Caramel Krispie Bars

These are my all-time favorite marshmallow krispie treats!



Caramel Krispie Bars

2 (8 oz.) bags Kraft Jet-Puffed Caramel & Vanilla Swirled Marshmallows
1 stick butter (8 tablespoons)
8 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies Cereal

Butter the inside of one 13x9x2-inch cake pan, then set the pan aside.

In a large stock-pot, melt the butter over very low heat. (Whenever I make rice krispie bars, I use an 8-quart Teflon coated stock-pot.)

After the butter's melted in the pot, add the marshmallows, and stir until the marshmallows have completely melted.

Remove pot from the heat, add the cereal, and stir until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.

Press the marshmallow/cereal mixture into the buttered pan.

Let bars sit for 2-3 hours, before cutting them.

Yields: 24 bars

Strawberry Lemonade

Another great tasting strawberry lemonade! For this recipe,
I used my own strawberries, which I picked, sweetened with
sugar, then froze them. I use them in place of the store bought
sweetened strawberries.



Strawberry Lemonade

1 (12 oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate

4-1/2 cups water
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen sweetened strawberries, partially thawed

In a large pitcher mix together, the lemonade concentrate and the water.

Stir in the strawberries, then pour the mixture into a blender, and purée until mixture is liquefied.

Strain the lemonade twice, to remove excess seeds from the strawberries.    

Rinse the pitcher, so there aren't any seeds from the straw-
berries in it, then pour the strained strawberry-lemonade back into the pitcher.

To serve, pour strawberry-lemonade in glasses filled with ice.

Yields: 56 ounces of delicious strawberry flavored lemonade!


This is what the lemonade will look like if you don't strain it!
It is a bit thicker, but it will also have seeds from the straw-
berries in it as well.

berries in it, then pour the strained strawberry-lemonade back into the pitcher.

To serve, pour strawberry-lemonade in glasses filled with ice.

Berry Bread

This actually is a dessert which my family enjoys on those
hot summer days. Just mix the thawed, frozen, sweetened
strawberries with the cream, and served over torn pieces
of white bread.



Berry Bread

3-1/2 lbs. sliced frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed

1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
white bread, homemade or store bought, torn into small pieces

I
n a large bowl, add the 3-1/2 lbs. (thawed) sweetened sliced strawberries.

Stir in heavy cream until blended.

Chill in the refrigerator 30 minutes to 1-2 hours.

In serving bowls, add torn pieces of homemade, or store bought white bread.

Pour desired amounts of the berry mixture over each bowl of bread.

Note: If using your own frozen strawberries, you may need to add a bit more granulated sugar, but according to taste. Do this before adding the cream.
The amount of strawberries and cream added; depends upon you.
