Today’s Recipe?

Amazing!

All you Rice Krispies Treat lovers….Hear ye, Hear ye! Make these Funfetti treats soon.

What makes this recipe so freakin’ good is that the butter is browned before the marshmallows are added. This gives the treats a nutty flavor. The nonpareils give them a fun look and add delicious crunch.

Ingredients:

4 ounces unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt or coarse sea salt
1 (10-ounce) bag marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
2-4 tablespoons sprinkles or nonpareils (I used 3 Tbs rainbow nonpareils)

Directions:

1. Lightly grease the inside of a 13- by 9-inch baking dish.

2. In a large, heavy pot, melt butter and salt over medium-low heat. The butter will melt, foam, then become clear golden before finally starting to turn brown. Stir frequently and do not leave the butter unattended as it goes from perfect brown to burned very quickly.

3. As soon as the butter becomes a medium brown color, add the marshmallows and turn the heat down to lowest. Stir until the marshmallows have melted into a smooth mixture. Remove from heat and, working quickly, stir in the cereal and 2 tablespoons sprinkles just until combined.

4. Immediately turn out treat mixture into prepared pan. Gently press the mixture evenly into the pan. Sprinkle remaining tablespoon of sprinkles over top.

This is one of those songs that has a happy title and cheerful beat, then you listen to the lyrics and realize it is miserable as hell.

I like it like that.

“Me?
Well I’ve been sleeping, as usual
You’re all that’s visible – in my dreams – it’s you and me
And we both seem so happy

But at this time I’m out of mind
Sometimes I don’t think before I speak

Me?
Well I just won’t speak, I’ll only breathe
Maybe then I’ll see
I’ll just live, feel the world beneath my feet
“You gotta dig”: singing those lines made me…

Think so much about my giving up
Sometimes I don’t think before I speak

Last night, yeah you said you’d be just fine
Or did you lie?
Now I’m thinking that I should change my mind
Well I’m alright

I don’t know why
I did what I did last night, I lost my mind”
