Samoas Rice Krispie Treats

Rice krispie squares recipe;  These krispie treats are filled with caramel and coconut, and taste like a Samoas girl scout cookie.

For example: Robb and I have been watching Breaking Bad on Netflix.  Because it is an awesomely well-written show.  And even though I am starting to kind of hate Walt, it’s not going to keep me from seeing how his story ends.

There are 5 seasons of this show.  When we watched the final season, there were only 6 episodes on Netflix.  Robb assumed this was because there were only 6 episodes period.  But I thought, there have to be more.

I thought it even more after we watched that 6th episode.  I was so annoyed that it didn’t wrap anything up, and ended with a cliffhanger.  “This cannot be the end!”  I screamed.  “It doesn’t make any sense!”  Robb just shrugged his shoulders at me.
