Twist on a standard.
I have a barbeque potluck lunch to go to tomorrow. Potlucks are one of my favorite things: I LOVE baking for people and this is a great opportunity.
So then I proceeded to have a conversation with my brain:
Me: Brain! This is exciting! What should we make?!
Brain: Something tasty! Like, oh, those cookies! We’ve wanted to try them!
Me: Yeah the cookies!
Brain: Except, you know, it’s supposed to be VERY hot out. So, that means no buttercream.
Me: Brain, we’ve talked about this. What’s the point of those cookies if there’s no buttercream?!
Brain: Point made. Maybe rice krispie treats?
Me: Yes. But, let’s make them better.
So I did THIS:
You: Are those Reese’s peanut butter cups?!
Me: Not only yes, but heck yes.
Friends, they are amazing. It’s simple: make rice krispie treats and only put half of them in the pan. Add Reese’s. Put the rest of the rice krispies on top.
When it’s not a thousand degrees, I’m going to make those cookies.
