Rice Krispies Treat Hack #1: Fluffernutter

What the fluff ever happened to Rice Krispies treats? These were some of our favorite lunch box treats when we were younger, yet for some reason they frequently take a backseat to other desserts. But not only are they delicious, they’re also super easy to make.

So, we’re taking it upon ourselves to help get these underrated classics back in the spotlight by giving them a Mouth-watering upgrade. Bake sales beware – these indie hacks are about to make you snap, crackle and pop-ular.

First up, Fluffernutter Rice Krispies Treats! Yep. Peanut butter and bacon and marshmallows all in one delicious recipe…

Fluffernutter Rice Krispie Treats

1 half stick of butter (4 tablespoons)
1 package of Vanilla Bean Marshmallows (6 ounces)
1 jar of Fluffernutter
5 cups of Rice Krispies
2 packages of Bacon Peanut Butter Cups (12 cups)

Directions

1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat.
2. Add marshmallows and turn heat to low. Stir until completely melted.
3. Add Fluffernutter. Stir until smooth.
4. Add Rice Krispies. Stir until mixed evenly.
5. Pour into a greased 9x9 pan and carefully smooth out so it is even in the pan.
