White Chocolate Krispie Treats!
Remember when you were a kid and you came home from school to freshly made gooey crunchy sweet rice crispy treats? Yum! I do! My mom made them perfectly soft and chewy too! Not hard and crumbly.
Well, my little princess and warrior are headed to Nana and Papa's for a few days and I wanted to send a little treat with them. One that wouldn't just get the kids excited but one that would be pleasing to the sophisticated palate as well! Marshmallows, white chocolate, peanut butter bits, dry roasted peanuts and chocolate covered peanuts! Holla! I can see it now, you are intrigued, but hesitant. Don't let the many ingredients intimidate you. This super simple recipe will make you the rock star of the party or class or house or office! Whatever or wherever! And if you don't have one or two of the extra goodies to add...no big deal. Leave it out or add something else...the possibilities are endless!
White Chocolate Krispie Treats
4 Tbl butter
1/2 c white chocolate chips, make sure they are good quality like Ghirardelli
3 cups Rice Krispies
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chocolate covered peanuts
Butter 9X13 baking dish. Melt the butter and white chocolate, over low heat in a large saucepan. . Add the marshmallows and stir constantly with the lowest heat setting. Be patient here people, trust me you don't want the marshmallows or chocolate to burn. When there are just a few little lumps of marshmallow left, remove from the heat and stir in the rice krispies. Now add the peanut butter chips and dry roasted peanuts. Finally, after letting some of the heat escape but still easy enough to work with, stir in the chocolate covered peanuts. Dump into the buttered pan and spread your gooey goodness to the edges.
Enjoy and feel like a kid again!
