Special Marshmallow Treats

This may not be the most exciting recipe, but it’s what I made today and I was pretty happy with the results. In an effort to use up what was left of a giant box of Special K and a bag of marshmallows I’d bought for no particular reason, I substituted Special K for the […]

Scotcheroos with Special K cereal

I was craving Scotcheroos last week, so I went to H.E.B., gathered most of the ingredients, then discovered that the store was completely out of Nestle butterscotch morsels.

Rice Krispie Treats

My favorite Rice Krispie Treat recipe is adapted from an old brand name recipes cookbook. About 3 years ago I posted it with the title Marshmallow Treats from the ‘80s . In hindsight, that wasn’t a very good name since the key to the recipe is the phrase “…melt the butter completely until it just […]

white chocolate krispy treats

Yesterday, while on a mad de-cluttering spree, I decided to part with a bunch of old cooking magazines. Just as I was about to throw away an issue of Cooks’ Country, I saw this recipe and remembered why I’d kept it. It was the issue where they’d tried to improve the classic rice krispy treat […]

Scotcheroos are one of my all-time favorite cookies, so you’d think I wouldn’t forget their name. But that’s exactly what happened this weekend when I got an email from my friend Janet with a recipe for a Rice Krispies bar made with peanut butter and corn syrup and topped with chocolate and butterscotch chips.
