It's a mouthful to say-and even yummier to eat! This is a whimsical favorite at my house. The skies the limit with any kind of addition you might be craving.
On this particular day, my daughter's really wanted chocolate and peanut butter, but not just any chocolate peanut butter creation; they wanted it to have peanut butter chips with yummy white polka dots.
What if zebra's came with white polka dots and chocolate stripes?
I think they'd look Fabulous!
These are super yummy and so much fun!
6 cups crispy rice cereal 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
4 cups miniature marshmallows 1/2 cup dark or milk chocolate chips
1 T I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, or 1 T butter 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Spray 8x8 inch square pan, large cooking pot and spatula with non-stick cooking spray. Melt 1 T butter over med-high heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted, take off heat and mix in crispy rice cereal. Mix in 1/4 cup peanut butter chips, reserving the remainder 1/2 cup for later. Mix until combined, pour into prepared 8x8 inch square pan, spread evenly and press down firmly with spatula, compacting the mixture. Set aside to cool. Melt remaining 1/4 cup peanut butter chips in microwave until melted, about 20-30 seconds, frost on top of cooling rice krispies. Immediately sprinkle the white chocolate chips over the melted peanut butter chip frosting. Melt dark or milk chocolate chips in microwave until melted, about 30-40 seconds. With a fork, "sprinkle" the melted chocolate over the mounds of white chocolate chips. Transfer rice krispies to the refrigerator until everything is set. Before serving, take rice krispies out of the refrigerator and let stand on the counter for about 10 minutes. Slice into squares and serve. These are deliciously thick and dense.
Smart Little Cookie Tip:
This is a decadent treat, however, 1 T I Can't Believe It's Not Butter adds 5 g fat to the whole recipe, even if you use 1 T regular butter, that would add 11 g fat, as opposed to the traditional Rice Krispie Treat recipe which calls for 3 T butter at 33 g fat. This is a pretty good replacement and your waist won't regret it!
