Snap!

Do you ever just kick yourself when you hear of a new invention that seems so obvious you question your own intelligence for not coming up with it first? The millions made from the no slip hangers, the Snuggie (which I believe has been around for centuries only know by its prehistoric name, the ROBE), or those clever purses that have a light inside when you open them. All obvious ideas that I discovered only seconds after seeing them on TV. Smitten Kitchen had one of those "why didn't I think of that" recipes. A classic rice crispy treat is a crowd pleaser yes but sometime the sweetness is just too much after four or five squares. A real problem. Solution: Salt! Yes, that's what rice crispy treats have been missing all these years. You must try Smitten Kitchen's, Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats. I won big mommy points when I served these babies. Now you too can eat an entire pan without getting board of gooey sweetness.

Glad to know I'm the not the only one who can't stop at one.

Sounds delish. I'll have to give it a try.

I am always throwing stuff into various cookies. I like to leave out some of the marshmallows and add in a bunch of peanut butter and it makes them AMAZING. Try it!
