He was posing all cute and on his best behavior for like 3 seconds, and then he stuck his hand in the marshmallows.

Monkey really tries to be helpful.  He carried the pot over for me… and then did this amazing front flip into the pot.


Then all of a sudden he pulled out some mistletoe.  Mistletoe.  Where does a monkey get mistletoe from ??  He even did the spiderman upside down kiss thinking that would help him get lucky!  And it did ;)

Then we melted the butter, added the marshmallows, stirred them until they were melted, added the cocoa krispies, stirred,  then poured it into a buttered pan and smooshed it down.

They turned out great!  Easy and simple!  Done in minutes and ready to eat!   Some recipes called for extra peppermint extract but I think they were pepperminty enough (but not too strong).

I was trying to take pictures but all he wanted to do was get his hands on a treat!  I kept shooing him away and then he came in all Tom Cruise “Mission Impossible” style!


  Cooking with a monkey is not always easy… but there is never a dull moment with him!


  1. What a crazy monkey, he needs some skills!

  2. I hope that silly little monkey is coming to Nantucket with you! :)
