Reunions are just as much about the food on the table, as they are the people that bring the
"potluck" treats and dishes for everyone to sample and chow down on.
My stepmom is a fantastic cook, a wonderful lady and a great mom...
she brought these tasty, lip smackin, crunchy,caramel bites of yumminess to our reunion....I had
NO intention on eating any because I am not a huge fan of marshmallows. After
watching everyone else devoir them, fight over them and beg for more, I figured
I must be missing out, so I gave in and took a bite...well one bite and I was hooked, 5 marshmallows later, I decided I had better stop............NEEDLESS to say, they were AMAZING!
They are gooey, sticky and sweet...just like a good caramel marshmallow should be.
Give them a try..........even if you DON'T like marshmallows, you might like these!
Grandma Kathy's Marshmallow Krispies
1 bag regular sized marshmallows
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pkg caramels, with wrappers removed
1 cube butter (real butter)
1 box of rice crispies (you may or may not use the entire box)
Place butter, caramels and milk in a medium saucepan. Melt ingredient, stirring continuously. Cool slightly. Pour some rice krispies into a mixing bowl. Set aside. Using a skewer or fork, dip each marshmallow into caramel and then roll in rice krispies until marshmallows are completely covered. Place finished marshmallows onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with pan coating. Continue process until all marshmallows are dipped or until caramel is gone...whichever comes first. Cool and EAT! Great for those holiday parties that are coming up...just around the corner, OR make them just for fun!
