If The Easter Bunny Brought Too Much Candy….

Desserts

Then make my Extreme Rice Crispy Treats! I am so sick of candy around my house right now. So what do I do, I go and make these, I must be crazy. I’ve got to get them out of my house ASAP!

The nice thing about these massive rice crispy treats, is you can use any chocolaty candy bar you’ve got around the house. Trust me, they are ridiculously good. That’s why they’ve got to get GONE!

I toasted marshmallows on top until puffed and slightly golden. Then press in your favorite chopped candy bars. Mine happened to be Snickers and Twix. Reeses would be great too.

I have always loved rice crispy treats growing up. I remember eating them straight from the bowl, no pan necessary!

Anytime I go to Disneyland I make a mad dash to this little bakery that sells the chocolate dipped rice crispy treats shaped in Mickey’s Ears. They are the best around. If you haven’t tried them, give them a try next time!

Extreme Toasted Marshmallow Candy Bar Rice Crispy Treats

12 Cups toasted rice crispy cereal
2 10.5 oz bags mini marshmallows
6 Tablespoons butter

1 Cup chocolate chips
3 Cups mini marshmallows
10 mini Twix candy bars, chopped
10 mini Snicker candy bars, chopped

1. Prepare rice crispy treats according to directions on the cereal box, I doubled recipe. Press into a 9X13 inch baking dish. It will be filled close to the top.

2. Preheat oven’s broiler and position top rack in middle of oven not top (if rack is too close to the broiler, the marshmallows burn instead of slowly turning golden). Sprinkle chocolate chips over rice crispy treats. Sprinkle 3 Cups mini marshmallows over top. Broil in oven just until marshmallows start to puff and turn golden. Watch very carefully, it happens quick!

3. Remove from oven and press chopped candy bars over toasted marshmallows. Let cool for 1 hour before serving. Enjoy!!

    I was JUST about to toss all of our Easter candy in the trash – but this is a much better and less wasteful idea. Yum – they look fabulous. I’m going to make them and promptly give them to my neighbors because my hips don’t need them!

    I’m making these for my husband’s overnighter with the 11 year scouts tonight. I’m going to make them all wild with sugar so they stay up all night and drive my husband in sane. I love it when someone else besides me keeps him up late chatting! Thanks for the great idea. Erin

    Holy moly!!! That looks beyond good! I have your peanut butter banana bread bookmarked and have made it more times than I can count….looks like this one is going to be added in!
    As a matter of fact, I made the peanut butter banana bread as muffins and had them at my superbowl party and I cannot tell you what a huge hit they were! Thank you!

    You have no idea who I am, but I love getting ideas for yummy recipes! So I found your blog through a friend. I have to agree with you…Disneyland’s rice krispy treats with chocolate ears are the BEST!! Everytime we go that is “tradition” to get rice kripy treats as we enter the park and as we leave the park! ha ha! :)YUMMY!! I can’t wait to try this recipe of yours! thanks!

    Shanda,
    Somehow I missed your comment. I don’t remember which bakery sells the rice crispy treats, but if you asked, I’m sure they’d know what you are talking about. They really are pure heaven!

    Michelle @tns
    Seriously, they are sweet! A dentists dream!

    Crazy Lady,
    Thanks for checking in often. Glad to have you here! Thanks for all of your nice comments!

    Hi Emiline,
    I love Rice Crispy Cereal. It’s good in about anything!

    Thanks Deborah!

    Hi Erin,
    Hope those young boys enjoy these sweet treats!

    Our little world,
    Thanks so much for the sweet comment. Glad to hear that banana bread was such a hit at your party. Who can go wrong with Reeses cups, bananas and bread? Winning combo! Thanks again for commenting.

    Thanks for visiting Rachelle
    Darn, wish I would have posted these a little earlier so you could have tried those disney ones, they are so good.

    Melissa,
    Thanks so much for checking in to my blog. Hope you continue to find recipes you and your family will enjoy!

    Hillary,
    Isn’t that the truth. I don’t know of one kid who doesn’t like rice crispy treats!

    chiemi,
    Hope you enjoy these too!

    The Burrell Family,
    Aren’t those Disney one’s the best? Glad to know I’m not the only one who pigs out on those. I seriously stock up any time we go. Thanks for visiting my blog!!
