Heaven help me, these babies are trouble. How can you say no to an ooey gooey marshmallow covered in a rich creamy caramel and then rolled in rice krispies?
Even the strictest calorie counter can’t resist them!
Curiosity got the best of me when I was making a batch of these lovelies and I had to try a few different variations. I rolled some marshmallows in chocolate rice krispies and some in chopped peanuts. Oh man were they amazing. I also think it would be really good to drizzle chocolate over the top of the marshmallows. The possibilities are endless with this recipe.
So let your family join in the fun and see who can come up with the tastiest combination!
