The April Fool
The Soup Lady does not approve of fooling people. None but the vulgarian would seek to embarrass someone by making them look the fool. This is the very same reason that the Soup Lady does not go for magic shows, even if they feature cute white tiger cubs. However, all restrcitions on tricking people may be suspended when it comes to Food Impostors.
What happier way to celebrate a day of trickery that to create food that looks like other food! This page gives a wide variety of inspirations for April Fooling At the Dinner Table, but the overall end effect is just a wee bit uncouth, don't you agree?
No, The Soup Lady would have to recommend a more refined Food Impostor: chicken legs made from rice krispies. Thank me later.
3 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 package (10 oz, about 40 marshmallows)
or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups KELLOGG'S® RICE KRISPIES® cereal
1 jar Peanut butter
1 box KELLOGG'S® COCOA KRISPIES® cereal
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt margarine and marshmallows on HIGH for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Stir mixture until smooth.
Add Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal, stirring until well coated. When slightly cooled, shape cereal mixture into drumstick shapes using buttered hands. Place on waxed paper or a surface coated with cooking spray. Allow to cool.
Spread peanut butter over top of each drumstick, dip in Kellogg's® Cocoa Krispies® cereal.
The Soup Lady preferred to heat the peanut butter in the microwave to make spreading easier. Yes, it requies a bit of artfullness to shape a drumstick out of the primordial mixture, but you'd be surprised how quickly you get into it.
This recipe is straight from the official Kellogg's® Rice Krispies Treats® website. Note the suspicious lack of nutritional information such as fat and calorie content. That can't be good.
