Who doesn’t enjoy a rice crispie treat? I mean really people…they are super yummers.
A little bit ago I stumbled upon coconut flavored marshmallows…
Immediately I thought to myself, “SELF, wouldn’t these be perfect for ALMOND JOY rice crispie treats!”
SO I grabbed a couple of other ingredients and then I whipped up the Fam some of these delicious rice crispie treats.
I hope you enjoy! We did.
Almond Joy Rice Crispie Treats
2 pkgs of Coconut Marshmallows
4 TBS butter
1/2 tsp almond flavoring
6 Cups rice cereal
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup almond slivers
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chip morsels
1/2 cup dark chocolate chip morsels, melted
Pour rice cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
First melt marshmallows and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Melt for a minute. Stir. Repeat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until marshmallows are melted.
Just before pouring the melted marshmallows over the cereal, add the almond extract to the marshmallows.
Pour marshmallows over cereal and stir gently with a spatula. Once they are combined well, add in 1/2 cup of the coconut, the almonds, and the 1 1/2 cups of dark chocolate morsels. Stir until well combined.
Dump the mixture into a greased 9×13 pan. Loosely press the cereal down until it fills the whole pan. Sprinkle the other 1/2 cup coconut over the top and then press it firmly into the top of the cereal.
Melt the rest of the chocolate in a microwave safe container for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted.
Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the cereal.
Let cool completely until the chocolate is hardened on the top.
Cut into bars and share the Almond Joy love.
