Small, But Significant, Non-Scale Victory

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Sunday my son-in-law arrived with the grandkids for me to watch and a box of Rice Krispies and a bag of mini-marshmallows. Normally, Rice Krispie Treats are not in my cooking repertoire, but since I had a request, complete with most of the ingredients, I did it. Kids helped to measure, pour, push microwave buttons while standing on the step stool, mix, pat down, and clean up. I cut the treats into squares. Now how could that be a victory?

Well, for years when a box said it served 4, two of us would eat it all. When the recipe said it makes 12 muffins I said it was wrong, it could only make 8. I remember thinking that the manufacturer always overstated the number of servings.

I cut the resulting treats into 25 squares. I read the recipe. It said makes 20 squares!!

Edit: That was 6 cups of Rice Krispies and 5.5 cups mini-marshmallows with 3 Tablespoons Smart Balance Buttery Spread. I hope no one bursts my bubble and tells me the manufacturer has increased the serving size.
