So you can actually see the floor of my room at the moment. Such a major accomplishment in my life. I mean don’t que the fanfare quite yet, there’s no need for a standing ovation, but a nice little pat on the back would totally suffice. My bedroom is what you’d call a work in progress…for the rest of my life.
Today I was productive, but sometimes (if you’re me, then most of the time) you just don’t feel like being productive at all. Throwing the next load of laundry into the washing machine seems like such a chore and I don’t even want to think about folding the mountain of clean clothes I just pulled out. Then there’s the dishes…do we even need to talk about the dishes? Who wants to do those? Really, how many days is too many days to leave a sink full of dirty dishes? 2…3…5? Don’t act like you’ve never left some dishes in your sink.
Good news is I’m here to help you out. Unfortunately not with your house work, but I’ve got a little something to distract you just long enough to forget about the dust on your blinds and the fact that your rug needs to be vacuumed…again. Remember the chocolate chip cookie on steroids? Well, today I’ve got a little variation of a rice krispie treat that is out of this world. I’m not sure it’s even fair to call it a rice krispie treat, because it’s so much more. My friend Natalie discovered this little gem at a coffee shop in Denton Texas called The Jupiter House. She brought me a sample once and since then I’ve been trying to recreate it. A few months ago I happened to stumble upon a recipe for Avalanche Bars that looked awfully similar to the Jupiter Bark, so I gave it a try. Bingo. Since Denton is a good hour away from here and soon to be around 950 miles from Natalie I thought I’d share this recipe here so we all can enjoy it. These are so easy you’re going to be thanking me for days (hopefully not in your bathrobe because all of your clothes are dirty).
1. First things first, let’s gather those ingredients.
Here’s what we’ve got:
