Today I am sharing a yummy treat with you all. Sort of a twist on your traditional Rice Krispie Treats. I will be honest I am not a huge fan of Rice Krispies and I also have never been to big on Rice Krispie Treats….. However, my children and my hubby adore the cereal Captain Crunch. So, I thought Eh’ why not make some
“Captain Crunch “Confetti” Bars?” ..
So I did! I tell you what? they push Rice Krispie Treats right out of the water.
Man’ these are so darn good. My kids and hubby loved.. loved… LOVED them.
1/2 bag of Captain Crunch Cereal about 4 1/2 c.
4 tbsp of butter
1 bag of mini marshmallows
1/2 a bag of yellow candy chocolate melts
Take your butter and place it in your pot on the stove, start melting your butter, add in your bag of marshmallows and stir. Then add in your Captain Crunch, mix really well.
Pour your mix into a greased 9 x 13 pan, use a sprayed with Pam, piece of wax paper to place over the top of the Captain Crunch mix. Press down on the mix to smooth out and even out the mix. Next take your confetti sprinkles (I picked out the red, yellow, and blue ones) and sprinkle them on top of the bars. Place the dish in the fridge for 25-30 minutes.
Then melt your candy melts, cut your bars into squares and dip the bottom of your bars into the melted candy melts, then place the bars sprinkle side down onto some sprayed wax paper. Continue this until all the bottom of the bars are dipped, place the bars back into the refrigerator to chill the candy chocolate melts, (approx. 15-20 min.)
