I have a dear friend (that I attended kindergarten with thank you very much!) that frequently sends me recipes. She knows of my love of all things food and I know that if the recipe is from her then it is worth making. Unfortunately some of the recipes she sends do go unmade - but when she sent this recipe earlier this spring I made it the very same week. And again the next :)
As I made the caramel sauce, I realized that it is a basic caramel coating recipe for caramel popcorn. Somebody was just pretty brilliant to toss it over rice krispies. And while rice krispie treats may not be anybody's idea of gourmet, I have to admit that I LOVE them. This caramel twist just takes it to the next level of goodness! Not only are these insanely yummy, they are quick and easy and a great activity to share with the kiddos, who just so happen to be out of school and looking for something to do.
(recipe from Kim F.)
