Whopper Lover’s Crispy Treats

Whopper Lovers Crispy Treats-1

Could it be? Am I actually developing a sweet tooth. I’m not sure what’s gotten into me, but I think it has something to do with the Whopper Blondies I made earlier this month.  They rekindled my love affair with a candy from my childhood that I didn’t even realize I missed.

Since then I’ve been day dreaming about incorporating them into something else.  Originally Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies came to mind, but they seemed a little too expected.  And then it dawned on me – Whopper Lover’s Crispy Treats.  Inspired by the fantastic Cake Batter Crispy Treats made by the fabulous Jessica of How Sweet it is, I added some malt powder right into the butter-marshmallow mixture along with some crushed whoppers.

The result is a lovely malted version of the original.  If you’re as much of a fan of Whoppers as I am (or even if you’re not, but the idea of chocolate and malt powder sounds appealing to you) I think you’ll enjoy these.  It’s also worth bookmarking to make use of extra candy once Halloween has come and gone.

Whopper Lover’s Rice Krispies Bars
Makes 16 bars

Ingredients:

-Cooking spray
-1/4 cup butter
-1 ½ tablespoons malt powder
-1 10-1/2 ounce bag mini marshmallows

-1 5-ounce package Whoppers, coarsely chopped in a food processor

Method:

Coat a 13x9x2-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the malt powder and marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are completely melted.

Add the Rice Krispies and Whoppers and stir until the mixture is well combined and the cereal is well coated.

Using a buttered spatula, evenly press the mixture into the greased pan. Cool. Cut into 16 squares.

I LOVE Whoppers, too! I admit, I’m not a huge Rice Krispies treat fan, but with Whoppers involved? I’m sure I’d be in!!

Proof positive that malt really is a magical flavor! These look -so- good, they’re only more motivation for me to figure out that elusive vegan malt ball.

You’re going to make a whopper lover out of me if you keep this up! Not that I dislike them they’re just not normally something I think to bake with. These are great to use up extra Halloween candy!
