A few weeks ago I was sitting in my recliner (Okay fine! It used to be my husbands recliner, but I believe in squatter rules… so now it’s mine!) …doing my Walmart shopping on-line! (The only way one should shop Walmart in my opinion! lol)
I was “finger swiping deep” in the seasonal section, when up popped a package of Maple Mini-Marshmallows! I was so excited! A flavored marshmallow could only mean one thing….A Fall Flavored Rice Krispie Treat!
Not just any Rice Krispie treat…I wanted to pair all that delicious maple flavor with White Chocolate chips and a fun fall sprinkle! A treat that kids and adults alike could enjoy! (Well…the kids can enjoy it if Mom doesn’t hid in the closet and eat them all! Just sayin’…)
So, before the kids get home from school…Let’s get baking!
In a large sauce pan melt 4 Tablespoons butter over medium heat.
Once butter is melted turn heat down to low.
Measure out 6 cups Maple mini marshmallows. I used Great Value brand. (Some may have fallen out of the package and into my mouth! I don’t know how this happens! It’s a mystery.)
Add the mini marshmallows and stir until melted. 1 Tablespoon milk, and vanilla extract, and stir constantly until all the ingredients are combined.
Mixture should be smooth and creamy. The melted Maple marshmallows smell divine! Honestly pure genius whoever thought of flavoring marshmallows!! (So obviously I’m not the inventor…I’m pretty sure a genius knows where they put their glasses!)
Add 6 cups Rice Krispies and remaining two cups of marshmallows.
TIP: The secret to the BEST Rice Krispie treats is this one little gem…adding extra marshmallows! I spent years making rice krispie treats that were hard and not chewy gooey. Since I started adding extra marshmallows and the 1 Tablespoon of milk to the melted mixture…the gooey chewy factor is a solid 10!
Stir the melted marshmallows into the cereal until well combined.
I like to use a rubber spatula when making rice krispie treats. The sticky marshmallow mixture is less likely to stick to it.
Doesn’t that look good?
Add 1/2 cup white chocolate chips! The mixture should be cool enough by now that the chocolate chips won’t melt and they’ll still retain the shape and texture.
Pour rice krispie mixture into a prepare 8 x 8 glass baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Gently press down the rice krispie treat mixture with a rubber spatula or your fingers.
TIP: Spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray and the sticky rice krispie mixture won’t stick to your hands.
In a microwave safe bowl add 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 Tablespoon vegetable oil. Place in microwave at 50% power for 2.5 minutes. Stir until chocolate chips have melted. If additional time is needed just remember to always melt chocolate in the microwave at 50% power.
Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the Rice Krispies. There’s nothing like a little chocolate to sweeten up a sweet treat!
Sprinkle with your favorite Fall jimmies. I love the orange and brown sprinkles…they are so festive this time of year!
Allow chocolate and rice krispies to cool and set up for about an hour. Cut into 9 equal squares and serve.
Aren’t these pretty Maple White Chocolate Rice Krispie Bars? So fun too boot!
And chewy….Oh we’ve got that covered with this recipe! The addition of the extra marshmallows adds to the chewy soft texture of these rice krispie bars.
The combination of maple and white chocolate is fabulous! They go together splendidly!
I love the subtle hint of Maple and the creaminess of the white chocolate chips! The addition of the drizzle and sprinkles adds a splash fun to this Fall treat!
They’re perfect for a Halloween party or to pass out to family and friends as a “Welcome To Fall” goodie!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope the birds, both big and little, at your nest enjoy this treat as much as mine do! You just can’t help but smile when you have a Rice Krispie Treat in your hand!
