So I came to the United States when I was 13 years old. That means I've missed out on some of your "typical" childhood memories: like watching Princess Bride, going to Disney Land, watching Sunday morning cartoons (or is it Saturday?) and making Rice Crispy Treats!
I've tried several times to watch Princess Bride, but I just don't get it. What I get, however, is the amazing taste of rice crispy treats. I've enjoyed them several times when Katie from work brought them into the office and when Jenn gave me one for Valentine's day. Last Friday, though, I finally got to see how they are made in person at Jason's wine party!
This was such a simple recipe to follow! Melt 2 sticks of butter, add 3 bags of marshmallows, mix till everything is melted. Add 12 cups of rice crispy treats. Combine.
Pour 1/2 of the mixture into 13x9 container, sprinkle with 1 cup of chocolate chips, add the 2nd half of the mixture and sprinkle with another cup of chocolate chips. Let everything set for 10 minutes. Cut into squares and enjoy.
What are some of your favorite memories of growing up in America?
