You might think my vice would be chocolate based on this blog, my eating habits/daily chocolate consumption, or any number of things I say that allude to chocolate holding a very prominent place in my heart and stomach.

I do love me some chocolate, but cinnamon is the secret (or not so secret) ingredient in the more than half of my favorite desserts. I can't even make coffee cake or cinnamon rolls with any frequency anymore because I will help myself to five servings without thinking twice. All self-control goes out the window.

So, let's talk about Cinnamon Chex. I'm not sure where Cinnamon Chex has been all my life, but I am rapidly making up for lost time. These Browned Butter Churro Crispy Treats are my new favorite recipe (Chex=Crispy, Rice Krispies = Krispy?).

I've probably made them 10 times in the past month. They are incredibly easy, and the flavor is something no one is expecting since it's reminiscent of Rice Krispies, but made with Chex and BROWNED BUTTER. It is the perfect, no-bake dessert to fix when you need something in a pinch and don't feel like turning on your oven or breaking out the mixer.

The only remotely difficult part is browning the butter, and I promise once you get the hang of it, browning butter won't be a deterrent in the least. The key is that you have to watch the butter. Do not multitask when making browned butter. Like all serial multitaskers, I like to think that because I multitask all the time I've mastered the art of it. Nope. We can put this in the long list of things that should not be multitasked. I've provided a few pictures and examples below, but there are also great tutorials here and here.

The last thing I will say about this recipe is that it nails the crisp to marshmallow ratio that is essential to any krispy/crispy dessert. Your treat should not crack in half when you break it apart. If this happens, you might as well be eating a cereal bar. It should bend. That said, eating these for breakfast is perfectly acceptable since they are, after all, made with cereal.


Browned Butter Churro Crispy Treats
Recipe from Well Plated by Erin


6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon Imperial Sugar Dark Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
10 ounces miniature marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
6 cups Cinnamon Chex

  1. Butter or coat with non-stick spray an 8-inch square pan.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Continue to heat until butter melts, then foams, then turns clear golden, then starts to turn brown and smell nutty. Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from bottom as you do. Watch it carefully, especially in last minute, to ensure butter does not burn. As soon as butter turns light brown, turn off heat, then stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
  3. Add marshmallows and stir to melt. The heat of melted butter should be enough to melt marshmallows, but if necessary, turn heat on low and stir until marshmallows are smooth and no white streaks remain.
  4. Remove pot from stove and stir in the cereal and salt. As soon as cereal is coated, spread it quickly into prepared pan. To spread cereal to corners, lightly coat a sheet of wax paper with cooking, then evenly press it into pan corners. Let cool 15 minutes, cut into bars and serve.
Note: The steps below show examples from various points the process. They do not correspond directly with each stage, but your butter will look like all of these during the process. I removed my butter shortly after the second to bottom image. When it starts to look like this keep stirring and keep a very close eye on it. It's almost done, and it goes from brown to burnt faster than you'd expect!

I want to say thank you to Dr Larry for the good thing he has done for me though I am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but I can't hide my happiness and my Joy so I have to share it with the world.
My marriage crashed about two years ago and I tried all I could within my powers to restore it but to no avail. I saw different posts and testimonies about the good things Dr Larry has been doing so I decided to give it a try. Though he is always a busy man, when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored and just like he said my marriage was restored, since then I am happy and I am living happily in my marriage. I am so grateful to Dr Larry you can always contact him here: assurancesolutionhome@gmail. com or u can WhatsApp him via +1(424)-261-8520  website

Balancing Toys: Playful Tools for Developing Coordination and Focus

Balance toys are not just entertaining playthings; they're valuable tools for fostering a child's physical and cognitive development. These captivating toys come in various shapes and sizes, challenging youngsters to stabilize and coordinate their movements in order to keep them upright.

These toys serve as excellent aids in refining a child's fine and gross motor skills. As they manipulate these objects, children learn to control their hand-eye coordination, enhance their sense of balance, and develop a deeper understanding of spatial relationships. This process lays the foundation for future physical activities and sports.

Furthermore, balance toys encourage focus and concentration. As children engage in the task of maintaining equilibrium, they are honing their attention spans and improving their ability to concentrate on specific tasks. This skillset is invaluable for academic pursuits and later endeavors in life.

Beyond their physical and cognitive benefits, balance toys also stimulate creativity and imagination. Children often invent imaginative games and scenarios involving these toys, allowing them to explore new worlds and ideas.

Parents and educators alike appreciate the multifaceted advantages of balance toys. They provide an enjoyable and enriching way for children to develop fundamental skills that will serve them well throughout their lives. So, whether it's a wobbly board, a rocking horse, or a balance beam, investing in these toys is an investment in a child's holistic development.

Chocolate therapy is a concept that involves the consumption of chocolate, particularly dark chocolate, as a means of promoting relaxation and mood enhancement. It is based on the idea that certain compounds in chocolate, such as serotonin precursors and endorphin stimulators, may contribute to a sense of well-being and pleasure. While not a formal therapeutic treatment, many people indulge in chocolate for its potential mood-boosting effects.
