Slow Cooker Rice Krispie Treats

Welcome Back to Slow Cooker Thursday’s!!! I hope that enjoyed last week’s Slow Cooker Ranchero Pork.  Each Thursday I will bring a new Slow Cooker recipe.  Our lives are always so crazy busy it is nice to have simple, healthy, tasty meals ready when we come in after work, or soccer practice!

This week I have a sweet treat ready for you!!

I don’t really have to mention what a sweet tooth I have.   It’s kind of an obsession of mine.  All things yummy sweets!  So this week I wanted to make a treat for you.

Rice Krispie Treats are simple enough to make but how much easier would it be if you could just pop the butter and Marshmallow in the Slow Cooker and walk away so you can do laundry, make dinner, help with crazy science projects that are due tomorrow and you just found out about it?  Pretty nice if you ask me.  The Traditional method you have to stand over and continually stir.  Now you can multi-task away!

Something else you might not have thought about it, or at least I didn’t until just recently, you can add healthier options to your treats.  I mean I love them mixed with M&M’s and all sorts of different goodies, but this time I went with some better options for my waistline.

This time I used dried Pomegranate Seeds and Honey Roasted Peanuts.  Can I just tell you how AMAZING these tasted?!  I can’t wait to make a second batch for guests over the holiday’s.  They will also make a nice addition to my Christmas Cookie presents for Neighbors!

Simple, Fun, Tasty, and Healthy {sort of}

All the reasons why we love our Slow Cookers!
