In a previous post, I mentioned that I always have stocked in my refrigerator and cupboard the necessary ingredients for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, including the irreplaceable Ion Chocolate. In addition, I always have baklava in my freezer. Yup- freezer. First of all, frozen baklava is Delicious with a capital D. Second, it is actually an amazingly delicious ingredient.
Q: Can basic marshmallow krispy treats get any better?
A: Yes, they can.
How you ask? By adding melted chocolate and crumbled Baklava, that’s how.
The Baklava adds a cinnamon flavor to the treats in the most fantastic way. These treats are decadent and delicious and there’s nothing to them. It’s a new and simple twist combining an American classic (marshmallow krispy treats) and a Greek classic (Baklava) and topping it off with rich melted chocolate. These treats are mature and grown-up…the adult version of the kid-favorite marshmallow krispy treats!
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 10 ounce bag mini-marshmallows
- 6 cups krispy rice cereal
- Chocolate, melted or your favorite chocolate sauce.
- 5-6 pieces frozen Baklava, chopped. (About 1 cup chopped) for topping.
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Lightly spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Prepare batch of marshmallow krispy treats by melting butter and marshmallows over medium heat, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat and stir in krispy rice cereal.
- Spread half the mixture into the prepared pan.
- Drizzle with melted chocolate and 1/2 cup Baklava pieces.
- Spread the remaining marshmallow treat mixture into the pan.
- Allow to cool for 15 minutes before cutting into 24 pieces, then drizzle with melted chocolate and top with Baklava pieces.
- Melted chocolate bars or chips work well for this recipe. Chocolate sauce or Nutella also works great!
