This has been unopened in my kitchen cupboard ever since. Brad has been trying to throw the box away since it arrived, knowing that I would probably not eat them. Since they expire next month, and I can't let Clay's legacy go to waste, I made a batch of Clay Matthews bars today. Behold my crappy iphone photo:
And if you'd like to also make Clay proud, this is how we do it:
Clay Matthews Bars
6 cups of Wheaties FUEL cereal with Clay Matthews' photo on it
11 ounces of marshmallows
~1/4 c of extra virgin coconut oil (see what I did there? This is not the standard krispie-rice cereal bar recipe, no!)
Melt 3 TBSP of coconut oil in large pan over medium heat. Take another little glop of it in your hands and coat a 9"x13"pan.
Add marshmallows and let them melt. Actually let them get a tiny bit carmelized/brown -- you will see faint swirls of caramel-colored marshmallow in the mix. This is a delicious thing. Just don't let them burn to the bottom of the pan. Stir, stir, stir.
Mix in cereal.
Pat mixture into pan. Let harden to room temperature. Eat a little corner piece, then cut the rest into squares.
This weekend, Brad and I and our friend Dave are headed up to beautiful Snowshoe West Virginia, here Brad will be participating in some ridiculously long mountain bike race, and I will be eating Clay Matthews Bars -- hey, the baby needs FUEL.
Someday I'll tell you about the time that I was 6 months pregnant and it as 100 degrees every day and we didn't have power for a week.
