Roasted Marshmallow Krispie Squares

Rice Krispie squares are, along with Greek salad, Watermelon, and corn on the cob, one of those foods that I could keep eating as long as it was put in front of me. I would waste you in an eating competition of any of them. Roasted marshmallows come in a close second, though there is certainly a finite amount anyone can or should eat. Don't marshmallows kind of feel like they expand in your stomach after you eat them?

Well don't let that last gross image dissuade you from trying my little experiment from yesterday. Turns out that Rice Krispie squares plus a marshmallow crust that goes under the broiler for a scant minute is a real winner. Just make your squares as you normally would (I really hope you don't make them with the fruity marshmallows, shudder) and then quite simply cover the big slab of treats with little (or maybe big?) marshmallows and pop under the broiler in your oven. I kept them in until a little smoke came off the marshmallows. The middle ones then have that smoky burn-y campfire flavour and then the outside ones are less overdone for those who don't love the burnt ones (there's always someone around the campfire who likes the burnt ones).
