Have you ever noticed it’s the little things in life that make us feel like dancin’ a little jig? Such is the case with today’s recipe. Please grab smelling salts to help get over the shock of me, Liz, giving you a recipe, and continue on to the bestest afternoon snack the world has known.
My mother used to make these for us after school. Like many of her recipes, I’ve often wondered if she dreamed this up on her own. If so, how? If not, who shall we deem King or Queen of all things ooey, gooey and marshmallow-y?!? These could not be more simple or more tasty. And let’s all remember: marshmallows are FAT-FREE
- Saltine crackers (regular or whole wheat)
Here’s how to make ‘em:
Set oven to high broil. Place desired number of crackers on a baking sheet. Top each cracker with a marshmallow. Add a dab of butter to the top of each marshmallow. (The butter could easily be omitted if you so choose.) Carefully place under the broiler. DO NOT LEAVE THE ROOM!! Keep an eagle eye on these babies. Depending on your oven, they could be ready in under a minute. When the marshmallows begin to bubble and turn golden brown, remove from oven. Allow to cool slightly (the marshmallow will begin to collapse onto the cracker (YUMMM), and DEVOUR!
