I’ve really never met a dessert I didn’t like, and that’s especially true for anything involving marshmallows. One of my all time favorites are fresh rice krispie treats (not those sugar-loaded pre-packaged kinds!), because they are so easy to make and are the perfect match for my sweet tooth. Usually, I’m pretty happy with the traditional cereal and marshmallow version, but lately my eyes have been opened to all the possibilities when it comes to dressing up this simple dessert. I’ve rounded up a dozen recipes that will get you rethinking that plain batch of rice krispies!
1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Chocolate and peanut butter- a pair that’s rarely rivaled. This chewy treat is made without marshmallows, but you wouldn’t need them anyways.The peanut butter does a great job of holding it all together, and is topped with a thick layer of sink your teeth in chocolate.
