Tessa’s Tips: It’s Rice Krispy Season

Get creative with your Krispy treats…it’s easy!

Sweet treats are in high demand this time of year. Which means it’s a great time to experiment with Krispy treat recipes. They’re super easy to make and everyone always loves them. It’s also fun to get kids involved in making them – sometimes their ideas sound crazy but end up tasting great.

So go out there and get creative with your Krispy concoctions. Of course you can always play it safe too. To get you started, here are just a few of the recipes I’ve done in the past. Enjoy!

For all the recipes below, start with 5 cups of krispies, 1 bag of marshmallow and a stick of butter.  Melt the butter and marshmallows until completely smooth, then add the krispies and mix.  I’ve learned that it’s best when you add half the krispies and marshmallow mixture in the bottom of a greased pan and then cover with ingredients. Then put the other half of the krispies on top. I’ve given an example using the Chocolate Peanut Butter variety.
