Chips & Fluff

IMG_2809

Much to my mother’s horror I arrived at my parents’ place for the long weekend with a bag of chips, marshmallows, and chocolate candies in tow (also my laundry) – ready to make ruffles and marshmallow squares in her healthful kitchen. After being inspired by an Instagram post from Bake Shoppe in Toronto a couple winters ago, I tossed mini eggs into the salty/sweet mixture to bring some treats into the office last spring. They were a hit. I threw them together again last week, and I guess two years in a row makes it an Easter tradition. They’re cutesie enough to delight kids, and the salty/sweet combo knows no age restrictions.

It’s not much of a recipe – if you’ve ever made rice crispie squares, you already know how to make these – but several friends asked me about them after I posted them on Instagram, so I figured I should share the joy. Happy Easter!
