Cocoa Krispie Treats


Can you believe that I am 30-years-old and I've never made Rice Krispie Treats?  The simplest thing in the world to make, that toddlers can make them (with adult help on the stove, that is), and I've never made them!  Why you may ask?  Well, to be perfectly honest, I'm not a huge fan of Rice Krispie Treats.  Never really have been for some reason.  I've always found them to be too dry and boring.  

Every time I tell someone I'm not a fan, they look at me like I have a few heads.  Rob included!  Rob loves them, and when he asked me to make some with Cocoa Krispies for a family reunion I figured, "sure, why not.  I don't really have a lot of time to make much, but of course I'm taking something."  While at the store I picked up the ingredients I needed, all two of them, and whipped these up while preheating the oven for dinner.  

I still don't really like regular Rice Krispie Treats, but made with Cocoa Krispies - yes please!  These were fantastic, quick and easy. 

I know many people have made these over and over again and don't really need a recipe, but maybe someone reading is like me and actually needs to look the recipe up!

Cocoa Krispie Treats
Ingredients:
3 Tablespoons butter
4 cups mini marshmallows or 1 10-oz. package regular marshmallows
6 cups Cocoa Krispies (or Rice Krispies if you're a purist!)
Directions:
In a large sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat.  Add marshmallows, stirring until completely melted.  Remove from heat.

Add cereal and stir until completely mixed.

Prepare a 9x13 pan by spraying with cooking spray.  Using a butter spatula, evenly spread cereal mixture in prepared pan.  Allow to cool before cutting and serving.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
