A Classy Treat

In lieu of an introduction, I thought I'd post a recipe so glitzy and glamorous it will blow all y'all away. But then I thought, to hell with it - it's 8.20am on a Thursday Morning, midterms are coming up, papers are waiting to be written (kids, keeping a 15 page paper until the last minute is never a good idea, especially if you are a humanities major attempting a paper on intergalactic radiation or some such wacky shit you know nothing about), plastic handles of cheap vodka to be *ahem* "disposed" of - and, let's face it, there's just no time to find your kiss-the-chef apron buried amidst 2 month's worth of laundry and dally on down to the student kitchen only to discover that some bastard stole all the cookie sheets and there is no butter ANYWHERE - and christ, that was one hell of a run on sentence. Anyhoodles, I decided instead on an easy-yet-effective recipe guaranteed to curb your late night munchies that requires only a microwave, a bowl, a spoon and ingredients you probably already have in your room or could easily pilfer from your dining hall. Trust me - it's so easy you could even make it while inebriated. I tried.

microwave cocoa krispies treats

ingredients (note: this is only a rough estimate. I'm a big advocate of eye-ballin' it)
1 1/2 tb peanut butter (i recommend smooth)
2 cups cocoa krispies
2 cups marshmallows (use the small kind)

Dump the peanut butter into the bottom of a microwaveable bowl, followed by half the cocoa krispies. Cover with marshmallows, then another layer of cocoa krispies. Top off with the last of the marshmallows, then microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the marshmellows form a nice poofy dome over your bowl. Remove from microwave and stir until the whole thing is coated evenly with  PB and marshmallows, and stick together in a clump. At this point, you can add more marshmallows and microwave for another 30 seconds if mixture doesn't stick.

This recipe could be altered in many ways. You could, instead of peanut butter, use normal butter or even some hydrogenated shit butter substitute (although if you go this latter route I will point and laugh at you and call you a sissy). You could use normal rice krispies instead of cocoa krispies; in fact, most cereals will work, although puffy ones work the best. You could also add other ingredients too - I used to make them with chocolate chips sometimes... and they were yummy.

So yeah, that's it from me for now....

peace and love -
