We finally have some cooler temperatures in Texas and it's a joy to be outside for tea! Please join me for some yummy treats. I've used my lady vase and filled her "hat" with some pretty mums.
This lovely cream colored teacup was from my friend Debbie, who is Stephanie's mom, from Stephanie's first teacup exchange at the The Enchanting Rose. I think of Debbie every time I use this Lenox teacup as it goes with anything, and it looks so pretty with my cottage girl teapot that my mom found from a thrift shop and gave to me.
I found the recipe for these grown-up marshmallow treats from the Parade magazine supplement from the Dallas Morning News. The recipe is from Stephanie Banya's cookbook Treat: 50 Recipes for No-Bake Marshmallow Treats. They make for an easy Fall treat!
Chocolate, Caramel and Peanut Treats
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided (I used salted butter)
1 (16-oz) pkg marshmallows
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons caramel sauce, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt (I omitted)
6 cups chocolate flavor or regular crisp rice cereal
1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts
Melt chocolate in microwave.
Grease bottom and sides of a 13 x 9" baking dish with 1 Tablespoon butter.
Melt remaining 5 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows, reduce heat to low, cover and let stand 3-5 minutes or until marshmallows soften. Add 1/4 cup caramel sauce, vanilla, and salt; stir until smooth. Fold in cereal.
Spread mixture into prepared dish; spread evenly with a piece of waxed paper. Drizzle with chocolate and remaining 2 Tablespoons caramel; top with peanuts. Let stand 15 minutes (mine took longer!) or until firm.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
