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.

Hmmm…

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 Cups

First 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…

A measuring cup of mini marshmallows and a small bowl of rainbow sprinkles

Let’s discuss.
You 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…

Then finally your sprinkles…

Spread that whole concoction out onto a parchment lined baking sheet…

Chill it for a bit to set it up and then melt some chocolate chips and spread that bidness all up on there…

And of course, more sprinkles…

Pretty, yes?

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

  1. Healthy Dessert Recipes

    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!

  2. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. bridget {bake at 350}

    I think you need to come BACK to Texas and we can make bark together…and never utter the word TAXES again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Carla @ Carlas Confections

    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. ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. sue @ Cakeballs, cookies and more

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