Today, I stopped at Target on my way back from school, and they had CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOWS!!! They were with the seasonal/halloween stuff and were only 99cents so I bought a bag, then immediately went to the grocery store and bought some rice krisipies cereal (not that brand though). The recipe is the same as always:
Melt 1/4cup butter over low heat, stir in marshmallows, when completely melted add 6 cups of cereal.
* I always go a little easy on the cereal, so the treats are extra marshmallow-y.
* I know you can make these in the microwave, but I always use the stove because I don't have a large enough microwaveable-safe bowl.
These are AMAZING! I thought when they melted, the marshmallows wouldn't be very chocolaty but they were VERY. And, they are different in flavor than Coco Pebbles treats. I also sprinkled some orange sprinkles over the final product for a more festive look. (You can't really taste the sprinkles though)

This is pretty much the most exciting thing ever. My friend Nirvana's birthday was yesterday and she loves Cinderella, and being treated like a princess, so I thought I should make her a Castle Cake!! I got some ideas off of the internet, basically I just needed to know how to make towers (two ice cream cones, icing-glued together!). I used two boxes of french vanilla cake mix, and one strawberry icing and one funfetti icing. Some of the batter I dyed pink with food coloring to make it more fun!! And I used smarties and hershey's chocolate to decorate!! Also, I got three aluminum ramekin type things from a flea market, and used them to make the (upside-down) heart shaped door!
