Butterfinger Rice Krispy Treats

This is definitely dessert season, and I am loving it. Everywhere you turn there are cakes, cookies, pies and other yummy treats. There are office parties, regular parties, potlucks and bake sales. So if you are looking for an easy, childhood flashback inducing, creatively delicious treat, I have one for you. A classic Rice Krispy treat, with a twist. Butterfingers! I made these bad boys with leftover Halloween candy (yes, I still have a ton) but you could use regular sized bars, if you didn't way over estimate the number of kids coming to your house. I cut these gigantic because they were for a bake sale. You could cut them smaller, but why would you want to?

1 bag of mini marshmallows
4 1/2 tbsp of unsalted butter
9 cups of Rice Krispies
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
1 cup of chopped Butterfingers, about 15-20 mini candies.

Grease a 9" by 13" dish. In a medium pot over medium-low heat melt the butter. When the butter is completely melted add in the marshmallows and melt, stirring frequently until the mixture is smooth. Remove the pot from heat and mix in the Rice Krispies. Stir in the chocolate chips and butterfingers. Press the mixture into the dish until the mixture is spread evenly and there are no air bubbles. Let cool before cutting. This makes 12 huge Rice Krispie Treats (or more of a more normal sized treat). (adapted from the Original Treats recipe, the one on the cereal box)

Happy Eating.
