If you were not aware, I gave up chocolate for Lent. Lent ends on Easter Sunday (2 days ago). I consider chocolate to be one of the main food groups. This, needless to say, was extremely torturous. But, I tested my will power and I did it! I didn’t even cheat on Sundays (like my grandmother says it’s okay to do).
I celebrated the end of my chocolate fast by eating Nutella Rice Krispy treats for breakfast on Easter morning 😀 .
I found this recipe at stickygooeycreamychewy.com! (I love that name by the way!). And let me just say, woah. What a recipe!!
I made 1 1/2 batches of these.
Here’s how I did it…
I started with 3/4 stick of butter
I cut the butter into pieces and put them into a large non-stick pot over medium heat.
While that melted, I measured out 6 cups of mini marshmallows and added them to the melted butter.
Keep stirring them until they are completely melted.
Remove from heat, then I stirred in an entire 12oz jar of Nutella until completely mixed in.
Add 8 cups of Rice Krispies cereal to this chocolatey goo. (I had to use 2 huge measuring bowls full!)
*TIP* spray your spoon or spatula with non-stick spray before this step!
Stir stir stir! Keep going until evenly coated.
You can put the mix into a greased glass dish, or do what I did.
Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Fill with mixture using a spoon coated with non-stick spray.
Allow to fully cool
eat a few warm & gooey just to test them out first!
They’re ready to serve when fully cool.
These are highly addictive! They will make you crave them in the day, and dream about them all night. (Side Note: I polished off 4 of these while I typed this post. Not kidding.)
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
Do you have a Nutella recipe? Please share the love!!
Have a delicious day!
