I’m not sure why, but for the past week I have been craving Rice Krispie treats but felt it was too silly to make. Changed my mind.
Instead of making just regular Rice Krispies, I melted chocolate and chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter cups on top. When I was a kid my mom use to make Rice Krispie treats with us and would always melt chocolate on top. These remind me of my childhood..plus a little bit of my obsession – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. So good.
Rice Crispie Recipe
1/2 cup Butter
8 cups of miniture marshmallows
10 cups of Rice Krispie Cereal
3 cups of melted chocolate chips
A bunch of chopped up candy bars
Directions: (Have a 13×9 inch pan sprayed with cooking spray ready.)
1. Melt the butter in a large pan on the stove.
2. Add in the marshmallows and melt completely. Keep stirring for another 2 minutes.
3. Add in the rice krispies and do a few quick stirs. Then quickly transfer into a 13×9 inch cake pan and pat down with a metal utensil (I used a butter knife but you could use whatever).
4. Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 1 minute intervals, stirring in between each. Pour melted chocolate over rice krispies. While chocolate is still warm, add chopped up candy on top.
I hope you all give it a try! It’s super easy and it takes about 10 minutes really. You’ll never want to use the Rice Krispie Box version ever again, trust me.
