The Simplest Treat You'll Ever Meet

I've been working kind of a lot lately. This generally means less traipsing around on dates in dresses and a lot more sweatpants and Netflix. I'm just being honest here.

What I can typically count on to liven me up even in my most tired state is spending wee bit of time in the kitchen making something delicious and listening to some sick jams. Recently, I've been experimenting with some delicious watermelon mocktails, this bomb kale salad I found, and last but certainly not least some simple rice krispie treats. The recipe really couldn't be easier. I tend to switch it up every time I make them and generally just eyeball the ingredients, but here's a rough estimate below. The extra kick? A little sea salt on top. I generally find that a little sea salt on most desserts goes a long way. Just me?

5 cups Rice Krispies
1 jar of marshmallow creme (7-8 oz) or 10oz of marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
A sprinkle of sea salt

Melt butter and marshmallow creme in a large sauce pan. Stir in Rice Krispies 2 cups at a time until fully coated. Transfer to a pre-greased 13x9 inch glass pan. Coat a spatula head in butter and press treats down firmly to create an even layer. Sprinkle with sea salt and let cool. 

Try experimenting with some adorable sprinkles, a drizzle of caramel, or oreos (these are pretty incredible).

The trick is not to eat all of them at once. Oops, I just ate one for breakfast. Sorry Mom!
