Cinnamon Toast Crunch Krispies

I will preface this entire message with:  I love my husband.  He is a great father, partner and best friend.
BUT he is addicted to craigslist.

I don’t know how to make it stop.
For the 3 of you out there who are unaware of what craigslist is…it’s basically an online garage sale, except there really is no limit to what you can sell: junk, valuables, jobs, personal services (if you catch my drift) etc.
Well, my husband is addicted..not to the, a-hem, personal services, but to cheap and/or free stuff.
They say one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.  My husband is the “another” man.
He finds all sorts of free/cheap “treasures” that now reside in our basement or my the side or our house.
Who knew that we needed multiple grills, or loads of bricks, or slightly used televisions?
Well, I certainly didn’t.
I understand that the items that hubby rescues are brought to our loving home with all the best intentions, but somethings gotta give!
If craigslist was around before we got married I might have gotten a glimpse of my husband’s inner-hoarder.  We certainly could have worked a clause into the vows..maybe something like this:
“I promise to love, honor and  cherish you.  And visit craigslist only once a month.”
Right?  That’s fair.
SO yes, it’s become an issue.  Not a serious one, but certainly one that needs to be handled before I find my husband buried under all his free craigslist junk scraping the mold of last March’s cauliflower claiming it can still be eaten.  It’s a fine line folks.
Until I can get the cajones to stage an intervention, I will bury my angst in sugar.
That’s normal, right?
Keeping with the theme of “trashy” here’s a cereal treat that is so bad it’s good.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Krispies
4 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 10.5 oz. bag mini marshmallows + 2 cups mini marshmallows reserved
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white chocolate ( or white almond bark) melted

Spray 9×9 square pan with cooking spray and set aside

In large pot over low heat melt butter.
When melted add the 10.5 oz bag marshmallows. Continue cooking and stirring until melted.
Remove from heat.
Stir in both cereals and reserved 2 cups marshmallows.
Spread in prepared pan and with waxed paper press down evenly.
Drizzle melted white chocolate over top.

I use a ziplock bag to drizzle…

 Let set.

Cut into squares when chocolate is set.
 Store in air-tight container.

Yummmm…comfort food!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Hello. My name is Ed and I am a craigslist-aholic. It has been 20 seconds since the last time I was on craigsllist. My latest project I am looking for is a used door with character to change into a set of shelves. 🙂

I love rice crispy treats and the wife loves Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I think this is a wonderful way to combine both of our loves.

Thank you. now I must go check back in with craigslist again to see what I missed during the time it took me to look at this recipe. 🙂

My husband just sent my an article on someone who "traded" his way through Craig's List. I think he started with a Pez dispenser and 50 trades and 5 years later, ended up with a Porsche. Something like that. Anyhoo…I'm going to make him these bars, hoping that the sugar coma makes him forget abut that article.

PS…who is that naked man in the top comment? 😉

I can totally relate 🙂

I started reading the first line of your post aloud and my husband started laughing and came ocer to sit by me. He, too, is addicted to Craisglist. I'm talking several times a day! Only he's not bring free junk home, he's buying epensive tools that he gets a "good deal" on. help!

I say we stage an intervention. ha ha!

Heheh I love how you tied the recipe into the story 😉 I'm one who would actually LOVE to use Craigslist, but here in Bombay, it's pretty slow!

August 18, 2010 7:21 pm

Oh wow. I need one of these right now! Craigslist can get pretty addictive, I've gotta say…I spent weeks looking for an apt when I lived in ny–and then got sidetracked by all the junk people were giving away!

Your bars look…heavenly!!

holy snap. i LOVE cinnamon toast crunch, must make these asap.

August 18, 2010 5:24 pm

lol, can I tell you I "know" what craigslist is but have never actually been there. I'm not into my own junk let alone someone else's even if it is free. :)What I am into is delish treats like this it's. It's actually kinda like one I make…mine is more like a s'more. Check it out, it was before you may have visited.

(I don't know how to make that a link in my comment. Sorry!)

These look perfectly delicious. You might try the bring something new home and something old has to go approach(it works with clothes).

These look great, cinnamon toast crunch is one of my favorite cereals!

August 17, 2010 9:11 pm

So….will I be seeing you guys on that Hoarders show anytime soon? LOL, just kidding of course. I used to be addicted to ebay for dishes but was able to stop the habit in time. You might want to break his computer.
These bars would turn you into an instant jukie, no problem.

August 17, 2010 7:29 pm

I'm in love! These look absolutely perfect.

August 17, 2010 6:27 pm

This is a fabulous idea! I'm hugely addicted to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, no milk though, just straight out of the box. Can't wait to try these!!

August 17, 2010 6:04 pm

Mmm! What a great idea. I'm thinking of all the different cereals that would be awesome transformed into rice krispie treats!

August 17, 2010 5:58 pm

Ohhhh I would be addicted to that.
