Snap! Crackle! Pop!
Once a year, a group of us get together and have a brunch where the theme is chocolate. It's a fabulous little affair with lots of yummy food. I made these cookies from Never Bashful with Butter and they were a huge hit. With the exception of one woman, no one could guess what the secret ingredient was. They were surprisingly tasty.
Then, just for fun, I made Rice Krispie Treats. I found strawberry and chocolate marshmallows at Target. When I brought them home, my initial plan was just to make a pan of Rice Krispie Treats in each flavor whenever the mood struck. Then I realized I could have fun with it and ended up making a Neapolitan Krispie Ring! This is a picture of said ring. Surprisingly, everyone really enjoyed these, too. (Although, I think on this one, they were just being polite.) If I ever make these again, I'll skip the chocolate marshmallows and just buy Cocoa Crispies instead. The chocolate marshmallow layer: not so good. The strawberry layer: yum!
Happy (Photo) Friday, friends!
