I've been invaded

It would appear there is a new weekly ritual in the Harris household.

Right now, there are seven guys sitting at my dining room table, eating pizza and treats I made, and playing poker.

Craig told me this was going to happen last night. There were a couple of guys who started getting together on lunches to play, and the group grew into a weekly Friday game until Craig joined up last week. And promptly volunteered our house to play since the group was getting a bit big.

He only told me about it last night. Typical of him. :)

So, I spent the morning rescuing the house so that it was presentable for everyone, and I made one of my kids' favorite treats as a snack, since we're hosting. At least now I have warning that it's going to happen every week. No more scrambling to get things done at the last minute.

And in light of the non-cooking I did this morning, I'm going to put up the recipe for what I made. These are just Rice Krispie treats with a chocolatey difference. No big. But I do make them at Christmas (even if they don't count as a cookie) just because they're always gone so fast.

Chocolate Caramel Crispy Treats

4 2.05 oz bars of Milky Way
3/4 cup butter, divided
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup milk chocolate chips

1. Melt candy and 1/2 cup of butter, stirring occasionally until smooth.
2. Stir in cereal until well blended.
3. Press into a greased 11x7" pan.
4. Melt chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup butter, stirring until smooth.
5. Spread over the top of bars.
6. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.

I always end up doubling this recipe and using a slightly bigger pan. They're easy, they're fast, and people always devour them.

I had to sneak a few aside for the kids for later because they were half gone before the pizza ever arrived. Men. :)
