Have you ever had flavored rice crispy treats?
I had never even thought about tweaking the original rice crispy recipe until I discovered Pinterest. (Pinterest is a black hole for me sometimes!) I could not believe how many unique recipes existed for rice crispy treats. I mean some people really go all out. I on the other hand like to keep things simple.
I decided the easiest way to add some uniqueness to my treats was to add flavored syrup. Torani recently sent me two bottles of sugar-free syrup to try out: Pumpkin Pie and Hazelnut. I had already been adding Torani syrups to hot chocolate and coffee on a regular basis (I use the sugar-free when I am dieting), but until now had not tried them in food. I must say the hazelnut rice crispy treats turned out quite tasty. The best part is you could use any Torani syrup flavor in your rice crispy treats.
Hazelnut Rice Crispy Treats
6 cups rice crispies and/or rice chex
1/3 cup butter
7 oz jar of marshmallow cream
2 tablespoons hazelnut syrup
Melt the butter, then add marshmallow cream and hazelnut syrup.
Once these are mixed together well add the rice crispies.
Blend well and then pour into a greased 9×13 baking dish.
Spread the mixture out evenly and let cool.
