Rice Krispy Treats

Or is it Krispie? Maybe it should be Krispies since you need many of them. Anyhow. I am baaaack! I didn't go anywhere but still. And it’s a rare recipe post. Hell, a rare post at all. I was always going to post some pictures of our South Pacific vacation but I didn’t even take any foodie pics. It would just be pics of sand, sky and water. I’ll probably get around to it.

This is one of our favorite simple desserts. Do you think it is too “white-trash”?

Crunchy Fudge Sandwiches

(1) 12 oz. package butterscotch chips
1 cup crunchy-style peanut butter
8 cups Rice Krispies
(1) 12 oz. package chocolate chips
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons water

In a large saucepan, combine butterscotch chips and peanut butter; heat until chips melt and mixture is smooth. Add Rice Krispies; stir until well coated with butterscotch mixture.

Press half of the cereal mixture into greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Chill in refrigerator while preparing fudge mixture. Set remaining butterscotch mixture aside.

Combine in medium saucepan over low heat: chocolate chips, powdered sugar, butter and water. Stir until chips melt and mixture is smooth. Spread over refrigerated butterscotch mixture. Spread remaining butterscotch mixture evenly over top. Press gently. Chill in refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into squares.

Sooooo….we’ve got a road trip coming up in June. I’m thinking I might blog from the road from an iPhone. Is it possible to do this without swearing? If I do it will be at a new website – of which I will provide my reader a link. (Hi, reader!) Hey, many new SD food stuffs blogs have popped (and probably pooped) up in the last year – one that I just noticed that looks really great is at from a dude named Roger.
