As a business owner, my fiancé hosts a golf tournament every year as a way to give back to our small town golf course and community. Therefore every year, I get to be in charge of making the dessert for over one hundred people. Between cookies and bars, I always try to make a little variety so this weekend I made pumpkin bars, Reese’s brownies, monster cookies, pumpkin snickerdoodles, and special k bars. And of course these caramel Rice Krispie bars, which might be my favorite. They are like regular Rice Krispie bars on steroids! Luckily they are just as easy too.
