I've never been a rice krispies treats person.
I mean, let's face it....they're boring.
Plain Rice Krispy treats are- but Nutella rice Krispies........and Nutella Rice Krispies Treats with a Nutella Fudge Frosting. YIKES. Anything BUT boring. And waist line friendly. Sorry....
Actually I'm not.
Just cut them small...and they're pretty rich, so one or two should satisfy your sweet tooth. For a few minutes at least.
These babies are so easy to throw together, it's frightening...but perfect if you need a last minute desserts or snack to bring somewhere, especially If you want to hear everyone sing your praises.
Nutella Fudge Rice Krispies
5-6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
1 (10.5 oz) Bag mini marshmallows
1/4 Cup Butter
1 Cup Nutella
In a large saucepan over medium low, melt together the marshmallows and butter, stirring until melted together and smooth. Stir in Nutella until well combined.
Pour Rice Krispies into mixture and stir until completely covered and combined.
Press into lightly greased pan. You can use pretty much whatever size you want, depending on how tall you want your Krispies. I halved this recipe and used an 8x8 pan, and they were the perfect height I thought...so maybe a 9 x 13" pan for the whole recipe?
Firmly press mixture into pan.
Stick in the fridge
For fudge frosting:
1 1/2 Cups milk, or semi sweet chocolate chips
1 Cup Nutella
1 Tbsp. shortening
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium low heat, stirring until smooth.
Be careful to not over heat and seize the chocolate!
Spread over your Krispie treats.
Stick it back in the fridge to set up, about an hour.
Cut into desired sizes and watch disappear!
Enjoy and Happy Friday!!!
