Earlier today, Bobby and I came up with a new snack. Why not combine his two favorite foods – chocolate and marshmallows? We added them to his new favorite cereal, Rice Krispy Treats which he calls “Snap Crackle Pops.” The result was something between fudge and crunchy bliss. So, here is the recipe from my future chef:
- 1 bag of marshmallows (10 oz)
- ½ bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
- 3 to 5 tablespoons of good unsalted butter
- 6 cups of Rice Krispies
- Toppings as desired – we used candy. Specifically chocolate covered caramels.
Take out a large skillet or saucepan. Heat on low to warm the pan. Add the butter. Melt the butter. Then, add the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Stir occasionally until the mixture is melted. Turn off the burner. Add Rice Krispies. Mix gently. Put in a greased pan. Add toppings. Let cool. Enjoy!
