Birthday Boy

Hey Everyone..
We ha our first bday celebration married - yay!
We were actually more low key than ever. Oh no - we are becoming an old married
couple, haha!
Doug doesn't like attention on his bday - but as soon as our Sunday Funday group found out his bday was the next day - this is what happened ;-)

When we got home I was all wifey and made him this delish and very thoughtful cake. This is all that is left - one piece!

It's a rice crispy cake! Basically rice crispy tests that use cake mix. Doug loves marshmallows and rice crispy treats are another fave so it worked. Recipe was ├╝ber simple! Here ya go:
3 Tbsp. butter
1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
1/3 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a batter!)
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press into a baking dish (any size will do) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.
* I used all GF items so I Coolout enjoy as well *
His bday was actually on that Monday. I had to work, s o he had his first "Mandate Monday" as a married man. "Mandate Monday" is the way he spends his day off with his guy friends. I gave it that name - it's so cute. They have lunch and see a movie. On occasion grab a drink- all while I am at work - so we never miss any time together! You should be a good wifey and let your hubby have one.
Hope you enjoy the recipe!
Mrs. Green
