I Hate Rice Krispie Squares


Ghost Post


A Photographic Journey

Rice Krispie Squares. The good ol' fashioned easy to make cookie. Right? Whatever yo. I'm never making these things again. I blame my overly ambitious nature (insert stifled laughter) that led me to want to make ghost shaped Rice Krispie Squares for tomorrow's Halloween party. The internet provided a recipe, along with the back of the cereal box I didn't buy but looked at in the grocery store. So, it began:

Butter. 1/3 cup.

Melt butter in saucepan. Easy enough.

Get some marshmallows.

Measure out six cups.

Drop them from a great height into the melted butter.

Stir them bitches up.

Accidentally let spoon sink into mixture.

Put some out of focus vanilla extract in there too. 1 teaspoon.

When all stirred, dump in a bowl and start mixing in "Rice Krispies". Eight cups.

It'll be gross and smushy. Perhaps I did not mix it well enough.

Okay, here's the part where things get tricky. The recipe was all, "shape mixture into ghosts". This is not possible. That shit will stick all over you!!! So call my mom and dad and say "Why the hell do these cookies have a reputation for being so easy to make?" Then they will fill you in on the great secret of the Rice Krispie Square that no recipe will tell you: You need to wet a spoon to smash it all down!!

Then nothing will stick! You can even wet your hands and do it if you want!

After that trick was revealed, I was able to smash some down into a tray.

At this point I started trying to smush them into the shape of ghosts, but it didn't really work well and I forgot to take pictures. Then I got frustrated and they came out pretty much like rounded triangles. Next, melt some white chocolate chips!

Then just kind of spread it on the stupid cookies and use some regular chocolate chips for eyes. Toss them in the fridge until tomorrow and vow never to do that again. If you will be in attendance at Pizza Diarist's tomorrow for the Halloween party, I dare you to try one. Mwah ha ha ha haaaaaa!
