Dorie gave the option of making caramelized Rice Krispies (page 428) or plain Rice Krispies for the topping. I wanted to go for the gusto and make the caramelized topping. I managed not to burn them so I was off to a good start.
The directions were to bake the base for 22 minutes at 375 degrees. I only baked my for 20 minutes and I still think they were a little too dark and over baked. Next time I will bake even less.
I managed to cut my bars without any incident. Chocolate is one of my all time favorite ingredients and I like any dessert that includes chocolate. These bars were no exception. My husband and I thought they were more candy-like than cookie but still good. My son just wanted plain Rice Krispie Treats:)
