Malted Rice Krispie Treats w/ Robin Eggs
Okay lets have a serious discussion. Do you find yourself constantly justifying eating delicious treats? Let me tell you about my inner battles.
October: “I can eat a bag of candy corn a day, they are only around once a year!”
December: “Its the holidays! Who doesn’t gain 5 pounds? Bikini season is months away.”
February: “Girl Scout Cookies? Those are only around once a year and they remind me of my childhood…. i’ll only get one box!”
March: “EASTER CANDY. I’ll just get one bag of robin eggs… oh wow those went fast. Well I have to try the mini ones too I forgot what those taste like. Well those were good maybe i’ll get another bag and bake them into something! It’s for my blog after all…”
It is a vicious cycle. I do think I would rather justify eating stuff then either not have it, or accept the fact that I just can’t live without constant sugar intake. It can’t be very healthy but that is why I enjoy my fair share of green smoothies too. I can definitely justify you making these. Go to the store right now and get 2 bags of mini robin eggs. One for this recipe and one to eat by the handful.
Take 1/2 cup of robin eggs, put them on the side and put the rest in a ziploc bag.
Then make your treats and get them in a pyrex.
Press those extra eggs in the top of your treats… if you happen to eat a few before doing this, no judgement will be taken.
Let cool and cut them into large and delicious treats.
This is making me a little upset that I have eaten all of the robin eggs in my house… the store is just down the street though… Its less than a week until Easter!! Okay okay i’ll stop.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 4 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
- 6 1/2 cups rice krispies
- 1 tablespoon malted milk powder
- 1 10 oz. bag mini Robin Eggs
- Grease an 8 x 8 pyrex for large treats or a 9 x 13 for thinner treats. Measure 1/2 cup of mini robin eggs and set aside. Pour the rest of the robin eggs into a ziploc bag and smash candies until each is crushed into about 3 pieces. In a large pot (teflon is best) melt butter over medium-high heat. Once butter is melted turn the head down to medium and add marshmallows. Stir marshmallows to coat with butter and let sit for a minute. Stir occasionally until every marshmallow has melted. Remove from heat and stir in malted milk. Pour in rice krispies and stir vigorously until evenly coated. Then add in crushed robin eggs and stir until combined. Pour into prepared pan. Take a piece of wax paper and grease one side. Place the greased side down on the treats and press down for an even layer. Take reserved robin eggs and press into the top. Let cool and cut! Enjoy!
