White Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats

Since Valentines day is quickly approaching, I've decided to make my next few recipes ones that you could make for this holiday of loving. Because what says "I Love You" more than a rice krispy treat? Nothing. Go ask my husband (although he might venture to say season football tickets or a new golf club speaks more to his heart. So scratch that, don't ask him)

White Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats


To start off I'm giving you one of my favorite combinations: White chocolate and marshmallows. I don't know why, but those two flavors mesh like peanut butter and jelly. You'd think it's be a sugar overload or something but it's not. I'll tell what it is--a white, fluffy cloud of heaven.

So today's treat is packed with this sweet goodness. You get pockets of the melted marshmallows + white chocolate (aka: fluffy goodness). Then there's the bites of straight white chocolate chunks (aka: sugary goodness). The krispy cereal does it's part to hold the team together (aka: crispy goodness). And then powdered sugar just makes sure everybody looks pretty (aka: pretty/more sugary goodness).

There's nothing bad I can say about this. You'll love it. It's delicious, it's pretty, it's something you can make one-handed while holding your crying/clingy/teething 9-month old child (not that I would know...) What's not to love? Go make it. And don't blame me when you have to make a second batch because you happened to eat the whole first one yourself. I know. I've been there. Happy Pre-Valentines Day!

White Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats

White Chocolate Rice Krispy Treats

4 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup chopped white chocolate
6 cups marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
5 1/2 cups rice krispies
3/4 cups white chocolate chips 
powdered sugar (optional)

Pour the rice krispies and white chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until melted. 
Turn the heat down to the lowest setting and add the marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are almost all melted. (this will take a few minutes--low and slow is key for perfect texture) Add the vanilla and chopped white chocolate and continue melting.

Once fully melted, take them off heat and pour over the rice krispies. Stir lightly to combine. Dump into a lightly greased 9x9 pan and let sit 5 minutes. Then go and press into the pan with lightly greased hands.  
Allow them to cool about 20 minutes, then top it all with a beautiful puff of powdered sugar. Enjoy!
