I may or may not have devoured half the pan of these today.

Oh, who am I kidding, that totally happened.

I feel like Rice Krispies cereal should be way more popular than it is. I mean, it’s basically the breakfast equivalent of Pop Rocks and Pop Rocks are awesome, but Rice Krispies really only get any attention when they’re smothered in melted marshmallows and cut into bars. Tough luck, guys.

Rice Krispie Treats do deserve the attention, though. They take maybe 15 minutes tops to pull together, don’t use the oven, and can be dressed up or down depending on what you add to it. The best part is, they’re guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. I made these in the middle of an miserable, stressful week at work and instantly felt a little better. You can’t be upset when you’re eating Rice Krispie Treats. It’s not possible!

Because sometimes, you just want to feel like a kid again

It’s the last week of Marshmallow Madness, and we’ve got a pretty great match-up: margarita and cookies ‘n cream.

For round three, we’ve got a fruity mashup – strawberries against pineapple-rosemary. In retrospect, I wish I had added some basil to the strawberry mallows for a more exotic flavor, but oh well, shoulda coulda woulda.

With spring just around the corner (finally, am I right? I feel like this winter has been particularly Narnia-esque, before Aslan saved the day), I decided to roll these in pastel sanding sugar to give them a nice crunch. Like Peeps, except way, way better.

For round two, we’ve got a favorite childhood flavor – that bright, almost neon red of the Tropical Punch really takes me back – against a more sophisticated adult flavor – salted caramel.

Get your bracket ready, it’s March Madness! Or more appropriately, Marshmallow Madness. Instead of muffins every Monday, I’ll be doing pairs of marshmallows every week. To pick the lucky recipes, I wrote down all the ones from the book on slips of paper and drew names out of a hat.

Here’s what the fates decided. All in all, it’s a pretty great variety.

Key lime pie vs. buttered rum
Kool-Aid vs. caramel swirl
Pineapple rosemary vs. strawberry
Cookies & cream vs. margarita

So without further ado, round 1!

It’s about halfway through November, which means I clearly have no idea how time works, because I’m pretty positive that it was just Labor Day.

Not that I’m complaining,  because fall and winter are really the best seasons for baking, between apples and cranberries and pumpkins and cinnamon and nutmeg and ginger and the endless ways to combine all of them.

One of the most timeless combinations is apple and cinnamon, of course. And these lighter-than-air marshmallows are the perfect way to get your fix.

Carrots in marshmallows? Yes, carrots in marshmallows.

I’m one of those weirdos who doesn’t drink coffee. I’m impervious to the effects of caffeine and the taste is unbearable to me (the smell, though, I am addicted to), so why bother? I do own a French press, though. I use it to make hash browns.

These marshmallows made me wish I drank coffee though. A mocha marshmallow in a steaming cup of coffee? Suddenly Monday doesn’t seem so bad.

Who says you can’t have marshmallows for breakfast?

These marshmallows. THESE MARSHMALLOWS.

Okay, back up. So after I made those vanilla marshmallows, I got really excited and bought the book. It’s incredible and I highly recommend it, and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t usually buy specialty cookbooks. I’m already planning March (Marshmallow) Madness, mainly because the book has a blank bracket for you to fill out, so this is totally going to be a thing.

Back to these marshmallows. They are crazy addictive, as in, I’m going to force myself to bring these in to work tomorrow so that I don’t eat them all.
