Topping of the Week: Frosted Rice Krispies

Ok, don't ask me how I thought of this on the way home. It was a long day and I was headed home one and a half hours later than I usually leave. I was trying to decide what to grab for food on the way home when I started to think about Ice Cream instead. I could crack have some Edy's or maybe crack open the Breyer's Cookie Dough, but then it hit me. I bet frosted rice krispies would taste great on the right ice cream. Hmmm, sounds like a job for Turkey Hill's Chocolate Pretzel Ice cream.

I got home, put my things down, and reached for a big bowl (didn't want to make too big a mess). I decided to do a quick one spoon taste test and I realized this idea had potential. I scooped out a respectable serving and doused on the rice krispies. It was a bit cold so I let it warm up for a few minutes, and then I dug in. And guess what? I like it! I don't think it would work on just any flavor, but it's working now. Plus, the crunchiness of the krispies totally distracts from the fact the pretzels aren't always crunchy. This totally works. I don't know if it would work with a strong chocolate, but it totally works with the mild chocolate flavor (delivered by the vanilla and fudge) and works great with the chocolate covered pretzels.

Moral of the story: don't be afraid! Worse case scenario: I would have had to scrape off the krispies. Best case: I made myself a no-fuss, no cooking, dinner. Yeehaa!
