Over the Counter #69

The latest book to catch my eye this week as it passed over my library counter and under my scanner was The Rice Krispie Treats™ Cookbook by Norman Kolpas.

Really, who doesn't love Rice Krispies Treats™? I was always guilty of adding more marshmallows than the recipe called for. And I still do!

From Weldon Owen Publishing:

"Memories are made when grownups and children prepare Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats together. They create not only delicious food but also delightful moments that will always be remembered and cherished. Why are Rice Krispies Treats so widely loved? There's the yummy taste, of course, combining toasted rice and sweet marshmallows. And who can forget that crunchy, gooey texture? Rice Krispies Treats are also so easy and fun to make that they invite grownups and kids alike to get imaginative with the recipe, adding other ingredients and shaping and decorating the mixture to make all sorts of original creations. Throughout the book, you'll also find great tips and how-to instructions for making Rice Krispies Treats easily and creatively. And the book is filled with beautiful, fun images from the Kellogg Archives that will bring grownups back to their own childhoods! This full-color book shares kitchen-tested recipes for 40 different, delicious versions of Rice Krispies Treats—plus dozens more ideas to inspire your own variations. Instructions and photos guide you in how to make, shape, and decorate your own versions, as well as wrap or pack them as gifts everyone will love. So open the pages and start making memories!

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)

That's not for me - I've never eaten or made a Rice Krispies treat.
