Rice Krispy Treats With a Twist

Rice Krispy Treats are one of those things where you just can't stop at one, for me.  I could eat a whole pan with out batting an eye.  I wanted to make something fun with my kids today and decided to get a little creative.  I usually like my krispy treats the plain ol' fashioned way, but I really liked these.  The main thing to remember is to refrigerate them before serving.  That way the chocolate gets a chance to solidify. I bet these would even be yummy at the just about frozen stage. If you like them messy, just eat them straight from room temperature. Either way... delectable!

Rice Krispy Treats With a Twist

3 Tbsp Butter
1 Bag of big marshmallows
6 cups Rice Rrispies
about 3 cups chocolate chips
1 cup toffee pieces (like heath)

In a pot, on medium heat, melt butter, and add marshmallows. Stir constantly until marshmallows are melted.  (be careful not to let them burn)  When melted, immediately remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies. When well combined pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan (I use butter).  Press down firmly making sure that it spreads evenly.  

In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips.  (30 seconds, then stir.  Put in for 15 more seconds and stir... and continue at 15 second intervals until melted) 

Spread over the treats and top with toffee pieces

Tip:  To keep the mixture from sticking to your hands, coat hands with butter.
