Do you read or follow Kristy Wicks? She has a beautiful California home and does great posts on travel and decor, mostly. She was talking about this recipe that her family has made on repeat during Quarantine on Instagram and I decided to try it! It was too good not to share.
Now, usually when I think dessert I think chocolate, but I am also a big fan of Rice Krispies treats. I will not eat a store bought one, though. They are gross to me. Maybe this is a fun treat because of childhood nostalgia or because it is such a rare treat?
These could not be easier to make, though. I use the microwave and then some patience and that’s really all it requires. If you have a budding young chef in the house they could easily handle this. Pioneer Woman has a nutella version, FYI, too, if that is something you would like.
A big microwave safe bowl
3 tablespoons real butter
10 oz. mini marshmallows (the normal sized bag)
3 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
3 cups of Cap’n Crunch
Put the butter and marshmallows in the bowl. I like to spray my bowl with Pam to help a bit. Get your 13 x 9 ready, too, because things will move quickly. Spray the bottom of that with Pam, too.
Go ahead and measure out your cereals and then mix together so that the cereals are pretty evenly dispersed.
Microwave the butter and marshmallows for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
Quickly take it out of the microwave and stir to combine the butter. I spray my wooden spoon with Pam, too. Trust me, this mixture is sticky!
Quickly stir in the cereals. It may feel like too much cereal but it will work.
Now, press mixture in the 13 x 9. I like to use a Pam sprayed spatula to make the top even.
Finally, be patient. Let it come together on the countertop for maybe an hour or two and then cut into squares.
You thought these were good with just Rice Krispies? Wait til you try it with the addition of Cap’n Crunch!
Let me know if you try it,
