Some days I have trouble getting my act together…like a real adult person.
But when I start doing adult-type stuff I get side tracked…by stuff like candy and Real World reruns.
I am now 36, which I guess makes me a real-life adult ~ which is good because I can eat cake for dinner and go to bed whenever I want…
BUT it stinks because you are expected to do responsible-ish stuff, like laundry and pay bills.
I see other moms who seem way more adult than I am…
They talk about their home owners insurance and medical savings plans. They save for vacations and sign their kids up for violin.
Grown-ass mommy stuff.
I wonder when it’s gonna hit me. Because I don’t feel like a grown up. I feel a little like an adult imposter.
When discussions of home improvement projects and grocery coupons arise I nod and throw in the occasional “oh yes, I agree” to make it look like I get it.
That I am part of the adult club.
Unfortunately, while I am agreeing and nodding I am really thinking about OPI shatter polish and The Hunger Games.
Case in point, my obsession with Rice Krispie Treats. I could eat them all day every day. I love them.
I even have a whole category on my site for them.
They aren’t necessarily an adult dessert. Every time someone asks me to bring a dessert for a party, I will offer up the krispie treat…which I always follow with, “the kids will love them”. Translate that in to, “I will bring krispie treats because I love them and don’t want to share with the children”.
So I have now come up with another version. They’re easy. And delicious. AND you don’t have to shop in the produce section of the supermarket to make them, which is a very adult place to shop…you get to go down the candy and cereal aisle. Best idea ever!
Butterfinger Krispie Treats.
I mixed together Rice Krispies and Rice Chex. But you could certainly do it all krispies or all chex.
But chop up 8 fun sized Butterfinger bars….
Add them in when you pour your cereal into the melted marshmallow.
Press into your prepared pan.
Then take some chocolate chips and peanut butter and melt them together.
Drizzle that on top of your krispies.
There you have it. I popped them in the fridge for 15 minutes to set up the chocolate, but serve at room temperature, because there’s nothing worse than a hard krispie treat.
