Nutella Rice Crispy Treats
If you love the popular chocolate hazelnut spread, then you’re going to want to buy the largest jar available, because Nutella Rice Krispie Treats are just about the best thing to happen to Nutella since… well, Nutella. And you only need four ingredients.
how to make Nutella Rice Krispie Treats
- Spray a large bowl with cooking spray or rub with butter or Crisco. Add 4 2/3 cups Rice Krispies cereal. Also grease an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking pan and set aside.
- In a saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of salted butter on medium-low heat. Remove from the heat as soon as the butter melts.
- Add 1 cup of Nutella and 10 ounces of marshmallows. Return to the stove-top over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until melted and very smooth.
- 10 ounces of marshmallows equals 6 cups of mini marshmallows OR about 40 regular marshmallows
- TIP: Remove the pan from the heat just the before the marshmallows are fully melted and stir, using the residual heat to completely melt the marshmallows. This will prevent you from scorching the mixture.
- Pour the Nutella, butter, and marshmallow mixture over the cereal. Stir gently until the mixture is very well combined. Transfer to the prepared baking pan.
- Use a spatula to evenly press the cereal treats into the pan. Let cool completely, about 2 hours. You may also chill in the refrigerator. Cut into squares.
