Enjoy: Sweet Friday Delight
Keeping my Friday tradition, the City Farm went sweet this week; marshmallows, to be exact! We decided to have a little fun in the kitchen in celebration of sending out our first monthly newsletter (join us on the homepage if you haven’t received yours!) with featured products for the month of March. April’s products may be centered around food, but we have a few other City Farm must-sees to send your way. I digress; I needed something sweet, but also something that could be make quickly, food and convenience are my top two.
Two desserts sounded right. City Farm Marshmallow cups, and traditional Rice Krispie treats (who doesn’t love those?) Our City Farm Marshmallow cups can be easily made, all you need are:
1 bag marshmallows, 1 bag chocolate chips, Peanut butter, almonds, granola, candy of your choice and Cupcake cups
The art of creating the perfect marshmallow cup is layering. Begin with a bottom layer of marshmallows, next add in the layer of peanut butter and another candy/nut mix of choice. Add layer two of marshmallows, add a healthy layer of chocolate chips (chocolate is full of antioxidants), and top with another layer of marshmallows. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown! Think s’mores, oven style. Let these delights cool for just a minute! They taste best served hot. Enjoy, and don’t be fooled by their overwhelming appearance. They taste delicious!
More on the traditional side, I decided to make delicious Rice Krispie treats next. To make these buttery sticky squares of heaven you will need:
3 tpsp butter, 1/2 bag of marshmallows, 2 cups rice krisp cereal
Mix the melted butter with the melted marshmallows (microwave for 45 seconds at medium power) together, and pour in your rice krisp cereal. Mix all together in a small baking pan, and pop in the refrigerator! Allow your treats to cool in the refrigerator for 5 minutes, then simply cut the squares, and enjoy!
Happy Friday, may yours be as sweet as mine!
