Game over.But then I thought you might want to know why I won.But that would mean telling you all about these, and they wouldn’t be my little secret anymore.

These are Special K bars covered in Snickers Frosting.Frosting.Made of Snickers bars.Melted down Snickers bars.Yes, I totally went there.But that wasn’t it!I then chopped up an entire bag of the snack size bars and sprinkled them on top as if they were the magical happy tears from rainbow colored unicorns and each precious chunk was saving a Dalmatian puppy from being turned into a coat.Then I brought one to my husband and made him eat it. We just looked at each other. No words were necessary.Then my daughter came in and said, “Those look weird.” And I laughed and laughed and crazy eyed laughed and said,“You have no idea what you are saying child! Just back away. Don’t look into them too long or they will bewitch you with rainbows and love. Slowly, just turn around and then run as fast as you can! Run I tell you!”She gave me a weird look and went back to playing My Little Ponies on her ipad. Even though I forbid her playing that game. Dang those ponies are sassy!The Special K Bars recipe was adapted from allrecipes.com and the frosting was adapted from The Pioneer Woman. Immediately after making these and sampling just a bit I packaged everything up to be given away. They MUST BE GIVEN AWAY.
