Remember these Reeses Krispies? Well, here’s the next and equally if not more delicious version, Milky Way Krispies!
What better way to use up the last little bit of milky way candy bars than to throw them in Nutella Rice Krispies? These little guys were gobbled up pretty quickly, and I was glad because I have zero self control. Ok, I may not be that bad, but I am definitely tempted by treats in the house.
I was babysitting two cute boys the other day and they really wanted to make a treat. I was racking my brain with what I could make that would use up the last of the candy bars and then I remembered the Reeses Krispies from last Halloween and I knew I could play with that. This version skips the chocolate chips and peanut butter and instead we go for Nutella. If you have yet to try Nutella, please stop reading, go buy some at the store, grab a spoon and dive in while you read the rest of this post. Nutella is that fantastic, you will need it right away.
One important thing to remember is that the chocolate mixture gets pretty darned hot, so please wait a minute or two before adding the cereal and especially before adding the candy bars.
Once you have added the candy bars, please be sure to stir gently and stop as soon as the cereal and candy are well incorporated. The more you stir the more you break down the candy and cereal.
Are Rice Krispies Gluten Free?
You would think that rice krispies, made from rice would be gluten free.
But, Rice Krispies are made with malt syrup, derived from barley, which is a gluten-containing grain.
Most stores do carry a gluten free crispie rice cereal that can be substituted for common rice krispies.
How Long Will Rice Krispies Treats Keep?
Rice Krispies Treats will keep for 2 days at room temperature.
They should be covered tightly or wrapped in plastic.
Rice Krispies Treats can be frozen for longer storage.
