Yesterday I had an attack.
A huge craving attack. You know, the kind where you can’t really focus on anything else, your brain is just filled with images and thoughts of that o-n-e obsession. I think my eye might have even started to twitch.
Rice Krispie Treats.
I don’t know where that craving came from, but it hit me like a ton of bricks. And I guess that’s the point of a craving, they just kind of come out of no where.
The problem though with cravings is that the thing you want usually comes in a big batch. In order to satisfy my rice krispie treat craving I’d have to make a whole pan of treats. And that’s not really what I want to do. I just want one treat to sink my teeth in to and then I can move on. I don’t need 24 treats…that could just be dangerous.
So there was only one option for me. Figure out a way to make just one krispie treat.
Of course though when I go to my pantry to grab my ingredients I don’t have rice krispie cereal…guess I had a craving for those at breakfast too. But that’s ok because there was a brand new box of cocoa puff glaring me in the face. Mmmm…chocolate!
So here it is. Marshmallow and chocolate. In a single serving treat!
- 1/2 cup cocoa puffs
- 2 1/2 marshmallows
- 1 teaspoon mini chocolate chips
- Put all ingredients in a bowl that's been sprayed with cooking spray. Place in the microwave and heat on high for 45 seconds. Remove from microwave stir to coat cereal with melted marshmallow and place mixture in a cupcake mold. Smoosh down so that the treat gets completely molded together but not enough to crush the cereal. Remove from cupcake mold and gobble up.
