Afterschool Special Recipe: Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats

Getting ready to head to JMT's for a "Big Brother" finale viewing party with my own Bra-Gade last night, I decided I needed to whip up a treat befitting one of the most deliciously trashy shows on television. Scoping my cabinets, I found just what I needed:

Sugar cereal: Check.
Butter: Check.
Marshmallows: Check.

Everything I need to make a nouveau rice krispie treat. Perfectamundo!

A few years ago I started experimenting with new versions of the classic lunchbox treat and discovered that Cinnamon Toast Crunch, melted marshmallows and a little extra nutmeg yielded a scrumptious, sugary treat that hints at Egg Nog.

3 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine
1 10 oz. package marshmallows
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
6 cups (1 box) Cinnamon Toast Crunch

To make Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats, start by lightly greasing a 9 by 13 pan. Then, in a large pot, melt one 10 oz. bag of marshmallows and 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter over medium heat. When melted, add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 a teaspoon nutmeg. Remove from heat and add 1 box (6 cups) of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Stir until well combined.

Lightly press into your prepared pan and allow to cool before cutting into squares.

Then be prepared for a major sugar rush which can lead to all kinds of shenanigans, i.e. pretending your trapped under a glass table (and she wasn't even drunk).

Another summer of The Chenbot, 3am "Big Brother After Dark" bedtimes and some of the best, mindless entertainment TV has to offer has come to an end. Peace out, Meow Meow. We'll miss you.
