Here’s a Valentine’s Day thought: What if a rice crispy treat and a chocolate chip cookie met, fell in love, and had children?
My bet would be that these treats would be the offspring.
The other day, I was in my pantry and the Erewhon box of Crispy Brown Rice cereal was staring back at me. You’ve forgotten me, * it seemed to exclaim. *Oh no, * I replied, *I just…wanted to make something special with you. That’s all!
(What, you don’t have conversations with your cereal boxes?)
Anyway, I determined that now was the time to make that “something special”. I didn’t want another rice crispy treat (although I adored making these peanut butter ones, as well as these maple pecan ones!). I wanted to take this cereal in a different direction. So why not attempt to combine two iconic treats into one?
