Adding three types of marshmallows to these Rice Krispie Treats makes them more delicious and amazing.
These Lucky Rice Krispie Treats are made with triple the marshmallows making them magically delicious.
I have a confession to make, I cannot make Rice Krispie Treats without eating them while they are in the pot. Yep, I take a spoon right to them. At times I burn my tongue a bit but it is totally worth it. There are a lot of treats that aren’t particularly healthy that are totally worth the calories and burned tongues like Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies. I mean is it me or is it absolute torture to wait 5 minutes for your freshly baked Chocolate Chip Cookies to cool down enough to eat? The same torture almost resides with these Lucky Rice Krispie Treats because you have to allow them to set. Or you can be like me and burn your mouth and eat them out of the pot.
I know there are a million Rice Krispie Treat recipes out there and I am now adding a million and one. But these Rice Krispie Treats are good. I added three sets of marshmallows. Of course, there is the marshmallow you have to melt to bind everything together, then I added mini marshmallows, and dry marshmallows to boot! These are absolutely the best Rice Krispie Treats I’ve ever had. No kidding! They are absolutely addictive.
I call these treats Lucky Rice Krispie Treats for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that they look like Lucky Charms cereal. Seeing how St. Patricks Day is coming up, and these Rice Krispie treats seem like something a little leprechaun would enjoy. The second, seeing how I added three different sets of marshmallows and the third time’s the charm, that equates out to luck. Hence, Lucky Rice Krispie Treats. I promise you guys will love them.
I know dried marshmallows can seem to be hard to come by. I actually found a bag at a local grocery store for about $1.50. In case you can’t find them, feel free to buy them through Amazon. You know what else you can do for kicks and giggles? Buy a box of Lucky Charms cereal and add more marshmallows to your cereal. Besides, that is the best part of Lucky Charms cereal, right? They are the best part of these Lucky Rice Krispie Treats too!
