Krispie Treat Bark

This past week I went and got my taxes done.  Which is one of those adult things you have to do that scares the bajeezus out of me.

Trying to explain blogging as a job is like, pretty hard you guys.

He’s all, “You own a bakery?”

No sir.

“You bake cakes for people?”

Well, not exactly.

“Do you deliver?”

Umm, no.

“So, you bake things for invisible internet people to enjoy?”

Yes, that’s kind of it.

“And you get paid for this?”

Well, yes, that’s the idea.


So while I felt super adult getting my taxes done, I also felt like a total noob for calling myself a “blogger” and expecting him to take me for a serious adult person.

I mean, having a job where I get to make things like Krispie Treat Bark for a living and then expecting all you internet people to leave me comments here telling me what a great person I am, and how great it looks, and how smart I am…I suppose it’s slightly self indulgent.

But really I do it for you guys.  And your bellies.

So I should change my title from blogger to “Completely-selfless-dessert-idea-person”.

I don’t think my accountant would find that confusing at all.

Ok. back to the bark.

Krispie Treat Bark | Cookies and CupsFirst let me point out that the idea and basic recipe came from one of very favorite people, Bridget.

She made this Conversation Heart Bark a few years back and I have had it stored away in my brain files for a while now.

I took her recipe and switched up just a few things…

Let’s discuss.
A measuring cup of mini marshmallows and a small bowl of rainbow sprinklesYou really only need a few things for this…Rice Krispie cereal, white chocolate, mini marshmallows, sprinkles and semi-sweet chocolate…oh yeah, and more sprinkles.

First melt your white chocolate over a double boiler and then mix in your Krispies.  Once those are mixed in add in your marshmallows…

And of course, more sprinkles…

Chill that pan of jolly for a little bit so the chocolate sets up and then cut it into pieces.

I love to make healthy(er) Rice Krispie Treats and your recipe will be a fun addition to our kitchen. The only thing is that I’ll have to do a lot of experimenting to come up with a healthy version of sprinkles. Hmmm, you got my wheels turning!

Can I just say, you’re a genius.

Our accountant is like 80 years old and he’s done my taxes for the past 6 years and still doesn’t get what I do.
Maybe if I brought him some of this bark next time he wouldn’t care 😉

I think you need to come BACK to Texas and we can make bark together…and never utter the word TAXES again. 😉

February 25, 2013 12:16 pm

Oh man! Im not looking forward to taxes when I start getting paid for blogging =/ which will hopefully be soon. LOL, but i think some of this bark will ease my pain. 😀

This looks like a winner to me!!! Definitely need to make this like today!

February 25, 2013 9:55 am

very cute, and just tell the tax people you will make them cookies that should stop the questions.

You can do things to rice cereal that are just simply amazing! THIS looks fabulous!

February 25, 2013 12:23 am

This looks so easy (the bark, not the taxes)! I can’t imagine how you keep track of all that!

February 24, 2013 11:18 pm

And, hold on a minute there lady. You got a new look! I like!

So, I get my taxes done at the same place every year and my tax guy brings the entire office out to meet me/say hi every year that I come in. “This is the girl that gets paid to blog!” Like, I’m a circus freak? I mean, quit pointing and staring, you guys. It’s not polite. Also, I’m pretty sure it’s 2013. This isn’t that confusing.

Anyway, I love your recipes as usual, blah blah blah.

So, the strangest thing just happened…I read the word “taxes” and I got this strange eye twitch that won’t go away. Huh. Weird, right?

Preeeeeety sure the only thing that will fix it is some of this bark. I mean, I’m not a doctor but I watch PLENTY of Grey’s.

These look great. I’ll have to share them with my little sister who is a sucker for Rice Krispie Treats. She’ll just go ga-ga over these.

Every year I try to explain to my dads accountant that my blog is a business and thus I should be able to write off grocery bills as a business expense…no luck so far. These treats look wonderful!

It would be too sweet to add cake mix right? No? Ok
