I love rice krispy treats! Not the thins ones, either. I like them thick. As in a double batch in the same size pan as a single recipe thick. I always add vanilla and extra marshmallows, too. On more than one occasion I have had a child tell their mother, “Mom, her’s are so much better than yours.” Most have asked me what I do different; only one got upset.
As I went to the pantry to get the ingredients for a fresh batch, I spotted a jar of Nutella. “That could be really good.”, I thought, “Let’s try it!” I didn’t use enough Nutella or vanilla on the first batch. The second turned out divine!
1 stick butter
2 – 10 oz bags miniature marshmallows
1 – 13 oz jar Nutella
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 – 12 oz box Rice Krispies
Melt butter & marshmallows in large heavy pot over medium heat. Add in Nutella until blended. Stir in vanilla. Mix in cereal until well blended & coated evenly. Press into 9×13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
All to set for an hour then cut into squares.
* I use wax paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray to press treats into pan.
