I figured I'd make a sweet treat for desert tonight and thought these Rice Krispie Treats were easy enough. (Meanwhile, I have made her cupcakes with NO problems; they are awesome and easy!)
While attempting to melt the marshmallows, I made the caramel for the ganache. THAT came out fine. (go figure) but as Im whisking it together, I set the pot down and the stupid whisk flips out of the caramel, splashing scalding hot caramel on my fingers.
*(small font = sarcasm)
Luckily it hardened instantly so I could pick it right off, and I ran my hand under cool water. I knew I had some burn cream so I ran to the bathroom cabinet and applied that. This isn't my first rodeo. I knew not to use butter or oil. (Does anyone still think thats a good idea?)
Meanwhile the marshmallows continue to NOT melt. What the heck are these things made of?!?! And eww, do I want to eat them now knowing they won't melt???
So I pull the burnt marshmallows off the stove and use Siri to text my neighbors who (thankgod) were home and who's husband is a Physical Therapist so he brought over his med kit and patched me up. I had the supplies, its just really hard to do one handed!!!
So after I'm all mummified, I thought I'd bypass the stove and just melt the marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl.
(Seriously?!?! What are these things made from!?!?!?)
I 'nuke them on defrost about 2 minutes at a time so they wouldn't burn. (*snort*) THIS is what I end up with at the end of this attempt:
Here's my yummy caramel and my sad hand together again:
But on the upside to today...my granola came out PERFECT!!! (I was low on honey so I added syrup!- YUM!) I also crushed up some cocoa almonds and sprinkled in it. Can't wait to have my yogurt tomorrow morning with homemade granola!
