Malted Milk Ball Krispie Treats

I realize it has been a while since I had made krispie treats.

I know.

Things haven’t felt quite right for a while now.

 

You see, I am completely addicted to krispie treats…My favorite recipe ever ever ever is THIS ONE.

But here’s the thing, my husband isn’t a krispie guy.  Or a marshmallow guy in general, so….

It was almost the reason we didn’t get married almost 11 years ago, but I was able to overlook that little imperfection.

I know, I know, I am really an adaptable person.

 

So I don’t make krispie treats as often as I would like.  The concessions I make in life really should be rewarded with jewelry and spa days.

 

Anyhow, while he isn’t a krispie treat guy, he IS a Whopper guy.  So I thought I would try and fix his krispie treat disorder by adding a bunch of his beloved malted milk balls into a big pan marshmallow coated cereal.

It didn’t work.

He just ended up eating all the Whoppers.

 

Whatever, more krispies for me.

These really are totally easy.

Just chop up some Whoppers…

And measure out 3/4 cup of malted milk powder…it changes the whole situation…

PhotobucketYou’re only gonna need about 4 cups of Rice Krispie cereal.

PhotobucketThen just go about your usual krispie making routine…

Until your marshmallows are ALMOST melted.  Then add in the milk powder…

You want to get that good and mixed in with the marshmallows, but you don’t want the marshmallows to burn!

PhotobucketAs soon as the malted milk powder and marshmallows are combined take the pot off the heat and add the cereal.  Stir that until it’s coated well with the marshmallow mixture, and then add in the malted milk balls.  You want to add these last, so the mixture cools slightly and doesn’t melt all the chocolate off of the balls.

PhotobucketQuickly press that into a 9×9 pan.  I always line my pan with foil for krispies, because it makes them easier to remove.  Just my personal preference.

PhotobucketLet them cool and that’s it!

    Hi just found your site my family love krispie treats I have made date crispies for many years love to get new ideas. I live in UK are Whoppers similar to maltsers which are chocolate covered malt balls?

  2. When my husband doesn’t like the foods I like, I always tell him it just leaves more for me. This isn’t really a perfect solution, but it does mean I get all the chewy cookies.
