Special K Treats

Special K Treats
(I got this recipe from a friend- Thanks Jennifer :)
1 stick Butter or Margarine
2 cups mini marshmallows or 20 large marshmallows
1 Cup Brown Sugar
4 cups Special K Cereal
In sauce pan melt Butter on low to medium heat, stir in marshmallows & brown sugar, stirring constant until marshmallows are melted.  Keep on low to medium heat, may slightly boil, once marshmallows are melted, continue stirring mixture constantly for 3 minutes (this is a tricky part sometimes, don't let over cook, you will feel it getting thicker, but don't let it get too thick, 3 minutes tops will be fine, do not let it get to a full rumbling've got the heat too high). Take off heat and add in 4 cups of Special K Cereal. Stir until totally covered with mixture. Spray 8 x 8 baking dish with non stick spray and pour in.  Let cool, cut in squares and eat up.  So Yummy!
If you are looking for a Healthy Snack this is not one of them!! :) I do enjoy my treats, {just saying..hehe.}  Just because I love Health & Fitness doesn't mean I don't like treats and comfort foods. I try to eat my best 80% of the time and give myself 20% where I don't worry so much.  I don't usually say to my self "you can't have that" unless I'm doing some sort of challenge or something, because I feel it makes things worse.  You always want what you can't have and then you end up piggin' out like crazy. :) I think it's okay once in a while to have a treat, to make them with your kids, on special occassions or just for no reason once in a while! All things in moderation, right!? If you are looking for more healthier snack options -these are my 80% of the time snacks. Just thought I'd clarify, I do on occasion post yummy treats or my favorite recipes that I don't want to forget & to share.  So, all you health food junkies I hope you don't mind :) this is me!!
