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
