Am I the only person who can’t seem to stay out of the kitchen when I have way too much other stuff to do?
Like packing for a week of camp with the kiddos?
And cleaning the house so the husband doesn’t have to go stir-crazy while we’re gone?
And getting all the laundry and dishes done so they’re not waiting for me when I get home??
Oh, I’m not?
Yesterday I decided that making Rice Krispies treats sounded way more fun than packing and cleaning.
First I made Andrew a pan of plain ones for the week (you know, so he doesn’t forget about me!)…
And then I decided to make a pan of Nutella-swirled ones for you guys.
Ok, ok… they might have been for me. But, I totally would have shared them with you if you were here!
As it is, you’ll just have to make some for yourself and pretend I shared them with you.
Nutella-Swirled Rice Krispies Treats Recipe
4 tablespoons butter
1-10oz bag large marshmallows
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
8 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Line a 9×13″ pan with foil and butter the foil generously; Set aside.
In a large bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for about 40 seconds. Stir in the marshmallows, coating with the melted butter and microwave an additional 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring after 45 seconds.
Stir the marshmallows well, until they are all smooth. Microwave a few seconds more if they aren’t smooth yet!
Drop the Nutella into the melted marshmallow mixture and microwave for another 20 seconds.
Pour in the vanilla and stir a few times, just to spread out the Nutella a bit. Don’t worry about mixing it all in.
Stir in the Rice Krispies until everything is evenly coated. Scoop the mixture into your greased 9×13″ pan and press down gently (get your hands wet and then shake off the excess water to make this process the least messy!).
Let cool for a bit before cutting for prettiest results. Or dig in right away if you have no one to impress!
