My kitchen floor is so sticky. You know when you walk on tile floor that is so dirty that your flip flops make that squelch, squelch, squelch noise with each step?
Yep, that’s where we’re at here.
It’s not that we don’t clean our kitchen floor regularly. In fact, I use my favorite little dust buster every single day to clean up the crumbs from our boys who eat like gerbils. Actually I think that would make a really great baby shower gift! Much more practical than a teeny tiny outfit that will only be worn one time.
Kids + Food = Crumbs
But this is why my kitchen floor is extra sticky.
Last night my husband wanted to top off his bowl of vanilla ice cream with a little chocolate syrup. One problem — our chocolate syrup supply was running dangerously low. So he did what I taught him to do years ago. He held on tight to the bottom of the chocolate syrup bottle and swung it around like a spastic windmill to use centrifugal force to get the few stubborn remaining drops of chocolate syrup to the top of the bottle.
Yeah, I think you see where this is going…
The cap wasn’t on tight enough…
Sticky drops of chocolate syrup all over the kitchen…
Husband does his best to clean up the mess, but remnants of the syrup cling to the floor with reckless abandon. We really should’ve called our site Dirty Little Kitchen.
Can’t blame him though. Sometimes you just really need some chocolate!
- 25 Oreo cookies, divided
- 1 stick butter, divided
- 3 cups miniature marshmallows
- 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 6 ounces white chocolate (I used Ghirardelli melting wafers)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Crush 20 of the Oreo's finely. You could use a food processor or a Zip-loc bag and a rolling pin.
- In a small bowl mix the crushed Oreos with 4 tablespoons of melted butter.
- Press the Oreo mixture into the bottom of an 8x8 baking dish. I lined mine with parchment paper, leaving extra paper hanging over the edge of the pan to make the bars easier to remove.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly while you make the Rice Krispies layer.
- In a large nonstick pan, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir until they are melted.
- Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies until well combined.
- Firmly press the Rice Krispies mixture onto the Oreo crust. I like to use my butter wrapper to do this.
- Following directions on the package, melt white chocolate. Pour over Rice Krispies and spread to the edges of the pan.
- Give the remaining 5 Oreos a rough chop and sprinkle over white chocolate.
- Allow white chocolate to cool and dry before cutting into bars.
