What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Mike’s Crispy Treats
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 540 calories, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I have really mixed feelings about this treat. They are extremely gooey, but easy to make. I had never tasted Fruit Loops, and I thought they gave the bars a fruity flavor, but it was the white almond bark that I truly loved. Nicole didn’t like the flavor of the rainbow mini marshmallows. I didn’t taste them at all. I just tasted marshmallow and fruitiness and white chocolate. I think I would pass on this recipe in the future, as they weren’t a big wow for this girl.

Here are the ingredients that I used to create this recipe. 

 I began by buttering my grandma's old 9 x 13 pan.

I heated some butter in Ree's fabulous pan. 

In the same pan, I added all of the white marshmallows.

 I added in the Fruit Loops

 and the salt.

 I gently stirred in the rainbow marshmallows.

 I sprayed my fingers with nonstick spray,
 so I could spread this gooeyness out in the pan.

 I cut them into squares,
which sounds easier than it really was to do.
For some reason, I keep thinking of Easter.

I began melting the white almond bark, 
but it cannot be added to the bars until they 
are completely cooled. 

 It's ready to go.  Now, I had a dilemma.
The recipe says to dip half into the chocolate,
but the photo has her striping the bars with
the chocolate. I just frosted the top and called
it a day!  Hers are beautiful - mine are not.

 Sad and pitiful looking!
(but I bet they taste the same)
**Notice that I covered the counter with foil
(today's speedy cleanup tip)

This one looks pretty good.
