Dangerous. White chocolate M&M’s are dangerous! These M&M’s have been popping up all over the blog world lately since Easter is right around the corner and all the holiday candy is out. They are too good to be true and I had to pick up a bag. What also is too good to be true is I also been craving rice krispy treats. Random right? My best friend makes the best kind that are super gooey. I wanted to make my treats a little different. I figured peanut butter and chocolate is always my favorite combo. With the white chocolate, almond butter sounded like the right pair for these treats. I cut back on the butter and added more almond butter when I was melting the marshmallows. Mix in the white chocolate M&M’s and you have a perfectly delicious treat. Great for Easter or just because they sound so darn good right about now!
Rice Krispy Treats with Almond Butter and White Chocolate M&M’s
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup creamy almond butter with sea salt
3 cups miniature marshmallows
3 cups crispy rice cereal
2-3 handfuls of white chocolate M&M’s
Spray a 9 inch square glass baking pan with cooking spray, set aside.
In a large pot melt butter over low heat, stirring until butter is melted and brown. Stir in almond butter quickly, then add marshmallows stirring until melted and combined. Remove from heat and mix in crispy rice cereal until all combined and cereal is coated. Add a few handfuls of M&M’s and mix quickly to combine. Pour into a square baking pan and spread evenly. Cool completely and cut into 16 squares.
Even though you should let them cool completely, you should try them after about 10 minutes. The white chocolate M&M’s will melt in your mouth, since they are still a bit warm.
These are definitely going into work tomorrow!
