Popcorn Krispie Treats

Popcorn Krispie Treats from Jen's Favorite CookiesI have never been a huge fan of plain krispie treats. They’re just so… boring.

Which is why I totally prefer Scotcheroos or these freaking amazing Samoas Krispie Treats. They have all that extra flavor.

Well, and sugar. Let’s be honest.

I just can’t bring myself to make them plain. I’m always thinking of something to put with them to make them more interesting.

My favorite thing to mix into krispie treats, honestly, is popcorn.

Hear me out.

The popcorn makes the treats chewier. And, strangely, kind of creamy.

Your friends will think they are marshmallows. Only you will know the secret.

I made these krispie treats with mint m&m’s because it’s March and because I like mint. I added green food coloring to the white chocolate because it’s March and because I like green.

I was sort of amazed by how quickly these disappeared. I think I ate three of them in a row, and when I went back to the fridge a little while later, the pan was empty.

Someone ate the last one but left the pan in the fridge. Does this happen at your house too?

I wish I had secretly made a second batch and put them in the secret fridge. How can I hide an entire fridge?
