This was an incredible dessert bar and so easy to assemble.
Definitely a little dessert that can be put together quickly, having
most of the ingredients on hand. As Dorie mentions, when the
chocolate is spread on the base, your toppings can be varied.
When I was cutting them into squares the aroma of the
chocolate was so strong, I could not resist tasting a piece.
Definitely a repeat recipe to be experimented with. These
would be a great addition to any cookie recipe collection.
Per Tricia ~
I can not stop raving about this book- Baking Chez Moi- because every
recipe (granted, all desserts.....) has been a distinct winner. And even
among that competition, this recipe may have taken the lead.
Rice Krispy treats are almost an embarrassing love of mine.
Not many people are impressed if you list them as your favorite food but
the truth is, I just love the treat. I did not expect to get any tips
involving Rice Krispys from Dorie's book not only provided the bar
recipe but tips in the back about prepping the cereal with sugar on the stove.
Genius. Pure sugar genius.
I used bittersweet morsels typically for making chocolate chips.
This dessert bar is basically like a chocolate chip cookie separated in bar
form - plain cookie, then chocolate coating, then sugar coated Rice Krispy on top.
Winner, keeper, two thumbs up.
