Remember those rice crispy treats you used to devour as a kid? I have found an adult version of sorts, that makes them tastes even better. I saw this over at David Lebowitz food blog, but wanted to kick that recipe up a few more notches. A recipe that even Emeril would be proud of and my friends would devour at first sight.
David added candied peanuts and melted white chocolate.
I changed it by adding salted peanuts, peanut butter chips, sea salt and extra butter.
These are the best combo of sweet & salty I've had by far (well except for my chocolate covered potato chips). You really must try these, and the best part? They are so easy to make.
white chocolate rice krispie treats
recipe adapted from David Lebowitz
6 TB salted butter
5 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
A pinch of sea salt
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
½ Reese’s peanut butter chips (the kind used for baking)
10 ounce bag marshmallows, snipped in half
5 ½ cups Rice Krispies
Melted frosting for decorating (optional)
Spray a 13 x 9-inch (approx 30 x 22cm) rectangular pan with Pam.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
Add the white chocolate and stir until melted; add a medium sized pinch of sea salt, stir.
Add the marshmallows and stir constantly over the heat until completely melted. (If they start to scorch on the bottom, remove from heat and continue to stir, placing the pan back on the heat occasionally, stirring until smooth).
Remove from heat and add the peanuts, Reese’s peanut butter chips and Rice Krispies until well combined. A rubber spatula or flexible pastry scraper works best.
Transfer mix to the prepared pan and smooth over. (I used my hand to push them down evenly into the pan).
Let cool before cutting. I went ahead and frosted them with some basic frosting that was piped on using a Ziploc bag.
