But, with TWO THANKSGIVING babies this year, she had to scale down... When she asked her family to pick one or two favorite cookies -- imagine her surprise when many of us said, in unison "the marshmallow caramel crispy things".
During Mary's visit, we made a double batch of these delicious treats...this is a picture of my people -- before we actually got to the cooking portion of the evening.
You will need:
2 bags of marshmallows
1 box of Rice Krispie cereal
To make the caramel:
2 bags of Kraft Caramels (unwrap them)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of butter
______Deena microwaves the caramel mixture -- but you could also melt it in a double boiler.
Working fast, one at a time, roll the marshmallows -- first in the caramel, then in Rice Krispies. (if the caramel gets too hard, just reheat it..)
WE ARE TALKING SOME serious heaven here, folks!! And it's a fun treat to make with kids, too. They're best after they set up for an hour or so...Store in an open container (otherwise, the cereal gets soft).
