Heath Bar Rice Krispy Treats

Howdy!

So this lovely Labor Day weekend, I was out shopping with my good friend Kelly. She wanted some wall art for her apartment, having little luck, when my blood sugar got low, and I wanted something sweet! Now during the week, I probably would have gone for some fruit, a granola bar, etc, but it’s the weekend. And not just a regular weekend, a HOLIDAY weekend… time for sweet treat! As we were checking out at Homegoods, I noticed that on their table of random items at the checkout, there were Rice Krispy Treats… it was perfectly clear what I would be making. So we finished checking out, headed to the grocery store to get the ingredients (and we got free marshmallows, woohoo!) and headed home to make the tasty treats! But not your average Rice Kripsy Treats… I made them with HEATH BAR!!! I did also make regulat ones (I can’t resist a classic), and both were ever so tasty! So let’s get to making them…

Heath Bar Rice Krispy Treat Ingredients

You’ll need to…

In a large bowl, measure out your rice krispies, and set aside. In a large sauce pan, melt your butter on low heat, stirring constantly to ensure the butter doesn’t burn. Once the butter is melted, add your marshmallows and melt completely, stirring constantly.

Once your marshmallows are melted, pour over your rice krispies and mix well until fully incorporated. Pour in ¾ of the bag of Heath Bar pieces, and mix until well incorporated.

Press the mixture into a greased 9×9 pan (or a 13×9, depending on how thick you like your Rice Krispy Treats.) I put a piece of parchment paper on top of the treats, and pressed it into the pan. That kept my hands and the treats clean and mess free!

Top with the remaining Heath Bar Pieces. Melt the chocolate chips in a small bowl in the microwave, and drizzle on top of your treats.

Let cool for about 30 minutes before serving!

The pictures turned out a bit blurry (my next big investment is going to be a nice digital slr camera, bear with me til then…) but these are SO DELISH!!! I also made regular plain rice krispie treats, also delish!!! But I’ve been dying to make something with Heath Bar, and this was the perfect opportunity to take a classic, and put a tasty and new twist on it! And if you’re looking to make regular rice krispy treats, you can use this same recipe, just don’t ass the Heath Bar Pieces. I topped my regular ones with chocolate, because I live in a house full of chocolate lovers, but you don’t have to do that for the regular ones either!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial on these tasty treats, and I hope you make them for everyone you know! I promise they will be a hit! I made them on Saturday afternoon, and they were gone by Sunday!

I’m off to enjoy the end of my holiday weekend, but y’all enjoy, and have a great rest of your Labor Day!

Love,

Katie
