Lately I have been so busy working and so very tired after work. Working in retail and standing all day can take a lot out of you…so here is my excuse for not writing any blog posts for weeks. I apologize….it was much easier to post every day while being just a simple housewife lol
Last Thursday after work we started making cookies for a “Cookie walk”, it´s a cookie sale event in our church for charity. It´s a very good and fun tradition. This was our first year to participate since we just moved to this lovely community. I love going to church every Sunday (when I can) and see all the wonderful people we have met there. I work a lot on weekends now, so unfortunately I can´t go every Sunday.
Our oven is still broken so we had to be creative and since I work in a candy store now, I had a lot of inspiration. So…..we made rice krispies squares with a twist. Ingredient list:
Yield: 170 small treats
6 tbsp butter
12 cups Rice crispies
10 cups marshmallows
1,5 pack semi sweet chocolate chips
1 little jar Sprinkles
In a large pot melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into several baking pans coated with cooking spray. Cool, at least 15 minutes. Cut into inch squares.
While the squares are cooling, melt the chocolate. Bring about an inch of water to a simmer in your saucepan. Set the heatproof bowl in the mouth of the pot, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir chocolate occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat. Brush some chocolate on one half or entire rice krispies square, add sprinkles. I made about 6 at a time so the Christmas trees will stick to the chocolate. It will take a couple of hours for the chocolate to harden. We just kept them covered overnight. Don´t refrigerate! They were nice and soft in the morning! Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.I think they came out awesome and everybody really liked them! The room was filled with people one minute after opening!
