WHAT TO DO ON A LAZY RAINY SUNDAY AFTERNOON

I'm back.....sort of... It's Sunday afternoon and it's raining and I feel lazy. I felt like making something quick to make so I thought, that I would make some Marshmallow Rice Krispy Squares. I had an old bag of marshmallows in the cupboard and I was glad to finally use it.



Only the marshmallows were a bit too old and wouldn't melt in the butter. They just turned a nice caramelized color and puffed up but refused to melt even under prolong low heat. I hate wasting food and I let them cool. They have a nice crispy buttery outer skin and taste even better than roasted marshmallow on a stick. That was the easiest treat I ever made unintentionally.  That's what I did today.

My niece Suzette passed away on Thursday of a brain tumour. She collapsed on Sunday and was taken to the hospital and she died on Thursday. She was 50 years old. Please say a prayer for strength and courage for her husband and son and family. God bless.  JB

  1. Julia, i'm so sorry to hear about your niece. How heartbreaking! You and the family have my sincere sympathy.

    I bet those marshmallows are yummy. I love them toasted on a stick, but browned in buter has to be even better.

  10. I tried rolling them in the rice Krispie but it wouldn't stick to them. I even mashed one and it wouldn't stick to the krispies. Very unusual. JB
