mugshot Monday and MMMMmmmm, oh MY.....

Guess what my breakfast was, 2 seconds ago?  YES.  The very chocolaty goodness you see there.  It is the perfect summer UNbaked treat, just warm some stuff in a saucepan, mix, freeze and when done keep them cool in the fridge.

I loved making marshmallow treats when I was a kid.  Mix rice crispies with something like marshmallow and margerine, super UN-healthy, and marshmallows are made with gelatin which is the gunk they scrape off the slaughterhouse floor.  (Sorry to turn your stomach, but if you are not a vegetarian you might be eating some enormously nasty things :)

BUT even if that was not true, these treats are a million times better. Peanut butter, chocolate, honey, YUM! ****

In other news, the mugs below may look like what I posted a few days ago, and YES!  They are variations.... have an awesome Monday!

(new pottery by Gary Rith)

gluten-free vegan or vegetarian rice crispy treats

-Lay a sheet of wax paper onto a cookie sheet
-in a bowl stir 3 cups of rice crispies, or even better Koala crisp chocolate rice cereal with a half cup of chocolate chips (get dairy-free):  optional, also add half cup of nuts or even some coconut
-in a saucepan warm on medium 1/2 cup plus 2 TBS peanut butter, 1/2 cup honey or molasses or maple syrup or agave (some vegans don't like to use honey), dash of salt and 2 teas vanilla
-when the peanut butter mix is heated and stirred smooth which only takes a couple of minutes, turn off heat and pour in the rice crispy mix and stir together thoroughly--the choco chips start to melt, and it becomes a big, lovely mixed mess
-use a spatula, smooth the mixture out onto the wax paper, then freeze for a half hour
-slice into bars
-store in freezer or fridge

chocolate rice krispy treats... sounds delicious (and so easy to make!)
I like the green/black mug combo.

Those sound really good. So much better than making them with marshmallows which I ALWAYS thought were nasty.
