Day 137 : Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

I love a good rice krispie treat, so when I came across these I knew I had to make them.  I realize they are not low fat or calorie and it isn’t going to help my need to diet, but I just couldn’t resist.  They sure do taste good though!   The nutella, though obvious, is not overpowering as I feared it might be with so much of it.

The one issues I had, which really isn’t much of an issue since it turned out fine, was that the nutella didn’t seem to want to melt in.  I put it back on the burner for a little bit while stirring, taking care not to burn it, and ended up with more of a thick caramel type thing but it worked out fine.  I haven’t made many rice krispies so I am not sure how thick the stuff is supposed to be but it did seem a bit on the thicker side.  At least I got a major arm workout trying to stir in the cereal lol.

Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

Ingredients :

  • 4 T. butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 pkg (10 oz.) regular sized marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup nutella
  • 6 cups rice krispies

Directions :

  1. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a saucepan over low heat melt the butter and add marshmallows stirring until they are melted.
  3. Take off the heat and add nutella, stirring until melted.
