In our house Friday night is pizza and treat night. The other days of the week I try to cook and serve well balanced healthy meals. Some Fridays I make homemade pizza and other times we buy pizza. Anyway, I am getting of course here. Tonight I made something that you would not want to eat often.....very rich and sweet! Yummy? YES...Healthy? NO!!!! It's okay to eat it once in awhile though.
CARAMEL KRISPIE BARS
8 tablespoons butter, divided
8 cups miniature marshmallows, divided
8 cups crisp rice cereal, divided
1 package (14 ounces) caramels I used the new Kraft caramel bits that you find in the baking section -- much easier than unwrapping all those caramels!
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
Directions: In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter and 4 cups marshmallows; stir until smooth. Stir in 4 cups cereal. Pat into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. pan; set aside.
For caramel filling, place the caramels and 4 tablespoons butter in another saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until melted. Stir in the milk until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes; pour over cereal layer. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until firm.
In a large saucepan, melt the remaining butter and marshmallows. Stir in remaining cereal. Spread over caramel layer. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator. CARAMEL KRISPIE BARS
THAT'S WHAT'S FOR DESSERT IN
Now you may have noticed that I have different fonts going on here. If you know me, you will know that I am a perfectionist when it comes to things I type and print. Well, it has been bothering me since I started blogging that the drop down list of fonts had such a minimal amount of choices. Well one day while visiting Jolene's blog I noticed that she had different fonts. So, I promptly emailed her and asked her how she did it!! She was kind enough to let me in the secret!! THANKS JOLENE!! If you have not been over to visit her blog The Primitive Bucket...you better go and check out her work!! Tell her Farmchick sent ya!! Well, Lil' Farmchick has a friend staying over night, Jr. Farmer wants me to play Bunco with him and I must check on Little Farmer who is fast asleep in bed with visions of combining sunflowers....dancing in his head! Have a good weekend everyone and please do leave me a comment and let me know you were here.
