I have a favorite food website. And get this, it’s local, folks! The Perks of Being Us is a husband-and-wife team who have the best culinary/fancy drink website and social media presence. Follow them on IG @the_perksofbeingus or their website-http://www.theperksofbeingus.com.
They call their website a place for “cooking and cocktailing.”
My husband doesn’t like sweets except for the apricot pie I make at Thanksgiving and Rice Krispie treats. So you’ve seen that first recipe. Now here’s a twist on Rice Krispie treats. With chocolate drizzle! Hallelujah!
Chocolate and Sprinkle Topped Rice Krispie Treats
Used with permission from www.theperksofbeingus.com
- 8 TB. salted butter
- 26 oz. mini marshmallows (1 10 oz bag and 1 16 oz bag)
- 18 oz box of Rice Krispies
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips (can substitute semi-sweet chips)
- cooking spray
- Assorted pink, white, and red sprinkles.
- Slowly melt butter in the stockpot. Once melted, add in all the mini marshmallows and stir with a wooden spoon.
- Once the marshmallows are melted, pour in Rice Krispies, a third at a time, continuing to stir.
- Working quickly, fill the open cutters to the top, pressing mixture down. Slip the shapes out. Continue until all mixture has been formed into shapes. If the mixture starts to harden, turn on heat just enough to warm the mixture to soften it again. Allow shapes to set up.
Directions for chocolate and shapes:
- Melt the chocolate chips on half power in the microwave. Start with 2 minutes, and then repeat at half pour for 1 minute at a time, stirring, until smooth.
- Place baggie in a cup, with the sides turned down, and pour the warm chocolate into the bag. Snip the end of the bag.
- Squeeze the chocolate using a smooth back and forth motion over the hearts making sure to get some of the chocolate on the sides.
- Sprinkle with assorted pink, white, and red sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to set up. If the kitchen is warm, you may need to place it in the fridge for a few minutes.
- Store the chocolate-covered hearts in an airtight container, between sheets of parchment.
