Did you see that Ferrero is offering to pay people to move to Italy and become a professional Nutella taster?! Is that the perfect job, or what?! (If you haven’t seen this, you can find the article on my Facebook page! While you’re there, toss me a like!) And if you haven’t noticed, I really like to put Nutella on pretty much everything, so why not make Nutella Rice Krispie Treats?
I love to make Rice Krispie treats because they are so quick and so easy. They’re perfect for when you’re in a pinch. You literally just throw marshmallows and butter in the microwave to get them all melty and gooey, and then you mix in the cereal and spread the mixture into a pan. It’s insanely simple and completely foolproof. I am one of those people who is a master of screwing up “foolproof” recipes, but I would be seriously impressed if anyone could screw this one up.
There is only one extra step in this recipe that is not in your standard Rice Krispie treat recipe. You don’t want the chocolate to burn, but you do want it to melt, so I wait to add in the Nutella until the last bit of heating it to just get it melty enough to mix in. Otherwise, it’s as easy as any other Rice Krispie treat recipe, but even more delicious…because that’s how Nutella works!
So if you’re in a last minute bind or if you’re sweet tooth is screaming, keep some marshmallows, cereal, and Nutella on hand at all times (though if you don’t already keep Nutella on hand I’m judging you a little bit…) so that you can whip these up in a flash and have a delicious dessert ready in no time! Indulge without the hard work – you deserve it!
