Nutella Rice Krispies Treats

I think Rice Krispies treats are one of the easiest treats to make for the kids. I probably make them a few times a year since they are a perfect dessert snack for the kids. My husband likes the peanut butter ones the best. So, I figured I would try adding Nutella but I didn't want Nutella all through it so I frosted the top of the treats with Nutella. Since I prefer my treats with a little more marshmallow, I decrease the cereal by a little. I wasn't sure how the kids would like this change but by the end of the day the majority of the treats were gone. I think that is always the best sign.
Nutella Rice Krispies Treats
3 Tbsp unsalted butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
5 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup Nutella spread

  1. Spray a 13x9 pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large pan, melt the butter over low heat.
  3. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
  4. Fold in the cereal until well coated.
  5. Spread the cereal mixture into the prepared pan and press lightly.
  6. On top, evenly spread the Nutella over the cereal mixture.
  7. Allow to cool before serving.
Recipe adapted from Kellogg's

One year ago.................................I made Chocolate Cookie Cutouts.
Did you already know...................
-In 1939, Troop leader Mildred Day came up with the idea of Rice Krispies Treats while discussing a funraiser with Malitta Jensen for their Campfire Girls.
-Mildred Day was an employee of Kellogg's.
-Also, Mildred Day  used Campfire marshmallows in the recipe.
