So my husband's been eating healthy the past few weeks and I tell you, it's been a real strain on me. You can laugh but this is a serious issue. How's a girl supposed to indulge in a bowlful of ice cream when her husband's sitting next to her on the couch eating carrot sticks? Or how's she going to finish a package of leftover mini snickers she found from Christmas (this is purely a hypothetical situation) while the husband is snacking on his "handful" of craisins? I mean really?
Ah, seriously it's lame. So I decided the only thing to do would be to hide the Snickers in some rice krispy treats because those are way less obvious right? I mean how could anyone know I snuck that entire bag into my one pan of rice krispies? Exactly.
So in my batch I chopped the snickers up pretty well, just so every bite would get some of that caramelly/chocolately/peanutty goodness. Other than that it's just your basic rice krispy. I'm telling you, these things ended up with that perfect chew to crisp ratio every treat should have. Mmmm... As it is, there are some benefits of having a healthy husband, I get to eat the whole pan by myself. (But don't worry, I can always blame it on the kids) Winning!
Ok so go try these! Better yet make them for valentines day! Nothing says I Love You like a Snickers bar
