Yeah, I did make those. And yeah I am actually blogging it.... Call me white trash, call me unsophisticated, call me simple.... Just don't call me crazy because you know deep down in your heart of hearts that you too have a deep appreciation for the simple beauty that is The Rice Krispies Treat.
I think Rice Krispies Treats were the first "dessert" I made as a child. When I was in college I would make mini batches of them in the microwave and would eat them straight out of the bowl... still warm and very very gooey.
I haven't made them in so long... and I am not really sure what possessed me to make them tonight... I was at the grocery and there were all the ingredients (all 2 of them) set up together and the craving hit me. I thought I may get creative with it and add in some other "gourmet" ingredients. But then I realized I was trying to turn them in to Britney Spears... White Trash with Money. So I said forget it and let them be the root showing, cut off shorts wearing, chain smoking little treats they were meant to be. I am actually going to post the recipe... just in case you are feeling a little red.
