Looking to up your “after school treat” game? Or just want something simple that looks fancy to take to your next bake sale? This is the recipe for you. Elevate your rice crispy treats by adding a luscious layer of marshmallow creme and drizzling on some chocolate – yup, that’s all you have to do to make a gooey, rich treat from a box of cereal.
I grew up making and eating Rice Krispies treats from the recipe on the box, and they are still great and nostalgic for me, but once you make something a million times you get a little bit bored. I’ve tried changing the recipe many different ways – adding different cereals, tossing in some candy, drizzling caramel – but nothing really stuck out, until this one! The joy of rice crispy treats is the gooey marshmallow, so why take away from that flavor? Instead I decided to DOUBLE it. Yes, the marshmallow creme from your childhood is the “it” factor in this recipe. These get a thumbs up from my toddler too (in moderation, because hello, lots of sugar). Side note: we have a 6 week old baby so these sugary treats didn’t last long in our house – working on eating healthier in upcoming blog posts. Time to start saying good-bye to the pregnancy chub (as much as I love wearing exercise leggings or maternity pants everyday it would be nice to look halfway like a casually dressed adult sometimes).
