Snap! Crackle! Pop!

Neapolitan Krispie Ring. Original, huh?

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!

I think somewhere there is a special kind of hell for people who have never made Rice Krispie treats. Oh wait that is me. And I love the darn things.

Cele: I agree! However, I think we can amend your edict to say that there's a special place in hell for people who either don't make RKT or who have never consumed RKT. There! That way, you're safe from hell (for now anyway. If you're gonna go to hell, it should be for something really good and not because you don't make RKT.)

And now I'm in the mood for RKT again, but that would require a trip to the store. I think I'll have a Reese's Peanut Butter Egg instead. That's a good substitute, right?
