The Chefs are in.

Aren't my little Chefs adorable? You don't have to answer that. Although this is the first picture in a long time that I actually have all eight eyes looking in the right direction. So maybe you do have to answer that. . .Common on, aren't they cute??!? Enough about those trouble makers. . . .We've been at it again and today we found a yummy yum recipe that we wanted to share. Found it at Picky Palate and actually borrowed this picture right off her blog. Can I do that? She likes to call her creation, "If the Easter bunny brought you too much candy." I like to call it, "QUICK! Get it out of your house before trouble starts calling!" It's a little deceiving. I thought for sure that this little treaty treat was strictly for the kids. . .after all I'm not all that into marshmallows. . .oh but oh . . .I am. I tweaked the recipe just a little. First I cut it in half. I switched the chocolate chips to Reese chips and used 8 snickers on top. Yes it is to die for. Love love love it! Did I say I LOVE it? Well I do! Here are my little lovelies enjoying our cooking experience and devouring their treaty treat. Max ended the night by saying, "Max Chef is NOW DONE, Thank you!" So Thank you and ENJOY!Extreme Toasted Marshmallow Candy Bar Rice Crispy Treats
12 Cups toasted rice crispy cereal2
10.5 oz bags mini marshmallows
6 Tablespoons butter
1 Cup chocolate chips
3 Cups mini marshmallows
10 mini Twix candy bars, chopped
10 mini Snicker candy bars, chopped

1. Prepare rice crispy treats according to directions on the cereal box, I doubled recipe. Press into a 9X13 inch baking dish. It will be filled close to the top.
2. Preheat oven's broiler and position top rack in middle of oven not top (if rack is too close to the broiler, the marshmallows burn instead of slowly turning golden). Sprinkle chocolate chips over rice crispy treats. Sprinkle 3 Cups mini marshmallows over top. Broil in oven just until marshmallows start to puff and turn golden. Watch very carefully, it happens quick!
3. Remove from oven and press chopped candy bars over toasted marshmallows. Let cool for 1 hour before serving. Enjoy!!
