Maple Bacon Rice Krispy Treats


One of our most popular mini-donuts is the Maple-Bacon donut.  The mini-donuts have fresh, crispy, hot, savory bacon and then are drizzled with Pure Grade A Maple Syrup.  They are quite delectable!

Recently, when I was asked to help prepare food for a baby shower, I was listing all of the different things I was going to make and trying to come up with something different. I had all of the ingredients for Rice Krispy treats, so I decided to put a "gourmet" spin on them and try something new!  I have made Maple Bacon ice cream a couple of times and it is always a hit!

This is a super easy recipe and took very little time (adapted from the Kellogg's website).

Ingredients:

1 tsp. maple extract (more if you want a stronger maple flavor)

5 slices of cooked bacon, chopped into fine pieces (more if you would like)

1/2 cup chopped Knight Creek Farms pecans (optional)

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows OR 1 Lg. can of Marshmallow cream
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
Directions:

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add bacon and stir.  Remove from heat, then add maple extract. 

2. Add rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares.

They turned out great, the perfect sweet and savory combination!


Stay tuned for the next donut-inspired creation!
