Maple Butter Rice Krispie Treats... Easter Edition!
I wanted to make something that would serve as a fun addition to our Easter weekend. These Rice Krispie treats are absolutely delicious - the maple butter adds a delicious twist to the classic dessert. Once the Rice Krispie Treats had finished cooling, I used two cookie cutters - a bunny and an easter egg - to add a cute Easter touch to the finished product!
You can purchase the ones I used here: Bunny Cookie Cutter, Easter Egg Cookie Cutter
6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
1 bag of 10 oz. Marshmallows
1/4 tablespoon Butter
1/2 cup Maple Butter
Melt 1/4 tablespoon of butter in a deep saucepan.
Melt bag of marshmallows into pan once butter is melted.
Melt 1/2 cup of Maple Butter into pan. Remove from heat.
Stir in Rice Krispies Cereal. Stir until all cereal is coated.
Transfer into a buttered 13 X 9 baking dish and flatten. Allow to cool completely.
Optional: Once completely cool, transfer treats onto wax paper. Take cookie cutters and cut out your easter bunnies and easter eggs!
