Reese’s Cup Rice Krispie Treats

Lately my posts have been a lot more savory and that’s ok, a girl’s gotta eat, but when it comes to matters of the heart (and stomach) sweets will always win out for sure. Yesterday at church I started teaching the 7 year old class, it was so much fun! Not really being sure of who or how many kids would show up I wanted to be prepared with a little something special to start our year off right. After a quick Facebook poll and a trip to Target Saturday night I made Rice Krispie Treats, but with a slight twist. They turned out delicious as always, with just a hint of peanut butter and chocolate. It’s no surprise they disappeared in minutes and the kids asked for seconds! Next time you need a quick dessert or snack to share but want to mix it up just a bit, I recommend giving these a try. Enjoy and happy no baking!

Ingredients:

3 Tbs butter
1 10 oz. package of marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
12 Reese’s Miniatures, frozen and chopped

Directions:

In a large microwave safe bowl melt the butter on high for 45 seconds. Add the marshmallows, toss to coat and microwave for 45 seconds, stir and microwave another 45 seconds. In a large bowl combine the cereal and marshmallow mixture. When it almost comes together toss in the chopped Reese’s cups and press into a greased 9″x13″ pan. Cool completely, cut into squares and serve.

Yields 16-20 treats
