Rice Krispie Trio

I had a few Rice Krispie Treat recipes bookmarked so I decided it would be fun to cut each recipe in half and make all three at once. Rice Krispies are one of those treats that you can do just about anything with. I made Nutella Krispies, Peanut Butter Cup Krispies, and Pumpkin Pie Spice Krispies. There wasn't a bad one in the bunch! YUM!

Nutella Krispies
Recipe from Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
1 package (10 oz.) regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup Nutella
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in Nutella until melted.

Add cereal. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until well coated. It helps to spray a little nonstick cooking spray on the spoon to keep it from sticking.

Using a sheet of wax paper, evenly press mixture into a 13 x 9-inch pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cool and cut into 2-inch squares.

Peanut Butter Cup Krispies
Recipe from Cookies and Cups

8 cups puffed rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
1 (10.5 oz) bag mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
21 peanut butter cups unwrapped
1 cup peanut butter chips (melted)

Line a 9×9 pan with foil, and spray lightly with cooking spray.

Place your unwrapped peanut butter cups face down in your prepared pan. (You might need to cut some in half to make them fit nicely.)

Over low heat melt your butter. Add your marshmallows to the melted butter and stir until marshmallows are melted.

Remove from heat and stir in your peanut butter. When the peanut butter is incorporated stir in your krispies.

When combined dump the krispie mixture on top of the peanut butter cups and press evenly in to pan. Let sit for at least 15 minutes to cool and then flip the pan upside down releasing the krispie treats.

Peel foil back off krispies. Drizzle your melted peanut butter chips on top of the krispie treats and let set before cutting into squares.

Pumpkin Spice Krispies
Recipe from Cookies and Cups

1/4 cup salted butter
1 (10.5) oz bag mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Spray 9x9 pan with non-stick spray.  Over med-low heat melt your butter. Once your butter is melted, continue to cook until butter starts to brown.
It will turn a golden brown color and develop a nutty aroma. Be careful not to burn. Once the butter begins to brown it can burn quickly. Stir up any brown bits. Add the marshmallows and pumpkin pie spice. Stir until marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat and stir in rice krispies.

When mixed spread the krispie mixture in your prepared pan. Spray a sheet of wax paper or parchment with non-stick spray and gently press the krispies down evenly. Let cool for 30 minutes and then cut into squares.
