But it was not something that I had thought of.
And when I saw it online, I knew it had to happen for a recent shower for which I made some food.
That "something" is the addition of white chocolate drizzle to the very pedestrian and quite uninspiring Rice Krispy Treat.
Here are the Rice Krispy Treats pre-drizzle.
Here is the magic ingredient:
I threw a bar into the double boiler and once it was all smooth and melty, I added just a tinge of red paste food coloring to give it just a hint of pink (baby girl shower!!)
Then I drizzled it over the bars. It added a little color, it took them up a notch!
And as my lovely college daughter said, "You wouldn't think a little chocolate would make these so much better!!
She was right! Do try!
(Also, Ann from On Sutton Place posted a recipe for Perfect Rice Krispy Treats that use marshmallow cream instead of marshmallows. That could be my next step up for these simple, chewy, delights!)
