I love Rice Krispie treats.
Like, love them so much I can’t stop eating them until they are gone. It’s bad people.
Bad for the jeans in my life that is. Me on the other hand…
well, I am good with more krispies in my life.
I should probably stop making them when no one is home with me.
Today’s White Chocolate Reese’s Krispie Hearts will make you want to eat the entire batch in one day. What? That’s not normal to do?
This batch of rice krispie treats starts out like a regular pan of krispies, but at the last minute you add a box of white chocolate pudding into the melted marshmallows. Pour in the cereal and stir until coated. Go ahead and press the hot mixture into a buttered pan. Yes, go ahead and lick the spoon. You know you want to.
But…you probably are going to burn your tongue. I know, because I do it every single time I make krispie treats.
I was at Target the other day and I just couldn’t resist buying a bag of the Reese’s hearts. Not that I can resist regular Reese’s, but there is something about cute fun shapes that makes me buy them even more. I didn’t have any idea what I was going to make with them. I just knew they had to come home with me. (Please tell me I am not alone in my random candy buying!!!)
Enter the White Chocolate Rice Krispies cooling on the counter. All of a sudden I knew I wanted to share my love of krispies, CandiQuik, and Reese’s all in one glorious ADORABLE treat! You start by cutting the white chocolate krispies into a heart shape just slightly bigger than the Reese’s hearts. Then drizzle the tops of the krispie hearts with white CandiQuik and drop a Reese’s heart on the top. (go ahead and eat the rest of the Reese’s while the chocolate is setting…I won’t tell
Super easy! And so stinking cute!!!
The bonus part of cutting hearts from these white chocolate krispies???
Someone has to eat all the scraps!
It’s a rough job, but someone has to do it. 😉
