Remember when you were little and your Mom told you not to play with your food? Well my friends, I am here to tell you to throw that notion right out of the window. Playing with your food is fun, and when you are working with things like Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats®, gooey caramel, M&Ms, salted peanuts, dried banana chips, and melted chocolate, you are guaranteed a ton of fun and a mouthful of happiness!

I off course had to get my kids involved in the creation of this awesome snack. I sat down with them and asked what topping they thought would make the perfect treat. Things like peanut butter and jelly, chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker crumbles, chocolate, marshmallow, and peanuts, and the random vanilla frosting and jelly beans were thrown out there. 

But the one that everyone kept coming back to was this one. We are all a little bit hooked on dried fruit lately, and the addition of the dried banana made everyone happy. 

We had such a blast putting these together, and I am not quite sure which had more caramel on it. Us or the Rice Krispies Treats! But one way, or another, it all ended up in our tummies and we all ended up with smiles.


Unwrap your Original Rice Krispies Treat.


Drizzle with the warm caramel.


Sprinkle a few M&Ms on top.


Add a few salted peanuts.


Then a few dried banana chips.


Now drizzle all that happiness with melted chocolate. 

YUM!!!


The individual wrapped Original Rice Krispies Treats were super easy to find at my local Albertson's. Just down the cereal isle, on the right hand side, I found the bright blue box. I love that they sell the individually wrapped ones because Kevin can just grab one and pop it into his lunch bag on his way out the door to work. That way he has a perfect pick me up when break time rolls around.

  1. Oh my, but this sounds incredible. I will be making this during the week, and plan on incorporating vanilla ice cream as well, to create the most decadent sundae ever. The first thing I thought of when reading about all of the dessert components and the fun of digging into this, was that maybe it should become the official dessert of Colorado :)

    1. Oh yes, that sounds like a fabulous sundae!! I need to go pick up some ice cream. I like the sound of this being the official dessert of Colorado. I wonder what we need to do to make that happen?
