Hi loves! I’ve missed you. Life has been all over the place– mostly due to fun and amazing things happening– forcing me to write less and put some fun projects on hold. They’re still in the works, but just pushed back a little longer. As promised, I have heaps of things to share with you. Let’s start with tasty things, shall we?
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe. I swear I’m not a recipe hoarder (however, when it comes to purses and shoes, I can’t really comment..), but I’ve got quite the stockpile of delicious food things that I can’t wait to share with you any longer!
And can I just say, oh. man. This is a good one to start with. And it just topped my Party Perfect Spinach Dip for most requested recipe at my office.
As you may have begun to realize, I like making variations of traditional recipes, like this other rice krispies upgrade. I don’t like following recipes to a T and absolutely love throwing in additional ingredients or swapping out flavors. Such a rebel. I love trashing up recipes!
If you’re not down to spice up a recipe a bit, keep in mind this upgrade only has four ingredients and is no bake. SO hard to screw this one up, guys.
- 4 Milky Way candy bars (sometimes I’ll add an extra bar to make them more gooey!)
- 1 stick of butter
- 4 cups of Rice Krispies
- 1 bag of milk chocolate chips
- Heavily grease a 13×9” pan with butter, set aside.
- Using a double boiler and stirring frequently, melt the butter and Milky Way bars together. The result should be completely combined and smooth. (You can do this in the microwave, I’d imagine, but use a low power and short increments. Perhaps 1 min on 30% power until combined?)
- Incorporate the rice krispies into the melted chocolate mixture, stirring well. Pour into greased pan and using a rubber spatula or wax paper, flatten evenly.
- Melt the chocolate chips (I used the double boiler method) and pour over the top of the rice krispies. Spread evenly.
- Let sit for a few hours or overnight to solidify. If you’re in a hurry, putting them in the fridge for about an hour speeds the process up, too.
- Once firm, cut into squares and try not to eat them all.
These bars will be gone before you know it. So. so. so. delicious. And they’re easy to customize– try Milky Way Midnight bars + dark chocolate chips. Snickers bars + semisweet chips. Throw some sprinkles or nuts on top. Trash it up! Because you know that’s what I do on the regular.
