Biscoff Rice Krispie Treats

7-30-12 201

Do any of you remember how obsessed with Biscoff Spread I was a couple of months back?

It was bad.  Well, I think the obsession is back.

It must be that I just started my first week of senior year in college with a 21 hour workload.  Or it could just be the fact that it’s really good.

I don’t know, you decide.

These rice krispie treats may look boring and normal, but trust me, the taste is far from boring and normal.  Deeelliiiccciiioouusss.

Try it for yourself!

Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

5-12 071

My friend’s uncle drives a cereal truck, so anytime he gets cereal, everyone I live with gets it, too.

This time, we got Rice Krispies, so I wanted to do something creative with them.  (Don’t worry, I’ve also made rice krispie treats twice now.)

I found a recipe for Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies, used it, and took it to another level.  They turned out really good.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but they tasted like brownies covered with crunchy chocolate chip cookies.  Weird, huh? ;)  My brains not doing so well with descriptions right now, I think it’s because I just finished FINALS!! Yay!!!

What’s your favorite recipe for Rice Krispies?
