2015-05-15-5871

Oh my gosh you guys! These Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispie Treats are going to knock your socks off!

Don’t get me wrong rice krispie treats are always tasty. However, every time I make rice krispie treats it’s time to play! To me rice krispie treats are like a blank canvas, the possibilities are endless!

The end of school was really getting to be a grind, so I decided to put a smile on everyone’s face and make these Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispie Treats. School just ended around here. :)

2015-06-15-5851

So let’s discuss – marshmallow, butter, krispie cereal, peanut butter, chopped candy, chocolate and of course sprinkles! All I can say is – count me in! You don’t have to ask me twice.

As for the boys, they couldn’t eat these treats fast enough, and thenthey had to divvy up the leftovers to share with their friends! So funny!

If you haven’t tried a good over-the-top rice krispie treat before, you have got to try these!

Don’t worry about having egg shaped candy! I used candy eggs I had in the freezer only because I got them for next to nothing after Easter. Regular peanut butter cups or fun size candy bars will work just fine!

2015-06-15-5842

Of course these treats needed a milk chocolate topping and confetti sprinkles on top! Don’t all treats?

2015-06-15-5853

Why confetti sprinkles? Because they’re fun and happy! Of course, feel free to use whatever sprinkles make you happy. :)

Chocolate Marshmallow Hand Pies

CMHP_138

How fun are these little Chocolate marshmallow Pocket Pies? Even if you don’t usually go for pie, you have to admit pocket pies are just plain old fun!

Chocolate Marshmallow Hand Pies_114

Hello everyone! My apologies for just kind of disappearing for a few days. I was very busy working with my IT Support on the new updated website. Please be patient we’re still working out a few of the details. I hope you guys like the new look and flow!!

My latest creations are these delicate and delicious Chocolate Marshmallow Hand Pies. I desperately wanted to do a fruit pie of some sort, but truth be told in this tundra I call home berries are still way too expensive, or they don’t look very good yet. So, I decided I needed to go another route.

I decided to go with chocolate and marshmallow. After all, you can’t really wrong with chocolate and marshmallow, can you?

CMHP_138

Today I used a store bought crust because I already had a package in the fridge. I was going to make a meat & potato pie that never happened. When/If it does I will be share to share with all of you.

Back to the crust, the only warning I have is be sure to let the pie crust sit out for a bit like the package states. The crust needs that time to warm up or it will be very difficult to work with.

CMHP_118

For my pocket pies I used a round cookie cutter that was approximately 2-1/2 inches. You can certainly use a glass instead if you prefer. You could also go a little larger if you prefer, however I wouldn’t go any smaller.  

Anything smaller becomes much more difficult to work with.

CMHP_140

You guys know I am always honest with you! These pocket pies are on the sweeter side, but they’re not sugar coma sweet! You will find that after a bite or two, you can’t help yourself! They are just so wonderful!

If you would rather you can use Nutella, I have also gone that route before and they also turned out very well. :)

Chocolate Marshmallow Hand Pies_114

This recipe should give you about 12 – 18 hand pies depending on how big you like to make your hand pies.

Chocolate Marshmallow Hand Pies

ingredients:                                                                                                                    selected_114

1 package refrigerated pie crusts, brought to room temperature

Hershey’s Chocolate Spread

Mini Marshmallows – you will need less than half a package

small amount of water in a cup water for sealing crust

1 egg white beaten +  splash of water

white sanding sugar, also called white sprinkling sugar, optional

directions:

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.

2. Roll out each dough circle just a bit with a rolling pin. Work with one pie crust at a time. Using a three inch round cookie cutter, or drinking glass, begin cutting your rounds. Repeat with the other pie crust. Re-roll dough and recut, as desired. You should get about 10 three inch rounds out of each crust – for a total of 20 rounds or 10 hand pies.

3. Spread about 1 teaspoon of Hershey’s chocolate spread in the center of your dough circle. Top with approximately 3-5 mini marshmallows.

