Ultimate Sweet and Salty Crispy Rice Treats Recipe

What sets these next-level crispy bars apart from your average Rice Krispies Treat? Well, in addition to the traditional buttery-sweet marshmallow and rice cereal base, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers. In other words, we do not use the word “ultimate” lightly.Enjoy these crispy rice treats for an extra-special snack or after-dinner indulgence.

Copycat Little Debbie Oatmeal Crème Pies Recipe

Is this recipe an exact replica of Little Debbie Oatmeal Crème Pies? No.These are better. Rather than thin cakes, we went for oatmeal cookies that pack an almost peanut-butter-like flavor without any nuts. The crème filling completely nails what we love about the prepackaged pies, but takes things further with an almost airy, marshmallow-based consistency. If that doesn’t convince you, preparing these at home is just as quick (if not faster) than a grocery run.

Edible Marshmallow Paint Recipe

This creamy finger paint is cute and so easy the kids can make it themselves. You can get several batches out of one bag of marshmallows, too, so it’s much cheaper than any finger paint you’d find in a store. If things get messy during art time, all you have to do is lick your fingers. The stickiness hangs around, so don’t use this for anything you’d like to keep for more than a day or two.
