Edible "Bricks" Parshas Shemos
We have just begun the new Chumash, Sefer Shemos!
The glorious days for the Children of Israel living in the land of Goshen comes to an end. As we open with this week’s Torah portion, the Jews begin their long exile, enduring many years of intense slavery. Paroh demands the Jewish people work long hours and with little resources, building structures and pyramids on land that is not suitable, causing the buildings to collapse, and draining their morale.
We have got a simple Parsha Treat that you or your children can make at home and bring the parsha to life on your shabbos table! This is probably the easiest Parsha dessert. It's a fun and sweet treat everyone will love!
Let’s jump right in and make some edible bricks!
What you’ll need:
9 cups puffed rice cereal
1 container Marshmallow fluff
4 tbsp of Margarine
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
In a medium pot, melt the margarine, peanut butter and marshmallow fluff, on low-medium heat. Keep stirring the mixture to ensure it will not burn.
2. Prepare a bowl with the puffed rice cereal.
3. Once the marshmallow mixture is completely melted, remove from the heat and pour the mixture over the puffed rice cereal. Mix well.
4. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper. Pour the mixture into the pan and press down, smoothing the top out. Refrigerate or freeze until the treats are hardened.
5. Remove the parchment paper from the pan with the rice crispy treats. Using a sharp knife, cut rectangle “bricks”. Refrigerate or freeze until you are ready to serve.
6. When you are ready for serving, stack the bricks into shape of a pyramid.
And there you have it! Easy and edible pyramid for your family to enjoy as a Shabbos treat!