4. Take half of the dough circles meant to be the tops, using a fork pierce the dough circle to allow any steam to escape. Do this only with the tops. Lightly wet your index finger with the water, and run your finger around the outside edge of the bottom pie dough round. Place second dough circle on top of the first circle with spread and gently press the edges together to seal. Crimp with a fork, if you like the look, or simply make sure circle is completely sealed.

5. Place on a prepared baking sheet, brush lightly with egg wash then generously sprinkle with the sanding sugar, if using. The white sanding sugar is a nice touch, but it’s optional. Bake for approximately 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.

Oatmeal Marshmallow Cookie Sandwiches

Delicious homemade marshmallow buttercream frosting lathered between two freshly made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Please pass the milk!  

OMCS_001

I was experimenting in the kitchen today like I often do, especially during this never-ending Winter, and I came up with something I think you guys are really going to like.

Today I am sharing my Oatmeal Marshmallow Cookie Sandwiches. Okay, let me clear the air right away. I know a lot of people grew up eating Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies. However, I did not! We just never had them in the house.

I know what they are of course, but I have never actually had one. I wasn’t out to copy anyone or anything, I just wanted a little something different. :)

I am very happy with how these turned out! Because, everything in these cookies tastes the way I want it to taste. Don’t you love it when that happens?

A homemade chocolate chip oatmeal cookie with homemade vanilla marshmallow buttercream frosting. What’s not to love? 

Make sure you make these on the smaller side like I explain in the recipe. Trust me on this, when made with real ingredients they are very filling, and very very good!

Charming Minty Marshmallow Treats

Title Pic

Be honest, are you a St. Patirck’s Day fan?

Well, whether you are or aren’t there’s no reason why you can’t have a little fun making these Charming Minty Marshmallow Treats. These slightly minty treats are great the way they are! But the best part is there are a million ways to adapt these delights.

Let’s take a look at how to whip these charming treats!

034     010     009

So first we have the Limited Edition Lucky Charms for St. Patrick’s Day. If you can find them at a grocery store near you for a decent price, that’s great, if not go with regular Lucky Charms.

Then we have a close-up of the bright green Lucky Charms. Aren’t they fun?

Of course you start out with melting your butter and marshmallows together until mixture is smooth. Then, I added a 1/4 cup of Andes mints, chopped to the marshmallow mixture. The chopped Andes just kind of melt in and add a great taste to the treats.

* MM Note: I went light on the Andes Mints only because anything mint is tricky around here. Basically, mint is a tough sell around here! You could certainly add more Andes Mints or even mini chocolate chips, if you wanted.

002

I used two jumbo muffin pans for the Charming Minty Marshmallow Treats. It’s just kind of fun to have the treats in a different shape.

You could just as easily use a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray to make regular bars. Then once the bars cool, cut them into squares, or use a cookie cutter for any shape you want.

Charming Minty Marshmallow Treats   

INGREDIENTS

4-5 tablespoons butter

3 cups miniature marshmallows & 1 extra handful

* I always like to add an extra handful of marshmallows when I make any kind of marshmallow treats.

6 cups Lucky Charms cereal with green clovers

1/4 cup Andes Mints, chopped

Mini chocolate chips, optional

Marshmallow Bits, optional

St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, optional

004

DIRECTIONS

1. Spray a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

* I like to spray the bottom of my pot with nonstick cooking spray when I make any kind of marshmallow treats. It makes clean up super easy! 

2. Melt butter and miniature marshmallows in a large pot over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Once mixture is completely melted and smooth, add the chopped Andes Mints, then add the cereal and stir until completely combined.

3. Evenly distribute the marshmallow mixture into the sprayed pan, or sprayed mega muffin cups, and press it into an even layer.

4. Immediatemly top with any combination of chocolate chips, Marshmallow Bits, or St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles, if desired. Allow to set completely before removing from muffin pans, or cutting, if using a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Transfer to a serving plate and serve.
