For a total chocolate freak, I'm actually slightly obsessed with a few desserts that have nothing to do with cocoa. Two biggies: Caramel (ideally the salted caramel variety -- which gives it a little kick!) and Rice Krispie Treats. There's definitely something to be said about the texture of sweets, and both ooey-gooey caramel and crispy, krackly RKTs have something goin' in that department.
So obviously, whoever came up with the idea of combining the two is a mad genius! Love that a recipe like this is also super kid-friendly in the kitchen -- oh, and fast, too!
