Samoa Rice Krispie treats? Lets face it. It was only a matter of time. I’ve had the ingredients for Samoa on my counter since I made the milkshake. I’m not one for wasting food. So of course I had to come up with some more Samoa recipes.
Rice krispies, or Rice-y Krispies, as my 7 year old insists on calling them, are possibly one of the best desserts EVER! The fact that you can add pretty much whatever you want to them to add to the yumminess factor is even more exciting!
Sadly, I must confess that I have started myself on a new diet. And it’s one that does not involve Rice Krispie treats. If there is a diet that does involve these, please someone let me know!! So far today I have gone with fruits, vegetables, more vegetables, even more vegetables, and topped it off with a black bean burger on pita. It is possible I did sneak in one bite of these treats though. I mean, what kind of person would I be if I gave you a recipe that didn’t taste good!!! So for the benefit of all you lovely people out there. I made myself eat a bite of these extremely decadent Rice Krispie treats. I mean, just look at that picture, that caramel and chocolate sauce just dripping off. It is possible I will be sneaking out in the middle of the night for another bite. It’s not cheating on a diet if you do it after midnight and no one sees is it?
I’ve become a huge fan of toasting coconut. I think it’s better than burning any candle. It makes the house smell like I live inside of a Samoa. Could you imagine?! Sad thing is I would end up homeless due to eating it. Sigh.
Rice Krispies website has a recipe for the Caramel Mallow treats here. Which is the basis for these spectacular dessert treats. If we’re going to go Samoa, it might as well be a Caramel rice krispie treat too right!?
Then it’s the usual cast of characters. Toasted coconut, even more delicious caramel, and chocolate fudge sauce drizzled to perfection.
