|However, this was my end result.|
|This was what the recipe was suppose to turn out like.|
I should have realized what was to come while I was still at the grocery, and they didn't have Rice Chex. I ignored the foreshadowing and bought the only type of non-flavored Chex on the shelf: Wheat Chex. Later that evening I sat down, and sorted the marshmallows from the cereal. (Thankfully, that went as planned.)
We finished our Doctor Who episode, and I went to melt the chocolate. Lacking both a microwave and a true double boiler, I ghetto-rigged one with a medium sized skillet, some large metal serving utensils, and a large glass bowl. I know that it's a surprise that my ingenious sounding contraption didn't work out well, but it didn't. Maybe if I would have given it more time, or kept the heat higher, but I was afraid of the glass bowl exploding, so I decided to mix the chocolate with the cereal as best I could and then see if it would melt in the oven.
The oven began to smoke, upon further inspection, it was a left-over piece of sausage from the pizza earlier in the night. Maybe if I had left it a little longer the chocolate would have melted like planned. Alas, we shall never know, because I became frustrated and just smashed it all together the best I could, mixed everything else together and called it a day.
