I am always looking for ways to make a twist on a classic. Recently, I had a craving for chocolate and homemade Rice Krispies treats so I got a little creative. They were not only delicious but super easy! My kids love these as a special treat or an easy dessert night!
Homemade Rice Krispies Treats
- 5 cups Rice Krispies
- 1 1/2 packages of Jet Puffed Large Marshmallows
- 4 T butter or margarine
- 1/2 bag M&M minis
- Plastic Wrap
- 8X8 or 8X13 pan
Place the butter in a large stock pot and let it melt.
Then add the marshmallows, and stir constantly until it is melted. (resembling marshmallow fluff)
Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies. Stir until they all are thoroughly coated.
Wait a few minutes, then add the M&Ms (gently fold them in)
Place in a non-stick baking dish (or spray with non-stick spray)
Use plastic wrap to press them down and make them even.
Let cool for about 5 minutes, then sprinkle more M&Ms on the top.
Press down again with plastic wrap.
Cut and serve!
