Are “sprinkle krispies” a thing?
If not, they are now!
Rice Krispie Treats with Sprinkles really needed a better abbreviation, because how boring is that? And in anything – like these Nutella Sprinkle Rolls – sprinkles should be in the spotlight.
I’m not sure if there’s anyone out there who dislikes sprinkles. The Grinch?
When my friend Julie and I were younger, we used to seriously strategize on how to maximize the sprinkles we’d get on our frozen yogurt. Instead of just using them as a topping, we would alternate layers of rainbow sprinkles and swirl froyo in our cups. Genius, I know.
I made these little squares of sweetness for a Memorial Day BBQ. They are the perfect dessert to make for a party if you’re short on time! Plus, you don’t even have to turn on your oven.
But who am I kidding! Most of us have made rice krispie treats before. I’m just here to inspire you to add lots of sprinkles.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1 10 oz bag marshmallows
- 4 cups Rice Krispies
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Salt to taste
- Sprinkles (!)
Microwave the butter and marshmallows in a big bowl for one minute, stopping to stir. Continue with thirty second intervals until it is all melted and mixed together. Then, add in the vanilla and salt (and if you want the rice krispie treats colored, this is the time to add in food coloring!). Next, add in four cups of the Rice Krispie cereal (you can do a little more or less, depending on your desired consistency). Begin mixing, and add in lots of sprinkles. Then, press the mixture into the sprayed pan of your choice. I used an 8×8 square baking dish. I added more sprinkles on top, then sprayed a piece of parchment paper (foil would also work) to press down on the treats without it all sticking. Cover and let sit… then enjoy!
