When it comes to luxurious sweets, truffles, cheesecake and chocolate dipped goodies top the list for me. Don’t worry — just because a dessert or treat ranks high up on the luxurious list doesn’t mean it has to be difficult to whip up! In fact, easy desserts are kind of my “thing”. I don’t like to spend hours in the kitchen cooking, though I enjoy creating recipes, but I also want to enjoy time with my husband and kiddos. Easy-peasy recipes are a must!
These yummy, chocolate-dipped streats are also perfect for thoughtful, homemade gifts. I remember when my teacher gave me a rice krispie treat as a gift. It was super special and made school seem a little less cold and unwelcoming. Do you know someone in your life that could use some rice krispie treats?
The amazing flavor of these treats kind of remind me of my favorite boxed cookies. Seriously, I know boxed goodies are not good for you, but these are a once in an every four years treat. So, if you love those amazing chocolate-covered cookies with strawberry-filling inside, I can guarantee this will be one of your favorite rice krispie treat recipes ever! Plus, it tastes more adultish and you don’t have to feel so silly for saying, “Oh, yeah. I am eating Rice Krispie Treats.” Nope.
