Recently on our family vacation I made some really chewy rice krispie treats. They were an awesome hit for everyone that tried them. Definitely a keeper!
Loaded Rice Krispie Treats
10 cups rice krispie cereal
1 1/4 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup chocolate chips
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup salted shelled sunflower seeds, optional
1/2 cup shredded cocounut, optional
1 small bag small marshmallows (8oz)
1 bag large marshmallows
1 stick margarine
splash of orange and vanilla extracts
In a large bowl combine cereal, cranberries, chocolate chips and small marshmallows; mix slightly. In a saucepan melt together large marshmallows, margarine and extracts. Pour sticky mixture over cereal mix. Mix well with greased hands. Press into a well greased 15x10x2 cake pan. Place in fridge to stiffen up. Remove from fridge when cutting into pieces and into serving container. Serve at room temperature.
