Author Notes

A hybrid of a rice krispie treat and a chocolate bar, this dessert is buttery, just-barely sweet, and deliciously crunchy. I use bittersweet chocolate so the bars aren't too sweet, but feel free to use semisweet or milk if that's your style. —Posie (Harwood) Brien

I like warm homemade bread slathered with fresh raw milk butter, ice cream in all seasons, the smell of garlic in olive oil, and sugar snap peas fresh off the vine.
