Nourishing Mondays: Smore Cereal Treats

Reported by foodem.com, the online wholesale food marketplace-

This past weekend was my little brother’s high school graduation party. He loves, loves, loves Rice Krispy treats, so for dessert no other choice would do, I decided to make him a variety of his favorite homemade treats.

Rice Krispy Treats are an instant crowd-pleaser, so I know this would be an even better dessert than the typical cake. However, if you buy them pre-made from the store, they can be loaded with chemicals and preservatives and overly processed.

They are so easy to make and require only a few ingredients, so I immediately knew I had to make them for myself. Also when homemade you have the freedom to experiment with flavor combinations for yourself.

For this party I made six different types of treats. They were all delicious and got rave reviews! But by the end of the night it was clear that one treat had bested the rest of them. There weren’t even crumbs left over to prove their former existence. Today I am giving you the recipe to this winning dessert. Feel free to make it your own and experiment with other cereals or add-ins. I promise your guests will love them and the ingredients and effort are minimal.

Smore Cereal Treats
¼ cup butter
1 bag mini marshmallows plus 1 cup
1 box Golden Graham cereal
1 ½ cups chocolate chips

Melt the butter in a large pot on high heat. Then remove from heat and add in the bag of marshmallows. Coat the marshmallows with butter and return to the high heat. Melt the marshmallows, stirring constantly. Once completely melted take the marshmallows off the heat and stir into the cereal.

Once completely incorporated add in half of the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 9 X 14 pan quickly. The longer they cool, the harder they get so make sure to get them into the pan right away. Sprinkle the remaining marshmallows and chocolate chips on top. Wait an hour for them to cool, and then cut and serve!

Enjoy and stay tuned for more delightful Nourishing Monday recipes.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
