Nutter Butter Krispie Treats

I tend to be a fairly predictable person.

I, generally, don’t “keep people on their toes”. I don’t “fly by the seat of my pants”.

 

I like the norm.  The status quo.  A schedule.

I work well with structure and repetition.

That doesn’t translate into boring…I am just prepared.  Isn’t that what we try and teach our children?

 

When people say they are looking for “spontaneity” and “excitement” I just don’t get it.

I have never been that person.

 

I like what I like, I do what I do, and I don’t need anyone coming in all willy-nilly messing up my order.

Don’t pop over unannounced.  I don’t have a “pop over-able personality”.  I need time to plan.  To  prepare.  To “wrap my mind” around the fact that you are coming over.

You know, to go over possible talking points in my head…to plan snacks…to choose a nail color.

I don’t do spontaneous vacations.  The thought of a get up and go trip gives me anxiety.  There is far too much to do before a vacation.  I need weeks, if not months to prepare.  I mean it takes me days to pick out my “airplane outfit”, which is totally a thing, by the way.

 

I hear people when they are talking about finding a boyfriend or a husband, “He needs to be spontaneous”….why?

Trust me you do not want a spontaneous husband…one who is always going to be the “fun” parent while you are stuck doing homework and dishes.

 

I am still a fun person.  At least that’s what I tell myself.  I just like to plan my fun.

 

So back to predictability…

You come here and you know what you are going to get.  That’s comforting.

I mean, what if I got all spontaneous and decided to make a cake out of beets or something.  You would be disappointed…

And my goal is not to disappoint you.  Along with being completely non-spontaneous, I am also quite needy, apparently.

 

So in keeping with tradition around these parts, I have made another krispie treat for you.

It’s a good one.  Really good.

Nutter Butter Krispie Treats.

I nailed it.

 

First get you some Nutter Butter cookies.  These are my husband’s most favorite store-bought cookie, behind the Golden Double Stuf Oreo and the Samoa Girl Scout.  Man loves him some preservatives.

You will need a whole pack of these lovies.

And then it might hurt your heart a little, but you have to chop them to smithereens.

Now go about making rice krispie treats as you normally would, but mix in the cookies…

Once you have your cookies, krispies and marshmallowy mix together, press it into a prepared pan…

When it is ready, go ahead and cut it into squares.

And it’s very important to taste test.

Nutter Butters + Krispies + Marshmallows = love.

    oh holy moly – they look amazing. And don’t pop in on me. If you do, don’t mind the toys, the dog hair and the cheerios-as-a-snack.

    I didn’t think it could be done. Take my all time favorite treat in the world …..and make it even better ! I will have to do multiple taste testings on this one to make double damn sure 🙂
    And on the “drop in unannounced” attitude? I suggest. No. dont do it. Thank you. I wholeheartly agree ! You took the words right outta my mouth. The only way I would enjoy an unexpected visitor was if they stuck that pan of krispie treats in the door first……then and only then I would consider letting them in.
    Unless, it was my daughter, she is welcome at any time unfortunately the only thing she brings is laundry ! God love her.
    I hope you have a fabulous day all planned out with no surprises !

  3. I am the same way, I hate when people say they will just pop in if they are passing by. No I need a call or warning, I also hate not being able to plan for things. Trips, I need to be able to make lists, and go over them and be ready. No last minute stuff for me. I so hate that. And I love knowing you are going to be making stuff I like so yay you!

  4. I’m just like you with the need for structure and plans. I get upset when people suggest getting together in an hour…noooo…I had other things in mind for the evening!

    Food is different though! I always want to try new recipes. This one looks great. I remembe adding peanut butter to the melted marshmallow mixture as a kid. This takes that one step further! Yum!

  5. I’ll take the predictability. I made red velvet cupcakes with beets, and didn’t care for them. So please leave the beets out of your baked goods!! And give me about a pan of these, because I could totally put them down all by myself!

    Im with you. My husband grew up in a house when they take trips they drive as far as they can and then “find a hotel” when they get there. Not happpening with me I have to know where I am going to rest my head ahead of time. The “airplane outfit” totally a thing I have it also. Great treats. LOVE your blog and recipes. 🙂

  7. Dang, those look good, I LOVE Nutter Butters. BTW, your intro CRACKED ME UP. Just yesterday, my daughter and I were looking for some V-Day treats for her to bring for her teachers, stumbled across a recipe that called for beets. When I explained to her what those are, we both went ‘Yeah… no.” lol

  8. I totally get planning for a trip, I dont do spontaneous its just unnerving…predictable is much better..and these nutter butter cookies, totally NOT predictable otherwise everyone would be making them all the time because of their awesomeness. Sadly most people are making regular krispy treats and missing out on this goodness. Thank you for sharing your “spontaneous” side

  9. What a great idea – I had never thought of putting other things into rice krispie treats. They look delicious and I’m sure would be a big hit with my kids! Thanks for sharing.

  10. This sounds like a perfect combination! I like knowing I will always find something sweet and delicious when I come visit your blog…..your predictibility in that sense keeps me checking back 🙂

  11. I am the exact same way. I am such a planner that when my set schedule is thrown off I go a little crazy. Rice Krispie treats are good – they just so happen to be my old stand-bys! My favorite part is definitely taste testing the end pieces. Mmmmmm! 😀

  12. The idea of a pop-in scares me. Seriously. Our doorbell rings and I “shush” everyone and run to the peephole to assess the situation. Who ARE these pop-in people?

    I’m pretty sure my son would faint if I made these. You are the QUEEN of the KRISPIE!!!

    These are the bomb!!! I am so thankful that I opened my Google Reader before I went to the grocery store today. I immediately added mallows & Nutter Butters to my shopping list and made them as soon as I got home. My taste buds want to say, THANK YOU! 🙂
