What’s In My Pantry?

Irresistible Recipes

Don’t worry I am not actually going to talk about everything in my pantry! Just a little family staple called NUTELLA. Growing up I had never heard of this chocolaty goodness (SO deprived!) It was just another added benefit to marrying my husband.We do buy it in Costco size proportions….Hey one never knows when a natural disaster might occur and this stuff is gold. Nutella is a Perfect addition to homemade crepe Sunday breakfasts, on toasts/breads, in homemade ice cream recipes, in toasted peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and now with rice Krispy treats.  And it’s healthy because it is technically hazelnut spread with a “hint” of cocoa. I know who am I kidding, but everything in moderation right? We made these last night for Family Night and success!

NUTELLA RICE KRISPY TREATS

INGREDIENTS

6 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
1 (10.5 oz) bag mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter

1 Tbsp. shortening

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and marshmallows together until smooth.
  3. Once marshmallows and butter have melted together add Nutella and stir until well combined. (DO NOT OVER COOK THIS or it will be very hard)
  4. Pour marshmallow mixture over the cereal. Stir to coat evenly. Press into a greased pan.
  5. To make topping, heat Nutella, chocolate chips and shortening in a medium sauce pan over medium-medium low heat until smooth. Spread over the top of Rice Krispy Treats.
