Today when I was having my morning coffee, I saw something beautiful outside from our big glass window. You want to know what was that?
I saw the first signs of autumn. Yes, autumn is finally knocking on our doors. And here is the proof of what I mean! Image courtesy: Husband. 🙂
Lush green leaves are turning into red-orange. Wow! That’s such a beauty of nature.
And after watching this, I suddenly started to realize that nights and mornings are getting a bit cooler. I knew that autumn would be here soon, but I didn’t know it would be so quick. YES! You wouldn’t believe that this tree here has changed its color overnight.
When I told hubby that this tree changed its color overnight, he said, “No, it’s been a couple of days, I think you noticed it closely only today.” So I might be wrong here that this tree has changed its color in just 24 hours.
But I still feel that yesterday morning when I saw this tree it was full green. Alright, I guess, I am overthinking all this. The good news is that this tree near our home gave us the clue that we are officially entering the Fall.
And so because of the colder nights, waking up early in the mornings is getting even more difficult. Seriously, it’s becoming tougher and tougher to get out of the bed these days.
Really, who wants to leave cozy warmth of a blanket. No one, I assume. Every morning I so wish that, “6:30 am comes again perhaps after 3 hours time — so that I’ll have 3 more hours to sleep.” 😉
Believe me, it’s gonna be even tougher when winter arrives. But I will manage it somehow, like I always have. And then I would drink a steaming cup of coffee, and that would certainly help me. How about you guys?
I am so sorry if I’m making you sleepy too. Alright, now it’s my responsibility to take you out of this laziness.
But despite all this, I would certainly like to thank God, because I managed to share a good number of peach recipes, right in time before I saw this change of color.
For those of you who were asking for more peach recipes, you might need to wait for a few months until peaches are back in season. Wait, or may be I will share a couple of more peach recipes before the peaches are completely gone. What say?
Well, I am not promising anything, it’s just a matter of probability. Anyways who can tell when the fall comes, and where the summer goes…only time. And same is true with peach recipes. 😉
Today I have something to share with you which will surely enlighten you. I have these Super yummy Toasted Coconut Sesame Rice Krispie and Multigrain Cheerios Dark Chocolate Bars to make it a cheerful day.
Now, let’s talk about these beauties.
These bars took two attempts. The first attempt I made on a Saturday when everyone was at home. I thought I will click the photos the next day, but they disappeared before I could even realize. So I had to make these bars again, and this time I decided to make them when I was alone at home. So there were less chances that these would vanish before any pictures would be clicked! Though, I wasn’t sure. You know I love chocolates, so it was kinda hard to resist! But I did it somehow. 😉
The taste and texture is awesome with a lovely flavor. Thankfully, the second time I was able to click the pictures.
You can also add nuts if you wish, but I was really trying to keep it simple. Because it’s the way Ado loves it.
No one can deny that rice krispie treats are truly easy kid recipes. They are always a hit! And why not? We should delight our sweetest eaters with these treats sometimes. They are just simple and only a few simple ingredients are needed to make them.
These particular bars have toasted coconut, toasted sesame seeds, marshmallow, coconut oil, rice krispie, multigrain cheerios and dark chocolate. They are simply amazing.
I can call these bars a little healthier as I have only added coconut oil instead of butter. Yes, these rice krispie treats are made with coconut oil, not with any butter.
We all know that coconut oil has so many benefits, and it’s better for everyone. So I replaced butter with coconut oil in these rice krispie treats, and they were even better than regular ones. They are just too good. Less greasy and super yummy too.
These are incredibly delish for sure, if you ask me.
They are a better choice when it comes to regular rice krispie bars. And plus they are pretty too.
And who doesn’t love the ooey-gooey deliciousness coming from classic rice krispies bars. Seriously, no one can resist these perfect dessert bars.
So let’s learn to make Toasted Coconut Sesame Rice Krispie and Multigrain Cheerios Dark Chocolate Bars.
Line a baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Place coconut in a medium pan over low heat. Stir constantly for just a few minutes until coconut starts to turn light brown. Keep stirring continuously, as might get burn very quickly. Remove it from the heat and transfer to a large bowl. Add sesame seeds to the same pan, and toast them till they start to turn slightly brown. Remove from heat and keep aside.
Take a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoons of sesame seeds and 2 tablespoons toasted coconut to it. Add 1 drop of red food color and mix well with fingers. Keep this aside.
Take another large mixing bowl, and add toasted coconut and toasted sesame seeds to it. Add rice krispies and cheerios to the same bowl. Add marshmallows and 1/4 cup coconut oil to a second large bowl. Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Keep stirring in every 30 seconds, until marshmallows are melted.
Immediately pour the cereal coconut mixture in to the marshmallow mixture and stir to combine. Pour into prepared pan.
Spray your hands with cooking spray and press to fit. Add dark chocolate to a bowl. Melt in 30 second increments almost melted. Stir in 1 tsp coconut oil and then continue to melt and stir until smooth.
Spread evenly over krispie treats with an offset spatula. Cover with colored coconut and sesame seeds sprinkle. Chill until firm then cut into bars. Store at room temperature. Enjoy!
