The Original Treat

July 2nd, 2011

I’m not sure if any of you know that I was born in America.  I’m also not sure if any of you really care but it does explain my need to over share with strangers, be loud, eat peanut butter straight from the jar and crave truly, hard-core, sugary treats.  And so I bring you the Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treat!  Many of you would have eaten something similar in the vain of the disgusting, pre-packaged LCMs but these are so, SO much better.  They are also dead easy to make and totally moreish so consider yourselves WARNED – do not make these unless you have many, many friends coming over or unbelieveable self control because once you start – you can’t stop. In fact I am eating one as I type this…sooo good!  Anyway here we go with the recipe:

The Original Treat

3 tablespoons butter

1 large package of white marshmallows (approx. 40 marshmallows)

6 cups Rice Bubbles

Chocolate Layer

250 grams dark chocolate

3 tablespoons butter

Grease well a 13 x 9 inch brownie or lamington pan.  To make the treats melt the butter and marshmallows in a saucepan until completely melted.

Add rice bubbles until coated and, using a buttered spatula evenly press the mixture into the pan. (Or a hot pink silicone one that does the trick nicely! boo-yah!)  Cool in the refrigerator while you make the chocolate layer.

Place chocolate and butter in a small saucepan over low heat to melt.

Keep stirring to prevent scorching the butter and chocolate and make sure it doesn’t boil.  Once melted and smooth, pour over rice krispy treats and smooth out to form an even layer.

Place back in fridge and wait at least 2 hours before cutting into small squares and serving.

I ate three more while writing this and am about to go and have another as a reward.  CLEARLY I have NO self control whatsoever – see what I mean about the over share??
