
As if they weren’t already sweet enough.
If you want to dip your’s too, just melt the Nutella in a double boiler until it’s soft and malleable, and then add a couple tablespoons of milk or heavy-cream at room temperature and beat until it’s thin enough to your liking. Then, dip or drizzle the rice crispies while the Nutella sauce is still hot and let them cool and harden before serving.
I’ve been praying recently about forgiveness and being a better person. I feel being patient has always been a struggle of mine… When someone says or does something that doesn’t sit right with me or rubs me the wrong way, I’m quick to take a note about that person. I don’t like him/her. Mental check. I get frustrated, annoyed, and my tongue is quick to retort back whatever it is that I’m thinking, which is not very nice most of the time.
I don’t try to get along with everybody I meet, and I know I’m a difficult person sometimes, so I’m not asking for the impossible, but I do know that I need to try to forgive those around me who I can’t find the patience for.
I also need to forgive the people who’ve hurt me in the past…
If anything, this is most difficult for me. I tend to hold grudges.
College has been an eye-opener for me. Met a lot of people, some great, some not so much. Some people who I absolutely loathe. Wouldn’t care in the very least if I never had to see them for as long as I lived.
See? Things like that. Can’t keep it to myself.
So, I’m struggling with forgiveness and patience.
But every time I feel like I’m forgiving someone, I feel like God just throws somebody new in my face who I feel like strangling. Or pushing off a mountain. Whichever happens to be convenient at the moment. I want to embrace people because they are His children, but we’re all imperfect and annoying and flawed, especially me.
So. How do I deal with myself? So that I can deal with everybody else? And learn to love forgive forget accept? I hope this gets easier with practice and time. I want to be a patient person. I think I am most of the time….. I’m not sure. I can be outwardly patient but imploding inside.
It’s a work-in-progress.
I think I’ll have a marshmallow treat and think on it.
Who ever said dessert can’t be brain-food.
