Help me save 7 Layer **** Up Cake

It started as rice krispy treats but the marshmallows were old so it was tough and chewy.

I whipped together a powdered sugar and peanut butter spread to go on it that was great but felt weird with this soft fluffy icing on hard rice krispy treats.

So I melted some chocolate with some heavy whipping cream and speread it on. At that point it looked discussting so I hit it with some powdered sugar.

Any recommendations on how to save this thing so I can pass it off at pot luck tomorrow?

Know when to fold 'em.

Start from scratch, my friend. Start from scratch.

If you have any frenemies who can't make the potluck, just bring it and say that they made it and asked you to bring it since they couldn't be there.

Just put it on the table and hope no one sees you do it. Also make sure it's in a disposable tray so you don't have to pick up the disgusting leftovers at the end of the night.

It's a potluck supper.

It won't be the worst thing there.

Freeze it in scoop sized balls. It will look like something fancy, and nobody will have the nerve to say they don't like it.

Re: Help me save 7 Layer **** Up Cake

Do you always take the first slice before taking a dish to a pot luck dinner?

Exactly. $3 box of Rice Krispies(or cheaper knock-off) and a $1 bag of marshmallows. It probably would have been cheaper than the chocolate & peanut butter spread.

Re: Help me save 7 Layer **** Up Cake

Ok, wife tried it and said it just tasted like a day old pastry. Recommended drowning it in powdered sugar and taking it and pretending it is a foreign desert.

Better than making it a shake... Just fold it into some vanilla ice cream. Freeze it. Should be good to go.

No shit! What the hell?!

It's not even a small "test" piece. It's like 1/6 of the cake!

You could go to the local bakery and pick one up, but it will cost you five times as much.

Re: Help me save 7 Layer **** Up Cake

Good thinking with the powdered sugar on top and eating a chunk of it. Bring some straws. It might work as a conversation piece or an invitation for raucous laughter.
If nothing else, I'm sure it tastes a lot better than it looks. Just blow off the blow first.

Re: Help me save 7 Layer **** Up Cake

Update: The powdered sugar did the trick. A rousing success, but being the only desert item probably helped too. It was all gone with I came in this morning and someone even asked me for a recipe.
