I think my brilliant plan of adding crisp rice cereal to these blondies worked perfectly. It gave the bars that crispy, wafery, Kit-Kat feel to them, and sets them apart. In a good way.
When I mentioned to Carla that I needed a killer brownie recipe for the upcoming family reunion brownie bake-off for eternal fame and glory, she suggested I try her Peanut Butter Crispy Marshmallow Brownies.
And, being teenage boys that are constantly hungry, the kids decided to kill two birds with one stone. They would spend time in the kitchen baking treats. And then they would eat them. I threw them a bag of strawberry flavored marshmallows and a box of Rice Krispies, and put them to work. Having older kids is sooo great.
Since I’m addicted to the Food Bloggers Network, and I’m addicted to popcorn, this recipe was a natural leap. And, at the risk of tooting my own horn even more than usual, let me tell you that this might be my most brilliant concoction ever. Seriously.
