I love when my parents come to visit. They live on the other side of the state so we do not get to see them as often as we would like.
This trip my Mom showed up with a pile of recipe ideas. I had forewarned her that I was looking forward to having her in the kitchen with me.
She came prepared! The first recipe she wanted to make was Salty and Sweet Ruffles Marshmallow Treats.
I have to admit I thought she had lost her mind. Don’t get me wrong I love marshmallow treats but making them with potato chips had never even crossed my mind.
She told me that she was sure the sweet and salty combination would be absolutely amazing. This from a woman who LOVES potato chips!
Who am I to tell my Mom no and that she is crazy….I might have thought it a few times but I tried to hold it back for the most part 🙂
I hate to admit it in writing but my Mom was right…yes Mom you can totally print that and show it to me every time I disagree with you 🙂
The combination of salty and sweet was well really good. I kept going back for another piece because the flavor was so not what I expected.
I am interested to try and make a few other adaptions of this recipe. Keep an eye out for future interesting marshmallow treats. *Have you made any fun marshmallow treats? I would love to hear about them!
Ruffles Marshmallow Treats
3 tbsp butter
4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups crushed Ruffles
This has to be the best part of this recipe! You have to crush the Ruffles so they are bite size pieces. If you are stressed or need to let off some steam crushing Ruffles with a rolling pin is a lot of fun!
1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat, stir in marshmallows until melted
2. Remove from heat and add in Ruffles, stir together
3. Press into 9X9 greased pan
4. Allow to cool, cut into pieces
