I totally get why Romy and Michele claimed the whole Post-It(R) note thing. Those things are genius, who would not want to claim credit for that?
Well, I kind of feel the same way about caramelized Rice Krispies(R).
Rice Krispies(R) have always been my downfall. I could eat those things by the gallon full. (Kidding, not kidding).
Rice Krispies(R) treats? Please don't leave me alone with a plate of them. It doesn't end well.
Now, Dorie Greenspan has added another downfall to my arsenal - caramelized Rice Krispies(R). Did you know that you can heat up sugar and water, caramelize it and then toss in these little bits of cereal? Do you also know how stinking addictive the end product is? (I had to make a second batch because the first one was demolished by the rest of the house).
Placing those crispy treats on top of a brown sugar shortbread crust that had been slathered with chocolate (I used one from the stash that I brought from from a tour of Mast Brothers) doesn't hurt either.
I made these for a dinner party along with some turtle brownies. The shortbread bars were the hands down winner - not even brownies with caramel on them could compete.
