Marshmallow rice krispie treats with chocolate ganache. Because David and I are totally kids at heart. I am quite certain people would think us bonkers if they happened to peek in on one of our more childish moments. (And I’m not just talking about digging into these chocolate rice krispie treats.)
I don’t even know how to describe those moments that make me so happy, because they are just too silly when you say them out loud. Suffice it to say that they usually involve dancing, funny faces, inappropriate sounds, terrible singing, poking and/or lots of giggles. It is those moments that make me so grateful for David–for having found someone with whom I can so utterly let go and just BE. No filters, no costume, no disguise, no correction, no second guessing. None. And I am equally grateful that I can be that for him. If only every day was like that–that the world could see us all–each of us in our own ridiculousness.
That we could dance a jig while stirring marshmallows into butter. That we could shout “SON OF A BITCH, POUR ME A DRINK” just because we have that one line from that one song playing loop da’ loop in our head and it really is a great song. That we could spin another person round and round just because they aren’t smiling enough.
I had not had marshmallow rice krispie treats with chocolate in ages, but for whatever reason, David and I had a craving. These rice krispies are good with any toppings you can imagine… we wanted something close to the original, because we just. DID. Tons of ooey gooey marshmallows. And even when I got back from a business trip 6 days later, the rice krispie treats were still soft. (And I had demolished two within 20 minutes of walking in the door.)
So make some rice krispie treats this week, grab a friend and dance them round and round, and find a moment to be ridiculous!
