Samoa Rice Krispy Treats

I’ve had a bag of Rice Krispy cereal sitting in my pantry for months now. Just starring back at me, begging me to cover them in melted butter and marshmallows.  I finally did today but I couldn’t stop at just plain old Rice Krispy Treats. I remembered a somoa sheet cake I made from a recipe on Chef In Training awhile ago, and felt inspired. I toasted some coconut flakes, melted some caramel and chocolate and drizzled everything on top. So easy, and a fun step up from a normal Rice Krispy Treat. Beware: These aren’t for the faint of heart. Only hard core sweet tooth’s can handle these bad boys.
