Sometimes I like to be real classy and drink champagne and eat fig tarts. Those are my fancy days. Other times, I want RICE KRISPIE TREATS and I don’t care who knows it! I am a rice krispie treat fiend and I love anything that contains heavy contents of marshmallow. Which is why Peeps and I are best friends fo’ life. But hey!! I attempted to be a little healthy by getting the gluten free Rice Krispies, as opposed to the regular old ones. That made me feel better about eating half of them in one sitting. Here’s how I made those pretty things:
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispies (I chose the gluten free ones)
- dash of salt
- dash of vanilla
- as much peanut butter as your heart desires
- bag of chocolate chips (your decision if you want them semi-sweet, milk choc, dark choc, etc)
To make the rice krispie treats, melt the butter in a large sauce pan. Once melted, add the marshmallows until they are completely melted and blended together smoothly. Stir in a dash of salt and a dash of vanilla extract. Mix in the rice krispies until well blended with the marshmallows. Transfer mixture to a greased 13×9 dish and let cool. Spread peanut butter over cooled rice krispie treats. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over low heat. Make sure the water from the double boiler is only simmering. Stir constantly until chocolate is completely melted. Pour over the peanut butter layer. Allow to cool completely before digging in. I know this is the hardest part but trust me, it’s 10x better when the chocolate is completely hardened!!
You are so adorable. Peeps are my fav as well.
