That’s a mouthful, right? A delicious mouthful!
Rice krispie treats are quite possibly the best easy-to-make treat, so I went for a fun twist on an old classic with a dash of white chocolate and graham cracker.
To make these treats, you’ll need:
- 3 tbs. (1/2 stick) butter
- 1 tbs. vanilla extract
- 5 graham crackers
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 6 cups crispy rice cereal (aka Rice Krispies)
Keep in mind that this makes a smaller sized batch equal to about 10 small pieces. If you prefer larger pieces, double the recipe.
Start by grinding your graham crackers in a food processor until they are finely crushed. Combine in a large bowl with rice crispy cereal and mix.
Begin melting the butter in a pan on low heat. Add in the vanilla extract and slowly add the marshmallows, mixing well in between. Increase heat slightly if necessary. Once mostly melted, slowly add in 3/4 cup of white chocolate chips – the other 1/4 cups will be used for topping later.
Pour the mixture over the cereal and graham cracker mixture, turning it over with a spatula until well-mixed. Move to a square pan and let cool for several minutes before pressing down tightly. Let cool completely and cut out squares from the pan.
Melt remaining 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds. Stir and replace for another 15-30 seconds if necessary. Spread the melted chocolate over the squares and serve! You can even add some extra graham cracker shavings over the top for a little extra garnish.
I brought these to work, and they were very well received. I’m hoping to plan more rice krispie recipes this summer. They are one of the easiest, most delicious treats you can make.
