About

My husband looked at me in disbelief as I met him at the checkout with my Rice Krispies in hand. Not only were they on sale, but they were also the solution to my quandary regarding the bag of tiny marshmallows sitting in my pantry since the holidays. I never did get around to making the Quebeçois version of fudge, the melt in your mouth "sucre à la crème".
To redeem myself, I decided to add a few ingredients to the original recipe on the box. Sure enough, just adding some dried cranberries and white chocolate chips made these the ideal adult treat for the kid in me.
