Trix Marshmallow treats and a great romance

Happy Tuesday!

I can't believe that it's been over a week since I have updated
~ I've sat down a million times to add a post and I've gotten side tracked every time.

That's ok,  I've basically caught up on all of my blog reading
and now.. on the bright side,  I have a few blog drafts to use later on this week.

Today started out chilly and overcast
which is why I thought that it would be a great day to make these pretty treats that I saw on Pinterest.

I think that this marshmallow goodness was so much fun..
that the sun wanted to come out and enjoy them too.

By the time they had finished cooling
The clouds had rolled away and the Sun was shining brightly.
I love pretty days like this!

Trix marshmallow treats

1 box of Trix cereal
1 bag of small marshmallows
1/4 cup of butter

Place butter and marshmallows in a bowl
microwave for about 2 or 3 mins
stir in cereal

Pour mixture over greased parchment paper on cookie sheet.
( with a little cooking oil on your hands) Press mixture together
Let set and cut into squares

Easy Peasy!

I am in the mood to visit the book store,  
 I think that Sally and I may venture out to Barnes and Noble to browse the shelves and drink lots of coffee.

Speaking of books
I read a great romance on my Kindle yesterday

It was by an author that I have never read and now I am super excited to check out more of her novels.
To see all of her titles, visit her blog , Karen Erickson Romance here 

I am such a sucker for a good romance!

Have a wonderful night everyone!!
