I’ve realised that inviting people over and telling me 20 minutes before they arrive is a genetic trait of my husband and it’s now presenting itself in my son *slaps forehead* *mutters curses*

Yesterday I had to come up with a very quick dinner and a treat for his little friends. Baking a cake or cookies would take too long, jello takes forever to set and pie takes even longer than forever. As I stood there staring into my pantry I noticed a box of rice krispies in the corner! EUREKA! Rice krispy treats! Quick, easy and done in less than 10 minutes, perfect!

I fancied it up a little with some left over Reese’s Pieces from Easter * Ok ok I keep a secret stash in my underwear draw because that’s the only place none of my kids or the hubs would look in πŸ˜€ You can try adding sprinkles, m&m’s, or whatever you have on hand….well….maybe not sardines.

Here’s my quick recipe!

  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 16 oz mini marshmellows
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 cups rice krispies ( rice cereal)
  • chocolate chips
  • reese’s pieces or m&m’s or chocolate chips for toppings


  1. Melt butter over medium heat.
  2. Add marshmellows and stir frequently until melted.11157480_10155462625375431_3922704741067483146_o11201009_10155462625360431_6835278920603296914_o
  3. Add vanilla and stir.
  4. Pour in rice krispies and a handful of chocolate chips and stir well.11181220_10155462626335431_1979718894280703942_o11121884_10155462626060431_8963093986027091071_o
  5. Remove from heat and pour into a pan and let cool a little.11201000_10155462626510431_1233270786509801748_o
  6. Spray hands with cooking spray or a little oil (this keeps it from sticking to your skin) and press until flat and smooth.11163111_10155462627320431_3282940358116024881_o
  7. Add more toppings on top and press in! Easy peasy!11145124_10155462628365431_9081881690324473289_o

  1. I love rice krispy treats, but somehow chocolate makes everything so much better! These would be a huge hit with my kids (and me too), can’t wait to try it. And I’m glad I’m not the only one that keeps a chocolate stash in their drawer πŸ™‚

  2. Ahh, that is crazy. That is why I always tell my friends not to do a surprise visit if they don’t want to eat instant noodles. And nope, I would not order a pizza. I will feed them instant noodles. πŸ˜›

    I am happy to know that you came up with this idea. I love rice krispies, too. πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing, Charming. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. xx
