Rice Krispie Biscotti


The clock strikes 3:30 p.m. It is that time of day again. Those kids will be running through the door at any minute. And they will be starving. And they will ask,

"What's to eat?"

"What's to eat?"

Rice Krispie Biscotti!

In the time it takes to run a load of laundry, you can make these treats for your dear little ones. Don't forget to set a few aside for yourself.

Rice Krispie Biscotti



makes about 20 - 22

3 tablespoons butter
40 large marshmallows - 1 (10 ounce) bag
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
5 - 6 tablespoon half and half
sprinkles

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir to melt. Take pot off heat and stir in Rice Krispies. Let cool until it can be handled without burning your hands.

Scoop out about 1/3 cup of the Rice Krispie mixture and form into a biscotti shape - a thin log shape. Place on a piece of parchment paper to cool. Continue with the remaining Rice Krispie mixture until all biscotti are formed. Let cool completely.

Melt chocolate chips with the half and half in a heat proof bowl over simmering water and stirring occasionally. Dip half of each biscotti in melted chocolate and sprinkle with sprinkles. Place on parchment paper to harden. Store in airtight container.

Rice Krispie treats are a lot of fun as they can be shaped or cut into all kinds of shapes! Love how you dipped them in chocolate!

My kids ask that randomly throughout the day when they are home! What's for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack!
