Chris came home from work Monday night all excited saying that he was going to be making a dessert that he found online. I told him i would let him make it himself. About 5 minutes in i basically took over. I can't help it, but that's pretty much how everything went horribly wrong.
You've seen pinterest fails before, I'm sure of it. Well i thought i would be smarter than the pinterest recipe and change things up a bit and not follow the recipe exactly and well it didn't go so well.
Here is the original recipe: Homemade Little Debbie star crunch-no bake
It seems like a super simple recipe with super simple instructions. I'll go with what we did wrong.
- We only have salted butter. Eh, I'm sure that will be fine, through it in!
- I know what i'm doing honey, this doesn't need to be microwaved this long.
- It would go faster if we didn't make them into disks and we just flattened them into bars
- We'll just put them in the fridge for a few minutes and let them cool and then put the chocolate on
It was basically an avalanche of i know better then this recipe.
They ended up being bricks! Giant, tooth chipping, yet extremely tasty, bricks!
I mean once we sawed out a piece, then successfully taken a bite, then were able to chew on the piece for a bit, it got chewy and it actually tasted really good!
It was an unfortunate series of mishaps that lead to our brick homemade star crunch krispies.
I vow now to try again and follow the recipe EXACTLY. Its gonna bother me until i figure out if this yummy recipe can actually be replicated successfully.
Wish us luck!
