A nice rice krispie treat recipe to try !
- 4 cups Rice Krispies (more if needed)
- 2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
- 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- cooking spray
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons Grand Marnier
- 1 teaspoon canola oil (more as needed)
Coat a 9x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. Also apply a little spray to your cooking spoon.
To make the bars, begin by adding together the brown sugar and butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir for about 2 minutes, until the butter and sugar are melted. Add in the ground cinnamon and stir. Add the miniature marshmallows and stir continuously, helping the puffs to melt. Continue mixing until you have a pale brown mixture that is still rather loose.
Once the marshmallows are fully melted and mixed with the sugar, add in the Rice Krispies, dried apricots and toasted almonds.
Stir quickly to get all of the ingredients incorporated. Turn the mixture out into the 9x9-inch pan, distributing as much as possible using your spoon. Place the bars in the refrigerator and leave them to set for about 30 minutes.
Invert the pan, giving it a good whack to release the bars. Slice into pieces.
To prepare the topping, melt the white chocolate chips in a double boiler over very low heat. Add the canola oil to the chocolate and stir while the the chips continue to melt.
Stir the Grand Marnier into the melted chocolate and use a spoon to stripe the bars on the diagonal, allowing the melted chocolate to drip down the side.
Place the bars on waxed paper to cool. The rice krispie treat recipe is ready...enjoy !
