How was your weekend? We spent the weekend going out to dinner (of course) and looked at some granite for our kitchen. Yes! I am super excited, we are going to be updating our counter tops – can’t wait to show you the before and after pictures. 🙂
Then I made these…
I was not in the mood to get out my mixer this weekend (I know, crazy right?) so I decided to put together a classic favorite and jazz it up a bit. Who doesn’t like RICE KRISPIE TREATS?!?!
I don’t think I need to explain how to make these cutie pies – melt everything, stir, dip, decorate and vuala! These are a crowd pleaser – they’re cute, fun and simply just good. It brings adults back to their childhood and kids? You will become the favorite in no tiiiiiime.
Don’t you worry, I sampled the mixture….;)
I used milk chocolate chips to dip, but you could use anything – semi-sweet, white chocolate, any color of candy coating to make these your own.
The only thing I would do differently next time, is add more marshmallows. You know me, I like to add a little more of the sweet stuff because I am sweet crazy but it’s up to you!
They’re almost too cute to eat.
- 31/2 tablespoons butter
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 bag marshmallows
- 6 cups rice krispies cereal
- 11/2 cups milk chocolate chips
- Melt butter over low heat in a large pot. Once melted stir in vanilla and add marshmallows. Continue stirring until marshmallows are completely melted. Remove from heat.
- Add in rice krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
- Butter your hands and press mixture into an 8x8 non-stick pan. Add sprinkles to the top and press again lightly so the sprinkles stick.
- Once cooled, cut into square (whatever size you would like) and set on wax paper.
- In a small bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave at 20 second intervals stirring each time until chocolate is completely melted. If chocolate seems gloopy, add about 1 teaspoon of vegetable shortening until it becomes running. Dip rice krispie treats in chocolate, shaking off excess chocolate, then add sprinkle to the top.
- Let chocolate set up and serve
