a confession

What did I, Miss Butter, Miss Baking, make for my dear sweet Jordan on his birthday?

Rice crispy treats. Yep, that’s right folks. Rice crispy treats.

Just in case you need the recipe, here it is …

Rice Crispy Treats

4 T butter
6 cups marshmallows
8 cups rice crispy cereal

Butter a baking dish and set aside. In a large pot, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows. Stirring constantly, melt marshmallows into a super-sticky paste. Add rice cereal and stir to combine. Pour into baking dish and press evenly into dish using wax paper or buttery hands.

And you know what? Rice crispy treats are delicious. I love Jet-Puffed marshmallows, despite the fact they are made entirely of high fructose corn syrup – my enemy in most other contexts.

Happy Birthday to Jordan, “the butter to my bread”, the bacon to my mac & cheese, and my absolute favorite.

With any luck and more butter, he’ll get a more adventurous birthday treat this weekend.
