What is a Gourmet Rice Krispy Treat?
There’s a reason my boss called these rice krispy treats “Ultimate Rice Krispy Treats.” I’ve always been a big fan of the plain jane variety, but when I tried these years ago, I knew the recipe was a keeper for special occasions.
What Makes These So Good?
Well, of course, there is nothing wrong with the typical rice krispy treat using just butter, marshmallows, and cereal. But sometimes, special occasions call for something a little out of the ordinary. And these totally fit the bill!
You see, these gourmet rice krispy treats have a layer of the original mixture (rice krispies and marshmallows), then a layer of mini marshmallows and caramel, and then another layer of the rice krispy treats you are used to. That’s 3 layers of goodness! They will get your fingers sticky, but look on the bright side. You’ll just have to lick off all that deliciousness.
You can totally make a pan of these for any occasion year-round, but they are super fun for the 4th of July! Especially if you package them up cute and serve them at a BBQ or take them for a firework treat!
Here’s the Recipe!
