    Default brownies or crispy treats?

    I have a box of brownie mix and a box of Rice Krispies both with 2011 "expiration" dates. We're going over to a friend's house to hang out tonight, which one should I make up to take as a snack?

    I think you should make the one that both you and/or your guests do not eat often.

    Everyone seems to make brownies and a lot of desserts are chocolate or cake based. I think the Rice Krispies are an understated classic

    brownies, definitely. Krispie treats are a poor substitute for dessert, IMHO, no flavor. Unless you put some choc. chips in there...

    I think you should bake brownies and rice treats.

    I don't get either very often so I would have one of each and feel like the Cheshire cat.

    OK, brownies it is then! I have eggs to use up anyways. And I think, if we play a tabletop game it will be less sticky, too.

    I love them both but voted for brownies since I'm in the mood for chocolate. (and this post reminded me to add marshmallows to my grocery list. My mom sent a HUGE box of Rice Krispies home with dd and I need to use them up. I will make treats this weekend!)
