Cocoa Krispies Treats

Making Rice Krispies.

One of the simplest bars to make is Krispies treats whether plain or flavored. I just recently made cocoa krispies ones that lasted only a few days in my house. The chocolate flavor was divine! You can make then in so many varieties with using plain, chocolate or colored rice krispies cereals. You can top them with sprinkles or frostings; even leave them plain. They’re perfect either way.

There are three ways to making the the marshmallow mixture:

  • Stove top – Which I’ve always done. It take a little elbow turning those marshmallows but fun to watch them melt away in a cream in the pan.
  • Microwave – I’ve never tried this one but I hear it turns out good.
  • Store Bought In A Jar – There is no stove top or microwave mess with this one. Just get the Jet Puffed Marshmallow Cream.

Everyone loves them from kids to adults! They are the most timeless simple treat I can think of!
