Simple & Delicious Rice Krispies Recipes
September 7, 2011 § 1 Comment
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies is a classic cereal. I watched my mom eat it every day growing up and it is definitely one of my favorites. It was just another cereal, however, until some culinary genius added marshmallows to the mix to transform this breakfast food into a dessert loved by all. Along with this original recipe, the Rice Krispies website contains many other fun and delicious recipes.
I’d like to share with you two of my personal and favorite variations of easy ways to use Rice Krispies in baking. They’re both quick and require few ingredients. Most importantly, they’re sure to be delicious!
1 cup Karo light corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter (I use Skippy)
5 cups Rice Krispies
1 generous cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 generous cup butterscotch chips
-Use large pan on stove
-Bring corn syrup and peanut butter to a boil while stirring with spatula
-Add Rice Krispies and stir thoroughly
-Spray Pam into a 9×13″ pan
-Before Rice Krispies mixture gets too cool, pour into pan and distribute evenly
-Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips in a bowl in microwave (usually about 1 minute, stir, 1 more minute)
-Spread on top of Rice Krispies, cool, cut and enjoy!
Seven Layer Bars:
1 1/2 sticks of butter
10 honey graham crackers (I use Honeymaid Original)
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk (I use Borden’s)
*1 cup shredded coconut (*I prefer no coconut!)
-Melt butter in saucepan (do not boil) *preheat oven to 375 degrees
-Pour into a 12×16″ cookie sheet (with edges)
-Crush graham crackers in a baggie with a rolling pin; consistency should be very small crumbs
-Pour crumbs evenly over butter; shake pan to make sure all butter is covered (use one more cracker if necessary)
-Sprinkle Rice Krispies evenly over crumbs
-Sprinkle chocolate chips and butterscotch chips evenly (I always use more than a cup of each!) 🙂
-Drizzle entire can of condensed milk over ingredients (tip: puncture a hole on one side of lid and a smaller one across from it to let air escape for easier pouring)
-Bake for approximately 13 minutes on 375; the condensed milk should be a caramel color and bubbly
-Cool, cut into squares and enjoy!
