This week’s cooking projects from my collection of recipes included more zucchini with a bacon and onion tomato sauce, chicken soup, blondies, plain cake with a lemon sauce, English muffin breakfast sandwiches (the recipe of which I
will eventually convert I have now converted to my current format, because … I took pictures while cooking it, for future use in a blog post), and cooking breakfast sausages to place in the freezer (pictures of which I also took for future use in a blog post, because although sausages won’t get a recipe, cooked sausages are included in a few of my recipes, and to me, their cooking fits reasonably well into this series of blog posts.)
I was pleased to have on hand the pictures from making the crisped rice treats I made last weekend at the cottage!
Making the Crisped Rice Treats:
First, margarine was taken out, and some margarine was picked up on a paper towel:
The margarine was spread in a 13″ x 9″ x 2″ cake pan:
The greased pan was then put aside.
6-1/2 cups of crisped rice breakfast cereal were measure out:
The crisped rice cereal was transferred to a mixing bowl and put aside:
5-1/2 cups of mini marshmallows were measured out:
The marshmallows were put aside.
A large, heavy pot was taken out:
The stove burner was set to a low heat:
Two dollops of margarine were “measured” out:
The margarine was transferred to the heavy pot:
The margarine was melted in the heavy pot:
Once the margarine was fully melted, the mini marshmallows were added to the heavy pot with the melted margarine:
The stove setting was raised to medium heat:
The marshmallows were constantly stirred while melting, to avoid burning:
While the marshmallows were melting a few feet away and being constantly watched, a cutting board was taken out, to use as a trivet a few moments later:
Very soon, the marshmallows were completely melted, and well mixed with the margarine:
The pot of melted mini marshmallows and margarine mix was transferred to the cutting board:
The crisped rice cereal was transferred to the melted marshmallow and margarine mix:
The crisped rice cereal and melted marshmallow and margarine mix were thoroughly mixed together:
The mixture was transferred to the greased 13″ x 9″ x 2″ cake pan:
The mixture was allowed to slightly cool, but while still warm, it was spread out evenly in the baking pan with a stiff stainless steel egg flipper:
After cooling completely, the contents of the pan were cut into various bite-sized pieces:
Finally, the treats were transferred to a sealable plastic container:
Of course these crispy little treats are yummy!
