Sweet and Sinful

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It was ridiculously hot here and I am hoping that things cool off a little bit this week and that we get some MUCH needed rain!

I have a confession...I rarely cook, and by rarely, I mean never.  Rob took over cooking when I became pregnant this past winter.  I had a hard time giving that up because I felt like it was part of my "job description" being a stay at home mom.  But, I've been learning to let go of unnecessary guilt in my life.  Rob enjoys cooking, I don't so much.  He's good at it too, and it works for us.  There are some nights when I cook, but it is rare, and that's ok.

Anyway, I do like to bake, and I have a sweet tooth.  I would probably bake more if it wasn't so tempting to have sweet things just sitting around the house.  So, I like when there is an excuse for baking- like having company or going to someone's house and bringing dessert.  But, in the summer it is too hot to turn on the oven.

I have an amazing and easy no-bake recipe to share, but I have to warn you, it is just downright sinful.  But, every time I make it, people freak out about it.  And I can't take any credit for it, it comes from one of my closest and dearest friends, Lindsey.  She is always making great desserts and I am always stealing her recipes.

I call these Snickers Crispix Treats...

1 box Crispix cereal
1 bag mini marshmellows
1 stick butter
5 chopped up snickers bars (yes, that's right, 5 snickers bars)

Melt the butter with 2 of the chopped up snickers and stir until melted

{Rob came in at this point and said, "is that butter and snickers bars?"  Yes, yes it is}

Add the marshmellows, stir until melted 

Take of the heat and add the cereal and the remaining bars.  Press into well-greased 9x13 pan. 

The best thing about these are that there are chunnks of snickers bars mixed in.  They are truly sinful.  Enjoy!!
